Good question. I reckon Kelleher, Tsimikas, Williams x 2, Keita, Mini and Origi play  but who fills the gaps?

I think we might see some Leighton Clarkson in the middle if none of the currently injured midfielders are ready to travel; I expect Tsimikas at left back but I’d like to see James Norris on the bench; hopefully some of Liam Miller, Layton Stewart and Luis Longstaff will be involved up front rather than Origi.

Koumetio is the likeliest in defence. I would like Jones in midfield if we’re sticking to 4-3-3.

Danke sehr für die antwort, Tout est bien !

 

Jones could  be rested like Neco, but Origi will play, maybe Keita and Trent with regards with what will happen for them Sunday night.

Wrap Jones and Neco in cotton wool as we need them.

 

Just send the 23s to fill in the gaps and if more bodies are needed then raid the u18s too. 

 

Kostas, Div, Taki, Naby if he's fit, and that's basically all the senior lads I'd send.

Agree about Jones but if Trent is fit I'd play Neco as he needs game- time. The rest of the season on the bench isn't going to do him any favours and Milner will surely be fit soon to cover at RB if necessary.

Agree with that, Boss

Paul Glatzel instead of Divock Origi maybe? Klopp mentioned his name a couple of weeks ago.

I'm pretty certain we'll see Jake Cain make his Champions League debut. Leighton Clarkson has to be in with a shout too.

 

I'd like to see Conor Bradley and Jack Bearne in the squad, so long as they are fit to play - Jack has missed the last couple of games for the 23s.

 

Owen Beck and/or James Norris are the most likely candidates to play backup to Kostas - It'll be interesting to see if Norris starts for the 18s tomorrow. Larouci is another option at left back, though I'm not sure how things are working for young Yasser. Been on the bench for the 23s a few times this season, but has hardly seen any playing time.

 

Would expect van den Berg to travel, along with Koumetio as options at centre back.

 

I'd go with a few experienced heads to start the game, with a view to replacing them in the second half.

 

Kelleher, Trent*, Rhys Williams, Fabinho*, Tsimikas; Henderson*, Cain, Keita; Millar, Origi, Taki.

 

*45 minutes each

 

Neco, Koumetio/van den Berg & Clarkson on in the second half - Ideally Milner would be available to provide the experience in the second half in place of Hendo.

 

(If Shaqiri was fit enough, I'd have him start on the right in a front 3 with Taki central and Millar to the left).

A player may be registered on List B if he is born on or after 1 January 1999 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday by the time he is registered with UEFA. Players aged 16 may be registered on List B if they have been registered with the participating club for the previous two years without interruption.

Neither van den Berg nor Bradley are eligible for List B, as shown by that quote from the UEFA regulations; both joined in June 2019, which, despite how it feels, was still last year.

I'm very much in agreement with the idea of having the right sort of first-team players along to provide leadership, which is why I wouldn't have Origi or Keita within 500 miles of the game.

Ta. I thought Conor joined prior to the cut-off. Turns out he joined in September of 2019...! Totally forgot that vdB hadn't been with us for long enough.

 

It'll have to be Neco and Trent covering the right back position then, as no one else from the 18s/23s is anywhere near ready to step up, other than Conor.
