      Newcastle United 0-1 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      Apr 30, 2022 11:30:43 am







      St. James' Park hosting the Mighty Reds





      Starting XI: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Mane, Diaz, Jota.

      Subs: Kelleher, Fabinho, Konate, Thiago, Salah, Jones, Tsimikas, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.

      Liverpool make five changes for this afternoon’s clash with Newcastle United.

      Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are named in defence at St James’ Park, while James Milner and Naby Keita come back into midfield.

      Meanwhile, Diogo Jota returns in attack, but Divock Origi is ruled out of the squad due to illness not related to COVID-19.

      Really hate these early kick offs, well, unless we win. Hopefully the pressure is off us straight away this round of fixtures.

      Diaz, Mane and Jota front 3 with Mo having played full 90 on Wednesday?

      Hopefully my score prediction is just as accurate.

      Salah was due a rest.

      A wee bit nervous with they midfield if I'm brutally honest but still a game we should win even though they're in good from.

      He dropped and rotated so many players. Hope his plan works, who am I to question him.

      At least, they are on the bench as plan B.

      Bit surprised by the starting eleven, but understandable given how quick the games are coming.

      2-0 to the Redmen.

      Milner in, Jota in. Let’s do this - no Fabinho which is scary

      Hopefully we get a comfortable position in this game and we don’t need to bring Salah on, give him a full 90 rest.

      Completely understand why we have to rotate but that midfield does make me marginally nervous.  I'm sure I will have nothing to worry about.

      Also, wonder what the story is with Elliott?  Know he's on the bench but not seen much of him on the pitch in the last few months.

      We need fresh legs in the no.8 positions, makes sense. Thiago and Fabinho are both going to have big minutes in them next week with Villareal and Spurs.

      Thought we'd rest Robertson for this one instead of Trent, that might mean that Tsimikas still isn't 100%.

      No Origi on the bench is disappointing, he's usually a useful sub if we need to change the complexion of a game.

      Should have enough to win the game if the front 3 can be clinical. All due respect to Salah but Mane-Jota-Diaz are actually our 3 most in-form attackers and they should be a handful for Newcastle.

      He got thrown into the deep end right after coming back from injury, away against Inter, and looked out of form. It's tough for a young player to come back
      into a groove after such a long time out, but it's pretty clear that Klopp doesn't trust him right now with the stakes so high in every single game.

      Were always going to have to rotate and to be fair it's only Milner and Joe who have had limited minutes.  Weapons on the bench if required

      Understand we need to rotate but changing our best two midfielders, best attacker and Trent in the same game seems a lot.

      Don't think it will be pretty today, just need to find a way to grind out three points.

      No worries here, think that’s a decent team even with Milner in midfield, I think that’s were some are doubting us in the middle..

      3 up front are enough to put shits in anyone...

      Had to rotate but I’m the same, the midfield is not the most creative and with Gomez in we are very much relying on the front three to do the business. Trent and Salah were due a rest though they have played so many minutes recently. This kit have their tails up at the minute so they may leave a bit of space in behind which will suit us

      Big call by any standards.Not risk free. Nobody disrespects Milner but it's a mid 3 that have hardly played together. Mane probably play down the right with Gomez.

      Diaz...cuts in...top corner..0-1..

      Milner and Hendo have played in the same 3 as each other many times, and Keita has been at the club 3/4 years now so the midfield 3 isn’t unfamiliar at all.

      Hate it when Fab doesn't play, today feels like a huge day with us playing first. Could be pivotal.
