After a very nice win against Burnley how's about this for a break from Lge action. These are the games the city comes alive for, it'll be blue and red everywhere, i've yet to experience a derby game but one day i will, anyway, onto the team.
I can't find any updates on the fitness of Coutinho and Salah so if any of you can please let us know, i'll put them in my team anyway. I think the back 4 should be the same as against burnley, although i think Gomez will partner VVD in the future he has been making some big mistakes lately that have been costing us goals so maybe just take him out for this game and give him a break. Lallana being back is great and should start here alongside Can and Coutinho with the usual 3 upfront, my team for this game would be,
Arnold Klavan Lovren Robertson
Milner Can Lallana
Chamberlain Firmino Mane
As i said, not sure about the fitness of some players so the team might look a lot different on friday night but i feel very confident now no matter who plays such is our good run of form lately. Really looking forward to this game, should be a cracking atmosphere, derby cup games are always amazing, best of luck RedMen.
