      After reading Pep's comments, I expect De Bruyne will play, and probably Walker too. Looks like Ruben Dias is in line for a return as well (he was an unused sub on Wednesday).

      We will win.

      Personally I am hating the idea that we are going against City in every trophy - I know it’s exciting but the anxiety for me is massive of feeling like what am I gonna do if they prevent us cleaning up and we end up with just the league cup for all our efforts

      So starting today, opportunity to tick one off the list and get into another final under Jürgen! I’m greedy and want us to win as much as possible so when we look back on this era in future years we have a sh*t ton of trophies to look at to

      Come on reds!!!

      Approach the game from the off like we did the 2nd half Sunday well win, in fact we should tear into them for the first 20 like its the last 20 and we need 2 to win.

      Personally Id rest 2 or 3 to have them at max for utd on Tuesday.

      I’d go;

                     Alisson
      Trent - Matip - Virgil - Robbo
                    Fabinho
               Hendo - Thiago
          Salah - Bobby - Mane

      Can’t call this one. City the better side last weekend but had a more intense midweek game and the Wembley factor suits us more than them.

      Absolutely pumped already and still more than 6 hours to go!

      Think he will hold Jota and Diaz back today. This game won't be won till late on but it could be lost early on if we don't keep it tight in the first 30 mins or so.

      We need to press press press. especially the second or third ball they play out from the back. Pressing can induce an over hit pass and that's when we pounce.

      I'm going Mancheater 2 Liverpool 3.

      Looking forward to this can't wait. I always think we are going to win but I think we will have a real performance today from Mo and Sadio .
      Hope everyone who makes the awful journey has a day to remember and comes back with a sore throat.

      I get the idea that we don’t worry about them, and just play our own game, but with the pacey sides, we do look open to the ball into the space behind the back four.
      It gives me the jitters every game, I just wish we could lessen that risk a bit.
      Also with the set up we expect today, I think as soon as we lose the ball anywhere on the pitch, Hendo has to get tight to DeBruyne. Can’t let a player of that quality roam around unattended.
      I’m confident we’ll win today, but those two issues give me the shits. I’m sure it will be taken care of though !
      2;0 to the mighty red men !

      Just to add, after we win today, their title aspirations will go to sh*t as well. I expect them to end up with zero trophies this season !

      Citeh had a tougher CL game than us and one less day to recover.
      Athletico had them under the cosh for a lot of the 2nd half, and were physical.
      KDB and Walker might be out, or might be Pep dicking around.
      They had the better of the last game but hopefully we can push them more this time around.
      Would be a big psychological win to go through, and another final.
      Someone mentioned Jürgen looks a bit tired, and agree last couple of games thought he has.
      But still doing the business !
      Games coming thick and fast.
      Looking forward to it.

      I'm hoping after the last game, we know their strengths and weaknesses up close now. Correct our cover on their strengths, and attack their weaknesses, and we've got this done. Gotta press a lot harder for a lot longer. We always had them on the rack when we played heavy metal football. Lets remind them who we are !

      Impossible to predict the outcome.  Just hope we perform a little closer to our top level.  First half against Man City last we showed them way too much respect.  Hope Salah, if picked, gets a little bit nearer the form he was showing in the first half of the season.

      Enjoy the game, reds!

      No chance of that line up. There’s a reason Trent, Robbo and Salah were rested midweek and it wasn’t to start todays game on the bench too.

      I think Jürgen and the boys have earned every bit of our total support. I am so confident in our boys because they have been there before and at this level now they know how to get the job done.
      This doesnt mean to say they will not make us sweat for the win its how we do things.
