Liverpool hosts WHU in a six-pointer. The visitors are currently one place, one point and six goal better than us. The Hammers absolutely hammered us earlier in the season, a result that saw the beginning of an amazing run which took them to the dizzy heights of top-four in league table. That was also our third loss in five league games, a sorry state that would continue till late in December. Since then, the performances of both the teams have been pretty much even. WHU has taken eight points in their last six league games while Liverpool has taken 14 points from same number of games.

WHU comes to Anfield having qualified for the fifth-round of FA Cup while Liverpool got knocked-out in Capital One Cup semi-finals, in a match that saw two players stamped-on and another limped-out. In all likelihood, this match will see the long awaited return of Sturridge. However, will he start or come off the bench is yet to be seen. There might be even questions about Sakho and Gerrard as well. As far as popular notion goes, the starting XI should be

-------------Mignolet-------------
--------Emre-Skrtel-Sakho--------
Markovic-Henderson-Lucas-Moreno
--------Coutinho-Raheem---------
-------------Sturridge------------

Right, so, the League Cup semi-final ended in a disappointment, but the battle for the 4th place trophy is just hitting crunch time.

West Ham are one place and one point above us. We are five points off fourth. It's not quite do-or-die game yet, but it's close.

West Ham are having a fine season... with Stewart Downing on course to have his best ever season. Why oh why he couldn't be in this sort of form when at Liverpool? Sad

Andy Carroll has more goals (5) in 11 games this season than our makeshift striker Sterling in 21 games (4). Carroll also has more goals than our actual strikers (Dan, Mario, Fabio, Rickie) combined (4). West Ham also sneakily kept Sakho from going to the AFCON, he's their top scorer with 7.


It could be a tough game, but we've been playing pretty well at Anfield lately, so I'm pretty confident that we will look the better team. Just need to start putting away those chances! Hopefully Nolan starts for them, he's even a worse passenger than Gerrard when playing CAM from the start.

Talking about Gerrard, will be interesting to see our XI. Also, is Daniel going to be on the bench? I'd imagine at least Lallana will start since he didn't play against Chelsea. I have no idea is Sakho injured or not. I thought Coutinho started to look a little tired yesterday against Chelsea and I keep worrying for Henderson, too. We simply have to rotate at some stage of this busy schedule of ours.

Anyway, a hugely important game, but one that we should win!

I will leave the next few league games for you.

Edit. Nevermind I just copied my post and deleted the thread Cool
You can do that!?

I thought Coutinho started to look a little tired yesterday against Chelsea and I keep worrying for Henderson, too.
My thoughts exactly. May be they will be rested against Bolton. Frankly, I would like to see how this pans out:

----------Mignolet----------
-----Emre-Skrtel-Sakho-----
Markovic-Allen-Lucas-Moreno
------Lallana-Raheem-------
----------Sturridge---------

Or may be keep Henderson and rest Emre and play Emre in Henderson's place against Bolton.

We need to win this one, before Spurs come to us, if we go above West Ham, it will be nice confidence boost for us to play even better against Spurs. If we dont win this, I will be really worried about our top 4 spot because after this game, Spurs and Arsenal go head to head and in the same week we play at Goodison. So we need to make sure that we win this. ALL IN ALL:

A MUST WIN GAME

Get Deadly Dan playing. enough is enough.

Our miraculous run of form will start this saturday.

Just as I predicted the exact same thing last February, almost 365 days ago before Arsenal game when all of you were in doom and gloom and worried about tOP 4 FOLLOWING DAT KOLO pass to Anichibe and underwhelming 1-1 draw at the Hawthornes.

The only thing that can separate us from the top 4 and deep runs in our cup competitions at this point is a lack of finish. We've outplaying every team we've come up against lately and I don't see that changing...the most important thing is to find an end product by any means that we can. Getting Sturridge back would be ideal, but even without him some of these guys have got to start finishing.

Looking forward to another strong performance, and hopefully a result.

I don't think Sturridge would be starting. What if we start like this:

-----Lallana-----
Raheem-Coutinho

In my view, Lallana is more down to earth/level-headed when in the box. While Raheem tries a bit too much and often losses the opportunity.

I think you guys need to cool it with the Lovren hate. Weren't you just calling Rodgers a fraud not even a month ago? Give it a rest. He's barely featured for us. If we were going to go with knee-jerk reactions we'd have gotten rid of guys like Coutinho, Henderson, Lucas, Sakho and Moreno all of whom have been fantastic for us. Defenders, especially with the philosophy that Rodgers likes to follow, probably will have the hardest time adjusting here.

Anyway, need the 3 points.

I agree on lovren. if lovren played for rafa in the Liverpool team he would be top class imo.

I respectfully disagree there. He would have had to bench Hyypia, Carra, Agger, or even Skrtel. He's inferior to all 4 as a footballer and as a defender.
