Super Jack is one of those players that needs to maintain fitness and rhythm by playing. We saw him come on for Foden at the weekend on the hour and didn’t quite settle after wowing in the UCL last week. If Pep wants to start him at the weekend, it will be important for him to start midweek.
Could he get that Champions League goal he was desperate for last week?
The young Argentine continues to impress and added to his goal tally in the Champions League against Copenhagen at the Etihad. Fans are keen on seeing him get another start, and this could be the perfect game for him to do that. This also ensures Foden stays wrapped up safely for his annual superior performances at Anfield.
Allowing Haaland to start increases the likelihood of early goals and control of the game, meaning he will be able to bring some youngsters on and protect those that will be starting at the weekend. As people continue to highlight, the Norwegian will have a long break during the Winter World Cup.
What do you say blues? Is this a Champions League line-up? Or will Pep keep us on our toes?
