      WOW ! Szob, Robbo and Trent really fit enough for the bench ? Great news if they are. Massive trio to call on if needed.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would rest Konate and Jones to keep them fit and drop Diaz.

      Yes Jones asked to go off as a precaution. Felt his hamstring tighten up. So probably not available for Fulham.

      Egypt are playing a must win game again Cape Verde tonight and he's coming back to Liverpool after that match. His fitness aim is the semi final if Egypt get that far.

      Semi finals are on 7th Feb so if Egypt do go out Mo might make it V Arsenal away 4th Feb.

      As strong as possible really . Let the injured guys coming back use FA cup to get their minutes in no chance Robbo will.be risked being out so long and will more likely see him Sunday .

      Quansah in for Konate
      Grav in for CJ
      Gakpo in for Diaz

      Ideally you can bring Lucho on for Jota around 60. I love Diogo to death, but I would still be cautious with him if the games permit it. He's played a lot lately.

      Hope Szobo is back

      I think TAA and Robbo may be little early for this game. Hope to see them and CJ back for Sunday...

      Would be nice to see Middelsboro finish the job.

      Really looking forward to this game. They're a decent footballing team and deserve credit. So we can't take any chances. Strongest possible line up. With probably only Konate rested,Graver in for injured Jones.

      0-2

      Don't think we could rotate much even if we wanted to at the moment.

      Kelleher; Bradley, Quansah, Van Dijk, Gomez; Mac Allister, Elliott, Gravenberch; Gakpo, Jota, Nunez.

      We don’t need to do Jack f***in sh*t, the onus is on them, they have to come out that will leave space for us to exploit, I don’t think Robbo, Trent will be risked, they might get a ten minute workout once the game is done and dusted, Szlobos might feature earlier than that but again, he won’t be over taxed,

      Kelleher, Bradley, Quansah, Virgil, Gomez, Macca, G’Berch, Gakpo, Diaz, Jota Nunez,

       I’m going full on and for killing the tie early, hopefully we bag a couple before HT, we can then see where we’re at around the hour and if need be shuffle the pack, be great if Szlobo’s gets minutes, and even better if our two wingmen see game time too, make no mistake, this will Not be easy, so we need to be on our mettle,


      I dunno but this has an air of inevitability about it, f***in arrogant Cnut aren’t I ?🤪 but I can’t help how confident i am that this just Pt1,  their is another 3 pots yet to chase and I wouldn’t put it past us we do them all ??

      This tie was left well in the balance. Away from home with a weakened XI we need to be willing to soak up pressure and then hurt them when we've done so.

      Getting the first goal will be important for both sides as to where thus tie develops. If they get it again the heat is on.

      Set piece goal would be lovely.

      We should be aware of their ability from the first leg, so shouldn’t be underestimating them.
      Strongest side available, but only fully fit
      Players need apply. No injury risks going forwards.
      They need to score, we don’t, so keep it tight and they will get impatient and that’s when we can counter effectively !
      I’m thinking if we play this tactically right, we’re heading for a 0:2 win.

      I’ve got it the right way round today. Against Bournemouth, I predicted  3:1 instead of 1:3 😱

      Hopefully more players will be fit by then, interesting who will be in the starting lineup for the final.

      Egypt are playing a must win game again Cape Verde tonight and he's coming back to Liverpool after that match. His fitness aim is the semi final if Egypt get that far.

      Semi finals are on 7th Feb so if Egypt do go out Mo might make it V Arsenal away 4th Feb.
       

      Egypt sneaked through on 0 GD...Ghana -1...so Mo still involved. Japan need at least a draw against Indonesia to progress.Playing tomorrow.

      Looks like Jones IS available as it was just a precautionary sub. Robbo might make the bench and get a run out if the game is secure.

      Be good to see Robbo back clearly on bench but hopefully plays minutes Sunday along with Trent and Dom which allows a few a breather .Just hope it's Ibou and Virg and let them both miss Norwich

      Yep judging by Pep’s presser, Robbo and Jones should be in the squad but no Trent or Szobo until Norwich. Great to have those 3 back in time for some tricky games and of course that Jones appears to be unscathed.

      If it's me I rather he stay with us :)

      Aye, just been unlucky with injuries, hopefully thats behind him now, and he can a decent loan under his belt and come back stronger in the summer.

      Strong as we can go to start tmrw. They will have to attack us, so hopefully that means we can hit them with quick counters.

      Any win tonight or even a draw, would see the Reds through to the final against the chavs. Hopefully we can score an early goal to see the cottagers off.

      Tbh I find it hard to make a prediction for tonight's game, main thing is the Reds reach Wembley !

      They were playing a championship team at home in the 2nd leg of a semi with a team that cost over a billion. There was no way they were going out last night.

      Just want to get through tonight and then do them goodstyle in the final.

      Seems to have been very unlucky with injuries




      Yea. But I think it's partly the growing pains thing as well.

      Touchwood he's over the worst now.

      We can't go at it from the off. Caution, ease into it. No buses involved obviously but just let the game happen, don't try and force it early on. Gaps will be there, just keep it tight, no silly fouls. Midfield press hard from the off. Tempted to try and kill it early but we have to be patient. Let the game move...push it at the right time.

      0-2.
