Coote is reffing this one ffs :sigh:

Not that people shouldn't donate to food banks, but the pay per view thing has been ditched and this game is on Sky Sports and included as part of normal subscription.

Chris Kavanagh is the ref. Coote was due to be VAR but he's been dropped for Andre Marinner.

Thanks for the update!

Big game this one - would be a statement to win it without most/all of our back four, our talisman up front and our shiny new midfield signing

Leicester have a few injury problems of their own too though, so are there to be got at

3-1 (Jota x3)

baitman 20-11-20 08:55 AM

Will be a tough game given our depleted 1st team.
Leicester must be chomping.

Fredo 20-11-20 09:01 AM

Leicester have also got injury issues.

danperkins 20-11-20 09:07 AM

Their backline is fairly depleted too Soyuncu, Pereira out & Castange has a hamstring issue. They are in a fairly similar predicament as we are, was always going to be a tough game.

RichC 20-11-20 10:23 AM

It's going to be about who's back 4 is patched up best I think that and what our front 3 can do.

Alisson

Williams
Matip ?
Phillips/Williams
Robbo

Gini
Keita
Hendo?

Jota
Bob
Mane

Fredo 20-11-20 10:38 AM

I have a feeling Koumetio might start. Hes a naturally left sided centre half and is highly rated at the club.

Fredo 20-11-20 10:39 AM

Also, Milner will start.

memzey 20-11-20 10:43 AM

Isn't Trent back for this one?

Montana 20-11-20 11:10 AM

Trent will miss this and Atalanta but hopefully back for Brighton

Montana 20-11-20 11:13 AM

I think Amartey might be out for them too and Fofana possibly due to a knee issue

Pablo 20-11-20 11:31 AM

My guess:

Alisson

Milner
Matip
Phillips
Robbo

Gini
Keita
Hendo (Jones if Hendo isn't fit)

Jota
Bob
Mane

Not ideal but not that bad of a side really. I think Salah needed a rest at some point anyway, so that's a blessing in disguise.

Pepe79 20-11-20 11:45 AM

Robbo desperately needs a rest. And I know Gini is an Ironman, but even he must be must be at risk of fatigue at some point.

Shaggy 20-11-20 11:45 AM

Phillips v Vardy would be pretty terrifying.

Looks likely unless Thiago is available or even Fab

My thoughts exactly, this will be much tougher then West Ham, they played to Phillips' strengths, this will be the opposite.

:handshake: although any of them against Vardy is terrifying at the moment.

Hopefully they're thinking the same as us. Could be ugly though.

Agreed. Phillips and Matip is a good aerial partnership but not ideal for facing someone like Vardy :sigh:

:handshake: Williams' pace is decent isn't it? He'd probably be the better option of the two. Although whoever is playing I suspect Vardy will win a pen from...

I reckon it's at least 2 weeks from this week end and will miss Brighton next week.

Matip and Koumetio.

Shaggy 20-11-20 01:02 PM

Klopp confirms Salah misses the game and seems to be excusing his attendance at his brother's wedding.

I think Koumetio is way too raw. By far the least experienced of the limited options available.

Shaggy 20-11-20 01:04 PM

Hendo and Trent definitely out. Says "we will see about the others".

Highly rated by Klopp though and a left sided centre half, with passing ability. Might be too raw but I dont think weve got too many options to counter Vardy.

BigChief 20-11-20 01:06 PM

Thank God, that could have been a worse conference. At least Fab and Thiago aren't fully ruled out yet.

Agree he's the best match in terms of pace and power, I just doubt Klopp would chuck him straight in against Vardy who's one of the hardest forwards to play against in world football IMO.

I doubt Fabinho will play. Hes not started full training as far as I know and is completing rehab.

God I can't wait to see Thiago play again but Fabinho is even more important to have back for this one. Praying he makes it!

Shaggy 20-11-20 01:11 PM

Ridiculous that some people have got their Christmas trees up and Thiago still hasn't fucking played at Anfield. :rant:

Fuck' sake! We'll miss him, especially in front of a makeshift back four.

Shaggy 20-11-20 01:18 PM

You'd take absolutely any kind of scabby win eh. Just fucking win and get the fuck out of there.

BobTheCharmer 20-11-20 01:19 PM

Anything that isn't a defeat should be grasped with open hands.

BigChief 20-11-20 01:20 PM

Any news on a likely Leicester starting XI?

Pablo 20-11-20 01:22 PM


Sensing there's a real siege mentality in the squad ahead of this one. I think we'll be really up for proving a point here!

:haha:

Leicester have got a makeshift backline, much as ours and we're playing at home. A win for me. If we can't get it, not the end of the world as well.
