      FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool: In game and Post match contemplation
      Dec 10, 2015 04:49:20 pm




      At Sion's Stade de Tourbillon











      https://twitter.com/LFC/status/674995649796923392

      Starting XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Toure, Lovren, Smith, Henderson, Milner, Can, Lallana, Firmino, Origi.

      Subs: Bogdan, Randall, Skrtel, Rossiter, Brannagan, Coutinho, Benteke.

       Jordan Henderson starts for Liverpool for the first time since August in this evening’s Europa League clash with FC Sion in Switzerland.

      The captain returns to the line-up for the Group B encounter, while Philippe Coutinho is named on the bench after recovering from a hamstring problem.

      There are also berths for Kolo Toure and Brad Smith at the Stade Tourbillon as Jürgen Klopp makes six changes from the side deployed at Newcastle United on Sunday.

      Great OP as per Clint.

      Very glad to see Hendo starting again. Him and Can will hopefully provide the energy required to load the runners.

      I agree about our captain and Can. We need to work hard and focus on our team building and Klopp's tactics. Thanks as well.

      Decent team, I suspect most managers would  play a reserve team, since we have qualified.

      Or could it just be assessing the team and where to strengthen next month.

      Looks like we are taking this seriously and wanting to qualify group winners to be drawn against a weaker team.

      Nice one again Clint,


      Loving that line up, great to see Hendo on from the off, and Can back to,  Sion should not cause to many worries so I see us winning this comfortably, 

      Love it if Divock bags a couple and Firmino to be a stand out player, happy enough with Lallana's inclusion you know he'll give everything,

      Yep, can only see us sailing this, and topping the table,

      Nice mobile attack with a strong physical hard working midfield.

      Will be interesting to see if we can control the tempo in midfield with 3 average ball playing midfielders.

      Good to see Smith having a game. I want to see Randall and Rossiter playing some part as well, 20mins of good run.

      Reminder that a draw for the reds will see us win the group.

      Group winners and the 4 best Champions League teams go in Pool A and are drawn against a team from Pool B (one of the runners up or 4 worst CL dropouts).

      Country protection applies in the next round.

      Porto, Olympiacos, Man U and Leverkusen go in with the Europa League group winners.
      Valencia, Sevilla, Galatasaray and Shakhtar Donetsk go in the same pool as the Europa League group runners up.

      Great to see the skipper starting again.

      Origi should be on a high after the Saints game as well so lets see if he and Firmino can link better than Roberto and Benteke did at the weekend.

      Happier to see Clint back than Hendo. Another strong looking team and a good bench also. Anyone brave enough to predict a score?

      Was thinking that myself, would be hard to concentrate on playing the game with those breath taking views.

      We'll win because there's relatively lesser pressure to win...

      Nobody can argue that Klopp isn't taking this all seriously.

      Looks a stronger side than we played in the Bernabeu last season when we were supposed to be fighting to stay in the Champions League.

      Fair play to you gaffer.

      Surprisingly strong selection. Thought he'd maybe rest a couple more ( eg Milner and Clyne).

      Main interest for me is hoping that Origi has a good game, as it looks like we are going to need him this season

      What's up with that bit of the pitch? Undersoil heating packed in?



      Good to see Mignolet starting out strongly.  Loves these European games doesn't he...  :f_tongueincheek:

      Only if we had Markovic, he would have been a better attacking outlet on that left side instead of Milner
