Tuesday 10th April - Man City (1) 1-2 (5) Liverpool (QF 2nd Leg)


Recommended Posts

The away goal will be crucial for us. If we score early on it gives them a massive mountain to climb. They've put a few past us already this season, but have Van Dijk at the back so I'm confident that we won't concede 4 or 5.

An early goal would be great. This match is already set up to have them attack from the word go, with the 3 goal lead - but obviously an away goal makes the job harder for them.

Same XI as last time would be ideal, with Gini playing in Henderson's "#6" role, which is a big downgrade unfortunately. Especially away from home where Gini always seems to play worse.

City are obviously dangerous. One of the best attacks in football. And it's not beyond them to come back from this. But it's our first CL run in a very long time and we've done well to top our group, destroy Porto, and put ourselves in a good spot to make it to the semis. Another big performance from us and it's almost guaranteed we get a European giant (or Sevilla), abd that would be very cool.

Big ask but we normally average 3 goals a game at home and nearly scored 7 against united the other day with a weakened team selection  ..this all depends on which City turns up on the night, need to go all out from the start and keep hold of the ball for most the game, 2 away goals will wrap this up for Liverpool

 

Ederson

Sterling - Kompany - Otamendi - Walker

De Bruyne - Fernandinho - Silva

Bernardo - Aguero - Sane  

BENCH:- Bravo - Stones - Laporte - Gundogan - Jesus - Delph - Diaz

City are desperate and I think there will be chances both ways; so as long as Liverpool are clinical and someone steps up at the right time to nab the away goal I can't see City getting through this. However, football's bizarre, any team can have a crap day in front of goal and City can always deliver something spectacular, so anything is possible.

The state of that lineup. xD

Although Pep fielded a similar thing against us in 2012 at the Nou Camp

After the 6-1 at Camp Nou last season, you can't rule out the better teams turning big aggregate score lines around, but I doubt Liverpool will bottle this. Maybe we'll see a 2-0 or 2-1 win for City but I think Liverpool will get the job done.

It's all out attack bud with Sterling playing more as a winger, was tempted to put Jesus in for Otamendi and just leave Kompany in our half xD   ...joking aside, when Pep has gone this extreme we have won games by over 5 goals with 80%ish possession so don't be surprised if you see something like above  ..Mendy might even play, he's been back for weeks now

First goal massive. Any Liverpool goal ends the tie to be honest but if City go 1-0 up in the first 20 or so minutes it's going to be a very difficult psychological battle for Liverpool and they'll have to make sure they don't end up sitting back and trying to hold on for 70 minutes.

That comeback required some very dodgy penalty decisions. It might take Manchester City somethint similar.

It all really depends on the intensity of the team and how much they put City under pressure. Which is possible even with a loaded midfield. The reason they didn't operate so well at Anfield is because they weren't afforded any time to turn their possession over into attack and by the time they got to that stage it was too late. I just hope its the same here because its not like we went to the Etihad and sat back, that red card ruined everything. I don't think its going to be one-way traffic tonight and we're going to see a very good game.

Hopefully Liverpool will be like a deer in head lights tonight as City return to top form :D

hoping that liverpool will not just sit and defend but to actually go out and attack City.    More like the first half of the 1st leg for the entire game.

Liverpool will score within 10 minutes. Then City will bang down the door scoring four, but go down to away goals.

This 1st half is going to be absolutely mental.

City know they need to be down Liverpool's necks off the getco, scoring at least 2 before the 2nd half could put them in good position. However even if Liverpool score one, the tie is over.

hopefully Liverpool's bus doesn't get bricked which is currently parked at the Lowry Hotel and departing around 17.30pm onto chapel street, up to trinity way, past Manchester Arena making a left onto pollard street then onto ashton new road, past the building site ;) and arrive at the stadium

You think 5 goals is beyond us?   ..last time they played at the Etihad they lost 5-0 :)

With that lineup you posted and the way Liverpool play, guranteed they knick a goal or two. 

The best way to defend is to attack and keep the ball, at our best they will be chasing the ball around all night with that line up and our pitch is alot bigger than Liverpool's who have one of the smallest pitches

It's absolutely not beyond you and I am a bit nervous for tonight but we are a completely different team to that one back in September. The state of the defence that started that game for us! The form of Karius and additions Van Dijk and Robertson to the back four make a huge difference to us. There's also the factor of the 10 men. It was a fairly even game up until that point

If any team in this country can turn this around it's City but I think we should be ok as we're capable of scoring at least one
