      In which case I would prefer Fab as the RB bearing in mind he knows how to play the position and more importantly his height will be a bonus against Utd with their long punts cross field.

      Not sure Fabinho can get up and down like Milner but good point about the aerial assault  we will face at some point. Suppose it comes down to who he wants in midfield more personally think Milner will play at FB and Fab to start in Midfield

      Trent has been ruled out today as well.

      Still plenty of options though, I’d go with:

      Alisson

      Milner
      Lovren
      Van Dijk
      Robertson

      Wijnaldum
      Henderson (c)
      Keita

      Salah
      Firmino
      Mane

      Subs:

      Mignolet
      Clyne
      Moreno
      Fabinho
      Shaqiri
      Sturridge
      Origi

      3-0 to us ⚽️

      If he can do it for Brazil I’m sure he can do it for LFC.

      Sounds like Trent is not going to make it. 

      Clyne has been in full training for 4 days. Klopp not sure if he's ready for 90 minutes.

      If Clyne did not start this game it's crazy to put him in the substitutions.  I'd like Camacho in instead.

      Still confident we will get three points,  COYR :scarf:

      Has to be Milner surely if TAA out. Even if in full training, don't think Clyne's played enough minutes.

      Except Klopp may prefer the same midfield three he started vs. Napoli, which would make the choice between Fab and Clyne at right back.

      Oh I hope not, it worked against Napoli but I still don't like that trio in midfield, we need to be much more positive in our midfield against Manure.

      Agreed; they'll come to stifle & hope to catch us on the break.  We need drive & momentum from the middle of the park.  Don't think Klopp trusts Shaq to start the bigger games, so think Keita should start with Gini & Milly/Fab. 

      We're due to do a number on these; let's not slip up against them again!!

      I'm guessing Clyne will feature against Wolves, United might be a game early.

      Has to be Milner at RB, he has a great engine, he will offer a threat going forwards and he's a tenacious bugger. Fabinho is too slow on the turn for my liking and the thought him one on one with Rashford or Martial is not a good one. Hopefully Lovren is fit to slot in alongside VVD and we should be alright. I think Keita will start and it wouldn't surprise me if Shaq does too. I never feel confident about this game no matter the form of the two sides. It's about time Klopp put one over Mourinho and his ale house game spoiling tactics so hopefully this Sunday is the day. They have struggled at the back this season so hopefully the spoiler tactics will not be enough for them. Just need to keep an eye on Rashford because he has been superb in recent weeks, I went to St Marys for their game with SAints the pother week and he was different class (and the only bit of class) for them.

      Heart says we will win but my head says 0-0 bore draw.

      I think we'll win 4-1. I'll put 3-0 as prediction on the league though, since I do that every game.

      Tuesday wasn't positive?? Won possession and went forward most of the match.

      It worked on Tuesday but most times that trio simply doesn't work, especially if teams come to park the bus.

      If Milner was out, Fab would be my choice at RB, but not while Milner fit.  Would prefer to start with Keita anyway on Sun.
      But Jürgen does like Hendo/Milner/Gini for the big games, so we'll see...

      Milner certainly a decent choice at RB, a reliable player, who will always do the job required.

      I am interested to see Klopp selection for the middle of the park with be, after such a big game mid-week you would have to think there will be one or two changes but who comes in and out will be interesting, As far as RB you would have to go Milner simply because of quality of opponent we are face, if Clyne is fit like Klopp has been saying I could see him getting run out vs Wolves/Newcastle while Trent is out. If we can get a goal early I believe we will win but this is going to be a tough match as Jose knows how to set his side up vs Klopp.

      If I was going to line-up I would say you will see this

      ------------Alisson----------------
      Milner--Lovern----VvD----Robbo
      -----Ketia---Hendo----Gini-------
      Salah-------Firmino-------Mane--

      If he can do it for Brazil I’m sure he can do it for LFC.

      If he was doing it that well for Brazil do you not think he would RB for us even when TAA playing he plays Gomez
