    Its a three horse race. Anyone could slip up over a couple of games or get key injuries. We’ve had our fair share of injuries so far this season. We may get more. So might others.
    I feel this could be the key.

    Aussie chum, we still play some cracking football mate. It’s not heavy metal. It’s controlled st times and we are better defensively for it

    Peoples worry is, it will be the same old Liverpool and we will mess up

    It’s happened to many times not to be concerned

    Today is our biggest game if the season as it will show if we have the character to really bounce back. Drop points today and people will totally panic and the media be all over us

    Oz, no worries at all mate. Nine’s right in different fans seeing things differently.

    I was alluding to how quickly certain sections of the media change when the tide changes. A handful out there were ready to hand us the Title after City losing to Leicester and we beat Arsenal. 7, 10, 12, or even 15 points are not uncatchable when you consider we’ve just reached the halfway point.

    Now there is talk about City back in it which is just bananas to me because they were never out of it.

    Neither have been Spurs too – they are still a threat. Those football Supporters that have followed the Sport through and through for at least quarter of the century will understand how it works and not be swayed into media opinion.

    Of course there is a long way to go and whilst we’re on the journey, I feel we’ve all got to do our bit to get behind the team

    Have a good day as well mate and fingers crossed this afternoon delivers us all 3 points

    🙂

    I’m actually hoping today Fabinho is pair up with Van Dijk – we’d be solid then.

    Sean, I don’t think Liverpool will mess up this season they are a much more solid team than the Rodgers team but a 4 point lead is a narrow lead to defend if City do get into their stride as it’s beginning to look like they might and if the lead remains a narrow lead going into the run in it will be very very nervy and that will be testing for a Liverpool team that haven’t been n that position before.

    United away following the Bayern game looks potentially your toughest upcoming fixture if United continue in their current vein of form and Palace at home could potentially be a frustrating game as Palace on their day can frustrate anyone. But there aren’t too many obvious tricky games to come maybe Spurs at home.

    Speaking from experience you’ve just got to sit back and keep everything crossed. And you only enjoy a title win after its all over.

    Tbh if someone gave me £100 and said stick that on who you think will win the title I wouldn’t know who to put it on. But as it stands Liverpool are in control of their own destiny which is still the best place to be. Cheers 999

    I’ve been impressed with Fabinho of late but he’s not a Centre back. Needs must though.

    Anyone been watching the West Ham game?

    They’re showing resilience so far against the gunners and Nasri actually has been effective but they’ve not made the most of their chances in front of goal and should really be testing the keeper.⚽️

    Nine you’re right mate,but injuries to those will take a while to heal and its this or throwing in a kid.

    Personally mate I’m cool with the senior players able to temporarily fill in and provide support and stability.😎⚽️

    Nil, Fabinho can do a job at Centre Back against Brighton for sure.

    As I said it’s needs must and Liverpool have to play him there they have no choice and I’m sure he will cope with the Brighton attack but he’s not a Centre Back and if he has to play there for too long a period it might eventually catch Liverpool out.

    Shame about Gomez he’s looked a very good player this season alongside Van Dijk.

    Nasri can still play.
    I always liked him as a player. Top class on his day. Calm control passing to Rice. Arsenal defence asleep!

    Nasri is top player – wonder if Liverpool missed a trick not signing him even as a squad member.

    Rice has had a very good game. Arsenal really haven’t penetrated West Ham enough and have paid the price.

    I like the David Luiz lookalike. He gets better each time I see him. Still young I think.
