      Whatever the result of the City game tomorrow, if we can get past Chelsea we have a real chance of winning the remainder of our games and then we have a few live chances of City dropping points.

      Please beat Chelsea reds! Our record isn't great against them at Anfield three days. Nervy nights sleep ahead for me I think.

      stats don't lie its not my opinion the fact is he is stealing a living as a striker.
      Depending on what stats you look at it can fit the point you want to make i.e

      Shane Long Profile, News & Stats | Premier League
      https://www.premierleague.com/players/3206/Shane-Long/overview

      Daniel Sturridge Profile, News & Stats | Premier League
      https://www.premierleague.com/players/3154/Daniel-Sturridge/overview

      We all knew that Sturridge was a bit special so and played all long side some top talent where as Long only played in average teams  and still managed 51 goals in 289 apps vs Sturridge's  goals 76 in 216 apps... Both with 21 assists

      Imagine what Long could have done play for the like of City, Chelsea and Liverpool

      NB: Team no longer available

      I will be at a picnic :( Will only see the second half, hope by that time we already done the job!
      For Chelsea... I believe that when Klopp plays both Milner and Henderson in Midfield we look slow and cumbersome. It is not a good midfield pairing

      Plenty of motivation for this one.

      The wheels came off in 13/14 against them, we were looking good for a title. Only lost it by 2 points in the end - so that result was massive, in a bad way. Can't recall being so disappointed after a game since that one tbh. Awful result. Plus what happened with SG made it a day to forget.  We have a chance to bite back for that one on Sunday.

      And the thing with the Chavs fans and the Mo chant will add some extra fuel.  We can use all that.

      F***ing Hazard is playing well again, we know what he can do - for me we need to soften him up a bit and think Fab should start. Would also play Matip, don't like the idea of Lovren lunging in on the wee sh*te as he's making his runs. Dejan can get a bit anxious in big matches against top players.

      TAA might struggle defensively, his form going forward has been OK - playing Milner is an option instead. Not sure about that one though. TAA has more pace, and offers a lot more in attack. And don't want to get to defensive.

      Would probably go with:

                       Allison
          TAA Matip VVD Robbo
              Keita Hendo Fab
            Salah Firmino Mane

      Given who played last match, this is probably unlikely. Could see Gini/Milner come in. But I'd start that way.

      Nothing less than 3 points will do. Go out there to win, not contain.

      Running out of games, we don't want to be the ones to blink first. The Citeh game vs CP is no gimme. We need to be there...

      Not sure how Keita will cope with N'golo Kante has he is prone to the odd mistake here and there

      Massive day for us tomorrow wouldn't it be great if we had an easy day with Palace winning and us beating Chelsea 4-0 not going to happen though is it they are going to put us through it aren't they
      Well I fired up Fifa for the first time in a while and played tomorrow’s fixture, winning by that exact score line. That’s got to mean something. Salah, Firmino and a Henderson double. Put a £10 on it.

      I believe that is the way Klopp will play! Fabinho and Milner controlling and Henderson after Firmino pressing.

       I don't know, but It has lead to the defense being put under unnecessary pressure which can always lead to a goal, so why risk it when we know Chelsea is capable of taking thier chances and scoring goals...?

      Sturridge would have played and scored goals if only Klopp gave him that chance.

      But that's the past now. All we can do is remember his quality such as the incredible equaliser he scored against these boys last time. Hopefully we won't need him to bail us out again today.

      I so well remember playing Chelsea in the 1965 F.A.Cup semi final,the Chelsea manager at the time was Tommy Docherty. He said that if Liverpool beat Chelsea it would be the miracle of the century,as you all know a miracle happened and we went on to win the cup for the first time.We can beat Chelsea without the help of a miracle and win that bloody E.P.L. for the first time-go the MIGHTY REDS and make us proud. :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Doesn’t get any bigger than this. Biggest game of our season and our title challenge right here. Anything less than a win probably kills our title chances. Can’t be passive today, high intensity, high press, don’t give Jorginho a second on the ball and kick the shi...te our of Hazard.

      Plus we've got unfinished business from 2014 to decide here.

      Come the f**k on you Redmen!!!!!!

      I'm not talking about him. You're talking up Shane Long

      Who is sh*te

      Think you miss the point I was making... That they both have a similar record albeit long has about 73 more games and scored
      25 less goals but in teams where he has not been surrounded by great players like Sturridge at City, Chelsea and Liverpool where he has not had the likes of Suarez,Sterling, and Coutinho to feed him (21 for those goals coming in the 2013/14 season)
      and both with 21 assists

      Shane Long goals has put us out of the the League Cup For Southampton (01/25/17) The third round of the FA Cup at Anfield (01/13/10) in Extra time  for Reading and he scored against us in a 4-3 win by us in 2006 over Reading,in the 1-3 game vs Southampton 05/04/19

      I was not talking him up...merely pointing out as in my original post

      In fairness I think that Long is a very underrated player

      Dan' his legs have gone, and to injury prone, although he still has a spectacular goal somewhere in him we are having to wait longer and longer before he can come up with one, and even Origi and Shaqiri are a head of him in the pecking order for that very reason... Should have sold him three seasons ago...No longer the same player he use to be
