      What is wrong with Lovren at the moment, is it the same injury reoccurring or different ones?

      Let's not forget they have a few dangers to our defence up front. David Brooks from my neck of the woods is out I believe but King and Wilson are good players. Usually I'd back us to deal with them but this is not our usual back line any more.

      Trent being back will help a lot, so in that case its just Joe missing and Matip is ok'ish

      The clamour for Lovren being fit is laughable....half on here never want him to start anyway!

      After watching Matip live at the London Stadium - I’ve unfortunately lost faith in him. Felt worried everytime he was on the ball

      Warrington.
      There's a few around the PL/FL scene at the moment. Lingards been the most successful. James Chesters got himself a solid championship career and Evertons Matthew Pennington will never play for them again because he's genuinely awful but he scored in a Merseyside derby in front of The Kop before being torn apart twice by Coutinho seconds later.

      I always like to see how the local lads are doing. Used to play against Lingard. He's always been a cocky little pr**k.

      The Warrington Maradonna his nickname round here ;D.

      Other than that it's quite tricky to pick up because he's playing for Wales but that's from his mother.

      Anyway he's out and if Wilson is out too that's good news for us. Their other forwards Ibe and Mousset haven't pulled up any trees and Solankie shouldn't worry us too much.

      They typically play a 4-4-1-1, and I think we'll match them.

      Salah
      Bobby
      Mane-Fab-Gini-Shaq
      Robbo-Virgil-Lov/Matip-TAA
      Alisson

      Subs: Mig, Matip/Lovren, Moreno, Keita, Hendo, Milner, Lallana, Origi

      Actually, not much confidence in either of Matip or Lovren, so wouldnt mind Fab dropping back and Hendo taking the CM spot.

      We will bounce back tomorrow and return to winning ways, time to ask another question of City - especially when you consider that they have Chelsea the following day.

      It's still very much in our hands, lets make sure we keep it that way.

      Due to recent result this game has become crucial to our chance of winning the league.  The players know this as well, they will have to turn up and get 3 points at all costs to stop our mini blip.  I hope there are plenty of supporters there to welcome the team bus and give the players a show of our support and let them know we are still behind them no matter what.  Anfield needs to be electric on Saturday.

      I think we should give Shaqiri more of a free role (similar to how he has been used for his NT) and have Firmino playing as the 9 instead of having Salah 9, Firmino 10 and Shaqiri on the right and being predictable.

      As for midfield, Wijnaldum would be my choice over Hendo as he is stronger defending the space, and Fabinho is a must because of his distribution.

      We have endured a difficult period but remain joint top behind on goal difference with a game in hand. With the three lads back tomorrow and a home game against Bournemouth I have a feeling we will see a big reaction from the leads and they will want to put the pressure right back on City.

      I think so too, I can feel a big scoreline coming our way in this one and we need it. Get some positive vibes back before we face Manure then Bayern.
      By the way before we meet Manure they face PSG, then Chelsea, that should sap some strength out of them as they won't be able to rest anyone in those games.

      If Henderson is fit, well and rested, he plays.

      No idea why so many people struggle with that.

      Let me put it simple, I am not predicting the line up for tomorrow, nor do I think others are doing that too, we are just voicing our opinions, so it really doesn't matter if Klopp or you think Hendo will always start if he's 100% fit.

      Anyway. I have a feeling Klopp will start Hendo & Wijnaldum midfield tomorrow, but it's not my preferred choice... oh, and not having Hendo in my team doesn't make me a Hendo hater ;)

      I'm starting to feel positive again after the disappointments of last week. Lads seem to have regained focus again, based on their social media at least. I think this is going to be a commanding win for us, and proper message to City that we are not going anywhere.

      I think he struggles with the fact realising that there has been plenty of times when a Hendo has been fit and not started.

      I want to believe the same mate. I really do. We need to come out and score fairly quickly. I also need to see a foot-on-the-gas approach.

      same for Jürgen too . doesn't matter how many ex players say how important Henderson is the same ones know better and they must hate to be proved wrong time after time after time.
      As far as I can see they either have an issue with Jordan or don't understand the role he plays a role Jürgen thinks is pivotal to our tempo

      Serious question, how many times has Klopp played that trio? I actually don't recall seeing that setup. It's either, Wijnaldum & Hendo, Fabinho & Wijnaldum or Fabinho & Hendo with Keita or Milner for that 3rd midfield spot. However, I do  think Klopp sees those 3 as our key midfielders.

      And walton, why do you and Swab get so defensive over Henderson and attack people with the same old sh*t who don't rate him as highly? Maybe you should ponder on why people consider Wijnaldum to be the better player? Don't you think having a diverse midfield is far more balanced than having the same 2 or 3 midfielders that function pretty much the same? I certainly do.

      For me, Hendo is currently first choice in a midfield 3 (preferably as an 8!) , but in a double 6, not for me. Wijnaldum is the better player for me, sorry. But does that make me a hater? Does that make me not understand the role or have an issue with Hendo?

      Wasting your time with some on here Klopp like all astute coaches will pick his midfield combination dependant on the opposition so this Henderson is first choice is only in the imagination of those who go to bed with a Henderson doll.

      Following all the contradictory selections, and the reasons for such above, I wanna ask one question.
      Whatever happened to the gengen press ?
      I realise Klopp has gone a bit more passive and is better structured defensively, well until recently anyway, but I’m sure if we pressed teams a bit more like we did last season, we’d have more ball in better spaces. Doesn’t have to be flat out like we were, but at least put sides under pressure. We seem to give them too much room to operate in when we lose possession.
      Can we change that, and go back to winning the ballot back in the opponents half, instead of last ditch tackles around our box.
      Think we’ve gone too far the other way regarding the lack of press.
