      Atkinson made an important point on TAW, our left side was absolutely abject and offered nothing all game. Robertson and Mane stunk the place out...
      so we became even more predictable than we usually are...im still a bit concerned about where the goals are coming from other than Salah...

      We played against 12 in the first half and even though they had a man, correctly sent off (Not that those cu*ts in VAR had a clue, so put it back on the C**t ref) and against 11 in the second half.

      Tell me that C**t Ref isn't in there pocket, just like VVD and Joel had Lukaku in theirs!!!

      Disgraceful refereeing, if you can call it that!!! Every 50/50 went their way, he allowed the numerous times of time wasting by those cu*ts, falling down whenever they got the slightest touch or feigning cramps and then fu**ed us with 3 minutes and f**k all stoppage time.

      Seeing those Cu*ts celebrate like they won the league, pissed me off, switched it off and went to bed, angry!

      Thought Kostas on form should have been given a start. Wonder what that will do for his confidence?

      Same goes for Jota. Should have been in the starting 11 for me.

      F***ing sh*t, we have to stew on this now for what, 3 weeks? F***ing hate Internationals!!!

      Combination of good defending and poor creativity which is what resulted in the draw. These types of games very frustrating to watch as the boys are out there trying but nothing was coming off. Figured Klopp would of used Ox/Ketia off the bench or throw on Thiago after HT because we are knew Chelsea was parking the bus.

      I would agree with most it is two points dropped, not the end of the world but with international break this result will linger.

      Positives from the game for me, how quiet we kept Lukaku, young Elliot again playing some really good stuff, defo a star in the making this lad. Negatives, they were there for the taking, just couldn't find the killer pass, but they defended well with the help of a biased ref, thought he had a shocker, only 3 mins of added time after all that time wasting, and for me thought Mane was not at the races for whatever reason, just not the same player since he got covid.

      Chelsea is a hard team to beat when they sit deep. Feel some of the us are bit harsh on our players in this thread.
      I saw our team running their heart out. Some misses and few mistakes but overall we gave it everything.

      It's hard to understand. Yes Elliot is good but Keita is more experienced and should be playing if fit IMO. It was not a mistake not to play him but Keita should have started IMO. Klopp is ruining him..either he's good enough and he plays instead of a 18 year old or he should leave. Simple.

      Same for Origi.

      I would like to suggest that this loss of two points boils down to fault of Fenway Sports Group. I’m sure some of us would agree with me. ;D

      The long ball tactics by LFC in the first half were futile. LFC does not have the frontline speed to make it work. Didn't work last year, didn't work yesterday.
      Amazing Klopp and the team have so much faith in Elliot already. Clearly Klopp wanted to work the ball down LFC's right side and Elliot was fantastic.
      Another invisible outing (42 minutes) for Firmino, reminiscent of too many games last year. Mane was not much better.
      Robo and Henderson were showing a lot of rust.
      VvD was a dominant force all game

      And......for the first 45+ minutes, the ref was in Chelsea's back pocket.

      VVD and Matip took good care of Lukaku ,barely got a sniff ! Hendo looked out of sorts ,poor passing and shooting was well off , Thiago was a good substitute in this game ,referee's are still confused about what to let go and what to penalise

      Need to find more goals, if we are going to be genuine title contenders. Hendo clearly not at his best, although not the only player, off form yesterday.

      Elliot gives a bit more of a creative outlet than Naby - if it was away from home then Naby would have played.


      Yesterday 3/4 of the team played below par including the front three and yet we still didn’t lose

      Didn't play our best but got the point.

      I think Chelsea will be the toughest games we have this season home and away , as City are more open and let us play, so I'm happy enough with a point even with the 10 men.

      Sadio is still a bit of a concern but hopefully he gets some form.

      Elliott again doesn't look out of place in this team at all

      Our back is super solid, decent midfield but our front three needs to be more clinical.

      Our midfield needs to help the front three chip some goals. Henderson, Salah and Mane should all have scored from open play.

      Some people never fully put away their Bobby whipping stick. When Firmino went off, our attacking ideas went to sh*t.

      Hard to state that as fact IMO given Jota was facing an 8 man defence in the second half. Two different situations for the first and second half. I think they both had 6/10 games.

      Don't think the clamour from fans to give him a new long term contract is quite as loud this morning.

      This game needed Keita and his creativity. I would have subbed both Fabinho and Henderson at around 65th minute for Thiago and Keita.
