    Don't you have any reserves to promote? It's Leicester at home, the easiest game you'll have all season.
    Wisdom would be the first option but he's on loan at West Brom. Apart from that, it's Sama or Lloyd Jones I think (I'm a year or two out of date with our reserves though tbh, don't have time to keep up with it anymore). Agreed though, we look much better with 3 at the back, and Can as part of a back four would be a bit worrying. He can just about cope in a back 3, but Swansea's goal shows his deficiencies as a centre-back. Toure was fit enough for the bench though, so I'm sure we'll be able to take a risk on him to start, particularly as we don't have him for a month after anyway (due to African Cup of Nations).

    Only 5 points off top 4...
    W:14 D:5 will give us top 4
    but this year I think 68-72 will be 4th with GD being deciding. Still manageable..

    Why is Sterling still on at 4-1? Give him a rest, and give one of the sub strikers the chance to prove themselves.

    70pts should be more than enough for 4th place, could even be enough for 3rd. Everyone bar City/Chelsea are dropping far too many points, and don't have much going for them in terms of quality. Don't think you'll catch us, but Arsenal are definitely in reach. You could easily be 2pts behind them come NYD.

    i think the game being more or less over in terms of scoreline definitely helped sterling.
    in addition to it being at anfield.

    i believe you can't be retrospectively banned if any of the officials see it? And of course it was right in front of the assistant's face.

    Can impresses me more everytime I see him play tbh. Could be one hell of a player in a few years.

    lovely way to end the year.

    i think the best thing about this win is how comfortable the players have looked.
    the chemistry just seemed to flow easily.
    this new system seems to have worked excellently although this is only one isolated game.

    we still have a few defensive issues - sakho had a nightmare for the conceded goal and mignolet's kicking has been poor.
    however Can looked very solid in RCB and i like the idea of Lucas dropping back to fill in whenever he drives forward to start an attack.

    all in all an excellent display, sturridge to come back and signings to (hopefully) add.
    it's only one win but things are looking much more encouraging.

    To be fair the guy probably supports Bayern Munich too.

    Sterling should be retrospectively banned, but seeing how the media is dominated by ex-Scousers I can't see a trial by media that Chelsea/Mourinho are getting (pretty unfairly) at the moment, playing out. Really should be a ban but the FA are toothless and probably won't issue one.

    Of course if he wasn't English however.

    We're looking a lot better. A lot more intensity in our game and hopefully Sturridge is back soon. Beat Leicester op four doesn't look like the challenge it did a couple of weeks back.
