      Might see Ox from the beginning as well. Tsimikas and/or Neco Williams are possibilities as well, not that it should be ALL change.


      Possibly, but whenever he has started hes not been at races, but surely his fitness should be getting there now. He was good when he came on at weekend.

      Alisson; Trent, Nat, Hendo, Robbo; Gini, Ox, Jones; Shaqiri, Mo, Bobby.

      Would be good if we could rest Milly and Thiago before Sunday as they've played a lot recently but I think we'll probably end up playing one of them.

      This could be it. Some rotation, but not too much.

      I think Thiago needs more games, he’s looking better each time - need to keep the momentum

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would play Firmino and Shaqiri behind Salah because they are all flexible to move around in their defensive area.

      Another 3 points please.

      There's literally no way Kabak is going to play in this game. I don't think he's even in Liverpool yet. Arriving today from what I understand. Doubt he'll even train with the team before this game.

      Believe neither of them are eligible. Sure there was a deadline of 12pm Sunday to be eligible for the midweek games.

      Both can play, Jürgen has just confirmed it. Doubt they will though, maybe bench for one of them.

      It will almost certainly be Hendo and Phillips in CB. Gini, Thiago and probably Jones in Midfield. Salah Bobby and Shaq to start.

      Just to state that Kabak is well above Davies in level. It's a great story with Davies and I hope he has a good experience, but he is the cover option and Kabak should be starting at centre back, maybe as soon as Sunday.

      Klopp adds in presser that we will now see Rhys Williams back with the U23s so he can play regularly.

      That makes sense, so our CB options for the rest of the season will be Fabinho, Kabak, Nat, Davies and Hendo in that order, once they are up to speed and that should be more than enough.

      We owe these a pasting after the bogus penalty call last time out. Could be a high scoring affair this.

      I agree, I fancy us to continue our run tomorrow, the lads must be as pumped as we all are to finally have some decent CB reinforcements.

      Thats just people, probably kids, all excited with their new toys.

      Kabak likely not even in Liverpool yet.

      Davies might make the bench tomorrow. Also think Sunday is say too big a game to throw 2 lads learning our system straight in to it

      Outside of ourselves I dont watch much live football so Id base my view of Brighton on highlights.

      Not sure Id say they beat Spurs so they must be good, I reckon spurs will implode from our win over them.

      Lamptey seem good and I know Bissouma is highly regarded. Outside of that where will they cause us problems?

      Can't see either of the new lads starting.
      But bringing them in should give the squad a lift, and sends out intent we want to challenge in PL and CL.
      Hard to believe we're now without VVD, Gomez and Matip long term.
      Likely be Hendo/Nat again for this one, maybe even the one after too - games coming thick and fast.

      Good footballing side but obviously where they are in table suggests struggles. Nat will have a different test than W Ham as they play most on deck but have some big lads at back who are dangerous at set pieces

      They beat Spurs comfortably, could easily have won 3 or 4 nil, so might be a little trickier than expected.
      And its not like we've been beating all lower table sides and having trouble against higher placed ones :)
      Still, we're on an upswing so hopefully we can put them away.

      No chance any of them start tmrw, klopp said as much today. Also confirmed that Fab should be fit for city, and it will be him and hendo.

      Agree. It'll be next week before we see either I'd say.

      I'm in two minds about this one, whether it's best to rotate or keep the momentum going, but inclined to rotate a few if it was my decision.

      Alisson

      Trent     Phillips     Hendo     Robertson

      Gini

      Chamberlain      Jones

      Salah           Firmino           Shaqiri

      Not a huge fan of Shaqiri off the left but something along these lines.
