Not a formality this one but I think we will beat them but it won't be easy, I like Houghton as a manager and he has done a great job with Brighton after being shit on by Ashley when he managed Newcastle, got them back into the EPL, mid-table and then Ashley gave him the bullet for Pardew, 2-0 but even a draw would be ok.

"Gini and Trent we will decide by day, it's not cool," said Klopp. "The exceptional thing of that story is they both played 90 minutes [at Brighton].

"The whole world saw what happened to Trent. What a boy. Unbelievable to play that game, and afterwards we got the information that he had pain.

"Nothing happened to him during the game, it's just what happened before it. Adrenalin is obviously an interesting thing, it gives you an opportunity to do a bit more than you would expect.

"We will see. We will wait for both, for sure really close for Saturday, I don't want to close any doors before anybody tells me to close them."

Looks like Arnold won't be out for as long as first expected

Don't know what to expect from these. West Ham were able to win at Saints when the new manager bounce was more recent than it is now so really no reason we shouldn't be able to do the same if we actually play reasonably close to our best.

Need to get something here. Lose and Newcastle go above us while we drop into the relegation zone.

Unfortunately, our record up there is abysmal so wouldn't be surprised if we got battered.

Should be a couple of big changes due today. Morrison out means that Manga can be moved into his preferred position in the centre, while Niasse will probably make his debut with Paterson dropping to the bench (unless Camarasa is out).

Unchanged line-up for us at Saints. Unsurprising after last week's win. There was perhaps a case to put Calvert-Lewin up top and Richarlison left with Bernard out but nah.

Hopefully we can overcome the 1-0 headstart Southampton benefit from with Ings starting against us.

Andy Carroll leading with his elbow in to an opposition player, according to Crooks and Kilbane on BBC's Final Score.

Can't even pretend to be shocked xD

Crystroll Palace are back.

We've looked second best so far. Pickford with two smart stops from Ings and Redmond skimming the post.

Just seen Newcastle's goal. Why oh fucking why did our defenders do the grand sum of absolutely fuck all?

For fuck sake, Niasse was the only one near him before he took the shit.

Apparently Salah's been 'diving'/falling too easily again.

Salah not getting the penalty this time for his easy falls. Obviously doesn't get booked... Referee bottled it. Palace defenders weren't happy.

From what I've seen on twitter, the Palace goal came directly after a handball by Palace in the box was missed.

That's so relevant to the Salah diving debate.

No I'm just trying to broaden the info we have on an untelevised game.

Also how did Cardiff manage to make Fabian Schär look like Arjen Robben.

Perhaps but the fact you've quoted someone talking about Salah going down too easy makes it look like you're trying to justify it because Palace got away with one up the other end. Forgive me if I've misinterpreted.

We've been so poor. Zouma, Gueye and Pickford the only players to do anything notably decent. Our attack barely in the game and Southampton deserve to be ahead really. Hopefully we see a second half like last week but one day it'd be nice to see us put in a 90 minute performance again. A man can dream.

Coleman really needs to get in the bin I'm afraid. He offers nothing when he gets in the final third yet still bombs upfield and often into the penalty box leaving us completely exposed with three at the back if the ball breaks to the other side.

That handball call looked pretty obvious as well. Townsend looking at the ball and moving his arm towards it. Just before the goal as well. Liverpool definitely have a right to be annoyed.

Salah should've still been booked for his dive though.

We could make Ali Dia look like Arjen Robben tbf.
