      I actually have motm to Robbo, I thought most of our best work cane down his side and he put in several dangerous crosses. Also love how quickly he gets the ball out of his feet before bombing on. Turns out defence into attack so quickly

      Didn't think trent pushing forward and hendo filling in 2nd half particularly worked. Trent is better coming from deep and joining up play. Still. 3 points and on we go.

      Klopp:

      "It's easy to talk about the wind and stuff like this, but on the pitch the boys have to deal with it. We played, for sure, two or three or four long balls too many. The formation was not prepared for that so we were not there for the second balls and stuff like this. We didn't obviously feel that we can play the balls through the smaller gaps. That was the wind but it would be still right. The positioning was then not exactly like it should have been. For example, it was pretty obvious Trent's position in the first half was too often deep and wide instead of wide and high, which we changed, in this specific formation with 4-4-2 defending and Cantwell pretty much reacting on him like in a man-marking system. So, that gives so many different options then immediately.

      "Obviously our midfield was sometimes surprised by the long balls of our centre-halves and just couldn't push up early enough or quick enough, so we didn't win the second balls and all these kind of things. You need to get used to circumstances and after 45 minutes we knew how it feels. More information from us at half-time and we could improve, that was obviously much better then second half. We had so many counter-press situations where we won the ball back, where we put them under pressure, kept them under pressure and scored a wonderful goal. That's it."

      Clever push away between the two Norwich strikers.


      Norwich shouldnt be where they are in the table. 
      Not a tough game like Wolves but they were well organised.

      All credit to Norwich the way they tried to stiffle us in the first half, they certainly played a lot better than their league position suggests.
      But class always shows through in the end and with the majority of play we had over the 90 minutes, we deserved our win in the end.

      Mane for me turned the game when he came on, never looked like he'd had a break at all, came on full of power and stealth finishing, wonderful player to watch when he's on song.

      We move on as the Red Machine powers it's way through to the next game and I'm sure A.Madrid will have had one eye on our performance today.

      Well played Redmen, not the best, but this is a sign of champions, to get all three points without being at our best.

      Well hopefully that’s the one game to shake off the cobwebs after a lengthy break so we can start steam rolling teams again.

      Anyone know what Mo was up to when Sadio scored? Raising his arms and turning round to the linesman as if he wanted a foul given for the Norwich player  :lmao:

      There’s competitive and then there’s that.

      Some stats from the subreddit -

      Quote
      In the top five European leagues, Liverpool now have the best record by any club after 26 matches of a league season: W25-D1-L0. The previous best at this stage was W24-D2-L0 by Pep Guardiola's Bayern in the 2013/14 Bundesliga.

      http://Liverpool have now surpassed Nottingham's Forrest's unbeaten streak of 42 games. This is now the second longest unbeaten run in top flight history.

      10/11 - Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in 10 of their last 11 Premier League matches, this after having only kept one shutout in their previous 11 such games before this. Wall.

      We really could have scored a few more and it wouldn’t have flattered us. Personally tired of bus parking tactics but I guess it is what it is.

      Another three points and a clean sheet for Alisson. Henderson was a hungry dog, chased after each ball and kept ongoing. His passing is exceptional!

      Not the nicest football match in term of spectator wise but who cares?!

      5 more wins for the big one :)

      Great save from Alisson to deny them a great chance.
      Nice to see Keita start though thought his final ball was a bit rusty.
      And Mane clinical again.
      The run continues :) ...

      I'm a bit confused why some have said we have already qualified for CL, if Spurs win today then they are on 40 points with a potential 36 more points available, that means that if we lost every single game left and they won all of theirs plus them overturning our huge GD advantage then they could pip us to 5th place on GD. Obviously this won't happen but I was just a bit confused why it was being stated as fact.

      It's not 100% fact but as you say, it would require a lot of things to go right for others and wrong for us. We've already qualified anyway due to having won the competition last season so even if the worst happened we would still be in the CL next season.

      Never in doubt. Longer the game was going on I knew it was only a matter or time before we scored, and so probably did the players on the pitch.

      Captain MOTM by a mile, range of passing, work rate and assist for the goal. Difficult game to break them down but once again the mentality of the team shone through.

      I sat with my soon to be wife. We never watch football together because she hates it and she leaves me to it quietly however yesterday afternoon I had to cook her dinner and then had to watch it together.

      One thing she observes are the obvious ones that I brush off during games since I'm more focused on the result. She said that we were very physical and I told her we're not. This morning, I re-watch the second half and noticed Keita and Henderson putting challenges so to get the ball back quickly. We are a physical team, yes she is right (will never admit it to her :) ) but not a dirty one.

      The more games we win, the more games we are focused on the result not on 'class'. Do not get me right because we are the best team.
