Putting the mid-week game behind us what does everyone think for the weekend game?

By my count I think there will be 18 different players on the pitch between both sides.

Do you think it will be a similier game (tbh i thought both sides were sloppy with possession) with a moment of brilliance winning it?

Personally I see us being more comfortable in this game, mainly down to both CB and LBs. We hopefully will have a fit VVD to come back and hopefully Rudigar will not be back for Chelsea.

Also we have a better LB coming in and where as Chelsea have the same with Alonso he is, for me, equally in adequate at defending as Emerson proved to be.

Chelsea is a very good side, They can get compact and there midfield is second to none. our front three are not having a free run at their defense. if we attack through middle and exploit their two center backs we could win this game. but we don't really have a target man of sorts neither is that our game.
Also we have to keep a look out for hazard and willian who are both capable of individual brilliance. I think this will be a boring draw with both managers cancelling each other out tactically. its at the bridge i won't get hopes high. i see a draw.

Yes. We'll have to keep a look out for Hazard and Willian. They should keep a look out for Mane, Firmino and Salah.

If van dijk doesn't play i think chelsea's main threat will be giroud against matip or lovern. Our full backs seem to be set up to let wingers have a bit of space initially. They aren't closed down straight away in certain areas. If van dijk doesn't start chelsea would do well to get it out wide asap and get some crosses in.

Our biggest threat will be salah in this game as i think chelsea are primed to be hit with fast counter attacks. Mane will drop a bit deeper as he has been doing of late. If salah stays on the shoulder i would expect him to get a fair few chances.

Could well be a game of who deals better with their chances when they win the ball back high up the pitch. Chelsea press hard and if that initial line of pressing can be got through when we are coming out from the back there will be spaces everywhere.

I think bobby mane and salah's movement up top might be a bit too much for chelsea.

Van dijk is a massive loss for this game if he is not fit. Fingers crossed.

We'll win tomorrow mate, no doubt about it. Bring them on, Chelsea have to be respected but can they match a full strength Liverpool? No. Im not going to sit here and say we can beat them 4-0, I think it'll be a very close game but we'll do it I have no doubts.

I'm with you salah, Chelsea are on for a hiding. Vvd will be back, robbo dealt with mbappe he will handle hazard, with the big man behind him.

Milly, hendo and gini

And then boom

Salah, firmino, mane. Woops.

We need to beat them, that will completely wipe our the league Cup loss.

We are top of the league, say we are top of the league.

Let's sort our goal difference out.

Classic 4 0 or 5 1.

You'll wake up with your head in the porridge lad.
We will do very very well to beat Chelsea.
They're just as capable of doing damage to us.

Chelsea are at home which is always a positive. Plus hazard is expected to start as well Giroud. They are quality and if you give Jorginho time and space he will simply make you pay!

Jorginho will dictate the game from the deep!

Harry, does Kovacic know that you are now flirting with Jorginho? He'll be upset, you know.

Our first choice midfield have won every midfield battle so far this season, no team have dictated the game against us. Gini and Milner have been immense, Jorginho won’t get the time and space that he’s been used to!

Look, you played Liverpool 2nd team the other night. I know you fielded a weaker team too.

Our 1st team is a hell of a lot better. Who said "wake up with porridge in your head. We are the team that beat city 3 0, roma 4 1, Porto 5 0. Arsenal 4 0. We can thrash top class teams on our day. We will win, I know that and I think you will get blown away by the champions elect, with a point to prove. Its what the team needed, a kick up the arse.

{Ed002's Note - All of these comments are from Liverpool supporters. You don't need to start dragging up the feeble excuses for Wednesday again.}

Welshred our 2nd choice midfield bossed Chelsea on Wednesday after the first 20 minutes. Jorginho is a good player but he won’t have been hit from all sides before like he will be tomorrow. He’ll kack his pants!

I think some of us are overconfident in our chances.

We haven't played well enough this year to be smashing everyone in the world 4-0, we haven't nearly hit our best yet. I think I'd take a point away at one of the top 3 teams in prem. hoping to then beat them at home later in the season!

It will be a tight game tomorrow for sure, and totally different to weds night but even with that in mind I still think we will win 2-0.
I'd take a defeat on weds night if by the time we have played city we are atleast 5 points clear at the top of the prem, yes we want to do well in all comps but it is very unlikely we would win all four in the same season and the premier league from a supporters point of view has to be our priority. 28 years of pain will be no more come may2019 and lfc are crowned champions of the premier league for the first time in the history with many more to follow.

We will win 3-1 simple.

Salah, mane and Gomez.

I think our fanbase we're incredibly arrogant going into the cup game. No matter the changes, Chelsea have quality players.

Make no mistake about it, Chelsea have a damn good team and a damn good squad and are more than capable of beating us tmrw. That said, our boys (second string if you like) should have pummeled their second team the other night with the chances we created. I mean, Studge could have had a hat trick and no one would have blinked had his finishing not deserted him in the game. I mean, even Gianfranco Zola (one of the best players I have ever seen in my life) said so in his post game comments about how LFC should have won the game WAY before they scored their two goals. The thing is that tmrw, there are match-ups that work for and against us. If VVD does not play, how doe we deal with Giroud? How do we deal with Hazard? And for Chelsea, how will Jorginho deal with Bobbie sitting on top of him when their CB's are in possession? How will their defence deal with our front 3 esp. with Rudiger not sure to play? How does Chelsea deal with our pressing game in midfield? These things are the reasons why this is a tricky game to call. As an LFC fan, I back our boys to win every game we play so we go for the win.
