Last minute match post for this one sorry.

Just looked at the team & bench, one of the strongest we’ve had for a long time in my opinion. Not a single weak link in the starting 11.

Hopeful of a win today, just hope I’ve not cursed things! Hope everyone is well here ok Kopfans, enjoy the game.

Boats was actually just offside when he earned this corner. So I knew they’d score on the corner

First 15 done and their passing is looking so much crisper than ours, making us look slower than them.
Time to get Mane the ball and let him be direct to change up the pace of the game

Halftime.
Truthfully the good news is that we are only down 1-0, as they’ve split our defense for a header a few times.
Marius hasn’t look impressive in the slightest.
Took us another half hour after their goal to start to get a foothold.
We need to pick up the pace and get them unsettled in the first ten minutes.

Frustrated first half and their set piece goal should have never stood and we should have done better with the defending.

Firmino scores the equalizer 1-1

Wow Karius, it’s tough to believe but today you have looked less commanding of your box than mignolet does.
Do we need a new goalkeeper coach???

Painful to watch at times. Shaky on the corner and Karius looks less commanding of his area than Mignolet does.
But we played like **** for a majority of the minutes of the match, and somehow still took 3 points. That fares well for us looking at our team makeup.
Now off to the international break and NO injuries

Hope Lallana’s injury isn’t serious and it’s 3 pts in the bag. Still waiting for the first clean sheet of the season!

I’m hoping it’s serious enough to keep him at Melwood and not away on England duty, but nothing serious that he isn’t 100% ready for Man U

That’s how it’s done… grind out a positive result and thanks to Mr. Dependable Milner for slotting his fourth penalty of the season. This win puts us into second place of the PL for at least 24 hours… depends on other games tomorrow and we could be still there when our next stop is at Anfield October 17th Monday night against manure.

Didn’t have the feeling like a game we would’ve lost the last three years?
Part of it down to our resilience and quality now, partly to their wastefulness of some great chances.
Either way, at the end of the season HOW the game went matters not, just who took the points.
Good job lads

I think we knew we would come out far better in the 2nd half, first half was awful and now a bloody international break to upset our rythem.

Well, it is an improvement I suppose – we usually go to struggling teams, play awful and lose the game. Now we just lose the first half. I bet Klopp had a face like thunder at halftime.

We have to be fair to Karius, he’s still adjusting, but there is an argument that Mignolet should play against United as he’s used to those particularly pressured occasions and he hasn’t exactly been playing badly.

There are those who’ll say the best transfer deal we’ve done was for Coutinho or Mane. I disagree. Considering Milner came on a free we got an absolute bargain. When I heard he’d be playing left back this season I thought it’d be a makeshift measure but he’s been so influential he’s completely owned the position. Neither did I think we find a player so cool at penalties after Gerrard left. It just goes to show it’s worth keeping an open mind.

Yes, Milner had a shaky start to his Liverpool career but he’s become Mr Dependable whatever position he plays and his coolness from the spot had been crucial this season.

I couldn’t believe he waited for the keeper to move and then just chipped the ball down the middle. Considering that penalty was to take the lead Milner must have nerves of steel, certainly stronger nerves than I had watching.

He’s becoming the stud, and doing it in the most unusual of ways, which makes it even better

lanoisseforp

Shh don’t let Klopp know that Milly is the stud 😀

For sure Milner has the nerves of steel when it comes to taking penalties… I nominate him to be our penalty taker for the rest of the season as it comes.

Play like **** for 2/3 of the match and find a way to win on the road.
So much better than dominating and then having the manager come out after a draw (or even loss) and saying we should’ve scored 6 (like Moaninho said today )

I don’t listen to moaners BS these days and good luck with his manure parking the bus when they come to Anfield soon… I hope we’ll batter them this time. F******!

I wished we signed Milner during Rafa’s tenure at the time because Rafa saw a workhorse in this fella just like how he saw with Kuyt. I know Rafa wanted to sign Milner but I can’t remember how the transfer failed in the end…will someone enlighten me with this?

KLOPPite

I don’t see how Milner would’ve found any playing time under Rafa with Gerrard, Alonso and Mascherano in the midfield. I’m guessing Milner thought the same thing and looked elsewhere where he could playing time.

Huytonian
Member

He wouldn’t have replaced Gerrard, Alonzo or Mascherano but he could have competed with Kuyt or played left midfield, a position where we had problems except for a short time when Yossi hit top form. I was sorry we didn’t sigh him years ago.

KLOPPite

But I don’t think he wanted to play out wide but rather Central which he saw those three and knew he wasn’t going to displace them

It’s funny, you can have a player arrive at a club and if it’s not the right time they can bomb whereas if they were to arrive at another time they would fly. I agree it would’ve been hard for Milner to get into one of Rafa’s sides but at that time Milner’s qualities weren’t highly in demand. Fast forward to Klopp’s era and if you’re a player with drive, stamina, versatility, winning experience and very good distribution you’re going to be in demand. Milner’s flying because, almost by luck, he finds himself a round peg in a round hole at the right time. Benteke, for example, was a perfectly good player but he was a square peg in a round hole at the wrong time.
