TALKING POINTS ABOUT LIVERPOOL'S SEASON SO FAR

Liverpool's title charge has a stronger hint of realism about it than any side since Rafa, Rodgers or Houllier, Klopp does not have it all in his own hands but his version of Liverpool have the steel in midfield and defence plus the goal-scorers up-front to win the Title if Man City slip up.












Points of Note on the Season so far:
  • Allison yet to convince fans: The big Brazilian is poor in possession and sloppy with his passes.
  • Van Dijk is a monster in defence. He has been a colossus all Season but marking two Spurs attackers on his own without conceding a goal was world class.
  • Why did we let Nathaniel Clyne leave on loan. Surely Klopp should have kept the experienced full-back as cover for the talented young Alexander-Arnold.
  •  Give Shaqiri more time on the pitch. The talented Swiss player can turn a game on its head and should be playing more.
  • Salah. Score a few more before the end of the Season please.
  • Man City. Stop winning all the time, you did us before, this time the League is ours so bugger off.
  • Seems Coutinho has not made the best of starts at Barcelona, not playing well. Often not starting, being subbed, be careful what you wish for young lad.
  • We are not playing our best football but we are grinding out results which may be good enough to win the Premiership.

STURRIDGE BETTER THAN MANÉ

Daniel Sturridge scored a vital goal against Chelsea on Saturday to keep Klopp's Liverpool unbeaten after 7 games in the league.

After his acrobatic equalizer against the same side in the Carabao
/League Cup during the week, the Birmingham-born striker has made a very strong case for himself as a regular starter in Jurgen Klopp's side in the future.

So where does 50-goal Sturridge start in Klopp's unchanging Liverpool team.

Despite Mohammed Salah's slow start to the Season, you have to persist with him after his remarkable debut Season.

Roberto Firminho is virtually undropable, linking attack to defence and scoring plenty of goals also.


Sadio Mané has been a great buy for Liverpool from Southampton and while he has scored some very important goals I would have Daniel Sturridge as a starter against both Napoli in the Champion's League  on Wednesday and against Man City on Sunday. 

Mané get his goals but he can also be a peripheral player for long spells, that's not to say that he is a bad player, but I just feel that Daniel Sturridge is getting back to his lethal best and should start as a striker in the upcoming games for Liverpool this week.

LIVERPOOL REPORT STAR PLAYER TO THE POLICE

Liverpool may have shot themselves in the foot in an act of madness.

Mo Salah was spotted using his mobile phone while driving into Melwood. Someone at the ground informed other LFC staff and what happened?



Liverpool reported Mo Salah to the police for using his phone while driving. They also cautioned Salah, Liverpool and the Premier League's top scorer last Season, himself about the incident and advised him against using his phone while driving in future.

If a team ever wanted to annoy or upset a player, they have surely done it to Mo Salah. The guy must be livid with the club.
He may even consider a move away from the side that he has rewarded so loyally by scoring nearly 50 goals last Season. It would be hard to blame him if he walked away now after this incident.

But I hope he doesn't and that he puts it all behind him and carries on scoring loads more goals again this year.
