      Like  most fans would love to beat Man U on their own backyard, but with our lack of goals, this is surely going to be an uphill task to say the least !

      Need a performance on Sunday and no longer in a position to be introducing younger players. Needs to be a strong team.

      Milner needs to play this especially if Hendo out some grit and steel in there

      Perfect game to get that fire going again.
      Win or lose, it’s time to step it up.
      No f**king around, strongest team, and if can get the win it will get that confidence up.
      1-2 Thiago and Mane 💪🏼

      expect Jürgen will rotate a couple of others out of the starting XI for the sake of fixture congestion (could be Trent who sits rather than Robbo), but a strong team altogether.

      NB: Team no longer available

      All down to players' decision-making in the end. Wouldn't Sunday vs. this opponent be the best time to turn it around?

      Come on boys!

      If I'm Klopp I'll go for it full-throttle, i. e. best 11 available.
      FA-Cup might be our more realistic shot for silverware than PL.

      A win here would be huge, so i think Klopp will go with a strong team.

      Since neither Salah or Firmino started last game i think they're a lock to start this one and maybe Origi in LW if Klopp feels Mane needs as breather.

      Not sure how much United will rotate but i too expect them to play a strong team which means Matip/Fabinho likely need to start at CB.

      Give Neco and Tsimikas the start as well.

                 Alisson
      Neco   Fab   Matip   Tsimikas
                  Hendo
          Gini          Jones
      Salah   Bobby     Origi

      You're right, i missed him (goes to show how little he gets to play these days).

      Taki in, Origi out.

      Mmm you might be right just think with groin might aim for Spurs. Would play Milner anyway tbh at either Rb or Lb better than both Neco and Tzimikas and just might need his experience and steel in this one

      Controversially I’d play similar to what we played V Burnley, but in reverse, and a tweak or two, Alisson in goal obviously, but I’d drop Trent and play Neco with Matip, Fabinho & Robbo, Hendo if fit with Thiago & Jones, and the three M’s up top........



                                              Alisson
                              Williams Matip Fabinho Robbo
                                    Thiago Hendo Jones
                                       Mo  Mina  Mane

      If Hendo is crook, I’d be tempted to play Milner in his stead and play the holding game and hit them on the break, in other words, play them at their own game, it might be boring as f**k but I’d fancy us to actually score a goal running at them rather then trying to pass through them, if I’m totally honest I don’t really give a shiny sh*te about the FA cup, and I’d much prefer to play a few young lads to bleed them in, but since it’s the MUtants I want us to go there and f**k them up, and shut their Neanderthal cunty fans up,(Keith excluded)

      F**k knows what Jürgen will go with, it seems anything he tries goes tits up, and right now we can’t buy a goal never mind a win, but it has to change at some point so what better time than against these glory hunting f**k pigs,

      1-2 Still Champions

      However poor we’ve been of late. It will change, nothing goes on forever, just as our Anfield undefeated record was gonna fall sometime.
      Just can’t think of a better time to turn it all around !

      Gonna be 0 - 2 for the red men !

      I will not do the Live thread because I need to get back into my game as well after this run.

      We need to work harder to get out of this bad run.

      I would rest Thiago, Alisson, Matip and Shaqiri for Spurs and obviously, drop Firmino.

      Atm, if we get by United on Sunday, this is our best bet at a trophy this season. Surely a lot can change in just a few games, but right now I say we got HAM and put out a boss squad and go for it. Would love to KO these bas**rds from the cup and move on. I want a dance at Wembley this may

                Alisson
      Milner Fab Matip Robbo
       Jones Thiago Gini
         Salah Taki Mane

      It's an FA Cup match and I'd usually say give some of the squad lads a run - but imho we need to break out of this sh*te run, the sooner the better. Think we need to play a strong team.
      TAA to the bench, Milner in. If Hendo doesn't play, deffo would have Milner play either at RB or in the middle.
      Would bring Jones back in, AOC has done nothin, presume Keita will be sicknoted, though would slot in Hendo instead if available. Like Jones' ball control and passing, and doesn't mind a shot.
      Toss up between Salah and Shaq, but with Shaq starting last one, expect Mo to start this. Mo has been really poor, but Shaq still hasn't done enough to be a clear pick ahead of him. If had decent option instead of Mo/Shaq on right, would go for it.
      Bob would leave out, Taki in - again, nothin in it - but Bobs finishing clinches it - he can't hit a barn door.
      Mane/Origi - will go Mane, know lot of people don't like Divock, but picking him or not is down to 'relative' form - if the usual lads play even close to what they can, he doesn't get a look, but that's not happnin.

      Don't care that it's Utd. Just want a decent performance.
      And a GOAL !!! Get this f**king b***ard monkey off our backs.

      Big pitch at Old Toilet, get our passing going, and hopefully slightly larger gaps to get thro.
      Maybe get the laces thro a few shots from 20 yards, rather than try walk it in or cross aimlessly for fathead to attack.
      Few balls over the top for runners. Run at people with the ball.
      Rather than constant side to side, over to the FBs, cross, a mutton head clears, recollect, repeat...

      Season gettin written off a bit early, lot of games left - but can't afford to turn like a tanker - need to turn it quick.
      And would love to see Jürgen with a smile back on his mush at the end of it :)

      In a strange way, that defeat just might be the catalyst. It could be the moment a huge weight was lifted, The stress and worry of possible failure. Well its gone now, so the pressures off.
      Think we might just have a blinder tomorrow. 0 - 2 to the red men, and total dominance once again.  >:D
