      Supposedly Alisson, Fab and Jota back for this one, but we'll wait and see.

      Important match to say the least.

      Big call in Fab if he plays and where he slots in . They will play Warner for this and try and utilise his pace against us

      A draw would not be too bad a result, against Chelsea. At the same time a win and another 3 points even better. Going for a 2-1 win for the champions, to end our poor run of form at home.

      Lucky for us Werner needs about 50 chances to score in a game.

      We actually have proper squad options again for the first time in what feels like ages.

      A game that we need to win in reality to keep our fight for top 4 going.
      We usually do well at Anfield against the Chavs, I can see us getting at least a draw, but we should be able to win if we dont hand them silly goals.

      If Alisson feels ok he starts.

      If Fab is fit for me he goes in beside Philips. Keita or Shaq in the right of the middle 3 Thiago central. Jones left unless those ice packs Sunday night were for more then swelling

      Hope the lads turn on a good performance against the Chavs, especially in memory of the great club legend, Ian St.John.

      Hopefully beat the rent boys and shut them up for a while.

      Feel as if Phillips & Kabak should remain at CB and hopefully Fab slots back into the holding role. Tuchel does like playing Giroud so that plays right into the hands of Phillips who hasnt put a foot wrong IMO. Lack of pace yes, but hes everything else you want in a CB.

      If Fab is ft then I'd play him and Nat in defence, We need as strong a defence as possible against Chelsea, they are in decent form at the moment.

      I actually fancy us to win this game, but I also think they'll score, so I'll go for a nerve jangling 3-2 to us.

      I’m reading we may have Alison, Fab, Jotta and Keita all available tomorrow.
      That would be a huge boost to everyone.
      On the strength of that, I’ve changed my prediction from 3:2 to 3:1.
      Think they’ll get a consolation late on, but I rekon with the upgrade in our starting 11 since Sunday, we are gonna dominate midfield, and with our 3 amigos plus Jotta we are gonna give them a bit of a run around.
      Our chances are starting to go in, so 3 out of the 12 we create will be enough.
      Can’t wait now !

      F**kin hell Heimy I actually agree with you, have you had your covid jab cos this is most unusual, check for side effects mate maybe your morphing into a half decent humanoid,
      Anyhoo enough of the niceties, Chavs although decent will bring the best out in us, hope Jones is fit id have him Thiago and the impressive Gini in midfield and the usual suspects up top.  Perhaps slightly predictable but i still think those three frighten the sh*t out of defences, 

      If indeed Fabinho, Naby & Jota are back what a boost that will be for everyone.

      2-1 Champions

      If fully fit then Fab needs to start in midfield. Give Gini the rest and maybe give Naby a game as well.

      Wouldn't worry about defence. Need to be firing up front and giving them something to think about.

      Going to be a very tough game. Tuchel an upgrade on Frank and will prey on our weaknesses better.

      I'd be content with 4 points from our next two games under the circumstances.

      I'd rather Fabinho defended from midfield. I think the experiment of Fab/Hendo missing from midfield has already proven to be a spectacular failure.

      Sooner one of them is back in there the better IMO.

      I really feel we'll be up for this, the win at Sheffield on Sunday hopefully will give us the impetus to have good go at these, as long as we concentrate and get at them early, show them we mean business, I think we'll win, not comfortably but a win nonetheless.

      Be a nice boost to the squad if Jota, Ali and Fab are all there too, looking forward to getting our home record back on track with a win.

      I sort of agree with you BUT a CB of Nat and Kabak against Chelsea is a bit too scary for me, unless Fab plays extremely deep, almost as a third CB.

      Have Robbo and Trent super attacking, and have Fab has a third CB with the freedom to roam forward when we have the ball.


                     Alisson
      Trent - Phillips - Kabak - Robbo
                      Fabinho
                   Gini - Thiago

      I can see Fab being slotted straight in at CB.

      I'd like to see:

                                      Alisson

            Trent       Phillips      Fab        Robbo

                               Thiago     Gini     

                Mane             Jones            Jota

                                         Salah

      Sounds like all but Jota. Diogo trained on his own today and I think Jürgen is pretty strict that you have to train with the team, the full session, before you get into the squad. He was ready for Sheffield United before he got sick. I would look for him at the weekend instead.

      Fabinho in midfield for me. I think we get more out of Thiago if Fab is also there.
