My sub conscious is telling me he's close to returning, I dreamt that I was watching him playing for us last night. I prefer the dreams where I come on as a sub at Anfield but this wasn't bad.

Could really be doing with him and Diaz being back asap. Think they would both help with our pressing from the front. The current front line players who are fit just now, wouldn’t say pressing is a major strength of theirs

Normal training next week according to Jurgen! Had a team training once this week then a planned rehab the next day.

No pressure, apparently his pressing will solve everything  ;D

Will be awesome to have him back

Great news, can't wait to see him back. Does that mean he should make the derby, on the bench at least?
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Would be nice if we need a goal for sure!

For him more than anything, not scored since last April
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Hardly played to be fair.

Made a huge difference when he came back against City. Can’t wait to see him back.

That’s a real boost. Really good to have him back

I know it was a muscle injury but wouldn't risk him against those hacking animals.

Player like him would be a godsend right now. Has the knack for scoring out of nothing, even when he's having an uneventful 89 minutes for the rest of the game.

Just looked at his PL stats for last season... 15 goals and 4 assists  (7 using fantasy definitions) in 2300 minutes. Forgot how good he'd been. 9 goals in 1100 minutes the season before. Good scoring rate, just need more of those minutes!

And his energy, not really seen him Nunez and Diaz together, I reckon they could be a frightener together, none of them know how to stay in the same place

When Jota,Diaz,Nunez are all fit and ready to go, who do you start  as LF/LW and CF ?

I’d go with following:

LF:Jota
LW:Nunez
LAM: Gakpo
LM: Diaz

Stick Salah down the middle, and then stick 6 of the other lads elsewhere. All about that left side.

I don't think you fit the 3 in the side, you have one on the bench unless one plays right without Mo. You want a good bench option though and rotation so it's not a big problem.
