Or, as is the case here, their replacement is simply not good enough plus there's a great deal of hyperbole in the statement. Nothing actually guarantees a win going into a sporting contest beyond the opponent being preemptively disqualified. Sakho being ineligible certainly is a blow to their chances but we still have to show up and actually beat them. The last two matches were encouraging but this is still the same side that laid down vs Swansea, at Hull, and several other times this season.
Surely, that's what we've been crying out for for ages, and something which will be absolutely necessary for Europe. In European away games, we just block them out. Everyone knows that.
Then we get them at home.

considering our lack of width bit suprising that wilson isnt getting near thesquad
i read he s scored 28 goals this season and is captain of the 23s...
i dont know too much about him but 28 goals from wide areas is pretty good at any level
Benteke's record against us is pretty good (5 in 8) and after his unsuccessful time here, he'll be keen to prove us wrong. That said, Lukaku also has a good scoring record against us and he was anonymous for most of the recent derby.
The only likely candidates are the mancs, maybe, Arsenal, perhaps?
what do todays training photos tell you...
the first 10-14 pics are full of metal wall men..... something thats not seen this heavily in our usual training ground photos.... he s practising set pieces heavily.
and he has them all doing some form of yoga.... to prevent injuries ,,, smart move mr klopp..
he s looking for new ways to win in crisis times...
Hopefully Lovren and Matip both play, we are unbeaten the 14 times they paired up this season.
klopp is finally showing he is prepared to win ugly.... its a slight pity he didnt do in janury and february but at least now when its most critical he is willing to sacrifice some attacking flair in order to get results....
hopefully when we hit a bad patch in future he ll tell them to dig and use set pieces and win ugly in after 1-2 losses instead of such a long poor run.. 0ur ply lacked a little variety at times...and now we are needing to win not like we did earlier in the season by blitzing teams with spellbinding football but by doggedness and sheer will to win.
will to win above all....
and i commend this

The 3-1 defeat in 2014/15 really got to me because it was Stevie's last game. 1-1 at half time I think, they scored a second which should've been disallowed, they got lucky with the penalty rebound to make it 3-1, pretty sure we had a goal/penalty ruled out as well.
Any win will do. Don't care what scoreline.
I think balance is where we have struggled this season .
we all want to play the Klopp way , but the lads need to show the intelligence to cover space and re-organise quicker so we don't get countered
we have the quality to dominate palace and win that's for sure
Defensive crisis as Joel Matip, Lucas Leiva and Ragnar Klavan struggling with injury for Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp says three players are not training at the moment
Paper thin squad issues still threatening to ruin this season ... Plus it has to be said ... We don't half pick up injuries on a CONSTANT basis.
Is Matip going to be one of THOSE players ... The guy never seems to be able to stay fit.
We were all happy to see the squad get a nice rested week to prepare and all we get is news that they're dropping like flies.
Personally assuming the worst and all 3 of them are out. + the likes of Lallana etc. I would line up with the following:
Clyne Lovren Gomez Milner
Firmino Origi Coutinho
Subs: Karius, Whoever is fittest out of the 3, Moreno, Grujic, Wilson, Woodburn, Studge
Far far far from our best team, but hopefully we can still play with enough intensity to win despite the injuries.
This game is no foregone conclusion, if we're not at the races we will lose
We have just been getting over the line recently and Mignolet has saved us in certain situations, so we may need to do that again, but I don't care how we win the games even if we scrape past every team! we just need the wins
