‘Group of death’ ‘Fancy us’ – Some Liverpool fans react to Champions League draw

Posted by

The Champions League draw can be gentle or cruel but there is no hiding from the fact that eventually you will have to face seriously tough competition.

In Liverpool’s case, they were handed a reunion with La Liga-winners Atletico Madrid, who knocked out the Reds in 2020; AC Milan, who have yet to meet the club in the group stages; and FC Porto, who Jurgen Klopp’s men trounced on aggregate on their way to winning the trophy.

It’s an exceedingly tough group, as several fans judged it to be on the Twittersphere, though there was a heartwarming degree of positivity attached.

The fact remains that we genuinely have one of the strongest starting-XI’s in Europe, though depth has rightly been pointed out as a concern should injuries arise.

Should we be faced by any injury concerns, we’d need the likes of Naby Keita, Harvey Elliott and co. to step up where required, as the former pair have already demonstrated when called upon thus far.

Realistically we’ve recruited well enough in the backline (provided we don’t lose Trent Alexander-Arnold to the sidelines), though the forward line likewise represents a source of anxiety given how unfavourable the options are beyond Jota and our prestigious starting trio.

We may be at the mercy of some luck, but judging by the last campaign – we’ve more than earned it.

Do Liverpool trust in Naby Keita? Or throw the kitchen sink at getting Saul Niguez?
