What a fantastic game of football, Milan to be fair to them took their chances when we got lacklustre, but for ten minutes of that game we were by far the better side, but again credit to Milan for holding on in what was to them the Alamo, right from the Ref’s first toot we were at them squeezing, pressing and almost almost battered them into submission,
I said earlier that our pressing game will improve the older the season gets, and tonight showed that exactly, we will take some beating we will, I doubt there’s another side in Europe who can press like we can,
We just need to be more clinical and those missed chances will become less as time moves on, on another night we could have been 4/5 up at HT, we battered Milan for 30 mins took our foot off and let them in,
Personally I couldn’t fault any of our boys everyone to a man played well, my MoM was Fabinho, to me he is without doubt the best DM on the planet, he is just simply immense, Matip was brilliant again and Gomez was excellent considering his first outing this season, Robbo & Trent were fantastic and Salah again showed why he is the one of the best forwards in the world, Jota was excellent and Divock played well, that pass for Salah was world class, and he for me proved that there is room at the inn for him in a Klopp side, Henderson skippered the lads with typical gusto and his strike was Gerrard-esq, Ox, Jones , Milner & Thiago did what they had to do and helped close the game out ,
Three points at home is pivotal and we done that, I was mightily impressed tonight despite being without Virgil,Bobby, Mane,Thiago at the start and of course wee Harvey, I predicted a 3-0 win and but for our ‘taking the foot off’ that would have worked out nicely.
Good win good start, now let’s keep it going, got a good feeling about us this season.
