Fabinho and Mignolet to start: Predicted Liverpool line-up against Chelsea in Carabao Cup



Liverpool face Chelsea back-to-back with our first clash coming in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Reds have won all their games this season and looked comfortable against Southampton on Saturday.

The game against Chelsea on Saturday could be a real test for our title ambitions but this league cup clash should see both teams resting their players.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t made a lot of changes in a winning formula so far but we should see a number of squad players making appearances against the Blues on Wednesday.

Liverpool need to keep the momentum going and here is out predicted line-up against the Blues.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Simon Mignolet (GK)

The Belgian hasn’t played a single game for us so far but this will be a chance for the former Sunderland keeper to star between the sticks.

Nathaniel Clyne (RB)

Trent Alexander-Arnold has kept Nathaniel Clyne out of the starting XI but the former Saint should get a start at Anfield on Wednesday.

Joel Matip (CB)

The central-defender scored in the win over Southampton and should continue as we must rest Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.

Nathaniel Phillips (CB)

Phillips impressed during pre-season and the youngster should receive a start in this clash against the Blues.

Alberto Moreno (LB)

Andy Robertson has been excellent throughout the season but the Scot needs rest and Alberto Moreno should start on Wednesday.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

Henderson was excellent in the win over the Saints and his passing will be crucial in the game against Chelsea.

Fabinho Liverpool

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian hasn’t started a game for us this season but the clash against the Blues is the perfect opportunity to get some minutes under the belt.

Naby Keita (CM)

The Guinean got 20 minutes against the Saints but should start against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Xherdan Shaqiri (RW)

Shaqiri was the best player against Southampton but only got 45 minutes, meaning he should start on the wing for the Reds on Wednesday.

Daniel Sturridge (ST)

Sturridge got a goal in the win over PSG but didn’t start against Southampton. The Englishman would be facing his former side and must do a great job.

Dominic Solanke (LW)

Solanke hasn’t played any football this season but could get a run out as Klopp must save the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

(Video) Watch Alisson and Roberto Firmino provide hilarious responses in latest “Bezzies”



Roberto Firmino of Liverpool

Liverpool have come up with another Bezzies video, this time focussing on Brazilian pair Alisson and Roberto Firmino.

We had seen a similar video of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk a few weeks ago, and this one was just as brilliant between the Brazilians.

It started with Alisson answering about what Firmino would take along with him to an island, and the answer wasn’t really that surprising.

The forward answered his wife, which our keeper also guessed correctly. For Alisson’s options, the correct answer was barbecue, which Firmino got right too.

The pair were also asked what is their best body feature and which club they made their debuts for.

There were some great questions in between and Firmino confirmed that his favourite Brazilian player was Ronaldinho and not Ronaldo, while for Alisson it was goalkeeper Taffarel.

Our goalkeeper even predicted that Firmino would be a better keeper than his attacking partners Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The pair seem to be in great form and in spirits ahead of our crucial tie against Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool interested in signing £70m-rated Bundesliga powerhouse



Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz

Liverpool face tough competition for the signing of Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen, according to Sport Bild (h/t Mirror).

The 19-year-old has been on fire for the Bundesliga giants this season and has seven goals and five assists in all competitions.

The German also has a couple of international caps to his name and plays mostly as an attacking midfielder.

The report claims that Manchester City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are all “actively” tracking the rising star.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Havertz is rated at £70m (h/t Mirror), and he is the next big thing coming out from the Bundesliga. The 19-year-old was phenomenal last season with three goals and eight assists in the Bundesliga and seems set to break that his record in this campaign.

Liverpool have dipped into the German market several times under Jurgen Klopp, and if anyone would have the inside scoop on the 19-year-old, it has to be our manager due to his spell in the Bundesliga.

The Reds could do with an attacking midfielder in the team as we don’t have someone who can do this role. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be the ideal player for the position but it is unlikely we will see him play any minutes this season due to his injury.

“It is going to be difficult” – Liverpool star believes Manchester United will be tough opposition



Liverpool Manchester City Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool play Manchester United in the biggest fixture of the weekend, and the Reds have a sizeable lead over their rivals in the Premier League.

We are 16 points ahead of the Red Devils after just 16 games, and another win will keep us at the top of the table ahead of Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp has never defeated the Red Devils during his Premier League career, and Georginio Wijnaldum spoke about the tie.

Georginio Wijnaldum

The Dutch midfielder believed we would put up a quality performance, claiming United are a good team while having a bit of a dig claiming they go out not to lose games (h/t Mirror):

“It’s a nice game. We’ll try to put in the same performance that we did against Napoli.

“Things can happen, everyone can have a bad season, it does not mean they [United] are not a good team with good players. Last season, with the same players, they finished second.

“They have good players, a good manager, and they know how to manage games and win games – or not to lose games! It is going to be difficult.”

Jose Mourinho always seems to have a plan when playing against Liverpool, whether it was his Chelsea days or his United days.
