Ah the scousers. More histrionics than history these days to be sure. The people's champions of 2 seasons ago, who slipped up when it was theirs for the taking. That's gotta smart!

It's strange talking to scouse fans. We have so much in common with our mutual loathing of that team from Stretford, yet we are miles apart when it comes to our view of football in general. To many Liverpool fans, Manchester City are an affront to their very being. This team that has only existed since 2008 surely cannot be allowed to rob Liverpool of their rightful place at the top table of football, can they? They've won everything in the past, therefore they deserve to win everything in the future! How dare this upstart team from Manchester spend money on decent players in order to win things, when that is the preserve of a handful of select clubs who happened to have the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time - and don't mention the wealthy owners that propelled them to their success, it is only City who buy football.

In years to come, psychologist will look back at Liverpool FC (and their seemingly limitless old boy network in the media) as a classic case of mass delusion. Virtually everyone outside the club can see that they are no longer a big club, and their protestations are merely a self affirmation in the echo chamber of Anfield. A succession of mediocre managers (the jury is still out on Klopp, but he hasn't set the world on fire just yet, has he), bizarre owners, poor transfers and scandals has turned Liverpool into also-rans, and they look a team in a tailspin into terminal mediocrity.

Yes, they will always have their history and the tales of glories past to keep them warm, but looking back means their fans simply can't see what's coming towards them.

I'd almost feel sorry for them if they weren't so utterly scornful of the club I support.

Anyhow, on to the game. The international break was a godsend for us, as the likes of Aguero, Silva and Zabaleta are all nearing full fitness and may play some part in this game. We haven't done too badly without them, but City will always look a more dangerous team with Sergio leading our attack than the (thus far) uninspiring Bony, and the unproven Kelechi. We haven't exactly struggled to create without Silva, but having him back is something that will have opposition managers and defenders sweating.

Liverpool could have former City bighead (CITY NEVER PRODUCE ANY PLAYERS FROM THEIR ACADEMY) and perennial sicknote Daniel Sturridge back for this game, which is good for them - much as I dislike the guy, he's a threat. Of course, all eyes will be on the return of two old boys - Sterling and Milner swapped places in the summer, and although the price tags were somewhat different, I know who I think got the better deal - and it wasn't the Scousers. We should be treated to some good comedy as the visitors hurl constant abuse at Raheem - meanwhile, Milner will more than likely be warmly applauded by the City faithful, despite the suspicions of many that he left us for more money!

Despite my scorn for Liverpool FC, they have always been a tricky team to face. They will certainly be "up for it", and our players will not be able to give less than one hundred percent. Liverpool are currently in mid table, and have a -1 goal difference, so 3 points is emminently possible!

Sorry for the stream of consciousness intro BTW, got a hangover and can't concentrate!

The questions:

Guess the attendance:

Predict the time of the first goal:

Name the first goal scorer:

Predict the correct goalscorer:

No bonus question this week - have some sympathy for the hangover eh?!

Happy predicting!
