      Pre-match Leicester City V Liverpool Monday 15th May KO 8pm
      May 11, 2023 06:23:15 pm
      Well this is the real business end of the season now, with only 3 games to go, two away and one at home.

      We take on struggling Leicester City at the King Power stadium, they've been around the lower end of the table all season and are fighting for their premiership lives after sacking our previous manager Brendan Rodgers, Dean Smith has taken over but is it to late for them to survive, I hope so.

      We beat them at Anfield 2-1 earlier in the season and we are now on a 7 match winning run to keep our hopes of Champions League football alive.

      Be interesting to see who Jürgen plays, will we see Trent roaming around the middle of the pitch, who will partner Virgil in defence and will we see 4 attackers again? The possibilities are endless for Jürgen if he has a fully fit squad to pick from.

      I'm going for a 1-3 win for the mighty redmen.

      I e also gone for 1-3
      I think we’ll find Vardy attacking our right back position with his pace if Trent wanders inside.
      Only to be expected, but we’ll be a bit exposed there.

      Could be a popular scoreline Gerns, let's hope Konate or Matip can cover Trent when necessary.

      If we turn up then this shouldn't be a problem. Leicester are in free fall and thier choice of manager hasn't helped them.
      But and it's a big but, we need to turn up to beat them to keep an outside chance of Champions league football next season.

      On paper this is a win, but as we know it isn't played on paper, so come on the Redmen let's keep this run going and have the 3 points.

      Agree if we turn up, should win comfortably. Tend to make our own problems, especially in defence. Although a victory of 3 or even 4  1, certainly on the cards !

      It's a cliche of course to say there's no easy games, but Leicester's league position anchored as they are in the drop zone, suggests this game should see us extending our winning run. They are in the last chance saloon so could come out all guns blazing which would suit us, leaving gaps to counter attack and pick them off.

      My heart says that the Leicester keeper will be retrieving the ball from the back of his net numerous times.

      But the way this wacky season is going, I’m also hoping that it’s not a banana skin game for us.

      4-0 Reds

      think the boys have really got their "game management" sorted out now and regardless of what sort of game it is we will get the 3 points. Results have been kind to us recently so lets make sure we keep the pressure up and watch Leeds with fat Sam tactics frustrate Newcastle

      Mo, Jota and Gakpo. Can't see us going with 4 attackers so Nunez hasn't done enough to warrant a place. Mid for me Fabinho, Jones and Elliott. Defense as per.

      With Trent coming inside I think Elliott offers better attacking support to Mo. Could kill them early on but I can see them fighting for everything. Our quality should see us come away with a 2-0 win.

      United starting to twitch..Rashford has gone on the sick and Ten Bob playing it down, wouldn't rule out nervy 0-0.

      We should win, but never know with a team fighting to stay in the league.

      A big win against a recent bogey team might still be irrelevant.

      Away from home to a bottom 6 (actually bottom 3) side. That's basically been our achilles heel all season. So I'm not taken anything for granted, especially as Leicester have some decent players. Still, we should win and keep the pressure on ManU and the barcodes. We've put ourselves in a position where we've no room for slip ups, so gotta respond to that and deliver.

      Don’t think we are going to make top 4 and neither should we after only turning up in the big games all season and having a run just as pressure is off.

      Europa league will make a change as we can’t play Real Madrid

      We know about Vardy's roadrunner impersonation, but the tank is nearly empty. Barnes and Maddison have had decent seasons with 12 and 10 goals respectively, so they will be a danger. We have to be on our toes when we lose possession as we are prone to being hit on the counter.

      Should be fresh enough, and we'll go at them from the off..but we have to be quick to kill off any counter attacks.

      Ali...Trent..Konate..VVD ..Robbo...Elliott..Fabin ho..Jones...Mo..Jota..Ga kpo or Diaz.

      Can defo see the geordies dropping points v brighton. Mancs should beat bournmouth. And they both play chelsea who have started to be at least a bit harder to beat.

      Still lots to play for so long as we keep winning. Keep them honest as they say.

      We should be fine as long as we watch out for their free-kicks. Dean Smith always knew ways to get around our defending when he was at Villa (not even included the 7-2 game). I'm sure we have prepared for this

      Leicester will be right up for it tonight. The kind of game we just haven't been up for this season.

      As others have said , be nice to win the 3 games and keep united and Newcastle honest. But it would be inkeeping with our season if we just handed it to them with another sorry away performance and tonight is a clear candidate for that.

      This season has left scars. I don't trust this team. Last season defeat here arguably cost us the title so it would be nice to somewhat put that straight tonight.

      Salah Jota Diaz front 3 for me, Fabinho Arnold and Jones in midfield. Gomez Konate Virg and Robbo at the back.

      We should be fine as long as we watch out for their free-kicks. Dean Smith always knew ways to get around our defending when he was at Villa (not even included the 7-2 game). I'm sure we have prepared for this

      I won't be creating the Live thread since off to see my mum. Hope we win to keep pressure on top 4 teams.

      We are on a roll so hope to continue.

      This is the best team we have. Jota should be in there somewhere but unfortunately no room!
