Not sure how much most supporters care about this one but having unluckily lost to City on penalties in the Communiity Shield I feel it would be a moral booster to get a win here and claim another trophy. With Chelsea losing 4-0 to United on Sunday Liverpool will be strong favourites. However, I watched the first hour of that game and Chelsea played quite well and were unlucky not to go into half time ahead. Having said that Zouma had a nightmare and if he plays tomorrow I'm sure we will be looking to exploit his area of the pitch. Lampard has his team playing out from the back and they are suseptable to being closed down by any well organised press, so if we get that part of our game right it should bring chances. As far as the team is concerned I would like to see Matip get a game even though I see Gomez as a starter for league games. I would also like to see Keita start to add a bit of attacking dynamism to midfield. Mane should replace Origi though no doubt Divock will get time as a sub.
I am not expecting a walk over but I do expect Liverpool to win.
