Yeah, I think Clyne will mostly just be tasked with shutting down (to the best of his abilities, anyway) whoever is on the left. He'll have his hands full.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Totally agree on Markovic in for Lallana. Firmino has to actually look good and interested in a sub performance before we put him in the starting XI. Markovic in a position he actually prefers could do really well and bring something different that the side needs. And he has pace. Would like to see that happen

I don't know what the solution is, but I can't see how Rodgers position will be tenable at the end of the season.
Completely agree. Skrtel/Lovren looked pretty poor last night and will certainly cost us goals against Arse. Gomez and Ibe have a lot of potential but aren't at the required level yet. Lallana I think just isn't good enough.

We always start slow with Rodgers in charge so there is a chance that we'll improve in the coming months. However, we don't have a Suarez type player to lead us so think it'll be another 5th-6th place finish at the end of the year.

When Lallana is on with coutinho and it's like Henderson and Milner only, there is zero link up coming out from back so what happens is the more spacially aware coutinho brings it all the way up and distributes, rendering normally-marked Lallana pointless.

When Can is on he alleviates the defensive responsibilites of the midfield but also brings it up centrally instead of Coutinho, and can distribute to either "number 10" or feed it out wide which is a way more optimal approach imo.

I think the best LFC lineup currently is:

---------------------------------------------------------- benteke---------------------------------------------

------------------------Firmino-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------Coutinho---------------------------------

----------------Henderson---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Milner

------------------------------------------------------------Can-------------------------------------------------------


------------------gomez--------------Lovren/Sakho---------------------------------Skrtel-----------------------------------Clyne


This covers the wide spaces but also lets play develop up the middle where the creativity of Firmino and Coutinho can be an end result for the CMs and not the entire build up, which frees them up and also takes full advantage of benteke.

Currently he's been (I hope) simulating firmino with the spacially obtuse Lallana and having coutinho be the only central player bringing play up the middle and distributing to a marked benteke and an lolLallana which is not a good look imo.
Jake, was this the formation you wanted to post?

Benteke
Firmino---------Countinho
Milner----------Henderson
--------Can------
Gomez--Skrtel--Lovren/Sakho--Clyne
Mignolet

Some fat bloke on twitter is saying that we're looking for a loan for Markovic until Jan.

Balotelli is a bout of vitiligo away from going full Rufio.
