      People need to remember every club we play is going to target our defense somewhere...that is inevitable.

      On one side you have the worlds most expensive defender and the hottest FB in the country right now, on the other side you have a 19 yo who is still learning his trade and CB's that aren't the greatest...so of course they are going to target Trent.

      When Clyne plays they will target him also...just the way it is.

      Fully trust the kid to do the job tomorrow night. He is a local lad and will be pumped to play his heart out for the fans. No doubt this is the biggest game of his career so far, but I'm sure he will rise to the challenge and make some people eat their words.

      Start him tonight.
      Set him up to play offensively.
      Put City under pressure on that side.

      Let him f**king breathe it all in.

      19 years old, in that atmosphere, against a team of that calibre on a stage this big. Incredible.

      Was caught daydreaming once in the second half which had me worried, but he stepped up big-time against one of the trickiest players in the league.
      Fantastic! This will do his confidence the world of good. Just watch him grow now!

      Him and Karius have built up a nice little partnership, TAA always available for him.

      Couple shaky moments but overall, this is the kind of experience that will harden him. Their entire game plan was basically “attack TAA” and it didn’t work.

      The one very big concern going into the game.  What an absolute brilliant performance.  Like FL Reds said he was obviously the one big target for City.  They tried all night but he held firm.  This will instil confidence in the youngster.  Hope he puts an equally great performance in the second leg.

      I think he did his homework. He watched back the other games where he got it wrong but tonight he was excellent and not fussed.

      He was pumped. He had Sane in his pocket every time, only looked worried when Sane and Silva combined until back-up was provided.

      Absolutely fantastic last night, great way to bounce back from a tricky couple of weeks.

      Also didn't realise how quick he was, a couple of times he was a tad out of position and I was thinking Sane's got this but every time he got back in time to nick the ball way.

      Quite the opposite.

      Played defensively and quite literally had Sane in his back pocket.

      Man of the Match last night.

      And seeing him roar on the rest of the lads with a few minutes to go was a sight to behold.

      Pure scouse heart from Trent last night.

      Clocked that roar toward the end, Stevie G'esque that ;D loved  the kids commitment after his performance against the scum...

      Made up for him...can see years down the road Sane & Trent duals...

      Different type of game.
      Have to admit that TAA/Lovren combo was my main concern.
      Especially if City adopted a Utd/Palace target tactics.

      Then City didn't and I suppose they don't really have the option of a big target front man to knock it on and give LFC problems with dealing with the 2nd ball.

      That said Sane was their biggest threat/outlet and TAA had an exceptional night against him.

      He was brilliant Racer but you’re spot on the tactics City employee made a difference too.

      The thing that impressed me most was that you could see he’s been coached last few days and responding. He made sure he was always narrow and they responded with balls over the top.......but he closed the distance while the ball was in the air and never gave Sane (still their best player in the night I thought) more licence than his ability earned.

      Last night his ability wasn’t enough.

      I’m still not convinced he’s a fb long term but I don’t see that as any kind of criticism.

      He was outstanding last night and showed he could be coached. At 19 that’s enough for now 👍

      Thanks for this comment.

      Been observing how a lot of guys gave this lad the stick cos of a few bad runs. How many reckoned he should be benched for another player that hadn't kicked the ball all season just cos of a few errors.

      Its like we cant recognize quality when we see it.

      This guy makes me smile when I see him on the ball and when I do the trajectory of his growth compared to the local legend I was privileged to watch live I see him even doing bigger things than Stevie at his age.

      Its okay to have opinions, criticize but lets also try to encourage our talents especially the young lads.

      Hope most of you have eaten the humble pie after the 2 legs, with Sane mostly in the lads pocket.
