      So for thursdays game, were defo missing Salah, Mane & Naby lad due to AFCON.

      Then Elliott, Thiago & Origi are all still injured.

      Possibly Trent (Covid)

      So should be able to field a pretty strong team, something like this ?

      -------------- Allison -----------------
      - Williams - Konate - VVD - Robbo -
      ---------------- Fab ------------------
      ----- Hendo ----------- Jones\Taki--
      ------- OX ---- Bobbi ---- Jota ------

      Yeah looks good mate

      Any news on Robbo? Tackle on him yesterday was a heavy one that forced him off

      Wouldn’t use Taki in midfield, I’d play him where Chambo is in your line up to get him some rhythm up there for next few weeks

      Not heard anything about robbo, knowing hime he will be fine, seems to get over knocks really quickly. ;D

      Aye Taki and ox can change positions, all depends how klopp sees it.

                                        Kellerher

      Trent/Williams   Vvd            Konate         Robertson

                  Henderson     Fabinho    Chamberlain

          Minamino               Firmino                      Jota

      Pretty much impossible to know who is available apart from the Afcon players and long term injured.

      How in the world is Divock still injured? was it in training? because i don't remember him getting any knocks last time he played.

      Hopefully Gordon makes the bench and gets some minutes. Ditto Morton.

      Just into Tuesday so match still nearly 3 days away.
      No idea who will or won’t be available by then.
      Just go as strong as poss from who’s available, get it won, then give the kids a few minutes !

      No doubt arse will go low block and try counter, hooding to keep our score down for the return.
      Think it’s gonna be a difficult game myself, but confident we’ll win it. Just not too many kids Jürgen, they will probably go full strength as it’s their only trophy chance now.
      COME ON YOU RED MEN !

      They look lost in the MF without Partey and Xhaka. Partey gone to Africa and Xhaka missed with injury and covid Sunday. Xhaka isn't nearly as good as Partey, but he does bring their young MF experience. The good thing if he plays is you always know you're one second away from him having a brain fart. The MF Lovern.

      Smith Rowe and Tomiatsu may miss too. With all the changes it could make the game very unpredictable.

      Redmen 3-1 win

      Joe Gomez was shockingly bad last time I remember him playing. I don't know if it's rust or his injuries have just done him in, but I'd say he is facing a battle tk save his career at the moment, at least in terms of playing at the highest level. Sorry to see it, but I would have to see major improvement on the training ground before he's picked again for Liverpool.

      Is this the 2nd time that Trent has covid?

      Think it's been speculated that most of our "Covid positive" players were false positives, in fact I read that some clubs were wanting an investigation done because they were implying the club were basically lying about players that were actually positive. Who knows but I don't think Trent has Covid from as much as you can get from official sources.

      I would agree wholeheartedly but isn't he out of contract this summer? If so, whatever we can get is probably going to be a good deal. Other than letting go striker cover that we likely will need.

      I would agree wholeheartedly but isn't he out of contract this summer? If so, whatever we can get is probably going to be a good deal. Other than letting go striker cover that we likely will need.

      Club has the option to extend his contract. Whether that's through number of games (could be why he's mysteriously injured *just saying*) or whether that's through just being able to stick a year on the contract is what isn't known.

      25m apparently  . I spoke to my mate who is a Burnley fan who said he would drive him there himself for that money

      Release clause it seems

      Takes away one of Burnley’s main goal threads

      But £25mil - that’s a genuis clause and mental that someone has paid it

      Newcastle will have to get used to that I am afraid every player they bid for will be min 10mill above at least what they are realistically worth

      That wasn't what happened here. They've paid his release clause so Burnley had no choice to accept or reject.

      Apparently that is their strategy this window to look at players with release clauses.

      Back to ourselves i really hope we go as strong as possible for this game. Could be our best shot at a trophy, we are out of the title picture and at this stage reasonably comfortable for a top 4 finish.

      If we don't have a proper crack at this then we are playing the season with only the Champions League in mind.

      These games sometimes can produce a few goals. As ever going for a Reds win, by a 2 goal margin.

      Brentford on Sunday, but would still go as strong for this as we can. A semi is a semi.
      We're missing players and so are they - but think we're missing bigger players than them, so could be tough.
      Interesting to see who we can put out/who Jürgen goes with.

      Is Konate ahead of Matip now in the strongest XI?
      Good timing if both Bob and Taki available now, with Mo and Mane away.
      Heard Robbo had a knock or something so maybe Kostas might be in, not sure.
      But yeah, strong as we can I hope, didn't realise so many of the big names were back,

      So it’s the line up above with Matip instead of Konate

      Konate is doing well though, starting to push Matip.
      Who'd have thought Matip would have such an injury free run.
