View from the Opposition – Liverpool

A bit about you:

Name: Marc King

Current home town: Leicester

Birthplace: Birmingham

How long have you supported your team? 44 years

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: Atmosphere on a Champions league night and when we sing YNWA

Favourite match played by your team & why: Champions league final in 2005. Coming back from 3-0 against AC Milan to win

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: It’s a difficult one as there have been so many but I would possibly have to say Kenny Dalglish due to not only what he did for the team on the pitch but also what he did for the city following the Hillsborough tragedy.

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Roberto Firmino – Not only does he score goals but the amount of work he puts in off the ball is incredible – reminds me of a modern day Ian Rush 

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Mo Salah – his pace is electric and he has a knack of being in the right place at the right time when the ball is in the opposition box

Player in our squad you most fear and why? I would of said Jamie Vardy but he is not playing so I will go with James Maddison as he is still trying to impress the crowd

Up and coming prospect in your squad? I don’t think we have seen the best of Joe Gomez yet and I think he will have a strong season and will play for England on a regular basis

How do you think you’ll do against us? I think we will win 2-0

General Questions:

What did you think to the summer transfer activity both in and out of your club? The incomings have been superb and the one position that every Liverpool supporter wanted resolving was the Goalkeeper which seems to have been sorted once and for all

Where do you think you’ll finish this season?  Winners

Who do you think will win the league? Us

Which three teams do you think will get relegated from the Premiership? Huddesfield, Cardiff and West Ham

Any other comments? My wife and 2 boys are season ticket holders at LCFC wishing them well for the rest of the season but not for tomorrow..
