Just my two cents, man. And I did say arguably, so you're welcome to your opinion.
But since he came to Liverpool their defense has turned from bang average to good. At least better than ours has been this season(and I'd say the past season as well). And I doubt anyone here believes that's Lovren's achievement.
Plus, if you watched Netherlands' games in the Nations League, Van Dijk is a pretty big factor(possibly the biggest) into Netherlands' recent uprising. They're not excellent, but they're solid. And this is quite something to say about possibly the worst generation Netherlands ever had.

And he nullified Insigne and Mertens in the last group match. Then again there's Ancelotti lol

We're probably gonna play the same game Napoli did at Anfield. I'm frankly a bit more relieved that he's not the one our strikers will face when we'll counter.

I'm not worried about their defense, i'm worried for their attack.

How in the World Kimmich,Alaba,Hummels,Boateng,Süle can stop their attack ? Even Shaq is playing like a WC player these days.

We have to cut their long passes.... and cut their supply to Mane Salah Firmino...

And against their rookie LB I want Robben to be fit..

It's not like they went against any great defenses though. Napoli's? pft. Against PSG they didn't do much. And the little they did in the first match was thanks to Bernat. And it's not like when someone says "best defenders in the world" anyone thinks about Kimpembe and Thiago Silva.

I agree with that. We definitely have an advantage with our fixture list. The Christmas schedule is horrible in England and clubs always lose players into injury. I'd rather meet Liverpool in February after a difficult fixture list then in April when they've had more time to rest.

Liverpool also have van Dijk suspended for the first game and that's a huge loss for them.

Neither of any Bayern defenders these days.

The best thing about the draw is to see how some people went from - "We don't need James at all, he can leave in the summer." to " With James back in the team - we have a chance !."

Pathetic. And they were calling that the only "real" fans are from Germany. Learn the club colours first.

Well they are bossing the Premier League, but their CL so far isn't something to be proud of at all, they lost against Red Star Belgrade 2:0, and also lost to Napoli and PSG once . Who knows, we need Robben on the pitch and Ribery on the bench for this match, i wonder how we will play without Müller against Liverpool.

Now that I think about it, I can't really say we're the favourites against Tottenham. It's a very, very close tie, probably a coin toss. They've got 39 points in the league, third place and just 5-6 points behind Liverpool and City who are breaking historic records this season. Tottenham are very strong.

Wow, that was tough. At one point we had about 65% chance of meeting Roma, then we ended up with Liverpool.

Before the draw, Liverpool was the ONLY potential opponent that was rated as having a higher chance of winning the CL than us.

Not only that, but their style really hurts us, specifically the pace in their attack. Plus Klopp knows us all too well, especially Hummels and Lewandowski.

There was only one opponent I was scared of, and we got 'em.

So for the first time this season (yes, #12, you read that right), we will play matches where we are not BOOKMAKER favourites to win.
