This is it!

Another point further from Man City but by the time this game comes around, the gap could be two points (assuming City don't screw up again!).

Let's keep marching and put on a better display than the last time.

I wonder if Keita will be played into form? He showed some good signs but Fabinho is another level right now!

If TAA is fit then -

Henderson - Fabinho - Wijnaldum

It’s a shame there’s no pressure off the Bench for the front three imo. Both Dan & Div hardly fill you with confidence when it’s not happening for any of the front three like last night.

Keita was so bad last night. He either isn't very good at finding space, or he's hiding, as he just didn't get on the ball enough.

Ironically he started to show a few signs of improvement just before he was subbed off.

We're in a title race so we've no time to play him into form. Bench him :handshake:

foresterbloke 31-01-19 09:23 AM

I'd have Felipe Anderson, he looks a really good player.

That said, I'd probably have Ryan Babel back too, he looks pretty useful for Fulham!

Exiled_red 31-01-19 10:30 AM

What is the situation with the players who have been out recently is anyone likely to be back? Leicester felt like a very cobbled together side.

Chris 31-01-19 10:33 AM

Hopefully at least one of the right side of our defence is back.

But if our matches are officiated like last night and at City then it’s going to be a struggle to get any points regardless of who we field.

Buzzo 31-01-19 12:17 PM

Milner back also and a good option for these games, even from the bench.

BigChief 31-01-19 02:36 PM

Matip played well, better than VvD. And if we get TAA back then we're rolling. The lads will get back into the fast lane after their nice little jaunt. Just hope we can put West Ham away before half time.

danperkins 31-01-19 02:45 PM

I thought Matip was poor vs Leicester, I like that he tried to go forward though.. he's just too passive and had some very shaky moments, prefer him to Lovren though and he will improve with games as nowhere near fully fit... keeping him fit is the problem.

Milly back is great for options, Trent back is a big one.... any news on him making this one? We need a settled defence again, all the chopping and changing has 100% knocked off the balance. Even Robbo has had a few off games lately.Still raging about letting Clyne go.

We need to put these to the sword, they are a bang average side but I suppose so are Leicester. Ughhhh, more squeaky bum time watching this i suspect. Don't think i've ever been so stressed watching footie before.

S-RED 31-01-19 08:27 PM

Not sure who. I prefer against Carrol, matip or dejan? Is Carrol fit or on another sabatical

foresterbloke 31-01-19 10:30 PM

Matip hesitated before realising that Maguire was running onto the ball. Not sure if it looks worse in slow motion but it didn't look good.

It was clearly Van Dijks man though, he let him go. It’s unfair to blame Matip for not getting there.

Nicey 01-02-19 03:41 AM

People need to cut the team some slack, they have a record number of points, have just come through a manic Christmas fixture list not only still in the hunt, but have overtaken the best team in the Universe tm by the tune of 5 points, whilst dealing with an actual injury crisis ... our entire back line practically injured, now our mid field picking up knocks etc and we have not only maintained pace but stretched our lead.

I am looking forward to West Ham, should be a cracking game, hopefully, the squad will be in better shape. Also I have a feeling both Arsenal and Chelsea could do something against City

Agree, we can't fault the team really. I think we might take one or two games now to find out rhythm back.

Alisson
TAA - Matip - VVD - Robertson
Gini - Fabinho - Shaq
Salah - Firmino - Mane

Throw Keita on for some minutes but don't start him. Fabinho is starting to feel like a core player.

foresterbloke 01-02-19 09:51 AM

We're just nervous as we have the best chance at winning the league with a genuinely brilliant team for the first time in a decade.

100% this. We’ve got to keep our nerve & keep playing like we have all season. Unleash the dogs. :rock:

Arnautovic could play against Liverpool

First up this afternoon is West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini who says striker Marko Arnautovic could still feature in Monday's game against Premier League leaders Liverpool

The Austrian suffered a foot injury against Wolves in midweek but it appears he has just suffered bruising and may yet be fit.

"We are not sure about Marko," said Pellegrini in his news conference. "We need to see the development and the pain in his foot. We have 72 hours more to see if he will be able to play.

"It's more a question for the doctor. We will see on Saturday and if he can kick the ball."


'We need to play Liverpool at a high pace'

After three defeats in a row, next up for the Hammers is the visit of Premier League leaders Liverpool and Pellegrini knows his side will have to be in top form.

"Of course we can beat Liverpool because every team can win every match in the Premier League," he says.

"We want to beat Liverpool. We cannot play on nerves because they have top players who can change the game at any time.

"We need to play at high pace like we did at home to Arsenal and Manchester United and other clubs."

'I never celebrate when another team drops points' - Klopp

Earlier (see 13:45), Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was asked about Kyle Walker's now deleted tweet after the draw between Liverpool and Leicester

And Klopp was also asked about his thoughts on the matter.

“I never celebrate that another team dropped points or lost a game," said the German.

"For me, that's not allowed. I never asked to clear one side of the pitch and not the other. That's not how I understand sport."


Mixed injury news for Liverpool

Injury news from Jurgen Klopp who is hopeful defender Trent Alexander-Arnold will return to full training next week.

He has missed Liverpool’s last two outings against Crystal Palace and Leicester City after sustaining a knee injury at Brighton & Hove Albion on 12 January.

However, Joe Gomez is still not yet ready to return to full training as he continues his recovery from a lower leg fracture.


'Not enough manpower to clear the pitch' - Klopp

Next up, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has addressed the issues around the condition of the Anfield pitch in Wednesday's snowy 1-1 draw against Leicester.

At half-time, Liverpool groundstaff only cleared snow in the half of the pitch towards the Kop, the end the Reds were set to attack, leading to accusations of gamesmanship and Klopp has denied that was the case

"Our groundstaff tried to clear up the pitch but they didn't have enough manpower and soon realised how difficult a task it was," he explained.

"There was no plan to just clear our side - I can promise you that

"In England people are not used to these conditions. In Germany you give shovels to everyone, including the crowd, to help clear the pitch."

Fuzzy 01-02-19 03:43 PM

Gomez won't even be back for Munich, so we'll be without him and Van Dijk for the first leg.
Seems kinda irresponsible to go into it with just Lovren and Matip, but what do I know.

Fredo 02-02-19 10:24 AM

Lovren is out as well and with a recurrence of a hamstring. Most people will be happy.

Norbs 02-02-19 11:48 AM

I don't think anyone will be happy that we have no back up for CB

Leyton388 02-02-19 12:13 PM

Should have brought someone in as cover. Even Gary Cahill would have done.

baitman 02-02-19 06:19 PM

Fabinho as makeshift centre back is ok.

But then how thin is this leaving our midfield...
Letting clyne go on loan is biting us on the arse and may well be the missing piece if the jigsaw that ends up costing us the premiership title.

Pretty stupid attitude by him. I used to think he was okay and all!!!

He should want to beat Liverpool with West Ham to help West Ham.......and West Ham only. It's called professionalism.

Yeah, agreed. It's far too easy to be outraged these days.

Jas 04-02-19 01:20 PM

I'm going to the game tonight, don't know how I'll cope, I'll be nervous as hell and sitting in amongst the home fans is not going to help the situation either.

Chris 04-02-19 01:22 PM

Can't really blame him for preferring his former club, even if they are a despicable, corrupt club who treated him like absolute shit near the end.

One things for sure though, if Rafa said that about us there'd be absolute chaos in the media but he played it a lot more professionally when Newcastle beat them.
