Liverpool v Cardiff Sat 21 Dec
Man City v Liverpool Thu 26 Dec
Chelsea v Liverpool Sun 29 Dec
These are the games that we have got ahead of us before 2014, two away games to title chasing teams. Tough isn’t the word, so you can see why it’s such a defining moment for us. Win all three and we would more than likely end 2013 at the top and then I would start think that maybe, just maybe we can win the league!
DISCLAIMER – I AM NOT DELUDED, I WOULD BE OVER THE MOON WITH TOP 4 AND DON’T THINK WE ARE QUITE UP THERE JUST YET.
We have shown some weakness from time to time. We were rounded by Southampton and thrashed by Hull when they attacked us and didn’t let us get into our flow which has seen us batter teams, namely Norwich and recently Spurs (Sorry AVB!). We won’t have Sturridge for these games so we are heavily relying on Suarez. At the moment he is flying and carried us a bit, but if he was to have an off game then I worry about what could happen. Hendo, Coutinho and Flan have been very good so far but they don’t look quite ready to dictate the game like Suarez can do.
What I am hoping for as a good run would be beat Cardiff, draw city and draw Chelsea. That to me would be a cracking bunch of results. If we end up having a bad run with these 3 then we will have a right good scrap on our hands for that 4th spot.
Nervy times ahead
