    Huge win. We needed that. Not arsed how we played. Listening to them rent-boys singing the Steven Gerrard song again and then have to trudge out of their shitty shed defeated is all that matters. That and the 3 points. Brilliant.

    Yes that was painful to watch at times, but if you look at the overall game - I would say:
    • we won the first half, and
    • we also won most of the second half until they scored
    That game in terms of its momentum was not unlike the Napoli away game.  Chelsea's players are some of the best in the PL, despite the transfer ban, and this game was never going to be easy, Man City lost last season at the same ground.

    Any team going for the title has to play and win these dodgy games - or rather grind out results - the problem we have is that the "Other Team" has won the league with relative ease in the last two seasons - they are either fucking brilliant in the way they play and win or lose for inexplicable reasons but never do they look like they grind out a result or the less dominant side unless they play us.  

    Also top marks to our defence overall, and I think Adrian is proving to be world class for us with his saves.  The guy has been first class, and I can forgive him for his early mistakes because neither he or any of us or the LFC team expected him to be in goal so early on in the season - the guy has oozes confidence.  The biggest worry for me was the lack of cohesion between the front three, as it was the other night - was it just me or did the grass look as bad as it did at the Napoli ground ? - Salah and Mane were terrible, and Bobby was not that great either - that said ... still one of the fab three manages to score - so who the fuck am I to have a go at the fab 3 ?

    Sky Sports' Martin Tyler is a despicable bigot.  He loves Manchester United and he hates Liverpool.  His commentary on today's match was like sitting next to a Chelsea supporter.  He claimed the VAR decision to disallow Chelsea's goal was "pedantic" although the player was a foot more offside than Spurs disallowed goal on Saturday.  He said that Chelsea deserved an equaliser without providing any evidence for this claim.

    Lampard deserves a fair bit of credit too. Forced to use two of his subs early. Goal chalked off by VAR and then we score at the other end almost right after.

    One hell of a half time talk to ensure that team's mentality is right in the second half. And we started the second half brightly before they took it over.

    Aren't these the type of games that challenge the mentality of the players. Its good to know we can hold a lead, or even come back from a goal behind.
    Im pleased at the outcome

    Klopp has this idea in his head that if he brings Milner on late in the game, this will settle things down and make the result safe.  

    I don't think this is correct.  Milner is a great player but he is getting slow and concedes free kicks.

    I think we’re seeing why the club haven’t offered him an extension.

    Can someone explain to me why that foul on Mane (which led to TAA goal) was not actually a penalty? His foot was in the box.

    What's the point of VAR when it doesn't see that?

    Because the foul occurs outside?

    If one of your feet are on the line and in box and you are fouled by someone outside the box, is that not considered inside?

    Also, if a foul starts outside and continues inside, is that not also considered a pen?

    No it depends where the foul happens. If I push you from behind outside the box and your head is inside, its a free kick

    Pretty sure thats correct anyway, not known it to be any different

    Mane was in the box (one foot anyway) and was fouled by someone just outside the box. And you're saying that's not a penalty?

    I am pretty sure the line is part of the box and thus any foul on it, should be a penalty.

    Literally paused it on Motd just as contact was made. As you can see.. His right foot was clearly inside the box although the left that was kicked was outside. However, my understanding of the rules was that if any part of you was in, or even on the line, it is a penalty.

    Maybe I am wrong. I'd actually like to know the rules on that.
