      Biggest game of the season given our horrendous capitulation in the league. I'd be very surprised not to see Fab back in defence where he has been excellent all season until the injury. I'd go for:

                                 Alisson

      Trent            Fabinhon           Kabak          Robbo


                               Gini        Thiago

                                     Jones

        Salah                     Jota                    Mane

      There probably isn't a worse European country for the Leipzig and Liverpool players to be travelling to right now.

      Suspect it would have been safer by a magnitude of at least ten for Leipzig to travel to Anfield.

      Hungarians on Monday awoke to a new round of strict lockdown measures aimed at slowing a record-breaking wave of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths that are among the worst in the world.

      A rapid rise in pandemic indicators since early February prompted Hungary's government to announce the new restrictions, including closing most stores for two weeks and kindergartens and primary schools until April 7.

      Mind you, in terms of qualification for the next round its probably safer that Liverpool don't play at home.

      I'd prefer Keita instead of Wijnaldum but doubt he's going to after his first full 90 minutes back.

      Thiago has looked more interested in the CL than the Premier League so he can play as well.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I'd play

      Alisson

      Trent Rhys/Kabak Nat Fab Robbo

      Thiago Gini

      Jota

      Salah  Mane


      ie a 5-2-1-2 formation, very defensive but enough of a counter attacking threat to keep Leipzig on their toes. We have to start protecting our defence more, start getting some clean sheets/draws and then build back from there.

      We briefly saw what we’ve been missing when Fabinho came on in the midfield for the last 15 against Fulham, but he has to play in the back four in Europe otherwise it’s a car crash waiting to happen.  A pairing of phillips with either rhys or kabak would be suicide against decent opposition.

      I’ve also had it with Gini now, he turns up every week but actually does nothing. Keita plays for me too. I don’t think playing him for a game and then leaving him out for three has ever done him any good. He needs a consistent run of games so his body can get used to the demand. Keep playing him.

      Alisson

      Trent
      Phillips
      Fabinho
      Robbo

      Thiago
      Milner
      Keita

      Mane
      Jota
      Salah

      I wasn’t impressed with this lot the first time around and I think one goal will see us through.

      Don’t know Brian but we need Fab in the middle of the park alongside Keita on the right & Thiago.. these 3 will give defensive cover for our fullbacks bombing forward..

      We need to play 3 CB's, sit deep and hit them on the counter attack, unless our players are unable to handle a change in formation /tactics.

      Tough ask to get another 90 out of Jota but no options now really as Shaq/Origi just aren't viable options for a game like this. Think Fab needs to go back into defence for this one as well.

      Wonder if they'll play Hwang from the start tomorrow, his pace in behind worries me.

      We're stronger up top without Bobby as he offers zero goal threat and loses possession regularly. Just hope Jota is ok to start another game in quick succession.

      Actually I think you probably could use Origi in a game like this, to a certain extent, IF you set up as more of a counter attacking team. I'd actually be tempted to start Origi and then if we somehow find ourselves needing to chase a goal we can bring on Jota or Mane.

      Is that guy Ben Davies fit?  I thought I saw videos of him in training, but I can't remember if he's ever been in a match day squad.  If he is fit, he must be really bad to find himself behind Kabak, Rhys, Nat, etc. 

      The CL is all we have to play for now.  Hopefully Klopp can find a way to make us a little more defensively resilient while maintaining a threat on the counter.  If we can find the right balance of that, we could actually still win this thing.  It's just a matter of grinding out results and getting a little bit of luck in the right moments.

      Why oh why do you want Fabinho at CB when that has been part of the problem for so long now? Playing players out of position. He’s a midfield beast, let him do his job ffs...

      A sh*t load has happened between the first leg and tomoz, not getting away from the fact that domestically we’ve been absolute Pants, with lots of sh*t in them too, but tomorrow is a different target, a different comp and hopefully a different mentality,
      First leg from what I remember was a lot of worrying that we would get turned over, as it turned out however,Leipzig had about a good 35 mins throughout the  95+ but didn’t really cause too many dramas, well nothing we couldn’t handle,

      Alisson, Trent, Kabak, Henderson, Robbo, Gini, Jones, Thiago, Mo, Bobby Mane took to the field as starters, we won 2-0 ,

      We have all of those players available again with the exception of Hendo & Bobby, but do have Fabinho, Keita & Jota, kind of changes the dynamic me thinks,


      We have to play Fabinho at CB, Phillips next to him with Trent & Robbo either side, Gini as DM, Jones & Naby in midfield, and Mo Jota & Mane up top, two nil is a decent start, but not insurmountable, one goal against and their backs are up and our chins go down, I know it’s hard to imagine us actually scoring but with Jota & Naby back I think we pose more of a threat than the first leg,

      There’s more pressure on them because they HAVE to score and that could play right into our hands when they push forward, Phillips adds a bit of height for the set pieces and just has more about him than Kabak has, IF we can score early doors it’s game over so soon as we can do that the better.


                                                           Alisson
                                           Trent  Phillips  Fabinho  Robbo
                                                         Wijnaldom
                                                  Jones.            Keita
                                               Salah.     Jota.     Mane


                 2-0 European Royalty
