Friends Of Liverpool

Sunday’s crunch match at The Eastlands between Liverpool and Man City is a 6 pointer.
Make no mistake, fourth place is at stake here.
Whoever wins this game will be fourth in The Premier League and may very well stay there.
As it stands, the Blues are a solitary point ahead of us in fourth right now, a win will put them four points clear of us, still with a game in hand.
However, a win for Liverpool will put us two points above them again.
After last night’s laboured win in the Europa League against Unirea, Rafa and his team are now focused on Sunday’s crucial match and he said today in his press conference that Liverpool will be going all out for a win.
Truth is we really need to win this game, whereas Mancini’s men would be quite happy with a draw.
Carlos Teves is unavailable due to family matters while Patrick Viera is banned for a kick in the goulies to Stoke’s Glenn Whelan.
However they have Adebyor and former Red, Craig Bellamy to bring in.
But Mancini, being Italian, is a typically cautious coach. He has played with three defensive midfielders lately and will likely do the same against Liverpool on Sunday.
He will hope to stop Liverpool gaining control in midfield as we like to do and he will try to sneak a goal through Bellamy and Shaun Wright Phillips on the wings.
It will be a very tough game for us, but I am hoping for a win with that great man Gerrard to be back among the goals.
