That was vey poor. Emre Can is going backwards at a rate of knots. No pace, no spark, no urgency. That was reminiscent of a performance for Rodgers' last days.

He's never been blessed with a ton pace of but he's certainly looked slow and sluggish recently. Was he injured for a while?

He was, but he's been back for six or seven weeks.

Sky hyping Sundays game to its max. Another boring 0-0 on the cards which will probably suit Liverpool more.

Liverpool have been poor and unimaginative in the last 3 games now. Sunderland, Plymouth and Southampton. If they are similar on Sunday, they'll lose at least 2-0.

Near full strength United were far from great against a injury hit hull side in poor form on Tuesday night. And United have already dropped points this season at home to the likes of Stoke and Burnley.

I think Sundays game has a draw written all over it. Hopefully it's a decent game though with a few goals and not another borefest like the Anfield meeting in mid October.

Any thoughts on team for Sunday?
I would go with something like this

              Mignolet

Clyne  Lovren  Matip  Milner

 Wijnaldum        Henderson
             Coutinho

    Lallana          Firmino
               Origi

Origi ahead of Sturridge and Can on the bench too

I definitely think the shape and pace is a lot better with Lallana as that advanced midfielder and with Coutinho on the left. You can't have Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum as they are too static. (even more so when Lucas is there instead of Henderson).

I'd go with

                                Mignolet

Clyne            Lovren              Matip                Milner

                      Wijnaldum     Henderson
                               
                                    Lallana

Firmino                                                         Coutinho

                                    Sturridge

You must be confident Seanie? United going very well, playing decent football, scoring a few, tight at the back; Liverpool in a bit of a slump, showing a bit of weariness.

Actually almost reverse roles from build-up to Anfield game, although Liverpool are not capable of parking the bus with the robustness United showed that night.

                                    Sturridge

Yeah, i think thats the best team available with Mane away, although i wouldnt be that surprised to see Origi get the nod ahead of Sturridge
I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

Origi may have shit the bed against Plymouth. Sturridge scored against Sunderland before he pulled his headstring, so that might get him a start.
