Bench looks particularly strong
So, some musings on that team news then…great to see Diogo Jota back in the match-day squad, isn’t it?
His first appearance since early December and my how Liverpool have missed him.
The Portuguese had scored nine times before that knee injury at Midtjylland. He’s back tonight as an option from the bench that looks particularly strong.
Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock Origi all capable of making their mark off the bench. James Milner too.
No Nat Phillips though, sadly.
No confirmation if the defender is injured as I type but given the centre-back curse this season and the fact he’s not even in the squad, it wouldn’t be a shock, would it?
