front 3 not firing at all,maybe time to start shaqiri and sturridge in a couple of games in a row
Its because they are being overplayed. Gini and Milner were 2nd to everything, not surprised as they’ve played nearly every minute. Milner is 32 ffs this is exactly what happened last time he hit a bit of form, overplayed till he became a huge liability.I'll say it.
Midfield simply not good enough this evening or in the last 2-3 games. Front three aren't getting a shout because we aren't getting a grip of the middle. You can run all you like but at the end of the day you need to be able pass it to each other every now and then. That starts in midfield.
Possibly but I think there's something more fundamental than that. We lost any control of the game when Henderson came on as the pivot. I think that says volumes about his ability in that position. We dont flow when he plays thereIts because they are being overplayed. Gini and Milner were 2nd to everything, not surprised as they’ve played nearly every minute.

Terrible performances all round. I really think that Mo should be rested. He just doesn’t seem focussed.
I agree with both of you. I just don't think Jürgen will sit him against City. It's not in his DNA as a Players Manager. He's very intelligent (altho at times maddeningly obtuse) he sees the same thing we do. He doesn't have the heart to sit Mo right now.Salah gets a 1/10 mark from me.
Not only did he do the square root of nothing going forward, but he left TAA exposed time and time again when their full-back was running forward. He is in terrible, terrible form right now, and looking forward, doesn't deserve a place in the first team anymore. Tonight, we played with ten men against eleven most of the time, and that was down to Salah. Do the same against City, and we'll get absolutely battered.
