      Am expecting Joel Matip to get a start this Wednesday.

      Think that it will look more like this

                                                           Alisson
                                              Clyne Loren Matip Moreno
                                                          Fabinho.   
                                            .           Gini   Milner      .   
                                              Salah     Sturridge   Shaqiri

      I wouldn't risk Milner too, he felt something and had to come off, didn't he?

      I don't remember him limping off with injury but I wouldn't be surprised him being on the bench given his quick recovery from knock he picked up vs Citeh.

      Hendo is getting injury prone. New 5 year contract is ridiculous,  In a couple of years he'll be playing around 25 games a season. As for tomorrow it's going to have to be Fabinho, Gini and Shaqiri.

      Klopp mentioned it post match interview, said it was something to do with his hamstring.

      nah, even those of us who don't rate him in our first 11 value having squad depth. We need players who can play against Cardiff etc.. now we need to use resources we could have saved for tougher games.

      Count me in. Hendo's injury is the perfect opportunity for Shaq to show Klopp and the world that he's our new #10, the successor of Coutinho, the general that links our defense to our offense.

      Alisson
      TAA-Gomez-VVD-Robbo
      Shaq Wji Milner
      Salah Mané Bobby

      This is what I believe is our best possible team right now. Only this team can win us the PL and CL. (Keita for Wji if he's fit and got more time to adjust.) We need to play with this team so players get familiar.

      A few injuries and we should be able to rest a few more tomorrow. So a bit of a changed team tomorrow I think really.

      It was a risk at the weekend and its a risk again here but once more the value of getting rest into a few players legs and minutes into a few playwrs more could be priceless.

      I'm happy to sacrafice a 5-0 easy win for a 2-0 struggle.

      Mane and Firmino can start but Salah on the bench for me. Time for Joe Gomez to sit one out i feel too. Trent back in at right back and Fabinho into midfield.

      We have a decent squad who should have more than enough for these.

                                                          Fabinho.   
                                            .           Gini   Milner      .   
                                              Salah     Sturridge   Shaqiri

      Trent rather than Clyne. Sturridge you wouldn't to start twice in 72 hours and I suspect Mane and Bobby will both be back in Wednesday night so that leaves Shaq out, unless he plays attacking midfield in place of Milner.

      I don't think this game is going to be like Maribor in terms of chances created, but I hope it's not like Man City, either.

      I thought that was Gini who Klopp said picked up knock during the game on the weekend, I guess either way every CM expect for Fabinho is carrying a knock.

      2:12 - 2:30 where he mentions Wijnaldum getting stood on the achilles during the match and Milner feeling something again (I assume it's the hamstring :().

      Anyway, looks like Fabinho and Wijnaldum will be our only fit midfielders going into the next game.

      So, Hendo and Keita definitely out.  I suspect VVD won't play to give his ribs a chance to heal a bit.  Its probably too much too soon for Lallana to start this game.  Same can be said for Studge, and I'd also expect Bobby to be brought back into the 11.  So, something like:

      Alisson
      TAA -- Matip -- Lovren -- Robbo
      Fabinho -- Gini
      Shaq
      Salah -- Bobby -- Mane

      i wonder what will happen if PSG goal difference affects position and red star are found guilty....

      The E.U.F.A. officials will probably run for cover,they usually do when things affect Liverpool Football Club.

      Not enjoy exactly but it does force Klopp's hand into trying some other, more creative, options.

      Match day whohooooo. I have gone for lots of goals and wins in my predictions so far maybe I need to change and go for a 1-0 win.
      If there is evidence of irregular betting then the result of the PSG game is surely in doubt and they could and should be banned.

      I've gone for a 5-0 thumping win to us, we simply have to click into gear sooner rather than later.

      If we can't play Moreno against Red Star then I'm not sure who we can play him against.

      We can't play Moreno. Full stop. The man is a liability.

      Would have been nice to have Gruijic as an option to Milner, Henderson & Co this season (not necessarily against these guys). Someone who was looking to go forward (in the Keita mould) & not sideways/backwards. Unfortunately, I think he never got the deserved run of games to see what he is made of. Perhaps, he wasn't as good as we all thought he could be but still should have been given extended run last year.

      Never mind. My prediction is 2-0 to us. Perhaps, this is the game where it all clicks for the season ahead.

      I just wonder why there has been a lack of goals, from the forwards, who had such a good strike rate last season. Tonight & Saturday's home games against Cardiff may see a change in fortunes, for the Red men.
