Westbrom, 13-12-17 (H) PL

Disappointing result against everton but a chance here to get back to winning ways. Think we'll see a more familiar lineup here albeit with the exception of Robertson keeping his place due to moreno's absence. Firmino and Coutinho to start along with Wijnaldum. Hendo didn't do well against everton and he seems to be struggling right now so i would drop him and have a midfield of Can, wijnaldum and Coutinho, Gomez to keep his place at RB although i would like to see him back at CB and start Milner at RB, take either Klavan or my favourite player Lovren out, the team might look like this, 

                                                                                    Migs

                                                            Gomez    Klavan   Lovren   Robertson

                                                                Wijnaldum   Can    Coutinho

                                                                 Salah      Firmino    Mane

Robertson didn't pull up any tree's in the derby but let's put that down to lack of game time, maybe we'll see an improved performance here. He really needs to take his chance now while Moreno is out and give Klopp something to think about, otherwise we'll have that donkey coming straight back in alongside his partner in crime Lovren, best of luck RedMen.

  • Migs out for Karius is a real surprise. Can't figure that one out
    • karius is used in europe , and as we dont have a european fixture until february i imagine klopp will give him the odd game to keep him involved,
  • Arnold gets a start tonight, delighted for him, Migs dropped in favour of karius, that's a pleasant surprise, hopefully no clangers from karius, expect a comfortable win tonight.
  • Again the line-up is difficult to call. West Brom like the long ball and are good on set pieces so maybe Gomez should start ahead of Trent A-A. Wijnaldum and Can were rested on Sunday so will almost certainly start as will Coutinho and Firmino. Salah had a slight hamstring problem on Sunday so maybe he will be held in reserve on the bench. Whatever the line-up we should have too much for the Baggies but we desperately need to get back to winning ways fast after the dropped points on Sunday.
    • For sure, we need to jump straight back above Burnley, no messing about here. We don't play bournemouth til sunday so maybe give the players a day off tomorrow, either way, our best available 11 tonight should start.
  • I don't care who plays or how we play as long as we win, seeing Burnley ahead of us in the Champions League places is making me feel decidedly unwell.
    • It looks depressing alright but fairplay to them, their having a great season so far but chances are they'll fall back of course.
  • Lovren is not my favourite player, will be interesting to see TAA at RB and Gomez at CB

"This is the team the Gaffer is putting out today: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Salah, Shaqiri, Mané, Firmino. It should be interesting for Shaqiri since this is his first start of the season."

"Same front three (quite predictable), one change in midfield - Shaqiri for Milner (understandable) - and Matip for Gomez in defence (a change I didn't see coming)."

"I didn't see the game but I kept in touch with the live feed and it looked like a great game with all the text. Can't wait for the next CL game against Napoli."

"It's not always easy to tell who or what is moving in a specific direction, or with how much force, in a static image so I wouldn't rule out the possibility he was trying to push/hit/hold back Firmino but on the specific accusation that he meant to…"

"I’m not so sure it was accidental seeing that he swung his left arm across his body to make contact as his right arm already had a go to block Firmino and he couldn’t do much more with it at that moment. Why the face anyway?"

"In previous seasons this would be exactly the kind of game we'd lose - we'd beat all the big boys then go soft on a lesser team. I think Klopp will be livid if we do that this time as he's tried to make us more consistent. Because of that I'd expect…"

The games are coming thick and fast now with the latest being a visit from the saints. Great win over PSG the other night, delighted we got one over on that idiot neymar but i'm sure they'll be looking for revenge in the home tie. Anyway, on to this…

"I think it was genuinely accidental but after seeing these pictures it makes it seem more remarkable that Firmino went on to score the winning goal against PSG just days later.

"I caught the end tail of the game about 10 minutes remaining because it was an early game and I was in the US. I was not getting up at 7 AM time after a night before with beer :D I was delighted that we took the three points away from Wembley."

"I expect Salah is feeling a bit frustrated at the moment, given his form, but the TV footage was a bit misleading. His initial reaction to Firmino's goal was to throw his hands in the air, something that was difficult to see because of Klopp's runni…"

"That was a proper European game. When PSG equalised I doubted we'd even get a draw, to be honest. We deserved at least a draw though, our midfield was fantastic throughout - as were our fullbacks - and we limited PSG to relatively few chances. Sturr…"

"Excellent 1st half, i want to see Keita and Firmino on, Studge and Hendo to make way and Shaqiri to get at least the last 20."
