      I seen something on Twitter about the rest of the Premier League should stop Liverpool from winning the league by loaning their stars (i.e Kane, Auba, Pogba, Hazard) to Citeh. Gotta love it, feels good to be getting under everyone's skin  ;D

      Bloody hell do other fans really not think we might deserve the league after 29 years, is their hatred really so deep?

       Regardless of tonight's result this thread will still be true, and we have opportunities in the next few games to rebuild and bigger gap.

      Obviously hoping for a win tonight but I don't see a loss derailing all the hard work so far this season

      In all honesty, I couldn't care less what opposition fans have to say. Let them plastic, glory grabbing, money buying, FA manipulating cu*ts talk. They know where we are headed and they are scared and jelous. And that combo can turn anyone as bitter as an Evertonian.

      I for one, won't give the right to anyone say we don't deserve this. And at this point, I'm not talking about winning titles, I'm talking about how great this team has developed, how our players and the Gaffer are enjoying our football, how we tear teams apart and how good we defend. Everything else will follow this. I won't give the right to anyone to show any disrespect to what we are doing, because WE KNOW how we got to this. We know how close we've been to success before and not getting it, we also know how close we've been to losing our club and making it through, we the LFC fans, know.

      So in the coming months, if 'opposition fans' wanna talk to me with anything but respect about what we are doing, they can talk to my ass and suck it.

      Onwards and upwards, let's continue our great season with another win tonight. Let's stuff City lads! COYMR!

      We're sitting comfortably top of the League, clear of any f**king challenger and people still wanna f**king cry like tarts.

      Well as I said to Ian the other day, we're allowed to get carried away and we're allowed to f**king dream because we're fans.

      And I'm the type of fan who gets very excited by my club. I'm the type of fan who always bigs us up regardless of where we are in the League but when we're f**king flying high like we are now, it's even easier to big us up. So yeah I'm gonna say we'll win the League (I have done every other year - f**k it's on this forum that I say it quite a lot).

      And if I wanna get excited and plan the homecoming then I'm gonna do it because I'm gonna enjoy this ride for as long as I can.

      That's why IMHO, there is no pressure on our shoulders tonight. Only to take the points, like in every game. We just have to play like we have all season, and take our chances.

      It's never been a more exciting time to be a Red. (In my lifetime.)

      If you'd asked me the day before we played Everton on 2nd December if I'd take us being 4 points clear at the top of the table with our goal difference around the same as City's when I woke up in the morning of the 4th January I'd have snapped your hand off. That's the worst case scenario tonight.

      No matter what, when I wake up in the morning :

      Brighton away
      Palace home
      Leicester home
      West Ham away
      Bournemouth home

      Chance to get back on another winning run before we go to toilet.

      City got three easy games before back to back home games with Arsenal and Chelsea.

      Reality is we should win our next 5. We have a margin for error Citeh and Tottenham don’t. We are still in a great position
      My only worry is Citeh going on one of those mega runs they are capable of and winning 10 out of the next 11 or something

      Need to go one game at a time and build some momentum and show that last night won’t develop into a wobble. The whole world and his dog will be waiting for us to drop points now and the pressure will be immense, but fortunately we have some very calm and grounded characters in that dressing room.

      Jürgen will see us right!

      Add to that, this was probably the last tough away game this season. Toughest by a margin. Still think we can do it. One game at a time.

      The positive point about being humbled by Man City is that it will keep us on our toes. The bigger the gap gets to 2nd place, the more chance for players to get complacent I feel. It also shows that despite our huge improvements since last year, there’s a few other areas we need to improve.

      We’ll bounce back in our next few games and this game will become irrelevant. 4 point gap, let’s keep going.

      humbled by Citeh?? In what way, they only just beat us in a very tight game and if we'd been a bit more positive in our team selection we may well have won, but this doesn't even register as a set back. We were beaten by a very good team who were super motivated at their own ground, we have all the tools to go on another good run now, I'm just hoping that Arsenal and/or Chelsea can take some points off Citeh.
      For us we have 4 tricky games left, Manure away, which we seem to always struggle in, but hopefully the Solskjaer effect will have worn off by then. Bitters away, on paper we should win easily but Derby games are always tricky and then we have Spurs and Chelsea at home which are also potential banana skins. If we can navigate those and keep our focus against the lower teams, as we have doen so far, then we win the league.
      We have 4 points which we can drop in relation to Citeh and out of those 4 tricky games I'd be expecting us to not lose any more than that but I still think we need Citeh to lose some points as well, which I think they will.

      My workings are that we might well have to go unbeaten again till the end of the season to nick this one.

      No reason we cant but an exut Monday night might be a help...unless we go with kids for the cup and give them a go

      Maybe 'humbled' was the wrong choice of word; I was referring to the end of our unbeaten run. Potentially a few of the players were starting to feel we could be invincible all season (*cough* Lovren) and our performance does suggest we do need to improve areas of our game. 

      I do agree though, this is just a hiccup for us. I don't even think we're at our best considering we are top of the league and there's more still to come. We'll bounce back stronger than ever.

      The Chelsea game at home is the 3rd to last game - we may have the title wrapped up by then, you never know. The Spurs game at home is the 5th to last game - City had it in the bag by then last year.

      I think if we win all our next 2 games we could be clear by 7 points before City kick a PL ball..City have Cup games to deal with inbeteeen league games..

      The reality is that we were always going to lose at some point. Arsenal and a few other teams aside, you just don't go through a season unbeaten.

      That means the critics were always going to be right, in that not if, but when we lost, they could point the finger and shout 'BOTTLED IT'! It was inevitable that was going to happen.

      Klopp will know more about his players after a loss not when winning game after game. We lost against City because we were sloppy in possession and because Klopp got it wrong; don't think he should play Henderson and Milner in midfield again. Lovren, well, we know what he can do and that he gets rattled. But what was Klopp going to do with Gomez and Matip out?

      I think the next league game is the most important so far. Brighton away is now massive. Wasn't it Houllier who said great teams don't lose two in a row?

      I also think that losing our unbeaten run is a monkey off our backs.

      I still think this is a two horse race as Spurs will drop more points along the way with away trips to ourselves, Chelsea and City along with home games to both Arsenal and United.

      We need to in my opinion to stretch our lead over City to 6 or 7 points over January/February. They have Carabao cup games and tricky fixtures away to Newcastle and at home to both Arsenal and Chelsea.
