S**thampton (A) Premier League (17/8/19)

Recommended Posts

Milner had a knee issue last night, had ice on it after coming off. Keita is injured isn't he? 

I think it'll be Adrian with same back 4 as what started the season, Trent Gomez Virgil Robbo,

Gini Fab Hen will have to go again, unless the ox comes in for Gini with him or Hen at the 6, and the 3 amigos up top.

Just grind out a win here. Can't be going behind first again. We've gone behind a lot last few weeks and we have to then work harder than we should to get it back.

Last year we didn't give up any chances the first 5 games, we'd clean sheets coming out our collective arses. We've been giving away chances far too easily lately so let's start from a solid base and grind a 2nil win out of this.

I thought Saints fans would be a bit more bullish after last night, but most of them still think they’ll lose. Just by less goals.

We won't keep a clean sheet without Moreno and will have trouble scoring now that Sturridge has left.

 

3-0 Saints. 

Lovren and Lallana will help with their three goals. 

 

But our front three will all score a hattrick each. We will win 3 - 28.

I think we’ll find a way to win.

 

If we do, this whole “7 trophies to compete for” shite I keep hearing about from the media will be 1 or 2 extra games in December.

 

Definitely not ideal, but somewhat different from 3 extra competitions.

Interesting "stat" is that we've faced 40 shots on goal in last 3 games. We only conceded 19 in our first 3 games last year.

I know stats can be taken out of context, but we've let over twice as many shots this season and that's a bit of a concern. 

Again, we have faced city and Chelsea this time rather than west ham, palace and Brighton like last season, but still, I'd rather we tried to get back to not giving up as many chances. There has been some conflicting reports on our high line this lately, and some say we've had a high line last year too, but something is obviously a miss over the last few weeks and I just hope it's early season teething problems.

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Adrian is a doubt to face Southampton on Saturday, further adding to the club's goalkeeper woes.

The Spanish keeper was the hero in the Super Cup final as he saved Tammy Abraham's penalty which saw Liverpool lift their first piece of silverware of the season.

However, the victory has been marred after a fan ran on to the pitch following the win who then ultimately ended up injuring the former West Ham keeper.

 

Klopp revealed on Friday that he may not feature at St Mary's this weekend as a result.

‘It would help him a lot if it would be 100 per cent clear he could play tomorrow,' Klopp said. 'When we were all together a supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys and slipped and kicked his ankle. 

'Yesterday it was swollen, today he says it was better but we have to see.’

Should Adrian not be fit enough to play, veteran keeper Andy Lonergan will step up to make his debut for the club with Alisson still out of action with a calf strain.

 

'Andy Lonergan has trained longer with us than Adrian,' Klopp continued. 'Adrian only came in the week before. Lonergan played until half-time in a friendly, pre-season game. (Sevilla). 

'Caoimhin Kelleher, which we all are completely excited about with potential and all that stuff, has not been in training for a while but is now in training, not 100 per cent training but nearly since a week and a half. 

'He has to be in training today, if we have to make a decision then we have to make a decision.

‘What can I say? There is no doubt about how much we love our fans but if they all could stop doing that. We played against City and someone was running on the pitch, Noriwch.

I'm already starting to hate him

I'm already in full swing loathing mode. Sturridge is gone but his legacy is strong

Keita out for this too. Not yet known when he'll return to training.

He’s been out for ages, hasn’t  he? Every time he’s nearly ready he gets injured again!

I wonder if Shaqiri will get a start today. There was something in the BBC gossip page about him getting restless due to lack of game time.

Yep -- that plus it will be interesting to see if Klopp tries to integrate Lovren back into the group.

He was never the strongest of mind and his confidence has to be shot after we were going to let him go for peanuts then they said, uh no.

Asked someone earlier if he’s going the game , fuck that he said £60 a ticket , outrageous, 

Thought aways were capped at £30.

 

Last season (maybe season before) their sponsors also subsidised tickets by £10 and they were only £20.
