      You know that’s not true in reality.

      You can twist them whatever way you want and expected goals is a total pile of sh*t that doesn't mean anything unless you own an anorak and are about 12

      You know, could the conceded goal have been avoided? The more I look at their goal, the more I am questioning the choice of letting Clyne leave on loan as I rate him higher than Milner, Fab, Camacho and Hendo.

      Yes, the blame lies with Robbo for the foul, but could it have been avoided if we had Hendo in midfield with Wijnaldum? Whilst I am not the biggest fan of the partnership (mainly distribution), Wijnaldum would have been where Keita was or there abouts, and knowing Robertson was further ahead and left back area pretty vacant, would we have seen a different scenario where Wijnaldum would be defending the space and gaining that advantage to stop the one two rather than committing like Keita?

      A similar incident happened vs CP where Hendo over committed and pretty much left Milner 1v1 vs Zaha which led to a goal, but in this case, would a better RB (surely Clyne is better than Milner and Hendo at RB?!) have stopped Zaha? I personally would say yes.

      Yeah, it's such minute details, but it just irks me thinking about it, sorry :(

      City have Arsenal, Everton then Chelsea next in the league. They will drop points in there guaranteed.

      We're 5 points clear. Can everyone get a f***in grip and stop being so negative.

      Pretty sure they'll get 9 points, hopefully we can do the dsme and keep the 5 points advantage.

      pretty disappointing. huge chance we had tonight.
      thoughts,

      hard to say who was worse, the team, the crowd, or the abysmal referee.
      really disappointed in the crowd tonight tho. everyone around me felt incredibly flat. bit odd. expected us to give them a big lift just after half time but it just didnt occur.

      we just didnt look on it. Mane apart, thought everyone was just off. Having said that, Leicester were very good.
      Bit concerning how flat we seemed considering weve just had a 10 day break!

      people will disagree, and im fully aware he has his issues, but i just dont understand why Clyne is off playing for Bournemouth whilst we are playing midfielders at RB.. maybe its just me, but i dont like it. weve looked incredibly vulnerable at the back in the last 2 games (god i miss Joe Gomez)

      im still worried about our squad depth. it just isnt there. had nothing on the bench tonight. Lallana ffs!!

      yep id have ripped your arms off for 5 points clear going into feb, but f**k me......it could have been 7..... everyone has nights that go against them (atkinson) and its safe to say weve had a few go our way this season so cant moan too much.
      6 points an absolute must from w ham / bmouth now......

      Played sh*t the last few games, us. Our bad patch. But f**king guess what? We're still top of that league.

      Five points clear in the f**ker.

      Why are people moaning. A point more ahead than we were a couple of days ago.

      We're in very capable hands here, folks. This fella has won a couple of league titles.

      Loads of footy left to play. Win it or lose it, this, right now, is a lot more enjoyable than wondering if we'll qualify for next season's Champion's League.

      Up the f**king reds.

      Big opportunity missed but ultimately we’ve extended our lead, albeit not by the amount we wanted.

      Only was able to watch the first half, bur I think that spell after our first goal, we were battering them and they were all over the show, if we were more clinical it was curtains. Mane with the free header from the corner he should have buried after Schemical had made a decent save from Firmino who should have scored imo.

      Defending for Maguires goal was not good and is the kind of errors I’d thought we’d got away from, but our defense is still f**king boss, just switched off for a moment.

      Hopefully we can take this as a wake up call and know we can’t agffors any complacency in the run in, and as wake up calls go, to extend your lead is a pretty f**king nice position to be in.

      13 Wins and we got this locked up!!!!!!!!

      Honestly feel sh*t that we drew with such a meaningless concession but in other years we probably would have lost that game.

      Defense should be back to normal with TAA.

      Why are people moaning. A point more ahead than we were a couple of days ago.

      I think, well for me anyway, it’s frustration. It’s part and parcel of football but one thing I absolutely hate is if we take the lead and end up not winning. Probably because we’d have done the hard part of getting in front but then could have been better to keep it that way. Where as if it was the other way around and we came from behind to get a point, I’d be able to accept that more because then it really is a case of 1 point gained rather than 2 points lost.

      But of course, the most frustrating of all is when the shithouse officials are just as much to blame for us dropping 2 points. Twice this month now, both times we could have opened up the gap with City by another 3 points, we’ve had a player who would have been clean through on goal taken out, but the player not see red. How it wasn’t deemed a goal scoring opportunity I don’t know, there isn’t a chance in hell anyone in the Leicester defence would have the pace to get back and stop Mane being through, not a chance. Then it’s salt rubbed in the wounds when said player then scores against you. Salah probably would have gotten up there too, so we would have had a 2v1 and if we score then it’s 2-0 and game over, they weren’t coming back from 2-0 down, not a chance. Fair enough, officials made a mistake again, hopefully 2nd half it will be different...but no, a stone wall penalty not given with a player in a goal scoring opportunity yet again and with the ref looking straight at it.

      So for me, that’s why although we have gained an extra point than City in this gameweek, I can’t help but feel damn frustrated.
      I think I would have found it easier to accept this draw if it didn’t feel like we were screwed out of a good chance of getting all 3 points for the second time in the space of a few games.

      On the button there mate!

