Goalkeeper

This hasn’t been the best stretch for Allison in goal. He has allowed seven goals in his past three matches, but did make a clutch save in extra time to preserve the win on Saturday. It’s hard to find fault with him on any of them, but it is something that Liverpool will want to correct as they move into the stretch run of the season.

Defense

Especially with a “longer” lay-off of Tuesday-Sunday after this game, Liverpool shouldn’t be worried about the legs of their defenders. Joel Matip could return to the line-up in place of Ibrahima Konate, but Konate is in great form. The other three are etched in the line-up and are unlikely to be replaced unless they need a blow.

Midfield

Fabinho starts at the No. 6 for Liverpool on Tuesday. The question is who starts alongside him. Liverpool have at least 10, and hopefully 11 games left this season, so rotation is going to be key. Jordan Henderson rested Saturday, and is fresh for Tuesday. Naby Keita is in good form, and Liverpool are likely more worried about Thiago making a tight turnaround than him.

Attack

Sadio Mane had a brace against City, and has been great in recent weeks. Diogo Jota didn’t play Saturday, so he should be ready come Tuesday. Mo Salah is in terrible form, and seems to be pressing a little bit, but brings things no other Liverpool player can do.

Predicted Liverpool Line-up (4-3-3): Alisson, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah.

  2. Try doing all the small tasks, such as getting groceries, as soon as you can. This will narrow down your list and will ensure that you do all the minor tasks first. Don’t be lazy and procrastinate on those small things!
