      Goes ahead in Denmark after fears of having to forfeit then move it to Dortmund.

      Already qualified and Midtjylland already bottom theres nothing at stake in this one.. Surely this will be a night off for the first team?

      Big question for supporters is probably do you go with Origi or give the game time to the likes of Glatzel or Stewart?

      Id see no reason to take Kelleher out. The more he plays the better he will get. An hour for Trent and Naby perhaps, to get them back up to speed.

                                 Kelleher
            Trent     Rhys            Koumetio Tsmiskas

                         Cain Keita Clarkson

             Minamino  Stewart  Origi/Glatzel

      havnt a clue what team will start on wednesday. defo lots of changes, Personally if Origi starts its his last last last chance, he looked really uninterested the last time he started.

      Klopp might surprise a few by starting more senior lads than we expect. Joto, as brian noted trent and keita need a game to help with match sharpness, even if its only 60mins.

      I think we need at least 1 senior CB or fabhino. ;D

      What's the rules regarding the playing of all the kids for this one.

      Obviously in this instance we are qualified and Midtjylland can't qualify - but what would have happened if we were playing Ajax and they were level with Atalanta and going for qualification?

      5.55 KO. Damn. Was looking forward to sleeping through this one but with it being an evening game I'll have no excuses not to watch.

      This is Liverpool and every game matters and with that in mind time to play the kids and f**k the result off.

      Do we have a squad of fringe  players that would assemble a starting XI? Struggling to find some midfielders and a CB we can use.

      Maybe half an hour for Trent and Keita, no more than that, other than that play the fringe players, ther ei sno sense in risking any key players in this game. I'd even be tempted to play Adrian in goal, throw the poor f**ker a bone.

      It's game time for those who need it most, be it coming back from injury or letting the kids gain more experience. We could experiment with how we play as well.

      That would be a case of not our f**king problem, Atalanta would just have to make sure they also beat their opponent and then see where the cards land.

      and Gini, Hendo and Robertson by the looks of it ;-)

      BTW I'm not arguing, I mostly agree with this except I'd probably give Adrian a game.

      I expect Keita and Arnold to get around 60 minutes and Origi and Minamino to get full games. Robbo, Matip and Fab should get the night off. The rest just use any kid who is registered for the CL.

      Might be easier if we mention those who are unlikely to start.....Robbo, Fabinho,Matip, Hendo, Gini, Mane, Bobby, Salah,

      So we it’s likely we will see something like this.............

                                                                           Minamino     Jota         Origi


                                                         Bench; Kelleher, Trent, Fabinho, Hendo, Gini, Bobby Cain



                         Score = Not bothered  😕

      Kelleher, Neco, Rhys, Tsimikas, Cain, Clarkson, Minamino and Origi.

      Think those 7 will play but no idea regarding the rest really. Maybe Trent and Keita will get some minutes to get up to speed again.

      I think Milner not ready mate. See no pic of him in training, instead AOC already trained with the team today.

      Really like that start XI mate  :)

      If it's me I will definitely not risk TAA, Matip, Gini, Robbo, Mane and Mo.
      And for me Naby must play this (as he seemed prone to injury so play him upon he available).

      There are photos of today's training on the official site, but it's hard to tell everyone involved because a lot of the pics are from a distance and the closeups are mostly of first team regulars. I see Leighton Clarkson for instance, but I don't see Jake Cain. He may have been there, but along with pics being taken from distance, the players are heavily bundled in a lot of the pics (lovely weather on Merseyside today, it appears).

      Someone mentioned Ox appears to be in full training. I don't know if Jürgen would try to give him a runout tomorrow or not, maybe too soon if today is his first day back in team training.

      Looks like even with a lot of so-called fringe players we can still put out a decent side. No doubt Minamino, Tsimikas and Keita need a game, as does Origi. I know Jota missed most of the Wolves game, but I would still keep him out tomorrow, there will still be 3 games in 7 days to follow.

      I"m guessing Jürgen goes with Neco Williams at right back and we see Trent back in the starting lineup on the weekend vs. Fulham. A lot of the first choice players will likely be training at Kirkby on Wednesday, while the others are in Denmark.

      Would probably give Trent and Keita a start, get some game time into them.
      And give Kelleher another start too.
      Apart from that, would rest all the regulars.
      Great win that last week vs Ajax, free hit for Jürgen tomorrow.
