We've got no defence, they've got no defence, both teams have goals in them.

4-3 and still last on MOTD.

Not too disappointed with this to be honest. Id like a settled 11 as much as possible

Would’ve had Fornals in for Yarmo personally. No Chicharito on the bench despite being fit, bye bye

worried about Yarmo, not sure there's enough in the team to accommodate his lack of physicality - along side Anderson and Lanzini. We're missing Antonio.

Yarmolenko needs to turn up. Hoping today kick starts his career with us.

Also not too disappointed with this either. Pell alluded to managing him cautiously

I've always felt Yarmolenko was pretty big? I mean powerful!

Yarmolenko helped kick start our campaign last season with big performances against Everton away and Man Utd at home

He has the talent, keep the faith

Nah, he looks quite brittle to me. and certainly can't get up and down like Mike. Great on the ball but can't stretch the game, and not much pace.

Would prefer him playing in a Premiership match, opposed to a game against a League 2 side.

Both teams have shown so far that they are perfectly capable of creating chances; Norwich did so up at Anfield, final scoreline notwithstanding.

For me, Balbuena might be missed; as much as I don't want to overly criticise, I didn't see much in Diop's game during the week that suggested that he was past his apparent loss of confidence when players run at him.

Obviously, we'd all have preferred to see Iron Mike available, but that's spilt milk crying, basically; one of the lads we've brought in since Antonio's arrival now needs to step up and pose some questions.

Will be high-energy today, from the visitors. Strollers and slackers need not apply.
