Liverpool won the reverse fixture 3-0; Mane scoring once and Salah grabbing a brace
Liverpool have scored 2 or more goal in 7 of their last 10 games
Klopp could rest a few senior players in preparation for the 2nd leg against Roma in the CL Semi-Finals

Interesting to see how we line up here. Could do with a win to take the pressure off the Chelsea game, although it's not necessarily a must win at this stage, certainly must not lose though. Don't see there being wholesale changes (we don't have much choice!) so should be enough to take 3 points

Bound to rest at least 1 of the front 3 surely though? And maybe Van Dijk/TAA/Robertson?

There's a doubt over Mane I think so he may not play. Wouldn't be surprised if Robertson is rested, doubt Van Dijk will be though

3 CBs with TAA and Moreno as wing backs or TAA in midfield and Gomez RB?

It defelcts off the Stoke player and falls to Ings, so it shouldn't be offside?

Could have had a couple early in that half. Not been great but I think we can step it up in the second half when needed. 

Oh and that Butland is shit. Mad how he keeps getting linked with us

You'd have thought with their team on the verge of a Champions League final the crowd would show a bit more appreciation of their side.

You know as well as I do the Anfield crowd is horrific 90% of the time - only really Champions League games where it gets going

That’s pretty much as close to a stonewall handball you can get.

Everytime the Anfield crowd is quiet you hear the commentators say "I've never heard the crowd so quiet before at Anfield" when in reality it happens as often as it does in any other ground. I guess the myth has to be kept alive. xD

The referee has had a nightmare in general today

Really want to see Stoke go down but they've been value for a point so far, Liverpool look impotent when they drop any of their front three. 

This is a pretty terrible result for Liverpool, it virtually guarantees Spurs will get 3rd and even though they should see out Chelsea, it means they'll have to play a decent lineup against Brighton, potentially before the CL final, just to guarantee 4th. Add on that 4th means they have to qualify next season.

I wouldn't go that far but he's been pretty poor. Needed help from his linesman on that handball, definite penalty

Yes but I think there's more to it than just that. Even those who have started today have just been going through the motions really because it's impossible to play at full throttle like we do when you have three games (two huge ones) in the space of a week.

Penalty on Firmino I'd say pretty surely. It's not been a good performance but the ref's done Liverpool here.

You finished 4th last season, I'd say 4th again is pretty disappointing given how much you've supposedly improved.

He's just got so much wrong. Besides the penalty incident there was so many of the smaller decisions he got wrong too

4th together with the run we've had in Europe is good progress for me. Securing a place in next seasons competition while playing in it is something we needed to get back used to doing. The two previous times we'd qualified for it we had no European football whatsoever.

Hopefully we can get through on Wednesday and are able to play our strongest team for the remaining games in the league until 4th is wrapped up. The squad needs some serious work in the summer too.

You should get a girlfriend or learn about drugs and/or alcohol.

I'm fairly confident Carra fucked his mum or something.
