Milner and Gomez are back, so thats a good sign.
Possibly a strong lineup of:
Williams Gomez Matip Larouci
Jones Milner Lallana
Elliott Origi MinaminoMarch 2, 2020 at 12:56 pm #1831458
Actually Elliott is not available, so someone like Ox can step in insteadMarch 2, 2020 at 1:16 pm #1831469
Hard to predict the line up here.
Can see the likes of Adrian, Matip, Hoever, Jones, Minamino, Origi, Milner, Lallana, Williams, Chirivella play.
That doesn’t necessarily rule out the likes of Gomez, Fabinho or even Salah, Mane play. The argument there being some of them need to bounce back into form before Atletico.
I want the win here.
I want to get past Chelsea.March 2, 2020 at 6:04 pm #1831561
Since EPL title is almost over why do not we use our usual 11?? We want the cup since we do not know what we can do in Europe and how far we can go…March 2, 2020 at 6:17 pm #1831562

Last time we played Chelsea in the FA Cup was 8 years ago when we lost 2-1 to them in the Final. Ramires and Drogba put them 2 up before sub Carroll pulled one back and should have equalized but Cech pulled off a worldly to preserve their lead. Starting XI that day: Reina, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Enrique, Gerrard, Henderson Downing, Spearing, Suarez and Bellamy. Chelsea had 3 former players of ours too on their bench that game in Meireles, Sturridge and Torres.
No bloody clue how this game will end up. Could be anything. We will concede as our current ‘open-ness’ since Henderson got injured is of concern. 6 goals in the last 3 games. Shite.
I’m going for a Chelsea win.March 2, 2020 at 7:19 pm #1831574
I’d play a mixture. We need some strong 1st teamers in there aswell as jones, Williams and Adrian.
Go out of this and the cl next week then all we have left is to play the season out.
It’s going to be a very tough game.March 2, 2020 at 9:24 pm #1831592
Maybe something like…
Williams. Matip. Gomez. ????
Milner, Chirivella, Milner
Minamino, Origi. Jones
Doesn’t fill me full of confidence that team though.March 3, 2020 at 7:55 am #1831641
I hope we don’t see that team ginger. No problem with Adrian, willians and jones starting but I’d play a few 1st teamers.
Some don’t look sharp after the break.March 3, 2020 at 9:16 am #1831663
Williams, Jones and Chirivella have played every min of every FA Cup game so far.
I can see that continue.
Just realised I’ve included Milner twice but I defo think he’ll start. Very likely be captain. Be very surprised if Minamino doesn’t start, same with Origi and Matip.
That leaves 3 more spaces.
Lovren or Gomez?
Left back? I guess that could be Milner
Midfielder or attacker? Ox?
Maybe we’ll see a half-ish for Mane and a half for Salah.March 3, 2020 at 1:20 pm #1831763
Playing a weakened team for this game is a disgrace and embaressment to the club and fans. There will be millions watching us get beat yet again and the players themselves will hate Klopps tendency to throw away the chance of winning two mayor trophies each season. The lads will have been sick on Sunday watching city win yet another easy trophy despite the incredible efforts of almost all our players this season. It makes the club appear arrogant and its shameful to the fans who will travel to London to watch us struggle against an average Chelsea team. I was hoping the owners would have a word with Klopp but no he will again be stubborn and play a crap team full of more than a few no hopers. As massive as they are focusing on two trophies each season is incredibly stupid and not one player in the sqaud will buy into this. Yes he’s teh best manager since Shanks but he is also arrogant and stubborn and also makes some very stupid decisions.March 3, 2020 at 2:47 pm #1831806
I’m kinda disappointed that Critchley has left, it kinda forces Klopp’s hand, with Neil there we could have easily played a team out of our reserves but with Critchley taking up the post at Blackpool I think Klopp will use more of the senior players as he knows them better than the kids but who knows, he might surprise us all. I reckon he will play a mixture of both as the lads should be fresh and raring to go, they will want to bounce back with a win straight away. There are a few youth players that deserve to be in the team as they are the ones that got us here and we need to reward that kinda success if we are to guide the next crop of players into the first eleven.March 3, 2020 at 4:05 pm #1831839
I would like the team that played Watford to play tonight, although maybe a couple of changes, we played so poorly & it would be perfect if the team could get v Watford out of their system & beat Chelsea.March 3, 2020 at 6:12 pm #1831879
I really want us to win tonight, but based on the respective line-ups that will probably be played, I’ve got a strong suspicion that we will lose. To that extent, I’ve got a minuscule (don’t want to go overboard here…..it is literally a minuscule) of sympathy for the underlying sentiment of timetogobr’s post from earlier today. As usual, he was expressed himself in a totally inappropriate way for that of a true Liverpool supporter, but somewhere buried in the overblown and coarse rhetoric, there’s something that is resonating a little with me. Of course, we have no idea how events will play out as we could play a strong team and lose, a weak team and win….or any combination of team and win or lose. I just don’t want to be watching the next round draw and thinking that we’ve missed a good opportunity for a good day out and a possible trophy.March 3, 2020 at 6:45 pm #1831885
No problem with that team
Would have played Matip instead of vvd though
Origi needs to start doing much more when given the chance
Willians, Jones and Adrian deserve their places
Fabhino needs game time as he is very rusty. Chiverlla deserves a run at some stageMarch 3, 2020 at 6:46 pm #1831887
Liverpool: Adrian; Williams, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Lallana, Jones; Mane, Origi, Minamino
Yea strong enough team.March 3, 2020 at 7:07 pm #1831894
Strong bench. Would love to go through but it’s always a tough place to goMarch 3, 2020 at 7:11 pm #1831896
Sean, I think Klopp omitted Matip to get back our usual solidity of rarely conceding or losing with the Van Dijk/Gomez partnership.
Also to get them back in sync for Atletico next week.
I like the team, a good mix of stars and squad players, let’s hope they can do the jobMarch 3, 2020 at 8:03 pm #1831915
Ridiculous goal. Something goes wrong with our defence….March 3, 2020 at 9:11 pm #1831935
Next to no presence in midfield tonight.
Fabinho poor again.
Missing Hendo massively.
Even Gini or Milner would make a difference.
Don’t understand Milner not playing.March 3, 2020 at 9:34 pm #1831942
Really bad in midfield. Fabhino has been poor recently but tonight was shocking. Not sure how origi stayed on that long.
Fabhino should been off not jones.
We were walked through at times. 3 defeats in 4 games and our blip has come as expected.
Really need to bounce back on sat
We look poor all over the pitch
