Van Dijk, Matip, Gomez, Trent and Robertson.

5 senior pros for 4 starting spots.

After that it's 17 year olds in defence when you're trying to get 100 points in the league?

Wow.

Side note but it's a strange thing that starting from keeper, through defence, midfield and attack the normal age at which you breakthrough tends to get younger. A 17 year old attacker feels normal, but a 17 year old CB/keeper seems risky.
And Milner can play both full back roles, Fabinho can also play at either center back or right back.

Yeah but I hope we don’t see either of them have to play there, but especially Fab. Millie could struggle if needed to play there for any length of time & we loose our rock in midfield if Fab moves back.

Milner is fair game, in fact I think he'll have more appearances there than in midfield due to the numbers in defence vs attack.

I don't think anyone wants to see it happen. I suppose the point I was trying to make is that perhaps Klopp would prefer a Virgil - Fabinho partnership in defence with Hendo at #6 rather than Lovren Virgil with Fabinho in front.

And if that is the case, then we don't really need Lovren as he is effectively 5th choice defender then.

I think if Lovren had the possibility of playing another position - like full back - then he'd be more valuable. But he cant

I cant imagine any situation where id want fabinho to relinquish his DM (number 6) crown for any reason. We play much better with him in there, and then henderson and Wijnaldum free to run forward rather than passing sideways

It would be a worry only having matip and gomez as serious first team partners to the imperious VVD with the new lad (van deer berg) as a potenial benchwarmer or cup player, and hoever as back up full back and maybe 5th choice full back.
Could we still sign an out of contract guy to help give us some additional cover?

Pinching fab to plug a hole only weakens us elsewhere so it makes no sense at all.

Totally agree with that. He’s the best DM we have plus he can thread a pass through their defence. I love the guy & wouldn’t want him shuffled around.

We'd end up with Henderson back in a position that he is not particularly effective in.

Happy we're not loaning him out too, why can't Roma afford him though? They sold Alisson last year and Manolas this year, surely they have some cash.

Glad we're keeping him. No need to take risks at this stage. We need 4 centre backs....... I bet Salah is very happy his boy is staying

So we need 4 centre backs but were happy to sell one but not loan him. Makes nonsense at all

November to the 1st of January is going to be a gruelling schedule. Once CL, league cup, World thing thing are added to the mix.

Unpopular opinion but other than the really big games. Id be happy to see Vvd/Lovren and Matip/Gomez as pairings to keep everyone fresh. One of them will be injured by then making this all redundant.

It just sounds like another Italian club taking the piss, have we ever got a good deal selling someone to any of them? They seem to love the loan with no obligation to buy there. Glad we told them where to go.

Didn't see any of the game saturday but by all accounts he had a solid game.

Fair play to come in and play well when he's hardly featured. I'm not his biggest fan and have been critical but it's only fair to give praise when deserved.

Decent back up.

He played well yeah. Said it before but he must be the best 4th choice CB in the league. He's erratic as we all know but very capable, and I'm delighted to have him as 4th choice.

He is good but unlike alot of players, well in my opinion, only gets erratic after a string of games. When called upon for one or two he actually plays well for the most part.

A few games in and he starts to believe his own inner voice hype.

Lovren: "I think people should recognise that I'm one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense I will say."

Klopp: “It would be better if someone else said that and not Dejan, but actually he is right.”
