      Too tough to call, we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment up front and City don't look like a tired team, we have the best defence but City don't seem to need a great defence when they are trouncing every team with possession football. I think it all depends where the teams we are both facing are in the league, whether it's fighting to avoid relegation or fighting for top 4. We need two massive efforts against Spurs and Chelsea to put us in a strong position. Salah? Love the guy but his touch lately has been abysmal and he needs to get sparking, can't win with 10 men.

      I do prefer to be objective but the final sentence in this post is just plain crap.

      So funny reading all the meltdowns on here because Salah is having a dip in form. Joint second top scorer in the Premier League with Kane, Aubameyang & Mane.

      The only player ahead of Salah is an out and out striker.

      Have faith all. As Souness has said, our issue lies in the lack of goals being scored from midfield, an issue that i am sure Klopp is aware of and trying to address.

      We're top of the League and in the quarter finals of the Champions League. Good times ahead.

      Your original; question was

      I was just saying i didn't say that we would drop more points than City. I just said we will probably drop points also, we could drop the same amount of points also.

      That is not what you said before but thanks for the clarification, I disagree with you by the way as I think they will drop more points than us as their luck will run out sooner or later.

      ??? ??? His goal scoring hasn't been as proficient as it was earlier in the season or last year but to compare that to playing with 10 men, really?

      Crazy talk isnt it !!. Salah has been brilliant, just not scored the goals of late. hes got assists and class link up play,  and superb tracking back, probably a few occasions during some games hes held onto ball too long, but then he produces the magic pass for mane's goal in Beyern. Hes also had some amazing defending v him, some awesome last ditch slide tackles, but then the ball has rebound to mane for him to score.  All good and all that stuff as Kloppo says. ;D.

      Once he gets that 50th LFC goal, he will score loads between now and end of season.

      Yeap, who is confident enough to say that we will be in a much better position or goal difference had we played our recent games without Mo?

      Come, let the brave one stick his neck out. Who? Waiting for people to cast the first stone.

      If we had a striker of a similar quality then yes we would have scored more but we don't plus even without scoring Mo is making a nuisance of himself and setting up others to score either deliberately or by accident.

      There you go... Mo is still a valuable member of our starting 11. Case is closed.

      What a load of bollocks, I'm fairly certain several of our players would easily get into the City team and vice versa.

      To be fair, it probably lost something in translation from the original Klingon, which I understand is his first language.

      On the Salah front I think he has been a bit unlucky and could've had 6/7 more. Obviously this season was always going to be bit "second season syndrome". But he has never stopped trying, never gives up any lost cause.Others benefit from the attention he gets.

      Yes he might be a bit tetchy, a bit less relaxed and that can lead to the wrong decision at the wrong time but I back Salah 100%. He is still a potent force for us. Long may he carry on with his brilliance. The only time I would have a pop at a striker is if he was hiding or wasn't putting in the effort.

      Not one for correcting people FL but you got this one slightly wrong. Quasimodo (a.k.a. Joleon Lescott) has a face like a melted welly and is more commonly known by his Latin pronunciation which is Skintius Stupidus Cuntius.

      Don't think anything will happen to them because they bring in big money to the business of their league and the higher footballing authority. Not going to be specific here, but you know where this line of thought is heading...
