      Barcelona 3-0 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      May 01, 2019 06:43:28 pm








      Liverpool fans at Barcelona




      Camp Nou waiting for a big clash






      Starting XI: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, Mane, Salah

      Subs: Mignolet, Lovren, Firmino, Henderson, Shaqiri, Origi, Alexander-Arnold.

       Joe Gomez starts as Liverpool make four changes for this evening’s Champions League clash with FC Barcelona at Camp Nou.

      The defender is handed a place in Jürgen Klopp’s XI for the semi-final, first-leg encounter for the first time since December.

      Elsewhere, Joel Matip returns in defence, while James Milner and Fabinho are restored in midfield.

      Roberto Firmino is on the bench following a recent muscle injury.

      Very, and no Henderson? Wow, shocked! He would have been my first choice in midfield.

      Gutted to see Firmino isn’t starting (but better if not 100% fit), surprised Milner is starting ahead of Henderson.

      Klopp has started Milner away from home in every UCL game this season. He was always playing.

      Hendo and Firmino to bring energy in second half and Trent. We got this.

      Interesting.

      I kind of expected Firmino not to make it and for Gomez maybe to start but surprised Henderson isn't in.

      I reckon it's a 451 with Milner on the right , Mane left and Salah as the lone striker.

      Don’t even know what to think about the team selection, especially no Hendo... but Klopp knows best, that’s why he’s where he is and why I’m sat on my bed at 7pm in pac man shorts.

      We’re gonna miss Bobby but good to see Joe Gomez back in the starting XI and I think Trent needed a rest and Gomez is better defender.

      Looks like a 4222 with Fab and Gini sitting and Milner Keita in front.

      Doesn’t look like much goal threat to me seems like we are packing the midfield.

      Not really a game for Milner IMO, need Hendo in there instead of him.
      Rest of the team makes sense given Bobbys slight injury and expected Gomez to be in there somewhere.

      Really surprised about no Hendo. Really big positive is that Barca won’t have a clue how we line up

      Doesn’t look like much goal threat to me seems like we are packing the midfield.

      Which is the sensible thing to do away at Barcelona. We're perfectly set up to counter-attack with Fabinho etc. spreading the balls from deep into the paths of the likes of Mane and Salah who will probably operate a bit more centrally between Barcelona's CB's and FB's.

      Like everyone else, gutted Firmino isn't fit enough to start, but we do have a very nice bench to turn things around if needed. I'd obviously have started with Henderson too, perhaps Klopp is hoping he'll have a similar impact like he did when coming off the bench at Southampton? Unleash Hendo in the second half!

      Looks like Milner - Fabinho - Wijnaldum and Keita on the left, more part of the attacking trio. Wondering if Mane will start on the right as I put in my original line-up without Firmino.

      Also very telling that Barcelona are starting with a midfield of Vidal - Busquets - Rakitic. Valverde is shitting himself at the thought of us overrunning his midfield.

      Well very surprised Hendo isn't in. Not as confident now. Fabinho,Milner,Gini,Keita. Big call by the Boss. Hendo of late has shown some great form and he must be gutted to be left out.
