Paul Joyce of the Express has had the ‘Egg’ as his display photo on Twitter since he joined in 2011. The respected journalist, who has a proven track record of breaking Liverpool news, finally changed it this morning though, to a seemingly leaked Sevilla XI.
The lineup in his header includes: Soria; Mariano, Rami, Carrico, Escudero;Kolodziejczak, Nzonzi, Krychowiak; Coke, Banega, Gameiro
If he’s right, Konoplyanka, Iborra and Vitolo won’t start.
Of course, Liverpool’s starting XI is pretty much nailed on anyway. If Jurgen Klopp doesn’t select: Mignolet;Clyne, Moreno, Toure, Lovren; Can, Milner; Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino; Sturridge; there’ll be a big surprise among fans.
Sevilla’s best players are the holding midfielder Krychowiak and the excellent Gameiro up top. Banega pulls the strings, but it’s the French forward who can potentially hurt us.
In terms of weaknesses, the fullbacks are defensively suspect and should be targeted.
Bring it on!
