      Must Win Game.

      No Shaq and Hendo still not available.

      Might be the same midfield starting as against Arsenal with Keita coming on at some point.
      Or do we put Gini back and start with Lallana.

      Possibly Lovren with VVD and Gomez RB.

      First instinct is that Gini, Milner and Lallana are the midfielders. But after a tough match (following two from which he was praised), Jürgen may want to give Fabinho another runout in order to build confidence, show faith, etc. So Lallana or Fab, with the other two shifting accordingly.

      Its not a must win game at all, but if we win it, which I very much feel that we will, then we'll be in a commanding position in the group.

      I've got a feeling we might see Origi in this game at some point. Shame Shaq is not in the squad, is he injured? Am assuming that to be the case. Studge should start, I hope he does. Be great for Keita to get some minutes off the bench but important not to rush him too soon.

      Shaqiri has been left out of the squad because the club " want to avoid any distractions" that may be caused by Shaqiri's Albanian heritage.

      Shaq has Kosovar Albanian parents and emigrated to Switzerland in 1992. Few tensions between Albania and Serbia has probably prompted the club to leave Xherdan Shaqiri out of the squad. Politics eh...

      No doubt it will be a hostile atmosphere.  as long as we don't do anything stupid in the first 20 mins we should go on to win.

      First 20 mins or so will be about containing them I suspect, and trying to punish them on the break.

      We'll gradually take control, as we did in the first match, then hopefully stick a few past them.

      They're a pretty poor side, but at home they'll be properly fired up, so taking the sting out of them will be essential.

      Yes, their fans were banned from buying tickets for the game at Anfield. Hundreds of them invaded the pitch after they knocked out RB Salzburg. They were fined 30k Euros and had to pay RB Salzburg for any damages. All our fans at the game will have to be careful. Lets hope they all get back safely.

      Won the home game 4-0 and missed a penalty. But will be tougher this time around. Still go for a 2-0 win

      But a win is important as we have a tough PSG away after this game. Secure a win here and the pressure would be off V PSG. Run of winnable Prem games in between: Fulham H,Watford A, Everton H,Burnley A, Bournmouth A. Should of at least stay in the Top 3.

      Going for a 2  0 win, as ever for the Reds. Wonder why the early kick off, is it something to do with time difference ?

      Klopp has probably been told not to take Shaqiri because of his WC t-shirt stunt. He can't really be trusted not to do something controversial.

      Double pivot with Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Lallana as the 10 or a midfield 3 of, Gini, Milner and Lallana, but I don't think it would matter as we would beat them regardless.

      Would like us to play Clyne too with either Lovren/Matip coming in for Gomez/VVD.

      We can get another 3 points and hopefully have the Napoli v PSG match draw we will be in really strong position to qualify for the knockout stage. It could be a tricky game though when Napoli drew there they missed so many chance so hoping to see more clinical finishing, especially if we can get a goal early on to take the crowd out it. Line-up wise I expect after poor game weekend see Gomez pushed out RB with Lovern/Matip playing alongside VvD and Sturridge to start with Firmino up top with one of them dropping back to link the play (more then likely Firmino doing that task)

      -----------------Alisson--------------
      Gomez---Lovern------VvD----Robbo
      -----------Fabinho---Milner---------
      Salah-----------Firmino------Mane
      -----------------Sturridge------------

      What "WC t-shirt stunt"?

      If you mean this


      ..then good on him, but Shaqiri, 27, is an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo, where a Serbian crackdown on the Albanian population ended with Nato military intervention in 1999.

      After scoring for Switzerland against Serbia this summer, he celebrated by making a double-headed eagle gesture, which symbolises the Albanian flag.

      I've been wondering why he isn't getting any game time at all.

      To be fair, after I wondered, I forgot and didn't check.
