Finally, the pointless international break is almost over.
Finally, we get to play at Anfield.
Finally, there’s something to look forward to at the weekends.
So, Liverpool versus Leicester City, the EPL title holders.
Team news: Sadio Mane is cleared fit to play this weekend, after initial fears of him being injured during his game for Senegal.
What a player he has been so far, and it’s not far fetched to say that majority of fans from around the globe would want him to be the first name on the starting eleven.
Pace, power, strength, directness, and most importantly, goals.
Work-rate, assists, and a team player. Maybe our DS15 can learn a thing or two from him.
Lallana played decently for England as well, we should be seeing him in the starting eleven. Hopefully, it is an upward trend for him to keep improving his game.
The only concern is that Emre Can is apparently still injured, whether or not it was related to his previous ankle injury relapsing after not being fully healed we have no idea.
Which leaves us a big question mark in central midfield. Kloop got some tough decisions to make, counter-attacking teams like Leicester can tear open our midfield at ease if there’s not a balance.
I do hope Grujic gets a chance to start, and young homegrown talent Kevin Stewart as well. These 2 youngsters certainly can bring something different to our midfield, while Wijnaldum is certainly much more effective higher up the pitch.
I reckon Milner to start again at left-back as well, with Matip likely to retain his position at centre-half alongside Lovren after an impressive outing against Spurs.
Predicted line-up: Mignolet, Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner, Henderson, Grujic, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino, Mane.
Subs: Karius, Klavan, Lucas, Stewart, Wijnaldum, Origi, Sturridge.
