Liverpool go into Sunday’s game knowing this is undoubtedly the biggest game of the season.

Forget the win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge or the even the derby wins, all of those games are irrelevant unless we do the business on Sunday, and whilst it’s a cliche this is quite simply as important as a cup final.

As fans, as much as we love trophies, a Champions League place has become as prestigious as the cup competitions.

Liverpool travel to the recently relegated Middlesbrough in fine form. The Reds are unbeaten in the last three, taken seven points from a possible nine. Whilst the opposition have picked up one point from their last three games conceding seven goals in the process.

The prospect of Champions League football has every Red licking their lips.


Here is who we think could start for Liverpool on what was will be a crucial Sunday afternoon at Anfield.
