Go there and get the 3 points coupled with a big performance and it could propel us on with the momentum for the rest of the season. Even a draw there and we are still bang in it.
The margin of error now really is small. Despite what the media believe though, City could yet drop more points. They’ve lost 4 times this season.
Souness annyoyed me yesterday saying “Liverpool have got to win every game now to win the league” - well in fact Greame, no we don’t. We can still afford to draw a game and still win the league on the other hand City can win every game 6-0 and still not win it so I don’t really get what he’s trying to say there.
Make no mistake, we are capable of going on a winning run and if we find our form at just the right time then nobody can stop us but ourselves. Up the Reds 🔴
We know what he's saying, what every other pundit has said since before Day 1. "City have the league won, and nobody else should show up and upset them".
It's easy to get caught up in the hype about them, and obviously he has. It's not long ago since they told us how many points they would win it by, and the race would be officially over by February. The reality is they're not as good as they were last year, that's not an opinion, that's a fact.
This is how Real Madrid fans felt when watching Barcelona dominate all those years. The depressing reality that most teams give up against City before ko and lie down as soon as the game starts. The key to taking points off City is to not lose the plot early on. If you can stay in the game, preferably until half time, you stand a good chance of getting a good result. It sounds obvious, but they try to kill games in the first 20 minutes, and when they're 4 up by then, you may as well do what the pundits suggest and just go home. We got the same treatment last year, after Moss did what Moss does and got himself in the headlines again. Every other time against them, we've shown we're more than capable of being a match for City, despite who is on their bench.
It's still in our hands, but there's too many games left to expect to win them all. Then again, we don't have to, and I don't think they'll win all their games either. It will be like the games themselves between the sides. Ding ding, rollercoaster football at the very highest level. As fans this is what we want, and everyone should enjoy it. We don't have to look too far down the road to find clubs with their season over already.
