      The defense needs to be at their very best.

      I went for a draw 1-1. Obviously, now I would take it but a win is always a win.

      Yep, we do. I just noticed Sane is not starting too, but I can see Guardiola throwing him in when we get tired, but we have Ox to do the same too.

      Would have been nice to have Coutinho, but happy with our industrial midfield vs the big teams tbh.

                       WIN WE GO TOP  !!

      Like the X1 and especially like Klavan in for Lovren, Ox on the bench is slightly surprising i thought maybe he would have had 2/3 training sessions to get up to speed, but pleased he has made the bench, properly confident can only see a Reds win.

      1-3, Mane, Bobby, Salah in any order.

      I use the prediction league as tool that if we do not get the desired result, I can turn there and say better than nothing :D I won it two years ago that way and last season I tried to be fancy, did not work so I reversed to good old days. 1-1 for me.

      I predicted it's 2-2. Not too comfortable of our defence but if our boys keep their attackers quiet then this season is something to be fun :D

      Interesting that Klavan gets the nod ahead of Lovren. Always liked Ragnar but think he struggles to maintain good form, basically good in short doses but tails off.

      Their attack looks frightening, as does ours and again the battle could be won in midfield, if our 3 turn up like they did against Arsenal we'll win this comfortably but performances like earlier in the season then that could flip completely.

      Expecting a big game from Mane, I don't think he's been right at his top in the last couple of games even though he's been among the goals and today is set up for him and Salah to shine. City wont sit back and we'll exploit all the space they give us.

      5-0 to the Reds! Why not? :D

      Come on!

      What the hell is going on with Robertson?! Was boss for Scotland, looked good in the brief time he's played for us but again misses out!

      Think he's nailed on to start again against Burnley. This is how it's going to be most of the time this season. I also prefer Moreno in games like these where we'll need to defend bigger spaces. Moreno is better at that and more familiar with the system. Robertson will be better against the sides that sit deep where his crosses will be of more use.

      Regarding him not making the bench: Milner is the better option because he's able to play more positions, quite a few people have mentioned that. He's cover for both fullbacks and midfield.

      Was surprised at first to see Klavan in the starting line-up, but looking back to his game against City last season, he did really well.

      This is going to be a really interesting game. Danilo in that back three is someone we'll be targetting I think, going to be lots of space to exploit behind that City defense.
