      Go for Mo. MOTM. Nunez worked his coat off today. Jota class. I like what Endo does, combative, busy, can pass it well, gets it done, no fuss.

      Good team performance all round.

      Excellent win. Thought the front three were really good. Midfield a little shaky but didn’t hurt us too much today.

      Vastly superior performance from the reds today & a lot more energy than what we’ve seen
      Over the last two games and a splendid 3 points going into the international break.
      Salah motm.

      Home form is very good. Its on the road we need to improve. Not to labour the point but that table would look so much better if we'd done our job at Luton.

      3 goals today ... could have been 6. Could have been 6-3 🙂

      True, but we are in a good spot all things considered.  We've had some really poor officiating, unnecessary red cards, and a complete midfield overhaul, so to be within touching distance of the top is encouraging.

      Decent first half, great second half.

      Thought Tsimikas and Endo  both made a big contribution today.
      VVD back to his mr cool best.
      Don’t think anyone done much wrong to be fair. 2or3 lapses of concentration, snd a few balls squirting out of  tackles going against us.
      Thought Tierny gave them lots of contentious free kicks, and us only the obvious. Cheating b***ard. But we overcame all that for a deserved win.

      3 points and second in the table. That’ll do me as our lads are still learning to play together.

      Went for Mo motm. 2 great goals and involved in most that was good for us.

      Thought for a minute they were going to screw us again over Endo's tackle. Looked at it umpteen times, no doubt trying to justify sending the Ref to the monitor. Then finally realising they couldn't get us, let it go.

      Thought Endo played quite well today, Tsimi grew into the game.
      Whole front line played immense too.

      Ali with some great saves.

      Thought this was the performance and result we needed after a disappointing mid week result.

      Jota and Nunez looks a good pairing. Nunez beating up a few, Jota picking up the pieces. Cody or Diaz complementing. Mo doing his thing.Playing 2 genuine midfielders with Trent coming in to mid looks like a good home set up.

      Better teams might've scored today so it's not a foolproof system. But it allows 4 attackers. If everybody chips in with the workload it could make us plenty of points.

      The Anfield checklist was completed again today.

      Liverpool win - check.
      Liverpool score at least three - check.
      Mo Salah scores - check.

      If people wanted a response to the last couple of performances, they got it. Much better than Luton and Toulouse from everyone involved. Players who've been given sh*t in the last few weeks really stepped up today - or at least most did.

      First half was a bit on the nervy side of things as we looked wide open at the back. From a very early set piece for them up until Mo opened the scoring, we looked like we could concede at any moment. But from Mo scoring to Diogo killing the game off with his third, it was a formality. After the third, we gave them a few half chances but nothing to get too worried about.

      Could tell the boss was happy with the performance and knew that with an international break coming up next that we could allow to use the starting XI for almost the entire game.

      It's another one chalked off, another step closer to the quadruple and for now we're right there with City at the top of the table. Some had written this season off before a ball was kicked, others were questioning us on the back of the last two or three games but we're proving that we're up for the fight this year. Couple of injuries over the last couple of years would have seen us struggling but this year we seem to have that little bit more depth that is allowing us to accomodate those eventualities.

      Alisson - I'm unquestionably his biggest critic on this forum but today I thought what he had to do was, he did with F***ing ease. I don't think there were any real threats bar that one on one where he made himself big and got a hand to it. Everything else was saves he should make but make them he did.

      Alexander-Arnold - was almost as bad an opening 20 minutes or so as anybody in our history. Don't think he made a successful pass in that time. And I thought it was apt we were playing a team sponsored by "hollywood" because Trent was trying to play Hollywood passes too often. As the game went on though, he did improve. One lovely pass to Mo from a set piece that Mo decided to place into the stand instead of the net. Defensively, he'll always have his problems and I don't think Jürgen seems interested in getting him to improve on that side of things so maybe we shouldn't be too focused on it.

