There's no way you'd predict us to win! ha ha,
If we can keep Suarez quiet we have a good chance,
If Dembele isn't fit could Dempsey be an option in CM with Sandro? (if he's fit) he seems to have the work rate for it and I'd like to try that rather than Hudd. I'd also like to see Falque get a chance, he was good against Maribor.
SB=19- 2-2 suarez
Joe=8- 1-1 Bale

At this stage any line ups are purely speculative, but I see 2 possible concerns:
1 Huddlestone isn't good enough and a CM 3 of Gerard, Sahin, Allen will run him ragged, so I'd drop him.
2 IMO Vertonghen is our best defender/tackler, yet his footballing brain and ability would allow him to play in midfield, also he's not the quickest.
So I'd drop Huddlestone and start Vertonghen in CM next to Sandro , which would allow Sandro slightly more freedom and would put Liverpool CM trio under more pressure. Naughton is lightening fast, so I'd start him at LB to try and nullify Sterling.
If Dembele is fit enough to start then he and Sandro would always be my first choice CM pairing, but could he play in Dempseys role behind Defoe?
Options are varied, as are your opinions I'm sure! lets have em'?!
