Yeah there is always something special about the Liverpool game. Like I always look forward to it but with some trepidation.The one fixture I both look forward to most and that makes me feel physically sick when thinking about it. The only team I absolutely despise losing against, hence the sick feeling.
I agree that Shaw and Mata should play. I really like Mata in the big games because he can make things happen. Assuming we go for the midfield three of Matic, McTominay and Pogba it would be unlucky for Lingard to miss out but he’s a good option from the bench, as showed against Chelsea. As for Shaw, well Young has been bang average of late and it really is time we gave Shaw a run. Some may point out it’s Liverpool and will Jose risk him but he’s got to be risked eventually in a big game if he is to be the number one!Got to get a better balance then that rubbish we saw at Anfield. Especially because we are at home now and especially because this could go a long way to deciding 2nd. I agree with got to be tight and compacted at the back because there front 3 could rip anyone open. But not so tight and so compact that Rom gets no service and we look like we are hanging on.
I do think his got to find a way of factoring both Shaw and Mata into the team. Shaw because Young is done in my eyes and long term we need Shaw used to playing in these environments. And Mata because I feel like he gives us a better balance up front with his passing and movement. He done well when he came on at Palace the other night. Everyone seems to roam where they want and his cleverer enough to fill gaps up top that others leave behind.
Yeah. That’s one of the reasons I don’t like coming on here or any other forum. Feels like some of us are just waiting with bated breath for us to fail so that they can come on here and rant about it.Anyone notice how much more quiet it is after a confidence boosting come back win. Haha
