Welcome to the latest  edition of First State Kopites. It’s episode 33 of season 3 – a podcast for Liverpool supporters in Delaware and friends of those Liverpool supporters. Thanks for listening on your preferred platform, we are available on ALL of them (and on YouTube).  

Joined by Daz and Haitham this week to reflect on a big week for our Champions League and Premier League ambitions.  

Let’s start with City:     

    Let’s get past their dodgy ethics (NIssan, never buying one of those cars) 2-2.      

    Being honest we could have lost this one.     

    xG looked quite close, and there were City offsides that didn’t seem to be called     

    City were 22-0-0 when leading. Not any more     

    We all know how much of let down dropping points at home can be.     

    NBC commentary – do they want a job in Abu Dhabi?  

Recap on Benfica:      

    Another terrible away performance      

    Luis Diaz      

    Everton in Europe  

Looking ahead – Benfica and City one more time…  

Other stuff:     

    Chelsea xG against Real Madrid, and Tuchel seems to have admitted defeat     

    Worst Man Utd player – Wan Bissaka or McTominay  

We’ll be back next week after the City FA Cup game. Thanks to Haitham and Daz – if you enjoyed the podcast, share it with a friend. Follow us on Twitter  – we only tweet and re-tweet from sources we think are credible.
