    So arguably the biggest game of the season.

    A few possibilities with Ox in a rich vein of form and having history against City.

    Still I think Klopp will go with tried and tested.

    Becker
    TAA
    Lovren
    VVD
    Robertson
    Gini
    Henderson
    Fabhino
    Salah
    Mane
    Firmino

    I expect us to win this game, by a margin of 3 goals at least.  Sane is not playing for them, and he is the only player in that squad that ever worried me, the rest can be dealt with.  I dont think they have anyone that can deal with our lot.  

    I AM BEING 100% SERIOUS.

    For those of you 'experts' - seriously look back at the football you have seen in your lives, how many teams have dared to play their entire team in the opposition half and get away with it ? Its time someone stepped up and gave them the fuck of their lives, IT WILL BE US.

    Will be tough and extremelly interesting. As I don't agree we will win with 3 goals margin I can see that City defence having a few mistakes in them. But Pep is aware of this so they will be shielded by deep midfielders. I think they will try to keep it clean and attack the room behind TAA especially.

    I think Chamberlain will play. He has a great record against City, played well last night and was taken off early enough to suggest Klopp has him in his plans

    I definitely think Klopp is playing with the idea.

    I've got a feeling we're going to absolutely abort City.

    Something that shocks me about us, even when we're playing shite, the way we keep the ball is absolutely incredible, it's relentless and spectacular, we are the best at it I've ever seen. We showed this last season in the game we lost (due to two wonder goals), we are capable of dominating the ball against City (and I think we're the only team in the world that can do that) and in my opinion we have improved since then and they haven't, so I can see us doing this against them again on Sunday, but to a much higher degree, and I think City will struggle with that.

    For me the question is can we contain their truly world class players, and will Pep come up with a game plan to countenance our ability to strangle a game?

    Basically, this all comes down to whether Lovren will be a massive thundercunt or not.

    I expect City to try and fight their instincts as they did in their last trip to Anfield. We will want to draw them out and ambush their fragile defence. I'm really looking forward to this.

    I hope we win, and I’m cautiously confident, but it’s going to be far from easy. Their make shift defence will probably leak a few, but they can hurt anyone on their day up front. 3-2

    Their defense is shit.
    Our defense is good but we cannot keep clean sheets.

    Basically, I doubt we'll see the 0-0 draw from last year.

    I am going in calm - we will either be ahead by 3, 6 or 9 points at the end of the day and I'd have taken that after 12 games considering the schedules both teams faced.

    City will go for the draw I believe. Aim to frustrate us just like Man U did and hit us on the counter.

    Yep, a draw wouldn't be the end of the world for them. I think it's going to be cagey.

    He is very good against us, but I don't fear him like Sane.  You need to give him the ball first, he ain't gonna run at you and do shit.

    Totally agree they are, but last season away  - we had more possession and they sort of held back once they took the lead each time, but in that game I was upset with the first half lack of aggression shown by our team in response to their aggression.  I really hope this season we really show them whose boss, it fucked me off last season when you see fragile pussies like the Silva's being more aggressive than Gini etc.. I mean those sorts of players (i.e. Siilva's , Sterling, DeB ) they are the ones that are supposed to be hacked to bits and then quietly just fuck off out of the game.

    Im not feeling confident in that we aren't finishing as many of our chances as we should, and we are giving away lots of chances.

    So many times this season, I've thought "good thing that didn't fall to a good striker."

    City have good strikers.  I'm sure we will be very competitive in midfield off the ball, but we need more from Salah, more quality in general, and we can't afford near as much lax play.
