Difficult challenge tomorrow! Of course our away form will fill most of the discussions. But i hope the challenge of playing a Big, football playing side will motivate the team and produce a performance deserving of our support.
Our Uefa form does not seem to translate across to league form. The midweek game wasn't the best performance, but certainly an improvement on what we have produced this year. We were still calamitous at the back and failed to capitalise in the final third.
SWP is suspended for some bizarre reason, but Richard Dunne returns. So i am hoping Hughes will either give a chance to Felipe Caicedo upfront or see Zabaleta move to the right wing, which he has played before. Kompany retains his midweek role in the midfield and Dunne returns to the defence.
This is a game that we shouldn't expect anything from, that's why i am hoping we can pull something out of the bag. We have a horrible record Vs Liverpool. The Fink Tank predicts only 12.1% chance of winning and only 19.2% of a draw. Not a promising statistic.
Highest odds on a 2-0 loss. I hope otherwise!
