1 Atkinson, see other thread.
2 Left back will Ben be back / Delph out.
3 Mendy at left back.
4 Our full backs leaving our centre halfs to deal with the Liverpool front 3 on their own too often.
5 Fern, expecting too much of him now. He will be put under huge pressure.
6 No Kevin.
7 Sterling possibly bottling it again.
Sorry to seem negative but we have issues and I am not hopeful.
I think Kev not in the side against the dippers might do us more good; they'll be less 'up for it' due to over condidence knowing we are weaker and of our poor record. Last season we were under pressure to keep our unbeaten record and maybe underestimated them knowing we were superior. This time around, they have to deliver so the pressure is on them. Mo Salah is misfiring, in fact their attack is not as prolific as last season although they've improved at the back. If we play to our strengths, We could get a result as long as we dont have brain farts.
Potentially they could smash us but suspect it will be cagey affair going either way
