      Amazing that they are 8 points back and gave a better GD than us. That’s nuts.

      A draw from any of our games would feel like a loss to me, such is the pressure..

      And therefore none of the players would want to drop their intensity now...

      Means they maul their opponents when they win but do not get mauled when they lose.

      The hunger this team has, the same hunger that got us number 6, is going to be massively important. City's players don't have this hunger nor do they have our mentality.

      We have to go into all our games like we're 1-0 down.

      Have to have that mentality. The complacency we've shown last couple of games needs to be put to bed and Klopp will do that.

      Next game, a little matter of United away

      Get an early goal, shut the crowd up and we'll be fine.

      Nice as the 8 points are its a long time till May,Liverpool's biggest enemy between now and May isnt on a football field its the media and all that they can come up with to disrupt our quest for #19.
      Be warned player unrest Klopp being sourced for a new job ,iffy referee decisions, dodgy VAR calls, are only the beginning, Im not being paranoid am I ,or am I

      At this stage, 8 points is a nice insurance to have. No doubt - we'll have a sticky patch, they'll be a few matches down the line that won't go as we hope - that is to be expected even for a team as good as us. It's just that we have to be aware that such a happening is likely to occur and by doing so we just have to keep our heads.

      Amazing that they are 8 points back and gave a better GD than us. That’s nuts.

      It's where you score those goals. A 5-0 thrashing there and an 8 goal thrashing against a Watford team made of tripe means f**k all if you can't spread those goals around the other matches. Hence why they are 8 points behind.

      Something quite 'fair weather' about this Man City side at the moment.

      A concern is our trip to the middle east to play the WCC, I hope that doesn't disrupt our league campaign too much

      Yeah...two matches we need to play isn't it? I want to win that could we make an argument to play a second string side in that competition? Leave a few key players in England?

      Here's hoping Solskjaer is still in charge by then.

      Keep our lead to what it is at the moment and we can go put there to win the f**ker with no concerns.

      But as always we should follow the king as he always said in the 80s "lets just focus on the next game"

      Bring on the manc bas**rds by the score!

      This would also be a good time and place to remind you that, at present, Everton are in the relegation zone.

      No I think it's more fundamental than that..........deep down they might just be flat track bullys.........

      As the Jürgen said. Better to win 8 games 1-0 than to win 1 game 8-0.

      And just to add to the weekend euphoria, Stevie G goes top of the scottish prem as well.

      Will need a strong side for the final but expect a number of squad players for the semi.

      Is that a question or a statement or you just talking sh*te lad?

      It's f**king October, how about the team just carry on winning games, we carry on supporting the team and stop counting our f**king chickens.




      Make that a Banner bud and take it to all our games!!!! It's f**king October, so long to go!

      As a few have already alluded to let's just keep our focus. United were very ordinary last season and we couldn't win and it cost us . Let's worry about us and not the carnage around us

      Funny thing, if we can go to Old Trafford and pick up 3 points there, that will convince me more than anything that we can win it. Make no mistake, they ain't going to roll over.

      But then, neither will we.
