       :Still thought bobby gave the ball away too easily yesterday especially 2nd half. Got a bit sloppy and the substitutions stopped the flow.

      That was all a bit too easy never got out of 3rd gear and we dominated them. We’re on another level to Arsenal - Emery knows it and their fans do too.

      Thrilled to see Mo run circles around David Luiz....possibly the most overrated player in the PL.

      What amazes me when LFC play Arsenal is how wide open the field is for the good guys....as if Arsenal only play with 8. Verses other teams, it sometimes feels as if there are 15 defenders on the field.
      Happy to see LFC retain possession with their mids unlike most games when the back line dominates the ball.

      Ignoring his excursion outside the box that almost cost LFC, Adrian was tremendous in the first half and kept LFC in the game.

      Pepe is one fast dude.

      I don't get Ox playing left forward

      LFC defenders continue to rack up goals. Mids still blanked.

      Burnley plays Sunday (today) and  Wednesday before playing LFC next weekend while LFC has the week off again

      Very impressive display, shame about the goal at the end but otherwise very very good, plus we still haven't found top gear yet!

      Trent needs to stop giving the ball away so much. That's about the only criticism I have though.

      Well, that and VAR.

      I don't like it if that's how it's going to be implemented. About a 2 minute wait...for nothing. And did anyone notice it was immediately after that, that Hendo was caught in possession and Pepe almost scored?

      That might be Hendo not switched on, but my worry is that it was because of the pause on the play due to that VAR incident. Players might switch off and it breaks up momentum.

      Easy as you like really. Could have  been more. Sometimes we are too good for our own good and complacency sets in. We certainly coughed up chances at 3-0 up.

      Firminos flick for himself was the highlight for me. If that went in that would have been some scenes!

      People saying we've not hit top gear yet but at times yesterday we were going for the jugular in the press.

      Get the f**k innnnn....3 on the bounce!

      I have to admit, that first 30 odd minutes was doing my head in. Was like, get ball, pass out wide to Trent or Robbo, wait for cross to come in, Defender clears it then repeat. Nothing going through the middle until Bobby started to drop deeper. Really wish we had a fit and in form Keita, Ox or Lallana to play in that CAM roll.

      After that 1st goal went in, we really clicked into gear. The lads did us proud again, just conceding that goal and the last 10-15 minutes of squeaky bum time were the only blips on an otherwise impressive display from our lads. Keep it going boys, 35 W's to go!

      Cracking wiln. Was at a festival yesterday but spent most of the match refreshing my phone and staring at the match thread. Was particularly chuffed to see the lads pressing and harrying all over the pitch. They are pretty much suffocated them. Good selection by the boss to play Matip, scores the crucial opener and a couple of excellent tackles as well. He derserves to keep the shirt until Homez can prove he is 100% ready.

      Top of the league with three wins in the bounce, only team with a 100% record. Happy days!!

      On the up side, another full week of training and rest will hopefully see us go up another gear 😂

      Great win.

      Arsenal were dangerous on the break, but as usual have a dodgy defense, esp. when up against a team that press so well like us.

      Exciting thing after that win is we absolutely absolutely battered them, but my feeling was one of we could have played so much better.

      Seems like we still have a few levels to go up, but we are still far and away better than most teams.

      And Salah is looking rapid, fancy him to be hitting 35+ again this year if he stays fit, looks brilliant.

      We were totally in control of the match, to the extent we got a bit complacent at the end. The positive for me is that we are beating good teams whilst still being a bit disjointed, we will only get better as the season goes on!
      I know its still very early in the season but I dont feel that Citeh are at quite the same level as last year, even allowing for a bit of rustiness, they just seem a bit below par or perhaps teams have finally figured out that you can actually attack them and score or at least they think that they might as well try.

      I was very impressed and pleased to see the performance, we really controlled the game from the start which is something we have not done so far this season, we could of scored a few more goals with the chances we created. I thought it was a very good game from the trio of Fabinho/Gini/Hendo who all very lively, won the ball and were very good in possession. Firmino again looks extremely good, his first tough has been amazing this season and allowing him to control the game either holding the ball up or mixing with Salah/Mane in attack.

      Now on to Burnley!

      Fantastic win for us on Saturday. Controlled the game without getting out of second gear. As others have already mentioned, we're streets ahead of Arsenal now and it's just more evidence of how good a job jurgen klopp has done with our football club.

      As good as our win was and as dominant as we were, there were still minor concerns for me. I thought we gifted Arsenal a couple of golden opportunities which they should have put away in truth. Teams will always have chances in the premierleague but I don't think we're as solid as what we were last season just yet.

      This is no criticism of Adrian at all, he's a very decent back up goalie, but I do think Alison's absence is very noticeable and you realise just how good of a goalkeeper he actually is.

      Salah motm for me. That second goal of his was insanely good. And that's the thing about us. Our front three are that good that it doesn't matter what football match we play. It doesn't matter where we go. We will always be in a game with those three.

      Three wins from three, top of the league, it's all looking good. And we're nowhere near our best yet either.

      Just watched it again and for 70 minutes or so, we were even better than I remembered. Yes, Arsenal created a few chances on the counter, but for much of that time they struggled to get past the center circle. The work of Mane, Gini, Matip and Fabinho with the press in particular. Some of the passing from the fullbacks, Fabinho and Henderson, and the constant threat from the forwards.....!

      I watched Spurs vs. Newcastle Sunday and thought it was a decent game of football, but the entertainment value of our match is just so far beyond those, and I think that is much more than the impact of my fan interest being with our game. We've got something special going on before our eyes.
