    Biggest game of the season just 3 days away. Villareal rested 10 players yesterday but still won 2-0 away at Valencia. Also secured 4th in La Liga and CL qualification next season.
    They're a very good team, no doubt about it. So this will be tough.

    I'd go:

    Ming
    Clyne Lovren Kolo Moreno
    Milner Allen
    Lallana Firmino Coutinho
    Sturridge

    Sadly we might have one to many injuries to win by 2 goals but it will surely be a great European night at Anfield. Fingers crossed we can do this.

    These injuries have really really hurt us.

    I wasn't particularly impressed by them last week but they will probably be wanting to see improvement just as we do.

    I think we can do it but any of the sloppy, tired and indecisive shit we've seen in the last week and we're out.

    It's our last meaningful game of the season if we don't win ... I really will be shocked if we come out like that.

    Yes, that's the side I would probably go for. Although I woudk be tempted to look at options for Benteke and Sturridge to start, especially as Firmino has been total shit for months.

    Yeah, I thought about Benteke and as you say Firmino hasnt gotten into the form he had prior to the injury. But I think that will set us up to attacking and a bit vulnerable on the break.
    Benteke is probably a better option off the bench if we're chasing a goal late in the game.

    Not holding out much hope. Think this could be 1-1 or we might nick it 2-1 but I think we'll fall short. That was a really shitty result last Thursday.

    Benteke the saviour! He probably needs an Ojo for service though. It is written in the stars

    I would also consider both Benteke and Sturridge. But I assume we will go for a more safe option to keep them at bay the first half. An early goal against and it will be impossible to break them down.

    I dont want Lucas in there. I would love to see Milner put on the right together with Coutinho and Lallana behind the striker, but the central with Lucas and Allen will be to slow, to static and to easy overplayed. Can is a big big loss in this game. So is Origi.

    wasn't impressed with villarreal first leg, then again was less impressed with klopp's tactics going into the game.

    of course it's still doable but I see us going out on away goals.

    as far as the XI goes, it picks itself really...lucas and skrtel are finished here.

    klopp, please put whatever differences you have with sturridge aside for this game, enough faffing about...we need him to have any chance of going through.

    I fucking love emre can , it'd be massive if he were fit enough to play. His intensity and work rate also goes some way to prevent us dawdling when in  possession.

    3-1. Lallana to score two and a cracker from milner

    That just proves that they're not bottlers like we are.
    Too harsh?

    They've toughed out lots of games they could have, and probably should have lost. Something we did all the time back in the day.
