Martin O'Neill--who was quick to add to the chorus of support along with Roberto Martinez and David Moyes after Wednesday's events--has acknowledged that Liverpool are still dangerous despite some growing pains, but seems optimistic about his club's chances today. "It's become our first home league fixture, and what a fixture. I'm looking forward to it and I'm sure the crowd are as well. I obviously want to see us attack, and I think we're capable of doing that now. I want to get the crowd excited with our play but I can't dismiss the most important issue of the lot, which is winning football matches."
