Liverpool face West Ham on Sunday evening at Anfield meaning a home win to a side who lost 5-1 to Arsenal and are near the bottom in 17th place in the League is a sure thing, right?
Not so Liverpool have had two shoddy performances of their own in the calamitous defeat to Bournemouth and the poor performance against Leeds in the EFL Cup the previous week, so we have no reason to be over-confident going into this one.
Liverpool look out of sorts without Coutinho in the team, he is the focal point of the team, linking the midfield and the attack to devastating effect, without him we have looked disjointed and average at times.
The pairing of Can and Wijnaldum doesn't seem to be working with neither player sure of his duties in midfield, whether dropping deep or going forward, this upsets the whole balance of the side as seen over the last two games, one will have to be dropped.
Matip was sorely missed that goes without saying, lets hope he returns against Slaven Bilic's West Ham as he will be badly needed against a team looking to restore some pride and points on Sunday and will be looking to kick-start their Premier League Season especially after the ringing endorsement of their under-fire boss by chairman David Gold, beware Andy Carroll Liverpool fan's as another tough game awaits us.
