I’d take De Bruyne and Sane in an instant.

Looking at the city players lining up for the game at ours my other half asked me if I liked any of the city players and he was the only one I'd have. Great player and not a nob like the rest of them. They really struggle without him. He has a soft spot for us so you never know.

De Bruyne is great - has a proper old school mentality about him. Very endearing. Strikes the ball as sweetly as any I’ve seen too. Not sure City suffer that much without him though - they seem to have been a bit ropier in some respect with him in the team this year? He seems a little bit slow across the ground sometimes for such an expansive side when they are out of possession especially. Would be perfect as the most forward player in our midfield though.

What a fucking player this guy is 

Lovely compilation, that. Every time he does the DM thing, he doesn't just stop the opponent, but he either comes away with the ball or finds a teammate. And those chipped forward passes are a bit special, too.

I think there are probably a few question marks surrounding De Bruyne's fitness given the amount of injuries he seems to have had in recent times. I do like him as a player,a lot,and it was obvious to see that when he played in the Bundesliga that he was destined for bigger and better things.

Bar when they have defenders injured, City don't really miss anybody when they're out. They have a high level alternative for every midfielder and attacker. 

 

Racism incident aside, if we could have one player from them, I'd have Bernardo Silva. He really reminds me of Iniesta.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! Sounding like he's out for between 4 to 6 weeks, smack bang in the middle of a busy period. Fan- fucking-tastic, not!

Fuck sake, this would be a monumental disaster.

Major blow if this is the case, and could not have happened at a worse time.

Well, before the city game would have been slightly worse, but otherwise, yea, shite.

It's a medium term injury to a player in a position where we actually have a fair amount of depth. If it's a monumental disaster that Fabinho is out for about a month then we're a lot worse than we seem.

Big big blow, but I think we can get by without him. He’s absolutely outstanding and one of first names on the teamsheet but we have been an absolutely fantastic team 15 months before he was fully integrated into the side. 
 

Have to be looking at Gini most likely to fill in in the 6, Henderson did a good job there before Fab but I think Gini’s more tactically astute, so looking at midfield of Gini, Henderson, Ox and try get Naby up to speed. We have Milner, Shaq and Lallana to fill in too.

So long as he's back early January. The game I'm worried about is Salzburg, that's a massive blow. Other than that away at Leicester is big.

Trying to look on the bright side.

 

It's a busy period so he's likely to miss alot of games, but the actual teams we play aren't anything to sweat over, between now and boxing day when we play Leicester the highest placed team we play is Bournemouth in 11th. 

 

As long as he's fit for the end of December-beginning of January then we'll be sound without him. 

 

A few of the hysterical fannies on here wrote our season off after Alisson got injured on day one, and we ended up winning every game while he was out.

We are going to get injuries. We need to be able to cope. Gini is good in there and it gives a chance for Keita or Ox to properly stake a claim to a regular spot.

We played without him for the majority of the first half of last season and still won nearly every game. Easier run of fixtures is helpful. Let's not all get hysterical fannyitis till we see his results, but even if they are worst case, we've plenty of good players in there to cope.

We are conceding goals with him in the team and look a bit out of sorts going forward. Maybe a slight shift and Ox coming in might get us going with the extra runner from midfield. If we had won against Napoli I'd be aloy more comfortablr with just the Leicester game

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
