Southampton, 11-02-18 (A) PL

A potential bannana skin this one and for varius reasons, 1) the obvious, they'd love to get one over on us because we continue to poach their best players, VVD is in for dogs abuse here so lets hope he can handle it. 2) the pressure is on us now seen that spurs beat arsenal, the race for the top 4 positions is really hotting up now, can we handle the run in???

Gomez is ruled out through injury but that seems to be the only new injury concern. My back four would be Arnold, Lovren, VVD…

Spurs 4/2/2018 (H) PL

I didn't see a match blog so thought I'd give it a go.  We face an exciting encounter with Spurs.  This is a perfect revenge opportunity for that thrashing we got at Wembly earlier this season and also we can extend our lead over them.  This is a must not lose game for me, because they could go a point ahead, but if we win, we go 4 ahead which is incentive for us to go for the win instead of a pragmatic approach.  If I'm being honest, I'm feeling apprehensive before this game because of our…

Huddersfield, 30-01-18 (A) PL

Lets not mention our last two games and get straight onto this one. Needless to say, i know it's a cliche but this is a must win game. Looks like we've no new injury concerns so a full strenght team to put out. Expect Gomez and Robertson to come back in, Hendo done well when he came on against the baggies so i expect him to start, i would have Milner in my starting 11 as Can and Wijnaldum were and are awful, Milner simply couldn't be any worse, my midfield would be Chamberlain, Milner and…

WEST BROM 27-1-18 (H) FAC

As no one wlse has started this game's blog and it's tomorrow I thought I would get it rollling.  The importance of this game has increased since the poor defeat at Swansea.  Its vital that we don't go into a slump and that we can look back on Sansea as a one off bad night.  It's also our best chance of silverware this season so even though a few changes are expected a strong team is important.  West Brom may be in the relegation zone but like the Swans thay have improved recently and they…

Swansea

We play Swansea on Monday.  They're right in the thick of a relegation battle and normally we'd struggle to break teams like this down but we are coming on the back of a huge win against City.  Following up with 3 points is an absolute must.  We've got some players coming back from injury - Hendo, Moreno and Sturridge.  This is the lineup I would go with:

 

                                              Karius

               Gomez           Matip            VvD         …

City, 14-01-18 (H) PL

Oh how we owe city one big time and also a great chance to show there is life after Coutinho. All top 6 teams have tough games this weekend so a draw here may not be a bad result even though we are at home. I'm reading Salah is back training this week so i'll put him in my team up front with Firmino and Mane. Chamberlain has been playing well lately, really starting to show his quality, i'll put him in midfield alongside Can and Lallana. A back 4 of Arnold, Gomez, VVD and Robertson will most…

Everton, 06-01-18 (H) FA Cup

After a very nice win against Burnley how's about this for a break from Lge action. These are the games the city comes alive for, it'll be blue and red everywhere, i've yet to experience a derby game but one day i will, anyway, onto the team.

I can't find any updates on the fitness of Coutinho and Salah so if any of you can please let us know, i'll put them in my team anyway. I think the back 4 should be the same as against burnley, although i think Gomez will partner VVD in the future…

Burnley, 01-01-18 (A) PL

Apologies for missing the Leicester game folks, needless to say delighted with the result as leicester are a tough team to beat so an excellent result today. Up next another team that has caused us problems in the past but confidence is high and i expect another win here, onto the team.

Trying to 2nd guess Klopps team is very tough with so much rotation but lets give it a try. I think Arnold will come back in and Klavan for Matip who was dire today, Robertson has to keep his place so…

Swansea, 26-12-17 (H) PL

Our yo yo season continues with another good lead conceded at the emirates after a great performance against bournemouth. Fully expect us to win this game comfortably and put another nail into swansea's coffin. i suspect a few players might get a rest here as the swans look doomed this season so i expect a few changes, onto the team.

I'd like to see Karius get another Lge start, Migs has reverted back to his awful ways, was he ever any other way really. Arnold should come in at RB and…

Arsenal, 22-12-17 (A) PL

Good result and really good performance against bournemouth but now we have a good test against a top side to see how we're really doing so far this season. We spanked the gunners on the opening day but i think we caught them cold that day, this game will be a different ball game (pun intended). Onto the team.

Great to see Lallana get some game time against bournemouth and might he get a start here, doubtful. i think chamberlain should start, as he was excellent last time out,…

Bournemouth, 17-12-17 (A) PL

Another disappointing result against the baggies, we're starting to have too many of these and it's a slight worry, we're getting chances to catch up on those ahead of us but not taking them. Bournemouth are another team we should be beating if we're to fight for a top 4 finish but we're slipping up recently so here's hoping we get back to winning ways here.

Onto the team, it looks like Lallana will make the bench at least from what i'm reading which is great news, he may even start.…

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…

Surely if Kieta is out then the Ox gets a start here, we also have Wijnaldum in the wings, really good options for midfield and of course lets not forget Millie."
