Evening all, wanted to echo the sentiments regarding Salah! . Get well soon and praying for you! Its wierd how you can feel like a family without actually meeting any of you guys but that's what we are despite the disagreements we can sometimes have. Heres to a victory tonight but more importantly a speedy recovery mate.

I got chatting to a guy in Rhodes from down south who was a Liverpool Fan. Both watching the City game by the pool and saying how we follow this site religiously.

Stay strong my man!

Fully agree Kloppboss. Salah is one on the most loved posters on the site. He is an absolute gentleman and positive energy. Hopefully he is back soon.

20 Aug 2018 14:57:05
I think there's quite a few who wouldn't mind pulling your ying yang on your stuff, Kloppsboss. But we'll wait until Salah is back since he does it so well. Great post, by the way. 👍.

Hi guys, been on this site for years but very rarely post and just visit about 100 times a day to read all the posts, hoping to get more involved this year.

Just wanted to share a thought about tonight's game and about one player I'm really keen to see how he does and that's TAA. If I remember correctly in the first half of this fixture last year he had a bit of a torrid time up against zaha and some of his positioning was suspect, the second half i remember he improved hugely but I want to see how much he learned from that first 45mins, to make it more interesting he will have Gomez next to him so that whole side lacks a bit in experience (as much as it can with a champs league finalist at right back) .

How do others feel they will do tonight?

Cheers
Lalala.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 14:10:13
The lad bagged sane. Nuff said.

Still young. Shown enough quality to have our trust through any dodgy periods which he will still have.

He's our rb. That's that.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 14:55:54
Hi,

I think the games TAA struggled in last season were Man U and Crystal Palace away - 2 teams that play differently to Man City.

Sané (or it seems to be Mendy this year) stays out on the left and the ball is played directly to them. TAA seems to handle those one-on-ones well.

The problem has been when the striker (Benteke or Lukaku) goes short to get a flick on from a goal kick. It caught our defence and midfield out of position a few times. That’s why I see it more of a team problem that just a TAA issue. I’m hopeful that a midfielder has been told to watch for that tonight so that TAA is not exposed by it.

I could be wrong of course! Just my own thoughts.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 15:01:45
Also, I watched Crystal Palace's opening game and Zaha played predominantly on the right. That would make him more Robertson and Van Dijk's problem.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 15:11:14
I think it's a toss up still, because he is still very new to this stage of the game. We all know consistency is the most difficult thing to get when you're early in your career. He could have a horrible game against Zaha, like last time, or rise to the occasion and snuff him out, like he did Sane, in the ECL. All depends on his mental approach and confidence. We'll find out tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 15:17:32
I agree inca man as one of our midfield should have dropped in front of benteke to stop that flick on happening so often. This was in no way a criticism of TAA, I love the guy! I just feel this is a good measure of his growth as a player in quite a short space of time.

Good to know epic potato if that's the case I would be confident of stopping those balls coming over the top and stopping the issue.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 15:32:24
I think he's our automatic choice. He's absolutely earned it.

We all know that he'll end up playing further up the pitch at some point soon, but he's produced some great performances at RB.

Zaha would cause problems for any defence and he drifts around quite a lot for Palace, so I think it's a case of having to remain alert as a unit.

I think tonight will be an interesting match and a great test for our boys.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 16:04:01
TAA is our first choice for two reasons.

1. He's a very good young player who is very effective (if not perfect) both up front and defending.
2. Our options are significantly worse to the point of being highly problematic if TAA needs a rest for any length of time.

He's still young and some better or quicker players have gotten the best of him in the past (although his performances against Sane in the Champions League suggest he's come a very long way in this way) . But he's by far the best we have, and we would struggle to do better even if we tried to import (the only better RB's I think anyone has bought in the past 5 years in the PL are Walker and Azipallicueta.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Aug 2018 18:34:48
For the record, TAA only had one bad half against Zaha cos in the second half, Zaha did not get a sniff. Why? Cos Klopp pushed TAA further forward which pushed Zaha on the back foot cos he had to track back, something he hates doing. TAA took the game to him and eventually, we won. So there's that.

