This is probably the biggest game of the season (Part 1) on Sunday between the top two teams fighting for the title and a must win game for us to increase the points score to 9. The team selection is going be a nightmare to find the right balance especially when it comes to midfield because they may use a 3-5-2 (due to defensive injuries) system against us. If Klopp goes for the 4-3-3 formation then they will have 2 extra midfielders more than us but their attack and defence will be short one in each area, so we can use this as an advantage in our favour.
Our recent victory over KRC Genk was very narrow and we had so many chances to make the score larger than 2-1 but they used a 3-5-2 system against us for which it almost worked for them but we held it out to win the game. So it’s possible Man City will use the same system. Past week Pep has been playing mind games related to Mane’s diving and I hope our Gaffer isn’t going to fall for this one.
I do worry about our defence because of we’re leaking goals easily and I think the last clean sheet was against Sheffield United which was sometime in September I won’t put Lovern in because he’s too slow when it comes to their pacey forwards and I’m not so sure about adding Henderson to the starting 11. We have to find the right balance between the defence and midfield. Here’s my line up for this game.
Arnold - Gomez - VVD - Robertson
Milner - Fabinho - Oxlade-Chamberlain
Mane - Firmino - Salah
This could be an open or cagey game between the two teams on Sunday and best of luck Redmen.
