I'm actually feeling pretty confident that we are going to smash them. They don't have any forwards that should trouble our starting defense.
I'd stick Bobby and let Jota come off the bench. Curtis-Fab-Hendo midfield for me. Trent-Matip-Virg-Robbo will do it for the back line. Team pretty much picks itself. Going to be nice to pick up these 3 points.
It's a good job they don't have any forwards that will trouble our defence as you put it.
In the real world they got about 7/8 players in their starting lineup who have got goals in them. They can hurt our defence from anywhere on the pitch.
Salah aside I'm not sure were a regular supply of goals/creativity is coming from.
So with that said I'd stick with Jones in midfield over keita for some creativity/goal threat/last 90 minutes etc and I'd stick with Jota in attack. He's getting in the right positions ... but missing the chances as is mane currently. No issue if he starts bobby though.
We will have to be perfect in this game. They arnt vulnerable at the back like in previous visits. After a spend of 1/2 billion it looks like they have the defence sorted. They will always create and they will always score.
I'd take a point now and move on if I'm honest as much as I'd love the 3.
Tough game ... a must not lose if we have aspirations of challenging them for the title.
So to sum up ... milner at rb and same as midweek for me.
