lmao Klopp's facepalm....
....your guys thighs made of glass or something? It's not that cold so not cramp causing it surely?
Toure definitely in trouble now
Hat-trick of hamstrings...
This is bloody ridiculous.
Every single CB we have is injured!
Buy one pls...
Are Amazon selling discount football teams?
Good victory but at the expense of 3 hamstring injuries. Will we actually have a fit CB for our next few games?
Arsenal are going to absolutely tear us apart.
Jeez looks like Toure has also picked up an injury..
Are we going to have any CBs fit for Friday?
So Skrtel, Sakho, Lovren, Toure and Gomez all out. Looks like it will be Lucas and Can at CB from now on lol. Arsenal will be loving this.
Regardless of the ridiculous injuries, I must say that Allen and Toure were absolutely outstanding tonight. Absolutely outstanding.
Special mention to Lovren too - he was flawless before he got injured and it's pretty much the only time I've ever been disappointed to see him walk off the pitch. Great transformation.
No fit CBs. Ilori on his way back, thank god.
Really need to buy for Jan though, though Klopp may not do it.
Nice 1-0 lead to take to Anfield. Away goals don't come into it until AET.
Are short term loans a possibility or is that only allowed for lower league clubs? Like maybe we could pinch a half decent CB who isn't playing from a top European club for a month or so... like Vermaelen from Barca or whatever.
Glad we won. Although for the most part we were very sharp and had created a fair few chances I was always worried about Stoke. Nice to see we were defensively solid enough to keep them out. Such a shame about the injuries as Coutinho looked really good today, linking up well with Lallana and Firmino. Also, Lovren has been absolutely solid over the past few weeks, I'm incredibly glad his form has picked up as I've always wanted to see him succeed at Liverpool. I'm gutted about our injury list though, surely we'll see one or two new faces in this window?
Klopp saying Toure has a cramp. Hopefully true with other CBs out.
Toure apparently only cramp so he should be okay
Klopp saying Sakho is unlikely to feature v Exeter.
I'm not that surprised we looked better today. It was for 2 reasons - Benteke didn't play so our front 3 or 4 players were all able to press high and quickly. Most of our chances came from pressure high up the pitch.
However that only really worked because Stoke wanted to play out from the back and didn't have an outball up front.
Not sure it will work against every team but a good lead to bring back to Anfield.
