      Don't get the calls for Fabinho to start. On what basis would you start him away at PSG after what he has shown so far? "He knows PSG because he played in the French league" isn't exactly a good argument. Knowing how to play in our system is far more important than knowing the opposition. He hasn't looked good in that "sole #6" role yet and that's the system we're going to play tonight.

      Personally I'm worried with that line up.

      I would back that midfield 3 at home against anyone but away from home in a tough European leg I'm not confident they can hold onto the ball long enough when the pressure comes on.

      Hope I'm proved wrong.

      We don't really need to hold on to the ball if we're being pressured. As long as the likes of Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner are able to release the front three quick enough when we do regain possession, which they're more than capable of, we'll cause PSG plenty of trouble.

      As Londonred mentioned, Wijnaldum is a master at keeping possession and holding on to the ball. Hopefully, he'll have enough options around him to retain possession.

      All we need to do is make sure we keep our shape, as we've been doing very well so far this season, stay concentrated and don't allow them to get too close to our box.

      The positive about this starting eleven is that we have plenty of options on the bench to change shape, tactics and to put players on who are better at retaining possession under pressure when we do take the lead, (Keita, Shaqiri) than Milner and Henderson.

      Really looking forward to this game.

      Look at PSG's line up, only 1 proper midfielder yet again. Very surprised Rabiot has been left out. Our industrial midfield might give them some serious problems if they play like how they did at home.

      Rabiot had a dustup with Tuechel.

      Tuechel...the man that's only won like 1 of his last 13 games against Jürgen.

      I fancy us to drive this thing home tonight. That defense is crap, that midfield is crap...they are going to rely on their two expensive superstars while we are going to rely on our entire TEAM.

      If we come out flat it will be rough, but if we come out flying, we'll put this away in short order I think.

      A draw is as bad as a defeat isn’t it? Assuming Napoli and PSG beat Red Star, we still need to beat Napoli by more than a goal if we draw tonight.

      We're going to win mate.

      Not sure why Gomez is out of position. TAA is good enough. Shuffling players around isn't productive and what's with the dreaded Milner and Henderson combo? Van Dijk has a partnership with Gomez and I wouldn't have disturbed that. Klopp's line up isn't what I'd have picked, but he's the manager and I'll get behind the 11 out there. Something tells me there will be changes at HT though.

      Any win will do on the final day if we draw tonight as we'd go to 10 points and Napoli would have 9 (presuming they win tonight).

      Next question;

      Why am I stupid? :D

      Just walked in to work. Gonna be doing absolutely f**k all so I can focus on this.

      Pretty predictable team that’s been named. It’s worked before and can work again.


      Oh aye. Still going 2-1 to the good guys.

      As much as I rate Verratti, I think it's crazy to go into a big game as the only proper midfielder, and he isn't even a combative one too.

      I think we can take them!!

      Thats a pretty conservative looking team, dont expect much from midfield might be  case of keeping it tight and try and hit them on the break.

      Same midfield that battered them in the first game!

      100% agree - zero basis for starting Fab ahead of that 3.......yet.

      He’ll be a monster for us no doubt but I think it’s the right team for this game

      My worry is the last 4 European away games have been lost with a flat midfield.

      But we are a bit more assured on the back foot than last season. Not that this line up is a negative line up. But panic does not set in the way it has over the past number of seasons. Keita hasn't fully settled, Shaq is a front foot attacking midfielder so it's cautious but we can still win.

      Lovren concerns me and so does the midfield. Hendo, Gini and Milner will either put in a master display like when it matters most in this competition, when all paired together. Or they will be as uncreative and dull as they are together in the league more often than not. Would have preferred to have Fab in there somewhere.

      Come on Reds!!!

      I'd be happy for a draw with that line up. It's going to be very hard to get the ball forward. Long balls and counter attacks from the full backs are our best hope today.

      Think that Lovren has been pretty solid since the World Cup. think you are right with TAA, but could be more to do with giving on field option for a back three if need be and allowing Robbo to play further up field
