One of two positions Milner has never played (goalie being the other).

It is a worry. Vvd is an excellent leader, and improves whomever he is alongside. If we lose him we are fucked though.

Losing Gomez and Matip for six weeks is so unlucky. Need Lovren to step up.

I wondering if Fabinho could turn out to be an option

Don't see why not, he's a good full back, can jump well and judge the flight of the ball, and can tackle effectively.

No. He's returned to training. I don't know if he's available or not though.

Trent had a scan yesterday.

As long as Virgil is okay then we will be fine. You could put Stephen fuckin Hawking (before he passed) next to him and we'd be ok.

I know the games come thick and fast but in reality the fact that we play on the Friday night before xmas as opposed to the Saturday helps us too. Klopp should book 5 days in Dubai for a handful of our first teamers for the Friday after the Man City game. VVD, Robbo, Milner, Bobby, Mo and Sadio could probably all do with a chill out sesh. Could be good for team bonding as well.

This is the best team / squad I can remember LFC having in a long time. We have a good chance of having a good season. But I also think that if VVD is out for any sort of period, then we are fucked. Alisson too. They are our two most important players right now.

This? Yeah, supposedly he has been carrying something but has returned to training. How close he is to the first team I've no idea but i could see Fabinho covering at some stage myself.

I'd have Fabino training CB every day now. Get him used to it and he should be a decent enough deputy to Lovren until either of Matip or Gomez are back.

It's definitely the time of the year when the squad comes into play though!

How are City getting on injury-wise? We seem to have been hammered with them lately.

Stones, Jesus and Silva are injured now.

I heard (or misheard) on the radio yesterday that players who have played in this season's CL can change clubs in the window and still be eligible. Have I got this wrong?

Ah ok so I didn't mishear - thanks.

So is it now time to scoop up a decent defender from one of the knocked out teams to provide cover?

Just looked at that, thanks. City's are nearly all very short term injuries though.

How well the two of us deal with our injuries will probably decide the title to be honest.

Kalidou Koulibaly.

Koulibaly is excellent, I'd love him at Liverpool but it would stunt Gomez's development which has been nothing short of transformative this season.

Very unlikely we'll be buying an 80m WC just because we've been unlucky to have two CBs out for 6ish weeks.

Sadly the full back position is now specialised and you don't get many FB/CBs these days like Carragher.

That young Dutch kid in our reserves can play both, so in about three years we'll have it sorted.

I'd love him too, imagine the defense with them two and Gomez rotating with them and Alisson in goal, would be awesome.

I do hope that Klopp is getting used to spending money on quality though, going big is really changing a lot for us and taking the team to the next level.

I'd maybe change my opinion if I analysed his defending on a rerun, but as it stands it was great watching Matip marauding forward yesterday.

Good to have him back as an option.

I don't think he's done that enough for us although maybe his lay offs haven't helped.

Watching him play in Germany it was the most impressive feature of his game.

Maybe playing alongside VVD has given him the confidence to bring it back into his game?
