      Not ruined the weekend for the first time in a while! Not given me much confidence for Chelsea but great to get a win. Some minutes back for Milner and Naby and hopefully have Jota back for Thursday. Curtis and Trent were both excellent and good job the keeper. I thought Gini had a tidy game as well

      Surely we can’t lose at home again! Just hoping for a law of averages scenario 🙏

      Still a long way. This win means nothing if we don't back it up with further decent performances.

      It means we got three points more than if we lost this and on Thursday.

      Being a realist and taking into account the squad available, I'd be content with a point on Thursday after these three, today.

      What we needed. Good to get the clean sheet as well. Glad to see Milner back on the pitch - busy spell coming up, we are going to need to rotate. Keita should be handy for that as well. Hope Jota is at least on the bench on Thursday.

      I'll prolly get crushed for saying this, but in this state I wouldn't mind a draw Thursday. Certainly wanna win, but its about results from here on out. Draws against Chelsea and United aren't the end of the world of we win the games we're supposed to win. Be professional these last 12 games and get into top 4, the re group in the summer. Focus is the key word for the rest of this season

      Great start today.

      Don’t disagree but the # of games left is starting to get low so these head to head games become more crucial.

      I think we’ve got more chance of beating chavs, as they will play open footy. Don’t see them parking the bus.
      Defence still s bit fragile do Fsb will probably slot in and with Jotta likely to be back for at least a part of the game , we’ll have a bit more bite up top.

      Thing is, I usually go into the Chelsea, Untited games etc more confident than the 'should win' games, so I'd rather get all three because you know theres a high chance against those other teams with 11 players behind the ball, that you could draw.

      Very good performance from the lads tonight and I feel a bit guilty for half expecting to drop points when I saw the line up. Not getting carried away because sheff United are easily within the top 5 worst prem teams I’ve ever seen, but it’s a step in the right direction nonetheless and we’re back in contention for top four now.

      Nothing to say on the game other than it was a solid, professional performance. We could have half a dozen goals and won the game more convincingly if some of our lads had their shooting boots on. In particular Bobby, who missed a 1v1 and then later squared a pass across goal when he had a tap in. The time has come now for us to invest in a top striker but as we know, this would mean a big player of ours going the other way. But that’s another conversation for another day.

      Only other criticism I have really is kabak. Yes I know we got a clean sheet and yes I know he’s only been here five minutes but the bloke just looks completely out his depth to me. Just all over the place.

      Surprised to see young curtis get motm. Took his goal extremely well and had a fairly decent game too but I thought trent was superb tonight, really really good.

      Now bring on those f**king rent boys.

      Let’s be honest there was nothing too different in the performance from what we’ve seen the last 4 weeks - dominate possession, create, attempts at goal. The difference tonight was the rub of the green on both ends think it’s time the tide turns and things start going our way.

      Thought Kabak was all at sea on a few occasions and Philips although better of two was suited to the Pub CF Mcbirnie lost him for their best chance . Fab will play CB against Chad's just a question of who with

      I’m worried about Kabak to be honest especially against the pace of Chelsea. Don’t want to be on the young lads back but he made a few fundamental positioning errors and in the PL he doesn’t have the pace to recover from them. Would go with Fab and Nat on Thursday.

      Shout out to Adrian also to come in to the side in these circumstances and keep a clean sheet.

      or

      2. "Not even Out of Form Liverpool can Lose to THIS Sheffield United Team"

      Went for Philips MOTM , More than held his own and played well with the young Kabak, Liked our midfield with Curtis and Gini allowed to maraud and wander whilst Thiago held the gap between the front and the centre backs ,Nice  to have Jota back soon to give Mane a rest or Salah , decent performance though from the lads ,bring on the next game !

      Bit of both I think looked brighter think the weeks rest contributed to that but also thought they were poor . Can only beat whats put in front of you

      Let's take this positive into the next game and run with it!

      Jones and Trent stand out players for me.

      Nice to see Klopp change it up a bit with the formation also.

      Adrian: 6 - I don’t trust him at all and just the way he moves and dives looks all wrong, but thankfully he didn’t have much to do. He was better in the second half and swept up well on one occasion and dealt with a corner reasonably well.

      Trent: 9 - Tremendous performance. His passing was ridiculous. Didn’t have too much to do defensively but he was fine when called into action.

      Phillips: 6.5 - I like Phillips but I thought he struggled at times. Got turned a couple of times and it wasn’t his best day.

      Kabak: 7 - Shows his naivety at times but made some good recoveries. I like him but I feel he has mistakes in him. He’s a young defender though, so it’s normal. Hopefully he can build on this clean sheet.

      Roberson: 7.5 - He attacked well today. He hasn’t been as involved in our attacks over the past few weeks but today he was more involved and did well overall.

      Gini: 8 - I thought he did a good job as the holding mid. His running with the ball is very good and he doesn’t do it enough. Solid game.

      Jones: 8 - Well taken goal and some really nice touches. He looked good from the first minute.

      Thiago: 7 - Not his most influential performance but he was fine. Was generally good on the ball save for one under hit pass when turning, and although he gave away a couple of free kicks, they were good ones to give away.

      Salah: 7.5 - Good energy and some good link up play at times. Was unlucky not to score.

      Firmino: 7.5 - Played well in general but should have done better with his two chances. Good work for the own goal. Hopefully this gives him a bit more confidence.

      Mane: 7.5 - He was a menace. He’s been a bit quiet recently but he looked good today. General play was solid and he did some good work in his own half.

      Klopp: 8 - Team selection was no surprise as he didn’t have many options but the performance was much better. He had the correct approaches We started well and I always felt we’d be able to get the goal and win. Our intensity was better and we actually created some good chances today and could have scored more than we did.


      Looking at the poll for MOTM, 6.5 for Phillips probably won’t be too popular. I just didn’t think he had his best game, but of course it’s going to be difficult playing with a young defender and playing in front of Adrian. Maybe 6.5 is harsh but it’s my opinion. I was eating during the game so maybe I missed some of his better moments.

      Better performance tonight, against lowly Sheffield utd. Brilliant strike from Curtis Jones, fully deserving his goal. Defence obviously far from up to scratch with so many changes through injury, although a relief to see a clean sheet. Hope we can carry on against Chelsea, later in the week, which will no doubt provide a sterner test.
