Klopptimist Prime - Liverpool FC 2019/20


Mr Big Shrimp!
Bit nervous but expected strong line up...

Liverpool XI: Adrián, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Firmino, Mané, Salah, Henderson, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold

Subs: Kelleher, Milner, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Origi


I expected Gomez to be VVD's partner from the off but Matip is a really underrated player. He's loads better than when he arrived.

Annoying consolation goal for the Arse :rolleyes:
To be honest I think we still look like we can concede once the midfield defensive shield-wall tires. They had some very tidy players on the pitch so I'd of taken that result all day TBH, they could have had one early on which would have rocked us more than a late consolation. I don't like team changes after a late goal though it fucks up the flow and I'm sorry to any of his fans but I can't believe we haven't let Banana go.

Good to see Mo finding early form and Bobby has been on fire since he came back from his break.

They look leaner and meaner than ever though :cool:


Mr Big Shrimp!
Pretty scathing report on the BBC (which I will dutifully share on the Arse thread for the record :D
Arsenal's scant consolation in losing to Liverpool is that they have got their annual visit to Anfield out of the way early - and this defeat was not quite as harrowing as some suffered in recent seasons.

The statistics after this 3-1 loss, which left Liverpool with the only 100% record in the Premier League, lay like rubble around the feet of manager Unai Emery and his side.

Arsenal have conceded 25 goals in their past seven visits to Anfield. Since Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool in October 2015 they have scored 26 goals in eight Premier League games against the Gunners - the most one side has against another in that period.

As a measure of Arsenal's progress and expectations this does not offer much optimism, despite it being an improvement on last season's 5-1 loss and the 4-0 defeat in Arsene Wenger's final season.
Arsenal: Bruising Liverpool defeat shows the huge gulf Unai Emery's side still have to bridge
