      Of all their players to have hit top form now, KDB isn't the one I'd have been choosing! He's flying at the moment.

      On the counter, we need to be rapid and ruthless with our chances.

      I think Firmino will start with Mane and Salah on the wings.

      Not so much their weakness, but we cannot let them dictate their false tempo. We must press them, non stop. We cannot let them breathe or think.

      I don’t think we’ll do that. It’s going to be so hard, city will dominate the ball like they did against us at anfield.

      It’s going to be a f**king tough game! But if we take the few chances we get, then who knows - it might open them up.

      What I love about Klopp, he’s going there to win! No other manager does that, he’s the best because he plays to win every single game - whether it’s watford at home to Barca at the Nou Camp.

      I love him and love this team.

      Perhaps that's why Klopp is Liverpool's manager, and I'm not...  :roll: :lmao: :lmao:

      Cannot fault you on that last line. ;)

      I’d have Diaz up against that horrible cnut Walker, I think he can be got at and has a angry streak, could possibly lash out if things don’t go his way, and Diaz is ideal for getting under his skin, they lack fire power for me, so if we’re as solid as we can be it’s possible  we can shut them out completely,

      It’s the exact opposite for them, although a very good defence I think our firepower is far superior and relentless, we could capitalise in the latter stages using our fresh legs against their tired legs and minds, centrally we could cancel each other out, while they have KDB, Gundogan, &  Foden, we have Fabinho, Thiago, and Hendo/Naby,

      I think they will target Trent, or that side of the pitch, when Trent pushes forward Hendo, more often than not will fill the void, that’s where they’ll see our weak spot, imo, I think our biggest weapon on Sunday  will be patience, I can see us passing  and probing, looking for openings, and with a bit of luck will get thru them, but we really need to be very solid at the back, can’t emphasise this enough,

      The whole game/fixture is finely balanced, it’s got draw written all over it, but if you are a neutral and were to hazard a guess at the winner, I reckon 7/10 would say Liverpool, simple because of our momentum, our defence and that firepower up front……

      …….I think we start with…..                Alisson
                                              Trent   Matip   Virgil   Robbo
                                                Hendo   Fabinho   Thiago
                                                 Salah      Mane    Diaz


      …………....and finish with…….                Alisson
                                                Trent  Matip   Virgil   Robbo
                                                   Milner   Fabinho   Naby
                                                      Salah   Jota   Diaz



      Psychologically, I think we’re in Pep’s head, they had a 14 point gap a few weeks back and suddenly it’s down to 1, that has had to have a effect, a couple of seasons back we got right up his f***in nose, beat them in the league game as well as the CL, we were breathing down their necks and they cracked, they do not handle pressure very well, and I think that will be the straw that breaks the camel jockeys back, I also think Pep is inferior tactically to Jürgen and prone to making wrong decisions when under pressure ,


      Unbelievably Massive game this, probably title defining, we win, it’s ours to lose, we lose it’s doubtful we overhaul them, a draw wouldn’t be the worst result as far as I’m concerned, we’d still be breathing down their necks and the pressure still on them, for us, it’s probably the biggest game since the 2019 CL Final, bigger even than the semi V Barca, one more thing, Jürgen will say the right things prior to KO, he will have them  prepped and ready for battle, we never give up, and we are battle hardened, further experience City don’t necessarily have.


      LET’S DO THIS  !!!!!!

      How did they dominate the ball at Anfield? It was 52% -48% in their favour that’s not dominance. Without Dias I don’t rate their centre half options nor their right back I would throw the kitchen sink at them.

      Chances may not be plenty so have to be ruthless . For that Jota has to start I know he misses a few but his instinct in the box is what we need

      Come on mate, did you watch it? That first half especially. I was shocked just how much they dominated us.

      My gut feeling is negate de Bruyne and this is another 3 points. A fabulous play,their everything.....negating him easier said then done.

      Ive always said teams who have a go at city get something, we will certainly have a go. We live in their heads they think sbout us, and fear us. We have to feed on that fear

      Thiago and Mo will be key

      Honestly cant see past us winning, unless we allow de Bruyne do as he wants

      Might come as a surprise, but I actually don't want us to trash them. I don't want our lads to become overconfident (though I trust Jürgen will keep their feet on the ground), but mostly I don't want City players to be 'angry' ahead of our Cup tie. A nice 0-1 will do this weekend. We can trash them in the Cup.
