    Liverpool v city to end a brawl.

    8 red cards each points deduction, have to play in empty stadiums.

    A man can dream.

    Will be interesting to see if Pep has learned from last season.

    Thought we were eight points behind the leaders. Did not know it is nine.

    Wonder what the odds would be on City, Liverpool and Chelsea all going unbeaten this season.

    The best outcome from Pool and City?

    I'd go with a draw. If City win there, they might improve on last season. I guess for neurtals a Pool win would make the league more interesting but feck that.

    A draw opens the door for Chelsea to go top so that's probably best from your point of view.

    Hard to call it. As bad as City's record is at Anfield, if we play like we did on Wednesday we'll get smashed. I'm hoping Guardiola does what he normally does and tries to outplay us. They always play a stupidly high line as well and allow Salah/Mane freedom to run at their defenders.

    I hope De Bruyne isn't fit.

    Normally, I'd expect Liverpool to win as City's style seems very convenient for Klopp's approach. But this time I'm not sure you'll have the energy levels to stop them after two demanding games vs Chelsea and Napoli. City are not that great without KDB. But they will probably start with Aguero and Sterling instead of Jesus and Gundogan and could be way more dangerous in attack than in the CL game in April.

    Weirdly I don't think Aguero's ever scored at Anfield. His record against us at the Etihad is pretty much a goal a game.

    It'll be an interesting watch.

    I can't even enjoy watching that game with the situation we're in. If we were in the thick of the title battle and we won tomorrow it would be a very enjoyable watch to see who will drop the points but it doesn't matter to us anymore.

    By all accounts Bernardo is in top form too. Unlike Gundogan he can run all day.

    I think we've looked better than them defensively which plays into our favour, and this'll be their hardest game of the season so far so it's a big test for them.

    We've taken 4 points from trips to Spurs and Chelsea which gives us a bit of confidence.

    I'm excited for it anyway. It's always a great game to watch.

    It's a big test for both teams. On the one hand, City are in a weaker position as they are without KDB. But even without him they are arguably more potent in attack than Chelsea and Napoli. On the other hand, they might be fresh. The crowd might help you though. Unpredictable for me, could go both ways.

    Tonight Sky have mentioned that both these teams beat United about 8 times.

    Edit: Make that 9, just now.

    How on earth did these two beat us. They can hardly string two passes together.

    Glen Murray would actually suit Mourinho's tactics better than Lukaku :houllier:

    Hernandez's decision to move to West Ham has gotta be up there with some of the worst ideas mankind has ever had.

    Absolutely disgusting isn't it? Two of the shitest teams in the league, and we lost to both. Makes me sick.

    He's not brilliant but he was doing really well at Leverkusen. It had to better than sitting on West Ham's bench.
