    Made a big difference in midfield. Rare to see a midfielder who is that good defensively but who contributes a lot going forward too. Hope to see him starting most games now.

    I think him, wijnaldium and shaquiri start the next couple of league games so not sure he will start Monday.

    Man City to Brighton is 9 days, and he only played 30 mins against Man City, so I don't see any reason he needs a rest for Wolves, 5 days before Brighton when he hasn't played many minutes in the previous 4 days before Wolves.

    His first instinct though was to look for the forward pass which we were lacking

    Looking like another great signing, Keita needs to catch up after coming with a lot bigger fanfare. Have full confidence he will work and the 2 of them will be first choice in our midfield for years to come.

    Did well today as a makeshift CB. A good option to have.

    City away no Fabinho and not starting last night couple of games the difference he makes was shown. First of the midfield three on the team sheet for me at the moment

    Excellent again as was the Wijnaldum and much improved Keita
    Fabinho and Wijnaldum would be my first choices in midfield and one other depending on the opposition.

    I think I'd agree, I'd say when Klopp has his full compliment Gini is the first name down, probably Fabinho second and then out of Hendo, Milner and Keita after that.

    Further down the line with everything going to plan I’d expect Keita to get the nod for the 3rd spot and that’s no disrespect to both Henderson and Milner

    Midfield today brought a lot of freedom for Wijnaldum going forward another aspect to his game we should be benefiting from more , can see him scoring a lot more in that midfield

    Think Fab's settled in quite nicely, he'll hold his spot for the remainder of the season ... assuming no injuries / suspensions

    Where does Ox come into the equation.

    On Fab, love the way he pelts those crisp passes into the front 3

    Never even considered Ox while still out injured
    Honestly forgot about him accidentally
    If he comes back 100% can see him and Keita been rotated
    Suppose we will have to see how Keita progresses and how Ox recovers

    Really impressed with his passing. Can see and executive forward passes really well. Looks a superb signing, really seems to have everything we were looking for. Very well stocked for midfielders at the moment

    He was actually better than Matip last night even though he is supposed to be the CB. That tackle on Lewandowski was immense, could have easily been a pen if it was someone else in there.
