      What's our record on goals scored vs conceded from free kicks this season?  I know we've scored quite a few and not conceded many.  Just curious if anyone knows what the spread is?  Its definitely an area that we vastly improved in the last few years!!

      Still a shadow of the player from last season, but getting better.
      Overall a very confident performance from the team although second half was a bit meh with to much sloppy play and misplaced passes.

      I just hope the shadow keeps on playing like he did against Southampton as he takes 2 or 3 opposing players out if the game every time he has the ball.

      one thing you have to remember is last season Salah was just another player at this stage in the season. Now he is world class and everyone knows it. Teams setup just to stop him, which gives the rest of the team space. Today Southampton stuck 3 defenders on him at times, they got nervous that badly they were kicking the ball in their own net. I am putting it down to Salah scares the sh*t out of defences.

      F***ing hell Rib. Not bad.



      I don't think Salah is a shadow of his self at all - today he was all over that backline, they were f**king terrified. Could have had a hat trick if not for a decent tackle when he was through, and that almost goal of the year back heel. He's still a touch off his best, but he's certainly doing the job for us. He's adjusting to life as a world class player with a target on his back pretty well, I reckon.

      I hope Jürgen rests EVERY important player in the League Cup (and even then we should have some decent squad)! What do you think? For me a League Cup win would mean 0.0, it's only FA, CL and PL that counts, but I am not English, so does the League Cup mean anything to you or is it just like those preseason tournament sh*t they invented recently?

      I think the FA Cup has slid in terms of importance.  But, the last few yeas their  have been some fantastic matches and finals. Its still not the CL or PL. But i love it and hope we win it.

      Great to see us getting the points again without being anywhere near our best.  We are looking far less likely to concede at the moment that for a long time.

      Shaq was very good - he will only get better having better players around him.  Robbo just continues to impress me, he must be the most complete left back around at the moment.

      It is nice to know that the midweek game will see both teams rest players and we have a bunch of lads who are actually playing to get in our best 11, we do have some greater depth than recent years.

      Gave Matip my MOTM, as I thought he looked very good for his first game of the season, and took his goal very well.

      Heard during the game that they haven’t scored a league goal against us since Mane did. Is that right?

      Just watched MOTD and even re-watching the full match, nothing is actually said of the disallowed goal, but shouldn't the disallowed goal have counted? It came off 2 Southampton players before Salah latched on to it?

      Shaqiri and Matip were brilliant as the rest of the team. We were stuck at 2nd gear but it was enough :)

      Keep them coming.

      32 wins left! 6 are in the bag :)

      Not done this type of post in while but will give it a go:

      Allison: Didn't faff about and seemed good on the ball, got rid when needed and made a decent save at the end 7/10

      TAA: Lad is getting better and better, thought he looked great again. 8/10
      VvD: Best centre back in the world bar none. Hope all is ok, but looked like a precaution to take him off. 8/10
      Matip: Great to see him back, love watching him go on those huge runs upfield, good with the ball and well taken header. 9/10
      Robertson: World class player, never a bad game and today was no different, I imagine people must hate playing against him and I'm delighted we have him. 9/10

      Henderson: Kept the game ticking over very nicely. Made some excellent recoveries and looked good when pressed up further too, really nice dribble which took 3 players out of the game. Saints midfield couldn't get past or get a grip of the game. 9/10
      Gini: Same with Henderson, Saints could do nothing to get round or win the ball back because our midfield was so much better than theirs. Gini is having his best season ever so far in this team, and today was another top showing. 9/10
      Shaqiri: Thought he might play in this position when we signed him, and boy has he made a mark soon. He's loving the freedom that Gini and Hendo give him to march forward and the deeper role than he normally plays means he has space, and space and pace are frightening when put together. I cannot wait to see more of him in that 3 in midfield. 9/10

      Salah: Don't get all this talk about him not playing well, he looks a little tired at times but nothing more. He's getting into the right places and also let's not forget he's actually scoring 1 in 2 which is nothing to sniff at. Another step in the right direction today 8/10
      Mane: Quieter game for Sadio today, but when he gets the ball it's just exciting, you can tell defenders are shitting themselves because they know they don't have the pace to deal with him. 7/10
      Firmino: Was off the boil a little, things were just an inch out of place or passes just short of the mark. Still though his workrate and pressure is always on point, just love having him in the team and you can see him, Mo and Mane are thinking the same things, but it didn't quite come off the way he wanted against Saint. Still a decent showing 7/10

      Gomez also looks like a beast at CB, was great to see him perform even without VvD beside him. Keita isn't having the impact I thought he'd have right from the start, but Klopp does like to give new signings time as we seen with Robbo so I'm happy to see him slowly introduced. Also Milner might just be the best player in the league based on form right now!

      What a f**king team we have!

      People need to understand that finishing involves luck to a significant degree, and outcomes naturally fluctuate over time. Obviously seeing a player missing chances can be frustrating but on the long term the most important thing is that your players are getting themselves into good positions, creating and getting chances. And that Salah has been doing the whole season, which is why I'm really not worried about him. He's been quite good and he's probably due for a spectacular performance sometime soon.

      Professional performance by the team, good to get back into keeping clean sheets after we have been giving up goals the last couple of games. Major positive to see Shaqiri really make impact in his first start, makes it easier for Klopp to rotate him in the front three/CAM position throughout the season if he makes a impact.

      I just hope the shadow keeps on playing like he did against Southampton as he takes 2 or 3 opposing players out if the game every time he has the ball.

      Would you not prefer the shadow to become a beam of light and score a hat-trick?

      Why doesn't that affect Kane, Aguero, Ronaldo, Messi or the other consistent top scorers around the world, is it really only Salah who get extra defenders assigned to him?

      I would prefer all the players to play their part in winning the game , I suspect Salah himself just wants to win.

      He isn’t far off hitting the same level of form he did last year - you can see the confidence coming back with the runs and little touches , some great defending stopped him getting a hat trick and that flick was the stuff you see Messi do
