    I'd play Origi ahead of frim for this..

    He will suit counter attacking game much sweater than frim..

    Henderson pinging balls from deep, with Keita and winjaldum dominating midfield, covering the frim donkey work, he does so effectively too..

    Keita box to box.. with wijnut also covering deep to allow Henderson to get further forward at times

    Henderson long balls and passing of late has been delicious..

    They beat Genk 6-2 and lost 2-3 to Napoli. It seems goals are guaranteed

    I certainly wouldn’t want to get them in a q/f or semi.

    I'd play Keita over Ox in this one simply because of he's technically far superior and ditto defensively. Keeping possession will be key as we don't want to give them the time and space to build attacks. So Keita with Hendo & Gini behind him should be our best midfield as it stands. I'll go with Modo's team.

    Its a tricky one...Keita is going to give you more intelligent probing runs and passing than brute force Ox but Keita has that tendancy to play like Bambi defensively.  If the supporting midfielders get their job right then Id play Keita but Id actually start Ox first and then bring Keita later if Ox doesnt work out.

    Keita has by far the best defensive stats though (on a per match basis) bar Fabinho of course, and is streets ahead of Ox. However he does seem to switch off occasionally, ending up in being dispossessed and thereby offering the opposition an attacking opportunity. However I'd take his ball winning, better creativity and superior passing and leave VvD to mop up any errors. ;)

    Keita suits European game more than the Premier League. This will be a good match for him to get his form going after scoring a goal against Bournemouth. Salzburg likes to play high tempo quick attacking game. They also utilise a lot of midfield overlap to get into the box to create chaos. If we were to deploy Wijnaldum and Henderson as the midfield 2, we need control.

    Keita has done nothing yet to show he should be starting in a do-or-die match. Would much prefer he continue to get a few tune up matches to build his confidence. A poor performance as we get eliminated tomorrow and it would be knives out for him. He doesnt need that.

    I'm quite concerned about this game.

    Hopefully it's more like the first half against them at Anfield than the second.

    I'd go Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner in midfield. Maybe not the most creative. But we need their energy and pressing.
    This game has got disaster written all over it, and everyone and his dog would like us to get dumped into the Europa league.
    We need to get a result here, as the negativity from finishing 3rd in the group could influence the rest of the season.

    Gini and Lovren back in training today btw, so I'm guessing both will play.

    Make sense, since all we need is a point. With these 3, you won't get those expansive style of play, but a more controlled and compact midfield making us hard to break. Focus is key. If they can all focus on task at hand, especially Gomez if he starts or even Lovren, and not ball watching or go wandering trying too hard to intercept the ball, we be fine.

    Milner played full 90 against Everton and Bournemouth, so doubt he’d start his 3rd game in 6 days. He’s likely on the bench for this one.

    Good point. Ox or Keita then, and I'm fine with either. RBS don't exactly have the most solid of midfields/defences and either of those two could hopefully run straight through it.

    Yea I’d be fine with either as well, though Mr Fragile scares me with starting 2 games in a span of a couple of days so Ox may be the safest option. Plus i like his ability to unload with a long range shot.
