Leicester, 30-01-19, PL (H)

Seems so long since we played but back to the prem now with a visit from leicester. Really bad news as regards Gomez, just as he was about to make a come back, not sure how much longer he'll be out for but it's a blow.

The usual front 3 of course and Alisson, Robertson are certs to start, the rest is anyones guess, we're at home so we attack, my guess is a midfield of Shaqiri, Hendo and Wijaldum with Milner falling back to RB and Fabinho at CB depending on the fitness of Matip and Lovren.

                                                            Alisson

                                         Milner    Fabinho  VVD   Robertson

                                             Shaqiri     Hendo   Wijaldum

                                              Salah     Firmino   Mane

I think this could be our strongest team right now given our injury list but no matter, i feel we'll have too much quality for leicester, a win for the reds as we march on to what could be a successful season. Best of luck RedMen.

  • I've just seen the football scores - Newcastle 2 Man City 1. I did not see that result coming at all, I didn't think City would drop points this soon. If we're going to win the league these are the kind of opportunies we have to take advantage of because while City might drop more points in the future they're also capable of going the rest of the season unbeaten. Klopp won't want to put any extra pressure on the team for the Leicester game but deep down he and the players will know they won't get many chances like this to draw away from City. Things just got interesting.
    • We simply have to grab this chance with both hands, let's hope they show how badly they want this title, send out a message that it's ours and we're not giving it away, i sense a nervy night in Anfield tonight.
    • Yes, very interesting. We have been in these situations before and failed to take advantage but this team feels different. A win tonight would restore that 7 point lead we held before the City game. There are no easy games and Leicester are a decent side but if we can come through this one and West Ham we will be in a great position.
      • I would be shocked if we didn't take full advantage of this result. This team and manager have the right mentality, they have the motivation now and i'm sure we'll get the win tonight. I must admit though i have been feeling less confident since city beat us and it showed with the team as well but tonight is the perfect opportunity to restore that confidence.
  • I have read VVD has not trained since Dubai because of illness and that if he does not train today he is out. However both Lovren and Matip are fit (not that that combination inspires confidence. Wijnaldum is also a doubt and if he does not play then either Fabinho or Keita would have to play alongside Henderson. If it was Fabinho then Camacho would have to come in as right back. It's unfortunate all these issues have arisen at the same time but none of them seem to be long term.
    • VVD trained yesterday and today as did Fabinho and wijnaldum is fit. all are expected to be available for tonight.
      • That's great news phil, thanks for your inside info, hahaha, Be a bloody cold night in Anfield tonight mate, wrap up well.
  • Milner's suspended after his red card so he'll be out. Apparently both Lovren and Matip were in full training this week so there's a chance either of them could start at centreback leaving Fabinho to play at right back, which of course he does for Brazil. If Lovren and Matip aren't fit we could be looking at one of the kids at right back, maybe Camacho. As for the game, Leicester have had a habit of catching us out in the past so I'm usually a bit cautious of them but they don't seem to be as tricky as they once were. Even so, they're still 9th in the table so they can't be taken lightly. My one worry is that we're going to have to juggle our players around a little to get all positions on the pitch covered and that may lead to a slight bit of uncertainty at first. Apart from that we should have too much fire power for Leicester to cope with (at least in theory).
    • I forgot milner is suspended and if Matip and Lovren are not ready then we do have problems at the back, just reading now that VVD is a doubt so you could say we're decimated at the back, this is a worry.

"I'm not in favour of treating the CL with less determination than the PL. City have a stronger squad than we have but but they are going for 4 competitions. If they can go for 4 surely we can cope with 2. (Spurs are also going for 2 and will almost…"

"Liverpool Echo are saying Firmino missed training due to a virus but there are hopes he'll still be fit. Lovren definately won't play, they say, meaning a centreback pair of Fabinho and Matip. Sturridge is the likely replacement for Firmino if he ca…"

"I agree a good run in the CL, if not winning it, helps to attract players and ups the revenue but i would say winning a prem Lge also has that affect and we haven't won one yet so that's why i say all out for the Lge title. The premier Lge being the…"

Feels like we've been waiting for this game for an eternity. I'm not sure about how you guy's feel about this season's CL but for me, i won't be too disappointed if munic knock us out, it's all about the Lge for me, don't get me wrong, i would love…

"That's an excellent summary. I thought Wijnaldum showed what he is capable of doing in a more advanced role. We have lacked a midfielder getting into the box but both he and Keita were doing that yesterday. Keita was much improved and for once seeme…"

"Thanks for the info uncle, very much sounds like we're back on track, fingers crossed that's us for the last 12 Lge games and who knows. Like you say, it's the attitude of the players and fans that's so important, we have to do our part as much as t…"

"You couldn't have asked for more of a transformation. The players looked sharper and more determined from the very start and the crowd were really up for it too. The defence was solid right across the back line and Alisson cut out his occasional lap…"

How important has this game become after a disappointing result against the hammers. I'm reading that Lovren and Arnold could be in contention but maybe not to start, i think we may see Milner kept at RB and Matip to partner VVD. Fabinho to start al…
