Great turnaround against Stoke thankfully and although the first 20 mins were not great and we were lucky not to be 2 down we recovered well to take a lead into HT which seemed to knock the stuffing out of Stoke, who had caused us problems.
Some good performances, particularly from the in-form Lallana & ManeÂ but great to see Firmino and especially Dan the Man getting on the score sheet as Sturridge coming into some scoring form could be our lethal weapon when Mane leaves for the African Cup.
Man City on New Years Eve brings a totallyÂ different threat and you just cannot see a scoreless draw here with both teams scoring but also conceding albeit our record against them has been decent in previous seasons so here’s hoping it continues!!
We will need to be at our best both in attack but even more so in defence as Aguero is a hard man to contain for 90+ mins.
I think Sturridge will play a big part in this game from the Bench and my prediction is a 3-1 win with Sturridge bagging the 3rd.
Here’s hoping we are celebrating on New Years Eve for the right reasons….C’MON THE REDS, make it a happy start to 2017!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR from the County Kildare Liverpool Supporters Club Committee
