Again, no pre-match thread so biting the bullet for a consecutive go. Another failure to gain three points, and I’ll call it a day.
We go last this time, having gone first last game week. We failed to take the 5 point gap available, but the other results didn’t go against us too much.
We know that Matip is out. We know that Thiago has been involved in training, but still not done full sessions (maybe one today?) so unlikely we can rely on him.
Don’t expect Klopp to make too many changes for this one. I’m expecting something like;
I’ve added Ox over Curtis. He was at fault for the corner leading to the equaliser. Needs to stay more switched on. Ox provides a bit more directness with his style of play. Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see one of the front three rested and Taki to start. I have no preference on who would miss out up top, but ideally all three go again, and come off early with the job done. Expecting no other changes really.
Not overly worried about Newcastle as an attacking threat. More worried about us killing the game off when we will have 65%+ possession.
Match on Amazon Prime on this occasion.
