I think we need to have a bit of perspective here though and not build them up as if they are some sort of leviathan. If Sturridge or Suarez are poor they don't have a lot else going for them. Our defence and midfield are better than there's and Lukaku could be the difference this time round.
If fans and players go into this with the same old defeatist attitude we will get what we deserve. A new manager, a new approach a win is well within us.
Your asking a lot for suarez and sturridge to be poor, they are consistent as anything just now. But its not just them, they have coutinho back, Henderson seems to be performing reasonably well and then there is gerrard, if he turns up like he often does in derbies he will cause us issues. I'm sure come matchday hysteria and bravado will take over and ill be shouting about how we will smash em but just now I'm not feeling good about it, and that feeling has 2 long weeks to fester.
With a bit of luck suarez will snap his Achilles on international duty.
