      Nerves are starting to kick in now ahead of this one tomorrow. Think we'll all be glued to the phones at 3:29pm anticipating the team sheet. Hopefully Matip is fit but I think we'll have to wait until the release of the team sheet until that question is answered.

      If he is fit, I think the team picks itself but if he's unavailable I'd go with the below:
      Alisson; Trent, Hendo, Fab, Robbo; Thiago, Gini, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mané;

      I've scrolled through a few posts on this and not sure if I've seen Milner's name pop up on anyone's potential team sheet.
      Personally, I do find him frustrating to watch at times, especially games like the Newcastle one where we were crying out for a creative midfielder. However, in games like the one tomorrow, I think he can have a significant impact. His work rate and experience will certainly help in nullifying any threat from their midfield runners. I especially think he might be useful in helping out Trent as I think Ole will look to exploit that side of ours. As much as I like Jones as a player, I think Milly might just be more suited for tomorrow's match.

      In terms of the game itself, I was never 100% confident of beating them even when we were playing at the top of our game and they were struggling. It's always a tough one to call and tomorrow is no different. I think all of the talk that's been sent their way/coming from them with regards to their title credentials, can only help us. People are very expectant of them now and hopefully they'll crumble under that type of pressure. We need a big performance from the whole team if we're gonna win but especially from the front three. If they get half a yard, they need to make it count.

      Head: 2-2
      Heart: 3-1 to LFC

      Cant deal with game. Dreading it but hoping for 1 game at least we can muster a huge performance.

      Us with the ball and United on the break that will be the pattern.

      Apart from winning, the one thing I want tomorrow is to see us work De Gea. Shoot when its on, sometimes even when its not on. Just dont be predictable

      Would not mind Miller starting in midfield, if anything to help out and fill in for Trent when he gets forward. Rashford could have some success against him.

      If Matip is fit he starts. We can't have Henderson back there, Klopp even mentioned yesterday that Henderson is important in midfield.

      Been out for 3 weeks not 3 months if he is fit he plays could wait another week and just as likely to pull up in that with his record




      Aye, that’s true enough but you don’t want it to happen halfway thru the match tomorrow, I’d rather get him back to full match fitness and take it from there, I can’t see the point playing a player not at his optimum, risking further injury, putting added pressure on his peers and giving the oppo a shot in the arm, I’d rather have a fully fit Phillips than a 70% Matip, get him back match fit and ready for the CL and the rest of the season, we will need him, missing him for another match far outweigh’s us losing him for weeks !

      So nervous about this game,this is the only team that i never can relax when we play this shower of sh*t,can't stand them with a passion,i was at Wembley in 96 when Cantona scored after James messed up again and they beat us at Anfield on my wedding day in 1997.The mancs that i know are so arrogant that there is no better feeling than beating them and then having a cheesy smile from ear to ear for the next week or so whenever i see them.All i hope for today is no VAR gifting them penalties and 3 points for us(a winning late penalty would be nice).

      Not a chance you are winning this 4-0,you are so overrated and an average team with an average manager who have done and won nothing,the best you can hope for is a draw if we are off our game and that's with all our CB's out injured if Matip doesn't make it.

      Drop your hardest pressing player. I think not. Firmino was made for games like this. bring Shaqiri on late if nothing is working. Otherwise you play your best players and contrary to some meatheads on this forum, Bobby is one of our best players still.

      I disagree totally, we need Salah in the middle if we want to win this game. I know that Firmino will play but I would not have played him.

      Training different than a match but if he is 70% won't play him anyway will soon find out rather play Phillips against Burnley if I am honest

      I know that hence the  :f_whistle: However, our best chance in a while whilst your not at full strength.   I'll settle for a draw though.  ;D  Average manager?? Your too kind  :lmao: Not sure he's that good yet??

      I've never sad we're a great team, still progressing in what's a average league this year..

      More likely scenario would probably be a narrow victory to us or a draw.

      Just feel as though we've owed you a proper beating the last few years while the gulf between the two sides has been so far, but that hasn't really happened. Think we could have (and should have really) won the last two Anfield games by a few more goals, so I'm still holding out for the dream of this side getting a memorable win against United.

      That being said though either team rarely batters the other, even at the beginning of the previous decade when you were streets ahead of us I still remember the games being very close. I think the biggest margin of victory (that I can remember anyway) was a 4-0 to you lot at Old Trafford, and I think that was near enough 20 years ago!

      i don't think you progressing at all with OGS,you are in a false position,you haven't beaten any of the so called top 6 this season,losing to spurs and Arsenal and drawing with city(losing in the cup)Chelsea and Leicester.Your fortunes have changed since Fernandes signed and the endless penalties you are getting is becoming a joke but you will see today how much you have progressed when OGS parks the bus like WBA did a while ago (when we have no CB's fit) and tries to counter,this for me is not a team that has progressed but a team that has learned to win games ugly,losing 4 semi-finals in a year is a sign of either bottlers or you have got a championship manager,OGS couldn't lace any of the top 6 managers boots so i'm more than happy that he stays with you long term and gives you all false hope and wins nothing which the glazers would be happy with if you get in the CL every season filling their pockets.You seem level headed and honest compared to the man u fans i know.

      The 4-0 was only because the ref sent off Sami Hyypia in the first 5 minutes after a foul on RVN and conceding a pen.
