    100% agree - there's no substitute for creativity (yeah Klopp creativity beats hard work hands down)

    Mahrez needs to lose the slice of Warburtons Toastie from the top of his head before he signs for us though

    Nah his general play is not good enough.

    If the Mertens rumour is true, he'd be much better for us. Same age.

    Specialist goal scorer - great option for switching it up against parked buses

    Switching it up how? When there's no space.

    Teams set up to stifle our fluid front 4 interchange play - sometimes you need the Vardy run onto the ball over the top option that we don't have because we don't have that natural goal scorer with the pace that Vardy has.

    Ergo we switch it up. Not the prettiest football but definitely effective against a bank of 8 defenders

    Fair play to Leicester though. They came to play.

    don't get this. if they are setting up to stifle us then usually there is no space to run in behind, and that is where vardy tends to do most of his work. when he has to face that sort of team he is generally ineffective.

    We don't have to play the same way every game - we can drop Firmino for example or Mane or Salah - it ain't rocket science

    The lack of space is usually in the center where teams pack in the bodies

    Leicester played Chelsea off the park in that half. Chelsea haven't looked good recently.

    We huff and puff against the well disciplined defensive teams - they've all watched the videos on how we play week in week out - throw a Vardy into the mix, along with a Mahrez who can pick the pass for him to run onto and we have another way to play
