Tenacity. Work-rate. Audacity. Talent. Effectiveness. Might.

 

I don't ask for much.

 

Hopefully most of our players get a breather prior to this game. We have a very intense schedule coming up (which includes two games on two different continents on consecutive days!) so I hope Klopp and co have been having a word with the various national coaches about the risk of burnout. If our players get fucked over now, they will not be available to their national teams when they really need them. At the very least, none of them should be selected for friendly matches.

 

As for Palace, just do what we've been doing to them at Selhurst for the past few years. If we play with any sort of intensity, Palace will struggle to keep up. The longer the game goes on, the more they will simply camp out in their own box regardless of the scoreline. Their manager's ethos is to either hold on to what they have, or damage limitation.

No Salah, then. So: Origi on left with Mane on right; or something more unusual (involving Oxlade-C., say?)?

4-4-1-1

 

Alisson; Lovren, Van Dijk, Trent, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane; Firmino; Origi

@viRdjil getting all creative with D-Lov at right back and Trent at centre half.

I hope Zaha has one of his "I don't know why I rate him so highly" days and not one of his "wow he's unplayable" days. Thankfully the later are getting rarer all the time. 

He’s just saving those for us.

If Mo is out, I'd give Ox a run at wide forward in a 433. Previously he hasn't been great there but he seems to have developed an eye for goal this season.

One of those just win it games. After an international break, away from home, energetic opposition, noisy crowd, motivated management team. 

Exactly unlike when they play anyone challenging us and roll over like brasses in brussels.

Dunno mate it really didn't work out the last time. I'm just not sure its his position.

Does Zaha only ever play well against us?. I never hear of him having a great game against Spurs, Arsenal, City etc. He doesnt even play well against Everton.

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
