    Right ignoring all bias and hatred for both clubs on here, what’s everyone’s score prediction for Liverpool vs. City?

    I think we might beat them but a draw is a safe bet.

    Think City will win, Sane and Sterling will have a field day against your FB's.

    Both the City and the Pool defences are shaky but City at least can defend by keeping possession. Even with the inclusion of VvD, the City attack will overwhelm them. 3-1 to City.

    Our full backs aren’t bad imo although I don’t know how I’d feel about Alexander Arnold against Sane.

    I’d be fine with Gomez and Robertson though.

    Somehow I always think Moreno, Clyne and Milner when it comes to your fb's.

    Moreno would be torn to pieces.

    Still split on Pool City. On one hand, hope City lose so that they don't go unbeaten. On the other hand, a Liverpool win could give them confidence in the race for top 4..

    Hoping for a Pool win. Won't be cheering them on exactly, but sooner City are brought back down to earth the better.

    Otherwise, hoping for Everton and Leicester wins but not expecting much.

    He wouldn’t be in position to be torn to pieces. He still has some issues with pushing too far forward and leaving his CB exposed.

    Milner hasn’t played LB for a while apart from one or two games and Clyne has been injured for ages.

    Looking at the Chelsea lineup I think they might drop points.

    Good! Hope so. Are they playing Arsenal in few days again?

    Anyway, come on Leicester!

    Hope either a City win or a draw. Do not want Liverpool getting the confidence from ending City's unbeaten run. Let a smaller club do it. There is already a lovefest for Klopp that is rivaling the Pep one. It will be nauseating if he beats City. A couple of sending offs as well.

    Is there any logic behind dropping Christensen for Cahill?

    Can see Chelsea dropping points based on their form and i got a sneaky feeling Liverpool will beat City.

    Regarding our game, it should be a good one, very open.

    Bournemouth will either play you off the park and beat you 3-1, or they will bend over and get demolished.

    What's going on with Fraser Forster? Is McCarthy really better than him?

    See Stoke still can't get a manager. Thought Sanchez Flores was nailed on for the job?

    He might not think Christensen is capable of playing 3 games in 7 days. If he's not back in the side against Arsenal on Wednesday, I'd be shocked.

    No sense in wanting Liverpool to beat City. Liverpool are direct competitors for finishing in top four and just three points behind us. We need to extend the gap.

    Guessing so with there being six names on the bench. Either that or he's having his medical at Chelsea.

    The replay against Norwich is on Wednesday :) Guess that is seen as more important.

    Oh, a tougher game then. He's surely rested him in that case.

    Questions are starting to be asked of him and he needs to kill a few of those only 2 league goals since September type stats pretty sharpish before the pressure really piles on.

    Questions by who? You?

    He's under no pressure. He could literally sit down in the centre circle for 90 minutes today and there's no chance Conte puts Batshuayi on.

    Made a U-turn and decided to stay in Spain. It's a shame because I like him as a manager.

    Is this the Chelsea anthem? It's horrendous. I feel like I'm in an elevator at some swank hotel.

    I keep chuckling at the thought of Andy Carroll somehow managing to wangle his way into clubs the size of Liverpool and Chelsea.

    Of course he's under pressure, do you think he's fluffing easy chances because he's in a positive frame of mind?
    Even the small things add up, have a bad game today and go read Chelsea fans views on Sanchez for 30m etc.
    Its starting to build and Morata needs to nip it in the bud.

    I think he needs more pressure on him (in the form of some competition for places), not less. Having a guarenteed spot in the starting line up is great for some players, I don't think Morata is one of them.

    Sanchez is a no-go. He's already a Man City player.
