With Coutinho out injured for around 6 weeks Brendan Rodgers is going to have change his teams tactics.

Maybe this will be a good opportunity for Gerrard to start getting forward a bit more often having played a more defensive role recently.

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton.

If we can curb the invention of Lallana ,and quell the power of Schneiderlin in the
middle and the marauding runs from Shaw, then I think we can do enough to garner
all three points.

It certainly wont be an easy game though the Saints have bought well enough
in the window, and if Gerrard isnt 100% committed to providing Lucas with the
support then we could hand the initiative to Southampton and the impressive
(leg breaking tackles aside ) Schneiderlin.

The reds to shade this 1-0 ,just hope we can for once retain the energy levels
from the first half ,and really give a strong performance.

I watched the U21's the other night at Anfield against Sunderland ,and Flanagan
who is possibly the only genuine RB we have available ,had a very good game ,and
if he had converted the audacious volley he attempted he would have trumped
Alberto for Man of the match.

I'd like to see Flanagan given another opportunity ,the lad was phenomenal when
he was first introduced against City and Arsenal respectively.It was only when a
bad mistake and a a slack back pass to Doni against Blackburn when we were
going through a period of uncertainty and now the lad is practically ostracised from
the first team entirely...... He's currently a far more solid RB than say the hapless
Wisdom.

Incidentally, Flanagan was moved to cover as CB when Jones was dismissed ,and Sterling
deputised at RB and both parties acquitted themselves splendidly.


Whilst we're talking about which players that could possibly figure, Alberto certainly
filled the void left by Texeira in the middle,and looked composed and assured throughout
the course of the game .....Slightly fortuitous hat-trick by the lad ,but his ability to
pick a pass was a contributing factor to Liverpool's win.

Jordan Rossiter in midfield certainly justified Robbie Fowler's claims that he's got the
capability to emulate Gerrard at the club ,the lad is a very gifted competitor who
has similar boundless energy and enthusiasm and an indomitable will to win that
Gerrard had at the same age .

Southampton's Dejan Lovren headed in the winning goal for the Saints on 53 minutes to end Liverpool's unbeaten run.

Any comments on todays result?

4 CB's ? If that isn't handing Southampton a huge slice of respect ,and what unfortunately
proved to be an incentive and confidence to snatch a winner,then I'm sadly at a loss to
explain. We clipped our own respective wings by condensing the play solely to the middle
of the park, Southampton never looked uncomfortable and imo were by far the most
cohesive team ,Gerrard was poor throughout and the obligatory snatching of the odd free
kick will not save fans from noticing this ....Again Rodger's played him till the end ,when he
was arguably the worst player on the pitch today .

Sterling is the most profligate player I have seen in a reds shirt since Ryan Babbel ,his
flouncing around with much arm waving after losing the ball worryingly more than repetitively
is painful to watch.

Mignolet ,was outstanding and just manages to shade Sakho as my star performer. Daniel
Sturridge was clearly not fit and looked sluggish and out of breath for most of the game.

Martin Kelly should have started today ,to at least provide the width we have been lacking
since Johnson's injury,and Alberto also, as we lacked any real composure with the ball.

Kudos to Southampton, who pressed and jostled us all game ,and thoroughly deserved the
three points for their application alone.

Shocking result this one!
Not because of it not being a possible result but the amount of pressure Liverpool applied after Southampton went up!
Liverpool front gave it everything and only a player of the calibre of Suarez would have made a difference.
What infuriates me about Sturridge is his decision making ,obviously you can;t argue against his scoring record ,but there comes a time when Rogers has to speak to the boy and ask him to be smarter.
It will make him a better player and more consistent against bigger teams.
