      Pre Match : Liverpool v Aston Villa : Sunday 3rd Sept 14.00

      So looks like it will be Joe and Joel at the back for this one fingers crossed no one gets injured, good job Matip was taken off early last week as I don’t think his body can cope with playing every week.

      Interesting to see if Thiago is fit for this one.

      Surely Nunez has done enough to start, Gakpo not really had a flying start to the season so far.

      Villa seem to have improved from their thumping against Newcastle but we should still be too strong for them despite our defensive frailties.

      Alisson
      Trent
      Matip
      Gomez
      Robbo

      Thiago
      Mac
      Dom

      Diaz
      Nunez
      Salah

      Gomez was decent against Newcastle and I’m hoping he can have a very good season. We can’t rely on vvd to be the rock he once was.

      5-0 nunez all 5

      Our 2 starting centre halves out against a team on the up. I'll be astounded if we keep a clean sheet we will need to get a few goals I'd suggest if we want the 3 points.

      Hate playing Villa, never feel confident, being at home though and hopefully Darwin starting I can see us causing them issues, still can’t see a clean sheet for us though… a tough 2-1 again I think.

      Concerns over our defence just can't see us keeping them out . Have to start Nunez far more.goal threat than Gakpo for.me and I think we may need 3 so I am going with him

      Would be tempted to play Gakpo just in front of the midfield in place of Diaz and throw both Salah and Nunez up front but he didn’t offer anything of note and Diaz just had that electricity to him… hopefully Trent’s head is in this one too.

      It's nice that we have 5 very good attackers to choose from, and will be great when we can compliment that with a selection headache in midfield once Thiago is fit and Gravenberch settled.  We still look fragile at CB, but overall I think we've done well with our business and we should be in line for a decent season. 

      Hoping to see Nunez start and pick up where he left off at Newcastle.  Any win will do.  Just need to get into that winning habit and build some confidence.

      Interesting to see if Klopp reverts to the double pivot with Mac/Dom or stick with three man middle with Endoh. I am thinking with Gomez/Matip playing CB might want extra protection for them with Endoh. Think Gapko will be on the bench with Jota or Nunez in the middle.

      -------------------Alisson-------------------
      TAA-----Matip--------Gomez----Robbo

      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 can't play. So instead of him, I would would put Endo and then replace him for Bajectic around the 65th minute.

      Difficult game.

      A win against Aston Villa tomorrow to make it three victories on the trot. Villa may give us a difficult game, but I take the Reds to come out on top, in front of our fans at home !

      Might take the view that Nunez is best away from home. Pace on the counter attack. Finding a place for Jota and Nunez is a problem but Jota did well out wide once or twice V Newcastle. Jota V Nunez.

      Salah Jota Diaz would've been the shout V Villa but Nunez has forced his way into very serious contention with his brace.

      Gakpo should be on the bench because he lost some spark. For me, Nunez should play from the start for this one.

      Matty cash doing ok at wing back so need Robbo to keep him penned back and give him something to worry about pushing up
