      2-0 flattered United.

      Didn't see much wrong with Firmino's goal - looked more like Virgil was penalised for being a big b***ard.

      Alisson had a couple straight at him but don't remember us requiring any worldie saves. 

      Wolves away will be a more difficult test.  I don't think going 16 points clear has necessarily helped us either in terms of focus for that game.

      64 points from 66 is just incredible.  Lost for new superlatives these days.

      A bit of a tangent here, but I think the saves he makes are far harder than they might first appear.
      His positioning, timing, footwork and reading of the play in front of him are impeccable, so he's nearly always in position to make the saves appear easy.

      He reminds me a bit of Clemence in that sense.
      People thought Shilton was the better keeper, because he made a lot of acrobatic saves.
      Clemence didn't make as many because he didn't need to; his positioning meant he could make it look easy.

      I’m surprised VAR never ruled Salah offside for the 2nd goal.. 😂
      If twatkinson was in charge yesterday I imagine he would have tried or at least give mo a straight red for taking his shirt off.

      Nothing wrong with the challenge, De Gea failed to gather the ball and threw himself down intimating there had been physical contact, the physical aspect dictated Virgil would have the advantage contacting the ball which the goalie could not get a fingertip to.
      Replayed the incident several times and came to the same conclusion, also the manc tactic of mobbing the ref apparently can affect a VAR  decision.

      Almost made up for f**king up the tap-in earlier in the game

      This is the problem Salah has got now - Because of his superstar status & that impeccable first season every mistake he makes is scrutinized under a microscope. Of course he missed a sitter but he then scored a brilliant solo goal to wrap up the game

      Mane missed just a big a sitter himself but (rightfully) never got slated for it

      Not so much a microscope as all our forwards are superb but both Sadio and Mo are guilty of being very wasteful in front of goal lately, fortunately for us we have plenty of goal scorers at the moment, but there is a reason why none of our forwards are near the golden boot despite us having a record season as a team.

      Salah missing that chance is nothing new, even in his first season he was missing sitters like that.
      Seems to struggle when it’s put on a plate for him to have an easy finish but yet he will run the length of a half with the ball, weave past players, use his strength to turn to defenders etc before rifling one into the net.

      I’ve actually got to the point where I half expect him to miss that kind of chance but then also half expect him to find the net in the most difficult of scenarios.

      Never lets it bother him though, keeps on going and just makes him more determined it seems. Was it Salzburg? Missed about 4 glorious chances and then puts one away from the tightest of angles on his right foot.  Seems to be his thing.

      Can someone explain Mo's goal and Ali's assist to me? It obviously stood but Mo seemed offside when he received the ball if I'm not wrong.

      How do the offside rules work here? Did Ali take a goal kick and hence offside doesn't apply? Any insights will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Cant be offside if you are running from your own half when the pass is struck

      Mo was in his own half when the ball was kicked to him and therefore can never be offside, even if De Gea was also in the Liverpool box.

      It looked like right before Alli took that kick, Mata was flagged offside. I'm surprised the scum didn't complain saying he should have had to spot the ball for a free kick?

      Yeah..VAR come in again and rule the free kick should've been taken...but the ref has to blow his whistle for the game to actually stop..if he had Mancheater U would've had a case..

      We controlled the game from start to finish.   They had a couple of half chances but we could have scored 6 goals with chances to spare.   Another clean sheet that makes 7 in a row in the league and 11 out of the last 12 games, wow.  If anyone can pick holes out of this team then they need their heads checking.  It has been 30 years since the league title and aptly we are 30 points ahead of utd.

      I'm not concerned or angry that the KOP started singing "Were gonna win the league"!  I thought it was awesome. It was one of the greatest KOP moments ever. I loved it. It's not bad luck, or tempting fate. It was just pure emotion of a fanbase who have been waiting 30 years.
      Luck,fate etc,etc.... are just human constructs that are not real. Liverpool are currently on form to the greatest season in club history.  Let's enjoy it. I am and when I heard them singing it gave me chills. It was amazing.


      I remember singing that bloody song for a full 30 minutes after the match had finished in the away end at Craven Cottage after Yossi Bennayoun scored the injury time winner in 08-09 season. The players couldn’t actually come out to do their warm-down! The big difference now of course is that we are gonna win the bloody thing at last!

      Everyone has started feeling it now, plus that was aimed square at the 3,000 odd manc dogs in the away end.

      Tbf we were all still singing it marching out the kop and I imagine a few blasts in the pubs around the ground as well.

      Yesterday felt good!

      Caught the first half before embarking on a 10,000KM flight. I look at the league table about a dozen times a day, and I’ve been doing such for a good few weeks. Can’t believe the position we’re in, I’d say eight or nine wins and the league is ours. We’ve been waiting a long time, for some us it has been forever. Holy sheet, I’m excited! ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZ!
