I am Man united fan. I wanted Liverpool to lose but after he scored the goal, i stood up and clapped. Who wouldn’t unless you are enemy of football. It was one of those moments that you forget about rivalry and enjoy wonderful moments of football

After losing VVD since October, Gomez since November, Matip since January, Thiago out for 3 months early in the season, Jota was firing on all cylinders and we lose him for 3 months (and again now for 3 games to end the season) and Henderson since February. With all the chopping and changing, even the CBs we bought in January are now injured for what looks like will be the remainder of this season, it’s absolutely insane given all that that Liverpool are still in for a shout at top 4 AND could even possibly finish 3rd still. Just madness. Key is to just go out and get the results now against Burnley and Palace, nothing more we can do.

Now that we are in the driving sit, winning the last 2 games will most probably get us qualify for the ucl. If we don't than we do not deserve to qualify for the ucl because if we can't beat teams like burnley and palace then we will probably not able to win the ucl cup anyway. But I believe we can do it.

LFC get so much possession in games. They really work hard... their efforts are just being continuously clouded by the poor finishing of Mane and Firmino. Apart from the two kids playing center back those two forwards guys are a real problem for Liverpool at the moment. They been costing Liverpool games this season with them missing almost everything. LFC would kill games if only those two could just convert them chances! They really holding LFC back while the team is so depleted with injuries as well

Stevie is being realistic, we need to beat 2 teams who will play a low block! Liverpool have struggled to score against low blocks all season, plus the cb’s are championship level. It’s far from sealed yet.

rollercoaster478:
Jota's injury has me worrying, because he is such a driving force of attack, and he actually finishes his chances more often than Mane and Firmino combined. So yeah I am worried still. Nervous. But we can do it, it is very much possible. The last two games wont be easy though.
Jesse Paiz
Jesse Paiz:
Liverpool are actually in a solid spot. There essentially 3 points out of 3rd with 3rd and 4th playing eachother. They win their last 2 games, and chelsea lose they are in. They win both games and Leicester lose it comes down to goal difference, with a liverpool having at least a two goal advantage.

Chelsea lost to Arsenal, and lost to Leicester City. Confidence is dented and heading into a match vs the team they just lost to in the cup final. Chelsea could bottle top 4 and Tuchel would look like from an hero to a bottler within the blink of an eye.

in all fairness, shaka was more happy for us than nicol. the biggest doubter of liverpool is surprisingly a liverpool legend but it seems like hes unhappy because his predictions of liverpool of not making to the top four is looking unlikely.

3 Chelsea 70 pts 4 Liverpool 69 and 5 Leicester 67. I think Foxes will bottle it yet again in the very end as they always do late in the season by losing to Chelsea and only drawing against Spurs. Blues and Reds will win out and make the top 4. Of course there's a small chance I'm wrong.

Steve simply doesn't have Liverpool blood flowing in his vein otherwise he'll believe in them. All his predictions against Liverpool have failed. He should learn from Don Hutchinson whom they've all made a laughing stock due to his believe in Liverpool's top4 possibility.

Paul Rose
Paul Rose:
Hislop: Nothing about Liverpool's football says Top 4. Over 70% possession and 26 shots in the game. That says top 4. We have Mane low on confidence, teams set up to low block, and teams set up to exploit the weakness at the back where we have a player who got promotion to the Bundesliga 1 with Stuttgart and another who only played non league football before September and debuted in the Premier League in December. I think a lot about LFC tells you how good the side is. Also the run of results is littered with draws where wasteful shooting and good keeping have been more influential or as influential as defensive frailties, post West Brom at the tag end of December. A lot of the draws could easily have been won by 3 goals, undone by 1 mistake. That's football. You just have to keep faith in what you are doing and working hard.
