Mr men have created a new character mr sitter played by mr adam lallana! Will take the point a decent away performance against a top team. Gini and emre were fantastic today. Still waiting for firmino couts nd mane to start gelling again like start of season. Well done redmen YNWA.

Emre was a complete monster in midfield last night. Wij is showing why Klopp paid what he paid to get him. He has improved us massively. He like Mane and Matip, are the types of players we need as in, the RIGHT players that fit the way Klopp plays with the ability to improve us as a team and squad. By contrast, City have spent 200m on CB's alone over the past 2 years and they are all woeful. There lies the difference.

Can for me was the standout player today . Hopefully his calf problem is over and we get to see more of the marauding physical displays like today.
I know that a lot won't agree with me but I thought Mane was poor in the second half He looked sluggish in body and speed of mind. There were at least 3 instances where he dithered for a second, taking a second touch instead of processing the ball to a team mate.
Apparently he was noticed at Southampton for going missing in some games. But I reckon the high pace game and the African cup of nations is taking its toll.
After all the slating Milner has taken on these pages this past few weeks, I would like to ask his critics have they ever seen a better penalty converted under hostile pressure from the fans of his ex club.
I don't think I can name another player who I would have preferred to take the spot kick.
If we can get a top centre half at summer then we would not be far away.

Yeah got to agree Dermot, Mane was really poor in the second half at anything that required precision and quick thinking. The touch he had at the end when he intercepted the loose pass was absolutely shocking and if he had the ball under better control would have left the defence for dead and been clean through on goal.
Can was a beast too, this is the player we were seeing with regularity towards the end of last season, I see no reason why he can't press on now but with Hendo to return it seems like such an unfortunate time for him to come into form.

They've both been playing through injuries.
I hope when we finish 2nd or 3rd this year and get champions league football our squad will have to increase so there will be plenty football for both.
