Afternoon lads,

With the big game round the corner I was interested to know what people's predictions were. It's the one game of the season I genuinly don't enjoy. If you get a result it's the best, but before hand I don't enjoy it one bit to be honest.

Now I think there's more pressure on Liverooo than ourselves for obvious reasons, we've started well with dropping points just once, Liverpool have struggled so far. I think united can afford to lose but I'm not sure Liverpool can.

On current form I should be confident. Yeh in a game like this form goes out the window and you tend to turn up against us more often than not. I'd probably settle for a draw now to be honest.

We have a couple of key injuries, Pogba being he obvious one. And I think he's detrimental to the side. If he was fit I'd be a lot more confident of a win. It I had to predict now I'd probably say I fancy a draw.

What's you opinions?

We haven't been playing well. But hopefully as per usual, form goes out the window and we can get a win. Honestly I don't even try and pick these games. Just hope we go out there and give it a good go.

10 Oct 2017 12:49:45
I'd be very disappointed if Liverpool don't win this one comfortably.
3-0 to Liverpool : Salah, Mane and Wijnaldum 🤝.

10 Oct 2017 13:03:19
3-2 to Liverpool Salah, Mane and Lukaku will be on the score.

10 Oct 2017 13:06:34
I'm worried also! If you hadn't improved in terms of goals I wouldn't have worried and I think it would have been a boring 0.0 but with us we know we have tos core to get any result as our defence is so poor so should be goals. I see one hammering the other and quite honestly I don't know who. I'm predicting 1.3 either way.

10 Oct 2017 13:20:45
I don't think detrimental means what you think it does stand? It means " causes harm" or sumin.

I think Jose will bottle it and play for the draw again. you're right, I think, when you say how important this game is to liverpool, it could change our season. I think it is just as important for utd, if utd win they will be hailed as serious contenders if they lose I think most people will be leaning more to city as title winners.

I'm with you in the sense that I find the tension too much to call enjoyable. If we win, I think we still have an outside chance of winning the league. Massive game.

On form utd have the edge but we are at home and I think we will win it.

10 Oct 2017 13:28:47
With Ron here. Every game against united I expect to beat them. This could really kick start our season. What I do not hope to see is our heads drop if we concede a silly goal or the ref makes a clanger. We've the players to score against their team regardless of any bus- that's what we should focus on.

10 Oct 2017 13:31:57
2-2 is my prediction. And I will take that no problem, it won't be easy for either teams. I want it to come and get it out the way, the wait is a bit too much.

10 Oct 2017 13:40:53
If I was offered a draw now I wouldn't take it. No way, we are at home and utd haven't really been tested this season. It's our game to win or lose.

10 Oct 2017 14:14:46
superred, everygame is a test in this league mate, to say they haven't been tested is jumping the gun a bit.

10 Oct 2017 14:40:31
Can see us coming out the traps very quickly in this one, if we can take the chances I feel this will be a comfortable win. Big test for United also as their finally facing tough opposition.

10 Oct 2017 14:44:26
Always get a bit nervous before this fixture, mainly because Liverpool treat this game like the Champions League final. Being 7th or 2nd Liverpool will turn up and will be pumped for the game. So it will have goals.

I do disagree about Jose playing for a draw. That simply wouldn't happen. Parking the bus is not playing for a draw. It's keeping the other side from scoring by sacrificing your attack somewhat. That doesn't mean there will be no goal attempts though.

Yes we will probably adopt a 352 which will look a lot like a 532 at times, but we will try to win the game. Jose will be disappointed with a draw and wouldn't take it if offered now.

10 Oct 2017 14:49:42
We’ve shown we can handle Lukaku before provided we can limit his service however set pieces will be a factor - give away too many balls into the box and he’ll score. Rashford also worries me though, especially as our defence struggles against pace. I do think our forwards will discover some form again though, particularly at home in a big match. I’m going for a 3-2 win and for it to be the result that triggers a Chelsea like dominance to take us to the title! 😁.

10 Oct 2017 15:35:12
Corleone dude, I get what you're saying mate but Utd haven't played any of the top teams yet have they? Im not sure actually. We have had Arsenal and City. Utd's biggest test has been Stoke away 2 2 draw hasn't it?

10 Oct 2017 15:39:59
Love it SGRED, I think you're right actually, some people will read your post and see the raw optimism and smile, but there is truth in that as well. I think a win over Utd will proper kick start our season and our forwards will find their form. I think firmino will score and I reckon AOC might score a screamer.

10 Oct 2017 16:19:51
I hate to be pessimistic, especially against United but I just can't see us winning. Draw or lose depending how Jose sets up his team. Hoping to be proven wrong and then it'll be a bonus!

I fully expected us to batter City when we played them and couldn't have been more wrong, it was a real reality check for us. Only time will tell!

{Ed025's Note - they have played no-one yet A.C. and although they have looked decent and have scored a lot of goals i think this is their biggest test to date and liverpool are well capable of beating them mate..

10 Oct 2017 16:26:33
Hmmm, think this is going to be a painful match. Sadio is now out and Phil and Bobby don't even kick off till tomorrow morning so I doubt they will be fighting fit to start Saturday midday. Hate to say it but I fear we will get tonked 1-4 :o ( I will be hiding behind the sofa. or a bar somewhere.

10 Oct 2017 17:17:07
Are Coutinho and firminio playing in like 7 hours? or 31 hours?

Either way with time zones, travelling, possible injuries. Must be terrifying for Liverpool fans. I guess Valencia for us is playing then too?

10 Oct 2017 17:44:43
It could easily be 5-0 or 0-5 - both teams look capable of ripping the other to shreds.

10 Oct 2017 17:49:45
00:30 tomorrow morning UK time. So whilst I'm sure they'll have a comfy private jet to get them back, there's still the risk of fatigue/ injury IF they play and then the travelling. I'd assume Valencia is in the same boat (or plane! ha ha ha)

{Ed002's Note - Private jets are not "comfy". They are convenient.}

10 Oct 2017 18:18:10
Doesn't that depend on whether they are "non-standard" private jets ed?

{Ed002's Note - The clubs will share the cost of a run-of-the-mill standard rent-a-jet Ron. Typically something like a GV or G550 because of the range. In the past Mr Abramovich has offered to use of The Bandit to ferry players from various sides back to England - when convenient of course.}

Thanks ed 😘
It was a slightly rhetorical question after VVD was spotted flying "non-standard" private jets during the transfer window 😁.
I do appreciate the answer though ed and once again displays your great breadth of knowledge. Your knowledge is undoubtedly "non-standard" 😉.
