      Jürgen loves to find a way to get Milner in the side for the big games.

      I was thinking he might do this but still surprised a little that he has.

      Not surprised he has got him in but at RB ?

      We already know that the second Milner gets beat by a fast wide player that constantly beats fullbacks there will be people panicking haha

      I half expected Klopp to find a place for Milner but was wondering whether he'd do it in midfield. A bit surprised he's done it at right back but I really trust James to deliver

      He's a proper pro.
      He proved me wrong big time during his time here, and I'm happy to eat the humble pie.
      I thought he was a stop gap player, but instead he's a big part of the squad.
      Good on him.

      Will Hendo sit deep or let Fab sit in. Hendo has the strength to get up and down but I'd like him to release it a bit earlier, pick up on the runs of salah and Mane.

      Same here mate.

      Thought it might be midfield, and a bit surprised that he is (probably) at right back.
      Good player, bags of experience and that might be the key to him getting the nod over TAA, who has understandably, looked a bit rusty.

      I'm pretty sure it'll be RB but the reaction on Twitter if he put him in midfield and Fabinho RB would be priceless.

      If we play well and they play well, we will beat them.

      This isn't Mourhino, this is OGS and OGS with a team that's top of the form league. Point being, I fully expect their team to come at us and that is going to play right into our hands.

      Klopp has never won at OT so time to put that right.

      Was Trent that bad midweek?

      Milner v Rashford is a big worry.

      Gini and Henderson have to show they can get the ball to the front 3.

      There's the odd nugget of gold in there, but f**king hell, the sh*t you have to wade through to find them is unreal.

      Gary Gillespie just talking about how Jordan Henderson's abilities are somewhat thwarted in the Role Jürgen has him playing.
      He thinks it will be Gini pressing further up cant really argue with that.
      I think our team has fantastic balance and a potent strike force . Now would be a great time to send City a message that we are not going anywhere.

      They'll probably rotate it, with Henderson starting as the "sitter".

      That rotation will be one of the keys to pulling utd out of shape.

      Only reason I can think of for not having TAA is because maybe he is not 100%?

      Just noticed no Matic! Will be a very interesting midfield battle. Also, is this the first time we're gonna see a Hendo, Wijnaldum and Fabinho midfield this season? I sure as hell don't remember Klopp starting that midfield.

      TAA being sropped is likely to be a combination of fitness and experience - he didn't cope well at OT last season and we can't afford to lose this game … Milner won't let us down

      Forget his age.
      Milner is pretty well rested and is still one of the fittest players around.
      All he does is train, and tweet about how boring he is  :laugh:

      I would imagine Fab and Hendo sitting deeper with Gini buzzing around in front.

      At least it’s not the Milner, Hendo, Gini combo!

      Yeah,Apparently Trent not quite up to speed just yet,so as a few posters have pointed out it’s a fitness issue more than anything ,as for Milner if he goes RB got every faith in him can’t think of many games that James has let us down,yeah rashford is pacey but we’ve got a minge bag defence.

      Think we've lost 7 of the last 9 at Old Trafford and our last win was 2014.

      I think we'll win if we play close to our best but those saying they're 'sh*t and very beatable' are well off the mark.

      not after Milner has made his first tackle on him on the half way line. Milner knows exactly how not to get caught out and of course Rashford is quicker but James Milner is no mug

      If Martial was playing, he along with Rashford gives them great pace. Think with Mata in they will build slightly slower. I'm not worried about Milner. They should be worries about the pace we have. The balance has swung our way. Looking for a good performance. No excuses for not stepping up today.

      It’s not often I don’t agree with Klopp’s decisions but I feel going with Milly instead of Trent is going to be a big mistake.

      Hope I’m wrong.

      Actually like dropping Trent in favor of Milner. Trents last game was nothing to write home about and Miller’s experience in big games could prove to invaluable today.

      FUCKIN BUZZIN !!!!

      Fully confident and think we will tear these kunts a new one, get on our game with a quick tempo and we will win, they are missing key players, players that would have made it much more difficult for us, just imagine going into this without Fabinho & Gini, that's the level of player their missing, so a massive blow for them, so we need to take advantage, 

      Without the ball, get in their faces, restrict space and hit them on the break at every opportunity,  and be CLINICAL!!

      Love to see us doing them by 3 or 4,  but id settle for a scrappy 0-1 .

      To be fair it was his first game back from an injury, excluding a cameo vs Bournemouth.
