      He might be a dick but I wonder if this is a little bit true?

      https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1065246/Liverpool-team-selection-Andy-Gray-Jürgen-Klopp-Xherdan-Shaqiri

      Be interesting to see if he starts against city.

      He is a dick - think that’s the end of it  :)

      I don’t think Shaqiri will start - he will want a more solid midfield three

      So I think the line up will be

      Alisson

      TAA
      Lovren
      VVD
      Robbo

      Hendo
      Gini
      Keita

      Mane
      Bobby

      Worst case scenario we are 4 points clear Friday morning

      I think our players are now in top form -we know we can win there

      Let’s hope a rusty kompany plays

      We have been just plain bad so far on the road, but we also play the best football of our season right now. Tough call. I'd be happy with a draw. No Fabinho and no Keita, they are not reliable enough yet.

      Alisson
      TAA-Lovren-VVD-Robbo
      Milner-Gini-Hendo
      Salah-Bobby-Mané

      City will be shitting themselves, if they get beat then bar a collapse by Pool, then the season could be over.

      it could see them shift their focus to the CL resting players before the CL games. In a way its no lose game for us as even the worse case scenario sees us with a four point lead and only Chelsea and Spurs to come at home from top 4

      Not getting away from this, fact is win Thursday we WIN THE LEAGUE,  its as simple as that,
      We're not going to slip up, We're not going to implode, even were we to lose i still believe the title is ours,
      City can't handle the pressure,  from day dot virtually we were the hunters, all the pressure was on us, we had to win every game to hang onto "the best side the prem has ever seen"
      And we did, but look what's happened the hunter became the hunted, and now City HAVE to win every game just to hang on to,  'Thee Best Side in the Prem' This season,  and they have royally fu**ed it up, they know it , we know it, so anything other than a win for them and its good night Vienna,

      For us, its just a normal day at the office,  we just go out there and do what we do best, Win, even a draw suits us just f***in fine, all the pressure is on them, pressure they can't cope with,

                           Alisson
         Trent Lovren Virgil Robertson
                           Fabinho
                 Milner            Wijnaldom
               Firmino    Salah     Mane

      As good as Hendo's been of late i think those mid 3 are a better balance,  obviously if Milner is out Hendo comes in,

      Tactically I'd go for the throat from the get go,  get that early goal and watch their chins hit their chests, mentally they'll know not only are going to lose this game, they'll be surrendering their title, Jürgen won't be sitting back, he'll want to control the game, a early goal makes that easier for us and their task too difficult.

      Can we get Sergio Ramos in as consultant on how to judo throw your opponent without getting booked?

      Seriously though, and I know we aren't that kind of team, but someone needs to f**k up Salah and kick Firmino off the park, so not only do we win the game but we take out their 2 best players for a few weeks and see how they fare then.

      Need to be disciplined and soak up the pressure early on, as i think City will come out on fire. Survive the first 15-20 minutes scoreless and i think we'll be able to start controlling the game a bit more and as the clock ticks they'll start to get restless and potentially leave gaps for us to expose. City came to Anfield with a patient approach and completely stifled us and only a missed penalty prevented them from leaving with all 3 points, but this time around i think they need more urgency in their game and instead of playing to stop us they need to play to beat us.

      Klopp seems to do 4-2-3-1 to get the extra attacking player against defensive sides so i think he goes to 4-3-3 on Thursday. We all know who starts in goalie, defense and front 3, so the only question is midfield. I think Jürgen goes with his trusted 3 of Hendo - Gini - Milner, though instead of Milner i'd like to see Keita.

      Fabinho for Milner and I'm happy enough with that midfield.

      Quite right. If someone had offered us 4 pts ahead of Citeh on 4th Jan a month ago we would have bitten their hand off so even if we lose we’re still in a great position. And I fancy the fab3 against Kompany and Zinchenko

      Win this and we take a huge step towards the title, could see City place their focus onto the CL rather than the PL and the gap might be too much.

      Draw and it will still be a long race, as 7 points is not that huge imo. Think we can do them, Klopp has Pep’s number.

      My point was that we didn't do well against good teams on the road so far. Of course we are playing better now. So it'll be interesting to see if we can also do some damage on the road against a top team.

      Not mad on hype but this is one of the biggest games of our premier league history I would suggest.

      A win here and we have every chance, a draw wouldn't be too shabby and a loss would take us back into the chasing pack.

      What a game, I just want to fast forward to Thursday night.

      Like who? Chelsea and Arsenal where we got very respectable draws?

      European games I agree were slightly poor - but this is different.

      or winning at Wembley against Spurs . This week we really don't want any of this negative sh*t do we. German Panzer ( a very insulting name by the way) needs to get with the programme and I think I will change my name to 633 Squadron Bomber Command

      To be fair we would probably fair better without them 2 than they did with KDB, Silva and Fernandinho missing.
