      Last night ... allbeit against a toothless wolves, was certainly a step in the right direction. There was alot of positives to take from the game and hopefully carry into this one.

      I'm torn between our 433 and 4231 for this game. Chelsea have quite abit of pace in their ranks.

                                     Alisson

      Milner         Gomez           konate     Robertson

                         Thiago            Bajcetic
                                       Keita

              Salah              Nunez              Gapko

      Providing Nunez is fit. Harsh on Harvey but great to have from the bench.

      Kellerher
      Matip
      Tsimikas
      Trent
      Fabinho
      Henderson
      Elliott
      Jones
      Doak

      Which means I'm struggling to find a place on the bench for Fabio let alone Chamberlain. Imagine when Bob, Diaz, Jota come back.

      The big decisions will be obviously about the midfield. Bajcetic threw his hat into the ring and he is now a serious consideration. Q. mark over Thiago's work rate. Fancy dan on the ball, sees a pass but he's losing a bit of mobility.

      Fabinho is a genuine holding player.It's his job to put out fires etc but his mobility has dropped off as well. Hendo still a willing runner but just starting to go a bit. But it's not a given that Klopp will put Bajcetic in. One good performance against a poor Wolves team might not put him in front of the usual suspects. Also there is Milly. Put in an impressive 60 mins or so.

      Whoever gets the nod has to win the ball and release the pace boys quicker.  Build up as well need to quicken up. The skill players can't get the drop on anybody if the defense dwell on the ball.

      Important game with both sides struggling to find any real form, through injuries. A must win game for the Reds to further boost morale, After last night's improved performance against Wolves.

      Probably the biggest question for Jürgen as he chooses his XI is whether or not to include Mohammed Salah. I mean a few months ago I would have thought he was maybe the first name on the team sheet, but if form has anything to do with selection (rather than reputation, contracts, etc.), Mo has to be a serious doubt.

      Sure the availability of others, including whether Nunez the havoc-wreaker can go from the start, will be a part of the decision, but Mo is overdue to have a really good game for us.

      I would insert Henderson to the XI for his experience and also to guide Bajcetic through the match. Keita will defiantly be introduced at around 60th minute.

      Come on Reds.

      Trent with milner in front. But I reckon he will go back to Hendo for that position.

      Id defo like to keep Elliott up front, move Salah central or left if Nunez is fit.

      Bajcetic keeps his place too I reckon, 60mins with Fab a 30min sub.

      All these guys that have been overplayed for 12 months or so need to be given a break, let the younger guys do the heavy lifting for a while.

      Once we have all of the front lads fit & firing, Im sure Salah could be rotated more. Man needs a break. Right now as Ive noted above maybe just move him about a bit.

      So looking ahead to Chelsea. Think they’ve got as many injuries as us, and their new signing is suspended. They’re also not doing as well as expected. Piss poor in fact.
      Not sure if they will currently offer more than wolves did. So unsure on how many youngsters we could use.
      Think we may need to resort to a few more ‘top players’
      for this at least  least to start, then haul them off if they can’t up their game. And I say top players reservedly.
      Think we should win it, and maybe the crowd can help, but first of all we gotta give them something to cheer.
      Think I’ll go for a brave 2:0 to the red men.
      I hear Nunez will be fit, and if so, I’m sure he’ll create chance for himself or assists.

      Try Lime Street. Most Bus/Train stations have them from my experience. It's what we used in Bergamo a few years back. Storage locker at the Bus Station

      Not really. Makes a big difference to have a player at right back who can actually defend. A player who supports his centre half ... who is always in position, is dogged and determined. Against city he was excellent and defensively we were as on it as we've been this season.

      Put trent back in and we're back to the usual chaos ... his jogging back miles out of position and daydreaming for pretty much most of the game. Bar the odd pass I don't think trent offers much these days.

      Milner shows it can be done ... as does Robbo on the other side. Trent needs to work harder .... he wouldn't be getting in if it were up to me. We can't be picking players based off name. Trent is a liability defensively and his attacking game doesn't make up for it currently.

      If we're going to get out of this rut and find some solidity and a base to build from then milner currently plays right back for me. I'd love to see what Ramsay can do ... is he injured again? I'm not sure.

      If Nunez and Bajcetic are fit to start:

      Alisson; Trent, Matip, Konate, Robbo; Bajcetic, Keita, Thiago; Elliott, Salah, Nunez.

      I suspect we will see Fabinho, Henderson and Gakpo in place of Bajcetic, Keita and Elliott though.

      The jury is still obviously out on Gakpo. As for Elliott he has had his critics and he's still a work in progress. He can be very effective but in some games he looks way short of the required standard. Diaz and Jota are taking an age to get fit.

      My front 3 would be..Mo..Darwin..Gakpo.

      Yes but is that Elliott in midfield or Elliott playing forward.

      After Tuesday night, he deserves to start.

      Could go Elliott, Fabinho..Hendo or Thiago. Attacking front 6 of Mo, Darwin,Gakpo,Elliott,Fabinho,Hendo. Elliott making up the extra man could make a difference. We have to smash somebody from the off, no more of these false starts.

      The only other consideration if Elliott starts in mid is to play Milner at RB. Trent backed up by Elliott hasn't really worked very well. Bajcetic is in contention, but there's no rush so bench it is.

      Does Keita come in for Hendo...well Keita even though he's hobbled through his contract is not a lost cause and I think he might be offered a year with the option of a 2nd depending on his fitness.

      He's only 27 and if he stays fit for the rest of this season I would offer him a contract but he might be looking for 3 years and there may well be a few clubs willing to offer him that.

