Liverpool's Hope

City dealt Liverpool a massive blow in the title race and ended their hopes of topping Arsenal's Invincibles. No one can question the quality of Liverpool this season, but the main quality added to the team that appears to be the difference is the new man between the sticks, Alisson, as well as the Netherlands international, Van Dijk. Without these two in the picture, the back would be in complete shambles as was evident in previous seasons.

Kop supporters wanted to have their go at United after Solskjaer was brought in to finish out the season. The obvious hate for each other will always be there as they went straight away to, "so what, you've beat Cardiff 5-1". Have a look back to 27 October, Liverpool were screaming about as if they just won the league after beating Cardiff 4-1. Short memory that. 

Don't get me wrong, they finally have plenty to celebrate from their last good showing in 2005, but don't count your chickens til they hatch. 

Liverpool is away to Brighton on Saturday and the question is, will the loss to City in the league and the loss to Wolves in the cup prove to be the mid season slump that allows the title race be brought down to one game, or will those light the fire to see Liverpool punish Brighton? 

If Mo Salah can seem to get back to thinking about his finishing instead of falling at the touch of sun dress, he will be a bigger threat and Liverpool should come out on top. 

Have your say.
