Yes that is a huge positive in fairness and it's all to play for yet. Sunday proved that liverpool are as shit as the rest if missing one of their core group. I have said numerous times on here in other threads that they would struggle if VVD got injured, seems the same applies to Alison.That's the side that was blowing teams out of the water after the restart. The problem with it at the moment is that neither Martial or Pogba look anywhere near fit. And Matic hasn't got the legs to do 2 players running.
We'll come back sharper after the internationals no doubt and can hopefully kick start our season.
There isn't a top 6 side that hasn't lost a game yet so we're only 1 result behind as long as we win that game in hand.
As for blowing teams out of the water after the restart.....hmm, not so sure, we certainly blew Bournemouth, Brighton, Villa out of the water and maybe one or two other relegation sides but the last 6 or 7 matches we struggled, performances were poor and I feel that maybe there were signs there which worries me.
Some players now look way off the pace, Pogba and Maguire in particular but if that's the case, why is Ole picking them? Pogba in particular, just play Fred who I bet is as fit as a fiddle. Martial played for France recently and looked very sharp so why does he now look unfit.
Anyway, all to play for but we need to get our shit together asap.
