Lovren in; Gomez out
I'd do that too, but he's a slight doubt for this game according to physioroom. What about Nathaniel Phillips? I heard he was good in pre season. It would be good to rest Gomez and VVD.
Wanted to put a team up but Curtis Jones is not on the player list. Origi is not fit for this match is my understanding, so I expect Shaquiri in the front and I would like Curtis Jones at attacking midfield. Otherwise Clint's team is the one I expect.I definitely would like to see Milner and Gini left out for the sake of the upcoming matches. It may be that Henderson plays with Fab and Keita both pushed up a bit.
NB: Team no longer availableStill want to win this and keep the momentum going so hopefully we don’t change things too drastically, although some players do need rested. Wouldn’t change the keeper myself but imagine Klopp will give Migs a shot.
Not a bad line up. I still think Firmino should be rested.
Mignolet; Clyne, Phillips, Matip, Moreno; Fabinho, Jones, Keita; Shaqiri, Sturridge, Solanke.Expect Chelsea will make changes as well so should be an even game.
Solanke and Sturridge don't go together.
I thought we needed at least one of the three in there. Who would you have in his place mate?
Markovic deserves a chance, he's not going to get it in another compeition.
Not sure i'd have the likes of Solanke, Markovic or Phillips in my line-ups. I'm all for using the squad but it would also be nice to progress as well given we haven't won anything for nigh on a decade. My line-up would be. MignoletClyne Matip Gomez Moreno Fabinho Keita Milner Shakiri Studge Jones I'd have Mane, Salah and Bobby on the bench.
I agree with this, we need to have a mix in the team and not rest everybody. I'd actually be tempted to play Henderson as well, just to anchor the midfield and rest Milner.
I also think Markovic should start just to give him one last chance. I'd also go with Solanke up front as I think starting Sturridge would be a big risk. It's not that I don't like Sturridge but I think Danny is now an impact sub and starting too many games would be detrimental to his fitness. He's still made of glass and I think he would be better served by just coming off the bench. With his level of fitness improved so far, he is a very important player on the bench to come on and nick a goal. Alisson Clyne Lovren Matip Moreno Hendo Fabinho KeitaShaqiri Solanke Markovic
