Liverpool fans review last night’s Champions League action and look ahead to a massive weekend in the title race, Arsenal readers preview tonight’s Europa League quarter-final second leg with Napoli, and Chelsea supporters discuss the futures of Mateo Kovacic and Willian – all in Your Says of the Day.
Much better 2nd half, yet still a lot of bad passes all round.
In the end it was an easy win & we had full control, I don’t think our team will be very tired after this match.
Great win. Next round and we certainly can give Barca a game

Great night of football. Do think though that city will look to punish spurs at the weekend, hoping they go into meltdown but it’s unlikely. Thankfully spurs and utd have a lot to play for and shouldn’t roll over. Some season.
Spurs will need the three points against City, it will be a interesting game for sure… I still think City will rebound with a win
I’m not so sure.
I can see this knocking City a bit.
The CL is everything to them, both as a club and individuals within the squad.
Leeds have gotten further in the CL than them. The likes of Aguero, Silva, Fernandinho etc have never played in a CL final. Their personal ambitions will be to at least play in one of not win and now this is another opportunity gone with them in their 30s.
And who do they play next? The very team that’s put them out. The team that’s ended their dreams. The teams that knows how to get at them. The team that needs points to ensure top 4.
I just wouldn’t be too convinced that City will win this league game. Can see them being flat.
I’m not confident Spurs can even get a draw on Saturday to be honest. From watching the highlights it seems City carved Spurs open like a hot knife through butter. Will Spurs be able to keep up the performance they displayed last night on Saturday? I doubt it, I think their performance will take a hit and they do not have the squad depth to compete with City’s.

As with everyone else I am not at all confident. Our away form has been rubbish but my only thought is its not too bad when we are playing decent teams. Not that I think we will win but feel we wont get hammered. If we score I think that will be enough. Again no idea on the team or formation but think he will try and surprise them and I have sneaky feeling he will go with the same 11 as the first leg. I would personally go with Miki and Iwobi behind laca and then Ramsey Tor and Xhaka. the same back five as last week except Kosh for monreal.

Kovacic – has been a terrible loan he has literally had less impact than Bakayoko.
Willian – I think it’s time to go a different direction. His 1 Premier league goal since late October is just not good enough output from an attacking player for a team chasing top 4.
Zappacosta – I nothing against the fella but he is never going to be a regular and he is blocking the way into the first team for Reece James or Ola Aina. I’ve watch a lot of Wigan this year and Reece James is a full on beast. He is Wigans best player every game and he got in the Championship team of the year. Last season Reece James was also Chelsea Academy player of the year in the same academy as CHO.
Willian: keep. He loves Chelsea. Has to improve though. Higuain out. Pedro out. Kovacic out, he’s blocking RLC and Barkley. We’ll have Mount too and probably Bakayoko next season. Alonso keep.
Willian can play on the left or right so I see him as decent cover for CHO and Pulisic or even starting and alternating more with CHO. We should also remember that Pulisic will be new to the league and so we have no idea how long he may take to settle in…? KTBFFH
Just thinking that if Sarri moves on or is sacked then maybe Jorginho will be surplus to the new gaffers requirements….

We have to look at Ajax and copy that organisation. We have a disneyland football club and the players are wearing donkeysuits!
Every talent at Ajax, and there are number (what a talent Ziyech is and De Ligt is a monster), will be stripped away by the big clubs in Europe just like Monaco was. And just like Monaco, we’ll get none of em. We’ll still be pondering a move for Gareth f**king Bale.
Spot on mate,just throwing money into the pit will never solve the problem! We need a long-term plan,a vision.We have to forget the quick fix and focus instead of building a system that will benefit the club long-term.If DDG & Pogba want to go,so be it-nobody is bigget than the club! Thinking/dreaming that we will win the title in 2 years is fantasy,simples! Deadwood have to be let go:Jones,Smalling,Young,Valencia,Bailly,Mata,Herrera,Matic,Sanchez,Lukaku,Darmian,Lindelof,Lingard,but it wont happen in one window,unfortunately for us.Short-term we are going nowhere!
Agree N1xer, but Arab money speeds the process up mate. City have bought and sold several squads worth’s before finally getting it right. I say again though, we’ve got to buy players who are mobile and flexible enough to play forward or back and who are comfortable in possession. City, like Barca, flood the middle of the park and dominate midfield. Even Messi’s starting position is midfield. 4-3-3 is a joke system.
I’d take both Rice and Ndombele N1xer as holding / box to box type midfielders, plus a super quick genuine wide midfielder and a playmaker out of the Xavi mould. If Pogba stays, he gets a free role and that’s your 5 across the middle. One 20 a season man up front with genuine pace, and that’s not any of Martial, Rashford or Lukaku for me I’m afraid. In fact, talk of Barca bidding 100 mill for Rashford – i’d drive him over there myself. And if it sounds like I’m obsessed with midfield, it’s because I am. By the way, did you notice Jordi Alba last night? Got up and down more in one night than fat Luke does in a season. Desire!
