Back from the NT break, back to winning ways, back in Europe. Toulouse are currently 10th in the league table, however, they are second behind Liverpool in the EL group. These clubs have met just twice before, in the group stage of the 2007 CL when we won both the games.
Gomez Konate Quansah Tsimikas
Gravenberch Endo Jones
Doak Jota Nunez
Pretty much the team I’d expect, but I guess Elliot bill start instead of Gravenberch and I’m not sure Doak will be available. I suppose Klopp will start the centre back that will not start against Forrest. In my book it should be Konate.
We need to focus on the league so I’d be happy if Becker, Virgil, Macca, Mo don’t travel, let alone feature in this game. I reckon our “ bench players” are good enough to win this game or at least grind out a draw.
He’s talented, very good technical ability, quick, solid defender - as a left back he’s more of a full back who can attack rather than a wing back who can defend (if that makes sense). Kind of the opposite of Calum Scanlon - who is an attack first LB.
Has played at CB more recently and that’s in part to help him develop physically as he is still pretty skinny. Went on loan to Kilmarnock last season and they thought he was great.
I think hes PL quality, body just needs to fill out. I don’t think he’ll translate attacking qualities into the first team, at least not yet, as that’s probably the weakest side of his game. Defensively I’ve got no concerns apart from being muscled off the ball - which to be fair I haven’t seen happen at youth level because honestly he’s just too talented to get treated like that against his own age group.
Will be interesting to see if he goes on loan in January and what kind of level that would be.
