      Pre-Match: Chelsea v Liverpool (Tue 4 Apr 20:00)
      Apr 03, 2023 01:33:17 pm
      Not for the first time we're faced with a club with a potential new manager bounce?

      Proper mid table clash this. 

      On the basis of that second half spineless display by us on Saturday I am not very confident.  We'll probably see Milner in for Henderson - exciting times!

      No more excuses. Time for most of the players to pull their fingers out of their arses and at least give it 100%. If not for theirselves, do it  for Jürgen.

      I am pretty buoyed by Jürgen hurting, him saying he should not be here except for the past is his way of saying to the players, F***ing sort this sh*t out....this cannot last.

      I think we may see something of a turnaround at last.

               I’d go with one of these two teams:

                       Ali
           Milner Matip VVD Tsimikas
                   
                     Hendo   Fab
           Salah    Bobby   Gakpo
                         Nunez
                     
      Gakpo and Nunez to rotate with it becoming more of a a 442/424 at times. It’s very attacking but our midfield options are sh*t.
         

      Other option:

                       Ali
      Milner Matip VVD Tsimikas
                      Fab
                Hendo  Arthur
         Salah Bobby Nunez

      No idea how fit Arthur is but our options are lacking. Bajcetic and Keita are both injured and Elliot can be poor away from home. Jones has barely played and the only other options are Ox and Milner. Wouldn’t be shocked if Milner plays in the middle, but that means Trent or Gomez at RB. Henderson doesn’t seem to manage two games a week these days, so maybe he will be left out, but I’d try and play him if possible.  Diaz will hopefully come on from the bench regardless of what side we put out.

      Ali....Gomez..Konate..VV D..Robbo....Hendo..Fabin ho..Milner....Mo..Galpo. .Nunez.

      Has to make a decision on Trent. The ' performance' team must know he's not doing enough defensively. Got turned for Cities 4th but just didn't stay with Grealish..gave up once he got turned. It's coming to a head now, any decent wide player and he struggles.

      Very flat footed as well as pacy players go past him, one v one very poor. On crosses, often get his position wrong and back post headers are now common place. Doesn't cut out enough crosses. Didn't get the support from Elliott but still his overall defensive work is very average at best.

      Already see that Chelsea will have the typical spark after they fired their manager and get a result here….would have fancied it more to play against Potter…

      Sacked him even tho they are in QF of C/L...V Real Madrid...in a week or so. Still don't know why they sacked Tuchel. Won the Champions league in '21 and finished 4th...3rd last season...and a few bad results this season and they sack him...

      They sacked Tuchel because I suspect he stood up to Boehly and his ridiculous over spending on sh*t , and sh*t that Tuchel didn’t want

      Reds let’s be honest, as bad as our season is going, at least we’re not Chelsea FC.

      The revolving door for their managers is just laughable.

      Apparently they sacked Potter early because their first choice  is Nagelsmann which Spurs also  want  according to my Sky man…

      From the official site: On Diaz, the boss said: “No, he’s not available [to face Chelsea]. But he is in training, but he is not ready for this game. As much as we want him to be back, we still have to give him time.

      “Obviously it was long ago that he had the initial injury but when he came back to training in Dubai, it looked outstanding until he got injured again. So we have to make sure we are patient in that moment.

      “This week, I wouldn’t say Arsenal is completely out of the picture but it’s rather unlikely. But after that then Luis will be back.”

      Thiago also out. Klopp said with the short turnaround: “Let me say, two days after a game pretty much everybody is a doubt but I didn’t hear now anything that somebody is definitely out; maybe a few late calls, that’s it.”

      Gomez
      Milner

      Jones
      Henderson
      Elliot

      Diaz

      Gomez Konate VVD Tsimikas
         Milner Hendo Fabinho
         Salah Jota Nunez

      Be.Harder.To.Beat.

      Change both FBs from Citeh.
      Milner in the middle, shore things up, though we very short midfield options.
      Nunez back in, if have less creativity in the middle, need pace and directness up front. I like Gapko, but would go with that front 3.

      We've been dire away. Even though Chavs are as poor as we are, amn't overly hopeful.

      Mentality monsters sounds laughable now. Just fight..it is OK to lose. But, even 7 year olds will keep fighting and running till the end.

      Here’s hoping for a miraculous turnaround in the next two games. Chelsea has been losing at their home to every other team in the league and we should be hoping to make their toxic and vile crowd uncomfortable which could get transferred on to their players.

      Chavs are clearly worse than us but I’m sure we can lower our performance to match the theirs.

      Never know what to think nowadays but heart still goes for a win.

      Don’t look forward to games with much enthusiasm of late. Just pray we turn up with a vengeance tonight.

      Sacking Potter probably gives Chelsea the edge for this one now although it’ll certainly be a low quality game all round.

      I'm working so won't see this but honestly the weekend knocked the stuffing out of me and I've no real motivation to even want to see it.

      That'll pass of course but the nature of this season has been a slog for the most part.

      I’m off to the zoo!
      Looking at the reminding fixtures it’s only the Arsenal game that I’ll probably make the effort for.

      Reckon Matip Will come in and wouldn't be surprised with recent internationals Salah rested . Trent for me needs benching also
