      Liverpool 3-3 Benfica: In game and Post Match discussion
      Apr 13, 2022 06:42:14 pm




      Kop mosaic all set at Anfield for this evening's game to mark the 33rd anniversary of Hillsborough and remember the 97. Thank you to Andy and all the volunteers who placed over 12,000 cards this morning.







      Starting XI: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Konate, Tsimikas, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Diaz, Jota, Firmino.

      Subs: Kelleher, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Thiago, Mane, Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Robertson, Origi, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.

      Liverpool make seven changes for this evening’s Champions League quarter-final, second-leg clash with Benfica.

      Joe Gomez, Ibrahima Konate and Kostas Tsimikas come into defence for the Reds at Anfield, while Naby Keita and James Milner are named in midfield.

      Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino join Diogo Jota in attack.

      Lots of rotation, perhaps more than expected. Disappointed to see Milner start ahead of Jones, Elliott or Ox. He’s just not a starter anymore and we’ll be troubled in the middle because of it.

      Wasn't expecting that many changes to be honest.  Little bit more nervous than I was five minutes ago!! 👀

      Hope it doesn't come back to bite us.

      We should be fine. We have lots of back-up on the bench.

      That was the beauty of the gift we were given by drawing Benfica. The ability to put us in a comfortable position in the first leg so that we could rest some players in the second leg at Anfield. Now it's up to us to take advantage of it.

      Wow, didn't expect that. Though in fairness Fabinho at least looked like he needed a rest after the weekend.
      Proper options to start these days and still get a job done.
      Just hope the team aren't as relaxed about this as me.

      Usually prefer to go strong and with 5 runs take people off if possible when the job is done

      Hendo and Milner in midfield and we tend to struggle.

      Should still have enough to get past these.

      Not too fussed about all the changes but not so sure about Hendo and Milly together in midfield. Not a big fan of that.

      Team looks strong enough except for as mentioned Hendo and Milner in the middle. It never works and we get overrun every time.

      Let’s hope we can keep it calm, grab a goal and put this tie to bed in the first half.

      A little worried about Milly being there from the start. Pace is not his strogest attribute is it?!
      And lately Hendo hasn't managed many full 90's - so maybe 2 changes there to rest aging legs at some point?
      Even so we should keep our ship on course for the semis..... as long as the defence are switched on! Big shout a new back 4 together at this stage of the comp but in Kloppy I trust!

      As surprised as everyone else, knew Jürgen would shuffle but not to this extent, anyhoo it won’t matter too much, performance not too important just get the job done, those key players like Mo, Virgil, Robbo Trent etc all need a break, especially Mo, probably why he’s been off kilter, too many games what with Afcon, and our own mad schedule, anyhoo back to tonight I think we got enough in that starting X1 to do the business, and we have the ammo on the bench just in case.

      Lot of changes but still a strong team. Big surprise tho that VVD is rested. But it has to be freshened up given the intensity of the next few games. Still have to be 100% focused.Will it backfire...Nah..
