So frustrating that we continue to pick up important injuries. Seems that each time we get one player back another goes out. Hopefully Rüdiger and Emerson are back by next weekend because they make a huge difference.

I think we pretty much have to play with the back 3 again until Emerson is back because it's the only formation Alonso can play effectively in. 

Guessing we'll see a much different side here than we did against Wolves. Think Giroud, Pulisic, Barkley, and Pedro all come in. Kante will probably be on the bench and hopefully held out for the weekend.

Perhaps, but dont think we are solid enough to start switching formations. It demands a lot of time and prep.

Rest the front 3 for liverpool.

With Kante, Rudiger, Emerson, James still out I agree it's best to start with three at the back. But Azpilicueta is not very good WB. And Zouma is horrible. I would start Azpi at CB along with Chris and Tomori. On RWB we should try Pulisic, Willian or Pedro.

Am I confident against Valencia? Nope. 

Our play is so inconsistent right now in games let alone between games. We can look at one point absolutely have no clue on how to progreas the ball to suddenly score bunch of goals and at the same time concede goal after goal. It feel like every game is a roulette.

Want to see how much of rotation will be there in the team, if any. 

I would rotate in a couple of forward positions so that key players are fresh for Liverpool. We have decent options like Pulisic and Barkley to call upon in midfield. Don't think there is room for rotation in defense.

it's a team full of youths, so it's normal that every game is a roulette and it was clear from the beginning of the season

This season is getting the hang of it season, getting to know the system, the players, the chemistry and our weaknesses. Next season with quality additions we will race.

Tomori-Christensen-Azpi backline would be ideal given the circumstances. But who would play RWB then? Pedro?

Nevertheless, 3-5-2 or 3-6-1 might the way to go. Valencia plays 4-4-2 so a back 3 would take care of their two attackers and we could still have 3vs2 or 4vs2 advantage in central midfield
