Couldn't wait any longer so here we go, start of the new season and we kick off with a visit from the hammers. We've added some real quality during the summer (how good does Shaqiri look) and i think we're all very possitive about the coming campaigne.
For me the team is obvious but for one midfield possition as in does Hendo, Millner, Wini or Shaqiri start? imo it's between Wini and Shaqiri with Kieta and Fabinho being the other two. My preference would be Shaqiri who i think has been outstanding in pre-season, Wini has been excellent as well with his couple of goals but Shaqiri just has that extra bit of quality i feel. My team for our opening game would be,
Arnold Gomez VVD Robertson
Shaqiri Fabinho Kieta
Salah Firmino Mane
I put Gomez in instead of Lovren as Lovren is not back long from the WC final and hasn't trained too much so a good opportunity for Gomez to give Klopp something to think about for that position, you all know what i think of Lovren by now. It's a very attacking team but i want us to send out an early meesage with hopefully a really good comprehensive win here, best of luck RedMen.
