Salah - he's great on either wing.
So who should be rested in this game? Sadio, Trent, Robbo? Longer rests for Mo and Bobby?
I think Trent and Sadio could be due a rest, but Lovren might also need it.
The thing with Sadio, as Klopp has said, is that he could probably play every game but we still need to manage his fitness.
Big game on Tuesday as well.
I wonder if Sadio missing those chances in the 2nd half is a sign of mental fatigue. If was not like him and up until then he's been unplayable all game.
True but, I sense a difference this time, they lost a bit of that shine to them that made them look invulnerable. Leicester might beat them for me, Vardy and co will be hot potatoes for Citys defence.
Nah I think he got a little arrogant and carried away by the scoreline which he does have in his game, if we were 4-2 down both those chances would have been in the net, both chances he had time to execute them if he had just made the right judgment. He went for the early shot instead of coming a bit closer before shooting for the first miss and the second miss was pure arrogance as he seemed like he wanted to walk the ball into the net but instead got pushed off the ball. I think the scoreline got to him and he wanted to score in style both times, I don't mind this type of arrogance when we are 4-2 up, thankfully he's not always like that.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I really don't think Sadio has an ounce of arrogance in him.
As you were
Maybe arrogance was the wrong word, I admit. But we've all been there, even in the park with your mates, when you know you could just score a simple unremarkable goal but instead you take too many touches (or not enough) because you got lost in a moment where you wanted that goal to look good. To me that's what happened to Sadio with those missed chances, he got caught up in the moment of how the goal would look rather than just putting it in the net, this mind state is obviously more likely when you are winning by 2 or more goals. Sadio The Artist.
I've given up hoping that City lose the games where they probably should have trouble - Chelsea, Leicester, etc... They almost always win them. It's the teams that they should crucify that hurt them.
So, maybe the scum take something off them tomorrow then..?
Rest Sadio and have him firing at his old home ground midweek
Looked to me like he had too much time and started to think, instead of letting his feet do the thinking and going on instincts.
It doesn't matter that John Major doesn't support Boris, Tommy Robinson does and that's the important thing
The thing about players needed a rest and all that jazz... That's just down to all the trillions of bits of data they collect.. distance run, HR variability, sprints made, muscle strength, etc etc
Like it's cool saying yh Sadio needs a rest but actually he might just be a machine and keep playing full tilt till the end of the season.
I think there are prob times when the manager things well we just need you to get through the next 90 but other times I'm sure the fitness team, docs physios stat teams etc play a huge part in saying player X needs a few days off.
The positive about the world club cup is klopp is clearly a fan of taking the players abroad and hopefully the Qatar trip will provide some much needed winter sun training while playing a few games out there.
That's probably why he didn't consider splitting the squads for WCC and CC "for one second." Yes, he could have left Elliott and co. to play against Villa, but probably he thinks a mid-season warm-weather training camp with the first team bookended by a couple of competitive games will be far more beneficial for their development. Ideally one or two of them will make a step to becoming first-team options there and then.
Won 4-Drawn 4-Lost 7...we should twat them,I'm going for a convincing 3-0 win
Liverpool: Alisson, Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Firmino.
Subs: Adrian, Mane, Shaqiri, Origi, Jones, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.
Mane and Trent are rested.
I don't like Chamberlain in the front 3. But Elliot on the bench i do like
