                   Alisson
      Gomez Lovren VVD Milner
           Hendo/Fab Gini Keita
          Lallana Firmino Mane

      Would give the FBs a rest, and Salah - and either Fab or Hendo.
      Need a point, but still should be able to nab that while giving a few players a rest - as well as give some of the other lads a chance in a match that's not some fizzy cup.
      A LOT of games coming so don't think we've any choice but to start getting used to regular changes - as long as the priority stays the PL imho.

      IDK, i think he goes with the strongest 11 that he has available, this is a massive match in that it allows us the freedom to wrap everything up early and rest everybody in the match against red bull.

      I understand your reason and I agree with you but I think that my team is well capable to beat Naples at our home.

      They stuffed us in pre-season and have beaten us this season so hopefully strongest team, get the win this time and give ourselves a bit of freedom in the final game.

      Not to mention it would be nice to progress before a final week drama for a change.

      We've found Napoli VERY difficult to overcome  the past 2 seasons, so talk of resting players for this is a bit of a joke!

      Makes more sense to rest a couple of players home to Brighton, which is in theory, an easier game.

      We should, & I'm sure will, go full strength.   If we go a couple up, maybe rest a couple in the last 20 mins.  Get the win, ensure topping the group, then we can rest as many as we like away to Salzburg.

      This will be a testing match again.

      Alisson

      Alexander Arnold
      Lovren
      Van Dijk
      Robertson

      Fabinho
      Oxlade
      Keita

      Mane
      Firmino
      Origi
      Outside of the Carabao & maybe FA cup, there's no chance of both Ox & Keita starting at the same time.

      Strong side, hopefully an early goal to put Napoli on the backfoot straight away. Make sure of all 3 points, to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

      Lallana, wtf?? You're gonna have to explain that one to me, why would you play someone with notoriously horrible finishing as a forward? Despite Ox being a bit average on Saturday I'd always rather play him than Lallana as a forward, or how about Origi, our actual forward!

      Hoping this is the game where we really kick into gear and give this lot a spanking. We owe them one and think they may well get it.

      Although napoli seem to be in a bit of turmoil they still have an excellent coach and very good team. Promises to be very tight

      I have a feeling we will as well, I thought we were better than them in the first leg and should have won despite playing quite poorly and we are playing much better now, whereas they seem to be in a mini slump.

      Fact is, they have been a very difficult team for us in the past couple of seasons, two losses in group stage, a pre-season hiding and an important but narrow victory last year to advance. They will feel confident of their chances against us. I agree with Klopp that the off-field drama they are experiencing won't impact them on the park tomorrow.

      But it should be a proper European night at Anfield and a chance to write another chapter in a wonderful legacy for this competition.

      Let's do this.

      Not saying Jürgen will start him, and he likely won't as he's had fewer starts than AOC. Was more making the point to rest Salah - so yeah, could slot AOC or Origi in instead of him.
      Lallana's form has been up and down over the years [when fit] but think in the games I've seen him so far this season he's done well imo, so I'd be interested to see him get a run. And got an important goal in the PL against Utd.

      I’m expecting some rotation in the middle of the park but aside from that it’ll be our strongest team I should think. I think we’ll go:

      Trent.        Lovren.      VVD.    Robbo

                            Fabinho
                 Ox.                    Milner

        Salah.           Firmino.         Mane

      Long day of travelling ahead of me.

      Setting off in 2 hours for this one. Can't wait. Slept sh*te the last few nights so hopefully catch a few more hours on the bus/boat as I'm knackered.

      Really looking forward to this one and with Napoli on a bad run of form I really hope we can add to it by spanking them, we owe them one from our only defeat in 90 minutes this season.

      Very clear from Klopp's pre match that he's going with a full strength team and rightly so.

      It would be a great boost to wrap up qualification, by winning this game tonight. Certainly the team has enough quality to beat Napoli, putting us through to the next stages of the competition, without having to worry about the Salzburg game.
