Mané will start, but if it was me I'd rest him a little. Lotta games in a short period of time with another big one on the horizon. Plus, we don't need to win this one to go through.

That should go in the shitness of modern football thread. Rest him? Really? Our best player by a country mile for me, probably our best goalscorer too, in a game of this magnitude? I'm having rel difficulty getting my he'd around that.

He'll need a rest at some point but this isn't the game i'd choose. The reason being that the impetus is on them to attack, so we'll need his ever present threat of running in behind on one ball from deep.

Hmmm.. I'm not sure I agree with this approach. Surely with the lead as well as the pacey forwards we have, the wiser move would be to sit back a bit and hit them on the counter?

Saw a stat today something along the lines of us only losing one game out of eighteen when Lovren & Matip started together and had about 8 clean sheets

 

That's a bit of an eye opener!

Imagine if we rested Mane for this and got knuckled out. jesus. 

 

Play our best 11 (whatever the fuck that looks like) and rip the cunts apart. This isn't a rehearsal.

Must have been the 17 games when Lovren has actually played with his eyes open.

Plenty of people would be happy to see us rest players in the group stages.

 

So apart from the money (and what difference does that make to us fans) i assume the same people would be happy to see us rest players tomorrow and not have to bother with the group stages.

Honestly, I don't think I'm even in the top 5 of posters on here who constantly defend FSG. Your obsession with me is more than a little bizarre at this point.

Mignolet

TAA Matip Lovren Moreno*

Henderson Grujic Wijnaldum

Mane Firmino Salah

 

That's the team I would play. I think Robertson is better than Moreno, but the latter has some pace that could be useful here, while I see Robertson coming to the fore in the league as he gets his feet under him. Good debut at the weekend and I think he will build on that.

 

The one surprise is Grujic. He's a big unit who gets stuck in and I think he has a goal in him. The other reason for picking him is because I don't like Henderson and Can playing together.

 

For me the front three picks itself. I can understand the shout to start with Mane on the bench - it's a long season, and bring him on as the game opens up a bit. It sort of makes sense, but I'd rather start him from the beginning as he's just so good, and it seems wrong to not start with your biggest threat.

    • 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.”
