If you come on Tuesday, you might be surprised at how empty the emirates isI'd imagine we'll go with close to the strongest line-up available to us on Tuesday but with injuries, covid and Afcon, that won't be amazingly strong.
I'd imagine it'll look something like this: Kelleher, Trent, Gomez, Konate, Robertson, Fabinho, Hendo, Jones, Ox, Jota & Williams. If Minamino's back fit he'll probably play, possibly instead of Trent with Williams going back to RB. The only other decisions would be whether VVD plays given that he'll almost certainly not play vs Shrewsbury on Sunday.
Jesus christ! Imagine playing the covid card for League Cup and FA Cup games! Have you not noticed how little Klopp gives a **** about the domestic cups in the past few seasons? Two seasons ago he sent the entire first team squad (including himself and first team coaches) on holiday instead of playing in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. He put out an under 15 side in the quarter final of the League Cup that same season and also put a kids team out in a FA Cup derby vs Everton.You get the impression a few clubs now have played the covid card to their own benefit, Tottenham got it spot on, helped them out no end with more rest time and more time for new manager to get his methods onboard, Liverpool now will obviously want to postpone to push as many games as possible back to when they have their best players back from Africa. Saw this coming a mile off.
