    Do you really think we can afford to drop Sissoko right now when we cannot rely on 90 minutes from either LoCelso or Ndombele, let alone 90 mins from both in the same set-up regularly? That would be madness. On paper it looks great, indeed, I think many of us felt that a 4-3-3 with those three was a great option for us. But being able to have a consistently reliable partnership back there right now is probably more important. As for CB, I think we certainly want a pacy CB who can pass properly, but until then I feel sure he will cut his losses and stick with a pairing which has -in fairness- performed well this season.

    A point of concern in the last couple of games has been Hugo. He simply does not seem to come for crosses right now. Why?

    Harry's touch was awful yesterday and I felt he was generally not "at it"...I know you have a dislike of Dier, but once again thought he did OK. Reggie was OK. Interestingly, the whole side seemed to miss Bergwijn's effort.

    As always mate, not much to disagree with there and in most of us of a certain "vintage", Peter Cook's spirit remains supreme.

    I remember about 3 times Kane recieved it well, beat someone, cut inside, feigned to shoot nicely, cut back, beat someone else, had a shot... it just wasn't his day i.e. they got blocks in or smothered him. I was certainly hoping for more, as the Turkish centre back wasn't present.

    How does Klopp keep his players fresh? Yes, they’ve had injuries this season but last season, they didn’t have many and yet, they mostly used same starting team without their players looking constantly exhausted. Do we need more work on fitness?

    This is another poor performance and result. After the defeat to Liverpool, we badly needed to beat Leicester to get back our form but instead we played poorly and lost. We didn't create enough chances to score but two defensive errors helped them to score as well. Aurier was really stupid to concede the pelanty like that. He has been doing well earlier in the season but his mistakes seems to be coming back to haunt us. Remember, Aurier gave away the needless freekick from which Palace scored and now he has conceded this pelanty. Alderweireld too should have been more alert to avoid the own goal he scored in the second half. With this defeat, we are not only winless in 3 league matches but we have dropped down to 6th in the league as well. We badly need to go on a winning run soon if we want to get back into the top 4 race.
