Fantastic performance, fantastic result.
Surprised at seeing so many neutrals comment on how well City played. I thought we targeted their weaknesses well but more importantly, we dealt with their strengths.
Apart from a couple of dangerous set pieces they put into the box I can't really remember them having many openings or changes. I can't remember Alisson having to pull off any world class saves or our defenders launching themselves infront of the ball or making last ditch tackles.
I thought klopp got his tactics spot on and got the better of pep and it's that simple.
Got to laugh at all the VAR idiots claiming the league is bent and it favours us. Rewind to last season and the same people said as soon as var is introduced Liverpool won't be anywhere near the top because of how lucky and spawny we are. And now VAR favours us and the officials are bent. The jealousy and bitterness amongst other fans is f**king boss, it makes me horny. Just accept we're the best team in the league dick heads.
Back to the game and it was just one of those matches were everybody pulled their weight and played a part. Nobody had a poor game, eleven hero's on the pitch who gave it their all and who wanted it more than they did. Nothing else to say. It was a great performance, well done lads.
9 points clear of city now. With their slug back four they will drop more points in the next few weeks (they have some very tough games coming up). That means we will have to lose 4-5 games minimum for them to catch us. I'm not getting carried away and but as long as jurgen and the boys keep focused and keep their nerve then we will win the title this season.
This team is special. This club is special.
Final note, brilliant to see Sean cox at the game too.
