Following his tearful carthasis at the end of Liverpool's 3-2 victory over Manchester City on Sunday, Steven Gerrard and the rest of his Liverpool team-mates are in attendance along with many others whose lives were forever changed by the tragic events of April 15th, 1989.
On this week's show we'll be taking a look at what could be a season-defining win for Liverpool, after they came out on top of a 3-2 Anfield thriller against Man City. Can they really win fourteen games in a row and take the league title, should an unfit Vincent Kompany have played, and what will Fergie make of all this as he sits in the Old Trafford Directors' box?
Credit Liverpool for the fantastic run of form they are currently in, sitting top of the Premier League with the destiny of the title in their own hands. In two weeks time however, that will all change because they know, you know and the rest of the world knows that if there is one team that can go to Anfield and beat them in their own backyard, it's Chelsea!

Yesterday was a horrible day. Not because my legs felt like they were made of concrete after a 10-mile run or because I started feeling the symptoms of man flu, but because despite forcing myself to support Manchester City for 90 minutes, all I was left with was a bitter taste in my mouth.
That taste quickly became nauseating once I realised just how close Liverpool are to win a first league title since 1990, barely 12 months after Fergie steered us to number 20 last season, before calling it a day and were they to win the league, it would be utterly devastating for a number of reasons: nobody saw it coming and media love-in with the scousers is already in full swing, even though they haven't won it yet.
Ahead of this past weekends games, Manuel Pellegrini aimed a dig at Chelsea and Jose Mourinho about our style of play. It's funny though because now, a couple of days later, Manchester City seem to have let the title slip from their grasp!
Before I go on to give my view on here, this is what Pellegrini said when he spoke about the title race.
