    I wouldn’t say there’d be too many with back to back away 5-0 wins in the league

    How about 3 weeks in a row of a different player getting a hattrick for a club? I'd be amazed if it's ever happened anywhere in the top leagues in Europe before. Jota, and Mane to start alongside Salah on Saturday to help make it happen.

    Kelleher, Williams, Gomez, Philips, Tsimikas, Origi, Minamino and others will rack up minutes over coming weeks. In previous seasons they wouldn't be looking forward to many on the horizon but they have at least 3 games coming up where most will be involved, can only be a good thing.

    Also with Salah, Mane and Keita away for a few games it will mean lads aren't coming in from the cold to play and they'll be relatively sharp.

    Bad news from Jurgen Klopp on Roberto Firmino

    “Bobby is not good news with a serious hamstring injury, really unfortunate. We don’t know exactly how long he will be out but it will be not now after the international break directly. We have to work on that.”

    And Liverpool FC will be without both Curtis Jones (eye) and Joe Gomez (calf) at West Ham too.

    “Curtis is a completely different story [to Firmino], he was very unlucky in training – he got a finger that scratched the eye. I had a lot of injuries to players in my career, that was not involved. He is on the way back but we have to see how long exactly.

    “He will be back after the international break, for sure, but in the international break we have to see when he can start doing proper stuff again.

    “And Joey, hopefully after the international break as well.”

    Naby Keita and James Milner (both hamstring) and Harvey Elliott (ankle) remain sidelined too.

    Tsimikas needs to be first choice for a while.

    With a new variant been discovered in South Africa, could this have an impact on AFCON Cup?
    Could be good news for us

    Good news for us as a club to have a few players back, could be horrendous news for the human race as a species. Probably mixed news at best.

    I have to say, the "probably mixed news at best" shout has me pissing myself laughing.

    Yeah we'll have to wait and see how it plays out before determining if it's a positive turn of events or not.
    It all depends on the amount of deaths this new strain causes and of course the demographic of those deaths (race, religion, age, social class, etc)
    Personally I'm a Liverpool fan but not so much a fan of the human race, so as long as the number of white, English speaking, middle class deaths is relatively low, I'm happy to have the African lads available for a game of ball or two.

    EDIT: Of course I should've said lower-middle class.
    Man of the people, me.

    I was expecting this new variant, I was deeply suspicious of the last variant and the subsequent name changes. It seems to me when governments (UK I'm looking at here) lose control they need to bring in an new outside factor that they can't be blamed on.

    To be fair,I don't think Joe was downplaying the new strain of virus. He was just making a football observation.

    I wasn't having a pop at Joe and I'm sure Ed wasn't either.
    It's just better to make light of a virus (or strain) before it kills hundreds of thousands of people, not after.
    It's called comic timing.

    Liverpool are to add Brazilian legend Claudio Taffarel to their coaching staff. Recommended by Alisson, he will work alongside goalkeeping coaches John Achterberg and Jack Robinson, and combine duties with his role with the Brazil national team. #LFC
