      Quarter final of the league cup up next.

      With the breaking news that the  prem league clubs have agreed to proceed with the fixtures over Christmas what possible line up can we expect here?

      Will either side gave any desire to go with any player who might play a role in any game up yo the weekend of the FA cup

      Expect to see some debuts here

      The way Jürgen has been talking about struggling to meet the Xmas PL match commitments, could see him playing even more kids in the EFL.

      Super annoying. Was really looking forward to advancing into the se.is and regaining our lead of most titles won in this competition. Klopp never prioritizes these competition, and the Prem will force his hand even more so now......

      Can Robbo play, or is this one his banned games?

      Would any of you put a stronger rotated side out and roll the dice against poor form Leeds at home on boxing day?

      One of the 3 games he is banned for. But this one is irrelevant really, he was never going to play this match anyway so essentially it's only 2 games he will be missing.

      Start with the 9on the bench from Sunday and go from there. I guess Divock is still out?

      But Taki, Neco, Kelleher, Ox, Bobby, Joe Gomez should all play.

      Like someone about said I'm annoyed with the circumstances around this game now as I'd hoped we could be reasonably strong with the aim of getting to the semis.

      We will still have that aim but no way I can see anything other than the kids playing in this game now.

      We could sill play a semi decent team. A lot of players need minutes.

      Kelleher
      William
      Tsimikas
      Phillips
      Gomez

      Morton
      Keita possibly
      Firmino possibly
      Minamino

      I’m still hoping for a win. 4-3.

      No Kostas for me, Id keep him fresh for Leeds and Leicester in the league.

      Kelleher

      Bradley
      Joe
      Nat
      Neco

      Tyler
      Ox
      Bonnar- Dixon

      Taki
      Bobby
      Kaide

      Maybe something like that? Some of the guys who watch the young lads more regularly then I would might suggest better options then Bonnar-Dixon and Gordan, or another left back and let Neco play mid

      All depends on fitness of covid lads and whether they are available.

      Should be an interesting team, boths squads suffering.

      Will depend on covid returnees if at all and whether returning injured players can take to the field, assuming the above happens we could field a pretty strong X1, so it's possible we could see something like this.....

      ..............Kelleher
      Neco Gomez Virgil Kostas
                      Fabinho
            Hendo              Keita
           Taki    Divock    Bobby

      Or we could see this......

                              Kelleher
             Neco  Gomez   Konate  Kostas
                        Oxlade    Milner
                                 Keita
              Gordon    Bobby    Minamino

      If I'm totally honest I'm not too bothered we  could do with resting a few regulars anyway,  whoever plays will give their all and that's all we can ask of them.

      Was waiting for the presser before I predicted the team, I can see us going as strong as possible with a few youngsters on the bench:

      Kelleher

      Williams
      Gomez
      Konate
      Tsimikas

      Oxlade-Chamberlain
      Morton
      Milner (c)

      Salah
      Firmino
      Mane

      Subs:

      Pitaluga
      Bradley
      Quansah
      Beck
      Keita
      Gordon
      Minamino

      That leaves us with the following players out:

      Rested:

      Alisson
      Alexander-Arnold
      Matip
      Henderson
      Jota

      Suspended:

      Robertson

      Isolating:

      Van Dijk
      Fabinho
      Thiago
      Jones

      Injured:

      Adrian
      Phillips
      Elliott
      Origi

      Will say no to Milner. He wasn't for to play 90 at the weekend and had nothing left at the end.

      Firmino will play, Salah and Mane will be subs I suspect. Backline pretty much picks itself. Milner will play with Ox in midfield as well.

      Keller, Williams, Gomez, Konate, Kostas, Ox, Morton, Milner/Keita, Bobby, Taki, Mane.

      Unless Origi is fit to play, then I'd expect to see him ahead of Mane.
