We have the easier Christmas fixtures for sure. With the club world cup and all the extra fixtures, we might need them. If we can maintain this gap until we play City, and if we beat them, it may break their spirits. Early days, no chickens counted, but Klopp is playing every card just right at the moment.

I would put it that we have already played 3 Top 6 teams and won in Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City.

City have played maybe 1 Top 6 team and drew against Spurs.

Man Utd are not going to make the Top 6 unless they sack Solskjaer now, so as things stand I see Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and Leicester as the most likely Top 6 teams.

January could be an interesting transfer window for us & City...



most likly we wont be buying anyone


I agree, it will be interesting to see what City do in January, particularly with the CB problems they have, Laporte may still not be back by the end of the January Window and they never replaced Kompany, which is definitely affecting them now. If they do not buy, I can see them continue to struggle defensively, particularly as even when Laporte comes back early next year, it will take him time to get upto speed and he will be vulnerable to injuries, particularly if he is rushed back.

They'll probably go for Koulibaly, players are not CL cup tied anymore. Or maybe not as he will be too expensive

And Arsenal are getting it together too. However fatigue, both physical and mental, together with consequent injury problems, might prove our biggest nemesis. It's way too early to be seeing the winning post. Let's just take it game by game, for now, please.

And Mane and Firmino travelling to Singapore to face each other in a friendly is not going to help either.
