For the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern, a win is all that matters against Maribor this evening. It has been a difficult spell for the Reds, and whilst their Premier League campaign isn’t going too well, a win in the Champions League this evening could put them in a very good position as they look to secure progression.
Their preparation for the game, though, has been far from ideal. A reported double injury blow has interrupted the optimism of the fans in the Transfer Tavern, with Coutinho and Lovren said to be set to miss the game. It’s a big blow, particularly in the case of Coutinho, as the Brazilian has been sensational this term.
That said, the Reds should still be able to win the game, particularly given the dominant 7-0 scoreline last time out, and so the mood is still positive in the pub. It’s a similar tale over on Reddit, with fans not sulking about the losses, but rather looking to discuss who they think might come in instead.
There are a lot of options from which Klopp can choose, and with fans not too concerned by the absence of two key players, things aren’t looking too bad for the club.
