      Still pinching myself that he plays for Liverpool

      Same. Almost every day.

      Was blabbing to my wife during the game that he's the best footballer in the world as she wasn't sure who he was, pays little attention to us.

      He isn't like but you know what I mean. Watching him with a football and he looks like he plays a different game to the rest.

      Much better news than predicted to be fair.

      Worth taking the risk considering last game of the season.

      Depends. You don't want to rupture an Achilles Tendon unless you don't want him available for next season.

      That would be the best case scenario for him and team. Gutted for him after a good run of games and form.

      Given his injury history and the amount of games he played over the month and half that it was a matter of time before he picked up another injury of some sort. To have it happen before the last game and the biggest game is a kick in the teeth.

      Hopefully next season we buy a new CM we manage his playing time throughout the season

      Lots of massage, heat, ice, ultrasound and i'm guessing a big fat injection on the morning of the game. It's encouraging that he hasn't yet been ruled out of the game. Fingers crossed because he will be a massive miss. Seems more likely that he would start if fit in anyway. Otherwise you risk bringing him on and then bringing him off again and burning two subs.

      If there is a tear then they wont be injecting anything, all that does is mask the pain, it doesn't prevent it from going from say a grade 1 tear to a grade 2 if he plays. If it's his achillies, as much as we could do with him, I doubt the club would take any risks because if it was to end up as a grade 3 then he could end up being out for 6+ months.

      if he had a tear I doubt he would have been walking around with his daughter on his back , we just have to hope he is ok he makes us stronger but whoever plays we will be strong and we will win

      Unfortunately, never know, remember Virgil walking around the pitch when he was assaulted by Pickford, didn't look too bad at all and then it turned out being season ending. I just find it strange how Klopp said he knows what the issue is but wasn't going to reveal what it was, what's that about? Maybe something he has been managing in recent games?

      I think Keita would be better for us against Madrid.

      I think we will be finding out. Personally I feel Thiago and Hendo can wrestle control of midfield from Modric and Kroos. The worry for me is getting passed off the pitch by those two. We need to dominate the ball I feel and be the team in the front foot.

      Certainly a massive game for Keita this. Chance to really stand up and prove the 55 million price tag was indicative of his talent. Give me Thiago all day though.

      Lets hope he performs a damn sight better than last time then becasue he ended up getting hooked at half time he was playing that badly.

      No. Thiago would. Not even a debate.

      We're not getting passed off the pitch. That didn't happen in 2018 and it sure as f**k aint happening now. We'll press these bas**rds off the park.

      Klopp, in today's presser said Thiago will train on his own this afternoon. It's looking good.

      Not heard anything official since Wednesday. Did they not train yesterday though? Not seen any pics from the session, do they usually do a private one this close?
