    Massive game obviously; hope the boys come out and take the game to Tottenham early. Just watch out for those Kane dives.
    I'm also a big fan of NT games. People hate on them way too much.

    You will.

    And Vorm has been LFC kryptonite in the past if I remember correctly.

    This game just feels like a draw that I will angry about afterwards to me.

    Vorm has always been GOAT against Liverpool.

    The international break was super boring.

    I like our chances this week, but with two huge games I am not sure which is the priority.

    Tottenham without Alli and Lloris so this should be an easy Liverpool win.

    Vorm has be done for at least a year now and we have no good replacement for Alli.

    The international break when the games aren't qualifying for something are an ****in waste of time. But I appreciate them this time so players from the World Cup can get some breaks from footballing.

    Spurs/Liverpool should be a good one, a draw would be an absolutely wonderful result.

    That's like, your opinion, man.... Would be the suitable quote here. :P

    Some tasty games ahead, let's see how we go against the grain and out of nowhere smash Everton away. :D :D

    I'll go glass half full and suggest that without Dele we'll perhaps have more of a defensive-minded 11 out there which might not be a bad thing against 'Pool

    It would be nice to see Fabinho get his debut, but I doubt that he does it in a game of this magnitude.

    More likely I'd like to see this:

    Wijnaldum
    Milner - Keita
    Having Fabinho instead of Milner will probably end up being the overall goal of Klopp's movement, but for now this should be a strong enough midfield to deal well with any team. Wijnaldum and Keita played really well together I thought in general so I hope that those two at least are in. Wijnaldum and Milner and Keita are an extremely press resistant midfield and that'll be important vs. Spurs and other top teams I think; all of them have played great to start the season and for my money Wijnaldum has been incredible at the 6 every time he's played there for us.

    Also worth noting is that Joe Gomez is currently 10 for 10 in take ons coming out of his own half. He's an incredibly gifted CB at breaking pressure on his own and getting the ball up the field. You can see it watching the game how confident he is in carrying the ball out of the back. That trio of Gomez, van Dijk and Wijnaldum when playing as the 6 makes it incredibly difficult to put pressure on our backline.

    EDIT: Changed my mind.

    I'm going Keita, Milner, Henderson vs Tottenham

    Then Keita, Wijnaldum, Fabinho vs PSG

    Spurs/Liverpool while the game of the week in the EPL is way too early for me. However, what's the status report on Coco? Asking for a friend.
