      Unfortunately only saw 3 minute highlights because for some reason Optus has our game against the mancs on demand but not this one. Looked like we were extremely sloppyin possession, great to see Fabinho get another assist and Big Virg getting on the scoresheet aswell.

      What a christmas present looking at the table is. :)

      I do, however, wish for Santa to bring us a LM/LW so we don't have to play the likes of Keita or Lallana there when Mane is either not playing or on the right. It just doesn't suit them and becomes a weak link. Any injury to Mane and we're fu**ed in that position.

      This is where I think Harry Wilson could do a job, but he’s doing so well at Derby I wouldn’t wanna disrupt that mid season...

      Klopp made a point about the grass being sh*t. And we also had extremely wet weather. May explain with some of the unexpected speed of our passes.

      Good game, Fabinho, Salah and VVD were very good.
      We are so wasteful in front of goal... we can and we will improve.

      The Hendo-Fabinho partnership seems to work and Fabinho brings a lot to the team. He should start.

      Was out Last night but managed to watch the whole game, so here are my thoughts on the match...

      Made up for the win and glad to see VVD get his first and long over due goal in the Prem' for LFC...

      Team performances...

      I thought James Milner struggled at right back, not his most natural position, and can not understand why he was played there when the better option would have been to play Fab', who has played right back on many an occasion., there instead and Milner up field... If we play Milner there vs. Arsenal and we are in trouble...

      Both Fab' and Keita was poor, as was Firmino and Robertson...

      Fab' while not as bad as Keita put in some poor passes, and gave the ball away on multiple occasions...

      Keita was slow to move the ball, ran too often down blind alley's resulting stalled attacks and the ball being lost...

      Firmino seemed to go missing for the majority of the game and one could excuse supporters believing the he was not actually on the pitch at time... In his defence I thought that on leave the pitch he looked run down as if he was suffering from the flu or something

      Robertson , for me was the most disappointing... What happen to the lad we all know, bombing down the wing, overlapping and playing killer crosses...?? This happen way too little last night and when the crosses came they were over hit

      Most of our attacking play seem to revolve around players trying to walk the ball into the area, and given the rain, and the surface last night very little attempts at low hit shots from around the edge of the area or defence dissecting passes using the slickness of that rain dampened surface seem to happen if at all ...

      I don't thing that this was down to two good team cancelling one another out… We were poor, and had it not been for some great defensive play at time from VVD, and our two goals things could have quite easily been very different...

      Keita injury though at this time reported to not be that serious, had it happened to Fab' and been more serious and with the lack of experience cover for CB this would season threatening... Need to bring in a CB ASAP

      Need to rewatch it.

      Couple of things I want to clarify in my head but VVD was imperious, Henderson was our best midfielder and, like most of the league games this season, I was never in doubt of the result. Whilst Wolves were in the game, the 0-2 score line slightly flattered them on the night.

      Honest question...

      Have we even clicked or moved into 3rd gear yet?..

      There is plenty more to come from this squad of players & if they continue with their focus this could become a very very special season..

      Just to say I thought we were not poor but gave a good accounting of ourselves against a team who posted a genuine threat in horrible conditions. Yes there were  some mistakes, especially in the latter part of the first half, and yes they had some chances, but mostly we had control of possession and created a decent attacking threat ourselves. Good road win.

      I'm interested to see how much rotation we use vs Newcastle. I think a number of players could use rest before Arsenal and Man City

      There is. The clearest sign is the way we've stepped it up against the big boys or when we've really needed to.

      Perhaps we don't have a 4th gear anymore, perhaps balance is how Klopp's evolved the team.

      Starting to think Keita isn't the player I thought he was. I know he's been injured and his performances have been stop-start, but still. He had to put up with two nasty tackles last night and maybe that hindered him. I think his decision making needs to improve and I also think he's coming to terms with the physicality. Time will tell.

      Surprised to see Fab only got 5 votes for MotM. Ok so he misplaced about two passes, and one of them was in the first 5 mins(?) but aside from that, he mopped almost everything up.

      How good is VvD though? I think I can confidently say that on this current form (and it's been pretty much this from since he signed) he is the best CB we have ever had - and I watched the Hansen and Lawrenson partnership and that was pretty devastating. Even the mancs over in the caf are saying he reminds them of a prime Rio Ferdinand (and let's be honest, Rio in his pomp was excellent - Fergie even played him in midfield once because he was so good with the ball at his feet).

      Allison too impresses but he does need to stop being so sloppy with the ball at his feet. I don't care whether or not he's the best keeper in the world. Couldn't care less because he's still GOOD enough.

      Henderson did good last night. I think a lot of people overlook the job he has, and that's to keep things steady and to keep the ball. I think he looks a tidy player when he's playing it square or back to the defence. He's safe, he doesn't play a forward pass unless it's on. Yes it frustrates and yes it can sometimes bring our momentum to a stutter now and again, and yes we can replace him, but I think the amount of flak he gets is sometimes undeserved (though you can say that about any player I guess).

      Similar with Milner. Hard working, will play anywhere and will give his all. Almost 33 know but he's a valued member of the squad and that's because Klopp can rely on him. You need utility players like him in there, somewhere.

      Mane is really bugging me. He plays most games like it's a friendly. When he's up for it he's a beast. Been a while though since he's been up for it (his finishing has been utterly dreadful and his passing so sloppy) and I can see Shaq starting there before long.

      Bobby is starting to motor again and Salah just keeps on being Salah. If Salah improves his first touch he'll be even better.

      Robertson is a solid player too, but my son sussed him out. He's great instinctively but when he has too much time to think, he can look a bit wanting.

      My Missus has only been watching for three years.  She understands the game.

      She said “So what’s next for Milner?  Is Klopp going to ask him to put on the gloves to give Becker a break?”

      She also calls him Boris and if he makes 12 saves she calls it a Becker dozen.

      They had 15 minutes at the end of the 1st half where they caused us problems - apart from that I thought we were in control and pretty comfortable.

      Passing was a bit off, partly maybe down to the conditions, but definitely deserved the win. Big Virgil for MOTM - what a player the guy is. About 4 times strikers were 1 on 1 with him - he just feints like they'll wrong foot him if they go outside, they go outside, then he just surges up alongside them and goes "ok what are you going to do from out here" haha. He doesn't even have to make a tackle most of the time, never mind dive in.

      Fab was pretty scrappy with his passing last night. Interesting contrast between him and Hendo. Fab offers more penetration ( eg Mo's goal), but maybe gives the ball away more. Hendo hardly ever gives the ball away ( partly cos of his more conservative style). I think it's very handy having 2 somewhat different styles of player who can play DM. Last night showed they can play together if necessary, but ideally I think you'd play 1 of them, not both. Anyway they give us more options, and ability to rotate.

      Anyway, another 3 points and more pressure on City.

      Come on Rib, it doesn't matter how good Everton are, they can be Barca level and would still lose on purpose to stop us from succeeding. Remember 13/14 where they put zero effort vs City at their home ground and those cu*ts cheering each City goal? How about the numerous occasions where they didn't even try vs teams around us ?

      What got me even angrier that game was if they would of tried to win, they could of solidified a 4th place CL spot. Such losers they are.
      They will never help us, in fact they lay down at every team that is in competition with us!!

      We had a few dodgy spells in this game which is to be expected based on what Wolves has done all season but over I thought it was a good showing to get the festive period off to a great start. I thought Hendo was really effective in ball retention and moving the ball, it seems that when we play difficult sides away from home Hendo has his best showing. VvD was amazing there isn't much else to say he did everything and really enjoying Salah who found his scoring boots and continues to produce.

      Was out Last night but managed to watch the whole game, so here are my thoughts on the match...

      Made up for the win and glad to see VVD get his first and long over due goal in the Prem' for LFC...

      But you said Keita was poor. And as for Robbo, his overhit cross set up the second goal, so maybe he should try a few more of them.

      Average first half, professional second half, won comfortably. City didn't win there, Chelsea lost there, so that shows how big a result it was. Hope most fans appreciate it, because I do.

      21 points from 21, VVD chipping in, another clean sheet, the joint least goals conceded in 15 years, unbeaten; tell you something, if you're struggling for last minute holiday gifts, print out that league table and hand it to a like-minded red one. And remember, if we're top after the return game at home, we will have some silverware to go beside it.

      It's as simple as that.
