    Default Liverpool v Spartak Moscow: Moscow on the Mersey

    Last game of the Champions League group stages, with a win guaranteeing 'top-of-the-group' and a loss guaranteeing grinding out Thursday nights with Arsenal in the Europa League. Not sure whether top of the group or bottom is all that much better this go around, with likely second-placers including Bayern, Juve & Real Madrid.

    I was knocked out with a nasty bug for a few days and I'm guessing the same one is making the rounds through the team, given our jammy defense selection on the weekend. Hoping a few can make it back. We should have too much for them at home, but with the derby looming, rotation probably on the cards again.

    Karius

    TAA Gomez Lovren Moreno

    Winjaldum Henderson

    Mane Firmino Coutinho

    Spartak didn't offer much, but it was one of those nights for Liverpool. The front 4 imperious.

    Boom. We've got some revenge to exact on Real and Basel but yeah, of the two I'd probably take Basel...

    So Liverpool go on to win the Champion's League, beat out Man City to win the Premier League, and cure cancer all in one season.

    Roy Keane is then quoted as saying, "Big deal. Jesus still hasn't returned to this planet and they haven't discovered life on other ones. Really overblown."
