Kweev

Neco
Gomez
Phillips
Tsmikas

Morton
Ox
Jones

Plus 3

It is on Thursday night.

I think we'll go stronger than that with it being a semi final. I don't see more than a couple of kids playing (Williams and Morton) I don't think both Gomez and Phillips will start I can see it being one of them plus Konate. Fullbacks I agree TAA will be rested and Robbo could do with games.

Midfield is complicated by the lack of available forwards. Salah and Mane are away at ACN, Firmino has Covid so won't be available. I think we would have gone with a front 3 of Jota, Origi and Minamino if they are all fit, but Origi and Minamino are probably doubtful.My guess would be Ox and Jones would be the two midfielders who could cover up front. Possibly Gordon could come in there too.

Midfield I think will be Morton plus a couple of the senior guys with a fair bit of rotation perhaps 45 mins each for a couple of guys.

I think either:

Kelleher
Williams
Gomez
Konate
Robertson
Morton
Jones
Ox
Minamino
Jota
Origi
Or

Kelleher
Williams
Gomez
Konate
Robertson
Morton
Henderson/Milner
Jones
Ox
Jota
Gordon

I think an issue for the front 3 is, bearing in mind we have so few fit, do we save them for the league (and thus give up on scoring goals in this game), or use the strongest line up we have in this game and hope they will stay fit for the league matches too. I don't want to be knocked out at this stage by Arsenal, so I'd do the former if the result is a credible forward line - otherwise I'd give up on the Carabao and rest all first 11 players. .

Agreed, focus on these two legs and Shrewsbury. Screw the Brentford game, if we drop points there its no great threat to our top four position.

Kell
TAA
Gomez
Konate
Robbo
Keita
Ox
Fab
Morton
Jota
Minamino

And in the second leg, bring in Thiago, Hendo, Firmino and Alison to really test Arsenal's priority for a top four challenge with their league game on the weekend.

Almost 2 weeks until the next league game though. Bobby and possibly Origi back by then.

I think it depends who out of the other forwards is available, but if people are out I think it's a possibility

Taki, Jota, Ox up top I think

Midfield of Fab, Hendo and perhaps Jones

Robbo, Konate, Gomez or Virg and trent at right back. Maybe Neco right back if trent is feeling below 100%

Fuckin hope we do it. Arsenal a lot better than they have been and there is an argument that with Mo, Sadio and Naby all away - as well as Thiago and Firmino out too - that arsenal are possibly favourites for this tie

Out of curiosity what are the EFL and FA rules relating to postponement of fixtures? The PL rules were based on players having played in the PL, if the EFL have similar rules (anyone who has played in the EFL cup) given the number of kids we've fielded in the last few years we'd need about 40 players out to get the game postponed

Also and this is really pedantic, but this is a 2 legged tie, if this game has to be postponed but the second leg can go ahead would that still be at Anfield? The draw had us at home in the 2nd leg which is potentially a small advantage, but if the 2nd leg then becomes the first leg because the first leg is postponed to after the second leg that changes the draw somewhat doesn't it? It would have been far easier if they had just made the semis 1 leg as everyone wanted them to
