    So the last game of this remarkable season. You couldn't blame the lads if they have been celebrating since Wednesday. Would still love to see some of the younger lads playing.

    They handed medals out last week based on appearances, what happens if someone hits the quota tomorrow? They just get sent a medal?

    Did the club not get 40 medals during the presentation and then they give them out as needed? I wonder what happens to the extra ones?

    As for tomorrow’s game i hope we go full strength again. Same team that lined up against Chelsea would be fine by me

    I thought we'd go full strength with no games to rest players for.

    No Lallana and no Lovren. We won't see them again I suppose.

    The five appearances thing only means you are guaranteed a medal. As said above, the club gets 40 and can distribute the balance as they wish/see fit.

    Jaysus, if ever there was a game that proves Klopp doesn't do sentiment it is this, Salah needs one goal to get to 20, 3 years in a row and he doesn't start him. If he scores 4 can share in the golden boot. Keeping him hungry?

    Ox didn't do anything in the first half because he didn't get the ball. He stayed in his position on the right of the front 3, unlike Minamino who came back to the halfway line multiple times to get the ball. It was proof that Ox put the team first ahead of himself - he didn't get the ball but he kept the defenders held back into their position.

    It was a great run, great cross and great assist for the goal. It's not his position, but he did what was asked from him and assisted our first goal.

    In fairness he had 3 really good chances.

    enjoyed the game myself. Origi brutal until he scored...
