He was immense, morphed in to Van Dijk for a little while there as well. Another string to his bow.

My favourite player as he’s a true team player. Most strikers will go for goal at every opportunity but Bobby is so unselfish & works his bollocks off all game & every game. He’s so bloody talented too & the complete package to me.

Based on what we know now, I'd go for this, gives us lots of fluid options to adapt to them as well.

To be honest I don't know why Sturridge started ahead of him last night.

Roberto Firmino missed Friday's victory over Huddersfield with a muscle tear in his thigh, but Klopp says the striker "is likely to be fit" for their trip to Barcelona.

The Reds face the La Liga leaders in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday and the German was quick to dismiss social media rumours which suggested the Brazilian may miss the rest of the season.

"Do not believe 3% of what is on social media," said Klopp.

"Roberto Firmino is not out for the rest of the season. After training he felt it a little bit and this morning he still felt it. It's a small tear but it's Bobby and he is a machine."

Asked whether he has a plan for Barca talisman Lionel Messi, Klopp said he "had not thought about Barcelona for a second".

"We have enough time," Klopp told Sky Sports. "Five days is enough to prepare.

"So many tried there [to win in Barcelona] and it's not likely that it will happen for us there but it is possible. From Saturday morning I will think about them intensively and we will have a plan for sure."

I'd nearly go as far to say Firmino is essential for this. Such an opportunity for a team that love to play from the back.

I wouldn't risk him whatsoever. Use Origi. We still have the second leg at home, and two Premier League games to think about.

He has time, massive loss if he doesn't make but he is also essential for the reutrn leg and other prem games. See how it goes I suppose.

Keita played LW in 4231 earlier in the season and it didnít suit him. Donít want to disrupt him now heís finding form in his midfield position. Origi has done well there when heís come in. Play him and save a pair a legs in midfield for next Saturday.

Yep it is probably the worst position to put him in. It just takes too much away from his overall game plus he does not have the raw pace or power that Mane or even Origi would bring to that wide role.


If Bobby is out I would prefer Origi in the centre and leave Mane and Mo to rule the flanks.

The choices are to play Derek on the left and Mane through the middle.

Or play Sturridge who looked understandably rusty last night but may fair better v Barca with those minutes on the pitch.

Or a compact 4-4-1-1 with Salah up front which we have played before.

Sturridge should play no part in the Barca game.

Sturridge against Huddersfield is OK. Against Barcelona it'd be like playing them with 10men. That'd go down as a monumental fuck up.

We'll come up with another solution if the worst comes to the worst. Perhaps playing Naby left wide in a pressing role, although he struggled there early on in his career.

We'll press from the front away and Sturridge isn't at all suited to that and neither is Origi as evidenced by being booked at half time away to Porto.

Shame Oxlade-Chamberlain is not match fit. I expect Origi will play against Barca but wouldn't be surprised to see Shaqiri start.

Sturridge played and scored v PSG earlier in the season. But yeah, not convinced he’d be the right option v Barca.

You're kidding aren't you? Play Storage away at Barca? They'd run rings around him. We'd be starting the game with 10 men.

I wouldnít start him, I reckon Sadio through the middle.

But heís not as shite as you endlessly make out. He looked off the pace last night but heís barely played so that is fairly understandable.

Makes more sense to play Mane or Salah on the middle and back fill on the wing imo.

I thought Shaqiri played really well when he came on yesterday, not sure though how much Klopp trusts him, or if he's fit enough to play from the start. A fully fit in-form Ox would be magical

Or just Firmino, of course.
