    There is a view among many Liverpool fans that we won the CL and doing well in the league solely because our defence and attack is composed of world class players. Our midfield does not contribute anything substantial and is carried by Alisson, Mane, Mo, Virgil among others.

    Watching yesterday’s late kickoff I think Chelsea would have done better if they had Winji, Hendo and Fabinho in the centre of the park instead of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic, especially once they took the lead.

    Will they get the recognition they deserve and be hailed by all Liverpool fans at the end of the season whether we win the big trophy or not?

    As far as games go yesterday against Palace TTA was really dreadful I hope the claim that he would leave Liverpool for greener pastures has not gone to his head!

    Simple answer, every single player in our regular starting eleven contributes to our success, not one passenger in sight.

    Liverpool having 7 players in the World Top 30, and 5 in the CL team of the tournament (including two midfielders) is just one indicator of this.

    For me, our midfield is top class and a vital element in our success.

    And the only recognition that matters to our midfield is winning the biggest trophies, who cares what some fans think about them, when they keep getting proved wrong time after time

    Well said Songman, hope the players do not read the crap spouted by some fans on Youtube and Twitter.

    The thing is we got a very balanced team, I’ve never seen the squad so balanced and its not just the attack and defense.

    The midfield is very balanced as well, we both got players there that can attack and defend, we got a player for every role in the center of the pitch.

    We got that defensive midfielder we have been crying out for years, we also got those seasoned professionals that have seen it all and know how to play different roles on the pitch, we got a goal threat there as well… we got a couple of players that can dribble the ball, another couple that can pinpoint a pass and most importantly they never switch off.

    Yes some of our players could have more flair, more pace or more discipline in their game or simple be in better form but the thing is our midfield is very well balanced and they are performing at a very high level.

    I talk a lot about mentality because mentality is the most important thing in sports, the leaders we have in the team right now are unmatched in recent history because they keep up that intensity 24/7, a lot of that goes to the manager but I don’t think its possible without our captain duo.

    We got the holy trinity going on there..! I am so fucking impressed by this team

    The only thing this team is missing is a De Bryune type. Someone who can pick up the ball and run at players from centre mid. Im sure if there was a centre mid that could defend as well as dribble he would be the worlds most sought after midfielder. Theres a kid called Haverts (spelling) that plays in Germany maybe he could be converted to a midfilder who could play that role?

    I thought Keita was supposed to be our dribbler? Let’s hope he can finally get going for Liverpool on a consistent basis

    December is going to be crucial and then the Club has to make an investment in January. Most pressing is support/replacement for the front 3 as far as I am concerned. TBH I would accept not making the next round in the CL if we can keep on winning in the league.

    Without Fab our midfield will have great problem. I beleive that Milner is the best solution…

    Would that be the same midfield that got to a CL final?

    I’d play Gini in the ko. 6 role till Fabinho is back, cause of his stamina.

    And leave Henderson, Ox, Keita and Milner to fight it out for the two more advanced
    roles

    The 2 more advanced roles require the most stamina.

    I quite liked seeing both Gini and Jordan dropping deep, they had a good understanding and it allowed Oxlade to operate further up…
