      Mo's or Daniels wonder strike equaliser, the last time we met?
      I think I prefer Daniels.


      Both great shots, Mo’s was all power, all laces, and Danny’s was a great dip to get into the top corner.

      I’ll take Mo’s right now on how we are in the league table, not taking anything away from Danny’s goal.

      The intensity of our play in the second half was immense. Looking at the table we have drawn 7..City have drawn 2. Which indicates teams play harder against us or we haven't killed teams off or kept up the intensity.

      City have scored 86 to our 77..that might indicate they kill teams off better than us and indeed we have had to get the winner late on a good few times. One things for sure we won't be lacking in intensity for the last 4 games.

      Might also indicate they have infinite money and are better at intimidating other teams by fair means or foul.

      I remember seeing that and was brilliant! Not only did he make a show with his hand gestures, he deliberately slowed the game down which the rest of the players followed.

      My MotM was Salah - but Keita is starting to look like the Dortmund Keita at last. Brilliant and intelligent by the little fella.

      Just gone for Mo for my motm. Not just for the stunning strike but for his non stop never say die attitude throughout the game.
      Yeah Hazard had a couple of chances, and everyone saying,
      Oh yeah but what iff ?
      Well we had more chances, so yeah, what iff.
      Thought that was the game we needed to win as our Prem final, well we did win, I got a perfect in the predictions so that’s even better.
      Now I think we’ll go on and win it.
      Got my rooms booked for 12-13 May in the city, and don’t see any reason to cancel 😁
      Prem C L double coming up then 😂

      My MOTM....Fabinho....but so many were deserving.
      Chelsea gave Fab space which allowed LFC's offense to generate from the midfield ranks for a change and Fab easily had his best game. Smart decisions...total control.

      Mo was awesome as well. His work rate is always unmatched. The fact the both Mo and Mane could run past Chelsea's backs at will was a bit of a surprise and an area Chelsea should address this summer. Mo's strike was easily his cleanest/most powerful strike in a season when his space has been so limited.

      LFC's current brand of ball is 10 out of 10.
      Klopp has opened up the offense at the most important time of year and the back 4 + Allison have managed to limit damage though they have looked vulnerable at times. A risk/reward calculation necessary right now as LFC charge forward toward 2 trophies. So freakin exciting

      Final hats of to the captain. Big offensive plays in 2 huge matches. Love his mindset matched by his teammates.

      Did get the drop on us twice and he very nearly scored. I mean top quality players will create something out of nothing. Hazzard gave Matip the slip, made a blind side run and hit the post, and mishit the second chance.

      But did he dribble past Van Dijk? Which is what my post was actually about.

      One thing I'll say is that I'm surprised there weren't more votes for Firmino. He was absolutely outstanding in that second half and it seemed he didn't give the Chelsea midfield and defence a single moment's rest.

      Lovely to see Hendo get the votes though - he was right in their faces and his defensive positioning was superb.

      Still absolutely buzzing from yesterday. One of the best memories I've had as a Liverpool fan being there to see that goal and the minutes afterwards was something special. Primal noise!

      According to BBC a flare was thrown into some Chelsea fans after our first goal, whoever did that should be in huge trouble. A child needed hospital treatment.

      Had the immense pleasure of sitting in the Kop for this one with brother and sister. Shredded voices at the end of it all - wonderful atmosphere and an awesome second half display. I would love to tell you more about the Salah goal but it was all a bit of a blur. Sheer bedlam as it hit the net. Fantastic moment that I'll treasure for a long time.
      Amazing mate, must be quite a memory. First and only time I’ve managed to make it to Anfield was when Salah scored a brace against Spurs, including that brilliant solo goal. That match was a draw and the points weren’t half as important as they were last night but it’s a memory that’ll stay with me, so I can only imagine how you feel.

      Got the drop on Naby once and a sleeping Matip twice never got anywhere near big Virg.

      No idea if true.

      In his interview after the game, he said he did that bcos he is practising yogo now. Mo did not elaborate further why he is practising yogo. Probably to calm himself down a bit to stay focus in his game. That's just a guess.  Remain focus he did and he scored a stunning goal.

      I can't see it there form is awful. Even ole said be his worst nightmare we win. I hope ta f**k your right but can't see it. City will roll them over. Teams seem to not even want to go toe to toe with them. Can they not take a leaf out of Swansea book and go at them. They did and should have beaten them.

      United will be trying 100%
      Their fans will want to win 100%

      I remember back in 95 when we were playing Blackburn last day of the season and the potential was there that if we won it may hand United the title.
      I remember 100% wanting us to win, that was all that concerned me, us winning a game. Because I take more joy from Liverpool winning than another side losing

      I know United fans and players will eb exactly the same. The idea they will roll over and want to lose is laughable

      If they're good enough is another thing but they will want to win

      I'm not sure if they drop points from here.. I'd imagine they will and this week looks like the key week for us if they will.

      But whatever happens I'm not having that anyone thinks we've failed this season
      Finishing 90+ is not a failure

      Again anyone who thinks it is is an a fool

      I'm not justifying this whatsoever and I agree if they're found they should be punished

      But for context the kid was treated for a panic attack not anything physical

      Yes, it's true. 

      I told my son at the time and he was impressed when Salah referred to it being a yoga pose when interviewed after the match.
