      Sorry folks, we're playing football again.

      Back at Anfield where hopefully some of the insipid displays will be less tolerated.

      Unfortunately we are playing an Arsenal team who have a full point per game better than us.

      Anything less than a win and we can no longer mathematically win the league.

      I’d take a point right now..

      Wonder if we risk Thiago for this or bench ? Either way will be a tough one but wouldn't be surprised if we turned them over

      Any chance of a sudden and dramatic revival at this point in the season seems as likely as Lallana decrying FSGs lack of investment on the pitch so I'll settle for us keeping it tight and showing some fight. As we are at home it is not totally out of the question that we could get a result.

      Our home form is vastly different


      Only lost to Leeds

      35 goals

      Done well at home but our two major scalps against City and United were when those teams played the occasion and not the game. Our other tough games at home have been less impressive - unbeaten against Chelsea, Brighton and Newcastle yes but didn't play well in any of those and should have been beat a couple of times. Will be interesting to see how Arsenal approach it, I suspect they will be a bit cautious and try and hit us on the break knowing that a draw isn't a disaster for them.

      I’m very very afraid that we are due  a smack down from the gunners. As we have smacked them around probably since that 2014 season. Heart says 2-2.

      Still think gunners win the league.

      Is there any chance of Trent being tried in midfield, I've heard whispers online probably BS sites, he could still get crosses in from the right of midfield? I don't think Klopp would do but it's worth a try in my non managerial experienced opinion.

      To hell with it..I'm starting Arthur...he can, allegedly, play box to box or playmaker type.

      Ali..Gomez..Konate..VVD. .Robbo....Hendo..Fabinho ..Arthur....Mo..Gakpo..N unez.

      Arthur is only 26. Barca paid big money for him as did Juve..so he must be able to actually kick a friggin' ball. But wouldn't be surprised to see Thiago pop up again.

      He'll have to be tried there at some point. May be the Boss will try it in the pre-season friendlies. Going live with it so to speak, at this critical juncture might not be the way forward.

      I don’t expect Klopp to go anywhere near TAA being part of a midfield three

      Might be a wingback or right of a midfield 4 if they go three at the back

      We should be expecting a defeat on form, even though we’ve been better at home.
      I still can’t prevent myself going for a 2-1 win 🤷‍♂️
      Hope my heart gets it right and my head fucks off 😊

      The defining week hasn’t gone so well has it?

      Can’t imagine our defence will be able to handle their attack and guile….

      All points to a defeat but who knows

      Arthur is a good player , was very good at Barce , he had a few niggles but was clearly unfit when he arrived and then that was a bad injury - shame as he could have given us an option when Thiago was out

      We might never know what he could do here. We paid nearly £5m loan fee I believe with an option to buy. Well we won't buy him and he might get a few end of season games. Klopp and his team must've seen something in him to bring him in.Tried everyone might as well give Arthur lad a shot.

      If he is fit then would have no issues seeing him play tomorrow

      Top 4 is still mathematically possible but in reality, it's gone. But getting 5th is very important as it secures a place in the Europa League.

      So that gives us two ways to get back into Champions League, either through the top 4 or Winning the Europa League. So winning is still vitally important.

      3-1

      If you'd said this time last season Arsenal would be top of the league by 5pts and we'd be languishing in 8th and out of all the competitions, you'd be hounded off the forum. How the f*ck has this parallel universe been allowed to happen? We don't need Arthur, we need time travellers!
