One of the most difficult fixtures of the season. Going to Anfield and play Liverpool is no walk in the park, and we have no real hopes of anything, a draw being a dream result.
The team had little or no momentum going into the game vs. Newcastle and struggled to get anything out of a possession of 60% against a team that has a drilled system and players with huge winning instinct.
Bredan Rodgers made a decission to bring in the players for an extra session, and also to address the situation and the errors done in the match vs. Newcastle. The back four struggled, despite being the same that played together against MK Dons, though a totally differet opponent.
As we have said before no great hope of anything going to Anfield, but of course miracles can happen as we did see in 1981, when Leicester defeated Liverpool at Anfield, 2-1. Jim Melrose and Pat Byrne scored the goals for Leicester.

Liverpool Football Club is a professional football club based in Liverpool, England. The club competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football. Founded in 1892, the club joined the Football League the following year and has played its home games at Anfield since its formation. Domestically, the club has won 19 League titles, eight FA Cups, a record nine League Cups and 16 FA Community Shields. In international competitions, the club has won six European Cups, three UEFA Cups, four UEFA Super Cups—all English records—and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool won two further European Cups in 2005 and 2019 under the management of Rafael Benítez and Jürgen Klopp, respectively; the latter led Liverpool to a 19th League title in 2020, the club’s first during the Premier League era, read more
A very clean and understated design in red without any graphics or trim, with just the logos being colored in white/beige. The main color of the Nike Liverpool 2022-2023 shirt is slightly darker than in the current season, which works well with the overall aesthetic. On the back under the collar is the Hillsborough insignia, which was updated to include the number 97 in recognition of Andrew Stanley Devine. A subtle bespoke detail can be seen on the sleeve cuffs – they feature a YNWA graphic pattern.
The authentic 22-23 Nike jerseys feature a new knit pattern. All other tech and material, including Dri-Fit ADV, seem to be identical. Nike combine the Liverpool 2022-23 home jersey with red shorts and socks.
