Brighton will be more difficult that the West ham game. They are better than what the standings show. We should play our best players (whose ever not injured)and not look past them.
Hopefully Mane’s back.
Much tougher than either spurs or hammers. They play some very good football but lack the end product. Hopefully Mane is back and we play Bobby and Mo with him up top.same back 5, Keita was supposed to be very close to being fit for today so maybe make the bench for this.
Don’t think they’re capable of parking the bus like a Burnley or West Brom so we should have more space to play in around their box.
Probably going to be Hendo/Phillips at CB again, Gini, Tiago and Jones in the middle and Bobby, Mo, Shaq up top. Hopefully get through this and have Fabinho, Mane and maybe even Matip back for the weekend.
Any win will do.
Time for your much awaited (and long overdue) hat trick then, @GermanRed…
Brighton are really difficult, but we only need to look at our game I think. If we play our best stuff, we should win. Adding another win is so important on our way to facing City, Leicester and Leipzig.
Hopefully Mane is back for this (although maybe it would make sense to save him for City, keeping him on the bench just in case we need him).
I see loads of posts saying Brighton will be harder than West Ham etc. (based on what?)
In the West Ham thread there loads of posts saying, West Ham will be harder than Tottenham.
In the Tottenham thread there were loads of posts saying… You get the picture.
If we are on our game we will beat anyone.
If we are on our game, it doesn’t matter who the other team are.
They played well but the result depends on us really. If we play our game it’ll be a win for tricky Reds.
Lots if opinions flip flop from one game to the next.
I just think a lot of people are frustrated coaches. When in reality no one (including me) knows the instructions Klopp sends the players out with.
Take yesterday’s game. Lots of moaning that we were slow, pedestrian. It looked to me the Instructions were, keep the ball, move them around, tire them out, don’t take risks. In fact Neville was complaining we had no runners from midfield. Then 2nd half he was praising our runners from midfield. Hmm, did these world class players need a team talk from Klopp to remind them or is it more likely to be the game plan going into the game?