As for TAA being first or second choice, I agree with Hijkle. Clyne is a poor defender and an even poorer attacker on the right as he lacks any type of end product. TAA may have snuffed out Sane in pretty much both games BUT I don't see Clyne snuffing out Sane or Zaha (in one half) so in the end, he is first choice cos he fits the way Klopp wants to play.

Premier League Preview Crystal Palace v Liverpool 20 August 2018

{Ed's Note - Reid the Red has posted a new article entitled, Premier League Preview Crystal Palace v Liverpool 20 August 2018

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 12:52:32
Thanks RtR, personally I think Keita will be the Key man in this game.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 10:13:24
Tonights game will give us so many answers.
1) our defence will be tested (wanna see how Gomez will react)
2) Palaca will force balls into box (big game for Alisson tonight)
3) Can our midfield dictate tempo away from home when we play physical opposition.
4) how many Bobby Mane and Salah wil score?
5) how good Keita will be?

Agree13 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 10:35:55
Agree - this is where the rubber meets the road. our ability to win consistently away from home against tricky sides like this will determine if we are credible challengers or not.

Agree10 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 11:01:10
I have this eerie horrible feeling. Its LFC, i has never been smooth in the last 25 years. I think palace will give us a nice headache tonite. . Quite a few Ex LFC in there too. it doesn't look good. Hope we score 4 in 20 minutes to ease some pressure.

Agree3 Disagree11

20 Aug 2018 11:21:56
yes agree, its a good test away from home but if we do lose or draw it doesn't necessarily mean the season is over as many will have us believe should that happen.

Agree7 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 11:31:30
If I were one of the boys, and after having reached the CL final only 3 months ago, my confidence would be sky high. Beat the EPL Champions in 3 out of 4 games, and beat some of Europe's best teams to get to the Final. And then added vital reinforcements in the summer. If confidence was 50/ 50 last year, it should be 90/ 10 now. I wouldn't be overconfident at all, I would just tell myself to continue doing what we do as a team, and what we showed in the first game of the season.

Why is everyone worried?

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 11:37:13
What happens if the lads have a bad game tonight or we don’t get the win? Do we just pack up and go home. To me this is just another game. Our season won’t be defined tonight. We have another 36 league games to go after this one. Let’s just take every game as they come and enjoy them.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 11:52:12
Exactly ArAy. These boys know they are capable of beating any side, so as long as they are confident and not complacent then it should be an easy win tonight. I really think/ hope the Liverpool side capable of losing these sort of games is a thing of the past.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 12:57:54
This is the best team that we have had for 25 years. It needs to be to win the league. We have boss forwards. Boss midfield. Boss defenders and now we've got a girl in goal. who is boss.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Aug 2018 13:56:01
Spot on. These are the games that decide how good your going to be.

Home games and big games are a no brainer as there's so much motivation. Is it there away on a cold rainy night against palace, the game without all the bells and whistles and one where you are going to have to fight, grapple and potentially force a result.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 14:19:04
Agree one result doesn’t define our season but I think we’re at the point now where we are pretty close to the finished article and we have the strength and depth across the pitch to be able to control games against the likes of Palace, even away from home.

That’s what City can do, and what we need to do if we are to challenge. This game will be a useful measure of that.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 16:01:57
In a lot of ways, I think this is the kind of match that we need at this point in the season. It's the kind of game where we've slipped up in the past, it's against a decent side that have a bit of everything and it's away from home.

As others have said, a loss isn't the end of the world, or the end of our title chances. After last weekend, I imagine there's a fair bit of confidence going through the team - we have options on the bench and we've strengthened the first 11 incredibly well.

I'd usually be really nervous about games like this, but I feel sure we can get the job done. I'd take a scrappy 0-1, but I'm relatively confident.

Is it just me that feels like we've had to wait ages for the second match?
