Ex-Gunner Nicholas SLAMS Liverpool after Bayern and predicts result for Fulham clash
Liverpool beat Bayern only thanks to Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk, Sky Sports pundit claims.
"A fantastic result in Munich could come at a cost," Charlie Nicholas told Sky Sports. "Yes, you’re in the draw and you deserve to be there, but it wasn’t a good performance. Bayern were terrible, Liverpool were just a shade better. Sadio Mane is the man, not Mohamed Salah or Roberto Firmino.
"Virgil van Dijk and Mane are the two getting them through this situation and I’m not convinced with their midfield either but I think Fulham are gone also [with Huddersfield]. There’s a bit of pride to be left, but I don’t know what Scott Parker can do to keep anything going. I’m expecting Salah to get back on the scoresheet this weekend.
"It eases the burden of the pressure [City not playing in the league this weekend] because they don’t look really nervous. They do get agitated and frustrated because when the front three are playing that well they need someone else to get them through.
"It has been Jurgen Klopp who has been getting caught up in the pressure of the situation but good coaches can ease the burden. I think it will be a fairly comfortable statement [by Liverpool] and it will be a statement of intent to say to Man City 'we’re not going away'."
Charlie's prediction: Fulham 0-3 Liverpool
