      Think one of Fab or Thiago will start with Hendo and Jones. Expect Matip ,Jota to start and could be tempted to give Tzimikas a run

      I agree, I think Fabs will come in with Henderson and Jones.

      What's a strong ref? Strong enough to stand up to home crowd pressure? But we're at home. Maybe more a ref who doesn't bottle challenges and makes decisive decisions?

      Quite simply a ref that doesn't fall for their sh*t all the time.

      Pretty sure Thiago will start, he's trained longer than Fab.

      Defo, klopp will go as strong as he thinks he can. We want the win no doubt, but a draw not the end of the world either.

      I think probably Sub for both, coming on for last 20 or sooner if needed.

      We dont even know what fabs injury was, if it was just a nock and not muscle he may well be fitter than we think ?

      Difficult to predict a result tonight will mid field injuries. Maybe a narrow 2  1 win for the Reds, simply because I am bias !!

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would rest Robertson and Salah, would give Matip this one because he did not deserve to be dropped. I may be mad but he should be rested for the weekend and these b***ard like to play the man rather than the ball.

      I would skip Fab and Thiago for this one too because they are physically tough and you need to be 100% for this game. Thiago for sure, maybe Fabinho.

      it is said that the secret to a happy life is having something worthwhile to get out of bed for, European Matchday....it doesnt get much more enjoyable than that. A day of anticipation hoping for a night to remember. No doubt the lads will make us suffer but they never let us down.
      Lets hope Simone burst a vessel in his anger at our 4th goal going in before half time.

      Got to admit I'm not overly confident in tonight's result. 

      First of all - we don't need a result here.  Atletico probably do.  Secondly - midfield issues.  I'd be amazed if one of the three we had left aren't playing carrying a minor knock. 

      And finally - I expect if any of the other five midfielders are 'close' to a comeback then Klopp won't risk them ahead of the more important game this week at the weekend.

      As ever, I will be more than happy to chew on my own words when Liverpool prove me wrong.   Looking at it right now though I'd expect Atletico to shade it by a goal.  I hope the fans going tonight put in a performance to help the reds into the next round!

      mate with the Crowd in full flow we could play in midfield and still win. The extra few % makes avg players world beaters I think they are more than worried about facing us and we know what games they will want to play this is a very experienced group of players now its another European night and win for me. Thiago and Fab could both be available according to some reports whilst they have quite a few injured or banned.

      I do think Fabinho and Thiago will start alongside Hendo until we can establish control in the middle of the park but will be subbed 15-20 mins to go with Ox and Curtis ,really hope the fans get behind the lads and make Simeone uncomfortable

      particularly as he has said that he won't shake Klopp's hand this game either.
