  1. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    We must retain him. Absolute quality.
  2. 29. Álvaro Morata

    I think there are different interpretations of “striker” but not “pure striker”. Pure by definition means “not mixed with anything else”. Strikers that are pure include Zlatan, Lewandowski, Kane, Morata, etc. They’re poachers. Their role is to get into the box and score and not do much else. Firmino does not fall under this category as I consider him a false 9, which makes him more of a decoy/advanced attacking midfielder. Salah, like Ronaldo at Madrid, drifts into the centre at will. Therefore, his role is a lot more similar to a pure striker’s largely due to the fact he’s a finisher and plays more advanced. Also disagree that modern day wingers score more goals than strikers. Generally speaking, strikers always have and always will score more than wingers.

    I never said Salah was a striker. I said he’s more of a pure striker than Firmino. If you’re playing more advanced and are the predominant finisher, you’re more of a striker than a player shifting deeper acting as a playmaker. I don’t care where your name sits on a team sheet. It’s your role that counts. I wouldn’t compare Salah with Morata, Morata with Firmino or Firmino with Salah as their roles vary too much and they’re incomparable.
  4. 29. Álvaro Morata

    This. Salah plays more advanced than Firmino despite Firmino being played centrally. Salah is more of a traditional striker in Liverpool’s system than Firmino is. Same goes with Benz and Ronaldo.
  5. 19. Tammy Abraham

    Any reports on his progress?
  6. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Happy for him. In hindsight it’s easy to criticise buying him but he was good at Monaco and even showed the occasional glimpse with us. Hopefully he can turn it around permanently and forge a successful career somewhere far away from Chelsea.
  7. 7. N'Golo Kante

    The elephant in the room.
  8. 5. Jorginho

    Disaster IMO.
  9. Thorgan Hazard

    Killing it in the Bundesliga. It would make perfect sense to bring him back.
  10. 29. Álvaro Morata

    It’s good in that he backed himself in to finish it, but I reckon he lacked composure by attempting the lob. A cool head would’ve gone round the keeper and slotted it. I also don’t think he’s in any position to start getting cute considering he often fails with basic finishing. Agree in that he needs to aim for 20+ goals. Still don’t think 20 is out of the question this season. If he can get another three or four (approximately one every two games) before the year finishes then he’s set himself up nicely for it.
  11. 8. Ross Barkley

    I don’t think he should be playing so advanced but I get what you’re saying.
  12. 8. Ross Barkley

    Barkley and Kovacic should both be in the side. Kante should lose out as he has been shoe-horned out of his natural position. Sarri is trying to turn him into Allan, which he’s not. IMO our best midfield going forward in terms of balance and fluidity would be: Kovacic-Jorginho-Barkley
  13. 29. Álvaro Morata

    If he puts that last one away he’s one goal off the top scorer. That lob was a poor decision though. Could’ve and should’ve gone round the keeper and made life easier for himself. It’s all upstairs for him. Once he gets some composure he will become a deadly striker.
  14. 7. N'Golo Kante

    I don’t see how he’s going to fit into Sarri’s system. Jorginho, Barkley and Kovacic would be a great midfield moving forward (with Ampadu developing). I wouldn’t be against selling Kante to PSG for £150m if it meant we signed some quality in attack.
  15. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Unforgivable that lying on the ground shit.
