West Ham 29-1-20 PL (A)

This is our game in hand and must win one to increase the points gap to 19. With a trip to London and we should have full team with plenty of choices to choose. I don't know what's the latest news with Sadio Mane's injury and recovering process but Divock Origi should be able to take his place instead. The first 11 should be:


Alisson

TAA - Gomez - VVD - Robertson

Henderson - Fabinho - Wijnaldum

Salah - Firmino - Origi

Please don't make a mess of this game and best of luck Redmen.

  • Back in December before the World Club Championship I looked at the fixtures and thought that if we had a 10 point lead by the end of January we would go on to win the PL. Well, its the end of January and our lead is almost double that 10 points, so it is surely a matter of when not if. The performance against West Ham was good in parts and sloppy in parts. Lots of players are getting praise but I thought Firmino was brilliant. When he is in his current form he is a joy to watch. Credit also to Alisson who had little to do for long periods but then made three brilliant saves. West Ham were poor but they had so many men behind the ball they were difficult to break down. Lets hope for a more entertaining game on Saturday when Saints are the visitors.
  • The starting 11: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Firmino, Salah, Origi.
  • I have a different suggestion. Play Keita in midfield and Ox front left. I know its not his best position but he can do as good a job there as Minamino or Origi and will be fresher than them. The team would thus be the same as that which played at Bournemouth other than Gomez starting instead of Lovren (who was injured early in that game and replaced by Gomez). Just because West Ham are having a poor season does not make this an easy game but hopefully we will get the 3 points and open up a 19 point lead over City.
  • Seems Mane is out for at least another 2 weeks. I'd like to see Minamino get his place, we know what Origi is all about, not a good starter but much better from the bench, give Minamino the start and if needed Origi from the bench on the hour or so mark. I would also have the Ox start and drop Fabinho to the bench, move Hendo over, very strong bench at that.

Looks like Liverpool FC has dominated the BBC Awards for 2019-20 Season and it seems just about right with the winners and PL XI team but Bruno Fernandes was a very strange addition into that team and they were other possible selected chosen nominee…
