      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.

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

      NB: Team no longer available

      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.

      This is probably what Jürgen will do, but Hendo is another one who needs to step up his performance and energy.

      If Nunez is fit, swap him for Gakpo.

      Would you play Mo in the center or Nunez?

      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.

      Nah I reckon Gakpo will be on the bench. I'd start Elliott ahead of him.

      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.

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

      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.

      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 !!

      If he stays fit?
      Get rid.
      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.

      I had such high hopes for him. I don’t dislike the chap. But I won’t miss him one bit.
      I’d rather we had something who had less ability but was available most games.

      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.
