      Don’t think Salah even made the most of it, he’s tried to move to the ball that he’s finally managed to get onto his left foot but if somebody is holding onto your chest area then that is going to be how to fall to the ground. Doesn’t fit the agenda though does it.

      He was fouled 2/3 times. Very poor defending. Shield the player yes but don't grapple him, arms wrapped round, pulling...balance is vital to players like Mo..what the hell does he expect from Mo...that invites the player to go down..yes Mo made the most of it..but he's paid to make the most of EVERY situation. It wasn't cheating it was rank bad defending.

      88 points and still could drop down to 2nd midweek...madness!
      It's crazy when you think of it. Most years 85786 points would win the pl before city started spending there billions.

      Good game that. Lads done well, once again. Gini was imensse, my MOTM. Milner came in and was as cool as he can be, sealing the game and that celebration, hilarious 😁

      True madness that it's not ours yet, but on to the next one.

      Oh and Warnock, one of the most unlikable, uncharismatic person I've ever seen.

      We go again Reds!

      Made up with that result,they fought for there lives as was expected but we fought harder and got the much deserved 3 points even sweeter it was against warnock,brilliant save from alisson and gini gets my vote for motm.

      Good performance, could have been more. Penalty was a stonewaller. Ridiculous the way the narrative around Mo as a diver has been built up. He tried turning out of the guys hold twice and couldn't. What the f**k else is he supposed to do at the third attempt? Clear foul - anywhere else on the park there would be no discussion. Christ you think of that penalty that was given against Lovren last year when he just rested his hand on the strikers back (against Everton was it?) - the pundits where unanimous that "you can't do that as a defender" etc. But you are allowed to put both your arms round a strikers chest and just hold him in place while he's trying to get past you? Don't think so.

      Gini MOTM for me, although I thought Sadio was really good in the second half - so strong and determined. Whole team played pretty well though.

      Must remember to give talksport drive a miss tomorrow no doubt durham will say liverpool were lucky. N complain Cardiff get no decisions. I like listening to goughie though more balanced view. 2-0 was perfect scoreline no injuries on a dry hard pitch. We were in command throughout. I don't hold put much hope for united weds but only thing is that for united its last chance saloon they have to go for it  even if they couldn't stomach us winning the league. The only decent Midfielder they have they won't play him herrera.

      Think Fabinho wasn't sure who he was for a while himself there. Hope he's ok. Seemed ok when he went off, but we were right not to take the chance.

      (Reminds me of the old story that Scottish based fans on here will know - about Partick Thistle manager John Lambie. One of his players got concussed during a match. As he gets back to his feet the team doctor tells Lambie that the player doesn't know who he is. Lambie says "tell him he's Pele.")

      My motm goes to Milner. When he came on he changed the whole momentum of the game. More direct football, instead of multiple passes looking for the perfect opening. I hope Milner stays, his experience is still much needed.

      This confirms you know nothing about football

      Was at the game (only 30-35 mins walk) and sitting in the Cardiff end (opposite the the dug out), and it was a joy to watch our world class players live... especially Wijnaldum who I thought was the controller today. What a f**king player!

      Me; "that would be me son, thought we were playing yesterday, got my days mixed up"

      Son; "fucks sake dad"

      Oh well, still watched, and got the win.

      Got mine out the way early for the Scum v Bitters game. I'm no fan of the blue bas**rds bit in the end it's quite funny to see that score line.

      We need United to be a lot better than they were today. Hopefully they get a pasting from everyone involved with the club and Arsenal losing will keep them interested enough to forget about us and concentrate on their own fortunes.

      Lose to City and they can wave goodbye to the top 4. A point or a win and they have a shot.

      Excellent result and good performance against a complete shithouse of a football team. Seriously - there was more grappling and groping from Cardiff in that match than a BBC charity function in the 1970s. The penalty was as stonewall as there could be - the only scary thing is that moron Atkinson wasn't picking up on it earlier (but as is the norm for Martin Atkinson he'll just make it up as he goes along).

      A f**king disgrace Cardiff are to the Premier League and a fine result for anyone wanting to see such shithousery banished from the league.

      Again,  another amazing performance from our club. This was one of those matches that just a few years back we would of lost points. But the talent and determination of this club is just amazing. Warnock's plan was to just park in front of goal and try and grab a point. Instead we were just relentlessly pounding on them. Should of had 2 goals in the first half.  Robbo with that miss and both Mane and Salah were just not getting that last little touch.  It seemed the ball was just alive. It also seems that the football gods are with us too...how Morrison missed that header is proof of that.
      MOTM.  I gave it to Mane. He was just relentless. Fought for every touch. Harrassed their back line. Just a dynamo today.
      Great win. Keep pressure on City and let them mess it up.Im really hoping United find some balls and play football. But, United are a team of selfish children who prefer to post fashion updates.

      It will feel. Weird cheering United on weds. They were hopeless today so much for soljkaear the messiah coming in. I see all United fans on forum say there 100% behind city. Arch enemies n top four up for grabs and they don't care. I wonder will ollie put a few younger guys out as fans have been calling for. If they had won today they be saying oh chelsea is the six pointer but now they have to win them all. They look resigned to failure unless 100% improvement and City are off it a bit.

      Absolutely. Hope they go down for good.

      We got 3 points that’s what matters, move on to the next one.

      Big family dinner, lots of food, alcho, stuffed to the brim but was keeping an eye on a TV with the sound down and saw the goals but can't say I know how the game went, hoping to catch the highlights later.
      All credit to Jürgen and the lads, they are doing all they can do, 3 more points and pressure back on the little f**king turd and his oil funded mercenaries.
      Manure [unfortunately?] are f**king sh*te but you never know, maybe in at home, and in a derby they can dredge up some kind of a performance that resebles a half decent football team - but it'll have to be a lot better than today.
      Such a two horse race, hard to see who the f**k is going to beat either team.

      Actually thought we're were way below par today, struggled with MOTM  as I don't think anyone played extremely well. Don't need to play very well to beat this Cardiff team though. Like most games this season, was never worried about the result.

      I'm going to go our on a limb and say, even though we were poor today and this side has won nowt, it's maybe the best Liverpool side I've ever seen. We won when we're good, bad or ugly. I say this based on the fact that watching them this season has been so serene, others have panicked and worried, I've just been calm, knowing we'll win games, early or late. This is a stunning team, enjoy watching them, give them the praise they've earned and smile.

      If this goes to the last day and we're pipped by one point you hear United fans and Everton fans gloating all over the place. United fans won't be talking about how sh*t there team is they won't care. Even when United won all them leagues under fergie majority of winning goals were scored well into injury time fergie time when fergie was the ref. I think that year under benitez we scored a lot more than them and much better goal diff.  and only finished 2 points behind. The media then never mentioned the eight or ten minutes of injury time sometimes played till united got the winner. But its brought up about salah every week. We deserve this pl a proper football club. I remember time we beat I think Blackburn on final day when it could handed United the title but we didn't care we still went and won. I hope united don't do a cop out on weds and roll the red carpet out. Top four should mean something to them no matter how bitter they are.

      All we can do is win.

      I went with Matip as MOTM, but I thought about Firmino, who was influential in winning possession and building up the attack.

      Plenty followed Snivelle..he picked out Matip as MOTM. I went for Gini. But the way Matip brings the ball out of defence and makes inroads into the opposition is impressive. He runs at teams, and it will eventually lead to something.

      He starts these runs from the half way line and nobody is quite sure what he is going to do. Couple of times he laid it off but on one occasion he very nearly went thru everybody. He's gone from being behind Joe and Lovren to being a hard man to leave out.

      Probably most improved player this season.
