      Pre match : Liverpool v Sevilla : 13th Sept : 19:45

      Time to forget and get that dismal performance at the weekend out of the system.

      So we are back rubbing shoulders and feasting with the big boys of Europe.
      European nights at Anfield are something special to experience and it seems like ages so time to get revenge against these.

      Seems like Klopp has gone with Karius for the CL games.
      I would take TAA out of the firing line and although Gomez is not as good a full back he is defensively more disciplined and gives our dodgy back line more height against set pieces.
      Moreno was not the worst of our defensive issues but I think Robertson looks better defensively, otherwise why have we splashed £8M if he can't replace Moreno!

      Midfield is a real conundrum will Coutinho be brought back and who out of the 3 incumbents deserves to start after the City game?

      Karius
      Gomez
      Matip
      Lovren
      Robertson

      Hendo
      Ox
      Coutinho

      Salah
      Firmino
      Mane

      Don't forget, HScRed1, we're playing at home, so Wijnaldum should play :p

      I'd go same team as City except bring in Gomez and Robertson. Not sure if starting Coutinho is the right way to about it.

      I fully expect us to come bouncing back in this one, but I really do want to see Robertson instead of Moreno for added defensive abilities. I have no problem with having TAA on the right, he had a sh*t game against Citeh, but so did the whole team.
      The only player I want to see dropped is Hendo, replaced by Coutinho, I'd then have Can playing in the "DM" role.

      I think we'll win this, especially as Mane will still be pissed off at the Red card and will have a point to prove.

      Would probably rest Bobby, Gini and Can for this

      Studge
      Mane - Salah
      Milner - Hendo - Chamberlain
      Robertson - Lovren - Matip - Gomez
      Karius

      Subs- Mig, Moreno, Klavan, Grujic, Cou, Solanke, Firmino

      F**k me, so we are defending and hoping we can cling onto a draw then are we? That midfield has f**k all creativity in it, Milner and Hendo should never ever be in the midfield at the same time, plus Sturridge can't do 90 minutes, not on his own. The defence is ok though but I'd have TAA instead of Gomez.

      If we are playing Coutinho in midfield, I would prefer two midfielders. Can, Hendo or Wijnaldum, but with the #8 a more deeper role than usual ish. More protection = more freedom for our attacking players.

      Probably keep Ox on the bench for this. Would be looking for him to be starting in Mane's position when he's suspended. Probably give the defence a shake up and get Coutinho back. Think Klopp's said that Karius is the starting GK for the Champions League as well? (One of the strangest new things I've seen in football that - changing the keeper for CL)

      Karius; Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Robertson; Can, Gini, Coutinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane

      Subs: Migs, Klavan, TAA, Hendo, Woodburn, Sturridge, Ox.

      Based on Jürgen's general approach I'd be surprised if Phil starts - I'd play Gini to start with (Can can warm the bench - did you see what I did there ;)?)

      Comfortable with Gomez but personally probably keep TAA in and give him chance to get back on the horse......

      I get that mate - was more meaning that in the past he's preferred to introduce "injured" players (including Phil in the past I recall) from the bench initially on their rehab.......

      Seems to me whatever else he does think of Phil's antics he does believe he's missed at least 3 wk training.....

      Seems a question, can our attack, score more than our defence let in. Gone for a score draw in the Prediction League. Although a win for the Reds would be even better.

      I hope we f**king turn up against them this time.

      Europa League final was a real tame affair from us and something we should be looking to put right.

      Heavy metal football and a big Anfield atmosphere to blow these cu*ts away from thw first whistle will be the perfect hangover cure from f**king Saturday.

      Mane can run his bollocks off because he has a big rest after this one.

      Time to re-group and put that nightmare of a game on Saturday in the bin.
      Won't be easy but we have to win this game, end of.
      They are a decent side with some quality players but we are better.

      We need that European Anfield roar to scare the sh*t out of them and take every chance we get.

      Maybe, just maybe, this is a game that Coutinho could make the difference in our build up play..dare I say it :f_tongueincheek:

      This sh*t still pisses me off every time I think about it :( Every game has been tailor made for him to create and dominate! Imagine not having Gerrard during our CL winning run? How about Barca without Messi? Real without Modric or Arsenal without Sanchez etc. Argh, he just needs to get back playing so I can move on!!!

                   Mignolet
      TAA, Matip, Lovren, Robertson
                Can, Hendo
      Salah   Coutinho    Mane
                  Firmino

      Sooner we get out on the pitch and have another game to talk about, the better.
      Enough already, if Cou can stand up, start him. If he only last 65mins, OK, sub him off then. But he needs minutes, really want to see him back and playing.
      Mignolet gets the nod, cause imho Karius is the worst keeper I've seen between our sticks in manys a day. Gonna have to be a Lazurus like change in form for me to be happy seeing him line out. Nice hair tho.
      TAA instead of Gomez cause we're at home and would expect to do more going forward than back. Where the heck is Robertson?! Hopefully available for this one, Moreno gives me  :f_bluelight:
      Would leave out Gini cause at home surely we can do with a bit more creativity from the middle (ie. Cou if playing).
      Salah and Mane pick themselves.
      Firmino up top cause as usual no other strikers are getting enough game time to know if they can hit a barn door or not.

      GREAT to be back in Europe  :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Well our build up play on Saturday was bloody awful.No quality quick passes up to the front three whatsoever and as for that free kick Can took! jeez! you can't deny that Coutinho could've quite easily have put that in the top corner with his eyes shut.
      I want him back too you know !

      Oh I agree he was poor, I just don't expect Jürgen to drop him.

      Of course if he dropped everyone who was poor on Saturday, we'd be fielding the U23s or something.
