      Everyone's Fit - Your Best 11 In A Title Winning Match

      If it goes down to the wire, like some expect, and we have to beat Wolves on the final day to win yet another League title and providing everybody is fit and available (which we know isn't going to be the case) who would YOU trust as our starting XI?

      It's also not a case of "but I'd bring x off the bench blah blah blah". Just a starting XI.

      I don't think they'll be much difference in any of our backline, though some may throw Gomez in given his form so far this season. But I would be surprised. As for the rest of the team, I think there'll be be quite a few different choices.

      For me it's

      Alisson

      Alexander-Arnold
      Konate
      Van Dijk
      Robertson

      Mac Allister
      Endo
      Jones

      Salah
      Jota
      Diaz

      I’d probably change Diaz for Nunez !

      Similar. For me it's:

      Trent         konate               Virg              Robbo

                                     Endo

                     Dom                          Jones

          Salah                 Gakpo                     Jota

      But for the recent form of Jones I'd have had Mac in there instead.

      Final game shoot out?

      Allison

      Trent    Konate    Virgil    Robertson

      Endo

      Szoboszlai       Jones

      Salah         Gakpo        Jota

      Surprised a few have went for Thiago.

      And I was thinking Joe Gomez but winner take all it has to be Robbo.

      When fit he's probably 1 of our best players, unfortunately rarely fit!

      Throw the cat among the pigeons..

      Ali..Jomez..Konate..VVD. .Robbo...Trent...Endo..D om...Mo...Jota...Nunez.

      Bradley as well comes into consideration at RB. But Joe as played himself back into form. When confident he is a formidable defender. Playing Trent in mid is probably not on the cards as if that was the thinking I don't think we would be bringing in 3 new midfield players.

      Boss and coaching staff see the value of playing Trent at RB but in the 'inverted' role as almost getting 2 players for the price of one. It has it's risks obviously but it's risk/reward and I think the current thinking in on the reward benefit. My view is that we would benefit even more if we went the 'the full 9 yards' with Trent and played him as an out midfielder.

      Was going to put Jones in place of Macca but if this is a ‘Final’ game you just can’t ignore the fact he’s a World Cup Final winner… that experience needs to be on the pitch.

      Proper head scratcher for sure, but it gives an idea of the plethora of opinions amongst us….the brief is if everyone is fit…for me Thiago remains our best creator, so he’s in for me, Szlobos I considered but he’s no where near the level of experience Thiago has, nor his vision and passing,
      On the Diaz/Nunez debate, flip of a coin really, I went Nunez cos he scares the sh*te out of defenders, and Diaz can be a bit erratic, left out one or two current regulars, Bajcetic rather than Endo, a bit controversial maybe, but he’s younger/hungrier, we’d all like a 15 a side game ideally to fit everyone in we want!!

      Same as I picked. As for thiago 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Why anyone would pick him in a do or die game is beyond comprehension. Have they learned nothing from the last 2 plus years.

      Do or die I want players I can rely on.

      On the whole I think you have to go for players who are playing, in form and have got us to where we are, so for that reason I wouldn't pick Thiago, especially given the lengthy lay off (8/9 months), but by the end of the season who knows. Gets himself fit and playing regularly and he's certainly got the talent to make himself indispensable.
