      PreMatch : Liverpool v Fulham : Wednesday May 3rd, 8pm

      This will be our game in hand over Spurs so imperative we get the win.

      Seems like Jota is a doubt so will it be Nunez or will Diaz start as the left wing.

      Also looks like Konate and Matip are rotating, probably a good idea having to cover acres of space with Trent roving forward.

      I imagine Hendo will be back for this after his rest at the weekend.

      Should have too much up front for these even if they cause us problems with our dodgy midfield and defence.

      I'd go with Mo, Nunez and Diaz up front. Give Nunez a game. Gakpo has done well and so has Nunez. And I would keep Elliott in mid, backing up Mo.

      Can't see anything other than a win. We may make it harder than it has to be, but we should be scoring pretty easily against them. Bring in Nunez to start and let him run at them over and over for awhile then sub him for Diaz and let him take a turn.

      In light of the injuries and age of the mid squad, add to that the injury to Bajcetic, it's no surprise the boss turned to Trent to play this dual role. Possibly Klopp's last throw of the midfield dice.

      It has worked although Spurs did exploit the space vacated by Trent once or twice. Still it does give us an extra attacking mid backing Mo up. Hendo has played there but it's not really his bag. It's a position Elliott has played, not made it his own but has done ok at times. I think Elliott should get the nod again tonight.

      yea, will be some rotation due to knock and fitness. but klopp wont change too much I reckon if he can help it.

      Assume we need to find a stream tonight or IPTV ?

      No doubt, we will find some way to make things difficult for ourselves against a decent Fulham side. Gone for a 2  1 win for the Reds, also believe Nunez should start the game.

      Tiago not involved. Out for the season with a hip problem. 🤷‍♂️
      Two games was it 😱

      Strangely enough, I think Fulham will offer more than spurs, at least for the first half.

      Gone for 2-0 myself

                    Ally
      TAA Konate/Matip VVD Kostas
          Fab Hendo Jones
      Salah Gapko Jota/Diaz

      Thought Robbo was poor last time out, maybe a run for Kostas
      Hendo back starting. Jones instead of Elliot
      Same up front but would start Jota if available, Nunez from bench if needed
      Hopefully 3 more pts, they're comfortably mid table, no risk of going down, thinking of the beach already

      Everytime someone says this, Kostas comes in and reminds us all why Robbo plays :D

      18 years ago since the best football atmosphere I've ever experienced.  Doubt it's going to quite hit those heights tonight but I think this might be the last midweeker of the season at home.  I'm about 70% confident of three points here.

      Got a draw against us already this season and both times against City they've only lost by the goal so I'd say they aren't going to in the Leeds/Man U category of a walkover.

      This one obviously takes me back to the opening day. We were absolutely dreadful and lucky to get out with a point. I remember van dijk just coasting ... backing off ... gave a pen away. Fab was awful .... yeah let's not dwell. Nunez came off the bench and scored straight away. Jota won't be in tonight so let's hope he does it again. Think I'd go with Diaz, Nunez and Salah front 3 tonight.

      Tonight will be a tough game. All I'm interested in is the 3 points. A nice controlled 2-0 will do me. Knock the ball around ... do our jobs.
