Genk (H) Champions League 5/11 - 20:00

I hope and expect Mo to be left out of the starting 11 and Gomez in for Lovren.  Midfield can be rotated but the question is whether to rest the FB's . I doubt Klopp will tbh 

I think it depends if he starts Ox and Keita. I don't think he plays both of those and two fullbacks that bomb on.

Ruthlessness. Focus. Incisiveness. Goals. Points. Rest.

 

I don't ask for much.

 

No more acronyms. Just do the above, web Genk all over Anfield, boost our goal difference and (if Napoli also win their game) put ourselves within touching distance of the knockout phase.

Solidity. Tenacity.  Unbeatable Persistence.  Indefatigability. Dominance.

 

Strength. Endurance. Xenophilia. Yelling.

 

Fortitude. Legs. Attitude. Nerve. Directness. Excellence. Relentlessness. Skill.

 

I don't ask for much.

It's like I'm asking for nothing at all.

On a positive note, since this season's only defeat at Napoli, the stats are as follows-

 

P: 10 / W: 8 / D: 2 / L: 0

Goals For: 25  /  Goals Against: 14

 

- One of the draws was the Arsenal LC tie, making the above stats a little more impressive. 

 

- Only 2 clean sheets kept in that run (MK Dons, Sheffield United)

 

- Only 9 of the 25 goals scored have been from the front 3 (Bobby 1, Mane 4, Mo 4)

 

- The 16 'other' goals: Ox 3, Milner 3, Div 2, Robbo 2, TAA 1, Hoever 1, Gini 1, Lallana 1, Hendo 1, OG (Mustafi) 1

 

Overall, it's a nice balance of goals coming from both midfield (9) and the fullbacks (4), considering the front 3 haven't been at their absolute best, nor have there been any goals from central defenders at set pieces, generally another strong point of this team. 

 

Hopefully it means Klopp can continue to trust the bench players to get the job done and properly rest the first XI when required.

He will play Lovren and Virg against City so I'd rather they played tomorrow for consistency. I think he will rest the fullbacks and Mo. I also think Milner will play as he didn't feature at all on Saturday and likely won't start against city. Hence:

                        Alli

Gomez     Lovren     van Dijk     Milner

                    Fabinho
              Ox              Keita

  Mane                                 Origi
                    Firmino

Subs: Adrian, Trent, Robbo, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Salah

Something like that would have more than enough for Genk.

 

Agree that this would be a good week to give Robbo and Trent a break.

Any 11 we throw out should be enough against Genk at home - they are abysmal away.

 

5 goals against in each of their last three aways.

If we turn up from the off we should slaughter this lot. Someone is due a thumping and while I'd prefer it was in the premiership, I'll take it being Genk. 

 

Someone will get a hat trick.

I don't remember there ever being football on Bonfire Night.

I genuinely didn't think they had bommy night in Belgium. Just googled it and it appears they do. Fuck knows why.

I am going to this one.

 

Hope I don't end up in Hartlepool by mistake.

 

Just look out for monkeys hanging from gibbets. If there are none you should be on the right track.
