  1. Harvey has at least had a couple of run-outs for the 23s in recent weeks, so he has a little match sharpness, but Taki starting tonight has indeed come out of nowhere really.

    Some feel-good news from the 18s today as Tom Hill made his return to playing after over 18 months out through injury. Offal The 19-year-old played his first game since September 2020 after a serious knee issue was followed by difficulties with his shin and back. And the Formby-born player made the most of his comeback at the Kirkby Academy, scoring a typical goal just before half-time as he arrived into the box to finish a good cross from Isaac Mabaya. That brought the Reds back into the contest at 2-1 and they then dominated the second period. Hill, who made a first-team debut for Liverpool in December 2019, almost grabbed a second before departing after an hour, having come through the test well. At full-time he shared a warm embrace with Academy lead physio Paul Kelly and his staff, the team who have played such a huge part in his rehabilitation. On the pitch, Oakley Cannonier finished off a superb Harvey Blair cross to make it 2-2 and then grabbed a winner in the last minute following a perfect through ball from Luke Chambers.
  3. No real surprise there - If it were me picking the side, Robbo would be getting the evening off too. I'd be going along the lines of: Alisson; Gomez, Matip, Konate, Tsimikas; Hendo, Keita, Jones; Diaz, Firmino, Jota. Subs: Kelleher, Trent, Beck, Milner, Ox, Elliott, Minamino, Mane, Origi. Would definitely look at hooking Hendo around the hour mark, then probably Diaz around 75 minutes. You could, in a real madness, run Ox out at right-back with Gomez alongside Matip, if there were any concerns risking Konate. (I'd rather have Milner playing in the middle of the park than him covering at fullback for 1 game if Hendo is not risked). I do wonder if using Ox as an emergency right-back has ever crossed Klopp's mind this season - Given how high our fullbacks play, it would be akin to his time playing as a wingback/right-sided midfielder during his time at Arsenal.

    The 23s did end up finishing 4th in PL2, which given the start of their PL2 campaign is not too bad a finishing position. Chelsea scored 2 late goals to beat Spurs 2-1 earlier today to keep themselves in PL2 and in doing so secured our 4th place finish.

    Newcastle 0 Liverpool 1 Good way to start the game as we take the lead in the 8th minute, with local lad Bobby Clark returning to net against his former side.

    Final game of the season for the 18s today as they travel North to take on Newcastle. Kick-off at 11:00, but no live coverage that I can see, unfortunately.
