Anyone paying attention knows that this lot are actually shite and struggle to score against half decent defenses.
Biggest call will be Bradley vs TAA. Bradley is playing out of his mind right now and you’d hate to halt that momentum, on the other hand he’s a young lad being integrated into the senior squad, you don’t want to risk burning him out or getting him seriously injured. Tough call.
Same front three as tonight please. Have a feeling Nunez will terrorize their back four leaving Diaz and Jota to feast.
Reds to win 4-0 and for Arteta to announce that he actually IS leaving for Barca. AFTV goes into meltdown.
Must win match. Keeps pressure on Cheaty who only seem to crack when they have to chase and psychologically will knock Arsenal out of the ‘race’.
I’d like to see similar lineup but don’t think we can leave out both our main FBs if they are fit. Impossible to drop Bradley - unless he physically needs a breather - but wonder about bringing Andy back. Again unless some need resting, midfield and up front seem obvious. We have a week after this until burnley and this match is our toughest for about 5 weeks until Cheaty so it’s not a game to rest if anyone if that can be avoided.

You can see TAA and Robbo having some match fitness issues when they came on. Too soon to throw them in from the start, will be disastrous if they cannot contain the Arsenal attack which they will try to overwhelm in the first 15 minutes. Conor and Gomez can and will even hit back so I will go with the same team that thrash Chelshite
Every game from now on is a must win match, but this one even more than the others for the reasons that PRJ has mentioned.
Klopp suddenly has a real embarrassment of riches, especially at full back, and it will be a tricky juggle to keep the balance of the team.
Pretty confident after the last couple of games, but can we keep up that intensity for the rest of the season?