      Before we Kicked off Rafa did us a great favour leaving Citeh with a game less than us to overcome a 4pt gap, we've played sh*te, extended our lead by a further point over them leaving them with a 5pt gap to overcome and only 14 games in which to do it, we're 1 game closer to the end of the Season and a great chance to finish above Citeh (I'm not mentioning the trophy!).

      Dropping 2 points is not the worst Scenario with the conditions it is very good news that we have our players coming unscathed from the game.  We don't want more injuries and them conditions could have easily added to our injury vows.  Still a long way to go.  We want to in position with zero pressure but it is still to early we are still in the second third of the season.

      The worse scenario would of been if we had lost 3 points.As it is we are still number one and long may it continue.

      Yes, we we're sh*t, but who was even more sh*t?

      Martin Atkinson. Great job, can't help but think the double standards  this c**t gave us. Not blowing the whistle in the first half, but blowing up the whistle at the same spot before the 4 minute marker in 2nd half , that too after giving Chilwell the card for time wasting.

      Guess the higher ups will be delighted with that joke of a performance, as it keeps the title race "tight". Guess what shitheads, city gonna crumble again with their pathetic away form. I won't be surprised if blueshitef we're to get points against that sh*te.

      I thought Maguire should have been sent off and Keita definitely had a pen. The Leicester shout wasn't a pen as it was outside the box.
      I thought the ref pulled up play twice when we had clear advantage on goal in the second half. I think the pressure in the run in will get to everyone including the Refs. we need to get the monkey off our back and win the league again. I usually think the CL is the most important but for us now, it's the league.

      I'll agree that we didn't get many favours from the ref but we simply didn't do enough to win that game last night, we started so well but then after about 20 minutes the energy levels just vanished and Leicester became the better team. This is one of the many reasons why I'm against nonsense liek warm weather training, how on earth does that help you to play in the snow?? Also why on earth we started Hendo at RB is a complete mystery, not one single good cross all night, I would probably have preferred Camacho in hindsight or Fabinho, but perhaps Fab wasn't quite 100%.
      Anyway that was one of our draws, we can't afford to drop to many more points if we want to win the league, but we have to come roaring back against the Hammers and please please can we get our main defenders back and keep them fit for the rest of the season

      Stats are interesting to a degree but need to be kept in context.

      In this case the “expected goals” doesn’t really reflect the game.

      Yes they had a couple of dangerous flurries but we were always more likely despite being lacklustre.

      Coaches will tell you that stats help them notice things / patterns they missed in the game.

      Jürgen hasn’t walked away saying “phew got away with one tonight did you see their expected goals tally, whooft - thank f**k we got a point!”

      We were flat after 20 mins and struggled to zip it about effectively. I suspect the VVD ill rumour has masked a virus going round. Too many players were blowing out their hoops and slow on turn.

      VVD had his poorest game - Robbo was leggy throughout etc etc.

      Take the point and back to the training ground.

      We end Jan 5 pts clear and 14 to go and City have a tough run coming up.

      That’s us 4.5 weeks away from an insane December which must’ve absolutely stretched energy reserves to put us in this position.

      Players coming back from injury will help the balance. Good options in midfield - though we absolutely do miss a Fekir type.

      We’re a great team having a “
      “slight” lull. It’ll be over very soon.

      About the 2 points dropped, at least we opened up the gap. When we can't take the full points, the next best outcome is to put points between us and second. We did it. It's not the perfect outcome, but one more point is still positive.

      How can opening up the gap by one point be negative? Yes we will always want more, but today isn't perfect. At least we put one more point between ourselves and City.

      They can go f**k themselves celebrating that they're further back behind.

      Anybody who thinks we were just going to win every single match for the rest of the season need their head examined.

      Indeed.  I think we'll win about 10 of our next 14 for what its worth (so thus not winning 4), so if some people aren't prepared to handle some results not going our way then you should maybe book yourself a four month cruise, come back in May and we'll let you know what happened.

      They created the clearer cut chances and the stats back that up, see that’s the issue with the eye test and the stats will remove that inherent bias as we all tend tend to see things through which ever colour specs are being worn.

      We didn’t create anything of note in that second half. Puel seems to have a good record against Klopp, his kryptonite almost.

      Two people have voted for Matip as MOM seriously just Fxxk off

      Interesting how people see things differently when watching a game.

      I thought Matip had an excellent game, he made vital interceptions and blocks, made good runs trying to get things moving all whilst on a yellow card that he had to take because of Hendos wild back heel that caught us out.

      I voted him man of the match as well.

      I think the problem (for some) is that they swallow the media hype and think we’ll fall short unless hit the levels / points that Citeh did last season.

      The goal is to get more points than anyone else THIS season.

      5 point lead is good for me.

      The more I think about it the more I feel better.

      It was a pressure game and Leicester were quite frankly excellent.

      I personally think it could be a wake up call too - hopefully shifting some mindsets, including the manager.

      Maybe an away game is just the ticket we need and hopefully we go to West Ham with something to prove.

      Fair enough - I disagree with your reason / reading of the game that informs your disagreement.

      I positively endorse the fact that you disagree though ;)

      Surprised Van Dijk isn't taking any flack. That was his worse performance in a Liverpool top, lost his man for the first goal and just didn't seem at the races last night.

      He has been ill. No one is perfect. Besides he saved us time and again before this. Just wise up henceforth will do.

      Has been our best and most consistent player all season so he has a bit of credit in the bank. I wouldn’t be surprised if the illness he was carrying may have affected him to some extent.
