    Rumours going on that Moreno may start at LB with Milner moving into midfield to cover for injuries, please let this be untrue....
    Damn.. surely Sturridge and Can come in with Coutinho dropping into the midfield?

    I would honestly rather us bring in somebody untested like Stewart or Grujic than have Moreno at LB...

    Always Lucas to step into the midfield too if needed.

    I like some attributes of Moreno but bringing him into a high profile game isn't the one to do it in..

    He's just a liability and United would exploit it. He's good getting forward but he's way too eager - against a mid-tabled team who will park the bus, it's not too bad but against a high-quality side like United, he'd be caught out too many times.

    Lucas, Grujic and Stewart are all solid options to bring in to the midfield. It would allow Henderson to compensate for Lallana's absence by surging forward, leaving Can and (presumably) Lucas as more defensive protectors.

    It wouldn't be worth having Coutinho drop down - I don't think we should touch our front 4 at all.

    You don't rate Sturridge?

    I meant Sturridge being part of a front 4 in a 4-2-3-1, although I'm not sure Klopp would want to change formation considering our success with 4-3-3...

    I'm pretty sure Sturridge has played in a 4-2-3-1 before under Rodgers during the start of the Suarez ban.

    In terms of pressing we're always gonna be slightly less effective with Sturridge, but I don't think we can afford to drop Coutinho down to midfield if we play 4-3-3. Therefore I can only see a 4-2-3-1 being the best option.

    Karius starts as expected, Sturridge too no Wijnaldum, Lallana on the bench.

    Mata on the bench for Utd.

    Can looks like his really struggling with his positioning. He wants to play where Henderson is playing and is just standing on his toes, rather than opening the pitch up.
