I thought emre can done a good job the other night against city, so I hope he keeps his place alongside hendo and winaldum in future games. Just puzzled who is coutihno going to replace out of our front 3 who have been great along with origi.

This is a good problem to have. players not making the first team are taking their chances when called upon. this keeps every1 on their toes for spots and good form a must. my opinion is that while fit Lallana must stay in that midfield 3. obviously that includes Henderson in the deeper position. Wijnaldum has made it pretty hard to drop after scoring the winner against city lol. Coutinho/ Firmino/ Mane infront of Wijnaldum/ Lallana/ Henderson is what i think klopp will pick when fit. what i would really like to see (mainly against teams that are going to park the bus) is Firmino/ Sturridge/ Mane infront of Coutinho/ Lallana/ Henderson.

He's going to replace Mané while he's away, and we'll figure it out when Mané returns (hopefully fit and healthy) .

Can struggled and was poor imo. Not sure which game where you watching. He is lazy and doesn't track back enough. We were utterly exposed once Hendo left. The only period of time when City had us on the ropes.

{Ed001's Note - tracked back well enough a few times to get back and make tackles when we needed him. He is far from lazy, he just has a tendency to sell himself on the halfway line when he should be just holding up the opposing player. Experience will teach him not to throw himself in, hopefully, in time.}

He doesn't have the discipline and composure to play the holding role. It needs a lot of patience and good vision to read the game infront of you. To cut of the passing and anticipate it. He better learn it fast or he could be replaced. We shall see how Stewart plays today.

{Ed001's Note - it takes a while to learn patience and develop good vision. It is usually a product of experience and maturity. Can is still young, as is Stewart, and both make mistakes, the key is if they learn from them.}

Another issue with Can is he keeps the ball too long and doesn't release it quick enough which is why we pass backward and sideways to recycle the possession. People need to get over from the fact big strong powerful lad would easily become a top notch CM.

Can and lazy should never be seen in the same sentence.
