      I see no other way of us winning the league bar we win all remaining six games.

      If we draw even once we need City to drop points in two games and I just don't see it.

      Friday night away under lights and they will be up for it. I'd go with:








      Lack of creation in that X1 PG91, imo, throw Lallana in there for extra boo's as well as a boost in attack would give us more options, cant afford to be conservative against lower league sides, home or away?

      I just hope we play a more creative midfield. That means not playing Fab and Hendo in the same side, that means playing either of Keita, Lallana or Shaq in the midfield three or playing Salah ahead of Firmino as per the team put up near the top of this thread. Hopefully Saints will try and press us and leave some space in behind. I fancy us to win this one 2-1.

      Fabinho and Hendo together is fine as long as they have an attacking-minded midfielder with them.

      Fab, Hendo and Keita would be great. Gini has been off the boil a little lately and wouldn't mind if he missed this one - especially being away from home which makes it infinitely more likely he won't perform.

      Apart from that, I think maybe Gomez could come in for Matip as the only other possible change. The rest is straightforward.

      I'm Milner'ed out in midfield. He should be a late sub to kill off a game but nowhere near the starting lineup.

      As the poster above me mentioned, i'd also go with Fab / Hendo / Keita. The rest of the team we already know.

      cant wait to see the lads that got us to the CL final, this years qtr final and top of the league again on Friday ..is that how its done?
      I think Jürgen will unleash the beast Fab and Lallana for this I think its time to take the brakes off and destroy teams.
      Another win is really going to piss off City and Friday is a good time to play as it gives us extra time to prepare for the CL. Anyone remember Friday night football actually starting on ITV with Brain Moore who actually loved the Reds.

      Milner does a superb job covering behind Robertson, that's one of the reasons he plays.
      Watch how he tucks in behind when Robertson bombs forwards, then supports him when the opposition is pushed back.
      Keita should be doing it, but for whatever reason isn't quite there yet.
      Wijnaldum does it on the right behind TAA, in a slightly different way.

      That said, we shouldn't need Milner to provide that extra cover against Southampton.

      Agree with the mid of Fab, Hendo and Llallana for this one, the rest picks itself.

      Did Milner do a superb job against Spurs second half, how about Gini or Hendo, how many chances did they create, how well did they cover the defence?

      I too think Lallana will start. Fab is a shoe in too.

      I cant remember friday night footi, I was either too young, or in the pub, which means it was a blur. ;D.

      Something tells me a Mo Salah hat trick is on the cards as part of a 5-0 thrashing.
      But then I sit up straight and realise that it's a nervy run in ahead and these last few games are decided by one or two goals.

      We have the firepower and technical brilliance to smash this lot into next week but if we can't get off to a good start and allow the nerves to kick in, giving away stray passes and dodgy footwork from our goalkeeper, we're in for another roller coaster of 90 odd minutes..

      If, at the final whistle we have the 3 points I can take the oxygen mask off  ;D
      Otherwise, I've been told they're keeping me on the ward !

      3-1 ....... I reckon  ;)

      I actually agree on the Gini comment. In fairness to him, he literally plays every single game so perhaps a rest here might help. I'd play Keita ahead of Lallana because the boos may affect him.

      But I wouldn't start Joe. He has been out so long and I Matip's form has been fine so I see no reason to risk changing.

      We really do have a great squad now and we need it more than ever . I think in our remaining games with the exception of Chelsea we should try and literally play them off the park we need to "win" this league not stumble of the finishing line by default.

      Milner needed LB in Europe and think Gini needs a breather as looked off last few games. Fabinho a must and probably Hendo and Keita or Lallana.  Would like to see Keita
