Any thoughts on team for Sunday?
I would go with something like this

              Mignolet

Clyne  Lovren  Matip  Milner

 Wijnaldum        Henderson
             Coutinho

    Lallana          Firmino
               Origi

Origi ahead of Sturridge and Can on the bench too

I definitely think the shape and pace is a lot better with Lallana as that advanced midfielder and with Coutinho on the left. You can't have Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum as they are too static. (even more so when Lucas is there instead of Henderson).

I'd go with

                                Mignolet

Clyne            Lovren              Matip                Milner

                      Wijnaldum     Henderson
                               
                                    Lallana

Firmino                                                         Coutinho

                                    Sturridge

You must be confident Seanie? United going very well, playing decent football, scoring a few, tight at the back; Liverpool in a bit of a slump, showing a bit of weariness.

Actually almost reverse roles from build-up to Anfield game, although Liverpool are not capable of parking the bus with the robustness United showed that night.

                                    Sturridge

Yeah, i think thats the best team available with Mane away, although i wouldnt be that surprised to see Origi get the nod ahead of Sturridge
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

Origi may have shit the bed against Plymouth. Sturridge scored against Sunderland before he pulled his headstring, so that might get him a start.

Sky hyping Sundays game to its max. Another boring 0-0 on the cards which will probably suit Liverpool more.

Liverpool have been poor and unimaginative in the last 3 games now. Sunderland, Plymouth and Southampton. If they are similar on Sunday, they'll lose at least 2-0.

Hoping Coutinho will improve things. When he came on the other night you could immediately see the difference be makes in terms of seeing passes and trying to beat players.   He's not going to be match fit though.

 Have a bad feeling about Sunday.  Rooney to beat Charlton's record as a sub with a last minute winner is a recurring nightmare.

Have Matip and Henderson been injured long?

Henderson got injured a few weeks ago. He came off against Stoke I think. Matip has been out a bit longer. Henderson has been missed, largely because Can has been poor.

I see most of you picking Matip, Henderson and Coutinho in your teams. Big risk bringing 3 back in at once?

Nothing wrong with a bit of wishful thinking! :)

If Matip and Hendo are fit then they have to start no question.

More importantly!!, I hope we don't wear that illuminous yellow kit at the weekend as we seem to lose or not win nearly everytime we wear it.

Plus we can hardly roll out the 'we couldn't see out players' excuse either

Not seeing "Hendo" (as some of you grown men call him) is understandable as he usually disappears when playing for Liverpool. A truly awful footballer.

Had a little dust in my eye reading this...

https://www.balls.ie/football/plymouth-fan-356356


That's brilliant. There are lots of really good people out there....we need more stories about them and their kindness.

Don't come in here much but having a wee snoop with the week that's in it. How do ye put up with this Stallion....ye probably all have him/her on ignore at this stage.

That reminds me...
I'll have a shower and then phone my brother up
