Liverpool squad: Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Gomez, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Mignolet, Brewster, Robertson, Origi, Matip, Kent, Lewis, Hoever, Duncan, Wilson, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott, Van den Berg, Lonergan.

This is definitely our biggest game of the season so far; it’s a must-win game with the potential to be a real banana skin. Still, if we can’t beat this lot then we don’t deserve to win the Pre-Season Trophy (aka the Everton Cup).

A five man midfield might be a 4321 formation, hopefully no injuries and a comfortable win.

I expect a much better performance today than we saw in America. I want to see the side defending set pieces and crosses into the box much better than they have been, as that one aspect of our game in the US was abysmal.

The front 3 will be interesting too, it'd be nice to see Gini and Chamberlain show they can offer some quality cover up there.

Beautiful cross from Robbo into big Div right in front of goal. Shouldve been 1-0.

Dominated possession so far and the counter press looks really good.

Notable how flexible we are so far. Origi has dropped in several times, Milner has been CM/LW, Wijnaldum cutting in from the left. Henderson and Fabinho have both found themselves to be the furthest man forward. Pre-season positioning...

Ouch. Matip needs to do better there. Close him down, way too soft for Insigne to pick his spot. 0-1.

Origi has to hold it up better at times, gave it away cheaply with poor control resulting in them breaking on goal. Matip should do better in that situation too.
