    Henderson cannot start for me, far too much sideways passing slowing our overall play down - Klopp has come out and said Fabinho is ready so I would get him involved in this one.

    Alisson

    TAA
    VVD
    Gomez
    Robertson

    Fabinho
    Keita
    Wijnaldum

    Mane
    Firmino
    Salah

    Spurs away doesn't seem like the right game for Fabinho to make his debut.

    Milner will have had two weeks in a floatation tank. How can he not start?

    Milner Keita and Henderson.

    The ghost can take a break.

    Too big a game for Fabhino to make his debut.

    Firmino playing in Brazil 36 hours before so I’d start Shaqiri.

    The rest as you were

    Keita, Milner and Gini. Not the game you want Fabinho to start, but maybe an option from the bench.

    Best player in the middle last 18 months

    Fabinho will be on the bench. Hendo should be dropped to the bench. Agree on Firmino starting from the bench due to traveling.

    Now that the bench is settled :

    .......................... Alisson

    TAA ......... Gomez ...... VvD ....... Robertson

    ........................Wijnaldum

    .............Milner ....................Keita

    Shaqiri ................Salah ............ Mane

    Its a shame our players who didn't play at the world cup have to rejoin their international teams. We could have doubled down on the advantage of having fresh-er players like VVD, Gomez, Robbo, Milner & Gini.

    I can't see any changes from the line up that played Leicester, although I too would like to see Keita back in. I wonder how much better Hendo will look when he has Keita always looking to provide him an option. The pace of Joe & VVD will be v important against Moura.

    --------------Alisson-------------
    TAA---Moore---VVD----Robbo
    ---------------Hendo--------------
    --------Milner------Keita---------
    Salah------Firmino------Mane

    Whilst I like the idea of Shaqiri coming in - i'm not sure i'd want to drop any of the front three versus spurs. I think rotation begins in the Saints game at home.

    Jeez, I hate agreeing with DB, but I think this is quite sensible.

    I don't think Henderson was any worse than Wijanldum on Saturday, because he wasn't, so I don't mind which one drops out for Keita. Also possible that Firmino could be given a rest - he's not started the season that well anyway - but Shaqiri, Salah and Mane as the front three would be the shortest attack since Anglo-Zanzibar in 1896.

    As for Fabinho, yeah, he's not been considered good enough to start, or even feature in squads, so it seems rather odd to say he'll start against Spurs. Wonder what the problem is? Hope he isn't a total fucking disaster like his old team-mate Bakayoko was.

    I heard Mel Reddy say why would you have both Henderson & Fabinho on the bench? If you need to tighten up the game in the second half you bring on Henderson, who knows the opposition & knows the league, you would not bring on Fabinho. And you wouldn't bring Fabinho on for any other reason (unless you are short of cover for the defenders).

    Fabinho on the bench if Henderson starts makes sense (as does vice verso, albeit unlikely at this stage), but both on the bench doesn't make sense

    Cue both on the bench ….

    Except we know that Hendo doesn't have to play as a DM, he can play as a CM too - which is his natural position anyway. Fabinho can also play RB - meaning we wouldn't have to break up our CB partnership (Clyne may be on the bench too as cover though).

    I concur. They won't be expecting Salah to play there so it may catch them out resulting in an early goal or two.

    Fabinho was selected as right back for the brazilian squad, possibly offers the same to us, im sure Klopp spoke of his versatility upon signing as a key attribute. Henderson offers little/no versatility
