    No Benteke at all this weekend. Milner and Sturridge out with injuries, Lovren on the bench despite being injured late on yesterday [although he didn't go down the tunnel]. Echo saying he's unlikely to come on.
    Surely Benteke will be sold (or worst case, lined out)?

    Has he even featured for us in pre-season?

    2-0 Mainz
    Problem with LFCTV - I legit thought we'd come out for the 2nd half and conceded instantly.

    In any case, probably a good thing there's technical issues; this is as poor a showing as a feared it would be after thrashing Barca.

    Good old Liverpool...

    Hardly a surprise, two games in 24 hours is a big ask, Origi in particular looked knackered.

    That's actually hilarious.

    How can you beat Barca 4-0 and then lose to Mainz 4-0 in the space of 24 hours?

    Confirmed Mainz > Barca

    Was hardly that bad lol, look at the team we played. If we start with our Barca lineup, only 2 of those started against Mainz.

    Even so, there's little excuse for a 4-0 loss though is there?

    Regardless, none of those games were competitive so they mean nothing.

    We have a stupidly tough start this season; a win or draw away to Arsenal in the opening game would be brilliant.

    If we play like how we did vs Barca we should easily win 2-0 since Arsenal's defence is somewhat makeshift. Having said that, a draw would be a good result considering how poor our results are at the Emirates historically speaking.

    Just saw some highlights from the Barca game, Mane really looks like something!

    I don't think one should get too euphoric, but the way they played, very nice. Great pressing, great movements and some of the players look very good. Maybe I was wrong, and the squad is good enough for at least top 4 this season.

    Only problem is, it's a long season in the PL, 2 cups, 4 more games, in the Bundesliga this kind of pressing was a bit easier on BVB under Klopp. But quite optimistic now

    It was 24 hours after a previous game after a flight which would have been straight after the game. The players that played were either youth or played in the game against Barca. It's not surprising that the intensity reduces, 4-0 is hardly surprising.

    Also, Barca had no intensity in their game so it isn't that surprising Liverpool won, as it was very much akin to the Man City game last year where I felt City lacked that intensity and poor defensively. I think Jam already made that comparison but that's just how it was. Pre-season has these anomolaes really, very little to look at really.

    Everton look set to secure a £30m signing of Bolasie, which is absolutely hilarious...

    Jokes aside, that leaves me very confident that Palace will fork over the money for Benteke now.

    Bolasie to Everton will be such a good move! Him and Delafeou on the wings will do damage....damn.

    Crystal Palace will get relegated so will West Brom.
