Is Stage 2 Hodgkin's lymphoma fatal?
 
Stage 2. Around 90 out of 100 people (around 90%) will survive their Hodgkin lymphoma for 5 years or more after diagnosis.

Watford might as well not have taken the field today.

It’s why I didn’t even bother watching this game. Soon as I looked at the fixture list early this morning I knew Liverpool would absolutely better Watford.

If Salah remains fit for the whole season they’ll be right there at the very end in the title fight. Liverpool’s first XI is still as good as anyone’s in the world. It’ll come down to the big games for them and fitness of 2-3 key players. Because they’re likely going to annihilate all the small teams like they are today. Back to their best attacking wise.

One thing that could mess their season up is the African Cup which could see Salah and Mané miss almost a month. They’re a lot less scary with Minamino, Firmino, and Jota as their front 3. Still decent but not scary.

5-0 full time. I know early days but don't get why they were sorta forgotten by some people and sports people and all...Salah atm back to scoring for fun. Wasn't the one season wonder some thought he would be...

Hey ho..just get our game done

Tbf, they had a lot of question marks heading into the season. It wasn’t a given that all their injured defenders would look like their best selves again. Mané, by his standards, was really poor last season. They only signed 1 player who isn’t even a starter. And Klopp was talking about his post Liverpool life and about burning out.

I think it was right to wonder whether a team that goes 120mph at all times could recapture their form of a couple years ago. Annoyingly for all non-Liverpool fans they have.

Only thing that really makes me envious of them is the sheer variety of ways they can kill teams compared to us. In any given match one of Salah or Mané can be totally unplayable and world class. Sometimes they both will be. BOTH of their fullbacks can slaughter you going forward or on set pieces. Their damn keeper can launch attacks from the back. 
 

For us it seems like we either get goals from Rom or random defenders. None of our midfielders score, none of our wide players score, and our attacking fullback play has been poor overall, few flashes apart.

Gilmour starting on the bench for Norwich. Looking like another bad loan move for a number of reasons.

The fact Salah has probably taken his game to the next level is a big factor.

I think how they cope during the AFCON will be telling (potentially four games depending on how well either nation does).
