      First goal was mainly Hendo not being up to speed and covering for Trent, followed by a good individual effort.

      2nd goal was some mixup between Virgil and Alisson. I think Virg thought Allie was coming for it and when he didn't he flailed at it, giving it away.

      3rd goal was Curtis, Neely on, not following his man (maybe confused w Can as to whose man it was, I may be wrong thinking it was Curtis' runner, but Klopp seemed to indicate this post match.

      Any issue with defending is a team issue, not a back line issue or a one player issue.

      I happen to think we are going to be playing in such a way where we both score and concede more goals this season. Get ready for a wild ride ladies and gents!

      I don’t remember Hendo being anywhere near their first goal or being at fault in any way, I’d have to watch it again. I do remember thinking Gomez didn’t help Trent out at all though and he let the man cut inside far too easily. The pair of them made a mess of it.

      Second goal falls solely on VVD. Alison could have helped him out by giving him a clear shout to get rid perhaps, but once it’s obvious your keeper isn’t coming for the ball then you deal with it, you’re taught that at a very young age. As we know, he’s a lovely footballer VVD, but sometimes there’s nothing wrong with putting your boot through the ball and sending it to row Z and that’s what he should have done there.

      Jones was definitely a reason why we conceded the third but I actually feel a bit sorry for him. He seems to have taken the flack because the scorer was essentially his man, but there were so many errors leading to that goal, starting with salahs poor attempt at holding the ball from the throw and letting the defender get in front of him with ease. He could have shielded it much better and won us a free kick there.

      All three were a shambles in truth and if we defend like that every week then we will struggle for top 4, never mind regain our title! I’m sure it’s something Klopp is seriously working on at present.

      Whole team defended poorly, the long balls that caught us out , should have been cut off at source.

      Midfielders have a responsibility to cover the fullbacks when they push forward and that was Hendo's side. That he was not in the area is part of the problem, and more than one comm, including Aldo, mentioned he was laboring in first half.

      I am remiss though in that defending is always a team deal, and that was the case Saturday. Shared responsibility.

      But it was a long ball forward played to their left wing. Hendos fairly quick but he’s not sonic. Agree he was poor though and shouldn’t have played.

      Come on, bruh. You have to pick up on this sarcasm. I wouldnt drop VVD from the squad if he were missing one of his legs, and I damn sure wouldn't say to play Sepp over him. I was just stirring the pot.

      We scored 4 goals on our first day back at work, for the 4th time in the past 5 seasons, despite everyone saying we didn't play well at the start of last season, and the one before that. Despite that, we've racked up 199 points from the last 77 league games. We are now 60 home league games unbeaten. It's an incredible record. Even without crowds, we still win our home games.

      Well done to Mo, for setting a new opening day record, and great to see VVD chip in with a goal as he did on Day 1 last season. Only 2 home wins, and 6 home goals scored from 8 games across the league. Our first two games are a chance to put 6 points on the board and build immediate pressure on our main rivals before they kick a ball, and the first 3 have been delivered.
