      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.

      I appreciate this and I hold no ill feelings towards him because of this specific performance. Just surprised no one mentioned it, as it stood out for me.

      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 wasn't 100% - but still did manage to do some kind of kung fu kick to clear it when Firmino tried to score an own goal.

      With more defenders available he probably wouldn't have been rushed back for last night.

      However, like Scottbot says, he's got a huge amount of credit in the bank.  He's the primary reason we're top of the league IMO.

      The main issue was United fan Atkinson with horrendous decisions. It was clear red card and penalty and we would win again with not so good performance.

      I wouldn't go that far mate.

      However I was going to post that it wasn't his normal imperious display and accepting that he had been ill.

      Maguire blind sided him a few times at the far post... and yes they got the goal.

      We got a point.  Missed out on a clear penalty .

      Increased our lead and now City have the Spuds breathing down their neck behind by 2 points.
      Pressure pressure.

      Not looking for excuses but the pitch condition never helped, some passses were very short & we never had that quick fluid attack about us..

      FairPlay to Leicester, sat deep & got us on the counter...

      Maguire the scorer should have seen red, Kieta denied a clear pen...it happens..

      All in all that was a good result. The second i saw the pitch i knew this was going to be a scrappy game. Every pass was followed with a spray of snow and slush, the ball sticking at every opportunity. Difficult conditions and a mish-mash side were never going to be the recipe for a free flowing game of football. I thought both teams tried to play good football but the conditions would not allow it.

      Leicester were happy to play on the break and i thought Mendy was outstanding for them. We had our chances and so did they. Definite penalty for me regarding Keita, bad refereeing but what's new? They could have won it and so could we.

      Bearing in mind we were missing half of our defence again this was a good result. Can't really comment on the performance as the pitch conditions were atrocious. Nothing we can do about that. MOTM was Mane, looked like he had been snorting angel dust prior to kick off, didn't stop.

      As mentioned last night, these lads have beaten City and Chelsea already this Season.

      Don't see what all the fuss is about, potential banana skin avoided.

      January has been a bit of a flat month after a hectic December.  We haven't been great but have come out of it with a 5 point cushion at the top.  Yes, it could've been better, but it could've been worse.

      Just take Feb as a fresh start, get back to winning ways against WHam and keep laying down a marker.

      We've hopefully got a couple of key players coming back from injury this month to bolster the first team.

      It's there for the taking, our boys have just got to grab it with both hands.

      COYR!!!

      To be honest there was only one player playing well last night and that was Mane and to a slightly lesser extent Matip, the rest were all below par.
      Warm weather training, my arse, it makes no sense to me, especially when they return to play in the snow! With an 11 day gap we should have stayed at home and even set up a friendly match maybe to keep some sharpness in the team.
      Anyway its in the past and we cannot expect t win every game, on reflection I'm actually quite happy with a point as we were the worse team after 20 mins, crucial we get back into our groove quickly and I think returning defenders will help a lot, plus please lets splash some cash on an extra attacker now, it could make the difference by the end of the season. Sturridge is just getting worse and worse.

      I am fairly certain they would have worked hard whilst they were away and I've no doubt Klopp was also trying to facilitate the cohesiveness amongst the squad that will be needed in the coming months if the lads are to bring home the title by spending a week together abroad. I think it was a good thing to do.

      It just goes to show how badly we performed last night when Matip is getting a mention as one of our top performers. Just bad conditions.

      We desperately need another attacker but i don't think the January window offers any real value, just problem players and feet stampers. I know we signed van Dijk in January but that followed a rebuke from Southampton in the previous Summer.

      Once we get Arnold and Gomez back this will all go away. That and the terrible winter conditions.

      Propels overractions are mental.

      We are a team who has dropped 11 points all season, one defeat and the hammering they want to dish out for last night is amazing

      That's football.. Leicester had essentially f**k all to play for last night, they can't go down they won't trouble the top 6.. so they came in with a plan to sit 10 behind the ball all game, slow the pace down and cramp the space.. I tell you what even had the gane still been 1-0 in the 93rd minute that wouldn't have changed

      They wanted us to push into their half all game so we were so high that if they then did turnover the play they could try to hit us in behind with vardy and try to create a 2 on 2 as our full backs would be high trying to work an angle in their packed final third

      That was their plan.. it worked, they defended well, they have good players to do that type of job

      They were open at wolves in their last game as they felt they could take them on toe to toe, they left space and were punished in that game. They knew they couldn't take us on toe to toe as we would kill them so changed their game plan 100% to kill and space or pace in the game

      Mid table sides with nothing to play for are the worst type of sides to play in a run in because they dont have to win, they don't need points to survive or points to push for CL places
      But most mid table sides don't have the quality Leicester have and won't be able to play like that
      West ham won't on Monday
      Bournemouth won't

      Stay patient and chalk it off as one of those things, take the point, add it to our lead and move on
      Don't over react and say that's it we're crap it's over city will catch us, we've no options from the bench

      I don't think many others will either play like that (the likes of utd on their own patch wouldn't) or will have the ability to play like that (West ham, the blueshite, Bourenmouth wont)

      Last night was the first team outside of the top 6 to take a point from us.. and they were sh*t scared to play against us how they have played at most other sides because we would destroy them but if you think the likes of West ham have the players, the discipline or the ability to do what Leicester did last night then please relax.. They haven't


      One
      Point
      Closer

      5 points clear of city

      Well we've had a few performances like that over the course of the season and managed to scrape a win, and were it not for a few interesting decisions from Atkinson we might have done the same last night. Not sure how Maguire was still on the pitch, and the penalty looked pretty clear to me.

      Ultimately a below par performance though and we can count ourselves lucky that we're up a point on City over the last few days. Obviously we all would have loved to have gone 7 clear but we can learn from last night, take the point and move on. We weren't passing the ball quickly or accurately in the right areas enough and when you have a good team like Leicester defending well it's going to be tricky to break them down if you're not doing the right things consistently enough.

      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.

      last 3 games has been our bad spell, and we have 7 points from 9.

      Not so bad, esp. considering all the defensive injuries.

      The other thought is we may well win the league by just a single point and last night could have been it. I bet City would kill to be in our position and I think we will now settle down to winning games again and keep the pressure up on City who do have difficult games coming up

      5 points clear not bad at all. I didn't post after the game as I tend to sit on it when we don't win.

      I had concerns about the midfield, said so on page 1. A home draw where we lash shots in, hit the woodwork, keeper makes great saves..wasn't the case last night. We struggled with the conditions but injuries had an effect.

      We can't dwell to much on it, some will, some won't. 5 points clear, great.

      Continued support guaranteed.
