      Thought Trent poor and Salah and Bobby off the pace. Gini quiet
      Fab and Robbo good and Origi bright when he came on. Mane our star at the moment just hope the 2 week break will help Mo and he comes back firing

      Clearly not at our best today, especially in the final third.
      Mane’s goal was a thing of beauty though.
      An off day, following a huge game on Wednesday, and still got the three points.
      However mane reacts, the pen was a stone wall decision. To not give it would have been ridiculous. Clear drag back.
      Anyone who can’t see that is either retarded, doesn’t know the rules or is a WUM. Simple.
      Done our bit, back on top, just keep it up !

      Can't knock Trent much.He's learning all the time. Have to remember we don't play with a target man. His crossing is a bit off sometime but he is an outstanding talent that can only get better. Klopp won't say a word of criticism just a gentle nudge this way or that but he knows time is on his side.

      I was sat in the Hammersmith End for this one...with the home fans. It's a strange thing sitting with the home fans in that you have to keep civil and there is a disconnect happening to the point where it feels like I'm watching them on tv which inevitably makes me more critical. When sitting at Anfield or with home fans in away matches I'm relentlessly positive and never does a negative remark pass my lips and into the open air! But the Fulham fans were very civil and it was a nice comfortable place to be in. And as expected, Craven Cottage is beautiful if a little difficult to view the whole action. It makes you really appreciate the full perspective offered by the new main stand at Anfield and Anfield as a whole.

      Trent had a tough game and he may find that with Gomez coming back he'll get his performances kick started. Firmino very sloppy today as well - he's a had a fair few of those this season, maybe too many. Thought Robbo was his usual dependable self. You never have to question where Robbo is - he's always where he should be and his play and work rate with Mane on that left side makes it a glorious outlet for us. I must say I still get a warm/surreal feeling seeing Robbo and VVD playing for us when just a few years ago they were battling it out for their respective teams in the SPL in places like Dingwall, Dundee, Hamilton...places that seem a world away from the excessive luxuries of West London!

      Mane continues to be Mane - a pure match winner for us. Surely opposition sides are looking at us and are putting him as the number 1 threat instead of Salah now. His form, when we've really needed it, has been exceptional. No price can be put on his efforts in keeping us fighting fit in Europe and domestically.

      And it's nice/a relief to successfully come away from a match that features that rarest of happenings - a Virgil blunder! But apart from that he was always on the front foot and the mistake didn't get to him. And the whole team responded well and in the end we deserved it (could anyone complain if we had scored a third?) even if we weren't quite at it today.

      Nice review - I’ve been in the home end for away matches twice this season, it is a weird experience.

      Firmino was sloppy but I liked his confidence to get on the ball and try make things happen - we would miss it if he wasn’t on the pitch. Just love him

      Niffty post. One of the decent London clubs. Never been in the Cottage myself. But Yes Mane is a goal scorer.A threat even when he's off blob. Over shadowed by Mo last season but he is going great this season. VVD is so laid back about the whole deal. Wonder if the Boss has to have a go at him, wind him up to get him fired up. On interview VVD looks as if nothing rattles him.

      Horrible game, but lovely scrappy 3 pts, needed to be more clinical when on top for large periods, but we go again, plus points were Mane again stepping up to the plate, Robbo was up and down all game long, and Fab showed his class, Trent was poor, and Mo and Bobby not firing lately.

      He is allowed to have a bad game and be singled out like others . Wasn't just his crossing was his general distribution and switched off a few times as he did against Burnley

      That was a crap performance from us to be honest. But I’m glad we found a way to scrap for 3 ponts. Don’t want to be overly negative, but I hope we start taking these lesser teams more seriously.

      When I see our record for this season against these so called 'lesser teams' I'm fairly convinced that we are taking them seriously.

      Suppose it was never going to be a walk in the park. We are an edge of the seat team. On the brink week in week out. The coal face...those of a nervous disposition make your way to the exit. The nerves will be stretched right to the wire.

      Well yes agreed.There has never been a LFC player or manager, young or old who has been above criticism.

      Missed the 2nd half, but delighted to see we took the 3 points.

      Surprised to see it was a close game.. and by the comments here, seems I missed a poor 2nd half performance.

      Well obviously we do take them seriously but yes I can see where your coming from, esp in the first half when we appeared to coast it at times. But we are not a team who can switch it on at will. At times this season we have had to grind out results. That will continue. Nothing guaranteed with this team except sheer hard craft.

      Sturridge got 2 votes for MOTM..didn't see him touch the ball....must've been his brilliant off the ball runs that swung it.
      LOL...
      Unbelievable how some here still hold him in such i regard as to award him votes just for being subbed on

      Edit... VVD gets no votes while Lallana and Sturridge gets them. I seen it all now

      Just frustrated I suppose because we seem to be hesitant to try and score anyway but walking it in or from set pieces. I’d like to see some shots in goal from outside the box occasionally. Also we’ve left ourselves where we may need to worry about goal differential and we really should be scoring 4 or 5 against this team.

      Salah in line for some stick for allegedly being greedy. I don't think he was that bad. He missed a great chance but there wasn't a real outstanding opening where he could've laid it off. Borderline greedy if you want to be picky but I think he is such an individual that when he isn't scoring he can look a bit selfish.

      Agree there was no problem with his decisions today. Every great striker pushes the envelope on this, riding the borderline and occasionally they go over, but of course it's not even a topic for discussion when he's banging them in.
