Jota and Bobby ruled out for Leeds.
You just gotta ride Salah-Mane-Diaz for the next two games then start Taki-Div-Gordon in the FA Cup next week. Unless Jota and Firmino are fit before then.
Fab-Thiago-Keita for Leeds, with Hendo in for Keita at Wembley (they're not leaving out Hendo for a cup final).
The big question for me is who is first choice CB at the moment along Van Dijk? Konate's time is coming very soon.
Div is suited to games against hackers like leeds.Listening to quite a few of the poddies this week from Liverpool journos it sounds like Divock will get a go against Leeds. If that happens I expect Sadio to start on the left and be replaced with Diaz around the 60th minute or so.
Liverpool have scored more goals than City (by 1 goal - one less game though). Unfortunately Liverpool have conceded more as well.We need a 7 point swing to Catch Citeh.
After the Leeds game it's a possible 39 points for both teams remaining.
We need a big 5 or 6 nil victory against someone as city are more likely to run up a big score than us.
I hope we do run them down, but the maths says it's gonna be hard.
Got bored so went through all Liverpool’s draws and losses
2 losses - Ox started in midfield both games
6 draws - Jones started in the first 4 drawers, Milner started in the last two.
Liverpool need another word class mid and Ox and Milner should never start again.
Jones is young so I am ok with him.The first part of your last sentence is widely supported in these parts.
But there is not many situations where we would start Jones or Milner or Ox in midfield and start Fabinho and Thiago, whose numbers when they start together are staggering.
Jones is fine, Milner is playing less and less. Ox started in midfield on the weekend and Fabinho didn't play at all, and we still won. I think Ox will probably move on in the summer, especially if we are into Bellingham in a meaningful way, but I don't like the "put a line through them for ever" attitude. Milner goes down as a great of the club (and will probably be remember primarily as a Liverpool player), and Ox had the two goals v City in 2018 and was the highest scorer in the PL the year we won it who didn't play all his time as one of the front three.
