      Toss up between Jota or Nunez up top. Both in good form. Both can make big impacts off the bench second half.

      think Darwin will blow a fuse if he doesnt start he simply has to start. Luis on the Left Mo on the right Darwin in the middle that is a frightening fast counter attack. Think we are really going to do these and put them in their box.

      Think everyone is thinking the same and that Nunez will be in from the start, however I’m not so sure he will be, he deserves to be definitely but does Jürgen see it  the same way?

      He’ll obviously make the ultimate decision of course but don’t be surprised if he plays the same starting X1 V Toon, I won’t be,

      Nunez is a phenomenon, he’ll one day be every bit as good as that ugly blonde fella plying his trade with that ugly corrupt entity over in Eastlands,
      I just got a feeling Klopp will hold him back again and play Diaz, Gakpo, & Mo, with Macca & Szloboslai in behind, Endo DM, Matip & Gomez in as CB’s with Trent & Robbo attacking the flanks, and the best keeper in the world in between the sticks,

      I could be entirely wrong but I don’t think Jürgen will change it too much if at all, yes Darwin’s face will probably trip him but he has to respect Jürgen’s decision and get over it, his time will come, long hard season and all that!!

      Anyhoo only my opinion which matters not a f***in jot, but we’ll see 😁

      The Red Juggernaut going up a gear !!

                 Ally
      TAA Gomez Matip Robbo
         Elliot Mac Szobo
          Mo Nunez Diaz

      Be interesting to see how the CBs get on, Gomez was really good vs Barcodes so hopefully can continue that form. Looking at that lineup seems a bit nuts to let Philips go on loan.
      TAA will be targeted so needs to concentrate when defending.
      Thought the Newcastle game passed Endo by, so would consider Elliot as starter, though Jürgen could go with Gapko there again. Like Gapko, but needs to impact games more.
      Would give Nunez a start, tough on Jota - but we have 5 good options up front right now which is great.  And Nunez basically got us three points last week with a couple of crackers, v hard to ignore that.

      Villa seem to be one of those teams who know how to cause us problems at the back.
      But we have firepower up front.
      We're coming in off a high and if we can be reasonably solid, have enough threat to get the 3 points.

      If we want Darwin to eventually replace Mo's goals he has to start games and show us he can be who we think he can be.
      The whole team should be frothing at the mouth for tomorrows game after last Sundays antic.
      When we start again after the f***in international freak show we will be playing twice a week so everyone should be playing on a regualr basis but the league is everything this year and I believe we can do it and will do it because of the goals we will score

      Got to start Nunez. If we don’t after those two goals we are absolutely going to kill his confidence.

      Use Jota off the bench where he’s been more effective lately.

      Any chance of a clean sheet win ?
      When was the last time we did that ?

      Gone for a 3  0 win for the Reds against Aston Villa today, despite our leaky defence, which tends to gift soft goals to the opposition. Hope we keep a clean sheet today and score a few goals.

      A bit disappointed the game is not on tv today, at least I will keep out of the pub !

      A bit too soon, but wouldn’t be surprised to see this in the not too distant future, especially vs teams that park the bus;
      Alisson
      Trent   Matip   Gomez   Robbo
      Gravenberch   MacAllister
      Salah    Szobozlai   Diaz
      Nunez

      For Sunday I hope Bajcetic gets a run out. Still feel we’ve got an absolute gem on our hands there we need to ensure still gets opportunities.

      Gravenberch won’t feature this weekend

      Endo

      Dom

      Mo
      Nunez
      Diaz

      Yes that's my choice as well. Nunez has to start. Could be Klopp now sees him as more of an impact sub and that wouldn't be a bad ploy but it could sour Nunez.

      Another big plus this season is Elliott. Looks much stronger and obviously fitter. Has looked lively when he gets a chance. Didn't quite get a settled run and wasn't convincing enough last season but he's starting to mature. Could be the season that makes him a serious player to be reckoned with.

      Mac as a 6 I bet, can’t wait for this. I reckon Nunez gets the nod.
