Premier League

Out of luck - Brendan Rodgers

Lady Luck is about to start paying it back.

First of all let us pay our respects to the families and friends of loved ones lost in the dreadful Hillsborough disaster.

I was driving from Leeds to Manchester at the time and I still recollect the mental imagery as the terrible disaster unfolded on the radio.



Out of luck - Brendan Rodgers

Lady Luck is about to start paying it back.

First of all let us pay our respects to the families and friends of loved ones lost in the dreadful Hillsborough disaster.

I was driving from Leeds to Manchester at the time and I still recollect the mental imagery as the terrible disaster unfolded on the radio.

Please, please, please, no awful chanting when match day comes.

Liverpool go into this game riding on the back of an excellent performance against Sunderland and will be steely confident for this game against their arch rivals.

Watching the game against Sunderland was simply a continuation of old woes. Hitting the post, the crossbar and generally doing their best NOT to score whilst conceding a goal to Sunderland's only worthwhile attack of the game.

The pain just seems to continue week after week.

Eventually the rot has to stop. It has to or a relegation scrap is on the cards with a toothless attack unable to penetrate even the weakest defences.

Against Man City Liverpool put in a great performance and gave away sloppy goals to give up two points. Against Sunderland they dominated the game and gave away a sloppy goal to concede two points.

Which of the following statements will be true on Sunday?

1. Against Man Utd Liverpool once again dominated possession on home turf but lost to a clinical finish from Van Persie who scored with his only real opportunity of the game.

2. Liverpool ran the midfield with both Shelvey and Allen putting in man of the match performances. Despite hitting the woodwork on no less than five separate occasions and missing a penalty they managed to lose to a superb individual effort from Danny Wellbeck.

3. Glen Johnson was the villain of the match as he allowed Fabio to ghost past him and cross for Scholes to hit the winner from the edge of the box.

4. Suarez and Borini finally find their shooting boots and put United to the sword.

You have to say that 4 is the most unlikely outcome. Liverpool just do not look like a team that has goals aplenty in them and that is because they don't.

If you could replace Suarez and Borini with Rush and Fowler then you would have a team capable of challenging for the top four places but without that goal threat they are horribly under strength.

There are positives to be taken into the game though and as fans we have to believe that energy, drive, commitment and home crowd support can make the difference.

Liverpool need a break. They are clearly on a long run of bad luck. Like a blackjack player experiencing a horrible run of cards the Reds have been on a downward spiral since beach ball gate.

What they need now is some luck to come to their rescue.

Of course I'm a firm believer that you make your own luck but sometimes you just need to clutch at straws and hope your flush draw comes in. Luck can turn very quickly and Liverpool's must be as far out with the tide as it can possibly be. One of these days Johnson is going to curl it in the top corner, Shelvey is going to start hitting the target and Downing is going to start looking like the player he should be.

Actually on that last note Downing actually looked like a player when he came on against Sunderland so let's hope the manager is sprinkling some magical stardust over him.

Sterling of course is the bright spot. Wouldn't it be wonderful if he could cap a great start to his premiership career by scoring against United.

This Liverpool team needs to start producing performances greater than the sum of its parts if we are to drag ourselves away from the bottom of the table and that means no silly mistakes at the back and finding the net at the front.

It's a tall order if you ask me and Lady Luck really needs to start showing that she is truly unbiased and begin to redress the balance for we are surely in plenty of credit with the old girl.

As with the game against Man City a point would be a good point against the potential league champions and stopping Van Persie would be a good starting point going into what is on paper an easier run of games than the horrendous opening fixture list we have been handed.

There have been some great games over the years and let's hope this is another one. Lucky Liverpool need to keep Van Persie out and get the rub of the green - something they simply haven't had for a long time now and it is due for payback.
