Given the injuries we currently have in the centre of our defence, and the fact we’re down in Brighton, I think it’s only right Wijnaldum should start alongside VVD.

It would be great to really give them a good going over.Every since the city win the whole of the media have been willing our downfall and making out that city are some plucky under dog instead of exposing them for the financial doping cheats they are .City players havnt stopped either and Pep came out with some smart arse comments about how he takes all cups seriously , well with a billion pound team you would fucking want to.If we put down a marker here all their shite talk will dry up.

Team largely picks itself. My only doubt would be between Shaqiri and Keita. Shaq obviously offers more at the minute, but we need Keita to find rhythm, confidence and form, and for that he'll need a run in the starting 11. Playing with a solid, reliable midfield duo behind him and having the  front three around him could boost his confidence and push him to trying and impose himself in the game.
That's the main question, I think. I don't think Shaqiri's contribution makes him undroppable; he's also well suited to an impact role from the bench, and the upside of a flying Keita must be worth facilitating sooner or later. He's not going to get any more confident on the bench, or it seems playing from the left.

I'd like to see -

Mane     Firmino     Salah

Gini         Keita
Henderson

Robertson                       Arnold
Van Dijk     Fabinho

Alisson


But whatever the manager wants, we should be able to beat Brighton and put some pressure back on City.

The main thing here is to get back to winning ways. I know we had some kids playing against Wolves but the seniors didn’t cover themselves in glory there. It was very disappointing.

Brighton will give us a hard game, no doubt about that but if we play to our level we should win. What helps us is that they probably won’t sit back since they’re at home and they’ll look at our last 2 results and feel as if they can nick something from the game. That always plays to our advantage.

Just 3 games in January. Absolutely no excuses if we want to maintain our advantage.

Great OP

I feel like the OP team likely what fields however would like to see
Alisson
Trent-Fabinho-VVD-Roberton
Gini-Keita
Shaqiri-Firmino-Mane
Salah

Would give a penetration player in the deeper part of the MF. Also Gini can help keita thoughout the game with what what he still learning in the system. Wont complain to much if Henderson instead of Keita, would like to see keita get a run of games and Gini can help him playing with him

Come on Redmen!!
Great OP thanks and interesting to hear about their fullbacks. They have been a side we usually have had success against and expect more of the same. Home match was tight and they looked organised. Was my first trip to Anfield this season and apart from Salah goal it was a pretty even game with Alison flick the entertainment highlight but a worry in itself. Keep hearing Gomez is training and so think we may see him back. If we go with him on the bench it is a tough call between Gini and Fab at CB. Shaquiri among the front three with six defensive behind them sounds right.
Need to win and set up two home matches against Palace and Leicester and put more pressure on City and Spurs.

Doubt Keita will start in central midfield, as many posters suggest, if we play just two in there. And I don't think we'll play 3 central midfielders, with Fabinho needed in the back four, and Klopp usually prefering to play Salah central this season. So a two with Henderson and Wijnaldum is what I expect, with Shaqiri, Firmino and Mane behind Salah.

I think we will win, but this might be trickier than some are thinking.

In 2017/18 we scored 4 and 5 past Brighton (4-0, 1-5). This season so far though, their home record has been pretty impressive.

P10 W5 D3 L2
Goals 15:11


This is really not that many conceded, comparable to City and Arsenal (both have let in 10 at home). However, Brighton have not kept a clean sheet since October (5 matches)
Brighton's two home defeats came to Chelsea (1-2) and Spurs (1-2), whilst they have also drawn at home with Arsenal (1-1).

All in all, I think we should be ready for a relatively tough match rather be expecting to hand out a spanking.

This guy was the last person to say it on RAWK....

I was only saying my first comment in jest really.

I also think the Cheesehead thing is cringeworthy, tho I think most nfl support is cringeworthy.

I haven’t got much time for McCarthy as he has obviously underachieved with Rodgers.

I’ll support them regardless of who’s in charge tho as I have lived in Wisconsin and family still there, the whole state is crazy for them.

