Liverpool vs Man City - Sat 21st Nov 12:45 pm
An early kick off tomorrow gives us longer to drown our sorrows or celebrate over the weekend. A trip to Anfield is always tough for any team and it will be no different for us tomorrow.
We go to Anfield tomorrow to play a Liverpool team that a lot of people are saying are weak, I personally don't buy into that, I don't think we will see a Liverpool side that you could describe as weak for a long time if ever.
There is no doubt that Liverpool are not playing at the top of their game so far this season but their squad is not weak, it is only a matter of time before they come good again in my eyes. Saying that we are strong now and can go to Anfield with the belief that we can win, the Liverpool players will also be very aware of the threat that we carry.
It is time that we started playing well again and considering our 'typical City' tag it would be just like us to go and beat Liverpool at Anfield, lets hope so! I think we are good enough to go and get something at Anfield, it just depends what team turns up as usual. If someone could guarantee me that our impressive City side are going to turn up I would put my house on a victory, unfortunately we just do not know what they will play like due to their lack of inconsistency.
I am going to take a gamble and say that we will play well tomorrow and come away from Anfield with something, I suppose I am one of many hopeless City fan's but I do believe we will come good! CTID
Man City Team News:
Robinho (ankle) and Nedum Onuoha (thigh) are closer to fitness and may be included in the squad, Benjani is also back on the road to full fitness. Martin Petrov is expected to be out with a knee injury.
Liverpool Team News:
Fernando Torres is looking certain to miss out with a groin injury although Steven Gerrard is expected to start after recovering from his own groin problem. Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson should both play after sitting out their countries games during the International break, David Ngog has a broken nose but may play in place of Torres. Alberto Aquilani may make his first start and Jamie Carragher is back from a ban.
Possible Man City Line Up: Given, Zabaleta, Lescott, Toure, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Barry, De Jong, Bellamy, Tevez, Adebayor.
Possible Liverpool Line Up: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Kuyt, Mascherano, Lucas, Aurelio, Gerrard, Torres.
My Prediction: Liverpool 1 - 2 Man City.
Worth A Bet: Tevez scores in a 2 - 1 City win. Tevez scores anytime.
