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?
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.”
David Silva fit to start on Sunday then… https://t.co/rAzSZeD2kF

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:

remember when they said that about kompany and he played

Probably mind games

Pep must really be desperate to start this early. Nothing wrong with Silva that a miraculous recovery won’t cure.

Never trust him

Klopp needs to make plans to man mark David Silva just in case
