      Pre Match : Liverpool v Leicester: 30th Jan, 20.00pm

      The boys should be well rested after the warm weather training in Dubai however we still have a few issues with injuries.

      Looks like Trent won’t be ready and Gomez is still s few weeks away from returning.

      So do we go with Fab at RB and lose his impetus from midfield or trust the youngster Camacho.
      It looks like it will be the pacy Demary Gray so will be interesting who Klopp picks.

      Lovren or Matip to partner VVD.

      Against teams that sit back I don’t think the Henderson Gini combination offers enough going forward so would like to see Keita in there rather than stuck out on the left.

      I'd be inclined to go with Fabinho at RB as he's more experienced than Camacho and then play a midfield trio of Gini, Hendo and Keita/Shaq.
      I'm oddly nervous about this game, but we really should have more than enough to win, I can see it being similar to the Palace game in that we'll concede a few but outscore them.

      They really gave us a game in the reverse fixture and I thought we were rather fortunate to walk away with 3 points. We have improved since then of course and, with Anfield behind us, I’m confident of another win.

      Do we go with Shaq is something I’m unsure about, been boss this season but he’s been poor for the last couple of games. Maybe we need to look at bringing him on from the bench this game for an impact.
      Think the midfield picks itself this game without question - Hendo, Fab and Gini. Keita definitely shouldn’t be starting and the other 3 are playing really well, I think Fab has been just what Hendo has needed in the midfield, been really upping his game when they’ve played together IMO.

      Defence worries me a little, Matip or Lovren to start with Virgil? Can make a case for and against with both players. Both are players that you just simply don’t know where their head is going to be and if they are going to have a good day or a bad one. Pretty much a flip of the coin but given Matip played the last game, all be it horrificly, I think he will get the nod with Lovren slotting in for the next game.

      Hopefully Trent will be back for it.

      I think we are short on the bench. Clyne would have been a good back up option. Also, think another forward off the bench would be good. Sturridge, Origi not doing much either these days or getting the game time so can't rely on them (I know you will point to the Neverton game where Origi won it for us but I think Pickford lost it for them).

      I hope we win.

      He's an impact sub for me is Shaq. He gives us a bench option too. When he starts all of our cards are on the pitch. When he's on the bench we have another hand to play.

      Fabinho at right back, ok. Keita given another go in front of Shaq...possible.Just how the gaffa sees it. Leicester do have pace, Vardy,Gray. I do like Iheanacho. Leicester did well to get him off City. So they are not short of attacking ideas.

      Could be another tight game.I think they will sit deep and wait to pounce and do a smash & grab act. we have to stay 100% alert at the back to avoid this.

      Agree mate. This might be one of those games where we really miss the pace of Joe at the back.

      If Trent is fit, I would play him immediately, every game is a final and move Fabinho to midfield instead of Keita.

      Has to be this. If wijnaldum is back then swap him for Shaqiri (he hasn’t impressed me recently and think is better from the bench)

      Milner will be a massive loss for this one, imo, he would have slotted in nicely at RB or in midfield with Gini & Fab, anyhoo since he's wearing suspenders I'd much prefer a midfield trio of Fab, Hendo & Gini and risk young Camacho at RB, but have Hendo keeping a eye on him,
      Lovren gets the nod for me aside Virgil, just think he is more assured  than Joel and plays much better next to the big fella, the rest are shoe ins, Robbo, Mane Bobby & Mo, Shaq off the bench yields a bigger impact than Naby would,.....

                               Allisson
        Camacho Lovren Virgil Robertson
          Henderson Fabinho Wijnaldom
                     Salah Firmino Mane

      Tricky game, and deffo not easy, however,  we should have too much for them and win in  relative comfort.

      I have a sneaky feeling we won't see Fabinho on Wednesday, so Camacho at right back with Wijnaldum and Hendo in the middle and Shaqiri as the 4th attacker.

      We cannot give them a second to think, we need to be dominate so I would play Fabinho to destroy any threats.

      No doubt, but is Fabinho back in full training? I thought he only returned to light training a couple of days ago? Or was that a few days ago and now he is back in full training?

      If not mistaken, I saw him in the training pictures not like Trent or Gomez.

      Final note on the Clyne Loan. It's not about the right back spot now, I've no doubt Fab can do a good job there. It's about the knock on effect it has now on our midfield. Much rather Clyne at RB and Fab in the middle than at this stage of the season play a misfiring Keita.

      Fab controls our midfield where as Keita puts us out of sync.

      Anyway I'm bored of the argument myself but the point stands.

      I totally agree. He played a brilliant game against Manure. That is in the past now.

      Camacho looks like a winger playing out of position when I've seen him at full back. I'd much rather we played a lad who has played RB for Brazil on several occasions in that spot meself. Fingers crossed Gigi is fit to play, he has been superb this season. I'd be inclined to play Hendo, Gigi and Shaq in midfield for this one.
