Will be interesting to see how the young lads get on. I imagine Arsenal wonít go too strong as they never do.

Surprised to see Adrian on the bench. He did well when Alison was out... we should keep him ready in case he's needed again.

Looks quite strong our team. Chance for the midfield and Origi to get up to pace.

Actually really exciting to see so many fresh names on the team sheet. Eliot set to be the youngest player to ever start at Anfield.

Hoping Ox, Keita, and Origi have good games, and would love for Brewster to get on the score sheet.

Wasn't expecting that. Safe to say we've got some promising youngsters. Eliot needs time as does Brewster, I thought Williams played reasonably well and Curtis Jones was excellent when he came on for Naby...Naby wtf?
Origi was motm for me. Great goal by Ox.

Yes getting poor Naby off and Jones on really changed the game. Curtis made an impact!

Some sloppy passing from us, created a few of the Arsenal goals, but this is all experience for the young lads, they would have learnt allot.

Great determination from the team, they are learning that mentality from the first team, very impressive considering Arsenal brought on a few senior players as the game went on, so they finished with a much stronger team.

Naby looked injured again when he went off, hopefully not, Jones was impressive when he came on.

At least Naby was taken off as a precaution, because he was limping - according to Klopp.

Probably the most entertaining game ever played. Wow.

That we got over the line is fantastic, and those boys will remember this for the rest of their lives. Some great goals too.

He has toe done soon I think. Canít stay fit for more than a few games so might be worth cutting out losses here for me. Real shame.

I can't see Klopp doing that, he waited a year to get him, and no club would pay a large fee with his appearance record, I think Klopp will persevere.

Yeah youíre probably right. But heís no good to us if he canít play, which has been a lot since he came.

Yep, Klopp is too stubborn for that, he was about to even keep Karius after the CL debacle

At least it's not the same recurring injuries, he's been abit unlucky, he needs a good run of games, we all know he's a good player, but like you say, he's no good if he can't play due to injuries, sounds like he's in the reckoning for the weekend with a fitness test, so shouldn't be serious.

Re: CONFIRMED TEAM & MATCH THREAD V ARSENAL - 01/11/19 10:43 PM

Well maybe. But the injuries are mounting up. I like him and think he could do really well for us. But the injuries need to stop or thereís no point keeping him.

Re: CONFIRMED TEAM & MATCH THREAD V ARSENAL - 02/11/19 12:14 AM

I like Keita. That first game he played v West Ham last season he looked like he had real ability.

He hasn't really pushed on but has been unlucky to be kept out by injuries and some excellent performances by other players. I totally understand Snakeye and ghostgoal for wanting to bin him as we did pay a lot for him and we could still probably get a huge chunk of it back by selling him back to a German club.

But his overall displays both the other night and v Genk were not of a player who is going to be a first team regular on merit any time soon. And that is a worry for someone in their second season.

It must be hard getting into a team that is winning every week. When everyone is fit the only general change in the line up is rotating a midfielder out. If Wij, Henderson, Milner, Fabinho are all fit he doesn't get a game. He will also be behind one of those in terms of substitute use. So like Ox he has to wait and then take his opportunity with a performance that says he must stay in the team. He is always going to be under pressure to perform and that is not helping him.

He got a couple of goals late last season and then got injured again. He just needs a good change of fortune and I just hope it happens for him as I feel there is a really good player in there.

It was a crazy game, looked like both managers unleashed their packs to have a right old roust-a-bout. It was topsy-turvy from start to finish and from end to end, so much so I'd say Klopp might well have been peeved to win it!! Tbh I don't think we learned a lot from it, as it was just an almighty kick about. The best that can be said is that it'll give the youngsters a lift and a bit of game time.

It must have boosted our winning mentality and also the Fortress Anfield being intact is a positive to take from the Arsenal game.
