It seems to have become a trend this season after every game to say Liverpool were not at their best but scraped through/ found a way to win.

This got me thinking, how many games this season have we actually met expectations and played scintillating football?

we exceeded expectations against Leicester on boxing day and at least met them against city. nothing really jumps out other than that. beat Burnley away without much fuss too. we just keep picking up points. unbelievable what we are doing.

Leicester away springs to mind. Arsenal at home. Spurs at home even though it was close. Norwich at home. There's been quite a few games to be honest were we have played really well and dominated, though not all of them have lead to a dominant scoreline. When we have been off, of when the opposition has been particularly inspired, we've still had the grit to grind it out. We're doing exactly what we need to do and that ability to grind it out is what separates us and City right now.

We create chances every game. Maybe it’s just we’re not putting away as many as people would like. I think Klopp has soured it up a lot since Fabinho has been out and not let the other the midfielders go as high as usual as there is no natural CDM in their.
Saturday, ox hit the post and And Van Dijk had a free header. Heads that anywhere else on target and it’s a sure goal. Would those two goals and at 3-0 made you think that mate?

When klopp first game and our team would face a superior team. His tactics were to disrupt the oppositions game. Great midfield for winning balls back and the creativity to set the speedy forwards on their way.

Now we are one of the elite clubs. Best in the world. Well, we won the wcc. If not the best we are near the top of the top 5

We have been winning comfortably lately bar spurs. And not just the score line. We've been imperious. It must be so hard for oppo teams. They have to get past our high pressing forwards, our robust and hard midfield (with fabhino back soon WHAT A BOOST FOR THE RUN IN) People will say city lost it coz of key injuries. Well, we are done to 4th cb and he made vvd look 2nd best once of twice. We have a better squad. Fab comes in and sure up our already pretty impressive defencive line. Score and 40 yard screamer against city.

But on that same basis of think Gaz827 Spurs could easily have scored a few themselves from wasted chances
I’ll take the 1-0 and 3 points and keep my fingers crossed we beat Utd by any score line!

13 Jan 2020 15:03:44
The home leg against Salzburg was arguably our best performance, attacking wise.

13 Jan 2020 16:23:11
We should’ve been out of sight by half time against Spurs. We played like the home team and completely dominated every aspect of the game, created 4 guilt edged chances but only scored 1. That then gave them a chance going into the last 10 minutes and they had 2 chances but didn’t take either. Job done.

13 Jan 2020 16:39:11
Wolfbagger of course bud.
I thought we really did well against Spurs. A Mourinho spurs too.
At 0-0 he was slowing it down and trying to frustrate us. At 1-0 down he couldn’t get the ball on the pitch any quicker if he tried!
I’m of personal thinking that we’re playing decent football but our results aren’t showing that because the press think you need to bag 4 or more to be class.
every Spurs fan I know was dreading playing us Saturday
I think we have cracked it mate

Hardest game of the season is Man U at Anfield. Beat them I’ll break my no drinking till April and toast Liverpool being champions.

13 Jan 2020 16:44:48
Leicester 4-0
Sheffield Utd 2-0
Bournemouth 3-0
Salzburg 2-0

Can't think of any others really. Klopp did this last year though. Steady start. Then went for it after the Dec/ Jan congestion was out the way.

Come Feb we'll hit full stride.

Surely smashing Everton 5-2 has to count? I know it was no clean sheet but we absolutely battered them.

13 Jan 2020 18:09:09
Must have a short memory PB, ha. We are playing winning football that is all that matters. In 80% of the games we have played well. Norwich, Salzburg away was good, Arsenal home, Spurs home, City home, Newcastle home, Burnley away just a few off the top of my head. What do people want jam on it?

In almost every game we have had more chances than our opposition. OP we have far exceeded my expectations.

13 Jan 2020 20:47:48
Spot on, Mark. We are playing title-winning football (Gary Neville used that exact term last season already) which is play well enuff to win the game in front of you. A team that has to be at it's best to win every game, will win absolutely nothing. A good example would be this same LFC team pre-last season that had to outscore everyone and be a 10/ 10 to win every game. We won nothing doing that and Klopp realized that and the rest is history.

Also, title-winning football does NOT require you being at your best in every game. Even City when they won the PL in the last two seasons where not at their best in every game BUT you did not hear a soul ever say that like it was a bad thing. When it is LFC, the pundits always say it like it is a bad thing. We are ruining people's dreams and making their nightmares come true in real time so to me, we have been brilliant this season and long may that continue.

Beating City. Them along with us are the best in Europe.

There were actually quiet a lot of games this season where a nervy scoreline made many forget about the overall performance. Sheff Utd away we should have easily been 3 or 4 up by HT. Spurs at home we hammered their goal only for gazzaniga was on fire, Chelsea Stamford bridge we dominated them all over first 70 mins. Newcastle and Burnley we cruised at ease. Arsenal we played off the park while and Leicester with last minute Milner penalty we should have finished them before HT and dominated. Our problem was a nervy defence for a while but nearly every game we have controlled and created enough chances to score more. Our lack of clean sheets was giving off an unfair vibe towards our performance levels I feel.

I can think of 2 games where we were poor, United 1-1 and villa away we were dreadful . First 45 mins vs Southampton we were 2nd best but should have scored 3 or 4 goals 2nd half.

Yeah, the city win was amazing. Absolutely blew them away. I'll take a draw at the ethiad. Even a loss ain't the end of the world.
