    Same XI for me (with a GK switch), the shape with Gordon on the wing was great.

    Ali

    Trent
    Matip
    Virgil
    Robbo

    Fabs
    Jones
    Hendo

    Gordon
    Bobby
    Jota

    It's not like we have a huge amount of options at the moment. Did Matip come off as a precaution, I don't think he will be risked if he's not 100%  so potentially Konate starts

    Trent---Konate--Virgil---Robbo

    Fluid front three for me.

    I think Ally O-C may be back for this one, in which case have him with Jota & Frim

    Gordon suits the RW better than Minamino, it's worth playing him for the shape it brings. Ox also works

    Konate for me as opposed to Matip, matips been great but he seemed bothered by something in that game to me.
    The more games konate gets I reckon he’s gonna be boss..
    he’s a man mountain …I love how he swings opposition players around ..

    I think I would suit the wing more than Minamino.

    Klopp said Matip substitution wasn’t tactical, they could see something wasn’t quite right, but seems like nothing serious. Ox is day-to-day.

    Doubt Matip starts. He's not a player you tell to play through any issues. Konate is fine for this and his pace and physicality will be handy against Zaha and Benteke.

    Gallagher is their main danger man from what I've seen this year. He's been terrific and Fabinho will need to stick to him tightly.

    Zaha is playing for Ivory Coast, most likely Edouard up front with Eze taking Zahas wide left spot

    Hes actually played over 30 games a few seasons for us. His rep seems to be worse than his actual record.

    Yeah I've had a look and earlier on he was a bit more reliable, but it's only January, and if he plays one more game he'll have equalled the total of the previous two seasons.

    Isn’t Matip’s issue the frequency of his injuries? He’d be available for 5 then moss 2 or 3?

    This season he’s been sound.
