I got the stoke and Norwich line ups spot one, so I think one more activates the Changinator. There'll be dogshit through my letter box before half time.

Be very careful he may want to buy you lunch and try and talk to you on the phone. Scary bastard!

It would be a shame if something were to happen to that lovely family of yours. A man like you needs to understand that just a little respect is all that is needed.

Reina is out with Jones in, Suso is out and Shelvey in. Not happy that Shelvey gets in after his suspension as he wasn't that good before while Suso, at least at home, has more quality. Jonjo will provide more strength and directness but he is still very inconsistent so I wouldn't have dropped Suso for him now, maybe in a few games if Jonjo starts to play better or Suso's form starts to dip.

Wisdom is in too for an unchanged back 4 but we are playing with 4 CMs as Sahin aslo starts. So who plays up front with Sterling ans Suarez? It could be Gerrard or Shelvey or Sahin. I'd like to see Gerrard in the front 3, interchanging and even playing CF so we can see what he can do there. Will it be a 4-4-2, with a diamond midfield?

Forget all this, looks like my source got it all wrong, Suso is still in and Shelvey's on the bench. Right about Jones though. :)

Suso appears to be starting MarlboroMan, Shelvey is on the bench.

I think we'll see a 4-2-3-1 with Gerrard at the centre of the 3.

Surprised with no recognised striker on the bench. Can Suarez last the entire game? Hopefully but would have preferred Yesil to be in the squad. Other than that looks like a good line up and pretty strong bench overall. Just need to be clinical today.

The goalkeeper begins in place of Pepe Reina, who is ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool: Jones, Wisdom, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Sahin, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Suso, Suarez. Subs: Gulacsi, Shelvey, Henderson, Downing, Assaidi, Carragher, Enrique.

All joking aside if things are going well anybody else expect him to take Suarez off and play Shelvey up top as an experiment? Or just me?

This certainly looks like a 4-2-3-1, although it could meld into a 4-3-3 with either Suso or Gerrard moving to the flanks.

Jones getting another look in the PL. Hopefully he recognizes his chance, is well prepared and focused. I suspect a bit of competitive force is good for all the keepers, even if this is only happening due to injury.

I think it would be more likely that Gerrard would move into that role and either Shelvey or Downing would come on for Luis.

Shelvey, Suso or Gerrard to play as a false 9 if Suarez needs to come off or if game is comfortably in bag and good to rest him.

Generally speaking im quite looking forward to seeing what Rodgers is planning tactically here.

My source got it wrong, thankfully.

Not his best position any more IMO. I'd like to see Suso in the middle with Gerrard wide right or Sahin in the hole with Gerrard in the more defensive role along side Allen. That way he can make his late runs into the box with more unpredictability. His strength next to Allen is also important as Sahin isn't ready to handle that role just yet. I suspect that Gerrard and Sahin will interchange constantly to make it a more 4-1-4-1 or a 4-1-2-3.

Just bookmark/favourite the wiziwig site. No need to worry about asking anyone for links again. Pretty much has several streams listed for every game we play.

A little concerned by the bench.
Could have made more sense having Yesil on it.Or holding back Pacheco from the U-21 match and letting him be on he bench today.

Downing in the squads? Waste of space him, would rather he was put on toilet duty

Thin up front and wish we had a better reserve keeper than Brad Jones, but won't be an excuse for not beating this lot today

If we don't it would look really worrying. Hopefully we will but we need to score first I think
