We weren't clinical upfront and our defending at set pieces was poor on Saturday. Coupled with poor (biased) refereeing left us coming away with an unflattering 3 Nil score line.

Jairo was at fault for 2 of those set peices. Indeed as technically gifted he his, on Saturday he ran around like a headless chicken. Maybe it's because he hasn't digested PV's methods yet. Either way, I see Luka moving up PV's pecking order now.

Ayew is a hard working, combative, skillful player but has no pace. Benteke does do good work for the team but he is a striker who wants/needs to be spoon fed and like Ayew lacks pace. Wilf was the only real option when it came to breaking the Scouse's highline on Saturday.

Perhaps both Edouard & Olise aren't match fit. I agree with most here, they will soon replace both Benteke & Ayew.

The U23's highlights, 6-1 drubbing of Leicester, showed once again just how talented Rak-Sakyi is. I'd like to see him as an option off the bench, sacrificing a holding midfielder. We've not seen Hughes yet but on current form Jairo would be dropped.

PV is still getting to know his team but the trajectory is, without doubt, promising.

I think they are match fit.

But I think PV is gradually integrating Edouard to take pressure off of him.

And Olise is young, missed some of pre season and has stepped up a considerable level.

PV is being patient and I think we need to be as well - their time will come

Sorry but Tekkers been fortunate for many years.
Can you imagine another top 10 team arguing he holds the ball up well for 3 years on 100k a week?

Serial non performer
