My Manc mate says they'd rather see us win the league than see City win the quadruple, as do most of their fans by now, apparently.

Problem is, they've gone shite right at the wrong moment. So even if they try and win this one now, I just can't see it happening.

Three of my best workmates support Everton, Arsenal and Yernited, naturally the Bitter Blue and Yinited supporters want Abu Dhabi PR to win out of spite, but the Arsenal fan wants us to win, simply because we're a proper club.

If we have to choose between CL or helping Utd win the league, I am certain what would be our priority. Not sure about Utd though ... the auld fans would go for CL but the more bitter youger set of fans would rather see their team slog in Europa as long Liverpool is denied the League

Not denying what you’re saying mate, but are there actually Yernited fans out there who would prefer a City title to them finishing top 4?

They are effectively wanting that to happen by hoping to lose to City, they are not in a strong enough position for top 4 if they keep dropping points.

Yeah, I'd never give up on the prospect of CL qualification to stop anyone winning the league. There might be a silver lining in losing (i.e. it stops a rival winning the league) but I'd never want my team to lose. I can't bring myself to do it. I think truly, that's one of the biggest things that makes us different from a lot of fans.

And other fans are so weird. I was watching the Palace v City game yesterday and what I found so odd was that City was 2-0 up, coasting and all I could hear was them singing their rip off version of Allez, Allez and the Gerrard song. And yesterday during our game, all we sang about was ourselves, our team and our players. I dunno, I can't think of a time I've seen us or heard us be that obsessed with another team.

It is something that makes me immensely proud to be a Liverpool fan.

Agree with your sentiments primarily, although we do like a good rousing version of "Fuck off Chelsea FC" whenever we play them. At least we're singing about the team we're actually playing at the time though.

They probably NEED to win all their remaining games to get top 4. Because they have to play Chelsea, if Chelsea win all 4 remaining games, Utd cannot top them. Same if Arsenal can manage to win their remaining 6 games, they cannot top them.

If United don’t get anything from the City game then don’t think they have any option but to beat Chelsea or they’ll probably be out of the running for 4th. That’s far from a guarantee.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has equalled David de Gea's single season Premier League clean sheet record of 18, and still has four games left in the season to top it.

The Brazilian goalkeeper equalled the record - also held by former Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart - after preventing Chelsea from scoring during Liverpool's 2-0 win over the Blues on Sunday at Anfield.

The clean sheet was not easy to come by though, with Alisson forced to save from close range a number of times as momentum switched after the home side had grabbed their second.

The record holder for the most clean sheets in a single Premier League season is Petr Cech's record of 24 in 38 games, while former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has the second best record, with 20.

1. PL final positions: 1st Liverpool, 2nd City, 3rd Arsenal, 4th Man U, 5th Spuds, 6th Chelsea
2. Chelsea win the Europa
3. Liverpool are playing Spurs in the CL final - who do you want to win?

Insane attitude to have, a game in hand is only a positive if you get points with it and they need to be ahead of more than just chelsea for a top 4 place.

It comes across as a rationalisation for them not being good enough and not going to get anything anyway, so with a bit of rotation they can try and claim they had some influence on the league.

He really isnt very bright. If Arsenal beat Palace and Wolves and Utd beat Everton and lose to City then they will be 5 points behind Arsenal come Wednesday night with 3 games to play.

They could be closer to Spurs but their last 4 games are at home against Brighton, West Ham and Everton and away to Bournemouth.

It's jam packed between 6th and 3rd.  Neville is gambling that the other teams will also drop points - probably Spurs to City - which will open the back door to 4th place for them.  The question is whether it's a gamble they can take.
