      and how is Alisson not fit? Did he develop Lallana-itis starting last season?

      Having lost to these the last twice (I know the CS was a draw!), keen to stuff if up them and think we will if we eliminate silly defensive errors and take some of our chances.

      In those 2 defeats some of the key stats combined are: -

      We've had an average of 65% possession

      We've had a total of 39 shots to their 11

      We've had 12 shots on target to their 4

      And 18 corners to their 5

      How have we lost both those games??!!  Oh yeah, we need to eliminate the silly defensive mistakes and take some of our chances, being more clinical, up front.

      The more I think about this game, the more confident I become.

      COYR - Win by a 2 goal margin to leapfrog that lot across the park!!

      If Gomez is indeed fit I still wouldn’t play him, I’d ease him in gentler on Thursday rather than the more important of the two games tonight, this allows him a couple extra days to build his strength both mentally & physically, good news that Ali will play and no mention of Thiago missing the game either,

      Thinking about who to play alongside Thiago I think we’ll see Gini & Naby, Hendo & Milner are both non- starters, so our next best experienced two are Gini & Naby, with excellent back up from Jota, Jones, Shaq, or even Minamino, the only other concern/ dilemma is what system we use, will it be Jürgen’s tried & trusted 4-3-3, or the suck it N see 4-2-3-1, I think the latter with Thiago marauding forward probing/ creating for openings in Arteta’s bus parking antics,


      Absolutely pivotal we get the win tonight (we will) after Citeh’s debacle V Foxes, we would have a Six point gap (already) over them, last season after 10, we had a 8 point gap which they never recovered , long long way to go of course but no scientists are required to work out the likely parameters if the current trend continues,


      I’d love us to absolutely batter Arse, they will see a completely different animal tonight, a hungrier, fitter, more determined than ever animal with added teeth in Thiago, Salah looks as sharp as ever, likewise Mane, I have a slight worry about Bobby but confidence is massive and I hope that’s all he’s short of,



      3-1 Champions

      Nervous about this one, Arsenal are just one of those teams I hate losing too more than others, feels like you’re getting nutmegged by a 5 year old when these get one over on you.

      A much different arsenal than the one that came to anfield last year, the year before and the year before that. Need to be on our toes! I can see them target Trent with Aubameyang down that side so the midfielders need to be wary of it. That said if we play our game everything should fall into place!
       3-1 Liverpool Salah hattrick is my guess

      I've been really impressed with the improvements Arteta has made at Arsenal in such a short period of time, particularly given their squad/team is lacking in quality in some areas (particularly the back 4). He has got them very compact defensively and they are organised and know their jobs, if you've got that and then you have players like Aubameyang and Lacazette you will be dangerous. They remind me of LFC when Houllier was just starting to get to grips with things in his first full season or two in sole charge.

      Clearly we have been dominant in terms of possession in the last couple of games with them but they are very comfortable without the ball and dangerous when they win it back and break quickly. We need to be really careful in transition, look after the ball and perhaps not overcommit.

      I'd be inclined to play Gomez if he is fit and then play Fabinho and Thiago in midfield with Gini. We look vulnerable defensively with Keita in the side and Thiago is used to playing in a 2 from his time at Bayern so it would also influence it for me.

      I fancy us to win but it will be a tough game, i'm going for 2-1 Reds. important we don't go behind.

      When Aubamayang breaks, Just keep on his right as his left is just for standing on.
      Don’t let him turn inside on to his right !
