      Didn't realize how good Trent was until I got home and watched the highlights back. Seemed to be a part of more or less every chance we had in the game, grabbed it by the scruff of the neck and put in a real Gerrard-esque performance.

      Thought we'd batter them to be fair but West Ham weren't half as bad as I expected them to be - Think it might have something to do with them playing away. Atmosphere at their place seems really toxic at the minute so it was probably worked in their favour being able to come somewhere with the pressure off and play their own game.

      Anyway, four wins from greatness!

      The danger with putting subs on so late especially  defenders is they are simply a mile off the pace and not upto speed perfectly epitomised  by Matips clumsy challenge when Antonio going nowhere which could have cost us

      I agree, its a tactic which I really don't like from Klopp and it almost backfired with Matip giving away that silly freekick right at the end, it would be much better to just push Bobby back into midfield and crowd out that area, whilst still having Mo and Sadio as attacking threats.

      Oh by the way the introduction of Ox changed the game, yes perhaps the second hammers goal woke us up but you saw immediately with Ox that the whole team just worked much better as a unit, linking up and movement etc. Keita was a square peg last night, just not on the same wavelength as the rest of the team at all, I really do worry about him as a player for us, I think we may need to move him on, perhaps try to get someone like Maddison in the summer.

      West Ham turned up for us but went hiding against Citeh, most seasons that would annoy me, but not this one ;-)

      In all seriousness West Ham are a decent team, I'm a bit puzzled why they find themselves in relegation danger, but I'm fairly certain that they'll be fine

      Just total mis-management I think. They do seem way to big too go down, especially with the new stadium & all of those expensive players. That said, I thought the exact same about Newcastle 10 or so years ago when they had the likes of Owen, Coloccini, Duff & Geremi - Stranger things have happened!

      A lot of posts  say we missed Hendo, 100% agree, just makes me think though back to 2014 v Man City when he was shown red. In my opinion, it wasn’t the slip, it was losing Hendo for three games.

      Said to my mates during the game, we were missing hendo.

      We got there in the end, and dominated, deserved win in the end.

      Hopefully we start to find our rythem now, weve been a bit sluggish since the break.

      Early riser today..makes a change. Klopp didn't have the ever realiable Milly so he called upon Matip, in part to bolster the defence against corners.

      But look at the urgency from being 1-0 or 1-1 to the way we played being 1-2 down. The difference was vast. Everybody was pumped up, the fans as well. It was frantic, it was if our lives depended on the result.

      In trying to define or explain when people say " we find a way to win" this game typifies the determination to find a path to victory. It's just a frantic desire to win. As if losing is deep deep humiliation and has to be fought against to the last breath, the last kick and beyond..

      Truely amazing...the desire to win that Klopp has instilled in this team...needs further research to fathom the magnetic phenomenon of Jürgen Klopp.

      Early riser ?

      Sorry but before Ox came on I had a lot of doubts we would win, even right up to that final whistle I was a bag of nerves as we were just not our normal selves and every damn ball was falling so nicely for West Ham. A huge sigh of relief at the final whistle, but great teams find a way to win and I have never seen a team with more desire to win then this Liverpool side, they are in such a good positive mentality, I think sports psychologists will be studying this for years.

      I can understand why Keita gets selected, his movement and distribution is excellent at times.
      Ox was a gamechanger when he came on though. Often he gives a drive from midfield other midfielders don't offer.

      Ox did well but we had upped the tempo significantly in the last 30 or so minutes. One or two a bit perplexed by Naby, although I think he's much better when we attack with pace a high tempo same as OX and really all the attack.

      Problem for Naby and Ox as well is that if it's not going well either could get hooked.

      Had the nightmare scenario of the Moyesiah getting his first ever win at Anfield.

      Thankfully we got our sh*t together in 2nd half and pulled out the win.

      Very under par performance, hopefullly the run of games we've got will get us back in the groove after the winter break.

      Id Rather Villa went down before the hammers. They are stealing a living in the Prem. With signing players like Mings and attesting him to be the next great England defender. FFS Have you ever seen a more over rated player. The mistakes the lad makes is the only consistency in his game. But when your Dad coaches Chelsea youth, and Villa's defensive coach is john Terry, it all adds up eh ! Put him in a side in Div 2 and he'd flounder. They deserve to be relegated for cheating higher quality players out of a game in favour of... well, talentless favourtism.

      West Ham is a much better side than Villa, Bournemouth and Brighton, I think they'll be safe. I think the game against us will have given them a lot of confidence, as off form as we were on the night they were actually pretty decent, with some solid defending and good attacks.

      Could well be right. I wasn't really matching them team for team...just my petty dislike of London clubs.

      Agree.  Can't really understand how they've got themselves down there, but I suspect it is down to a lack of firepower. 

      I do think the board there have no realistic idea for the future - they are badly run.  Considering they've got the deal of the century on their stadium, and a decent sized support, in the right hands they should be a top ten team in this country IMO.

      Id Rather Villa went down before the hammers. They are stealing a living in the Prem.

      Agree.  Lost any lingering interest in them when my fantasy league star John McGinn got injured.  I'm a big fan of the other 19 teams in the Premier League having no European Cups so that's another reason I want them back in the Championship!

      I meant I'm in favour of the eventual situation of them all being relegated.  Happy to start just with Villa being dropped this season and then pray for better fortune next season.
