Chelsea sneak through 4-3
Maybe Sepp Van Den Berg can beat LFC with a header. Apparently, the team has agreed he can play despite being on loan.Still blown away that Liverpool didn't draw Pep Guardiola's 2010-2011 Barca squad. I thought they were contractually obligated to play top teams in early rounds.
it just feels like Pep has been grooming Foden to take that striker spot for a while nowMahrez and Sterling have been so off form that any match they start is liable to end without a goal. City also had 25 shots and 23 chances.
I agree though that not getting a striker may cost City like this 4 or 5 times this season and that could be the difference in a title race. Glad it happened in the cup and not a league match.
