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…

Everton, 10-12-17 (H) PL.

This game speaks for itself really, biggest game of the season if your a scouser it been the city's big derby game. Great to see Lallana training today, i guess Klopp is easing him back in but can't see him starting here, on the bench maybe. We know Hendo will start as Klopp has stated it but who will he drop, wijnaldum or Can as Coutinho can't be dropped imo. We have to play our strongest team as much as we can and this is a game we must do this so for me Salah, Firmino and Mane all start.…

Spartak, 06-12-17, (H) CL.

Biggest game of our season so far imo. A draw could see us in the knockout stage but we're at home so it's all out for the win for me. Not much news on the injury front except for matip who's out until the new year. It'll be our strongest 11 for this one so Mane comes back in after a rest against brighton, team pretty much pick it's self i feel but then again this is Klopp we're talking about so who knows. Anyway, the team i think Klopp will pick might be,

Brighton, 02-12-17, (A) PL

One of those teams that we don't really know too much about as we haven't played them in many years but their doing very well for their first season in the prem Lge so their not to be taken lightly. Klopp has said he will be rotating so i expect a few changes for this game, onto the team.

Migs is having a bit of a rough patch at the minute, should Klopp change his mindset about only playing Karius in the CL?, maybe or should ward be given a chance, definitely imo. I'm pi**ed off now…

Stoke, 28-11-17, (A) PL.

Can't help but feel disappointed with the chelsea result considering we were 1-0 up with only 5 minutes to go, this season is very very frustrating so far. Now onto another one of our bogey teams but thankfully we seem to be doing well against them this season. Lallana will start his first game in what seems an age. Can't find any news on any new injuries so i guess we're at full strenght, The team i feel Klopp might pick is,

Chelsea, 25-11-17, (H) PL

Not a lot needs to be said about this game or our last. With all the other top 6 teams expected to win this weekend, on paper at least, this is a vital game for us in terms of keeping up our top 4 challenge and also a great indication of what direction we seem to be going in. This season so far we haven't a good record against the other top teams so this is a chance to put that right, onto the team.

Moreno simply has to be dropped, we can't have that idiot making those mistakes in a…

Sevilla, 21-11-17, CL, (A)

Excellent win against the saints with some cracking goals from Salah and Coutinho, really starting to feel good about this team now, certainly wouldn't have said that a month or two ago but they've really pulled their socks up and are starting to show some great form, happy days.

Now onto a vital CL game and a win here will see us qualify for the knockout stages with a game to spare so i reckon Klopp will go all out to win this one and play a very similar team to that against the…

Southampton, 18-11-17 (H) PL.

Seems like an age since our last Lge game so thankfully back to normal now and a vist from the saints. Great to read that Mane is fit and available as to is Lallana, we're pretty much at full strength so i expect some changes for this game which could mean Chamberlain back on the bench which would be unfair on him as he's starting to show some good form. Maybe Klopp won't start Mane and Lallana nor Hendo and in that case Chamberlain will start but i can't see that happening, a fully fit…

Westham, 04-11-17, (A) PL.

Back to League action now and our last game before the always annoying international break. A bit of shuffling for Klopp to do for the game as we're carrying a few injuries with Coutinho out and Wijnaldum a doubt. Mignolet will come back in and i suspect Gomez will fall back into the RB position. Milner has done very well in midfield and may start due to Wijnaldum carrying a knock to his ankle, Hendo will come back in too even though he played most of the game CL game on wednesday night. I…

Maribor, 01-11-17, (H)

Back to the CL with what should be a comfortable night for the Reds. I almost forgot the first leg was away such was the result so at Anfield we really should be putting this team to the sword. Their coming of the back of a couple of wins in their lge so they may well put up a better fist of things than they did in the first leg but even so a win all day long for us is fully expected.

Onto the team. Same old chestnut as in how many changes will Klopp make, i think he should make a few…

Huddersfield, 28-10-17, (H)

This actually feels like our biggest game of the season so far, the anticipation is killing me as in the team Klopp puts out and the result. How many changes will he make and will he change the system. How will the team respond after the spurs game, how will the fans react if we don't get the desired result, like i said, it's a massive game for various reasons.

Onto the team, i think most of any changes will obviously be at the back, i'd take Migs out and one or two others but can't…

Spurs, 22-10-17, (A)

Back to the League now after our goal fest on wednesday night. Tougher opposition this time around though against an inform spurs who've had a really strong start to the season. We could almost call this a home game, well, we have been to wembley once or twice down the years :).

Can't see too many changes as Klopp only made 3 for the CL game so Migs will come back in as will Gomez i feel for Arnold. I think Milner has thrown a spanner in the works with his performance on wednesday…

Maribor, 17-10-17, CL, (A)

Back to CL football now and a long trip to Slovenia. Maribor are the minnows of the group and we would therefor be expected to earn all 6 points against them but this is LFC and we don't do things the easy way. I think Sturridge or Solanke will get a start here as will Chamberlain and dare i say Robertson, Arnold may get a start at RB, let's drop kick Lovren out of anfield and give that spot to Gomez and unfortunately i can see Klavan coming in in place of Matip, so the team for the game…

United (H) PL 14/10/17

What a game to start the new site with! I'm not gonna go too much into things here as I'm trying to get this site live asap. Mane out for 6 weeks though :-(

On form it doesn't look good for Liverpool but we all know it's games like this we turn up, fingers crossed I'm right, Anfield will be bouncing that's for sure!

3-1 win against Southampton
2-1 win against Liverpool
3-0 win against Wolves (Wolves down to 10 men)
3-0 win against Huddersfield

When you take away the thrashings again…"
