      Indeed mate. As always it will depend on how the international boys feel and what fitness staff advise.

      But I think if there was ever a game, to rotate a few players its this one, but he also might just go strong, get game won, then make early subs 2nd half.

      People sometimes forget that rotation can be used to allow first choice selection for games.FOLLOWING the match in question. We will want the top players for Napoli and Chelsea. Playing twice in 4-5 days much preferred to thrice in 7-8 days.

      24 hours from now we'll be watching The Reds and will know what Jürgen decided

      Adrián
      Alexander-Arnold
      Matip
      van Dijk
      Robertson
      Mane
      Firmino
      Salah
      Wijnaldum
      Henderson
      Shaqiri


      Salah, Mane, Shaqiri, Milner and Matip did not play any game during this break plus Origi did not play during his international period.

      I won't be home for this but I will record it and see it as 'live' because I won't know the score!

      Isn't Shaqiri pretty much considered as a front three player these days?

      I would play him behind them.

      Hopefully all goes well and we are 3 up at the break and can take off the likes of Bobby around the hour mark with the game all but 100% secured.

      Time to relieve the Toon army of any delusion of their season ahead with balloon head at the helm.

      Can’t think of a easier win all season at home.

      Not sure Shaqiri is defenders minded enough to play there. May leave a big hole in transition. Prefer ox in there myself.

      On paper yes. But do you think they won’t be fired up for this ?

      Match ball head will likely go 5-4-1 or 4-5-1 and route 1.
      We will need an early break through to lift the pressure. Could be a right old battle.
      I’ve gone for 3:1 but after internationals, and early ko who knows how easy/difficult it can be.
      Always worry about these ‘nailed on’ victories !
      Working all weekend but will have to sneak down the boozer for a couple of hours. Come on you RED MEN !

      At long last, the Internationals have finished.. seemed like months ago we played Burnely :f_steam:

      1-0, 2-1, 2-0, I don't care... So long as we get those precious 3 points to keep us ahead of the pack..
      I'm very much looking forward to seeing that pr**k Steve Bruce's moaning geordie face after his defeat.

      C'Mon you Reds !!! :kop5cf8koxp6:

      No doubt Toon will come equipped with the double decker and park it across the pen box, and hope the can latch onto a long haul missile hoofed from the rear, cos that's their only hope of any sort of reward from this match,

      We are gearing towards a level of football even higher than that of last season,  a level most can only dream of,
      Newcastle are simply our next victims and although not easy I still believe we will win this with relative comfort,  psychologically their players know deep down they won't be winning this game, whereas our lads are brimming with confidence,  unbeaten in 13 matches, unbeaten for over two and a half years at fortress Anfield, backed by a fantastic home crowd, no brainer for me....

                               Adrian
               Trent Matip VvD Robertson
                                Fabinho
                    Henderson     Oxlade
                  Salah       Firmino      Mane

      Can't see anything other than a convincing victory for the Redmen.

      4- 0

      Would have thought we might see Milner in a game like today.  If not, then I wonder how many games he's actually going to get a start in this season.

      Milner is a utility sub these days, he really shouldn't be starting many games.