      Matip - didn't cover himself in glory in France but today was back to the Joel Matip that I love. And he should be given man of the match just for his reaction to getting booked. It was hysterical but so was the fact he got booked in the first place.

      Van Dijk - said it a few times this season that he looks back to the Van Dijk pre-injury. Strong, quick, commanding and most of all decisive. Massive improvement on where he was 12 months ago. Immense again today.

      Tsimikas - he's been slaughtered recently and rightly so because he's been shockingly bad. First half looked like it was going down that route again but second half he picked up. A bit like Trent on the other side, it's his strength to be going forward. When he's asked to defend, he's going to struggle. Today was a game where he was allowed to showcase his strength more than his weakness. Good game Greek.

      Szoboszlai - it was another poor showing from him I thought. Didn't really offer much with the ball and seemed to give it away a lot.

      Endo - he plays football the way some cricketers bat. By that I mean he has to feel bat on ball, or in his case foot on ball. He seems reluctant to jockey the opposition and instead always tries to win the ball and nick it away. And that's why he's always walking the tightrope to getting booked and also why people just roll him so easily. But he gets stuck in and that's always a plus in my book. We've lacked someone with a real bite to them for a while.

      Gakpo - much better showing from him in the middle of the park than the first couple of games of the season. Seems to be getting back his fitness and sharpness. Wasn't outstanding today but I thought he did alright.

      Salah - his 197th and 198th goals for Liverpool came at a time when we really needed them to calm our nerves. He's sheer quality. You can tell he's enjoying his football right now, especially when playing with Trent, Dom and Darwin. That quartet down the right is getting Mo back to his very best.

      Nunez - today was the sort of game where just his presence is warranting a start. He wasn't great but he worked his bollocks off and gives space to others because the opposition know they have to mark him. He offers us a real threat with his pace. He's a big b***ard. He's just a c**t to play against. And he plays with a smile on his face a lot of the time.

      Jota - give him a chance and he'll score more often than not. Today wasn't his usual poachers finish but instead an effort from outside the box. And he's gone to 49 goals for the club, almost the half century for Diogo. He's tireless as well. Almost a Dirk Kuyt type engine but with quality in his feet as well.

      subs - all four of them came on that late in the game that there wasn't much more than a cameo from all. Harvey did have a decent effort from distance that forced a save from their keeper.

      Overall, F***ing much improved from where we've been. Back to back three nil wins at Anfield in the League and three consecutive clean sheets at Anfield. Six games at Anfield in the League, six wins this season. A real fortress.

      27 points after 12 games is the third highest total we've had under Klopp. Eclipsed only by the 99 and 97 pointer seasons.

      It shows how far we've come in the last decade that a few of us are probably even thinking about the dropped points at Luton and Spurs!

      This time last season we were 9th so I'm happy with our progress so far.

      Happy as well. The only downer for me was Luton. A draw at Chelsea is ok. Brighton ... tough place to go and we were mugged at spurs. Just that Luton game and if we're gonna challenge we can't be losing points there.

      But as you say ... much better than 9th and hopefully a plan for January is in place

      We’re almost half way thru November, we’ve yet to hit top gear, we’re sat a point behind that Fraudulent lot, jacksy KUNTS again, we’re above Arteta’s bottlers, albeit on goal diff, and getting fu**ed over by VAR at Spuds has robbed us of top spot, but we’re breathing down Checkbook Charlie’s neck already and we’re not going away,

      We got them kunts next at the emptihad and we’ll have to be on top of our game, so this international break this time is almost welcome only for the fact we can rest & recuperate, if I had my way, I’d withdraw all of my players from international duty, Our bread & butter is more important than any tin pot International trophy imo, plus, we have a pivotal league fixture coming up and we don’t need players hobbling back from a meaningless international game, injured, what they gonna do, fine us ??  So F**k  FIFA & F**k UEFA too Corrupt bas**rds !!!
