      Imagine being 8 points clear at the top of the league and winning the Super Cup when the best keeper in the world has been out injured for that run.

      Great if the title "We are top of the league" was still the case after 38 games. We will all be celebrating !

      To add to their dread last season's Prem winners were on the same points tally at this point in the season and proved uncatchable.

      You only get a chance to compete in the Club World Cup if you win the Champions League, I don't care what anyone says it is prestigious and its basically one full game plus one half and half with squad players. The game we would have been playing domestically has been moved so what exactly is the issue, the lads will be flying there and back in a private jet so not exactly arduous is it?

      It is the pile up fixture after that and they are Premier league games its squad management and prioritising!   We still have a way to go for this.  Lets see where we are.   The area of immediate concern are the full backs and forwards.   

      Listen man you don't win prestigious trophies playing 1 and half game.  In my eyes it got tainted when utd won it without winning the Champions League.   Listen am with you I want to win the trophy too.  But  want the league a millions times more.

      Oh yes obviously given the choice I'd rather we win the league but I think we should be able to hoover up this club world cup pretty easily and perhaps a break from the pressure of December might do the lads some good, plus a few days of warm weather training ;-)

      The world club comp, is going to be a welcome distraction, and a mini holiday\training camp for the squad.

      Make no mistake the players and managers and all of us want to in it, but no risks will be taken, klopp will fully utilize his squad.

      Really need guys like Lovren, lallana, brewster, Origi and the ox, to stay fit & Naby, shaqiri, to get fit and firing for the december fixture pileup.

      There is 2 months to go which is a very long time in the grand scheme of things.   But agree in the 1st game especially we will utilize the squad.

      If we can stay injury free then f**k me we have a chance!

      I hate the international break, hopefully everyone comes back safely and injury free.

      12 Days before we play utd to extend our winning run to 18. They will be trying extra hard to stop us achieving that at all levels in their club.
      So what is the chance they off load Ole this week, to get a new manager in and try and create that ‘new manager bounce’ from the players.
      I think that is the only chance they have of competing with us with any threat of a draw, let alone a win !
      Could it happen in 12 Days, or will they stick with him for now, and hope for the best ?

      One good point is that the England game will give Joe Gomez more match time which he seems to need at the moment.

      Lets be generous, from this point until the end of the season I'm happy for Citeh to win 2 more and draw 1 more than us ;-)

      I feel we are gonna win every Prem game !
      It’s jus weird how he just seem to find a way. If not by a creation of our own, a cock up by the opposition.
      I think the footballing gods are smiling down on us at the mo.

      Think we’d need to play pretty poorly against Spurs for a draw given their current form. Win, win, draw for me.

      If we can win against them at Anfield that will be huge. If they do us home and away them the gap is so small. If we can split points with them 3 each or 2 each then that makes their task very difficult IMO.

      Last season though we were fortunate to come away with a home point.

      I think we are more than capable of winning all 3 games, Utd, Spurs and Citeh but I wouldn't put money on it. Especially Citeh are dangerous, if they go into supercharge mode, which they normally do against us, then it will be very hard to beat them, then again if we go into supercharge mode watch out Pep!
