      Would an FA cup win with risk  of injury or tiredness to players which would effect our title charge be worth it? Genuine question
       

      Sure,as someone else said you can pick up an injury in training do you not train? I would think Wolves will be up for the cup,we should be as well.

      Alisson; Trent, Lovren, Phillips, Moreno; Fabinho, Keita, Lallana; Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane.

      Mo, Gini, Robbo and VVD are the main ones that could do with a rest and then rotate the midfield a bit. I think it's a bit stupid to just throw away the FA Cup with 11 changes when you consider a few more dropped points in the league would make City strong favourites for it.

      I can see a few guys getting this game off after busy fixture list over the past month. It will be a oppotunity for the likes of Lallana, Origi, Sturridge, Ketia, Moreno and Migs to get some minutes and try to impress the manager. It is going to be a very difficult match, Wolves shown us a few weeks ago to be a very competitive side at home and vs top 6 sides. Need some of the bench boys to step up and put a good showing in to get our name in the draw for the next round.

      -------------Migs--------------
      Milner----VvD--Phillips--Moreno
      ----Shaqiri---Fabinho----Ketia---
      ----Origi----Sturridge--Lallana

      There will be a few changes but not huge amounts I'm pretty sure.

      Still a few 'first team' squad members who need games like Lallana, Sturridge, Origi etc.

      I think it will be something like this:

      Mignolet

      Camacho   Lovren   Philips   Moreno

      Milner   Keita

      Shaqiri   Sturridge   Lallana

      Origi

      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

      Ming

      Milner
      Phillips
      Lovren
      Moreno

      Fabinho
      Henderson
      Shaqiri

      Lallana
      Sturridge
      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 .

      Lovren and Moreno in the same defence, the stuff of fckin nightmares right there .put the Ming behind that and right there is a recipe for disaster .

      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!

      I’d never normally wish a loss upon us but I think an early exit in the FA Cup will improve our chances in the league.

      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.
