Sheffield United 2-1-20 PL (H)

Right, this is our first game of the decade which takes place at Anfield. I hope the lads will be much fresher for this game and it seems some of the players look tired during last Sunday's visit at Wolves.

Sheffield United are having a decent season and earlier this season we had a narrow 1-0 with a lucky goal from their keeper's error. Anyway, back to the team selection and maybe we could do with some changes in the line up in order to rest some of our players. I would like to rest Henderson, Wijnaldum and Firmino and keep them fresh for the FA Cup 3rd Round or maybe they can come late into the game as substitutes if it goes pear shape against Sheffield United.

The midfield and the attack will get a change and the first 11 line up should be:

Alisson

TAA - Gomez - VVD - Robertson

Keita - Lallana - Milner

Salah - Origi - Mane

The kickoff time is 8 PM (GMT) and best of luck Redmen.

    • Keita picked up an injury in the warm up. so Milner replaces him
  • Klopp says he has 13 outfield players to choose from, not including the kids, which illustrates just how much injuries are starting to take their toll. The players that probably most need resting are Henderson, Robertson and Salah but I don't know whether Klopp will rotate them in this match or against Everton. I'd probably rest Henderson in this match, play Wijnaldum or Lallana at number six and then play Henderson there against Everton.
  • Klopp has hinted there will not be many changes. The Reds have had an extra day to recuperate compared to the previous two games. Robertson is due a rest as is Salah while Keita is due to return from his rest, maybe replacing Lallana. This could give starts to Milner and Origi but the big changes will most probably come against Everton in the FA Cup. Sheffield United have done well so far this season. They are a bit like Wolves but without the quality, especially in attack. Nevertheless they make the most of what talent they have and are well organised. I foresee another close game and just hope we can get across the line as we did against Wolves.
  • I’m expecting another tough game here as Sheffield Utd have been doing well for a newly promoted team. Last week against Man City was the first time they have lost on the road. Suppose Keita will start and the back 4 unchanged otherwise have no idea what Klopp will do

"I agree with most of what Uncle has said, we took this game for granted big time, no way should we have a replay here no matter who played, we should have had enough quality to put this tie to bed even with players coming back from injury. It's just…"

"It's a complete mess all round. Klopp was sent a letter from the PL saying managers should respect the break and not play games during it, so what do the FA do - they arrange the FA Cup replays during the break. Completely idiotic. I can thus unders…"

"I think I was right to be more worried about the senior players who lacked game time than the youngsters. It was difficult for the young players when the senior players were struggling. Having said that, it was the right match to bring back the li…"

"I'll try to fill in the gaps Warrior. I suspect the team may be:

Adrian
Williams Matip Lovren Larouci
Lallana Fabinho Chirivella
Eliott Origi Jones

I don't think both Minamino and Origi will start as one of them will be needed for West Ham on Wed…"

"How could i forget Lallana, Shaqiri at the moment is seeing more of the physio"s bench than the subs bench, feel sorry for him as he's done very well when he's played."

"That could well be the starting 11 but as far as I know Shaquiri is not fit enough to feature yet"
Saturday
Uncle commented on Warrior18's blog post Shrewsbury, 26-01-20, FA Cup 4th round (A)
"You could have Williams at right back, Larouci at left back, Jones in midfield and Elliott and Shaqiri as wide forwards. That would leave Hoever, Lallana, van den Berg, Chirivella and a selection of first teamers to come off the bench."

"This may sound daft but I'm not sure Salah always 'sees' his teammates. When he's got the ball at his feet in the box he's so hyperfocused on getting into a position to shoot I think he gets tunnel vision to a degree. That doesn't excuse not passing…"

The games keep coming, thankfully. We wouldn't want to break our stride now would we, haha. I'm a bit more interested in us doing well in this comp than the Lge cup but still won't be too upset if we go out, as iv'e said before it's all about winnin…
