      Klopp won't change the system when we still have 5 senior midfielders available.

      United and Chelsea both losing gives us a massive opportunity to build a 3 point cushion going into the City game. The boys will be pumped for the game today, but it's going to be a tricky test. Brentford will have their moments but I reckon we'll grind it out by a goal.

      He won't I agree, but if some things change. He will have to.

      Not had chance to look at who’s been LB yet but in the 6 games Matip has played we have conceded 6 goals. All the other pairings outside of Matip has conceded 0.

      Probably nothing in it but it’s not filling me with confidence when he plays at the moment, especially when he was largely at fault for the 2 Milan goals.

      Like I said, not looked at the other positions, was just something I happened to notice.

      Hadn't Matip also played in a string of games with a clean sheet as well though?

      Still unbeaten in all Comps and a run of league form running into last season that translates to a huge points total.

      Could it be that this squad of players is going to make some people look a little silly come the end of the season?

      I wonder if you would have a different opinion about Jones if he wasn’t a Scouser 🤔

      If you don't rate Jones you don't understand football.

      It's really that simple.

      What do you not rate/like/see in Jones

      Being a scouser should not be a factor in either side of the discussion

      I rate Jones very highly 🤷‍♂️ He is the reason why imo we didn’t need to bring someone in to replace Gini - he will provide the same level of ball retention but adding creativity as well

      100% ? There is always a squad that a team can improve on

      But I’m happy with the squad we have and believe it’s good enough to win the league

      That he didn’t cost 50M.

      If we had a proper RB backup for Trent i’d be pretty damn close to being 100% happy with the squad. Taki and Origi aren’t “sexy” names as forwards but I also understand you’re not going to have big name players as 5th and 6th options so I’m happy with them in their depth roles.

      And I despise £7m players like 26 because they’re too cheap. 66 is worse - he didn’t even cost us any transfer fee.

      There are only two players I love - 1 and 4 as they’re £67m and £75m. Even then they were rubbish against Brentford. Waste of money.

      I can never be happy whether they’re bargains or if they’re marquee level players.

      How do you feel about Jones from a tactical perspective?

      He obviously has tonnes of skill on the ball, but imo he needs to become more positionally and tactically sound to get to the next level.

      While I respect what your saying, I disagree. You cant stifle a players progress by saying your brilluant at opening defences and creating but you cant play because your not back in your own box enough gettng your head on things.

      I think its a mentallity of these islands. I doubt France said years ago, not sure about Zidane hes not great at  tracking back or Barce saying Messi is amazing with the ball but without it he doesnt do enough to merit selection..

      Jones is very good at what hes good at, and will improve further, while needing to know other aspects of the game, not mastering them should not outweigh what he is good at

      I think the coaching staff were trying to implement this last season where he seemed to play within himself a little and was more tactically aware.

      I think we're seeing the benefit of that now alongside his natural flair, of which we don't want to stifle too much as it's what makes him such an exciting prospect.

      Definitely agree with this. Too much tactis can waste some players natural ability. Some managers and coaches forget its an entertainment business first. We the fans want to entertained. ;D

      So my question still stands, who replaces Jones when he's having a shocker like Sunday?

      Naby? The guy can't be trusted to play 45 mins without getting injured.
