    Saliba - Gabriel partnership is all I want from this match.

    Hope we try a back 4 in this one. Also hope we play more on the front foot.

    Anyway, lets move on from the defeat and win here.

    Two very nicely worked goals from Rozza in a win from 2007...

    ...love in the build up to the second goal that Gilberto just powers past their midfielder in that 50/50, been quite a while since one of our centre mids could do that :lol:

    I don't think it's as bad as it seems right now, never good to be beaten by a better team...but Liverpool are now where we were in the late 90s and early 00s, they are just at the top, we beat Liverpool the last 2 games, they were clearly out for blood tonight...we just have to dust ourselves down and get back up.

    Win (and play well) on Thursday and (especially) Sunday, then we can go into the international break with hope that this will be a good season.

    The one touch, pass and move, pacy football of prime Wenger era with technically gifted and intelligent players is what got me compared to some of the plodders we have now.

    Think we might nick this one! 1-2 to Arsenal or we win on pens.

    I'd like a look at another GK and some midfielders who are first team fringe players.

    I'd say both teams will just play their youngsters & fringe players, if guys like Saka, Pepe, Gabriel, Saliba, Willock & Nelson, possibly even Ceballos from the start play then I've got slight hopes for this game, of course it depends on how many fringe players Liverpool play aswell though.

    They might as well stay in Liverpool. The game’s in 2 days.

    Rhian Brewster to score a hat-trick and secure a 30m move to Crystal Palace after the game

    I doubt Arteta will give Saliba a debut at Anfield if he didn't against Leicester

    I think we play almost like last CC match with Runarson, Gabriel, Ceballos and hopefully Saliba

    Saliba - Gabriel - Kolasinac
    AMN - Ceballos - Willock - Saka
    Pepe - Nketiah - Nelson​

    Hate having to play these steroid munchers twice in a row, it will tire us out too much.

    Saliba didn't impress for the reserve team so far, but would definitely consider giving Holding a break

    That's disappointing, always thought you like big guys on steroids :)

    Think we are all praying for a Saliba run out. I get he is protecting him & looking to ease him in but the league cup games should be perfect for that. It's not like he is average & would be a major drop off from what we have!

    When they play for us not against.
