      Forget about all the maths and scenarios Have to win this game Wednesday night - full stop.


      I reckon Gini replaces Curtis in the starting lineup for this one.

      If the lads don't go out there and smash them with 100% determination and passion after Alisson saved them..

      They need to line up and feel the pain with him blasting balls in their direction :lmao:

      Not particularly looking forward to the game but it's amazing that top 4 is in our own hands given where we were a few weeks ago. I would consider playing Fab back in defence for this one. I like Big Nat but Williams scares the life out of me.

      I think it will be a horrible game, ale house team with the fans back in the ground so it will be tough.

      I think it will be a nervy 2-1 win.

      I think our defence will cave in and give a away a goal or two. If the two wing backs like to push up, that leaves two CB kids to defend. We've been weak defensively all season since VVD got injured. I'm totally prepared for this. That begs the question of whether we can break Burnley down.

      Simply 2  0 for the Reds tonight, although Burnley will not go down without a fight. We must finish the season in style, showing that we are ready to reclaim the title next season, with a fully fit squad.

      CL next season would be a great achievement given our injury list and lack of form this season.

      I think Gini will come back in for Curtis, and i think this is the only thing that Klopp will have been pondering after the game, do i put fab in the back four or leave it as it was against WBA.

      If i had to guess, i reckon he plays the same back four, with fab in midfield. If we win the midfield battle, cut off the supply to Wood, could make it an easier game than it would appear.

      Same side V Baggies, without Ali's get out of jail winner, but it's f***in Burnley and we all know that they have a habit of shitting in your kettle when the game means f**k all to them, so we need to be on it from the start and put them to the sword as soon as f***in possible,

      Fullest strongest side possible to take the field at KO, then jiggle things about if we need to......

      No other way to play a Sean Dyche X1 and that is to Attack attack attack attack attack attack attack attack attack attack,  Gegenpress the actual f**k out of them and when we are 3 or 4 up take our foot off the gas, tug the hardest runners/hardest pressers and pass and move the Liverpool groove and when the ref blows on his peeper we can all collectively show Leicester the Finger.

      God damn Burnley. I hate those bunch of thugs. Definitely a good game to have Nat in defense given the aerial bombardment we're going to endure but might be better off with Fab as his partner given they're largely going to bypass him as a DM with the long balls anyway.

      Regardless of fans or no fans, home or away, Liverpool are in a complete different class to Burnley and it is on us to win this game. With the top 4 within our reach there should be no excuse or lack or motivation for this game.

      A draw will feel like a massive deflating defeat.

      Nothing other than a win will do! The boys have worked hard to get back to this point, this game is essentially worth millions!

      Come on boys, do the business - the talent is clear, just f**king do the magic.

      If Sadio is on it tonight then it will be easy.

      What if throw Shaq into midfield? Maybe not enough of a workhorse for what Klopp will want to do?

      Also I don't think there will be any draw tonight...we will either win or get shithoused into a loss.

      Got to play better tonight. A better team would have punished us on Sunday and whilst Burnley might not be miles better than WBA they still have a few handy attackers including Wood who is in good form.

      I'd be really tempted to drop Fabinho back into midfield for this one but only if Milner's fit to come into the midfield.

      Never say never. Prior to last week, regarding a Liverpool goalkeeper scoring a headed winner can be easily overlooked. Odds against, but the odd chance still exists...

      With the injury list we've had, it's incredible we're even in the mix. The bottle and the last ounce of energy the lads have found in the past month or so is unbelievable.

      Disagree on Fab though, he is far too valuable in mid and we win games when he plays there, simple as. I think he can do enough to organise and guide Williams from defensive mid position. I'd take a blunder from Williams if it means Fab allows full backs to bomb on and provide for the front three. When he plays defence, midfield is too exposed and full backs end up defending far more than attacking. Everyone knows what a class defensive midfielder Fab is, but I don't think we truly appreciate just how integral he is to the system Klopp has set up.

      Whatever happens, I don't think my hear rate can take this level of anxiety week in week out.

      Can't for the life of me understand why some of you would put Fabinho back as CB, have you all lost your minds, or bottle,  it's f***in Burnley and we are Liverpool, we're miles better than them, yes it'll be tough, one of the toughest but even so, putting Fabinho in as CB is admitting we're worried about their attack,  and it makes us weaker, crazy decision if that happens,

      Our quality will be the difference,  and we should take the game to them, dominate them and make sure they chase shadows, I want us zipping the ball about and attack attack attack at will, if we lose the odd goal so be it but we could score 4, sitting back and let them drag us down to their level spells disaster imo, 

      They are safe, nothing in it for them except pride and the chance to put one over on us, so lets deflate their balloon and score within  the first 10 and they won't fancy the fight never mind trying to do us !


      LETS FUCKIN DO THIS  !!!!!!!!

      Don’t believe it’s apt in a moment like this to start adjusting the team too much to counter Burnley’s shithouse tactics.

      Play our best players in their best positions and if we dominate the ball and press the f*ck out of them with enough determination and perseverance the chances will come and the goals should flow.

      Been trying to convince myself that whatever will be will be and whatever the consequences are we'll face it when it happens. But just nervous as hell now so really I have just been fooling myself.  As nervous as a cup final or title decider
