      Pre-Match: Manchester United V Liverpool (24/02/19 - 14:05)
      Feb 20, 2019 11:28:05 am



      If we win this, I can see us going on a run and kicking on big time in the league. If we lose, all the momentum shifts back to City. This game is massive. We can play it down all we want as just another three points but it is more than that.

      Please no midfield three of Hendo, Milner and Gini. Dropping Hendo for this will be difficult after his performance last night and he possibly starts. You could also have Fabinho at centre half ahead of Matip!

      Time to stand up and show our mettle in the biggest game of our season so far. 1-2 Reds!!!  :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6:

      I think Fab and Wijnaldum are definitely in. It's between Hendo, Keita, and Milner for the last position in that midfield in my opinion.

      We are certainly stronger with the option to use the other 2 off the bench now RB is covered.

      You need more than momentum Keith. You need to perform at a level (technically) this team hasn’t shown any capacity for all season.

      Huge test for your lot - you need to at least TRY to play which (as we all know) is perfect for us.

      If we perform to our best you can’t win regardless.

      In which case so - quite explicitly - does your momentum surely?

      Listen - it’s a big game - but I actually think it’s arguably bigger for you. Good result could cement OGS, bad and bubble is burst and everything is up in air again.

      If we lose - we’re still joint top with 11 to go.......

      Back 5 and front 3 are pretty much straight forward, but the midfield will differ for each poster. For me, Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Keita , but they are in for a hell of a fight in midfield.

      Might need the height and strength of Hendo in the middle for this one against Matic and Pogba.

      Fab is a must against those flick ons from midfield by Lukaku.

      Disagree Scotia, much bigger for you. Your fighting for the holy grail of football, something you haven't won for nearly 30 years. Win this and confidence goes sky high for you and your fans.

      Think you know my thoughts on Ole anyway. Still Poch for me but obviously getting increasingly harder with so many wins under his belt now, time will tell. This is still the best, most anticipated game in the premier league not just for our fans but globally.

      I agree, without doubt it's a bigger game for us, and with us fighting for the title vs our biggest rival, I echo it being the most anticipated game globally this season.

      As for Poch, keep dreaming, you ain't getting him!!!

      Milners fighting and graft could be useful Yeh, just think he might go with a bit more experience of this fixture especially away from home

      Problem is these lesser teams always find an extra gear when they play us. So please we had last nights game to get the holiday legs out of the way against a good Bayern team who are regular semi finalists.
      Fully expect us to go back to the top of the league after this win scoring a few goals wouldn't go a miss either.

      I'm torn on who to pick for the midfield. Glad it's Klopp's job and not mine.

      I think Fab has to be in there, as does Gini. So that leaves Hendo, Milner and Keita. Think Keita sits for this one so it's between our two captains.....tough call to be honest. Based on Hendo's performance last night, probably have to side with him.

      Yep, agree with the poster above. Reckon we will see a midfield of Fab, Gini, Hendo. Difficult to drop Keita as there are real signs he is getting there but even more difficult to drop Hendo after that performance last night. Other two are nailed on in my opinion.

      I love how we all see things differently (at least the reasoned different ;))

      I’m just not in the “biggest game” of the season camp. I don’t wanna be either - I don’t think human beings can “peak” emotionally for 18 “cup finals” (max) between now and the end of the season.

      Fans as well as players.

      Not arguing with anyone who is I just don’t see it like that.

      The league isn’t won/lost based on it so it’s just another match against them for 3 points for me.

      Don’t lose sight of that in your desire to stay on track for the league. Sometimes that creates a crisis where there isn’t one.

      We all want for us to win the next 3, City to lose ‘em and then we’ll feel it’s in the bag......but it probably won’t happen.

      Sunday is an enormous test for Utd - they got away with one versus Spurs (thanks to DDG....again) and got their pants pulled down good style versus PSG.

      If we perform as we have throughout the season then we are at a level than Utd have no point of reference for and we will win.

      What a time to be alive and what a team to be following.

      Can’t wait.

      I have lost confidence in that team. The Bayern draw was too desillusional. We don't have it, we are the modern Spurs: close but not there. City won a lot of games on the road against the top 6, what did we? A draw @MU seems the best we can realistically look for. The only hope for me is that I suck and usually predict bs, so I stick to be pessimistic in hope that causes the negation of my prediction. That's how I am - all for the team.

      I'd prefer another start for Keita for the sole reason of hope that at one point he clicks. Fab & Wini along him in the midfield, the rest lines up automatically.
