Our team for my money might look like this:

 

Kelleher

 

Gomez

Konate

Phillips

Tsimikas

 

Oxlade

Milner

Jones

 

Minamino

Origi

Gordon

That team finishes above Everton .

Wonder who we'll see playing for us tonight. Best go and check the LFC webby in case Jurgen has picked me at centre-mid.

While I always want us to win every game, I'll also take pleasure in seeing some of the fringe players in the squad get a chance to prove their worth. The best thing about the League Cup in my opinion is that it gives meaningful playing time and exposure to those players trying to break into the squad or team.

 

It's a bit of a joke of a competition at the moment, and I'm not sure if that will change for the better. While I'm glad of our previous success in it, it's never going to compare to the CL and Leagu trophies. It's far more important to rest/not injure players here than what the outcome of the match is.

 

Valuable experience (if the opponent can be bothered to take it seriously), but nothing I'll lose sleep over if the result doesn't go our way.

 

To both protect our most important players going forward, and try to knock Norwich out, I'd go with;

 

------------------------Kelleher-----------------------

Bradley-------Gomez-----Konate------------Robbo

-----------------------Milner---------------------------

-----------------Ox-------------Jones----------------

..Gordon-------------Minamino---------------Origi.......

Also, Naty P should have obviously asked to leave. Can't start a first round cup game.

We didn't, and still don't know how the main 3 have recovered long term.

 

Only now are we getting back into 3 games a week.

 

It made sense to keep him, until January at least.
