We are so much engrossed with the transfer window. Rather say, by Balotelli. He hasnt even come at the club but it seems like everyone completely forgot about Man City fixture, so is the effect of the future legend Balotelli :bow: .

Liverpool vs Manchester City BvuGr2kIEAAlEiV

This will be the first clash of big boys in this season in EPL (Everton vs Arsenal isnt considered as big to clarify) Well if you see our record at Etihad, from following results you see that we have not won at Etihad in EPL since Rafa's team in 2008/09 season. And the one with the draw 2-2, we were about to win it, but lost it because of Reina's mistake. So it has not been an easy fixture for us since the rise of oil club.

Man. City 2 - 1 Liverpool

Man. City 2 - 2 Liverpool

Man. City 3 - 0 Liverpool

Man. City 3 - 0 Liverpool

Man. City 0 - 0 Liverpool

Man. City 2 - 3 Liverpool

And hence, it is heck of a challenge for Rodgers to change it this time. Team news for both teams as of now:

-Sergio Aguero unlikely to feature from start - Alvaro Negredo remains out
-Eliaqium Mangala also short of match fitness for Manchester City
-But Frank Lampard & Pablo Zabaleta set to be available for Manuel Pellegrini
-Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno could make Liverpool debuts
-Jose Enrique to be assessed of MNF clash
-Daniel Agger, Jon Flanagan and Oussama Assaidi all out for Reds
-Clash sees Premier League champions host last season's runners-up

That is BR's press conference before the game.

Spoiler:

So Moreno may start and the team I am expecting is:

Ming,
Manquillo, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno
Hendo, Gerrard, Allen/Can,
Coutinho, Studge, Sterling.

I am fully expecting some extra luck at least this time at Etihad and probably new boy Markovic wins a penalty and Gerrard scores the winner. SO Come on boys...lets bury the champions under the grass of Etihad and show what we are made of in spite of losing Suarez.

I can see us playing how we played against Dortmund. 3-1-5-1 on the ball and 4-4-2 off the ball.

Mignolet
Skrtel - Gerrard - Lovren
Can
Manquillo - Hendo - Coutinho - Sterling - Moreno
Sturridge

Mignolet
Manquillo - Skrtel - Lovren - Moreno
Henderson - Can - Gerrard - Sterling
Coutinho - Sturridge

Very very excited to see Markovic and Moreno play.

I don't know what to expect from this game, just know that am really looking forward to it.

Btw, not really a fan of having big games like this on a Monday night. Playing mid-table teams on Monday nights is fine, but these big matches should be on the weekend, imo.

The team I'd go with:

Migno
Johnson - Skrtel - Lovren - Enrique
Gerrard
Hendo - Allen
Sterling - Sturridge - Coutinho

I guess Moreno is going to start straight away, but I don't like the way Enrique is being ostracized.

Manchester City have scored exactly 2 goals in each of their last 4 BPL games against Liverpool.

Liverpool have conceded as many as goals in their last 4 league trips to the Etihad as they had in the previous 11 (10).

DS15 has scoted 32 goals in 44 league games for Liverpool.

Sturridge (136) has the fifth best minuters per goal rate in PL history (minimum 50 goals), ahead of former team-mate Luis Suarez (139).

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero (115 mins) has the best mins-per goal rate in PL history.

Edin Dzeko has scored five goals and assisted one more in his last 5 PL games.

The last time Liverpool came from two goals down to win a PL game was in this fixture in October 2008 (0-2 down, won 3-2).

Man City have scored 63 goals at home last season, more than 15 of the 20 PL clubs managed in total.

Both City and Liverpool won only 2 of their last 6 games against fellow members of the top 4 in 2013-14 (including a win apiece against each other).

A good performance early on in the season would be great. Moreno, Manquillo and Can could take proper monday night action Proud

A point would be great.

If we win this, we put ourselves in an amazing position. People will realize once again that it wasn't only Suarez and that we mean business. And teams will come to play us with more fear throughout the season. But we need to make that statement.

If you offered me a point now I wouldn't take it, I think we'll win this very comfortably.

no brah...they have too much to offer, the only way we will survive if we can defend in a solid way. I dont have any doubt that we will score 1-2 goals but we will surely concede; i will repeat this till I see some unity in our defense

Yeah, I think City are bound to score at least once, they've got so much quality and it's their home game. But I fancy our chances against them anyway, just a wee bit worried about our own chance-creation, it was missing a little something against Southampton.

Anyway, tomorrow is going to be a long day, waiting for this game from the waking up.

Line-up tomorrow according to Barrett: Mignolet, Johnson, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno, Gerrard, Henderson, Allen, Coutinho, Sterling, Sturridge

Disappointed that clearly the better fullback Manquillo has to be dropped for Johnson. The rest as expected. Was hoping Can would start ahead of Allen but he's alright.

I will give GJ one more chance in his preferred position to prove himself. Manquillo was good but lets see if GJ improves more this time because I fear that they will purposefully target that wing again and again seeing youn Manq there. BR must be seeing something in the training that he chose GJ.

Good, that's the way to go imo. I knew BR was going for a line up like this. I was hoping for Sakho but no way BR is dropping Skrtel now. Hopefully Markovic will get some minutes too.

#LFC boss also critical of Anfield playing surface. Reckons it's too slow. Says the Etihad tonight will suit his players much better.

Will it be 433 or 442-diamond hmm scratch . I think Coutinho is much better in the middle than he is on the wings, though I was very much opposed to this idea.

Not much wrong with that line up.
Let's give it our best shot and keep our heads high regardless of the result.
