So I was watching a video of the first day where everybody is back in training. Thought we might talk about what to expect football-wise from these final matches. We're going to win the title of course, but what will it look like on the pitch? Let's discuss.
I expect with a crowded fixture list, we will be seeing a lot of rotation, with at least 22 players, and probably more, seeing action.
There's an overhead shot in that video as the players are singing Happy Birthday to StevenGerrard, and I count 29 players gathered. As far as I can tell they are:
GK: Alisson, Adrian, Lonergan, Kelleher
D: Lovren, Gomez, Virgil, Matip, Trent, Robbo, Neco, Larouci, Van Den Berg, Hoever
M: Hendo, Gini, Ox, Milner, Keita, Fabinho, Ox, Lallana
F: Firmino, Mane, Salah, Origi, Minamino, Jones, Elliott
(actually Virgil is not in the shot - training separately perhaps?)
I haven't seen Nathanael Clyne in any of the training pics or videos so far. I take it he won't be returning??
There is one other player, a kid staning among the kids, standing behind Neco and between Harvey and Andrea K. Any idea who that is?
