    Sakho named Liverpool player of the month.

    Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho will not be sidelined with a knee injury for as long as initially feared. The Frenchman - who has been voted the club's player of the month - has told Liverpoolfc.com:

    “I’m very happy because I think it’s good news. Everyone thought I had a big injury for a long time.“But, thank God, I think it will be between four and six weeks. We will see the evolution. Now I feel much better, I work and I hope I will come back as soon as possible."
    Well deserved. Just gutted to see him out of action now, though. With Mignolet playing silly beggars, we need somebody to compose the back four and really stamp their authority on it like Kolo did last night. He led from the back.

    You know it's bad when you're getting bailed out by Kolo Toure
    Fellaini is a striker at your club...

    Sakho is an absolute rock in our Defence, but I would like to have seen Skyrtl share the award...

    Nevertheless, Sakho has really impressed me since Klopp's arrival.

    Klopp: "Sturridge needs to learn what is pain, and what is serious pain."

    Those comments won't do anything to appease sections of the fanbase who think he has a habit of ducking out of games/training unnecessarily.

    Players need to be sold, next summer.

    Sturridge - Injury prone , not "Robust".
    Mignolet - Costs us the title a few years back. Distribution is very poor. sh*t keeper imo.
    Allen - Got no pace , No aggression. Can't see how he suits Klopps tactic of high pressure with pace.

    Allen has proven useful thus far in his Anfield career. He's tidy, no frills or spills, and isn't a bad squad player to have. I think he deserves his chance under Klopp. He's played under BR for so long, that a new manager's guidance and influence on him can perhaps elevate him and give him a new lease of life. We shall see.

    Harsh words.. he's obviously had a lot of injuries so I don't blame him being worried about his body. We saw the same with Torres.

    Seems like it's all in the mind with Sturridge. Mentally he seems broken to me.

    Absolutely. Gerrard pretty much confirmed that in parts of his autobiography, too. He said sometimes Sturridge needed to be gee-d up to play, and he'd often doubt his fitness and would need to be pulled through and risked.

    Plenty of players play without feeling 100%. 100% fitness is a myth, anyway. Nobody is 100% fit, unless they're about 16 and have never played a full 90 before.

    Sturridge seems to be somebody who will doubt himself, and that's not a good quality to have in top level sport. He needs courage and conviction.

    Gerrard also said that he was thinking of pulling out of the United game at Anfield in 2013-14, when we were without Suarez. Gerrard practically begged him to play, and he was proven right, because Sturridge scored the winner and led the line excellently.

    The issue is that doesn't happen. He plays, and is fine, but it's in training these injuries occur. He needs to either be managed better at Melwood, or get over this some sort of psychosomatic complex.

    Sometimes you just have to say it how it is though and hope the harsh truth can kick somebody in to action.
    I feel like Klopp making a comment like that is potentially a warning signal for Sturridge. Rodgers would've never had the gut to ditch Sturridge but Klopp has shown us so far that he knows the decisions that must be made and he has the balls to make them.

    The man is an absolute top striker but (bar a few Arsenal mugs) he is the most injury prone player i've ever seen.
    He managed to stay fit for almost the entirety of the SAS season and i'm not sure that's a coincidence. Mentally we were at our peak as a club and we were worried about nothing. Nowadays with Suarez gone and Liverpool struggling, the pressure of being out for so long and the expectation of coming back and improving the side is just too much for Sturridge.

    The way I see it, we either sell him to whoever will buy in the summer or we re-negotiate his contract to a pay as you play basis. It doesn't matter how good he is if he's sat in the stands all season long. All he's doing is being an obstacle to us buying a first team striker.

    Well we did buy Benteke but agree about his wages stopping us from investing further into the team.

    Shame really because I think he'd suit a Klopp side more than Benteke.

    I think the main problem is him hindering further investment than the wasted money on wages.
    While he's here, we'll always have him in the back of our minds because we know how good he is when fit.
    That means unless we're willing to ditch sturridge, we can't guarantee a new striker first team games since we'll have two other quality players in his position too.
    I doubt we'd get much money if anybody were silly enough to buy sturridge, but offloading him simply for squad progression going forward is essential.

    We did and although Benteke is a truly great player at times, it's clear he doesn't suit us all too much.
    I don't particularly blame Rodgers for buying him since we desperately needed a striker and i don't think he could've gotten anybody better, but things are different with Klopp.
    He has a much greater appeal as a manager and his links to German players is absolutely huge.
    Aubameyang would be excellent, although i feel like he could probably go to a bigger team than us.

    The latter seems desperate to go to Spain.

    Sounds crazy but I'm actually a little pleased Shelvey is suspended for our game.

    He always seems to be highly involved in the scoreline so I feel like with him out things will be a little less unpredictable.
