      After dropping 2 pts v Sevilla it's important we win against one of the two weakest teams in our group.

      They are currently 6th in the league having played 11 games, winning just 3 and drawing 5. And yesterday drew at home against the bottom team.
      So not in great form and seems like the ideal time to play them.

      The flying Mane is back although Gomez will be suspended.

      I would go for

      Karius
      TAA
      Matip
      Lovren
      Robertson

      Hendo
      Gini
      Coutinho

      Salah
      Firmino
      Mane

      Oh and take care to the travelling Kop.

      He may deserve the nod but Firmino makes the front three more effective when he plays. Sturridge is better suited to a two, not a three.

      I've got no problem with Sturridge starting next game, think he could do a job in Moscow but what's the basis for the 'deserving' out of interest?

               Ward
      TAA Matip Lovren Robertson
           Hendo Can
      Salah Coutinho Mane
              Sturride

      Why not give Ward a shot. Could he be better than Migs or Karius? Know now how Achilles felt about his heel.
      TAA and Robertson likely come back in. Same CBs as weekend.
      Can for the abrasiveness, Hendo again too.
      What a 3 we have in Salah, Coutinho, Mane
      Be surprised if Firmino not rested, would probably go with Studge.

      Love having CL games midweek, something juicy to look forward to :)
      Another win would be great. The start of a good run!
      Might even be a good thing it's away, pressures on them, suits us.
      Cmon boys!

      Big game really. After dropping points at home last time out, sooner or later we have to win an away game now to get us to the 10 point mark.

      Here and Maribor are good chances and of we do the job at home we'll be through the group.

      Probably not so much what Studge has been doing, as what Firmino hasn't recently

      4 goals 3 assists this season
      Pretty integral to how the others up there play

      I think this is a tough game and any kind of win would be a brilliant result. We ought to be OK, but if we were to go behind I wouldn't be putting the mortgage on us bouncing back.

      4 goals in 9 starts, 2 goals in the PL, not exactly prolific for a front man.
      But yep, he gives other things, tho like I said recently he's gone a bit quiet. Probably due a goal as I say that ...

      9C when we play so not really cold.

      Luckily we are playing them before the winter cold arrives.

      Haven't heard of any of their players at all suffice to say all their surnames end in "ov" which is no surprise ;D
      A couple of Brazillians in there as well.
      They're sat 8th in the league at present so who knows how they'll play.

      We need to sit tight and let Mane hit them on the break.
      We've got enough fire power up front let's hope our backline don't buckle and give them hope.

      Not had a great start.  They only dropped points in 8 league games last season and they've already dropped them in 8 games this season.  Think they've only won 3 in the league.

      The last time they entered the Champions League as reigning Russian champions they also faced Liverpool in the group stages back in 2002.

      Their top scorer, and probably best player, Quincy Promes is out injured and so is their Captain.  Liverpool's toughest opponent is probably going to be the crowd.  Let's see what they're made of.

      Lets not underestimate them. Be cautious and do a proper job on the pitch and we should be ok. I would like to see Studge start. He looked to be in great shape in the last game. Very unselfish to have passed the ball to Hendo to score. He's always dangerous around the box and creates scoring opportunities out of nothing.

      We should have too much for them, but Moscow is not an easy place to go. At least it is not too late in the year.

      Don't know why we would change keeper again (I think that is not helping stability) but wouldn't be surprised if we did.

      Mane should be raring to go, and the front three (or four) must be better than anything the Spartak defence are used to.

      Ridiculous for two English clubs to be playing there in two days.

      We have to score two because we know we will definitely concede at least 1. :( How nice would it be if we were so confident of our defense.

      Therefore, I have gone for 1-2 for the mighty REDS. :)

      Ridiculous for two English clubs to be playing there in two days.

      I'm not sure why both the Moscow sides are playing their home European games on the same week - thought it was usually split home/away like Man Utd and Man City.

      Still, I can't see there being an issue - Moscow is a lot bigger than London isn't it?  In any case I'd be more concerned about the Russian badasses than Stan from Salford who got there a day before his game.

      I had forgotten Gomez is suspended for this. I see Flanno in the traveling squad. Hopefully Trent can bounce back from a shaky performance his last time out and play more like he did vs. Hoffenheim.
