    This is going to be a monumentally bad gameweek
    Do we think Tomori might get his place back ?


    Also I hate Pulisic

    Tomori will get his place back the exact week you take him out

    Pulisic was playing very well in the first half. He shipped a few heavy tackles in the second and hasn’t looked too bothered since.

    Wouldn't imagine TAA will come on unless to replace an injured defender. Mané will probably only get gametime if Liverpool are struggling

    Would assume a fair few will have captained Mané

    Mane more likely to come on than TAA alright. If Liverpool are absolutely coasting, Mane will stay benched.

    4 blanks in a row. On the other hand Ricky is on fire, 4 goals in 5 now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,654 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Feck....captained Mane knowing it was a risk.

    Vardy vice and Cantwell first sub


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,695 ✭✭✭ Sawduck


    Hopefully Liverpool get played off the field in the first half so mane comes on and saves the day, I really don't understand benching your best player unless he is unwell

    I just saw there that no team has conceded more Premier League goals away from home than Chelsea this season.

    They can afford a couple of slip ups in league
    They can’t mid week in europe
    Ahead of a heavy schedule
    Completely understandable and I’m glad in a way it has happened this week

    Lost 3 in their last 4 league games too.

    No

    Chelsea are tied for 17 conceded now with a few other teams.

    Arsenal 14

    Nope. Arsenal have only shipped 11 away. In fact Chelsea are one of the best home teams but the joint-worst away team on the basis of goals conceded.

    Didn't sell Kane for in the end...we'll see how that works out.

    In 90 league games for Dortmund he only scored 13 goals. He has never scored more than 4 league goals in a season up until this year.

    Liverpool have 10 games in under 30 days. They play an important CL game in the early game on Tuesday.

    He is only 21 now which I would have thought allowed for another few years to improve. Going to give him another couple of weeks to get some returns on my team anyway. It's not like he has been playing badly from what I have heard so I think he will get some attacking returns again.

    Absolutely think he is a decent option but those 3 games when he hit 5 goals was a massive purple patch.

    Probably best that Mane comes on for a couple of minutes, even though I have him.

    Considering almost everyone has Mane, bound to be a few that captained him.

    But the point still remains - benching your best player doesn't really make sense. if cruising take him off at half time or 60 mins.

    What will he do if after an hour pool are losing or drawing? Do you bring him on, or by your logic they have important CL game - just trust the players you have will get the winning goal, and leave him on the bench?

    Last season Liverpool let slip a 10 point lead in March? We are in December now and like you said games come tick and fast - why risk dropping points?

    Ask any Liverpool fan - do they want to win the Champions league again or the Premier League.

    Edit to add, Pool were up 4-2 v Everton and he didn't bother taking Mane off for a rest - again would make sense to do that once game is one?


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,820 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Just Alli and zaha starting in the3pms now
    Need a goal from each !
    Nobody in the evening game


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,680 ✭✭✭ COH


    Absolutely delighted to see Mane and TAA benched... lost a good bit of ground last week sticking with Salah/Robertson so really hoping that this week turns the tide somewhat.

    It's a gamble by Klopp that the players can do the job. His preference will be not to play him because a rest is needed at some point.

    But if he has to bring him on to try and win it, he will.

    Its quite logical.

    Kane (c) and Alli my two starters at 3pm.

    Also in 3pm games but less straightforward, if Mane doesn't play then Rico will come off the bench for him so one of them will be relevant to my score.

    Jesus and De Bruyne for the evening game.
