      Pre-Match: Southampton V Liverpool (11/02/2018 - 16:30)
      Feb 06, 2018 09:51:23 am




      Dissapointing obviusly to draw the way we did Sunday but we could easily have lost if Kane had put the first penalty away. We still find ourselves in 3rd so again we can push on here and cement that place further. Arsenal also travel to Spurs so at least one of them has to drop points also - hopefully both!

      I'd bring Gini back in here. I would have said Ox bar his exceptionally ineffective sub appearance Sunday. Southampton will have some confidence after their big win at the weekend and like Swansea are fighting for their lives.

      Lets not make the same mistake. 0-3 Reds!!!  :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Thank god for this thread. Salvation amongst the controversy.

      F**k the refs', and the FA. We've got 3 points to win away to a side coming back in to form. It's going to be a tough fixture for Van Dijk especially but I believe he will come through it unscathed. But I expect us to pull it off.

      Shame about Lallana's antics who hopefully won't face a suspension for first team duties. Bizzare behaviour.

      Will Danny Ings be available? Heard a rumour he was injured last night.

      He's surprised me the last couple of times I expected some rotation, but I would expect some changes for this one with the Champions League game coming midweek. Of course up front is where you might want to see some players get a break and.....well, you know.

      Was really impressed with our back 4 tbh, we held a damn good line throughout and both pen's should have been offside. I think Lovren and VVD could be our best pairing as they compliment each other. I'd like to see the same 4 defenders and 3 attacking players start.

      There is no way we should be putting that midfield out against a side likely to concede possession and defend deep against us. Southampton are only two points above the drop zone and are fighting for every point they can get, and one against us would go a long way to helping with their survival especially given that Swansea's playing Burnley this weekend, Brighton are playing Stoke, and Newcastle play Man United. A point against us could effectively take them up four places so the last thing I expect them to do is come onto us and attack, so with that in mind, we need far more creativity in the middle of the park than we've seen lately. Swap Wijnaldum for Chamberlain and Lovren for Matip and have Lallana and Gini on the bench allowing two different options for two different scenarios as the game progresses.

      With Porto coming in the days after this one, I think it would make sense to rest Bobby. Gini is another one who doesn't seem to do well on 3-4 days rest, so assuming Klopp wants him in midfield for the Euro match, I would try to get Ox back into playing well for us. It's possible he would give  Moreno a runout here as well, again given the three matches in seven days bit. I will expect TAA to play in the Porto match.

      He might have been needed against a top team like Spurs but even then he didn't really contribute much.

      In a game where we will more than likely be on the front foot he will offer even less.

      Go back to Matip with VVD. Alex back in midield. Cannot afford to drop points. Mane could've sat this one out had Lallana been fit so I'd like to see him get on the scoresheet to pep him up a bit.Needs a lift.

      Is this the game that possibly sparks a revival in Sadio's form? I think it could be. Havent been too impressed when I've watched Southampton this year, I'll be disappointed with anything less than a win.

      I know we've got a mixed record against the Saints in recent years but this is a team that doesn't create and score many goals.

      With Spurs and Arsenal playing each other and at least one of those sides dropping points, it's so important we win this one in our bid for top 4.

      Mane, Firmino and Salah all to score. 1-3 (With Karius in goal, probably no clean sheet, they only need a half decent shot on target and it's a goal  :roll: )

      Come on the reds - don't let me down. Get that confidence high going into Porto.

      Really?? You predicted the bottom team in the league would beat us at home in the FA Cup, how??? That was a massive, huge upset.