      If Nunez is fit, swap him for Gakpo.

      No, drop Elliott and insert him around 60th minute. He needs to gel so he needs minutes.

      Needs a break? He just had the whole World Cup off.

      Yea true.

      But in general he has played almost every minute of every game for 5 years or some such. He is a machine all the same so probably would say he is ok, but im sure Klopp and co would think it would be good to rotate him now and again.

      Yes but is that Elliott in midfield or Elliott playing forward.

      After Tuesday night, he deserves to start.

      Elliott cant go back into MF, he's much better further forward.

      Good performance in midweek, now we need to bring the same to the league games, and we really really do need to win this, get some confidence going, and build some momentum…..good time to play these Cnuts…this particular version of plasticity are in some kind of transitional void where there stuck between Tuchel’s misfits and Potters hope to be’s,

      Jürgen will probably refer to type and have the same old tired legs, but I’m hoping he sticks with a younger more energetic midfield, no Milner please two games in 4 days is a non starter, hoping Nunez returns and gives us options up top, ……


                                              Alisson
                                Trent   Matip  Konate  Robbo(c)
                                     Bajcetic      Thiago
                                  Salah.     Keita     Gakpo
                                     Nuunnneezzzzzzzzz

      Bench….Kelleher, Gomez, Fabinho, Jones, Carvalho, Hendo, Elliot, Doak, Kostas, Liddle


      Jürgen can only work with what he has at his disposal at any given time, not ideal as we’ve all been witnessing , but he need’s to shuffle the pack to find a solution, we need three points anything else won’t be good enough, Simples !!

      He’s taking up wages and squad space. Sadly he’s unreliable and we need stronger stuff.

      Don't mind naby lad staying if its as suspected a pay per play contract.

      But I suspect he wants to be gone, and go play somewhere sunny. or Germany where his pal mane is.

      haha doon't worry mate. The fully fit Naby Keita would not exist for more than few weeks. That is as sure as the sun in the morning.

      This game I would interest to watch that Chelsea new signing Mudryk as I quite like him (by just watchung clips of him ;D) and I'm quietly hope LFC get him but we got in Gakpo instead.

      Klopp has some big decisions to make. The only way Bajcetic starts is if Fabinho sits out and I feel the latter deserves to start going by his mature performance against Wolves. Can Fab and Baj start in a midfield 3?? Thiago has to start and I think Keita proved his fitness against Wolves and had a solid game so he starts for me. So a midfield of
      Bajcetic
      Thiago
      Keita

      Nunez (left)
      Salah (up top)
      Elliott (right)

      Just to note; Nunez and Elliott to track back and work there socks of creating a mid 5 when required.

      Hope Bajcetic and Elliott start. Would like to see Mo central and Nunez out left, Gakpo for later in the game. I'd start Thiago but not sure about the other midfield spot tbh as they've all played themselves into a bit of a muddle. Keita possibly because he is fit, energetic and had a decent game on Tuesday. Trent starts for me as would Matip.

      These youtube and tiktok fans are just doing what people do in forums after a win or loss so don't really get the hate, when it's all on video it comes across badly which it's bound to. Saying they should be burnt is a really odd and evil thing to say, I don't get how that even pops into anyone's mind to write out, also there aren't enough seats in Anfield for us all to be there and be a cherished lucky season ticket holder, nor does everyone have the money for such luxury either.
       Players who were on form last game should play this one, sick of picking the same names and them strolling around like they're on holiday, no excuses, they know the drill by now after how many training sessions under Klopp? Thousand+, sick of the apathy and mundane football, can't counter attack, can't press, can't hold the ball and pass it around for most of this season, time to see some nice football.

      Should be an interesting day.
      Thought we were much better in the final 3rd with pressing against Wolves. Elliot/Carvahlo/Gapko closed guys down and linked up pretty well.
      Just feel Nunez/Salah/Other hasn't been closing enough or linking that well. Nunez is fast and causes problems, but the link up hasn't been great.
      But don't see any way Salah/Nunez don't start the match.
      Need a LOT more from Mo, even when he came on against Wolves he barely touched the ball and when he did didn't do anything with it.
      If we can press as well as in last game, least takes some pressure off the stretched midfield.

      More worried about the game than the TikTok tw*ts.

      This clearly is a must win.
      Chavs have some decent players, but like us, lots of injuries. They can still turn it on in small moments, so we need to be on it 100% from everyone.
      No passengers today, and anyone lacking effort needs hooking.
      We need everyone to be full of energy today, and press these really hard. Can’t allow them to get any rythm going, and we have to put away all the chances we create.
      I’m nervous as f**k because we can’t aford to lose.
      Hope the Kop get behind the lads from the start. Being at home should help if the crowd are vocal.
      Gone for 3-1 but still very apprehensive.
      Hope whoever Jürgen starts realises it’s a must win

      Is Bobby still out with his 3 month slight knock?

      Expect a tight fought first half, We just nick it 1-0. "2nd half come under bit of pressure but Darwin gets the drop on them 2-0..then Mo rounds off in the 86th minute for 3-0.

      As it happens Azpilicueta clocks up 500 for them.

      Just can't for the life of me see us keeping a clean sheet.  Not very confident right now plus even when we were playing well I don't remember these Saturday lunchtime kick offs being pleasant on the eye.

      Hope Nunez is 'fit' if he starts and not just taking a chance with him.  We can't afford any of our 11 not being 100%.

      I think Bajcetic deserves a start alongside Thiago today to give us some legs in midfield and creativity, Also like to see Konate and Gomez partnership for some pace ,feeling confident for a 2-0 today !
