Ok performance but a great result - much needed for our confidence. Made up for Stevie, top performance, MOTM by a mile.
We had a few nervous moments as usual and conceded yet another soft goal but overall we look a bit more solid don't we? Take away the Skrtel-Lovren partnership, take Stevie out of the DM role, take Balotelli out of the team and all of a sudden we look more competitive again.
Lucas is obviously being praised by the usual suspects on here. He was alright. Nothing special. F***ing disaster for their goal by turning his back and being walked past. Numerous fouls (including Vardy's dive). Typical Lucas game really. Did alright but because it's Lucas, on here an alright performance from him is as good as Graeme Souness in his prime.
Take it your not a Lucas fan then? He is no world beater but he certainly does his job well for Liverpool and will always give it 100% unlike some. Thought he played well and we have looked far better in the last couple of games since he has played the DM role. Don't think anybody can argue that. We have 6 points from 6 at the end of the day.
Our goalie is awful and he needs to be dropped ASAP. After making that world class save against Stoke he went back to his usual self. He is awful and makes one or two massive mistakes per game. He is a liability.
The full backs are crap too. Manquillo and Johnson aren't good enough. I've not been impressed with Moreno either, he made a promising start with us but since then he has looked inexperienced and nervous to me. He isn't the best at defending either.
Skrtel and Toure look better than Skrtel and Lovren but the sooner Sakho is fit the better for everyone.
Lucas has to start every game for us for the time being.
Gerrard looked good further up the field. Lallana and Henderson did ok. I'd still prefer to see Coutinho in the team though.
Sterling played well in the second half - it has been a long time coming.
Lambert has to play for the time being too. He is our best option until Danny is fit.
Good 3 points, keep the momentum going and beat Sunderland next. 9 points out of 9 and we should then be sitting around 6th. We will be back in the top 4 in no time.
