Thiago is balling the shite out of this game
If Thiago starts we win. That simple really.
Is that Billy Koumetio? That boy is built like a man.
He should be fine fitness-wise, but he will need a bit of time to learn our defensive organization. A bit risky to start learning that against Arsenal. I wouldn’t be totally surprised if he starts, but I think more likely he won’t.
I think because he is so intelligent, such a student of the game and wanted this particular move so badly* the bedding in period will be almost non existent.
* meaning he's watched us play a lot before and had the month after the final to learn it even better
I agree and I am not saying he will need 6 months to get up to speed - just a few games to work out some movements and defensive responsibilities.
Something that it took someone to ask me for me to realise, have Liverpool ever signed as high a profile player as Thiago before? Just won the CL with Bayern. Won it before with Barca. Won the league in eleven of the twelve seasons he's been playing footy. Nope. Not even close.
Yeah but he still needs time to settle in.
Bossing the entire Chelsea midfield in your first game don’t count.
It's taken alot of Premiership based players a while to get to grips with how we play, so it's not unreasonable to think that despite him being obviously brilliant, there might be some transition. 45 minutes against one side was great, he still has to learn the system, the intensity and the league.
He gave a peno away the useless bell
He’s got to start. Starter for Bayern, starter for Spain yet some think it’s too soon for him to start for us?
He’ll start and he’ll pass Arsenal apart.
Just wait until next summer.
He's obviously great and should settle quickly but would Klopp have subbed him on at half time if Chelsea weren't already down to 10 men?
What sort of question is that ? A million times Yes !
Thiago and Allison both doubts:
Thiago Alcântara and Alisson are both doubts for Liverpool’s game with Arsenal tomorrow after being unable to train fully with the rest of Jürgen Klopp’s squad.
The Liverpool manager is now awaiting an update on their availability, with the back-up goalkeeper Adrián on standby to deputise should Alisson miss out.
Alisson & Thiago both doubts with injury apparently
Alisson and Thiago both doubtful. Both missed training today.
Allison must play
Welp. That's us losing the game then