Had Lovren not got injured I would have been keen on Keita starting, but with Fabinho probably needing time to bed in as a CB, I would prefer a more established midfield. Just...less uncertainty...I think.

Keita to come on around 75 minutes would be ideal, I think.

Last season we saw this line-up at the Amex and we still won 5-1

migs
Trent
Gini
Lovren
Emre
Robbo
Milner
Hendo
Coutinho
Bobby
Mo

Didn't Klopp say last week it's possible Matip will be back for Brighton depending on how he copes with contact training? He's already back doing the fitness side of things so match sharpness won't be too much of a problem. In any case, Fab can come in and do well. He's good in the air and has VVD next to him so between them they can manage if Matip is not quite ready.

Hope Klopp drills it in to them to play with anger and intensity, do that and I strongly fancy us.

Won't be easy and we need to get the momentum going again.

Suspect with the injuries it will be 4 2 3 1.

Alisson

Trent, Fab, VVD, Robertsonio

Henderson, Gini

Cube, Firmino, Mane

Salah

Brighton are unpredictable and gave Arsenal a hard game. This will not be a pushover and we won't batter them at home.

Might be like the Burnley game so I'll go for a 2 - 0 with Mane and the Cube scoring.... and no more injuries please!

This is line-up I'd be going with. Think Shaqiri has earned the right to be starting ahead of Keita.

Unless I've missed something I reckon there's an outside chance that Lovren will be fit though, so that may change things in the middle if Fab isn't at CB.

Team picks itself for this one if Lovren and Matip aren't available to start.

Alisson

Trent Fabinho VVD Robertson

Hendo Gini

Shaqiri Firmino Mane

Salah

If Lovren is back then I'd probably stick Fabinho into midfield for Shaqiri (who hasn't been at his best the last few games) and tighten the midfield up.

Either way, I think they will look to target our right-hand side with Locadia staying high and wide. He's got a bit of pace and goal threat about him but overall I see a 1-3 victory to the Reds.

Any kind of win will do. Get the three pints and stop any outside noise of loss for form etc. Really big game for us (as they all are now I suppose!).

Have no reason to doubt these players, they’ve done wonders so far. Fabinho alongside Virgil should be ok for this one.

Sounds like Lovren is definitely out so I guess its VVD and Fabinho, he looked good against Wolves, so no problem there.
I guess that shapes the midfield a little too. But again depends on Henderson's fitness. If he is fit I expect him and Gini with Shaq and Mane wide.

With Wijnaldum's overall form & increasing influence of Fabinho, our lack of fullbacks, and his generally sub-par performances in midfield recently, I would like to see Milner strictly kept as our fullback cover from now on (for either side - I never want to see Moreno again). I also think its time we finally stick with 4-2-3-1 unless circumstances drastically dictate otherwise.

               Alisson

TAA  Fabinho   VVD   Robertson

      Henderson  Wijnaldum

  Shaqiri    Firmino    Mane

                Salah


I like this team/formation because it leaves us with good options on the bench or for injury (Fabinho in the MF 2, Keita/Lallana/Sturridge for the advanced 3, Origi for Salah).

A win opens up a gap again and puts pressure on City and Spurs. Last year we beat Brighton with Can playing in defence. I have no doubt Fabinho will do a fab job there. Also I think their missing goalie weakens them significantly. Would be good to get back to winning ways with 2 highly winnable home games to follow. Let’s have another long winning run.

Excited to see us continue with 4231 formation; our results using it this season have been almost flawless but what's also very important is that performances in these games were also very good and improving all the time.

Expect us to continue with the kind of performances we saw recently vs Newcastle and Arsenal and play in an angry manner after two consecutive defeats. Somebody has to pay for that and hopefully it'll be Brighton which would potentially set-us up nicely for another long undefeated run in the league.

Getting back to winning ways at this juncture could really have a profound positive impact on our run-in.

If we can score early, within the first 20 minutes or so, would make our jobs a lot easier. The front three should be relentless.
