      We shouldn't need to be at peak to win this, our form in December should be easily good enough as long as we take it seriously.

      Could be taking the South American sides for granted but I doubt they will be used to our pressing game and quality.



      Fazakerly, I seriously doubt they would have faced anything like us , the intensity of our play will have them bamboozled and not knowing whether to stick or twist, assuming we’re not going there  for a jolly Jürgen will have the lads ready and take this opportunity for further silverware very seriously, the boys themselves will want to perform and prove that they are one of the best club sides if not thee best side this side of the Milky Way.

      Looks like we play Monterrey, CONCACAF champions from Mexico if early round games go by form. South American champions will await in the final.

      Just looked them up and their league season finishes on the 15th December before it goes to playoffs.

      They're 11th out of 19 after 9 games so don't look like they are doing particularly well.

      Since they play two seasons per year, it is not unusual for the Mexican clubs to take a season off, so to speak. This team would struggle to deal with us at full throttle over 90 minutes, and they don't defend so well. Their strength is in drawing and executing set pieces.

      Just FYI

      Qatar 2022 World Cup venue to host Liverpool games at Club World Cup

      Liverpool's matches at the Fifa Club World Cup in Qatar will be played in a stadium built for the 2022 World Cup.

      The new Education City Stadium in Doha will host Liverpool's semi-final on 18 December - the same date as the final of the next World Cup will take place.

      Fifa has moved the World Cup to a new slot in winter because of the oppressive summer heat in Qatar.

      The Gulf nation is currently hosting the World Athletics Championships, which have suffered from low crowds.

      The Club World Cup will be the next major event there, with Liverpool taking part as Europe's representatives, having won the Champions League in May.

      Jürgen Klopp's Premier League leaders automatically go into a semi-final where they could play local side Al Sadd, managed by Spain great Xavi, Hienghene Sport of New Caledonia or Mexican side Monterey.

      They will remain at the 40,000-seater stadium for either the final or third-place play-off on 21 December.
