I think that makes more sense, especially having 5 subs in Europe.

Bangkok Ladyboys went down a treat ... so probably do them again  ;D ;D

Who do we play in defence on Wednesday then if we're wrapping him in cotton wool? Williams obviously but who else? It shouldn't be Fabinho, he's just come back from a muscle injury and is a higher risk of picking up another than Matip if he plays. Phillips can't play a he's not registered so that leaves Koumetio right?
Billy is not registered for CL is my understanding

Don't we go strong on Wednesday..win this one then we can use Matchday 5 and 6 as opportunities to rest a few?

I'd go Matip and Rhys Williams
according to 24/7 I will be scrambling round for tickets on the exchange all season #STH #19awayclub

Williams should definitely come in. After the first game against Atalanta you certainly wouldn't be worrying about him in there. Who to start alongside him is the question. I'd go Fabinho, because despite his injury troubles Matip has had it much worse. Shame we don't have Phillips in the squad because he could play at least 2 of the last 3 in Europe.

There's nothing explicitly stopping him from playing every 3 days that I've ever seen mentioned.  He certainly struggles with injury but I've never seen it linked to the volume of games (beyond the normal correlation of more games meaning more opportunity for injury) or needing a particularly long recovery time between games.

While he remains fit I'd expect him to play every important game for us.

Oh yeah Phillips can't play can he. I think we could see 45 mins each for fabinho and Matip?

Is a great shout on the 45 mins each and what we've done with the midfielders before

Think it will be Rhys Williams and Matip against Atalanta on Wednesday and Nat Phillips and Fabinho on Saturday against Brighton. Can't see either Matip or Fabinho playing 3 games in 7 days.

You sure? I know Phillips isn't, but thought Billy was, and it was just his injuries that kept him away from the squad?

Great defender, always more comfortable seeing his name on the team sheet. Huge pity about the time out of the game he spends with his various injuries. Gave a top class performance after having to come back into a makeshift team and from his own fitness and injury stuff. Him and Fab work very well together. I think Fab has been exceptional at CB but of course then we lose the option of having him in the midfield and at times we are really going to want to have him there.
  Maybe some games could work like it did when Neco came on and Milner moved to midfield. A CB could come on in the CL games or Prem games if midfield is getting overrun and Fab can move to Midfield during the game.
  Stay fit all season kidda, about time we all got to see you play for many games. Yeah always been a big fan of Matip but to me it was a situation were I thought we need to buy a CB or two even though we have him because of the injury problems.

We do have the ‘luxury’ of 5 subs so I guess that’s possible. And to be fair, I’d want at least one senior player in there against Atalanta or Ajax (if we haven’t qualified) so maybe a half each is the way to go.

Tough call regardless but would be nice to get qualification wrapped up and then it doesn’t matter who we play.

Welcome sight of Joel Matip training at Kirkby. Defender set to come back into the side to face Ajax after being rested against Brighton #LFC

Just for those who may still be worried about him not being involved against Brighton :)

I was fucking terrified when he had to sprint back at full pace around 85 minutes. Jokes aside, he was faultless. Absolutely top class defender.
