    I think Saka needs a rest. Play him on Thursday. But definitely rest him against Portsmouth. He looked very leggy towards the end there. Such a talent, we don’t want to burn him out.

    Liverpool fans on twitter getting cocky already saying that he’ll be theirs next year.

    I'm guessing I follow more Liverpool supporters on twitter than you Rob and I've not seen one person say that, in fact I had no idea we are even linked with him.

    I havent seen a thing to suggest this but would he really move for a spot in the youth team?

    There's a few no name sites mentioning interest from Liverpool, United and Bayern, because he's not been tied down to a long term contract yet.

    A quick search for 'Saka Liverpool' brings up quite a few tweets from LFC fans wanting him.

    He won't sign a new contract on Football Manager 2020 because of interest from other clubs. :(

    Quite pleased with today’s result. Arteta doing some decent stuff at Arsenal.
    Saka is something else though, need to nail him down to a long term contract though.
    Defence a bit shaky still but glad we nabbed the 3 points today.

    Everyone was a bit leggy as they only got back from Greece late on Friday. Bit of luck required to get that result but showed a bit of fight to not crumble too.

    It looks like that shoulder/arm injury Kolasinac suffered that forced the Saka sub might be a bad one, but Tierney should be approaching match-fitness now (his ETA was late Feb) so hopefully he'll be able to give Saka soon.

    As he's still young and playing with his mates he went through the academy with, I'd hope that's enough to keep him where he is for the time being, and obviously as with several other players it's rather imperative that there's either a EL final victory or nabbing a CL spot in the league.

    Keita starts for us tonight, Millner left out of squad as slight muscle worry.

    Otherwise our first 11 as expected :)

    Gini! Yet another quality cross by Trent but prior to all that the initial run by Keita was good too

    Two goals that possibly should have been saved, but it makes for great entertainment!

    Still look miles off the pace after the winter break and Keita, in particular, looks like he's playing against Norwich he's so far behind the play.

    Henderson's a massive loss in midfield but we can't carry Keita when he's playing like this so Ox or Minamino on for him pretty soon.
