SO who do we all want playing against saints? mixture of the youth who underwhelmed against Plymouth or all out for the win?
Can anyone shed any light as to why Harry Wilson played no part in the FA Cup, from what I've read on here his form has been very good!
Personally like to see Karius and TAA hold there places and with studge starting if he's fit

I would like this 11 . Karius TAA Matip Gomez Moreno can gini Lallana firmino number 10 Origi Sturridge sts . But I can see Klopp doing this .
Karius clyne lovren klavan Milner can gini Lallana firmino left win Origi st Sturridge rww

I like your first choice too but don't see Klopp changing our formation, don't see Matip starting either tbh although would be nice.
I'd say Karius TAA Gomez Klavan Moreno Stewart Can Gini Lallana Studge origi.
Wouldn't complain to seeing Ojo or Wilson involved in the front 3 and Lallana drop deeper

TBH believe near enough the XI Klopp hopes to start against united play, the only exception would be put coutinho on bench against saints with the hope to start against united. Have had a week off so can manage two game and saints should get them match sharp.
Only difference is would pack the bench against saints wth youth and give the youth another shot against Plymouth

I'd go close to first team and use the game to get Matip/ Coutinho/ Hendo a run to ease them back in (either starting or as sub depending on fitness)
The rest have had time to recover and can afford to play with Utd only on Sunday
Clyne - Matip - Lovren - Milner
Gini - Stewart - Llalana
Firmino - Origi - Coutinho
Bring on Hendo for last 30mins and take off Coutinho early for Woodburn to protect him for Man Utd

Strongest possible 11. Massive game

I'd still have a mixture to be honest - we used youth heavily to get to that stage of the cup and I don't think, on the back of one underwhelming performance, they should all be thrown on the scrapheap. Maybe have a few more experienced players next to them - and perhaps introduce a few more youth players from the bench, as opposed to starting them - but I'd like to see some youth in the team. I suspect that Klopp will probably field a strong team after the Plymouth result.

Im ready to be shot down but i wouldn't be too unhappy if we put out the same team of youngsters again (at least for the first half) . They will have learned from that game and it offers them the opportunity to show improvement, better workrate, less nerves, etc. I think, given a second bite at the cherry, the kids could overcome Plymouth.

Agree with Roland, Abo and zimbo.
The "first" team have had 10 days off, this is a good game to knock off a bit of rustiness before the weekend.
Secondly, if we win or lose 3-0 then the second leg is affected, so we have to go all out for a win. Play like we did on Sunday against Saints first team and the second leg could be over.
Thirdly, it'd be nice to get Klopp's first trophy under his belt.

I probably should have read the original post. Better. I was referring to the replays vs Plymouth not the Southampton game.

I thought it was unfair on all them young lads been thrown in together against a team who's players were treating it a the biggest game of their career.
But I guessed they learnt a lot about being in a team that is expected to win every game.
