    Everybody keep saying Liverpool wins is by luck, who is stopping the rest of the teams from being lucky. In my opinion Liverpool played very well against MU, but MU pride is to play with all the strength against rivals and go on loss all other matches. Look how they played against Chelsea with pride, but wait and see how they will play Mcity they will let Mcity screw them easily. But no worries we got this, Ynwa

    I dont know if that is totally fair, liverpool definitely played badly and united were for sure up for it and played well, but i think in that last 30 minutes liverpool picked themselves up and fought for the draw. If the match had gone on 10 more minutes liverpool would've gotten a second goal

    Honestly I expect us to bottle it; you can say I’m being a downer but when you’re 27 and you’ve seen the sun rise everyday you begin to count on it. If we do win the league I’ll be pleasantly surprised then

    It's funny how Liverpool hasn't even lost yet in the League and they're worried about them not winning. I'm not a Liverpool fan but this is ridiculous. They are still 6 points ahead and yea it's a long season so why even worrying now.

    As a utd fan amd after watching the game sunday I am convinced man city will win the league comfortably even tho they are behind now.

  • Memory Machingambi

    Nicol hit the nail on the head. Depth (or lack thereof) will cost Liverpool again. The way these pundits are going on 9 games in you’d think they’ve forgotten last year - city made up a 10 point gap with way fewer games to go. Both teams are a hair below what they were last season but I think city has the easier fix coz their issues are tied directly to losing Laporte whereas with Liverpool, no one seems to know exactly why they’ve dropped off. Liverpool were lucky to beat Leicester the other day, Southampton a few weeks back and now the fortunate draw at Utd. I’m not putting my money on Liverpool just yet

    "Liverpool legend Steve Nicol".... oh my god, really? He is a legend? Nobody, literally nobody would ever remember this "legend" playing there if he wasn't still appearing in tv. There are at least 200 better players in history of this club.

    • rrradodddupa

      @• Haze • Appearances don't make legends grandpa. To be a legend you have to be great player. Jamie Carragher player over 500 games and he was very average defender. To people like you there are 100 so called legends in every club, to me there are only few. You are one of those people who are calling Gary Neville United legend or great player, I'm not. Steve Nicol is from the same category of players.

    • • Haze •

      Nearly 500 appearances in the great team of the 80s with 5 league titles, an FA cup and a European cup. So yes an absolute fucking legend.
      The only people who won’t remember are those who think football started in 1992, glory hunters or still have their mothers milk wet around their mouth. Which one are you?

    That's interesting. I remember watching Liverpool in the 80s with Steve in the team. It was a great team but we always struggled against United. It's nothing new. These games are always close.

    I have been Liverpool fan long enough (a quarter century and counting) to know that a draw is most likely result, a win is fabulous.
    For ManU players, Liverpool at home match is always treated like a cup final.
    So not surprised at all

  • Basilio from Panama

    this is stupid analysis... there is rivalry between Man Utd and Liverpool, that being said even if a team loses all its games and are playing a top side they still beat them

  • THE WATERSHED

    City are Levels above Liverpool. A lot of these fine margins that have been going in Liverpool's favour and contributed to their 17 game winning streak until Sunday, will start going against them and City will eventually finish above them by 4 points. City will do the double over Liverpool.

  • David Cripps
    David Cripps Month ago

    As usual, an over reaction, but then they're paid to come up with opinions. This is the same team that lost by one point last year and won the Champions League. They're good enough to win both this year but it always takes luck AND talent Don't forget, Keita and the Ox are working their way back in, too.. It's only October, anything can happen. It might even end up involving more than Manchester City and Liverpool. Feb/March, that's when you can start to make predictions or panic. I agree, though, Liverpool thought they had this game in the bag. Just goes to show how small the differences between teams really are. Maybe it'll end up being a useful reminder.

      @Huzik 123 We don't need Salah to score against utd when our bench player Shaqiri can score. Btw, when's the open top bus parade for the point against the Champions of Europe?

    Wijnaldom said they can stay unbeaten all season, that's what happened, they became kocky, so now they will start to lose points. It's not like they played so good this season, they had luck ehich is part of football, but atleast say yoy stay unbeaten only after you play amazingly

    Liverpool will win the league if their injury luck carries on...Salah misses one game and Nicol is panicking...haha!!. City have missed key players for long periods such as Sane, KDB, Laporte and Mendy. What would Liverpool do without Mane, Salah, VVD and Robertson for several months.

    Idiots that thought Liverpool would be ok selling Salah as long as they keep Mane and Firmino! Salah is vital even when he doesn’t score or play particularly well. It’s his presence and runs that make other teams keep eyes on him at all times that creates space for others.

    I hate these titles so much. For the love of Christ it's October. They're acting like there are 2 games left in the season. In reality we're not even done with half. For all we know Liverpool and Manchester City are gonna get relegated, Watford is gonna win the Premier League and Slavia Prague is gonna win the UCL by beating a 22 men combined team of Juventus and Barcelona.
