Don't put words into my mouth I didn't say that. What I said is Bravo had one of his typical headless chicken Bravo performances of old, instead of the more assured performances we have seen in the charity shield and league cup. Let's hope on Sunday it is the latter.
We rarely win at Anfield and regardless of this being a title battle, we've won 4 league titles without winning there so I don't see it as do or die. The onus is on the dippers to win, with our injuries. Their December is hectic and that could tell moving through the second half of the season. We've been poor in several games and to be 6pts behind after going to Anfield I would take that right now with some of the injuries and performances. That gap can quickly be shredded. It will not take long before the "this is our year" and "we will not bottle it this time" stories emerge, heaping more pressure on them and their problem has never been getting to the top of the table, it's been staying there.
They don't lose many at Anfield, it's been a long time since they last did in the league. City could have been the team to do it, but with the players out not many would give us a chance. And that is exactly why we will come away with the 3 points.
