  1. i think liverpool will win but with all teams liverpool play that are considered so called lesser teams we seem to struggle against them for some reason i predict 2-0 with torres scoring on his game back if fit!!!

  2. We should beat them comfortably. I hope Torres will be back in attack & Keane will finally break his duck this time around!!!
