    Two Noble prise winners right there who pointed out the only obvious sollution. As Klopp pointed out "It is a completely normal decision"

    Normally the more adventurous a player is with his passing the lower his passing accuracy is. Having a forward with a high passing accuracy can mean he is too cautious rather than being very good with the ball. Messi, as a good benchmark ;), has an 81% pass accuracy this season. Our team 's anomaly is that our RB is also our most adventurous passer. TAA is given leeway to try the difficult passes that are harder to complete, manifesting in a 74% pass accuracy. Am I correct in feeling that Hendo (lacks some technique tho) and Trent's % has taken a hit due to all the crosses while simultaneously feeling that Salah just is that few percentage points more sloppy than Bobby and Mane? Lastly Virgil, he has the most passes in the premier league and with a high % but is often pinging difficult probing passes. He has time on the ball because he's rarely ever closed down because he can just flick the ball and brush past most players with ease. Its a joy to watch.

    Keita's numbers are excellent (considering he doesn't just play safe passes). Origi needs to do better.

    The negative propoganda machine had me doubting you. Today's game showed how right you were. He swags that ball where ever he wants.

    I forgive his lack of technical ability as long as he continues to score goals.

    Curtis Jones now has the bragging rights of being the top of the passing table with a perfect 100% accuracy :) Origi still needs to do better.

    What a hit son.. what a hit.

    See it from other angles, no keeper saves that.

    Only 2 CBs. Presumably Hoever comes out after the Villa game, now it has been established that is allowed (I think)

    I think Klopp said in his press match conference that he would travel with the squad, even though he didn't know the state of the injury at that time. So not sure this means he is definitely fit.

    Though if it was bad, you would expect him to stay behind to get treatment
