I'm assuming TAA, Lovren, Moreno (!), Can and Salah will all come back in.

 

Get the first goal and we're laughing. Concede first and it's squeaky bum time.

Why would we make it easy for ourselves? It'll be hard way or no way.

We should be fine.   They left acres of space when chasing the game at their place.   Mane, Firmino and Salah should outscore them.

We're in a great position. Even if they go 1-0 we shouldn't panic, the onus is on them to overturn the deficit and with our front 3 I expect us to be able to capitalise on the space they'll leave behind. 3-1 to us.

Think they'll come, sit back and try and hit us on the break. I expect a lot of falling over by the hoffenheim players around the box to try and get free kicks plus trying to get loads of corners.

Yeah think they will play on the break for the first 60 mins and hope we make our normal mistakes to get back in the game. They need to get at us but to concede again means they will need tho throw everything at us. 

 

I think they'll score within the first 60 and we will pick them off as they keep throwing more and more men forward

I'd play this:

 

                              Firmino

 

Milner                                                 Salah

 

 

                Wijnaldum             Can

                               

                               Henderson

 

 

Moreno          Lovren                   Matip            Arnold

                                   Mignolet

 

 

With Mané on the bench for dem counters later in the match.

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”
