I guess both City and ourselves very much were thinking about this game given the weekends results, how City lost that game is a mystery and as for our result in the derby, well, at least we got a point despite it being a really bad performance, anyway, onto this massive game for both clubs.
From what i can gather we should be at full strenght with Salah and Robertson seemingly winning their fitness battles and should be available. Obviously no Hendo as he's banned, not sure on the fitness of Can but if available will most probably start but who with. Milner was excellent in the first leg as was Wijnaldum but then so was Chamberlain, not sure if Milner can play 3 games in a week so our midfield could be Can, Chamberlain and Wijnaldum, we know the front 3 of course, the team might look like this,
Arnold Lovren VVD Robertson
Chamberlain Milner Wijnaldum
Salah Firmino Mane
Like i said, not sure about Can's fitness but i think the team will be pretty close to this. We've got one foot in the semi final, now for another top performance to get there, i feel we'll score and that could very well be that but we know how good city can be on their day, they have home advantage with the crowd behind them, an early goal from them will fire them up and make for a horribly nervous night for us, hopefully it's us with the early goal, very best of luck RedMen.
