    No doubt it's a scandal, but does trying to make something of it help or hinder us in the match?

    Have to say that Cavani makes a huge difference to Utd.

    Oh well - Burnley no use, looks like we'll have to do it ourselves.

    The silver lining is that they’ll probably be satisfied with a draw so they will set up a defensive formation. Whereas we will have to go for the win as 1 point is no good for us.

    He has awarded United 5 penalties in his last 10 matches - and 1 against.

    He has awarded Liverpool 0 penalties in 14 matches - and 1 against.

    Still a long way to go in this season, even if we do the unthinkable and not win vs United.

    What is crucial though is for us to get into some sort of form as soon as possible and get a run going.

    yep, exactly right. I’d be happy with a point form this....the team that has form for the last 10-15 games wins this league - of course, I want a win and not a loss but we need to build our form, especially away form

    Shaw's tackle last night was a yellow. On the basis that yes he studded the guy and yes friend is a disgrace missing it BUT also its one foot going for ball and missing.

    Martial out potentially.
    Matic maybe (don't think he would have played anyway)

    We can see already that we are in big big trouble from set piece in this game. We need to decide on CB and henderson won't cut it with maguire and cavani attacking ball in from fernandes.

    We all need to pray that Matip is fit!

    Out of the box thinking but maybe Robbo at CB. He has the pace and positioning to play there but it does mean Milner will have to go to LB. If only Kostas was fit!

    We really need Hendo in midfield.

    Rashford will rightly target the space between Trent and whoever is CB next to him.

    Our front three will continue to misfire.

    Form alone, then are currently the best and we must be one of the worst. Doesn't look good for us.

    Ah come on, we’re not as bad as the form book suggests and they’re not as good. It’s going to be a very difficult game for sure but it will be for them also.

    Phillips maybe. :emoticon-0107-sweat

    If we go with the guys we have then maguire and cavani will for sure be big targets for utd from set piece. Phillip can at least stand in the danger zone and head it away.

    The issue is he will then be eaten alive by rashford in general play.

    Matip is a 50/50 shot apparently. He would struggle with rashford as well but would at least be well able to get in the right places.

    Its not easy.

    My ideal is henderson wijnaldum thiago midfield here. with the regular front 3 and then really we would be "just" without VVD in theory.

    the more likely thing is we pull the team apart to get henderson and fabinho at CB and then thats weak but also midfield is weaker as well.

    i don’t understand all this negativity. We are the champions and undefeated at home for 2 to 3 years. Our top three are bound to click at some time and I can see it happening this weekend. Klopp will make sure our players will be up for it. I will definitely keep Fabinho in the heart of the defence where he’s done really well. I would keep Henderson away and let him stay in midfield. But the key will be our attack.

    I think the very worst we will do is a draw and they of course will be coming for that result.
