My thoughts...I can't see why we'd slip up - we've proven we're very capable of grinding out a result, or indeed, popping a few goals in if we can. 3 points more, for me.
Jeez Flip, you better have one hungry cat on Saturday afternoon!

Oh come on, how is it unrelated? You are talking about Liverpool maintaining their title challenge by not losing a game\dropping points and using the word slip, that's just asking for trouble surely? biggrin
When I read it I thought he had put it in jest tbh - it was obvious it would be brought up
In all honesty I really don't think about that at all - it's in the past. Funny for everyone else at the time, no doubt - but not something I give any thought to. Kinda wish I'd meant it now. Dang... hehe

Funnily enough it was the Palace game that cost us the title that year IMHO, Not Stevies Slip.

(Hence why I am nervous about this weekend.)

Gerrard

wink
I often wondered if the forum had some macro set up to post about Gerrard whenever anyone mentions the word "slip" in any unrelated context...
It's one of the stock responses. Was it the pivotal issue? As discussed, Henderson's absence was arguably the most critical factor.

Either way, until it's won then nothing is certain. And Palace, like all Prem teams, are perfectly capable of pissing on chips.

Nah, it was the Chelsea game that lost us thew title... Palace game was irrelevant as even if we won every game, we still needed City to drop points.

Palace are definitely one of those possible banana skin teams but you are at home so shouldn't be too much of an issue really. An away fixture would definitely be more nerve racking.

ALex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to be back in training next month.


April I bet before we see him, great to see ahead of schedule though.

Recognition of his progression. Great to see.

The really cool fact in that article (to me) was this:

"Most importantly, when fit, Liverpool’s first choice back four is young enough to stay together for the long-term. Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gomez are still in their early 20s. At 27, Virgil van Dijk appears a senior figure in comparison. The meanest defence in this season’s Premier League will be alongside each other for at least the next five years and most likely beyond, fitness and form permitting."

Alisson behind them is only 26. The future could be very bright.
