    I don't know if we're there yet but if we're not we won't be far off,and that's the point of the season where we won't be putting out our strongest available 11 in most games. We won't win all of those games and in the ones we don't Klopp will be criticised for not going strong enough,but it's been his way of working the last few seasons,its won us far more points than it's cost us and with the factors around this season,it will be more important than ever.

    I understand the argument that going full strength for this one will allow more rest in the final 2 games and might be the best way to go. But if Klopp decides to go another way then I'll go along with him its the best thing to do. He's managed the squad brilliantly during his time here and he needs to be allowed to risk a few results for the bigger picture without it being automatically declared a mistake if the result doesn't go our way.

    Absolutely 100% agreed on this Mick, we will have to concede points in the short run to protect our long-term success, particularly with the acute injury crisis that we're currently facing.

    That considered I still feel that going strong tonight is justified as I feel that we will win the game as long as we don't change too much and that win gives us a huge advantage in the next rounds of fixtures with who we decide to rest.

    Just looking at the fixtures and after the last fixtures in the CL against Midyland we're into the crazy part of the season with games landing every few days (12th, 16th, 19th, 26th, 28th and the 2nd of January). That's 6 games in 21 days and there's enough games in there to really shake up the table if a team can do what we managed last year and get a perfect run through it.

    I also think going strong tonight makes the most sense and I think Klopp will. But if he doesn't I won't be criticising him afterwards if we don't get the result.

    I can only think that Klopp wasn't overly convinced by Atalanta and feels we will have enough about us to get a draw or win.

    Hopefully he see's some game time. Been a poor first half, very rare we dont have a shot on target in 45 mins.

    First half was shocking and just gave them loads of confidence

    They worked hard and got the rewards, they came needing a win and they got a side well under par in front of them

    I cant remember the last time we didnt register a shot on target at anfield. Poor display. Hopefully bounce back sat. Hope hendo is back for it.
