      Hard one to call. Our league form has been so dire that I have little confidence it will pick up soon. That being said, we have injured players coming back and have just had a morale boosting victory in Europe.

      If we lose, unless my maths is wrong, it’ll be mathematically impossible for us to win the title, which back in December would have been laughable.

      I wouldn’t mind seeing Davies start at the back. Otherwise similar team to the other night.

      2-2

      Who would you drop for the untested Davies?

      Phillips.
      Davies needs to start sometime. Arsenal next isn’t a great game to do it. He needs to be integrated in case we really need him soon.

      Yes but we have an OK partnership with Kabak and Nat, let's not f**k around with it unless we have to.

      An ‘OK’ partnership might not cut it against the better teams.
      Perhaps Davies and kabak is the dream ticket. We won’t know until we try.

      or perhaps Davies and Kabak they would be a disaster, I'm a firm believer in the adage "if it aint broke why fix it", especially when you are in a tricky spot. We desperately need some stability at the back and we also need to build some momentum after a very promising display midweek.

      If we get a run going there’s no reason why we can’t finish top 6.
      Top 4 unlikely but we can give it a go but would need to be prettt flawless from now until end of season.

      I feel quite confident that Davies and Kabak is not "the dream ticket."  :lmao:

      Pearce writes that Klopp believes Davies needs more time to adapt to Liverpool's style of play. At some point it's evident that Jürgen does not rate him highly enough to pick in the starting XI (like when he picked Rhys Williams over Davies last week), and barring any evidence otherwise, I'm inclined to take Jürgen's opinion for it. When we say "Davies has to start sometime" well in fact, he does not have to. You'd like to think the players that are recruited will be good enough to be picked at some point but, that doesn't mean the manager is obligated to do so.

      It's a weird one I know, but I really don't expect to see Davies in action for us this season unless maybe we have a dead rubber toward the end, or we get another wave of center back injuries.

      Which is odd considering Phillips and Williams are simply not good enough.
      Why buy someone who isn’t fancied.
      Either way, we just need to win tomorrow.

      All of our final ten games are finals and are must win if we still have aspirations of a top 4 finish,  this will need everyone to be on it %100, no slackers need apply,

      Understandable some want to keep the same side V RB, but RB didn't park any buses whereas I  think Nuno might, maybe not so much park a bus but certainly be more defensive, so I'd go this.......

                               Allison
              Trent Kabak Phillips Robbo
                             Fabinho
                   Thiago             Keita
                Jota        Salah      Mane

      Toyed with the idea of dropping Bobby into midfield with Fabinho and Thiago with a front three of Jota, Salah & Mane,  but we'd probably get run over by their mids, and it's not the time to be experimenting when we're chasing a top 4 spot, I seen enough against Leipzig to convince me that finally we can start getting back to somewhere near how we can dominate teams again when you have round pegs in round holes ,

      There was a better flow to our game and you could see the confidence that it gave our players when playing close to what they were more familiar with, there is no reason we can't do the same at Molyneaux tomorrow,  same recipe please with added tempo and Bob's yer Aunty.

      1-2 Champions

      All to play for with other sides dropping points. Obviously important to try to pick up three points against Wolves tomorrow night.

      Yup. Win tomorrow and we’re 5 points off Chelsea with 27 to play for. Not easy, especially since there are 3 other teams ahead of us, but definitely not out of it.

      I'd play Phillips and Kabak again with Jota up front instead of Salah. We need to rotate these forwards. I think Jones, Fab and Keita in midfield.

      Agree, plus after this game there is plenty of rest with the international break.

      At this point i have no idea who is going away on internationals or not, but i hope our "key" players choose to skip meaningless friendlies to stay and rest and focus on finishing the season strong.

      I think Jürgen will change the team again,Firmino unless injured will come back in for Jota who has just come back from injury and he may put Fab back into the back four as wolves have a lot of pace on the counter and Philips is not the fastest and is caught out of position a lot when he steps up,have a feeling he will play Ox tonight.
