Shows how much of an incredible season this has been that a Champions League quarter final has just sneaked up on us like that I think this will be a lot more difficult than our games against Porto last season, they are at this stage for a reason and will be a tough hurdle I'm sure. I believe they are without one of their stars, their left back Telles who got injured taking a penalty the other week. I haven't seen any updates on this recently but he'd be a big miss for them, especially with Salah attacking down that side.As far as I'm concerned, Henderson and Milner's introduction on Friday night were the reason we came away with 3 points, and for that reason they'd be in my starting 11. Start solid and bring Keita and co onto the pitch later in the game.

Looks like he is struggling. Pepe and Herrera banned as well so not at full strength
Hats off to the lads for being at CL quarter finals and top of the league at this stage of the season...improvement under Klopp has been immense no matter how much criticism we may level at his team selection every now and then.No complacency, I expect a professional display and a 2-0 win.
I do agree, but for what it’s worth, Milner would have been playing this game regardless of his performance at the weekend because Robbo is suspended and I doubt Klopp would risk going with Moreno.
I think Fab and Hendo will be in the starting 11 and the other midfielder will depend on how adventurous Klopp wants to be from the outset.
Expect Milner in midfield, Moreno at left back, and a Reds win.
Think Milner will be left back, not because of lack of trust in Moreno it's just Milly is a better player than Moreno in that position. Milly will support the attack better as he is also an experienced winger as well. Play anywhere Jim lad...bet he knocks up a decent curry as well..
Think we are more likely to see Gomez come back in and play LB than Moreno.
It's also because of a complete lack of trust in Moreno; he's played 150 minutes of footy this season and makes far too many mistakes to be called upon for a game of this magnitude. In comparison, Milner is defensively more solid and has got more assists than any other player in the Champions League over the last 2 seasons, no brainer really.
From an attacking perspective, I am more of a fan of his attacking play than Robertson where he is more prone to making runs behind the defence/full back (similar to Alba), but his end product is no where near good enough. I also think he has good energy levels and will get up and down the pitch as good as and probably quicker than Robertson.Anyway, I too can't see him starting and will most likely be Milner at left back, but then again, Klopp has surprised us a few times this season!
I agree with you nearly all the time - but how you prefer Moreno’s attacking play over Robertson is truly baffling
