3-0 at half time.
Let's hope Ole does not disrupt the flow of the game by making changes too soon as our defence cannot even cope with a single Demba Ba

As expected Ole disrupted the flow with his subs.
Second half we are mostly second best for the one on one situation

Final goal scored by DJ after a string of good passing
But second half they looked like scoring everytime they attacked
Our first half performance was excellent but as soon as Ole made the early subs in 2nd half we were just an average team.
DVDB and EC were good, esp DVDB which showed that he can play together with BF and sooner Ole recognise this, the better we would be

1st half was superb, 2nd half I nearly sleep!

Again, the formation and team selection was good.
Hopefully, Ole make another change in the team to replace either of the CB with Tuanzebe for added pace and we should be able to defeat Soton this weekend.

A win and what a shot by Fernandes for the first goal. First half's play was good.

It would be anyone's guess whom Ole would field this weekend.
Injury list update:
AWB - expected to be ok this weekend
PP - expected to be ok but hope he does not start
LS - projected comeback date is 23rd Dec (one player that for reasons known to himself that whenever he starts to play better, he gets injured)
EB - expected to be ok this weekend but a player who does not protect himself whenever he tackled. Far too injury prone for a stable stint
JL - No known date but who cares
PJ - the forgotten player who spends more time on the injured list. No wonder no other teams in the league is looking to sign him
MR - another forgotten player who last played Nov 2019

Fortunately key players are ok so far this weekend.

But the media and soccer pundits are highlighting the injury problem of a certain team everytime they play. These people should realise that injuries is part and parcel of football and the teams have to deal with it. Many teams faced major injury problems last season and even presently, but one central defender got injured, it has been constantly talked up even up till today.

A very weird post match interview by Klopp with the press.
He sounded absolutely disgusted

I can understand Klopp's frustration about the fixtures but he should address this with his Board who are the ones that agreed with the EPL Board. While it is very noble for him to protect his players (so does every other managers) he must not forget that his club also receive a big chunk in the viewers' proceeds too and that this is the primary concern for all clubs. That is the reality in today's world...economic survival.
But what irks me was his comment about Chris Wilder (Sheffield United manager) who does not agree with 5 subs to be used. He need not rub it in by saying that CW team has only 3 points to show (or something to that effect). These are my personal opinions
