Christ we have went strong

People will moan whatever team we played

Neither of these things is in any way surprising.

Thiago needs minutes and games to get his rhythm- so no issue with Klopp playing him .

Matip is the only one I prob wasn't expecting, def a weird one.

I'm expecting it to be either a 45 each for him and Van Dijk - or maybe Phillips comes on on 60 mins

Hoping we can get Origi on for Salah/Mane, and Milner for Thiago as early as possible.

Main one that's surprised me is Kelleher not starting

Hopefully our players aren't as scared of getting injured as the posters on here.
It’s a perfectly understandable stance. We had relentless bad luck with injuries last season that ruined our title chances and so nearly put us in the Europa League. We saw how one reckless moment (Pickford) can take a season out of a players career and we even saw how fielding starters (Jota) in meaningless games like tonight’s can backfire.

If people want us to field the likes of Salah and Mane every game that’s fine. I don’t see why opposing that is so radical though.

Would have liked to see Kelleher get minutes, but apart from that, not arsed about the selection. Im not the manager.

It's like some people don't hear what Jurgen says. ( Again the answer to the Jota question in the prematch presser)

He explained about keeping players in their rhythm. That you can't just take the top players out of a match, play the kids, and expect the top players to raise their game the next match.


but what does Jurgen know..

Yes, Alisson is the major surprise for me in that team certainly more surprising than Salah. Mind you is Kelleher coming back from injury as well? I think he missed the recent internationals.

More rest for Trent, Virg, Robbo, Hendo, Fab and Jota.

Think that was probably the best we could hope for given Klopp's comments.

Looking forward to watching Tsimikas, Moreton and Minamino tonight.

Be nice to see Mo, Mane, Thiago and Matip get no more than 60

Yep. Hope Porto's not going to go gung-ho thinking we may be switched off.
If we can score a few and control the game, then I don't see a need for especially Thiago doing the full 90.

Due to pandemic related material shortages, a scope change has been issued on the current stadium expansion so FSG asked Klopp to find a couple extra million by beating more teams in the Champions League this round.

I know some people are saying that team is strong, but there are a lot of changes; FBs rested, so Tsimikas and Williams gets minutes, which is great, Konate gets minutes, also positive, Chamberlain and Thiago also need minutes, great, Morton starts, that's got to be exciting for everyone involved, Minamino gets deserved minutes. It's really only Salah and Mane that there are question marks over and though I am sure Origi is disappointed to not get on, but you would have expected one of those to have started. Perhaps the only pity is that Phillips didn't get a run for Matip, but that's a flip of a coin really. Both Origi and Philips will come on if things are going well.

It would be great to see Phillips come on. The lad was a hero last season.

Why not? Do players suddenly start playing badly if there's a week between games? Because that isn't a phenomenon I've ever witnessed.
