    Joe Gomez

    Tonight being one of the occasions where that extra responsibility seemed to spur him on. He's been arguably better than Vvd since he came back in at CB, long may his success continue!

    Seldom has the sentence "Liverpool are magic, Everton are tragic" seemed more apt! Get in you beautiful young reds!!!!!

    Williams looks a bit like Mcateer when he turns with the ball and passes/crosses/shoots.

    It'll be a bit like Villa with us controlling the play and them being more direct (and probably more powerful). Had robbo, vvd and allison played I would have really fancied us. Fear Milner and phillips will be exploited though. Should be goals in this one, let's hope the reds do us proud!

    I'd go with; --------------------Allison------------------ Williams---Phillips---Hoever--------Larouci -------------Milner----------Lallana--------------- --------------------Minamino---------------------- Elliott----------------Origi-----------------Jones---- I think we'd put up a decent fight with this team, I don't want anyone of the back 4 near this one, our cover is a bit better further up the field is much better, and all of Lallana/Milner/Origi/Minamino would appreciate the game time. I'd prefer that the other potential starters get a rest. As others have said, the FA cup is normally a bit down on our priority list, losing to Everton would definitely hurt, but losing one of Gomez/VVd, Robertson/Trent for an extended period would hurt a lot more. They must be on the brink of exhaustion as well as susceptible to injuries after the grueling schedule they've been through. Torn on this, as I would like us to keep our record vs the blues, but I think bigger picture we'll struggle with the amount of games later on anyway. Hopefully the players that get the chance put in a great shift and do us proud.

    The Day Everything Changed

    Van Dijk makes Lovren look good, Matip great and Joe Gomez fantastic. Lovren /Vvd is a very good partnership, the other two are virtually impenetrable.
  7. Surely we'll go full strength here once we've entered this competition? Think we rested plenty of players in the games leading up to this, so we could go with our best side both here and in the Leicester game? I expect; ---------------Allison------------ Trent--Gomez-VVD--Robertson -Henderson-- Wijnaldum --Keita Salah ------Firmino ----Mane Keita, Ox and Milner fighting it out for the last midfield spot. Henderson never plays left CM, and with Wijnaldum needed at DM, I think Keita is the best fit. If Wijnaldum isn't fully fit, perhaps Henderson drops to DM and Ox comes in on the right? Would leave Trent a bit too exposed for my liking... Van Dijk will play no matter how sick he is tomorrow... Doubt Jurgen will want to see the Hendo/Gomez double act again...
  8. If I'm completely honest, I think we could have won both this, and the CWC. Sending the players that went out to Villa together with the best 14-15 players to Quatar would have covered both bases so to speak. With a different fixture list I think we would have as well. It seems Klopp is mighty annoyed with the two-legged semi-final of the League Cup, though, and in the end he has just decided to fuck it off. I'm a bit sad about this, as I think it would have meant more game-time for players that desperately need it, and looking at the game yesterday I think we missed a trick. If we'd have kept Adrian, Milner, Lallana, C. Jones, N.Williams and Origi for this one I'm pretty sure we'd got away with the win. We then could have given more gametime to Jones, Williams, Hoever, Origi, Minamino, Chirivella and Elliott in the New Year. Anyway, I agree with the decision to prioritise the CWC over the LC, but I'm a bit disappointed for the young lads. The Arsenal game earlier this season was probably the funniest (least stressful) win we had all season as well! Would have liked a couple more of those occasions.

    Salzburg (A) Champions League - 17:55

    Ha-ha, Alfie Haaland just said that his son would try to avoid Vvd (Norwegian TV tried to make it a battle of giants here), and suggested his son would have more luck against the other CB...

    Salzburg (A) Champions League - 17:55

    Someone likened him to Ibrahimovic the other day. As a player, that's not a good comparison at all. In terms of determination, mindset, and not giving a fuck about what they say in interviews thry are pretty close. I'd say Zlatan has a bit more mystique and dare I say intelligence about him than Haaland though. I don't think Haaland will rip it up against the best teams in the league for a while yet, but he'l bully plenty of dedenders with his strength, size and pace. As a player I think a less lazy Lukaku is more fitting than Zlatan. Haaland's a bit more composed and self-confident than you'd expect for a boy/man his age though. Hopefully Vvd follows him around, would much prefer Gomez played than Lovren today.

    Salzburg (A) Champions League - 17:55

    Have to say I'll be more confident with Gomez at CB than Lovren for this one. They have bags of pace up front, can easily see Lovren being targeted. Hopefully Gini and Henderson will be able to stem the tide. We'll score as well, but don't think it'll be an easy ride.

    Joe Gomez

    Agree with this. Lovren has done well, but the upside of playing Gomez is immense. We can keep the higher line with better success, and he's better equipped to deal with the quicker attackers. His positioning at cb is much better than at rb, and I think he'll thrive with the extra responsibility as well.
  13. Firmino needs a good game for us to win this one I think. Vital that he's able to bring Ox and Salah into the game. Hopefully Keita contributes something for us on the attacking side too. Come on you reds!!!

    FIFA Club World Cup 2019

    Yeah, apparently the rule has been interpreted to that the club (and most of the squad) needs to be there, not the entire group of players listed. That allows the 4 players (possibly someone like Lallana and Keita?) to play the LC before travelling.

    FIFA Club World Cup 2019

    According to Standard Sports all of Brewster, Jones, Elliott and Williams will play at Villa before being flown out to meet up with the rest of the squad.
