      A very good sum up Bmck, if I was the Ox, Keita or Divock I would be sending out a message to the boss that in my performance you've just seen there's absolutely no way anyone is getting my shirt, unfortunately the skill, the desire, the quality of play wasn't there, and that goes for Fab as well.

      Well thought Naby did OK, kept going and a nice pass to Sadio for the goal. The other two were passengers.

      Boring game really until mane’s goal. Delighted for Curtis Jones, great weekend for him.

      Origi gets his chance and produces that ? Upgrade needed in that department for sure and Klopp definitely more than anyone knows that.

      Alisson’s save at the end, brilliant.

      89 points 5 games to go is some achievement.

      Dont get me wrong, I thought he did OK as well but if I was Naby I would be thinking, right this is my chance, there's now way Jürgen is giving Gini my shirt, this is the biggest club in the world and I'm keeping this shirt for the foreseeable future.

      First half Fabio holding with Nabby in no mans land really. The Ox was supposed to be the outright attacking midfielder but he didn'r really do much. Then Hendo & Gini took over and they know their way round Anfield blindfolded...with Nabby higher down the left side of mid and that's his best position..in real support of the attack, probing, pressing,extra man in the box as and when...and he did well.

      And when he gets a decent run in that higher position I think we'll see the best of him but now Jones is a real alternative as the attacking midfield player. It's the Ox who concerns me..lot of iffy games.

      Yea, me too. Needs to buck up in a big way. Playing like he is now I'd have the young lads on ahead of him.

      Ox was pissing me off the amount of times he was giving the ball away, seemed incapable of doing a simple pass, players were running past him, his positioning was poor and generally stunk the place out.

      But the stuff we played behind Origi was so stifled and staid the ball was dead by the time it got to the front 3. Yes he didn't do well but Mane & Salah were the same for 50 mins..largly due to lack of pace and urgency, invention in that first 50 or so. Agreed a move might help Divock and the club.

      I'm being very greedy I know but heart says I'm gutted we are out of the CL but head is saying the break from over two years of high pressure games will do us good.
      I'm thinking this year any team still in CL won't get any sort of pre season and the seasons will pretty much run into each other I'm thinking mid September the PL will restart.
      If you'd have asked us in August you can have one trophy the answer would be obvious as to which one but with us being reigning European Champions and going out basically to goalkeeping errors it still stings.. I think we are the best team in Europe on our day with our first XI, the rest will have breathed a sigh of relief when went out, I think it's only one leg games also.

      Agree but even then in the first half Origi was dropping as far as the half way line at times for no reason at all and he really is not much use there. I don't mean move him on because having a big squad is important and he is handy for the league cup and early round of the FA cup etc what I mean is we need another attacker that he needs to be an upgrade on Origi, god forbid Salah or Mane are sidelined with an injury for a period next season.

      When he does find his form he suffers long term injury. Ox hasn't done himself any favors since the restart pushing for more starts, time goes on for us he cementing his place as a versatile squad player.

      Don't know what Naby people watched, other than the pass on the goal I thought he was poor as the rest of the guys.

      Did what we needed to do, Ox worries me at times, just disappeared today after giving the ball away a few times.

      Naby played well, great ball to Mane and brilliant finish from Sadio. Great to see an appearance and goal from Jones.

      Alisson keeps proving why he's the no. 1 keeper in the league.

      Me too. When he's on it he gives us something none of the other CM do but he's been poor for a while now and like you say if it doesn't happen for him early on in games he just disappears.

      Ox was brilliant before his horrendous knee injury. He somehow has to rekindle that to keep his hand on the shirt.

      Distinctly average for the first 50 mins or so, as were most of them.Picked it up as we shifted up a gear or three and did well but again he's not making it very very difficult for the Boss to leave him out.

      This is in a sense is what the Boss is saying to the Ox as well and both do well at times, the Ox less so lately, but they aren't cementing their places. Jones is going to overtake both and he has the confidence of youth to try things and if he proves he can do it the Boss should give the lad his head for sure.

      The real plus in this seemingly rather dour game, a goal for Curtis Jones as well as some quality saves from Alisson Becker.

      I mean it's probably a bit to early to start making extravagant claims about Jones but he could be a genuine box to box top class midfielder in the making. I'm sure the Boss will manage him in the right way. One things for sure Jones doesn't lack confidence, confidence of youth maybe.

      And there is a place in midfield up for grabs. The Boss has 2/3 goes to get in that driving attacking force from mid, almost yer could say since Coutinho left. Nabby, Ox, even Shaq...while he has had some joy none of them have really cemented their place.

      The Boss has juggled the midfield pack brilliantly this season but it's an evolving situation.
