There's nothing to say about this here but as always when I decide for the next game it's a decision for one player and not against another player. The back four now picks itself, but Can's comeback increases the competition in midfield, with Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum also left out of the squad to face Derby, while Sadio Mane (also rested) is certain to get a recall to the forward line for Saturday's visit of Hull, which means Sturridge could find himself on the bench again.

- October 03, 2016

It was a nightmarish start to the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National for Darren Clarke's European squad, but they rebounded to finish the day down just 5-3 after a dramatic comeback during Friday fourball . This is a new 12. "We're exhausted of losing this thing", Brandt Snedeker said.
