Mourinho already stating that we don’t have injuries. It’s only vvd that’s injure from our first team.
ive seen this mentioned a few times that most of our injuries are squad players and our first team isn’t really affected.
thing is, that may be true. But the point is that because squad players like Matip/Gomez, milner, Shaq, Thiago, ox, keita, Jota are injured, we either a) can’t rotate the team therefor risking injuries/tiredness to the first team.
or we rotate and end up playing kids which dramatically reduces the quality of the team and squad.
Lot of people don’t seem to put those things together and just say, well you’re only missing 1 first team player... those same people probably then say we klopp doesn’t rotate his team so if players get injured it’s his fault. Who is he meant to rotate with exactly?!
He's just paving the way for his usual negative approach.
I find the criticism somewhat over the top, yes I'm pissed off, yes I'm angry, but I'm also not a teenage boy anymore, prone to stamping my feet and shouting its not fair.
In the current situation I'm absolutely thrilled that the teams still battling away, still getting results.
I except that the injuries we've got, the fatigue and the sheer amount of games will have an impact, we can't press for 90 minutes, we can't go hell for leather, we won't control games like we can usually.
The youngsters have come in and done fantastic, considering the circumstances, we are joint top of the league, at times we still show we are the best in the league. All done with out our two cb are main dm and a front line that looks knackered.
I'm still a happy boy.
I agree credit should be given to the team for keeping us competitive. It is frustrating when players like Mane and Bobby, who are usually such live wires in the team, seem to not be playing as they usually do, but with the amount of games we have had and the fact they have played most of the 90 minutes plus in each game they are bound to be tired.
The amount of games played would not affect a keeper, but for outfield players it takes its toll.
I still think Spurs will murder us on the break if we stick with playing a high line.
Naby might be fit to start against Spurs, he will obviously then miss the next 3 games!
Catch 22 play the high line and risk being battered on the counter, drop deeper and concede are usual game plan.
Someone has mentioned before, but I think klopp will come up with something new.
but would he start over Curtis Jones is the question
Maybe not, but it is an improvement for the bench in case of injury/reshuffle of midfield. The way our luck is going with injury he may end up being the shortest CB in history!
It's simply not true though is it? If meaning just this upcoming game, we don't have a recognised CB! If he means in general then Alisson, Trent and Hendo are all automatic first choice players and missed games through injury. Pretty sure Thiago could ve counted in that too but he's not played enough to warrant it yet, Jota too.
He also compared our injury list to his at Spurs, which according to him includes two kids in the U16s, two in the U21s, a back up player no one has heard of and Lamela who is their only first team player out injured.
Its the biggest bullshit I've ever seen.
Yeh that made me laugh, couple injuries to his under 16s ffs
Same old **** from him it's nothing new
He must be worried then.
Hell do what he does with every team he brings to ours, shut up shop and hope for a goal on the break.
Yep the world and his dog knows what to expect from Spurs tomorrow, and what worries me is that our injury crisis leaves us with no obvious plan B if his tactics work.
First goal, if it does come, will be massive.
I know **** all but it wouldn't surprise me if he does what he did against city or something similar in terms of springing a surprise and playing with four up top to throw them off and grab an early goal or two before reverting back to a more normal formation, it nearly came off against city tbh
The record between the two at Anfield has been particularly one sided, with Tottenham winning only two of their 25 Premier League encounters on Merseyside. The last time that Spurs beat Liverpool at Anfield was in May 2011 when Harry Redknapp's side defeated Kenny Dalglish's Reds 2-0 thanks to goals from Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modr
One good omen for Mauricio Pochettino's men is that this result also saw Spurs leapfrog Liverpool in the table so perhaps history could repeat itself on Sunday. If Tottenham want to look to their previous Anfield win then they will need to go back rather further - almost 25 years, in fact, as their only Premier League win there prior to this came in August 1993.
Harry Kane was exactly four weeks old when Teddy Sheringham scored twice at Anfield as Ossie Ardiles's Tottenham came from behind to end Liverpool's perfect start to the season under Graeme Souness. Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough had scored the game's opening goal for a Reds side captained by Ian Rush.
Just seen the City and Chelsea results
Looks like our season is back on
Have to beat Spurs first.
