      Expecting a lot of changes here, just need to win but without over working key players. Any win will do.

      Id leave Bobby in after netting on Saturday, see if he can get a run going. Minamino and Jota up with him.

      Back 5 as is so my roation would be Jones Milner and Shaq in the mid give Gini a rest

      Not to jinx us but should really be a easy win...

                Alisson
      Neco Rhys Matip Tsikimas
               Milner Gini
         Shaqiri Jones Jota
                 Minamino

      Have no real knowledge of the opposition, although by the sounds of things, a decent win on the cards. I will go with 3  0 to the Reds.

      No Matip or Tzimikas would play Milner at LB but would leave us short midfield no Keita or Thiago

      Always be cautious of any unkown opposition but honestly our B team should be more than strong enough for this.

      Could play the same back 4 giving them more game time to gel and build up familiarity and confidence in their play. Jones might get another go in midfield.Probably Shaq as well.

      Alisson. Trent,Fab,Gomez,Robbo,Shaq,Jones,Milner,Mo,Mini,Jota. But could be Origi gets a start.

      3-0.

      I only care about getting 3 points on the board.

      Everything else is secondary to that.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would rest Allison, Henderson, Wijnaldum and Salah and drop Firmino.

      I'd be surprised if we see that many changes, best to get points in the bag and qualification sorted before taking it all for granted.

      Back 4 the same, Hendo & Milner, Minamino possibly replacing Sadio or Mo to give one of them a rest

      Keep Bobby in the team and hope he can bag again.

      Agreed; resting/rotation is nice but secondary.

      Think some want to treat this as a Carabao cup match...

      I see no reason to play Adrian unless we have no other option,. Allison could do with another game to get up to speed anyway, he was a teeny bit rusty on Saturday.

      Qualify for knock out rounds first, then let’s talk about rotation. Take no team for granted.

      The medical team know who can play and for how long.
      The reality is that sports science these days, monitoring fatigue etc is really advanced.

      IMO, it's get the 3 points in the bag, then bring on subs.
      We're allowed 5 now, so it makes sense to use them.
