I thought I would never create a thread after the Newcastle game but you guys brought it upon yourself Laughing

It is never an easy game for us to break up teams and that too managed by Pulis. Pulis almost always comes with a masterstroke agaisnt us, doesnt matter with which team he has managed on the opposition side. Imo, Klopp will at some point work out the problem of breaking these teams who defend well and play physical against us. But we need to somehow keep taking points untill Klopp gets to build his own team with his own style of play.

We won games against Chelsea, ManCity and Southampton at their home :bow: but lost against Newcastle and palace at home :facepalm: we are the epitome of inconsistency.

Where as Pulis's West Brom beat Arsenal and drew against Spurs so he knows perfectly how to disrupt teams like us . We again have a chance to close the gap with our rivals. Lets see if we take it.

The good news: Can and Coutinho will be back in starting XI. Now the question will be whether Klopp goes with Henderson or Milner.

Coutinho should come off the bench.
Firminho and Milner should both be dropped.
Bring back Lallana. His pressing is key to our final third.

I'd like to see Firimno and Coutinho both start. Don't want to see Lallana's zero offensive productivity outside of running out there.

Cant believe we are asking Lallana to start ahead of many other players Laughing
Lallana :bow:

Coutinho must start today !

The question will be whether Klopp goes with Bentekeers Strength vs Broms brute force OR intelligence & trickery of Lallana-Firmino-Coutinho

Mignolet
Clyne-Skrtel-Lovren-Moreno
Lucas-Henderson
Lallana-Coutinho-Ibe
Benteke

I think Lallana is underrated. True, he needs to add a bit more (goals and assists) to his endevour, but his running and pressing does stretch and unsettles defenses.

I wouldn't mind 442 either with Origi and Emre replacing Lallana and Ibe. Gosh, we have so many options now :wub: .

Lallana was what we were missing against Newcastle, lol. He's our second best playmaker after Coutinho (or sometimes even better than Cou thanks to Cou's inconsistency). When we're not able to play on the counter - like we couldn't against Newcastle and like we certainly won't be able against Pulis's Bromwich - we need play-making (Coutinho / Lallana) instead of counter-attacking (Firmino).

But Cou's fit again and should start, so we'll see. Personally I'd drop Firmino, he has only looked good on the break-aways.

Philippe Coutinho returns to the Liverpool starting line-up for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.




The Brazilian clocked up 30 minutes against FC Sion in midweek as part of his comeback from injury, which steps up further today.

Jordan Henderson faces the Baggies from the off while Christian Benteke, Alberto Moreno and Martin Skrtel are brought in.

Liverpool XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Milner, Can, Lallana, Coutinho, Benteke.

Substitutes: Bogdan, Toure, Lucas, Allen, Ibe, Firmino, Origi.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too, that Lucas may not be needed against West Brom at home. But I hope it's not Can who is that defensive midfielder, because he just doesn't have the concentration, has cost us goals before, could cost again today if he's given that responsibility.

Anyway, I'm glad to see Firmino has been dropped in favour of Lallana, I think this game will suit Adam better than Bobby.

I think Milner is quite capable of that DM role, if it's him playing there I'm fine with it.

What's so funny about Milner in the DM role? Not any funnier than Gerrard playing DM and he did it for several seasons for us, starting roughly at the same age as Milner is now.

Well, all I can say is that if it's not Lucas playing DM, my 2nd-choice would be Milner indeed.

It's not ideal, but both Henderson and Can are better deployed in more advanced roles while Milner has been disappointing going forward - while Allen is Allen.

why does Coutinho have to shoot at every opportunity. He gets into nice little pockets and then ends up shooting.
He should do more often like what he did for the first goal !

Coutinho has taken the right shots, he's had the space, better shoot than pass to a worse position.

We conceded such a poor goal and almost another simple-as-it-gets one. Really need more fight when defending set-pieces.

Also, take Milner off, he's frigging useless. Put Lallana in his place and Ibe in Lallana's.
