Got to take some kind of risk and it's going to be a free hit for a lot of teams not expecting points. If teams just sit in we've got a lot of attacking quality for 90 minutes and seem better at trying to break that down then playing through an aggressive press at the moment.

I would say there are two ways really. Modern coaches love to copy Klopp and Ped and play a highline and press us high up the pitch and look to go after our pivots.

There is also the drop into a low block and look to take advantage of our weakness at 6 on the transition. Basically doing an Ancelotti. I think the West Ham game may well be a case of the latter and it will be interesting to see how we cope with the likes of Antonio and Bowen during transitions.

We conceded an almost carbon copy goal in preseason and maybe it is something we need to look at.

I think it was just a well worked set piece and a brilliant hit.  They blocked off players to give the guy on the box space and he hit it as clean as can be.

SerbianScouser:
Not sure if people are aware but West Ham's set-pieces are gonna be a major problem on Sunday.

With Ward-Prowse's world-class set-piece delivery their grocks are a bigger threat than ever. Darwin starting is an absolute must as Virgil and Ibou will need all the help they can get.

Obviously if we take care of the ball their set-piece threat will be limited but even if we limit them to a couple of restarts in our half we'll have our hands full.

It is an area we do tend to leave open though. We have 8 men in two banks on the edge of the six-yard box, one player stopping a short corner and one player stationed on the 18-yard line but ahead of the penalty spot. We tend to completely ignore the space behind the semi-circle on the edge of the box.

Both Karslruher and LASK scored after hitting driven set pieces into that area. With West Ham coming up maybe it is something we need to look at because they have the potential to crowd the area and Bowen to find Ward-Prowse on the edge of the area from a set-piece.
