The main strength of this side isn’t that we’re the best team man for man, but that every player puts a shift in. And if only a few don’t put a shift in, the system comes crashing down. Seems Henderson’s galvanising abilities are even more important than I thought.March 3, 2020 at 9:48 pm #1831948
Mikus I agree with that but its also the balance of the team, they gave Williams plenty of space all night long and we could not do anything with it… I don’t want to single anyone out right now, Chelsea simple wanted it more than us…March 3, 2020 at 9:59 pm #1831954
Not an awful lot between the two teams to be fair.
We made a few mistakes, and weren’t aggressive enough in midfield. Probably not the ideal game to throw Jones and Minamino in. But fair enough, we need to give them a chance. Jones defensive play lacking a bit. He’s comfortable on the ball, but he’s been a bit selfish at times with the positions he’s going in to.
Well played Chelsea though, deserved winners.
Two defeats in a row, three in four games. We need to see a big performance in the next game.March 3, 2020 at 10:03 pm #1831955

Commiserations lads. You’ll bounce back you’re too good not to.March 3, 2020 at 10:05 pm #1831956
Can’t understand how Barkley was allowed to run with the ball that far untouched.March 3, 2020 at 10:16 pm #1831958

Cheers 9 though I suspect you were as surprised at Barclay scoring as we were, he doesn’t normally have 1 good game in 20 so to get a goal like that (especially as an ex bluenose) is doubly galling but overall you were the better team, good luck.March 3, 2020 at 10:45 pm #1831969
Ginger>> Barkley was allowed to run that far with the ball because it was Fabinho that was ‘chasing’ him. I’ve been saying since the start of his Liverpool career that Fabinho has a monumental problem of players running past him so easily in midfield and that he has no pace to catch someone that has. Barkley was faster with the ball than Fabinho was without it! We just about got away with this weakness when the other aspects of his game were working OK; but since his return from injury, he’s been poor all round to the extent that him occupying this pivotal position in the team is really now costing us.March 3, 2020 at 10:46 pm #1831970
Wondered what u lot thought of Billy Gilmour? He bossed the midfield. Ur definitely missing Henderson. Anyway the league is yours. Good luck against Atletico, hope u can get through Simeone’s massive Airbus A380 that he will no doubt park on the Anfield turf.March 3, 2020 at 10:49 pm #1831972
Thought things were going well in the 1st half, but in the 2nd we were dreadful.
Midfield completely overrun.Fabinho once beaten is then left for dead.
Last four games not good reading, played 4 lost 3 goals F3 A 8, not scored in three of the games, hopefully we can up our game but it doesn’t seem likely.
Our performances have NOT,NOT,NOT been bad since the break it has been the last 10 games.
Definitely VVD has been brilliant all season but seems to be off his game at the moment.
Bournemouth next, surely we will win this???????March 3, 2020 at 11:45 pm #1831976
You’ve got to admire that performance from Billy Gilmour.
Although I don’t think he would have fared so well against Henderson and Gini.
Take nothing away from him though, he ran circles around Fabinho. Not sure he’s ready for Premier League football, but good luck to him, as a fellow Scotsman I hope he will become a top player.March 4, 2020 at 7:08 am #1831979

Gilmour did very well. Just sat in front of the defence and was excellent on the ball
High line was dreadful the last two games and seems to be higher then usual. Teams are bypassing it no bother these days.
Chelsea fully deserved to win.
Saturday is absolutely huge nowMarch 4, 2020 at 7:42 am #1831987
Another disappointing performance and the 3rd defeat in 5 games. Players lack of inspiration, creativity, passion ans desire. 5 goals in 2 consecutive games show that our defence has great problems and VVDS was poor (again). I do not think that we can pass Atletico and our performance have been extremely worrying.
Probably 22 points gap from City has made us bad.
Congrats to Chelsea for the win!!
I am glad that other teams fans are excited with our defeats something which show how ‘good’ their teams are.
Besides I hope that Klopp has witnessed our disadvantages in order these to be solved in summer with signings.March 4, 2020 at 8:06 am #1831991
Time to end this blip, by crushing Bournemouth and going through against Atletico.
Need to get our winning mentality back on track, and quickly.
I think Matip should come in for Van Dijk on Saturday to keep him fresh for Atletico. He looked completely shattered yesterday.
As for Henderson, even fans of other teams (like Stuilse) can see how much we miss his energy and leadershipMarch 4, 2020 at 8:15 am #1831992
Probably VVD needs rest but I do not know in whivh game?? Bmouth or Atletico??
If we do not pass Atletico then FA cup defeat will be worse.March 4, 2020 at 8:21 am #1831996
Matip for Van Dijk on Saturday is the way to go, so as to keep Van Dijk fresh and hungry for Atletico.
I actually think a Matip/Gomez partnership would work quite well, especially in a lower risk game at AnfieldMarch 4, 2020 at 8:22 am #1831997

Scouser, you’re not wrong I was willing Barkley to pass to Pedro and fully expected to see Barkley flash it over the bar.😊March 4, 2020 at 8:41 am #1832007
I guess that was Lovrens fault ???????March 4, 2020 at 8:46 am #1832008
Lovren was the scapegoat on Saturday.
