improved second half and was always trying to go forward....no way can McTomnothing start ahead of him on Saturday

I'd go with a midfield of Carrick Matic Pogba Mata with Sanchez up top just behind Lukaku (if he's fit)

Not sure you can chuck Carrick into this scale of a match given how little he has played. The aggressive press that Liverpool employ might retire him, not exactly the most mobile midfield with Carrick, Matic and Pogba.

McTominay was shit last night but his role at the moment is just to be the legs of the team and do the defensive work that Pogba can or will not take on. Pogba started so execrably it forced the kid into trying more and exposed his limitations. Get a switched on Pogba for Liverpool and we might still see McTominay.

Think McTomminay has to play tbh. Matic is f***ing shite when McTommers isn't there...

Probably should've *****ed the time and money wasted on Sanchez on finding a CM or 2

Carrick's experience would be a big help on either saturday or the Sevilla game, I expect he will start one of them and I think it will be Saturday although he may try and get McTominay to do a man marking job on Salah

I'm more worried about our defence tbh could really do with Bailly starting but can't see it sadly, Lindelof was awful last night and Smalling for their second goal...Young was shit and Shaw not much better but I'd start Shaw on Saturday as we need pace somewhere in the defence ffs

I think Bailly has to come in. People get on Smalling, sometimes fairly, sometimes excessively but he is still a far superior defender to Lindelof. Different challenge against Liverpool but I don't fancy Lindelof having to come out to the left when our full back inevitably wanders out of position. Salah would be delighted to get that isolation on VL.

That second goal was amateurish, 3/4 players all switched off. Matic should be stopping the kick, Valencia lets the runner go and Smalling is vainly appealing for offside, ridiculous goal to concede at this level.

Imagine the boiled piss if all 3 of them started. Hasn't Bailly played defensive mid for Villareal?

Sunday Supplement will be great if we park the bus and win 1-0.

I'm not quite sure what's more reflective of our mindset, the comeback or that it was needed. But I'm delighted. Too long since we had a last minute winner let along a banger like that. Top stuff

Lack of tempo at the beginning of games is a big factor. Arsenal away stood out because we took the game to them, but home and away we've had too many games when they aren't switched on (Spurs away) and they struggle to raise their level.

Suspect Mou will be concerned that we'll be outgunned Saturday and we'll get another sluggish, cautious start. Still think we'll get a result though.

Be better balanced with Lukaku right rather than Alexis. Lukaku's best link up play has been when coming in from the right & Alexis has always been better coming in from the left.
