Can't see many shocks there, really. Leicester vs Liverpool (draw) & Watford vs Spurs (narrow Spurs win) are the tightest games there, but I'd expect Chelsea/Everton/City/Arsenal/United to win with ease.

(Burnley played EL midweek & the week before. I can't see them doing a Brighton vs United type performance).

Bournmouth could surprise - probably their best start since they've been promoted.

Newcastle at Man City will be like watching a herd of cowards running round saying, "Please don't".

Of all the games to get yourself suspended for, Vardy's record against Scouse is phenomenal too.

Klopp doesn’t trust Keita still? To be honest he was shocking against Brighton. A huge flop in the making.
He'll be amongst the best CMs in the league by the end of the season

Haven't seen him but thought he'd been good when reading posts on the forum?

Cmon mate, I was fishing for scousers! :lol: He’s obviously gonna turn out to be decent for them but you can see he’s still adjusting to the pace of the league.

Not sure the reasoning behind dropping Keita. Milner would have made more sense. Gini was good as the 8 in pre season but that was alongside Fabinho/Henderson and Keita. With Milner his role changes and so does the dynamic. He can’t make the runs he does because Milner shifts out to play as an auxiliary winger.

Why so many changes for Leicester? Should be a comfortable win for Liverpool with Vardy suspended.

Seems herr Klopp agrees with me on Kieta’s lukewarm start to the season. Seems these ‘supercoaches’ aren’t as dumb as they look. All we need now is Pep to drop Mendy for Delph and the circle is complete.

I thought Keita was very good against West Ham on the opening day of the season. Didn’t watch the Brighton game last week. Was he really that bad to merit being dropped?

Also wonder why no Fabinho in the matchday squad? Is he injured?

It was the last match where Keita particularly struggled. Westham was quite good, Palace was ok, Brighton was bad. We seemed more in control with Henderson on against Brighton.

Liverpool have a very predictable team, even with their few changes. I do miss the days where we had a proper first 11 with just the odd rotation.

The fact that Liverpool have a more assured back 4 than us is quite depressing! We seem to have a new back 4 every week.

Hendo has been good when he's come on, so makes sense he comes back in. Bit surprising Naby is the one out, but Klopp may want players who know each other well for this one and Keita has struggled to do well for more than 45 minutes. Might be Klopp would rather see him try that in the second half this time.

You don't think Bournmouth can score against Chelsea?

Watford will get a goal against spurs too I think.

Yeah. Their front and back lines are decent now. Their fullbacks look well going forward. Their weakest point looks to be midfield and they've sorted the attacking part of that with Keita, and Henderson isn't all that bad, while Milner is the sort of utility player the caf would buzz over. It's pissing me off talking about it :lol:
