      This tie with Milan reminds me of when we faced Real Madrid under Brendan Rodgers, with Milan playing the role of that LFC side this time around.

      At the time Real were at the top of their game with a world class squad, whereas we had just made it back to the CL after about 5 years out (Milan are back after 7 out). Unsurprisingly Real dominated both fixtures, and I see the same thing happening here unless the last game is a dead rubber.

      Great to see us dig down and get a result after a kinda of sucker punch at the end of the first half giving away both those goals despite controlling the game. Much like the Leeds game we could (prob should) been 2 or 3 up after 30 minutes with the chance we created. Nice to see Gomez back playing and really enjoyed that flick pass from Origi on the Salah goal.

      With a draw happening in the other match it does shape out well for us early on in the group.

      A hurried team display that it was littered with too many mistakes and awful finishing (chronic problem), however, we won.
      The clumsy Matip was at fault with the two of Milan's goals, we could have lost this game easily! 
      The outstanding player was Fabinho along with Henderson. Thiago is a great asset for LFC on and off the pitch, he encourages all the players from the sub-bench, and when he is on the pitch, excellent attitude.
      Origi remains a dud, he was awful no contribution whatsoever, he was in the team by name and not by effort, no wonder no clubs come for him.

      Good luck lads against Palace.

      Well I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish (the highs and the 5 to 10 combined minutes of lows).

      If you gained very little enjoyment from a match like that, then football probably isn't for you

      Jürgen picked a good team last night and the team didn't let him down ! but what a bench we had too!, world class players ready to step in and keep the game safe or up the tempo ,I still think Fabinho and Thiago are the best combination in midfield but Keita did put a shift in first 60 minutes ,Ox needs to take his chances and play with a little more confidence ,that's my only criticism of a dominant display

      Spot on on everything you just said. That team display in the first 40 minues was rubbish, nothing but shots and corners. As for the 2nd half, dont get me started took ages to level the game and then we done nothing until Henderson scored, after that we were lucky to hang on.

      Crowd were sh*te to and Klopp, how hes still in the job I dont know. Need more then good luck v Palace

      Imagine being Brown1… a non LFC fan, coming to a LFC forum, pretending to be a fan, to talk nonsense, in hopes of getting a reaction and negative attention because any attention is better then none… it’s actually hard to imagine…

      If Origi did nothing at all according to you, who the fcuk made Mo's goal ?
      You really are a first class buffoon.

      Apart from the few minutes where the midfield seemed to stay too high at the end of the 1st half I thought that was a great game of football.
      Very open attack for LFC. Attack for Milan.

      Should have been 2 or 3 nil before some of the players seemed to switch off,
      but they got away with it thanks to a great 2nd half (and Hendo wonder strike).

      Thought the pressing was excellent.
      Some issues with being too slow playing out from the back but VVD solves that when he plays.

      Thought it was a great game to watch but would have been terrible to lose, we can't go on like this need to be more clinical in front of goal and solid at the back, that said thoroughly enjoyed the game going to be a tight grou

      Entertaining match although could have done without the near coronary before half time. Origi apart from the assist played better than he has for ages. Willing to run and hassle off the ball. Haven't seen that from him for many games. Everyone else pretty well on it, and we could have been 5 up in 30 mins. Just lost our mojo for 10 mins.
      All in all a deserved win and a valuable 3 points in the bag with the other two in our group drawing. Getting better game by game. Someones gonna get a beasting soon.

      Salah missed a penalty, the ball popped and Hendo scored his first CL goal for 7 years. A game of rare events.

      Love the wide open nature of these European matches, especially early on in the group stage. With only 6 games to secure advancement, ties can be crippling, especially for the home teams.
      LFC earning 3 pts while two teams in their group split two points was the best possible scenario for LFC after 1 week.

      Quote from Robby The Z
      Actually beginning this season they won't matter in the knockout rounds, either.

      I think it was the right call to scrap that one. It's main impact was to keep home teams from attacking with full vigor.

      It's still doing it.

      Atletico 0-0 Porto
      Kiev 0-0 Benfica
      Lille 0-0 Wolfsburg
      Bruges 1-1 PSG
      Seville 1-1 Salzburg
      Chelsea 0-1 St. Petersburg
      Inter 0-1 Real

      You can get rid of away goals, but you can't force teams like Atletico to attack with vigour.   It used to add spice to the head to head aggregate in the group stage such as that night v Olympiakos or to a lesser extent, that night v Napoli. But with it gone, it gives even more incentive for bus parkers to sit in for the full 90 minutes, home and away.

      As for this game, the line up was all over the shop. No VVD, no Hendo, no Thiago, Origi, Gomez, a new centre back partnership, what's going on?? It seemed like the Norwich game was a week early. When the penalty was missed, it looked like a turning point and sure enough by half time, the game had turned. But we know we can come back against them and Hendo and Salah came to the rescue. If we collect the 6 points from the Porto games,  we should have qualified before we go to Milan on the last night of the group. In the meantime they can always, go back to Italy.
