Breaking villa are going to field the u23’s on Friday! If true how do u lot think we should go about it?

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Jan 2021 23:18:00
Full team and smash em!

07 Jan 2021 23:20:35
Field a substantially rotated squad as we probably intended to do anyway.

08 Jan 2021 07:06:03
Field as strong a team as possible score as many as we can a d see how they feel remember we had to field a weakened team 24hrs b4 world club championship game show is now on the other foot.

08 Jan 2021 07:33:00
Full team, we have 9 days before our next match so an opportunity to get a confidence boosting win (hopefully) followed by a long break to recover.

08 Jan 2021 08:14:59
Klopp will select a mixture of first team and fringe players who need game time. Expect the likes of Taki, Ox, Williams, Shaq, Milner, Jones and maybe even Origi.

08 Jan 2021 08:17:56
Full team and let’s get the front 3 in the goals again.

08 Jan 2021 08:55:46
Agreed Long thing, we have 9 days before we play united, plenty time to give players a rest. We need the first time during in all cylinders and this would be a good chance to do that!

08 Jan 2021 09:37:59
Full team don't care who villa put out. Confidence needs to be instilled again.

08 Jan 2021 10:04:55
Its a hard one because we don't want to risk any more injuries. But id like to see him stick with hendo and fab at the back to give them more practice. Neco and milner fullbacks give trent and robbo a break. Give thiago and ox another start to get them up to fitness maybe Jones or another one of the youngsters. Then origi taki and Shaq to give the front 3 a rest. Keep them on the bench just incase.

08 Jan 2021 10:17:53
Its a tough one. Its a reasonably long time until our next game, so in theory we could just play our normal team and still have time to recover easily. Yet there are players in need of game time and this would be the perfect opportunity. Kelleher, Neco, Milner, Phillips, Williams, Shaq, Origi, Thiago, Minamino and Ox could all do with minutes. I would guess they will all be involved in some way.

08 Jan 2021 11:19:04
Go as strong as possible and be ruthless in our approach.

08 Jan 2021 11:46:25
I wonder what all the people asking for the strongest XI would say if Fabinho or Mane pull up with a hamstring problem from playing against a bunch of kids in near freezing weather?

Klopp should field the exact side he was planning to field before this announcement, which based on track record will likely be a mixture of kids and squad players. Kelleher, both Williamses, Phillips, Ox, Shaq, Taku etc.

Salah et al will probably be on the bench so the option is there if we aren't winning after 60 minutes.

08 Jan 2021 12:21:10
I love a good cup run, day out at Wembley ( maybe not this year ) but I completely agree with Something Red.

The league has to be the priority ( and CL ) so it’s a mixed squad for me.

08 Jan 2021 13:02:54
I would play


Williams R. Williams Phillips Milly

Ox Thiago Jones

Minimano Origi Shaqiri

Or something similar. Keep Fabhino away from the game as he is now the most important player we have defensively and can't risk him when the two young can play and do a good job if it is indeed Villas under 23s.

08 Jan 2021 13:10:10
That looks about right to me Kimuraking.

08 Jan 2021 13:22:36
SR not that I disagree with your premise but really, one can get a back injury rolling out of bed or a regular injury in training or with nobody around you so in the end, they are part of the game.

08 Jan 2021 13:31:47
Let's be honest, if we put the team out that Ki. uraking has suggested and we can't beat an U23 Villa team then there should be no excuses. Its easily good enough imo.

08 Jan 2021 13:32:29
Kheller, N Williams, R Williams, Phillips, Milner, Thiago, Ox, Jones, Taki, Origi, Salah. Job Done . Chorley FC at home in the 4th Round please!
