    I would say that we will miss Laporte & to a small extent Ederson and Zinchenko. I don' think we will miss Rodri, Silva or Sane. Maybe we miss them from their bench. I don't expect all to agree, but David Silva, Sane, or Rodri would not be in my first XI. Zinchenko would. Rodri will probably better in his 2nd season. At the moment he is a bt slow and I think it will take him a season. A bit like Jorginho at CFC (though that may also be down to Sarri / Lampard)

    Probably the best outcome we can hope for.

    Bravo aint a bad keeper but he puts the shits up our Defenders, especially Ota & Stones.

    Never usually back against us but all the momentum is with them.

    We have lost there with full strength sides, who knows we might get something.

    Edited for reality. Our defence is heading into a storm. The press from Liverpool will be immense. We just won’t be able to hold onto the ball enough to hurt them. It’ll be a miracle if we get something out of this. Even Peps not this good.

    Big test for Bravo but he will be desperate to prove a point.

    If our midfield and fullbacks/wingbacks can stifle the supply to their fullbacks I still think we can do this.

    Bravo

    Walker
    Fernandinho
    Stones

    Cancelo
    KDB
    Gundogan
    Bernardo
    Mendy

    Sterling
    Jesus

    Subs;
    Carson
    Otamendi
    Garcia
    Angelino
    Foden
    Mahrez
    Aguero

    I may get berated for this opinion but here goes:

    Surely, with a big game incoming at the weekend one that although early in the season could define it, you attempt to rotate in a competition where you are already as good as through? I understand that the Champions League is something we all want to win (just to shut uefa up) but playing that team on Wednesday night did not win us the game and resulted in us losing a player who is so crucial to the way we play.

    I can't understand why Bravo wasn't played in that game, i know you can't predict when injuries will happen but it was always a risk in my eyes didn't need to be taken. I think we will be beaten this weekend there isn't a team out there who can withstand so many injuries to so many crucial non-replaceable players, then again it is City were talking about.

    COME ON YOU BLUES.

    Take your point but in reality it's 4 of our starting XI, Zinchenko and Sane wouldn't be definite starters and if Sane was fit he would probably be playing in the Bundesliga this weekend.

    We've got a squad of players that every other team, apart from Liverpool, would die for. It's going to be tough but there is enough quality to get something from the game. Would I prefer for us to have a full squad, course I would, but I ain't giving up on these boys because of half a dozen injuries. We'll be up for the fight, without any doubt. I'm going full optimism, 2-1 to us.

    Suggest you watch the press conference.

    fast forward to 9.22 to see Guardian reporter ask Pep about conseuqences of losing. Then he asks about Claudio Bravo. Then someone follows it up and asks about tactical fouling. Seriously they have some cheek. Pep dealt with it very well. I don't think he always deals with the press too well, but today he was very good. Jamie Jackson should be embarrassed. Disrespecting our players. They are CHampions. What are you? Your living comes from their play. I wouldn't mind but as Karen wll confirm, JJ very often asks these types of questions. Link to press conference is in the Media Thread if you want it. Easy to find online.
