      Excited that Villa is going to play the reserves. We always get such shitty draws in the cups that we could really use a break.

      Too bad Nancy Keita is hurt still because this would have been a great game for him to get minutes and back in rhythm. Would like to see Kelleher, Neco, Tsimikas, Ox, Clarkson and Taki all start, and may be an opportunity for Van den Berg and/or Koumetio to get another shot at playing time with the main squad.

      But if villa have to field a load of kids/ressies, surely that ‘s an opportunity to take advantage, not a time to put our second string out 🤷‍♂️

      I think Tsimikas is still out injured.

      Would imagine jurgen picked his team before the news

      I believe Liverpool/Jürgen probably would have been aware of Villa's situation a few days ago as the tests are from Monday hence the results would have been by the next day.

      If this goes ahead and against Villas kids I really think we should rest Robbo and Fab.

      Nat snd Rhys have played at a decent levrl and should be trusted.

      Play Minamino, Milner and maybe even Ox who have not played much

      I’ve made my prediction, but thinking I may need to change it depending on what side we put out.
      Of course by the time the team is appointed, it’s usually too late to change 😳
      May have to stick with it. 0-2 to the red men !

      I went for 5-0 to Villa based on us fielding a C team, can I change it?? ;-)

      This 'will they wont they' play is ridiculous.  There should be set rules on 'if x number of players and first team staff test positive' then its off.

      Seems like a massive opportunity to game the system. 

      Maybe we should have our own unspecified outbreak before the United game - give Jota a couple of weeks to return.

      Agree entirely.

      Not that hard for the governing bodies to sit down and come up with a sensible formula of when a game should or could be called off.

      If they're going with the kids I hope we do similar and only play first team players who need games to find a bit or rhythm.

      There should be. Otherwise, it’s evidence that the FA/League is absolutely clueless, or is still finding a way to govern fixtures amid the pandemic.

      Either of these possibilities is not surprising to me, considering how its refs and VAR are clueless about their decision making.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would play 4-1-2-2-1. Would rest AOC, Fabinho, Salah, Mane and Thiago or at least will give them only 25 minutes.

      With the Covid news, I would change a little line-up.

      I don't think he will play with a back 4 with little experience otherwise he risks being humiliated if we lose(which happened to Everton against our kids last season),Jürgen always puts at least 1 sometimes 2 experienced defenders in domestic cup games (Jürgen even played Fab and TAA at the back in the dead rubber CL game this season.

      Why would you think that back 4 would be bumiliated when they have held there own in the champions league and premier league?

      Ditto Brian,i would send the first team out to absolutely smash(double figures would be nice) these for what they did to our youngsters last season and this season with our first team,Jürgen has 8 days after this for the Manc game and is in a no win situation(we are expected to beat them)so lets knock some goals in and show no mercy.

      Seriously?you expect the premier league champions to struggle against Villa's kids,i can't believe what i'm reading. Jürgen said when he joined that he wanted turn doubters into believers,it seems not all have taken that on board.I grew up loving the fa cup and it's sad that money rules over trophies but that's the reality for LFC,Pep always plays a strong line up in every competition but sadly Jürgen doesn't.

      Is anybody arsed that we're sending our lads out to play a squad that are coming from a club with high Corona positives?

      The incubation period is up to 14 days and the chance that the entire squad that will be playing tonight haven't come into contact with a player with a positive is highly improbable.

      Worrying about injuries is one thing but half the squad isolating with Corona and having to send the kids out in the league is entirely different.
