    I wish the Capital One Cup final was taking place this weekend. We'd win it.

    Henderson reportedly vomiting at half-time, which may go some way to explaining why he was off the pace compared with last week's great captain's performance.

    Lallana was quiet, for sure, as was Firmino.

    As if tonight was Coutinho's first ever European goal.
    Hopefully he's better by the weekend. It was never going to be an easy game with Man Utd at home and needing to score.

    Probably caught between trying to help the fullbacks and trying to get forward? We seem to either be terrible or amazing and not much in between..

    seriously getting jealous of you guys having klopp.

    Such a good appointment, and as long as your club don't mess up the transfers to much, I cant see how he wont be a success with you.

    No shame in him not winning anything this year, given the situation he came into, but the fight he is showing at the moment, especially in big games, should give all of you a lot of confidence for next year.
    The thing I'm most excited about is we haven't even seen the best of Klopp. His presence will help us in the transfer market - the number of players who have not only said he's a great manager but also their favourite manager and his reputation from Germany will help loads. And then we'll also see what Klopp can do with a squad he's helped shape.

    Sparta Prague - currently 2nd in Czech league
    Borussia Dortmund - currently 2nd in German league and thrashed Spurs 5-1 over 2 legs
    Braga - 4th in Portugese league and some 17 points behind the leaders
    Athletic Bilbao - 6th in La Liga
    Sevilla - 5th in La Liga and won the EL for the last 2 years
    Villarreal - 4th in La Liga
    Shakhtar Donetsk - 2nd in Ukraine league although I think they lost a number of their best players recently

    Lot of decent sides in there..

    UEFA charges Manchester United and Liverpool over Europa League trouble. United charged over crowd trouble, throwing objects and blocked stairways, with Liverpool charged over chants, fireworks, objects, trouble and arriving late.

    Jordan Williams, meanwhile, is being investigated by the club for an alleged Munich air disaster tweet.

    Emojis of an aeroplane and hands clapping posted on midfielder’s account, but he says he's been hacked.

    Silly boy.

    Dortmund and us seemed destined to meet, but I hope it's in the final four or even the final. We need to avoid Aubameyang for as long as possible. 35 goals this campaign. Christ.

    Sparta Prague were exceptional by all accounts last night. They didn't have the initiative after the first leg, but were systematically brilliant according to reports. I'd probably opt for them or Braga, if given the choice.

    Sevilla have EL experience and will be troublesome, as will Athletic and Villarreal.

    Indeed. He may very well have been hacked, or had it posted by a mate thinking he was funny, but it's hard to imagine him getting away without punishment here.

    I'd happily get an easy route to the final if possible..

    April is going to be a tough month. We're already up to 8 games (and will be 9 if we progress to the EL semi-finals).

    Braga first, then.

    Really hope we get far in this. European success and a decent run will fill our lads with experience.

    Do you think we should just focus on the EL now? There would only be 5 games left (and you would only need to win potentially 3 of those).

    It's tough because I keep hopefully looking at the Premier League table and wondering if there's any way we could sneak 4th (7 and 8 points behind Man City and Arsenal with a game in hand..)

    I think a City win this weekend would probably push top four out of our reach. We should just be taking every game one game at a time, focusing on it and performing to our optimum. With our confidence and momentum right now, anything's possible. Klopp's brought the enjoyment factor back. Let's not think too far ahead.

    Yea I think I've just convinced myself that Man City/Utd are going to draw this weekend
    You are right though, if City win and if we don't get a result against Southampton, it again wrecks any slimmer of hope to progress up the league table.

    Klopp's enthusiasm is infectious even watching/listening to him from afar as a supporter. Must be doing wonders to the players at the club.

    Bit nervous about this draw now..

    Jordan Williams should be sacked. Can't have that behaviour at our club. Hacked or not hacked.

    How come United not being charged for their chants too? Both clearly did it, both should face the consequences.

    I genuinely think they will, both clubs are misfiring at the moment.

    If I can't get an away ticket I'm buying a Dortmund shirt and going in the Südtribüne, I am going to that match.
