      Pre Match: Liverpool v Napoli Tues 1st Nov 20:00 KO

      Both teams through the group stages, not sure if we will make massive changes, but I’m sure we will make a few. Napoli are likely to do the same:

      Alisson

      Alexander-Arnold
      Gomez
      Konate
      Tsimikas

      Jones
      Henderson (c)
      Milner

      Salah
      Nunez
      Carvalho

      Subs:

      Kelleher (GK)
      Adrian (GK)
      Ramsay
      Van Dijk
      Phillips
      Robertson
      Fabinho
      Thiago
      Elliott
      Bajcetic
      Clark
      Firmino

      Ineligible:

      Keita
      Oxlade-Chamberlain

      Injured:

      Matip
      Arthur
      Diaz
      Jota

      I’d give Virg, Robbo, Fab and Bobby a rest, and there’s not a lot of point risking Thiago, save him for Spurs.

      Not sure about a prediction for this, just want a decent performance from our whole team.

      Tough choice now


      Do you rest players or see if they can play their way in form

      I would go


      Alisson

      Gomez
      Konate
      VVD
      Kostas

      Henderson
      Fabinho
      Jones

      Carvahlo
      Nunez
      Salah

      How many goals do we need to come top of the group? I don't think we will try to get a big score, need to rest a few and get back to basics of good defending. Can't afford to lose another game, mainly for player confidence. 4-2-3-1 is my preference, mainly because of the players we are missing.

      Ali
      Trent, Gomez, Konate, Robbo
      Hendo, Milner
      Elliot, Salah, Carvalho
      Nunez

      A few changes in second half.

      Find a system that suits and stick with all the changing is confusing the players.

      And stop shoe horning Elliot into central midfield.

      It's hard to know where to start, the weekend was so demoralising, together with having already qualified, it's hard to generate any enthusiasm for this fixture. Hopefully feel the passion closer to kickoff.

      I'm in two minds over this game, on the one hand I want a 'full strength' team, get out there as if qualification depends on it and show the fans etc what it means to play for this club.

      On the other hand, take no more injury risks, it's a dead rubber effectively, compete but with a small 'c'.

      The other nark is over VVD. The ' Mr.Cool' persona is starting to wear a bit thin. He has escaped the flak that has been flying about, Trent & Joe have been the target but on Saturday he was atrocious, flat footed, lethargic even, bordering on Maguire's 'sloth' impression. Get your finger out lad.

       Probably had plum duff for his tea.

      For this game I only care about wanting to see Nunez start.

      As he has been able to score consistently recently let's help him keep it going, momentum is everything as is confidence.

      Will be good to see if a makeshift side can show the old heads exactly what is needed to play the system we have, or remind the gaffer and co that maybe for the system to work you need a more mobile midfield.

      Either way I will be watching and supporting, let's get some confidence back!

      It backfired last time we played key players in a dead rubber. I think it was jota that got injured and was out for months:
      Not worth the risk imo.

      It is a dead rubber but he's probably thinking I want this put right and nobody gets a night off. I agree, if that's his standpoint. Can't trot about the place worrying over injuries. We want to win games and I don't agree with a wholesale stand down.

      Besides the front 3 are not playing for each other and that has to be put right. In interviews they say.." I play for the team" etc well then start doing that.

      Yeah, I'm not a fan. However, knowing Klopp, I wouldn't put it past those two wide midfielders to be pushing further up and almost playing as part of a front four.

      Just gotta give it our all tonight. The Anfield atmosphere will make it intimidating.

      Nothing to play for tonight really except pride cos I can't see us scoring 4 against Napoli with no reply to top the group.

      So as there's an important league game against Spurs on Sunday I can see Jürgen getting the young guns out tonight to give a few of them some Champions League experience whilst he can.

      I just hope whoever plays does so with some pride in the red shirt.

      Come on redmen show us what it means to play for Liverpool football club.
