      I'd agree with you usually, consistency is always preferred, but with Virg, Gomez and Matip all coming off long lay offs I do think they need to be managed properly.

      Also the problems defensively against Brentford were not just down to the defensive, I think we were poor off the ball all over the pitch.

      yup

      A win away from home would set us up nicely going into a very difficult run of games after international break which include the two vs Athletico. I know we have had recent success away to Porto but still be a tough place to play we will need to be at our best.

      As far as line-up tough call but I can see more changes rolling and maybe see Klopp go with

      I’m a law of averages type of person and Porto will want revenge, worried about this one. They’re due a win against us!

      I fancy us, the brentford game was a kick up the arse for the defence especially.

      went for a 3-0 to the mighty reds.

      There is zero chance Jürgen will do this, but here's my take:

      Ali
      Gomez Konate VVD Kostas
      Milly Fab Jones
      Origi Bobby Taki

      I very much dislike Gomez at right back, but he needs the game time, and that would give Konate a chance to play alongside VVD.
      If the game goes our way, we could take VVD and Milly off around the hour, and bring Neco in while switching Gomez to the centre.

      Good point. Although the CB's take the most blame for 3 goals against, I thought the biggest issue was our inability to win the 2nd balls after aerial challenges. Matip and Van Dijk would normally challenge for and win the initial headers, but the ball would drop into pockets between the CB's and our midfielders, and our midfielders simply didn't pick enough of those balls up.

      This was an easy problem to see and even I suggested at halftime to drop Henderson deeper into a 4231 to get another body closer to the CB's and Fabinho to help in that area. Klopp eventually did this but with a weird timing when Jones gave us the lead again. I suspect that we'd have done a lot better with winning second balls had we had Keita on the pitch as that is one of his strengths.

      Unfortunate no Trent for this game. Club has been quiet about it so hopefully is just precautionary and he’s ready for the weekend.

      My guess is Milly fills in at RB.

      F**k me, I couldn't tell you anything about those matches from last season - bar a few bits from the Madrid game and the fact Jota scored a hatful against Atalanta.

      Had no idea we even played Midtylland. What the f**k happened there? 😂

      That game was so frustrating. Not that we played well but all 3 goals were basic individual errors. No one pressed Modric who had all day and launched the long pass for the first, Trent with the unbelievable header to put the Real player through when the easy play was to clear it out for a throw in. Then Fab gets skinned and Alisson poor covering his near post for the 3rd. Just terrible.

      I'd imagine they'd want to make it a tighter match than when we battered them there in 2018 and 2019.

                                    Ali

      Milner             Konate         Virgil          Robertson


             Hendo               Fab               Jones
