    Can see Gomez Moreno and probably Ings starting this one.
    Maybe Clyne if fit .
    Maybe 3 at the back so we can rest a Cm and go 343 with Clyne and Moreno part of the 4.

    We have a maximum of 5 games to play in a month. I can't see the wholesale changes many are anticipating, the midfield 3 have no choice but to play, Bobby and Mo will play too. Probably Ings for Mane although I'd go with Solanke. Other than that maybe the fullbacks are rested.

    Lambert's Anfield record - 3 wins, 2 draws, 0 defeats.

    Really tough team selection here. Can see reasons for making wholesale changes but we really need to win this or next week against chelsea could be a nightmare. Hopefully whatever team he picks gets the job done. Full back cover a major worry with how Gomez and Moreno played at West Brom. Clyne needs to start and robertson should be fine to play after having last weekend off.

    Can't see us resting players unless they have a niggle, very few games left to guarantee top 4 and don't want to be needing to beat Chelski.

    Unusually an extra Sky channel showing this match so there will be a wider audience. Sky One are showing the match as well as Sky Sports.

    They did this for the recent Southampton Chelsea match as well.

    Klopp on Oxlade injury: "It's not fair but if you get a lemon you have to make lemonade out of it. We will wait for him like a good wife when the man is in prison."

    :eek:

    James Pearce@JamesPearceEcho
    Klopp: "I know it's a tradition that at 12.30pm games the atmosphere isn't that good. So go to bed at 9pm tonight and tomorrow get up and create the most special atmosphere ever. This team deserves it."

    paul joyce@_pauljoyce
    Klopp wants supporters to maintain backing at early kick-off against Stoke tomorrow: "If this team doesn’t deserve the most outstanding atmosphere ever at 12.30, I don’t know who does."


    James Pearce on Twitter: Klopp on Sadio Mane scan: "Sadio was just visiting a friend! Of course there is something. It's not serious. There is a chance for tomorrow."

    I think they do this once in a blue moon to help promote Sky Sports ... show those without a subscription what they are missing etc.

    Obviously, it's cheaper to show the same programme on more than one channel, then provide individual content for each channel, so there's a little bit of cost saving in here too ;)

    Must be an FSG owned station Garrett :D:D

    Totally unrelated but what a bloodly long week it's been, if I so much as smell alcohol tonight I'm sure I'll collapse! Looking forward to this game tomorrow afternoon, it's literally all I have on the agenda for tomorrow.

    Very tough call with regards to team selection for this one....

    My guess is that Moreno will start, but it's worth asking if he should start in defense or possibly midfield. Personally, I think I'd actually play him midfield, as he's (a little) better going forward than in defense. In that instance, I'd rest Milner.

    With Mane out, both Salah and Firmino vital to next weeks' CL game, there must be the temptation to play Woodburn, Solanke and Ings from kick off, with Firmino and Salah on the bench. I would usually tend to start my best players, then take them off when we are a goal or two up, but I think Klopp has tended to do it the opposite way a few previous occasions, hence I'm assuming changes to the starting eleven.

    While the above is fairly significant change, it does offer a bit of rest for some key players, even if we need to bring some of them on in the second half.

    LOL :D

    Nope, but ironically, two American organisations (Comcast and Disney, via Fox) are trying to take over Sky at the moment... ;)

    Karius, Trent, Gomez, Van Dijk, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Ings. Leaked on twitter, I'm sure safe to post here?

    Wow three at the back with Moreno and TAA as wingbacks! Very interesting.
