The winter break will help.

As will the rest for them this week. We’ve got four games to go before the schedule eases up and we have a break from a game every three days, 3 of them at home with 1 in the cup.

Strongest side for Man Utd, Arsenal, Burnley and a rotated side with 30 off the bench if needed in the West Ham game, then we get to play one game in 11 days, before a max of two more and then the winter break. That time can be used to refresh and refocus on areas of improvement, right not, Klopp is getting none of that time as it literally all play, rest, recover, tactical overview, play.

 This period is a war of attrition and we’ve got the squad to manage it, but as with everyone, injuries and fatigue starts to hit at this point, particularly for newbies to the league. If we play it right though, this could be where the league is won, and we can open up a buffer.

So… Howard Philips:

That'll certainly give Moyes something to whinge about. :D

Im pretty sure there will be a decent amount of rotation against Burnley.

SerbianScouser:
Dom and Ryan are still doing tons and tons of good bits allowing us to dominate territory  and possession but unfortunately are failing at the most important one which is creating chances for our front 3.

Darwin is getting a lot of flak right now but he's a finisher who depends on service and these days Dom and Ryan don't even look like creating chances. As of right now Trent and Elliott are looking much more likely to make good passes into the box and maybe we should consider putting them more often in a position to be closer to our forwards.

Dom is still indispensable to me, his industry and legs makes us competitive , it's just that maybe he's more of a water carrier rather than an attacking midfield creator after all. Food for thought.
