      OK we play Henderson then, isn't it lovely to finally have some cover.

      Exactly, good depth.

      Hope he is match fit and sharp enough, if not, then Wijnaldum 6 with Lallana and Milner in midfield?

      I think if Fabinho is injured, we will go with Milner, Keita & Gini, as Hendo won't be sharp enough to start IMO.

      I wouldn't play Hendo or Fabinho.

      I'd either go:

             Gini
       Milly   Keita

      or

             Gini
      Shaqiri Keita

      Klopp said scan was clear for Fabinho, but when he returned, he felt ill, so they sent him home and will see how he feels later today. Doesn't look like Klopp will risk Hendo , so we may see Keita, Milner or Wijnaldum in midfield!

      Keita seemed to sit deeper, with Gini making the overlapping runs in the last couple of games.
      Wouldn't mind a mid 3 of:

                           Keita

             Shakiri                 Gini

      Pretty nasty wound that Milner got last week.  Not sure he could subconsciously give 100% with 15 stitches in his face?

      Think Shaqiri might start.

      Ah yeah, maybe Shaqiri or Fabinho (if he trains today) instead of Milner.

      Glad to see Fabinho is OK re injury, so hoping he can make his debut. Gini is likely to start and Milner may still have an issue just based on where those stitches are. There will be some time frame order from Docs over when he can head a ball again, not sure if Sunday is too soon.

      This is probably an unpopular view but I think we are mainly going to see Shaquiri used as a sub this season. He will be introduced in every single game, like, but I think he mainly comes on for a 20-30 minute burst of energy and I can see where he will be very effective in that role.

      I think early on I could see that where we are playing once a week but when League Cup/Champions League start and we have times we are playing 3 games in 10 days that is where you will see him rotated in the starting XI but realistically if he going to crack starting XI on regular basis it is going to have to be in that AM role in the mid-field.

      As for the match it is a shame for Gomez/Matip to have knocks as this is their opportunity early to make a claim for a starting role besides VvD and really looking forward to seeing Ketia being a driving force in the middle of the park. I expect open match which suits us pretty good and if the finishing is on point no reason why shouldn't have a easy 3 points.

      Can't wait for this now. 

      Driving up tomorrow morning; doing the Anfield tour in the afternoon as my son hasn't done that since he was a kid.  Comedy club & a few beers in the night, then the match Sunday!  Few beers after, watching the City game.

      Just watched two teams who didn't look nearly as sharp as we did in the final two friendlies.
      I suspect this is much if not all the rest of the Premier League. We really need to take advantage of this and achieve some separation from the pack in these first weeks of the season.

      If we are going to win the league, it’s ganes like these that we should boss easily. So for that reason I expect we are going to make short work of them.

      Important we get off to a winning start, especially after the mancs winning tonight.

      Think it'll be a tough game this. They have a good manager now with some good signings, they must be confident.

      But it's West Ham at home. We should breeze this.

      Alisson

      Trent
      Van dijk
      Gomez
      Robbo

      Gini 6
      Keita 8
      Lallana 10

      Usual front three.

      Shaqiri, sturridge and Milner to get plenty of game time from the bench.

      Come on reds. Smash these.
