With Liverpool having a little a dip in form, you would be hopeful that Fulham at home would be the ideal game to take us into the international break. Here’s who The Anfield Talk’s Ian (@ianyoungkop) think the boss will go with to try and get us 3 points today.
Alisson: Alisson who I has took some criticism for the second goal conceded against Red Star Belgrade, has looked a little exposed in our last few games and has looked a little shaken. Hopefully he’s less exposed today.
Gomez: I think the boss will bring Lovren back in today and therefore push Gomez to right back. Trent has been struggling so far this season, and with no sign of Clyne, Gomez is the natural replacement.
Lovren: Due to a mix of injury and illness plus the form of Joe Gomez, Lovren hasn’t had much chance to impress so far this season. He’ll be hoping he gets the chance today.
Van Dijk: Van Dijk will be wanting to get back to keeping clean sheets after the dip in form of our defence. Hasn’t looked terrible, but definitely not at his best for the 2-3 matches.
Robertson: After setting such height standards last season, “Robbo” has definitely fallen short this season. Hopefully his form will pick up going into the busy winter period.
Fabinho: Despite criticism for his performance against Arsenal, I definitely think he should’ve been picked midweek. I think it’s time Fabinho was given a decent run in the team, or he’ll never learn how to play in this team.
Winjaldum: Gini has been one of our most improved and impressive players this season, although I do think he’s struggled in the last two games. Hopefully it’s just a blip and he’ll be back to his best sooner rather than later.
Keita: I think this could be the game to unleash Naby and maybe try him as the most advanced midfielder. We where all so excited to see Keita in the red shirt, and unfortunately he’s only been a bit part player so far.
Mane: Mane was probably our best player on Tuesday and has probably been our best attacker so far this season. If he could just click with the other two attackers like last season, we’ll be on to something.
Firmino: Firmino is probably suffering his worst period, form wise, since Klopp took over, not sure whether it’s a World Cup hangover or his almost new deeper role, but I hope he’s back to the Bobby we love soon.
Salah: Salah has gone two games without a goal, something that almost never happened last season. Probably doesn’t help he has about four opponents around him every time he picks up the ball now. Hopefully he’ll get his mojo back soon.
