Great match last night, extra time could have been avoided. No injuries and another trophy in the bag.

Adrian's penalty save will give him the world of confidence and also made a boss save denying mount for a goal. How on earth the penalty for Abrahams was awarded, I guess VAR is going to be questionable on some decisions.

Chelsea were actually really good, just shows what a difference one player in Kante can make for a team. They are going to struggle upfront this season though.

Great result. Not a great match, especially from Liverpool. Thought Chelsea were much the better team. Firmino was class when brought on at the break. Mane was unreal. Adrian the hero obviously but thought he done just ok besides saving the penalty from Abraham who was obviously crapping himself. Well anyway karma that he was the one to miss as he very obviously dived for the penalty in et. A nothing trophy/ friendly game I know but I was so hoping and am so glad we won it.

I don’t understand why this game has extra time. The game comes at a time where the likelihood of the teams that will play in it will either just have started their season or about to start it so they’re not going to be fully match fit and to then ask them to play an extra 30 minutes is stupid. The 2 big points for me is we came away with a trophy and came away without any injuries.

Having watched the cricket World Cup during the summer they had something similar to VAR methodology. One of the results was to follow the umpires initial decision even if the decision was potentially wrong. Cricket has accepted this.

Last night VAR was consulted and there was nothing to clearly indicate the refs decision was wrong.

In other words, the problem with VAR right now is the fans and pundits don’t understand the rules or maybe they just haven’t been stated clearly enough.

Thought the refs were on par yesterday so well done to her and her linos.

Not sure why the handball wasn’t consulted to VAR at the beginning of the game but would have been very harsh to give that as a penalty anyway.

Strange or is our Squad not that good but why Two Goalkeepers on the Bench Chelsea only had one goalie as sub having one more outfield sub than us. Kelleher and Lonerghan were Subs on LFC Team Sheet?

I thought the Ox was going to play last night? A new position for Fabhino looked like he was playing Centre Forward first half with an almighty gap left in the Middle.

Still a Wins a Win so what's wrong?

007 it’s because we could name the whole rest of the squad on the bench and we happen to of taken 3 keepers with us.

James, Ox played the first half last night. Or maybe not; very few noticed it for obvious reasons.

I feel you, JK23. A game like this should not have extra time at all BUT it's UEFA so there you go. As for the game itself, I was super impressed with Chelsea with the way they played. They simply exposed all our short comings in midfield and in defence with this super high line we are playing (leaving gaps for their strikers to run into) and the gaping whole left in central midfield with Hendo and Milner pushing up hence, leaving Fab all alone whenever we lost the ball which allowed Kante, Pulisic and Kova room to operate.

Both teams battled hard in the game itself and either one could have won the game there at the end BUT LFC stayed the course, never gave up and kept fighting. My concern now is what is our perf. levels going to be like vs the Saints.

" I thought Ox was going to play " Nice sarcasm there.

Didn't have the best game, Everest. He is still coming back from injury layoff hence, it's goner be a slow burner for him all season, I'm afraid.

Ox who has had his best moments for us in the centre of midfield seems to be ahead of Shaq for a front 3 position now. Or is Shaq still carrying a knock.
