    What a game to kick of this season’s CL campaign. Bloody hell.

    AC Milan have started their season well with 3 straight wins. This past weekend they beat Lucas Leiva’s Lazio 2-0 with the greatness that is Ibrahimovic coming off the bench and predictably scoring. The buggar is 39! Superb.

    Milan generally field a 4231 and players to watch out for are the previously mentioned Ibra and of course Olivier Giroud but Trent will have his plate full against Rebic (if he starts) who plays the number 11 position.

    I think we’ll see changes as we saw in our first CL game last season but a couple were down to the fact that we played Everton the weekend before. Less said about that game. It was a great win at Ajax considering the two players we lost for that game. I think we will see at least 2-3 changes to yesterday’s team; my pop is as follows:

    Alisson, Trent, Konate, Virgil, Robbo, Henderson, Keita, Thiago, Mane, Jota and Mo.

    Tsimikas could even come in for Robbo and Fabinho and Milner could obviously and easily start.

    Milan are a good side but can be got at. 1-0 for us.

    I think Gomez will start over Konate with the latter pencilled in for his debut in the league Cup.

    Really looking forward to this one. I used to be in awe at the Milan sides of the late 80s early 90s. Now nowhere near that level but to me their name still holds something special. First time at Anfield for them and one of only two teams that have won the cup more than us.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see some rotation here, afterall we have 7 games in 3 weeks.
    Maybe give Matip a rest, either here or this weekend. Keita possible start now Elliot will be out for months. No rest for the front 3, coupla them might get rested against Norwich in the LC.

    Need to get 3 points on deck to kick off our campaign to a good start.

    As it’s first game in the competition, I don’t think Klopp will change things too much (though you never know), so same team as the last game, except midfield where Fabinho starts, with Henderson, Keita and Thiago competing to start alongside him.

    As 5 subs are allowed, I can expect numerous changes, especially if things are going well, Gordon might even be on the bench

    Kaide Gordon is already playing today for the U19’s in the UEFA Youth League.

    Something tells me that Milner will get the nod today.

    Hope to see keita given a run out. He started decent enough this season and then was left out which I thought was harsh

    Crazy!

    Also, 5 central defenders and 3 keepers in the match day squad.
    Yet some will still claim we’re not light in certain areas.

    Origi starting must be a cunning Klopp plan. There’s no way Milan could have prepared with him in mind!

    Rather give Minamino a shot then origi but I hope he proves us wrong and plays well

    I wouldn’t have played matip. Two games in 3 days??? He won’t start againest palace

    Confident of a good performance with massive support

    Rebic is a handful. Got to make sure we keep him close.

    Reminiscent of last season, plenty of the ball, lots of opportunities, not clinical, opposition scores.

    Instead of 3-0 we are 1-2!! Ridiculous!!
    Milan could not pass the center of the field and scored TWICE!!!
