Liverpool: Fans respond to news that David Silva will miss clash with the Reds

Liverpool supporters are not convinced about the team news (via the Manchester Evening News) from Manchester City that David Silva will miss the tie against the Reds on Sunday due to injury, putting it down to “mind games”.

Are Liverpool in Pep Guardiola's head?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This comes after manager Pep Guardiola felt it was necessary to mention Jurgen Klopp’s side in his post-match interview after the Citizens beat Southampton 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

In particular, the Spaniard mentioned the Senegalese forward Sadio Mane, who scored a 94th-minute winner for Liverpool as they also beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Villa Park. He told BBC Sport, “sometimes it is diving, sometimes it is this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute.”

The injury to one of Guardiola’s key playmaker appears to be the second part of the mind games that the Spaniard is playing, according to the judgement of Liverpool fans.

One fan said that he fully expects Silva to start at Anfield on Sunday, while another said that a similar incident happened with their former captain Vincent Kompany but he still featured.

Here are some of the best responses from Liverpool fans:
