      Rubbish performance that.

      Sturridge came on in 85th minute (stupidly late) and didn't even get the ball until the 90th minute. Absolutely ridiculous.

      Deserved to lose. Yet, so close. 1.2 cm from scoring. Fine margins, but the performance was not good enough, and we were lacking in professionalism. So many sloppy touches, poor passes.. all that stuff.

      Yea Studge sub made zero sense the guys legs are done.

      Don't understand why Keita wasn't brought on or even Lallana.

      I don't mind losing if theres some desire from the lads but losing AND playing like we cant be arsed? Nobody should settle for that.




      Saying we couldn't be arsed is just lazy and in fact insulting to our players. I think maybe we could have been braver but we were still up for it and I think this is one where you just have to say City were the better team. Even with that we had three cleared off the line today and Kompany should have been off.

      So now we are left to look at the "positives" following that defeat.

       :f_steam:

      No positives from the defeat.

      Only positives from our previous results.

      We can b*tch, we can moan, but we did nothing wrong. City had about 4 good chances and made 2 goals, we had about 3 good chances and made 1 goal. That's alright in my book if you play on the road against such quality. Still 4 points up, no further injuries. Next.

      Gave my motm to Gigi; worked his socks off. Also thought Fab did well when he came on. 

      Milner and Lovren had terrible games. Terrible. Trent was also very sloppy. Mane practically a spectator.

      Thought Klopp got it wrong with team selection though.

      Whatever. We go again!
      It’s weird how people see different games

      Thought Gini was awful - poor on the ball , lost runners and offered little - seemed to be running on empty

      Milner just didn’t look fit

      Lovren hitting it long with his weak foot from the middle of the pitch was a demoralizing sight there.

      Best team won really. We were playing to their tune as is their right at their ground.

      Huge defeat really.

      We did dance to their tune and despite our great defensive record this season, playing off the back foot does not suit us. When we got higher in the second half we looked more than a match for them but Loven and TAA came under pressure to much and Klopp should've bolstered our left side.

      Still got a decent lead and by far the easier run in.

      Don’t think anyone should be doubting our desire. It was a game where it was always going to be very tactical and pressured and everyone trying to stick to their instructions. The days of shouting and screaming and flying into tackles are fading away.

      Pissed off we lost to those plastic cu*ts but without being anywhere near our best they needed some massive strokes of luck to what us.

      The whole world now will be waiting for us to collapse, now we need to go back and start another run and grind City’s resolve.

      Well to be beaten by City is no disgrace... Think we should have started Fab' over Milner, and never should have taken off Mane. a side from that, we were out hustled of the most of it, and i took two great goals to beat us... Would have been nice to be 9 points clear at the top, but I still feel the title is ours to lose, and tonight's loss will take the pressure off the players, especially TAA...

      Front three didn't do enough for me against make shift back 4 didnt see anyone run at or commit Laporte or Kompany when on yellows. Fernandino destroyed our Midfield head and shoulders best player on park. Got to pick ourselves up now . Need to get a result at Wolves don't want to lose two on trot before Brighton

      Yet he did more in those few touches than many of the lads. Absolutely ridiculous to pretend that his legs are done. The man has such quality. We were crying out for him.

      Chelsea was precisely the same. Rubbish performance. About to lose... Boom! Sturridge saved us. Tonight, he didn't get the chance. Crazy decision to keep him on the bench with us losing like that.

      On a brighter note, Robertson was immense tonight. The only player who I thought truly won his 1v1 battle. Great decision to play the ball across for the onrushing Firmino instead of shooting like quite a number of players would have done.

      Disappointing, especially the midfield selection, Klopp needs to stop his love in with Milner, its ridiculous, as soon as Fabinho came on we looked better. Until he took Mane off, wtf was that about?
      Final point when is Gomez back because Lovren is starting to annoy me again.

      Obviously massively disappointing is my immediate reaction.

      But you have to look at the bigger picture and put things into perspective. This is our first defeat of the season... in JANUARY.. against a top team at their ground. We are still 4 points ahead of them with some fixtures coming up that allow us to potentially go on another winning run.

      It’s not as bad as some of you are making it out to be. It’s not ideal tonight, but my god I would’ve snapped your hand off for the league standings to look like this at the start of season.

      Some of you lads need to get a grip.

      A tight game where we lost by one goal to the best side in the league, apart from us, and you're losing your sh*t.

      We didn't play well, our tactics and selection weren't quite right in hindsight but the world hasn't ended.

      We're still four points clear and if anyone gave you that at this stage before the league started you'd have grabbed it with both hands.

      Pissed off with that, thought on chances we done enough to at least get a draw. Don’t think we were anywhere near our best tonight. Not enough fast ball going forward. Troubled them when we did, but too often it was pass, foot on the ball for 3-4 secs, then pass, etc etc.
      Not enough one touch .
      Looked better when Fab came on, but would have kept Mane on and hooked Hendo. Not because he was crap or anything, but we needed the extra attacking dimention.
      Anyway, that’s just a small reprieve for them, confident they won’t beat us to the title.
      Unbeaten record gone, but hey ho, who gives a F**k now. All that will do is fire us up.

      You don’t go there and dominate it was always gonna be a snipey “take your chances” type game with so much quality cancelling one and other out.

      I think the flag should’ve gone up for their second and Kompany should’ve been off but we’ll play much worse and win handsomely against poorer opposition.

      Most points after 38 games wins and - even with that tonight - we’ve still outpointed them by 6 since start December.

      Form line is great, we’re a great side........don’t sh*t the bed folks for fucks sake. It just betrays how much you wanna win and your neuroses - not the state of the league.

      How can he pick a slow trio of ginny, hendo and milner against a world class midfield.

      That's why I hope we still go for Fekir. We need more quality in the midfield. Against almost all teams our's is enough, but against Barca, Juve or City it's not. But again: Jürgen had to play it safe. What reliable options did he have?

      If we have been braver to attack them down the flanks we would have punished their defence. We simply gave their defence too much respect.
