      He was never brought in to be a first-team player from the off, so not sure where all this urgency to judge him has come from.

      When I think of Minamino I think of Robertson, Fabinho, Keita etc. players who were given weeks, months even in the background to get up to speed with the tactics and the fitness required to be an integral part of this squad, let's give him some time.

      I personally think when he gets up to speed he will be a great player to take Firmino's role in the side, whenever he needs a rest or if he is playing off form.

      He's long long way to replace Firmino and his influence on our team and play. On the other hand, he will learn from the best.

      Yeh but we have given him a short cut route.  Like Mane and Kieta he hasn't taken the middle stepping stone.  The guy needs time.  He is going to need to compete for time against the best front 3 in football that is a hard task for anyone.   It would be nice for him to make some important contributions in the later rounds of the champions League, an important goal an assist.  But he has time on his side still young.   We desperately need him to come good when Mane and Salah go on the African cup of nations that is about a year away.

      One year is enough for him to get to know his teammates. Come on Taki.

      Thought it was the other way around.

      Totally agree, Naby should have shot himself however Taki was afraid that he will catch Naby's feet. Can't fault him for the effort.

      Yes it was a shame but he looks OK Minamino, just needs more time to integrate in the team, he'll be good.

      He needs a Klopp's pre-season after him.

      No way, Taki was running on to it...watch it again, he either slightly gets put off by Naby and the defender or is was just a terrible shot! I think it was the former!

      I hope he plays a similar role Coutinho had here, sometimes playing in the front 3 and sometimes in midfield. He seems to have the right attributes.

      We all wish he turns out to become our Son.

      I think that will be the week, he should bring some versatility to the forward positions. Initial impressions are they he is a tidy player who works hard. We have the luxury of not needing to rush him through as well as umpteen dead rubber epl games in the last month of the season for valuable minutes in the side

      I hope he plays. I wanna see more from him. He could be what Lallana, Ox and Keita aren't: a creative offensive midfielder that can play deadly passes, kind of like KdB who's the best in this section along with Messi.

      I hadn't thought about that, could he be our AM going forwards?

      He threaded a good through ball to Mane on about 10 minutes.  Mane then got it horribly wrong.

      If Sadio smashes that in the net then those little incidents are the things that can kick start your career.  Sadly it stayed 0-0 and Minamino had another disappointing game.  He looked miles away from players when trying to close them down - doubt we're going to see much of his talents during the rest of this campaign.

      Who was better in midfield Lallana or Minamino, because of the two I'd go with Minamino, Lallana was constantly losing the ball or committing stupid fouls. Yes Minamino is still a bit off the pace but I saw more than enough to get me excited nice link up play, good passing and link up, I think he'll be a very good player for us and I'd honestly play him in midfield for a few games, play him into the AM role, we desperately need more creativity there

      Maybe next year or after the title is wrapped up but miles off the pace at this moment.

      He had a decent first half and then faded in the second, perhaps not helped by the lack of space as Chelsea dropped deeper. I liked how much he wanted the ball, from throw ins he was doing a passable imitation of Bobby.

      Clearly needs to tune in with the rest of the team when it comes to the press, but that's a common theme amongst new signings.

      Looking forward to seeing his development under Jürgen.

      Minamino definitely has more potential than Lallana but but he needs to get to grips with the physicality of the PL which will take a few months.

      Minamino hasn't impressed but he has good potential and skill. He needs a good pre-season.
