    We host Utd at Anfield on Sunday ( which is my birthday so a win as a present would be nice).

    Same team as against Spurs if we’ve the same injuries I reckon.

    Our defence will have a job on keeping Rashford quiet, he’s in great scoring form.

    Time for another 2 steps forward 1 step back performance?

    Liverpool are like City, a different class at the moment.

    Makes it difficult to see any other result than a home win tbh.

    Especially as we are the only side to take points of them this season. They will be looking to rectify that.

    Who knows? I expected us to get a pasting at the Boo Camp a month ago but we won, and I expect us to get a pasting on Sunday but football's a funny old game sometimes.

    Historically a Massive fixture

    personally I would play the kids they have enough to take down this current United side
    they are going to try and hit us on the counter
    I think we should hit them with a bunch of 18 years olds
    all jokes aside I really do think our youth team would beat United

    and just something to have a smile about ,even if we somehow lose this game we will still be 24 points in front of United with a game in hand !!!

    Our only hope in thie game is that Liverpool will be expected to take the initiative as they are the home team.

    Can't see past a home win though.

    I wouldn’t rotate, we have a weeks rest prior to this so there is no issues to play our strongest team. Utd are the only team to take points off us in the league this season too and they’ll be up for this.

    They’re shite. Wouldn’t risk the front 3 against them personally.

    They are shite but i don’t see the point in resting anyone given the week off we have. Be nice to see the front 3 run wild to be perfectly honest so might as well go all out.

    Injuries are piling up - play the back four and rest the rest

    You’re right we don’t need to rest them. We’re on top now though and I like the idea of disrespecting them.

    They are shite but they will be up for this so I don’t think we should underestimate them too much.

    Well yeah would be nice to do what we did against Everton, but the league is far too important to be taking risks.

    Could a win here see off another United manager?

    Hope not.

    We should win but you know it's gonna be a boring, cagey affair like these games always are. 1-1.

    Just 10 point lead last year, if they blow it this year then shut the club down.
