      Well the least we can expect, is plenty more practice of breaking through the ten man wall. Its never a given, but I do expect us to get 2 at least, and another 3 points. Hammers are in pretty poor place at the mo, bt not expecting any favours from us thats for sure. 70 + possession and numerous attempts at goal.

      I think we should take pity on Moyes and his hammers,just put 5 or 6 past them.

      Good strong team for this game tomorrow, get it done and dusted and let's just move on to the next one.
      Let's pop their bubbles and grab another 3 points to that magical 19th title.
      Bring it on to a night of floodlights and passion at Anfield.

      The next 3 games should be relatively easy, West Ham, Watford then Bournemouth. Win them and we really are within touching distance. Bitters could be tricky and obviously Citeh away but apart from those the other games are very winnable until the last three, Arse away, Chavs home then barcodes away and even they should not be to much trouble.

      This latest Inside Training video, they show the team doing the rondos/pressing drill as usual, then Klopp has this look on his face as he walks off to begin the closed part of training. It was a good look, a very...focused look.

      I expect a highly prepared and motivated team as usual for Monday, but maybe with a little bit extra.

      Can't wait.

      For some reason I feel Everton away, tougher then City away. We embarrassed them with our kids, and they will have something to prove. I do not want that game to be their highlight reel for their 2019/2020 season review video!!

      Like to see a midfield 3 of Fab, Keita and Ox. Suspect Gini will start but hopefully not, been bang average for the last 6 weeks or so.

      Not expecting to see Keita and Oxlade both start.  I don't think Gini's been quite as bad as bang average.  I think he's been playing a slightly different game and been sacrificed for Henderson to get a little bit more in the spotlight.

      Disagree about Wijnaldum.

      I think we’ll see Milner start tonight

      I'm baffled about Gini, he's sensational for the Dutch team scoring goals for fun but seems scared shitless of even having a shot for us, its damned peculiar. He along with our fullbacks need to work on their finishing, if they could all add that to their game we'd be absolutely unstoppable, well even more than we currently are ;-). For example imagine Robbo having the shooting confidence and ability of Chelsea's Alonso, what a fantastic extra attack vector that would be.

      Belongs straight in the knee-jerk thread, this. Did Alonso happen to score in a televised Sky game over the weekend by any chance?  ;)

      Our full backs didn't have their shooting boots on against Atletico but neither did our entire team. In terms of right backs, you'll be hard pressed to find one with a better shot than Trent

      Oh for goodness sake, why can't you accept that someone has a different opinion to you, does it really threaten you so much??

      Robbo and Trent are SUPERB full backs but in my opinion they are NOT the best at shooting and scoring goals, how on earth can you even try to argue that. All I'm saying is that its an area they could work on, much as defending is something that Marcos Alonso could and should work on.

      BTW I think I could probably easily find fullbacks with a better scoring percentage, shots to goals, than Trent, Marcos Alonso would certainly be one of them. Does that mean I'd prefer to have Alonso in the team, no its does not because overall Trent is the much better fullback but there is always room for improvement.

      I think he will go with Fab Gini and Ox in midfield . I still find it weird that we are picking holes in players given our record they are playing for the team not for themselves which is why we are so far ahead in the league. Just get this done 1-0 or 10-0 its still 3 points closer to our main goal this season and for the last 30 seasons. I expect the lads to be bang at it tonight .

      Chill out, I've got no problem with your opinion I just disagree with it  :lmao:

      I'll agree that Robbo maybe isn't up there when it comes to shooting but Trent has got a great shot on him. There's a reason why he regularly gets the nod to take free kicks over two current golden boot holders. I'll challenge you to name a right back in the league with a better shot than him

      But more to the point our full backs rarely find themselves in positions where they need to take a shot anyway, last week was a rare instance where they were forced to take pot-shots from distance due to Atletico defending so deep but 95% of the time that doesn't happen

      With Fabinho being out I'd say that Gini has been covering more of a breaking up play role - and been allowing Henderson to do a bit more attacking.  No surprise therefore that Jordan has been in the right areas a couple of times to add a few goals.  Couple that with Oxlade-Chamberlain getting more of a game - one of the midfielders has to do some of the ugly stuff.

      I would have said with Fabinho returning we may have seen a more attack minded Wijnaldum, but now Henderson's out as well so that may have to go on hold.

      I don't think he's been playing horribly - I just think he's been doing a job that isn't particularly glamorous.

      OK fair enough, better shot taking right backs in our league, you may have a point there, perhaps Kyle Walker although he's more of bursting run then neat cross type of player, by God that lad is rapid though. Thinking about I think my gripe is more aimed at Robbo who almost always looks to pass the ball instead of shooting and more often that not if he does take a shot its a bit sh*t, he is however very good at crossing the ball and all other aspects of being a fullback, but if he could just add more shots and goals to his game he'd be sensational.

      Fair point, but its almost like Klopp is shackling him a bit, Gini is a wonderful attacking midfielder when he is allowed to be as well as being a wonderful all round midfielder, I just wish we could see more of the Gini form the Barca game more often. :-)
