      No changes for me, keep same starting 11 lets get 3 or 4 up and then make the changes.  Got to keep Mo playing as he needs to regain his form.

      I wouldn't be surprised to see some level rotation, Klopp was not shy about doing it last year and if you are going to bring in quality players to build depth in the squad, you need to trust them and give them the opportunity to play in meaningful games to both keep them motivated and in form.

      In the past i had not cared about the Carabao Cup but this year i don't think we should take it for granted and play strong squads in it. We NEED a trophy this year, even if its the CC.

      so we didn't get to a CL final then without Alisson?. You don't half talk rubbish.

      We conceded a hell of a lot of goals though and how many points behind City were we? I think that is the fairly obvious point he was making.

      So beating Manc city twice home and away who broke all Prem records last season is an easy route. Every single post you inflict on this forum is always about how great you are and that you know better than anyone else. Your on ignore from now on the first and only time I have done this.

      City aside it was a pretty easy group and route to the final, you can't really argue that. Sevilla main competition in groups, then Round of 16 Porto who were sh*te, City in quarter finals who were a serious test I'll grant you but then Roma who we made harder work of than it should have been and then Real Madrid who used their experience and dark arts and the supreme c**t Ramos to beat us, with the goalkeeper at the time being the main weak link.

      City had a historical season but didn't we have the most points and the best defense in the 2nd half after VVD and Karius became part of the first XI? We gave up 12 goals from open play in the last 19 games of the season, that is not a hell of a lot of goals. It is however, a hell of a lot of bullshit from you.

      City fall to pieces in CL as well. It's funny how Walton resorts to listing the team that Lyon beat yesterday. I remember in 2005 we had to go past a lot of tough teams. The funny thing is, Walton insinuated the result would have been the same with Mignolet.  :roll:

      Thank god. I'm fedup of Walton, he spent years slagging off England just to become their biggest fan during the world cup! Picks parts of my replies because he wants to argue... Then insults. Good riddance.

      How dare you..Easy path my f**king arse..we f**king hammered everyone bar Mardid on route you tit..

      We made it f**king look easy & will do again this season..
      We didn't hammer Roma. We lost 4-2, but won 7-6 on agg.. this was meant to be one of the easier possibilities too. Comparing it to this year our group is much harder this year and it's clear that's what I meant.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I may be on a joint but Mane and Salah needs to know that nothing is certain in our team! It won't happen but that way I would play.

      We clearly deserved to best PSG but in our quite recent past, we were capable of losing to the likes of saints following a memorable result.
      I think we’re over that, and I do expect us to beat saints.
      Just worth remembering, don’t underestimate anyone in this league, and don’t take anything for granted !
      100% effort from everyone, whoever’s selected !

      The games are coming thick and fast. There will be plenty of changes against Chelsea in the league cup but id still make a few for Southampton too. Keep the squad fresh.

      The back five stay the same for me presuming they're all fit and that there's no tiredness there. They've formed a great understanding with each other now and that is the one area on the pitch where you should never swap and change players every other game unless you have to.

      The midfield id like some changes though. It's time for James Milner to come out. He would normally be first name on the team sheet for me but the last two fixtures he's ran his socks off and we should be able to cope with Southampton without him. There's much bigger games coming up where he will be needed. I know he's a machine but give the lad a breather. Keita comes back in.

      Personally I'd take Henderson out too and give Fabinho a go. Southampton at home should be a comfortable fixture to make your full debut. Put him in the DM position and let's have a look at him.

      I'd make two changes to the front three. First is taking salah out and giving shaqiri a start. Shaqiri has looked hungry when he's come on and it's just not quite falling for salah at the moment either. Maybe he could do with sitting a game or two out.

      The second change is taking Daniel out and putting Bobby back in. I'm not sure Danny could cope with two games in a week and the last thing we need right now is our back up striker getting injured. With the league cup coming up it makes sense to start Daniel in that game too.

      I think people resting the likes of Salah for this need their head checked.

      He can rest mid week for the cup game. These players are professional athletes. He can play Saturday at 3pm after a game on a Tuesday. They all can.

      Southampton will not be pushovers. Go with our strongest and give all of them a full week off games until Chelsea 8 days later.

      I would play Salah, only because Southampton gives him a great opportunity at home to find his shooting boots again which will of course give him the confidence moving into Chelsea, Napoli and City.

      If we were 6 points clear we could possibly rest a few but every single game now in the league is so important to us especially at home.
      Play the strongest possible team every league game.

      We are infinitely better equipped this time round as the defeat of PSG illustrated, that is probably the best team in Europe right now.

      Our post cl record should guarantee no complacency from anyone

      Without question. But reading the comments, it's there. I have no doubt Klopp and staff are reminding the playing staff of this and taking the necessary steps to guard against it.

      Yes.. last season I don't think we would have beat PSG. This season we are a lot better. It was a 50/50 game and we won. Some other posters don't quite understand that even though last season we got to the final, if we had this group last season we might not have gotten out of the group.

      Sorry but if PSG is the best team in Europe right now then we will walk the CL, the reality however is that they aren't. I think the major challenge will come from Citeh, Juventus, Barca and Real Madrid

      Hmmmm…... ??? ???

      Wrong thread but they were lucky to nearly come away with a draw, we dominated pretty much the whole game.

      Strange assumption to say "no one quiet understands" except you though.

      Maybe we should look to you for guidance...anyone gots Klopps number?

      Oh I do, very much so, I was jumping around the room like a loon when Bobby scored the winner, I'm just trying to inject some reality here and PSG have a very dangerous strike force but are a fairly average team, amongst the elite.
