      I’m sure City will adapt in the same way we did when Allison was out.

      If by adapting you mean being less stable in defence and conceding goals then I certainly hope you are right ;-)

      The mancs know what they are in for and Pep trying to soften the loss already with his correct statement about us being the strongest team in the world.

      Come on Sunday already!

      Good chance Ederson plays IMO. Remember De Gea was meant to be ruled out of the game against us but played.

      Would look very silly after saying what he has. Might be wrong but Lizard never said De Gea was out just Pogba

      Think Pep cares what people think? Was quite happily calling us divers as soon as their game finished.

      I want us to be at full throttle for this their defense won’t be able to cope with us. Atalanta were unlucky once they started taking the game to them and that was before the sending off.

      Have a feeling Mane will be we up for it and could run riot.

      I think we are vulnerable at the moment. I havent been convinced at all by any of our performances this season. Always found we have had lots of possession and salah hasnt been anywhere near his last 2 seasons.

      Nothing to do with the spirit. It's just an opinion. Doesn't mean he wants us to lose.

      Actually, I am same too. I do think we have recently become a team to let in a goal (perhaps to make it interesting for the opposition  ;D) which is not good against team line Shitty.

      I see this as a draw,  most likely 1-1.

      Why does everything boil down to Salah? See people saying how they aren’t convinced about the team this season but it’s like they have to get in that extra little bit about Salah 2 seasons ago. For a man having a rough time of it, he’s still got 8 goals and about 5 assists. Guess what, he was never going to replicate 40+ goals, name a player that has hit 40 goals in more than one season as a player from the Premier League.

      Perhaps not Premier League but if you want consistently high quality and goals look no further than Messi, Ronaldo and in the premier league I'd argue that you have Aguero who has been consistently good almost every season he's played.
      Salah is not even close to the level he was in that first season but he's still a very good player and has the magic to conjure a goal out of nothing, I just hope he can regain his mojo sooner rather than later.

      So we can't drop Salah, we can't sell Salah, yet we complain about Salah - that is if I put the two camps on this board together to form our collective view as one board.

      We seem to be confused about Mo. Live with it. He's starting tomorrow. I hope he scores a goal or two to shut his doubters up.

      I'll take it. It's still a freaking good result with points difference maintaining its status quo. Remember the league is all about points. Goals lead to points. Either we pull away or maintain the points difference or allow our lead to narrow. Anything apart from the last outcome is still a good outcome. Advantage Liverpool as of current points standing.

      I challenge you to find someone on here who doesn't hope he plays well and score, we all want that, its just that some of us have seen him play fairly crap the last 2-3 games and are a bit concerned about it.

      I disagree, with the issues Citeh have in defence, incl reserve goalie this is a hell of a good chance to stamp our authority, a draw will be much better for Citeh than us. I want us to go full throttle in this game, really scare the crap out of them.

      I hope he scores a goal or two so that we win the game. 

      It's perfectly possible to a) think he hasn't been in great form recently and b) hope he gets back into form ASAP.

      I genuinely think we are going to have our first clean sheet in a while. Just have this feeling everyone will be on their A game

      Bold move! ;)

      Regarding Aguero, am I right in saying he’s never finished as the leagues top scorer? Salah gets slated for not playing like the first season but he’s still won back to back golden boots and isn’t a million miles behind the top scorers currently. Consistency is a big part but Salah, more often than not delivers in one way or another. Even Aguero has had his spells, I remember a couple seasons ago he went near on 10 games without a goal.
