      Pre-Match: Liverpool v Aston Villa - 10/4/2021 3pm

      Next up Villa who are 5 points behind us with a game in hand.   ???

      We gave their kids a good beating in the FA Cup but it's time we deliver some genuine revenge after that ridiculous 7-2 defeat in October.

      Fortunately for the reds Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez aren't playing this time around.  :f_tongueincheek:

      Liverpool have won their last two in the league.  Villa have been in choppy form themselves recently but did get a win in their last game against Fulham.

      About time we put in a decent performance at Anfield.  Hopefully the first of two Anfield wins this coming week.

      Drop Sadio Mane and put Curtis Jones back in midfield.

      MUST play better than Tuesday night !

      3-1 win, Jota hat trick

      Big game this sure there will be changes but would play Keita let him get back out there preferably on the left this time he should be fizzing and ready to show what he can do . Robbo possibly rested as well

      Personally I would drop all the players out of form and give others a chance to perform or get minutes under their belts.

      Allison
      Williams
      Tsimikas
      Davies
      Kabak

      Fabinho
      Milner
      Jones

      Shaqiri
      Jota
      Origi

      And then give some minutes to firmino, keita and ox

             Allison
      TAA Nat Kabak Robbo
      Milner Fabinho Jones
        Salah Bob Jota

      Am thinking we might not win the CL - so top4 is important.
      So strong team imho, see how they go, then think about RM match later.
      Mane needs benching, so Bob in for him.
      Give Milly a run and he'll add bit of leadership too.
      Jones was doing well but when Fab came back into the middle, he's got bumped - would give him a run.
      Then usual back 5, chance to get that game out of the system.

      F***ing Villa and that 7-2 was a big wakeup call - not sure if that'll be in our minds.
      Would LOVE to slap this lot around and score a few - but can't see that happening - so will settle for a deflected goal in off someones arse to shade the 3pts

      Grealish still out which is good for us, hopefully we’ll have a good response after our CL defeat.

      Not sure why but I'm really not feeling confident for this, Villa are just such a tricky team this season.

      Having said that a 7-2 would be nice ;-)

      Should really be winning this considering Grealish won't play but with the way we've been playing at Anfield recently even a shot on target might be too much to ask!

      Return leg being on Wednesday gives us a bit of a rest so shouldn't be too many changes - would like to see Jones come back into the midfield though.

      Don't care how we win, 3 deflected shots would be nice!
      We will go 4th with any kind of win, maybe only for few hours who knows, add to that west ham v Leicester & spuds v manure it's a win win with a win

      Massive game this as we go in pursuit of a top 4 finish, don't think we should make too many changes, the boys who played on Tuesday need to get that game out their system.
      Should definately help us them having Grealish out and we want revenge from that embarrassment earlier in the season.

      Sadio can come on later, if needed.

      I feel we must concentrate on this game against  Aston Villa today. It is about time we found some form at home, hope to turn the corner with a 2  1 win for the Reds.

      As long we do not play a midfield of Fabinho Gini Keita I do believe that was what we played in the 7-2 and then again v Real Madrid

      Which liverpool will we see today? No Grealish for them,  so no excuses not to win. I'm going 2-0 Liverpool.

      Seen milk turn quicker. That fellas stealing a living in the prem.
      attack him and he’ll just keep backing off 5 yards away. That’s what he does.
      2:0 the red men.

      Robbo needs a rest, that’s for sure. Mane looks out of sorts at the moment, so leave him till late to terrorise them, Shaqiri for Salah at some point if all is going well and Gini for Thiago later in the game.

                    Alisson
      Trent - Phillips - Kabak - Tsikimas
               Fabinho - Thiago
            Salah - Jones - Jota
                     Firmino

      Horrible feeling about today after what we saw against Real.

      We all want the win but none of us will be the slightest bit surprised if we draw or lose.

      Sh*te season.

      I haven't written off the CL yet, so keep Jota, Gini and TAA fresh for Wednesday...  be good to see Tsimikas in for Robertson as well:

      Allison
      Milner  Kabak  Phillips  Robertson
      Shaq  Fabinho  Jones
      Salah  Bobby  Mané   

      3-0

      There's more chance of a top4 finish than winning the CL, or even beating Real Madrid when 3-1 down, so the league has to be the priority.

      My TV listings still tell me the game is at 730 EST, so I woke up early on my day off to watch.  :mad:

      Hopefully the team gives us a little  joy today.
