Think Sturridge will start tomorrow Ed?

{Ed025's Note - no RTID, i heard he was suffering with split ends mate :)....hes just not good enough to displace any of the front 3 imo mate..

I would say Bobby hasn't been at it but its early days.

id say start studger, he looks in form and there has been a different vibe about him in the pre-season and has scored few goals too.
Can start and give way to bobby around the 70 minute mark if it is required. Bobby i feel needs to keep it simple and smart. He has a very good squad all around him and he can feel free to be the authoritative striker now. doesn't have to drop that much, unless its to win possession back.

I think we need to be able to switch one out at a time, gove then periodic rests and still be able to perform. I’d rather that than resting all three at once and expect a front three of Lallana Sturridge and Shaqiri to be at the same level.
lol at city, mahrez sterling played one week, Jesus the next and sane hasn’t even started yet. I know their gulf is less, but I would not go into saturdays game with a front three of mane Salah and Sturridge thinking we lack quality.

Bobby will start, he needs run of games to get sharpness back. I can see him scoring tomorrow, the man is a class act and 1st and foremost a team player. I like the idea of Sturridge being an impact sub.

If it isn't broken don't fix it, that front 3 got us to a champions league final. Bobby is class and will rightfully start.

But they can't play every game Adam, and bobby looked a bit sluggish the he last 2 games, not saying he shouldn't start and with all due respect to Brighton, it might be a game to concider it,

I would start Shaqiri in midfield tomorrow alongside 2 of hendo, milner, keita or wiji.
Brighton will park the bus so we need some further creativity from deep.

We are playing 1 game a week why would you rotate? Do it when we play 3 or 2 games a week.

Don't change a winning side unless you need is the old maxim. The front 3 pick themselves, and as others have mentioned before Bobby is lacking sharpness, which he won't regain sitting on the bench.

Our front 3 needs a nice run of games to get firing on all cylinders again so that’s what I would do.
The rest are back ups not starters.

I think we are more likely to see Shaqiri start tomorrow rather than Sturridge.

If players need a rest at game 3 then there’s something wrong! Play Bobby every game I say, we are a different animal when he plays!

Firmino starts for me. If anything, I'd just swap him for Sturridge with 20mins to go if he looks sluggish or if we're 2-0 up.

The season has just started and we have almost a full week between the first 4 games. Why make any unnecessary changes now. There will be plenty of times during the season where squad players will get plenty of chances. They need to be patient and take their chance when it comes.

It's 2 games in the whole team looked sluggish salah for me looks of also

But teams take time to get going very short pre season for the lads at the world cup aswell

Patients lads.

{Ed025's Note - i disagree dezy, hammered the "ammers" and comfortably dealt with a tricky visit to palace mate...i really dont know what you guys want!..

I think we should just leave it up to Jurgen, why the sudden need to start meddling with the team?
All the players wear monitors and are constantly assessed so relax and enjoy the ride Reds.

Give Sturridge 15-20 mins at the end once we're 4-0 up.

Go ed Polecat lad, is right.
Jurgen will do what he needs to do, although Bobby is first on the sheet for me followed by Alisson Becker.
Going for a win to nil again, 3-0 or 4-0.
