      Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      Nov 25, 2023 11:30:19 am









      Etihad hosting the Mighty Reds





      Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Jones, Jota, Salah, Nunez.

      Subs: Kelleher, Gomez, Endo, Konate, Diaz, Gakpo, Elliott, Gravenberch, Quansah.

      Curtis Jones returns to the starting line-up for Liverpool's clash with Manchester City this lunchtime.

      The midfielder is one of two changes made by the Reds from their last outing against Brentford earlier this month, with Alexis Mac Allister back after serving a one-match ban.

      Ryan Gravenberch, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate are among the substitutes.

      Looks like a ‘Christmas miracle’ healed their starters… hopefully karma bites them on the arse for that.

      Poor City, their team looks decimated with the ongoing injury crisis.

      Plenty of options on bench thought Jones would get the nod. Little worried about FBs defensively without pace of Ibou to cover . Come on boys let's do these

      City as expected at full strength bar kdb !!

      I wish our players healed as quick as theirs.

      Going to be a very difficult game against these plus the manc in the middle. Nothing less than a perfect performance will be enough and if they start sloppy today it will be over by half time. Need to be on it from the off.

      Like the look of the team. I'd have gone with Grav over jones . Klopp has alot of faith in Jones ... let's see what he can do today.

      I think this could go either way, with a heavy score line either way… we show up and every forward is on sync, could very well win 3-0… but at the same time our defence worries me, especially with MacA in front of them, there’s just no pace in it… so could easily be 3-0 to them… at their sh*te empty stadium too… so hopefully all you’ll hear is our glorious away support to push us to a win…

      I would settle for a point away, but all three would be better, with goals from Salah, to reach his target.

      Trent needs to be all over doku. He's quick and he's dangerous. Can't afford to leave him in space.

      I hate that little c*nt silva and fully expect him to be a thorn again today.

      This is certainly a good gauge today for where 2.0 is in its progression.

      Ibou would bring a bit more pace, but to be fair Matip has seen some good form lately.
      Full backs always a worry. Missing Robbo and Trent shifting inside doesn’t help with not covering the rb spot.
      Would Grav be a better option to Mac in the holding roll 🤷‍♂️ who knows ?
      Jones has clearly impressed in training to get the nod, and the three up top, just what I wanted to see.

      Now show the boss he made the right choices and go out and hammer the cheats.

      Have to say, we’ve got a strong bench today as well  👍
      Still happy with my prediction 1-3 to the mighty Red Men.

      Boss knows Nunez carries a threat and Trent might just pick him out today. But make no mistake a battle it is, fought with integrity from our side. Motivated by money from their side.

      Yeah, I overlooked that.
      Versus pace you need to read the game and be ready to drop off and gain a yard.
      That ain’t gonna happen with our high line. 😱

      Down the years we had intense fierce rivalry with United but there was a sense of honour about the fight. City were more to be pitied than feared. But now it's different, now they are an 'off the peg' force in the game.

      They are a twisted contorted mob. A sporting caricature. Tainted by dirty money. Dragging sporting integrity through the mud, a false dominance.This then is the true identity of Mancheater City.

      Regardless of the result today, they will get no respect from me.

      Doku V ……. Insert name, would scare the sh*te out of any rwb, heard a rumour tho that Trent had a pocket sewn into his shorts, dunno why, though 🤔😜



      Obviously our toughest test to date, and I think we’re up for it, City have a plethora of class players so no surprises and we have to expect a proper battle, preparation is key and @ 12.30 we’re never at our best, however that’s a added challenge and once we’ve got going I think we’ll manage whatever is thrown at us, I’m quietly confident and reckon we’ll do them !!



      1-2 Mighty Redmen

      Don't think he rates Jones over Grav necessarily  just Jones offers more protection for the back 4 Grav will replace.him if we are behind

      Trent will have to hold his position much more today. Jones will have to double up with Kostas. Macca will have to be on high alert. Going to have to work work work and hit them on the break.

      Haarland in. Phoney injury obviously. Octopus by name. Never seen a striker who flails his arms around as much as the 'blob. Like a friggin' windmill half the time.
