Another day, another match for the attacking champions. Former manager Roy Hodgson takes his turn at trying to outdo Jürgen Klopp in football. No question which team has more quality, but this one does have "letdown" written all over it following the fine performance by our side against Spurs on Wednesday. There's also the ongoing issue with wear and tear on our playing staff.
Training today of course did not include those who played Wednesday, but the photos from the session make me think we could be seeing quite a few changes for a match that kicks off about 60 hours after the previous one ended.
I expect Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita will be hoping to make a return to first team action this Saturday. Joel Matip also took part in today's training, so we'll see.
