Compo only kicks in after 28 days so they'll be hoping its not long covid, at least.

Has tested negative.

Quote:

Liverpool are set to welcome Mohamed Salah back to training on Monday, however, after he missed Sunday evening’s encounter with Leicester.

“That’s what I’ve heard, yes, it [was] negative today,” detailed Klopp. “I think he is from now on pretty normal in testing. Tomorrow we have the UEFA testing for the Champions League and I am pretty sure he will be in that.

“He can now train with us tomorrow, that’s it. He will have two tests in the next two days, so, yes, he will be tested like all of us.

I'd keep the same front against Brighton. Salah on the bench.

Now that Salah has had an enforced break, I'd be looking at it as an opportunity to rest our other forwards. I'd give Mane a break next, then Bobby, then see where we are at after that.

Yeah Mane looks tired well his finishing does, I just think he is the one that sets the tone of the team by pressing. He's missed massively when not in the team. Didn't he miss the Villa game?

Aye, that was his Covid game.

It's a fair point though, I was thinking we could cope without him against Brighton or in Europe, but I suppose there is no guarantee.

Provided there are no long term effects it's not a bad thing that these guys are getting rested. From now until early January we play a silly amount of games

Mane had a couple of weeks out with COVID. Bobby has been rested / replaced by Jota in a few games and Mo has been out with COVID.

Imo the front 3 are nowhere as fluid in attack as previously from open play. All 3 regularly choose the wrong pass. But even if he gives the ball away he is still our most potent weapon. He can and does score goals from everywhere. Nice now to have 4 players on a similar level. Its not a case of dropping one for another, they'll all be needed.

In reality, we have 4 really good forwards. All should be in our first team. That is how good they all are. That is a brilliant position to be in. I didn't think we would be able to add a brilliant attacking player without selling one of either Salah or Mane. That is how much i thought that it would take. I thought that it would take a huge investment to make this team better. I also thought that we missed the boat when Werner went to Chelsea. He seemed to be the right age, price etc. Jota has surprised us all in a huge way. The signing in the first place came out of nowhere and he has really hit the ground running. Exactly the same way Salah started with the team. Straight into brilliant performances.

But Salah is still #1 for me.

It's interesting that our forwards are all brilliant, but you easily improve them if you had a magic wand. Sadio and Bobby could be more clinical with chances, Mo could hold the ball up better rather than just giving it away or being muscled out, develop a right foot etc. It's a good job for the rest of the league they aren't better...

totally agree! Last year we had the front 3 and if anyone else played up top, it meant that either someone was injured or that it was a cup game..

I also thought that it would cost a fortune to get someone good enough to rotate the top 3 without a serious drop off in quality... and the other problem was that anyone that is good enough to play in our front 3 would want a guaranteed starting spot. Jota seems to be happy to fight for his place.

Also heís at a perfect age- will be coming into his prime years, as our front 3 enter the Milner years... what a fuckin awesome signing, once again!!


Also agree that Salah is number 1 still!

This is a good point Bob, never really thought about it that much, but you're right he does. His speed and engine means he covers a lot of ground for 90 mins, never lets up. Bobby is similar, but without the speed.

Must be a nightmare to face non-stop for 90 mins if you're a defender

Absolutely love him.

He's soooo deadly.

Wolves were making a game of it up until Mo seizes on half a chamce and there was only one outcome. Game over.

Yep, the underrated Mo. His defensive game was huge yesterday too- not sure I’ve seen that from him to that extent before.

He played really well again last night.

Played one clipped pass from right to left that was so nonchalant. He doesn’t seem to get the love. He does get the goals. Every single match. Where would we be without him?

Aye, been conscious of that for a while now, although wasn't sure if it had started levelling out yet as I think he went on a good run in November that year.

He has set the bar so unbelievably high.

Almost as if he has to score more than one goal for anyone to give him credit.

Nah, there were others in the match thread. I always find him incredibly frustrating to watch. But his record is nothing short of astonishing and that's the main thing. I also think if he went to Barca or Madrid he would flop to a certain extent. Our set up suits him and allows him to get into the positions he does. Was impressed by his chasing back yesterday though. First half there was a point he ended up at right back.

I meant over the head of our players, but as soon as I hit submit I realised it was a shit joke and probably not clear.
