      Fully agree. folks here are in for a shock if they think Jürgen is going to rotate more than a few positions for this.
      Have a look at the team that played in our last cup game mate.

      No Alisson
      No VVD
      No Gomez
      No Trent
      No Robertson
      No Wijnaldum
      Firmino sub
      Salah sub

      That was against Chelsea.

      Jürgen isn’t stupid and knows these guys are only human and have had a very busy December. Would be surprised if there is any less than 7 changes.

      Forgot about Milner at RB. That'll probably be right but I think Keita will play.

      I expect he will as well and was supposed to put him in instead of Henderson

      We can rotate and still have a good midfield but in attack and defence we have fewer options so I think we'll need to play some regulars and then sub at half time. We have to take this game seriously as Wolves will surely go for this.

      You’d expect Studge, Keita, Lallana and Shaqiri to play. Not sure he can all of the back four but I would deffo give Robbo the afternoon off. I’d like to see young Curtis Jones get some involvement because he was really impressive during pre season

      Fabinho
      Henderson
      Shaqiri

      Origi

      What do you think about swapping Lallana and Shaqiri in this lineup? I still like Shaq better as a wide forward, and I like Lalllana better as an attacking midfielder particularly for his energy in the press (and he isn't really a potent finisher).

      There should be some level of rotation, but with a lighter load in January no need to do too many changes. Really cannot afford a loss here and have to deal with the crap from the media about losing 2 games in a row and panic alarms going off everywhere.

      Why people are advocating playing migs in goal baffles me , he has proved time and again to be sub standard , these won’t be pushovers , so it will take a very decent team to get the result not too many changes for me ,
      Saying that it wouldn’t shock me if Klopp does make wholesale changes also wouldn’t surprise me if he played migs , it would though disappoint me .

      Don’t think Migs is anyone’s ideal choice to play, think it’s just a case that it seems very likely that he will play this game to give Alisson a bit of a rest.
      I’d love it if he doesn’t play though, boosts our chances straight away.

      I suspect our side will be rotated considerably more than Wolves so there is a very real possibility we’re looking at another early FA Cup exit because they are a good side. Hopefully they rest a good few as well and the likes of Zkeita, Shaqiri and Studge can fire us through.

      Simply because it’s a risk that isn’t necessary.

      League and Champs League are our priorities - and we CAN win them both so that’s plenty of games.

      I just don’t think there’s any more need to play Allison than Robbo, VVD etc.

      So do we leave our back up keeper with zero game time then, that's very risky in case we ever do need to call upon him in a big game!

      Funny one this . Don't want to lose again as I feel this could impact on Brighton game need to get back to winning ways asap. Obviously there will be changes but he basically doesn't need to play the Midfield that will play against Brighton. Robbo and Trent rested from back 4 . Maybe rest Salah and Bobby or on bench keep Mane in as he missed a game or two prior to Christmas

      Advocates for experimenting during actual games, this is the game. I'm not for experimenting, and I believe in nailing it on the actual game.

      But if we need to validate who needs to leave, then this is the match. Give the players a job and a role to nail. If they can't even do a proper one or show vulnerabilities and mistakes, they need to go. How then can we judge if the fringe players don't play.

      Weather or not Jürgen takes the FA cup seriously, (hope he does)I think we field our strongest side snd go for the win !
      We know what wolves are capable of, and they ain’t gonna win the Prem, so this will be a huge game for them, we’ve gotta match them and win it.
      Two losses on the trot now, won’t do us any good mentallly.
      Must win game for me, for other reasons than it being the FA cup.
      3:1 to us I hope.

      We've been crying out for silverware for f**k knows how long, as a club we have entered the FA cup competition,  if you enter a competition i would assume that our intention would be to f***in win it, it wouldn't look too professional if we played a X1 with too many second string players that would seriously reduce our chances of progressing,
      A few seasons back we struggled to field a side entirely of first teamers when you needed to rest regular starters, its not the case anymore,  we have the sqaud numbers now that allows several changes without dipping into the ressies.

                              Mignolet
             Camacho Lovren Virgil Moreno
                       Fabinho    Hendo
                  Lallana   Shaqiri   Keita
                              Sturridge

      Subs; Alisson Milner Wijnaldom Mane
                  Bobby Mo Origi

      I want us to go the whole f***in hog, i think we need to win something just to get the monkey off our backs, to taste victory and have something to celebrate,

      The FA cup has lost its prestige but only cos its not on f***in sky tv, and the bbc is Sh*te, nevertheless we should as a club be going all out to win it.

      SO LET'S FUCKIN DO IT !

      Prefer Migs to play. After last game some comedy will be good and I don't really care about FA cup, rather drop out early because going deep into the tournament could cost us the league. Imagine a bad injury in FA cup to a key player? No thanks. Challenges in this cup are often horrendous. League and CL should be our focus, we don't have a squad capable of a triple right now, just enough depth for two things. That said, good chance to see fridge players.. Origi, Lallana, Sturridge etc... any wins a bonus.

      What happened to the FA-Cup? It's the oldest football competition in the world and we treat it like the League-Cup?  ??? ??? ??? Of course we gonna still rotate: I wanna see Mignolet, Moreno, Keita, Fabinho, Shaq, Lallana and Sturridge. Especially Keita needs some good experiences to get going. Tough game though, the Wolves are for real.

      here's evidence Klopp isn't taking FA cup serious. It's a stupid competition. Spurs get Tranmere and we get Wolves? Every year we get lumbered with PL teams a first match. It's not the magic of the FA cup, it's either sh*t luck or corruption. Need seeds in this cup.

      Migs starting against Wolves.

      https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/332918-klopp-mignolet-liverpool-wolves-team-selection

      Quote
      Simon Mignolet will start Liverpool's FA Cup third-round tie with Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Jürgen Klopp also planning to make other changes to his team.

      Mignolet has made just one appearance so far this season, with Alisson Becker having assumed the mantle of the Reds' first-choice goalkeeper since his summer transfer from AS Roma.

      But Klopp confirmed on Friday that the Belgium international will be selected as one of a number of alterations to his line-up at Molineux on Monday.

      "He will play, of course," the boss told his pre-match press conference.

      "Yes, we have to [make changes]. That’s clear. We came through the intense period now somehow OK, but of course we have to make changes. How many I don’t know, but we have to. There is no chance for anything else."

      Having announced his intention to start Mignolet, Klopp went on to speak in glowing terms about the 30-year-old's quality as well as his daily attitude and application at Melwood.

      The manager continued: "Simon, I could write a book about all the good things I could say about him.

      "I am not sure if you saw it in the Man City game, in the warm up, he had seven, eight incredible saves. I was not sure if I am happy about that - I thought ‘Come on, let them gain a bit of confidence!’, but he caught them from everywhere and that’s how he is. He is a fantastic professional and did brilliantly so far.

      "Like all the boys who don’t play constantly week in and week out, they keep the level really high in training. Our ‘A versus B’ matches are unbelievable high quality.

      "Si is a Premier League goalkeeper, everybody knows that, so I am really happy for him that he can have that game and it will be a difficult game on top [which is] maybe good for a goalie. He will have, I’m pretty sure, the opportunity to show up a few times."

      I 100% agree Ribapuru, the FA Cup really does need some seeding, would make it much more interesting if it was set up like a seeded competition from the 3rd round, it is bullshit that one top team gets some non league team whilst another gets a tough same league team
