      We need to have a good result to give us confidence for next Sunday and not to have extra pressure of a bad result.

      YNWA, come on Reds.

      Not gonna lie, I'm not the biggest fan of Mané playing through the middle. Obviously, it's still Sadio, so he'll perform, but he's far more efficient cutting inside from the wings...

      Surprised by the front 3 in that none of them play the middle regularly and the 2 that do are both on the bench.

      Spoilt for Choice I suppose . Mane and Diaz always going to start with not starting last game . Sure will see Jota or Bobby at some point

      Strong team that should get themselves a first leg lead.   Main concern is that I hope Trent is 'ready' ready.  Don't want to see him walking off or suffering a setback with the City game at the weekend.

      Good strong X1 that, and backed by a solid bench, no real surprises given that we have a fully fit squad, not the biggest fan of Mane thru the middle but what the f**k do I know, Jürgen sees something we don’t and it could well be he just wants those three up top, with Mo prolific from the right and Diaz similarly from the left, the bonus is Naby lad in beside Thiago, honestly thought like most that Hendo would be a shoe in, we just need to hope that Naby lasts a good hour at least,

      Remember 5 subs tonight so don’t be surprised to see Gomez on for Trent, then f**k knows, big shout out to big Div, looks like he’s played his last for us, if so good luck to the big fella, he’s already stamped his name in LFC folklore,


      This is such a unique situation to be in, fully fit squad, still in three major comps in the penultimate month of the season, not quite firing yet on all cylinders, but we will, full of confidence, a mentality second to none, we have momentum, we’re on a winning streak apart from Inter, and we have a aura about us that strikes the fear into anyone who dares to take us on, it’s just F**kin Brilliant to be a Red right now,  i don’t think in all the years I’ve had the privilege of watching Liverpool we have been in a better shape than we are right now,

      Enjoy this next few weeks ppl cos we might never see us in such a position again for years, it makes  my heart burst with pride, fookin filling up here 😂


      CMON REDMEN!!!

      Boss team ,boss bench 5 subs tonight so
      I can see plenty of rotation with Sunday’s game & can see  both Thiago & hendo coming off at some point as I think they’ll both start Sunday along with fabinho.

      Well this is the midfield a lot of people have been wanting to see for a while. Will be interesting to see how they perform together.
