I thought this was one of our best performances of the season. Yes, not everything went right, especially in the first half but we're away to one of the best sides in Europe so it's to be expected. What no one expected was that we'd limit them to one shot on goal (I believe it was) all game. It was a thoroughly mature performance, attacking in the right moments, defending in others, never allowing ourselves to be caught doing too much of either. The press was excellent, the defending spot on, for the most part - yes, Robbo needs to do a lot, lot better for that goal, and yes he didn't need to put that tackle in at the end - as was our counter attack which was more fluid than it has been for some time when playing away from home.
Mane has now scored both goals of the season. Just give him the award because no one's going to do better. He really is becoming a world class player at the right time for us. Salah was excellent and did everything right but score a goal (you can debate whether he should have passed to Mane on that chance, whether he should have gone down or was right to shoot himself), but for MOTM I voted the big man, the world's best centre back, Virgil 'Big Virge' Van Dijk. He was imperious again, showing not only his class but his leadership abilities.
I just hope we can avoid a domestic tie, and get a relatively easy run in the next round. That said, this Liverpool team has proven over the last two years that it can beat anyone on their night so the draw should hold no fear for us.
