great performance. Partey, gabriel and elneny were excellent. We outplayed united at old trafford. tactically, we were great. United could not handle the arsenal press.

i wasn't shocked to see xhaka dropped. one of the easiest players to be pressed. He is always suspect and the opposition always pick him off. Going forward, I think he should be benched and eventually sold.

Shocked to see Xhaka left out, delighted by the result.
Interesting to see what happens next weekend v Vila regarding both Xhaka and team performance.

I had to check the team sheet 3 times - gobsmacked but pleased he dropped him. Huge call by the boss especially as Elneny isn’t Partey or a superstar. Elneny certainly repaid the faith his boss showed in him.

Xhaka doesn’t fit now TP is here I’m afraid, he needs to get used to the bench.

I wouldn’t drop a holding for a Luiz next week.

I wouldn’t drop Elneny for Granit next week

The two question marks are Laca and Willian but Eddie doesn’t have it in him, Pepe frustrates, Nelson is a risk as would ESR. if I was to take a risk. Drop Laca for ESR and play PEA inside left or in front of Saka, ESR and Willian.

I think putting in two risks - Pepe and ESR plus a tweak in formation would be crazy after a 1 nil win against Utd. Especially as we want less tinkering.

Just rewatched a clip of Elneny pressing Utd all on his own after 91 minutes of pressing. What a giant and what a great clip to show our midfielders - what’s required to remove him. well played Elneny.

SY becomes the tinkerer :-)
I'd leave it as it is mate, who knows next week Willian and Laca could be the hero's while Elneny and Saka or Belerin and Holding might not be at thier best.
Give this starting 11 a 5 game run no matter what and see what happens in my opinion.

Agreed SY good post mate.

Also true 62, I get one maybe two changes because of fatigue but players need to understand players, you need matches for that.

Hi Banbury mate, I'm not sure how many Liverpool players started a premier league game before lock down last season but I know in Chelsea's last two title winning seasons under both Mourinho and Conte they used the least amount of players in the league those 2 seasons. Having a settled side can bring big benefits.
