Must win for both 

Or at least us not losing the game. Dropping to a 3 point gap with the December we have coming up would be very disheartening. 
 

That being said, we have all the tools to take that City defence apart. Hopefully our midfield is all over theirs and stops any momentum they try and build with the tippy tappy shit. Somebody clobber Sterling an all.

Liverpool win this and the league is theirs.

Agreed. It would take a catastrophic slip up from them to not win it.

You seen our December/january fixture list? Its inevitable that we will drop points.

A draw will do nicely here if we don't win this. I can't imagine the kind of pressure this City team is under going into this because they know better than us that come December there will be a chance to leapfrog us as I think we will drop points during that period. Pep has issues at the back and from what I was reading Ederson may not make the game? That's a big miss for them as he's a distribution point at the back.

But I can also see Man City dropping points. The games against Salzburg & Watford I can't imagine you'll go full strength purely to keep players fresh for when the fixtures comes later in that month. And at the moment, you only have 4 fixtures in January (+ FA Cup). It's not that intensive right now. Obviously beat Villa in EFL and then it gets a bit more hectic. 

Liverpool have shown they can grind through to get 3 points when not playing at their best though.

The gap would be too much, IMO, if Liverpool win this.

Only thing in our favour is that after City we will have played all the 'media top 6', plus yourselves. 

City have played only 2 (after us) so they have some hard games coming up. 

They have had a proper easy opening to the season. It's pretty amazing we are 6 clear as things stand.

Ederson being out is a massive thing. Gonna go for a draw though. Don't think Liverpool will risk loosing and so will play slightly more defensively

Nah, second choice keepers always play the game of their lives at Anfield. Always happens.

It'll either be one hell of a match or it'll be dull as... 

Can't see Liverpool losing it though. A draw at the worst.

Yeah but remember mate guardiola doesn't do cups and Leagues xD 

Nah in all seriousness mate I think you really have to not loose. Man city are brilliant, but so are Liverpool. Two best teams in Europe in my opinion. If you loose I actually don't think Liverpool will drop enough points in the league for you to catch them. I think you would literally have to win every remaining game. Even city aren't good enough to do that.

That's basically what we did last season, from Dec 30th on wards we only dropped 3pts

You'd be surprised how well backup keepers do at Anfield - even the shit ones tbh.

Nah, I know this is the best Liverpool side I've ever seen. But I'm still apprehensive about this match and the upcoming season, tbh. From our perspective, specifically mine, here's how I see things: I've waited my whole life to see us win the league, we came excruciatingly close last season but we're up against this fucking ridiculous side. Meanwhile any time Liverpool fans get happy about anything, we're told we're insufferable and a huge percentage of the football watching population that is so gleeful every time we fuck up that are truly fucking insufferable and I just don't want to deal with them being a bunch of twats. But history has shown if we do fuck up, even though we're basically being asked to have an almost perfect season (which is absolutely mental), they will be a giant insufferable gaggle of twats.

So I'm basically desperate for us to do something as a football club that is truly a massive fucking ask, against this side that was even better than us last season (and were also incredibly close to a perfect season tbh), while we've got the most ridiculous fixture congestion situation I've ever seen (seriously, Emery should be sacked because he couldn't beat a side that was trying to lose lol).

I actually think I'm pretty optimistic about us, which is pretty rare because I'm generally not a very optimistic person. But I'm also weary as fuck because if there was ever a banana skin right before this tricky festive period... it's being tipped as favourites against this fucking Slave Trader FC side that I absolutely fucking loath.

@Dr. Gonzo it's tough. Man city are the possibly the best premier League side ever.  To not win the league with 97 points is ridiculous. And the thing is they will have to get that many again probably to win it because city are just relentless.

I expect Guardiola to use the same defensive tactics like last season. 

I also expect it to be a dull match. 

My only worry is Lovren, who will most probably start. He is due a howler.

I'm not certain we will lose but I definitely don't think we'll win... Too weak in defence at the moment... we've not had many clean sheets at all and think cities attack will be too much.

Our best hope it's they give us more respect than we deserve and play tentatively towards a dull, low scoring draw

Need to get back to the chaos of the two games in 2018. Issues at the back for them which I think some of our fans are forgetting when they highlight the fact we've not been as solid this season compared to last. 

I would expect Guardiola tries to replicate their performance at Anfield last season. Can he do that with their issues at centre back though? This Liverpool team is very different to the one that started that game at Anfield last season too. Gomez started at right back that game which certainly won't happen. Our game has evolved to include the full backs much more in our play since then. Fabinho also wasn't in the side at that point last season and he offers something with the ball that the other two who will probably start don't

Is that more respect than this Liverpool side deserve? Guardiola showed in the game last season that he'd learnt from the two games in 17/18 and they were noticeably more cautious. And that's not a criticism. Why would you choose to go toe-to-toe with this Liverpool side at Anfield?

I don't agree that the league's over if Liverpool win this. Silly talk, it's not even mid-November. Last season they were about 7(?) points clear around Christmas time and it turned around and they were already an incredibly good team at that point.

The more Sky Sports movie trailers I see about this match, the more I'm convinced it's another 0-0.
