Now Jose do you sit back against man city, more than likely.
Or do you do the right thing and press them high up the pitch.

He'll sit back, he just doesn't trust his defenders, doesn't care about entertaining and will most likely never change his outlook.

Your midfield isn't mobile enough to press at a similar level as ours.

Think about it, Pogba? Mata?

What have we got to lose. We sit back and postpone city's title for another week by getting a draw.

Just let the rains off

We might get beat but at least make it harder for them to win.

Maybe learn a few things for next season.

Random Red, I think we have players such as Herrera, Lingard and Sanchez who can all comfortably press teams. Pogba in theory should easily be able to as well, he is quick and mobile. Martial, Rashford and even Lukaku are all mobile and quick enough to effectively press.

I agree there are some in our team that aren't suited to a pressing style, Matic, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata ect. However, we don't need to play those players, we have enough good quality players who can press a team. It's just a matter of our manager not wanting to.

Cities main defensive weapon is they have the ball for such long periods they rarely come under much pressure. I feel pep likes playing teams who sit back as it allows a massive possession advantage for his team . Jose is maybe the best at setting up to be hard to beat but it's still a style I think pep likes to play against . Klopp has not taken this approach now and in the past and had some success and pep is aware his team will press and attack and klopp seems the only coach who has been able to influence peps team selection, centre half at left back instead of a midfielder comfortable on the ball and Stirling removed for a more solid gundogan . I'd like to see us plant the seed we will attack them next season and make pep not know what to expect in future as he can have a really educated guess at the minute that we will sit back and let pep go with his plan A .

Just like in boxing styles make fights. Liverpool are all wrong for city. Unfortunately we are not we are like sitting ducks to them. Hopefully we give our all and try to win the game. Can’t ask for anymore than that as things currently stand.
