      We can only climb back into the top 4 race 1 win at a time. Need to keep players healthy over the break and hopefully do some good work in training to sharpen both attack and defence. We won the game which is the main thing, but it's not like we were airtight in the back or anything - definitely could have conceded on another night. We also created a set of decent chances, but the finishing needs improving as well.

      But like I said, job done and all that. There should be some lifting of moods after Budapest and tonight.

      Maybe Jürgen can try something like this for extra motivation

      Not a great performance but we got the W which is all that matters.

      Thought Phillips was superb again. TAA much better tonight as was Kabak.

      Thiago and Gini were poor, thought OX actually did well when he came on. Would like to see him get a few more starts think he still has something to offer this team.

      Front three all did their job. A few positives overall which is something after some of the recent results.

      We still have an outside shot at top 4 just need to keep grinding out those Ws.

      One thing that annoys me is us continually passing the ball to the side when we are in shooting range at the edge of the area. If you dont shoot you cant score! Klopp needs to address this ASAP. So frustrating!

      Cant complain too much though. 3 points in the bag + a clean sheet.

      What an ugly win. Just a hideous game to watch. However, we got 3 points, so..... Really do think we need to tell some hard truths this summer. Klopp needs to be ruthless and put his feelings to the side. Half the squad isn't good enough if you wanna contend next season and going forward.

      Jota Motm for the three points. Both Nat and Kabak are growing in their position.

      Brilliant game because we got what we when for.

      Watching in slow motion, it was a sublime left foot finish. Commentary saying the keeper could have done better but I genuinely think he wasn’t expecting Jota to strike the ball the way he did, absolutely fantastic.

      I think Klopp's "3 dirty points' analogy was on the money!"

      Team played well in patches but had either team been more clinical the result could have gone either of the 3 outcomes.

      Positives have to be the 2 CBs who are beginning to look like a partnership, that certainly bodes well for the run in.
      Trent's form continues to improve which is so crucial, similarly Mane is playing himself into a bit of form which we desperately need.
      And Jota injects some directness and invention into our play.

      The negatives for me were the midfield, those three were strong in Europe but last night Gini looked tired, Thiago always looked tired and Fab had to much to do trying to cover for Thiago.

      I love the way he passes the ball (although it wasn't great last night) but i think he is too slow and immobile for the frantic pace of English football. I was relieved when Klopp made the changes in midfield. Naby has looked quite sharp the last couple of weeks so maybe we will see him a bit more after the break (unless of course he gets injured!)

      Just great to get the 3 points though!

      Another win, what is the world coming to. ;D

      Fantastic, just having a steady partnership of actual central defenders and a class holding midfielder makes all the difference. onwards and upwards in April.

      Oh and Jota has given us another extra spark we new was missing.

      First off, glad to see the Wolves keeper is OK, looked horrendous but thank God he’s alright. We won, that’s all that matters, agree with Jürgen 3 dirty points, we’ll take that all day. A clean sheet is a big boost, Kabak and Phillips are really gelling as a partnership.
      I think there needs to be a conversation about offside, linesmen not putting flag up as soon as player is offside, caused last nights collision. The next player may not be so lucky!

      It was a hell of a strike but I never expect any good keeper to concede at his near post. Though, it was one sweet of a goal.

      Need to get all the points we can and 3 against a plucky and tricky Wolves side shouldn’t be scoffed at. In terms of performance we were lackluster not in our ability to create chances, Mane could have bagged a double but it was frustrating that with our best 3 available midfielders we couldn’t muster any control. All 3 were bang average and made it a scrappy affair with getting some of the basics wrong - simple passes, tackles etc.

      What really boiled my piss during the game is when your Sadio Mane bearing down in the box with a defender on the back foot you go straight at him in the box and either run around him l, through him, or have a f**king pop instead he stops and plays a flat horizontal ball to Robbo who’s cross hasn’t hit anyone in 2 months. Same as when your a Gini and your on the edge of the 18 with a few meters of real estate free between you and the nearest defender have a f**king pop. Instead he takes an additional 2 touches and lays it sidewards to someone else who also doesn’t shoot.

      We aren’t the most intelligent side at times I refuse to believe that’s a coaching instruction rather a poor instinct on players behalf.

      Quick edit - just seen a stat that we have scored 2 goals out of the last 70 shots -3% Grimm that.

      I agree our CBs done well last night, but with Wolves having three free headers, which thankfully went to Alison, or over the bar.
      Who went missing for that to happen, the CBs can’t mark everyone !

      We were far from our best but we still best a much improved Wolves side, that is very encouraging.
      Midfield was crap yesterday and forwards still sloppy but I'm encouraged for the run in, top 4 is still very possible.

      deffo something going on Mane should have gone down for a penalty and just then a first time pass would have put Mo in

      There could defo be something in this conspiracy theory.The more you watch them the more it seems they are not keen to put each other “in”.Also could Sadio be staying on his feet ( unusually) so Mo doesn’t get his pen ? If there were to be any truth in above, one of them would have to go methinks.☹️

      It was a very nervous performance that was initiated by our keeper from the minute go! However, the three points were very welcoming thanks to Jota, who he is getting sharper.
      The best players were Thiago, Jota, Fabinho, Trent, and the superb Phillips. 

      The World star Salah wasn't in it at all, and this is not new, he was awful, lightweight, can't dribble, and then dive! our clever Klopp who intends to build a new team around that shitty player, f**king madness. Salah's only contribution his involvement in the incident that led to the awful injury to Wolves' keeper.

      The team performance needs to improve ten folds before moving up the league table.

      Thaigo best player, you must be kidding, he was awful last night and Fabinho was off his normal game as well. In fact the entire midfield had a very average night.
