For us, this team picks itself.
For the first time since November 6 (when we battered Watford at Anfield), Jurgen Klopp can select his four most influential creators at the same time. That’s Roberto Firmino, Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana.
Due to injuries to Coutinho and Lallana during this period; and Mane’s involvement at the AFCON with Senegal – Klopp’s had to shuffle his pack – to mixed results.
We just about coped before Christmas without Coutinho, but have been desperate without Mane.
Thankfully though, our manager can pick his first-choice XI against Hull on Saturday for the first time in nearly three months.
Simon Mignolet will keep his spot in goal following his penalty heroics versus Chelsea, while Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner are automatic starters at fullback.
Joel Matip will partner Dejan Lovren at centre-back, while Jordan Henderson, so brilliant on Tuesday, will anchor the midfield.
We’d go with Gini Wijnaldum to the right of the skipper, with the Dutchman scoring against the Blues and putting in a better performance than Emre Can. Adam Lallana simply must start to the left of the midfield trio: the position he made his own during the first half of the campaign.
Up top, it’s simple. Firmino in the middle, with Coutinho and Mane flanking the Brazilian.
This team can beat anyone in the country.
