      The way things are going and with the ability Leipzig gave to score I think we need to be smart here.

      Hold what we have.

      Against every ideal I have Id go 4 5 1 to be a lot more solid and to kill space for them.

      Trent and Robbo would be vital to this as would Thiago. Unless Kabak is ok we have to go again with Fab at the back I dont think Rhys will be up the movement of Leipzig

                             Alisson
         Neco    Philips   Fab   Tsimikas

      Trent   Thiago  Milner  Keita  Robbo

                                 Mo

      Milner ahead of Gini for leadership and bite. Keita breaking alongbwith Trent and Robbo when we have the ball

      Thiago, Milner and Naby must be the slowest set of midfield combinations anywhere, they wouldn’t be able to break out of a paper bag never mind leading any break against Leipzig.

      I understand what you are saying about playing defensive but in some ways you may be asking for more trouble that way.
      How confident are you of a back line containing Neco and Phillips and inviting the opposition onto us?

      I think we might be better off pressing them higher up but in a 4231 or 41212.

      Certainly one things for sure the 433 seems dead for us in terms of creating anything.

      The only questions here will be whether Fab plays in midfield or defense. Otherwise, I think this lineup will be pretty standard. It's clear Jürgen was resting starters against Fulham for this game.

      With a 2-0 lead no need to try score and can just focus on managing the game and let them come out and leave spaces in the back to exploit. Lot of rotation against Fulham so should expect a pretty full team. Salah was one of the few not rested on Sunday and after his sh*t play causing us a goal against i would rest him and get Jota back out.

      Think it's important now that Davies and Phillips build up a partnership. Play 2 No. 6,s to protect them in a 4 2 3 1 formation. We don't need to score just ride it out.

      Big game this. They are no mugs. We have a good lead to take into the game but our season depends on us getting through this tie now.

      I won’t guess a team because i don’t actually know who i would pick right now.

      I think we will lose. But still scrape through.
      1-2.

      Currently have no optimism for this game. Hoping the lads will 100% prove me wrong but on current form hire do they pick themselves up?

      Can’t do a score predictions as fed up with  my wins not happening.

      Watched these the other week and they were poor at the back but offer a big threat at the other end think (hope) we have done just enough in the first leg

      Concentrate on improving defence, if at all possible. Try to score as early as possible, otherwise hope for the f**king best !

      Not sure Kabak is fit enough yet but even so I’d prefer Phillips next to Fabinho, we can’t gamble with a Phillips/Williams, Phillips/Davies, Kabak/Phillips as CB’s, so unfortunately Fabinho has to be one of them,


      I’d go....Alisson, Trent, Phillips, Fabinho, Robbo, Gini, Keita, Jones, Jota, Salah Mane

         Bench.. Adrian, Neco, Kabak, Milner, Thiago, Shaqiri,Firmino, Tsimikas, Origi, Souness


      F**k knows how we will play, just hope we can put our domestic woes behind us for 95mins and finish the job off without too many dramas.
