    Henderson MOTM for me. Lost that little bit of extra drive when he came off. Wijnaldum never gave anything up today. Brilliant performance besides conceding another soft goal. We’re the only side so far who’ve made them look ordinary. With that defence Chelsea are crazy enough to give them a real goalfest. 9 points clear of them was about as good as we could have hoped for and we did it in the most convincing fashion.

    Well done to the boys, 3 points is everything, 3 points is all that matters, doesn’t even matter how we played.

    But let’s not get carried away, it’s still too early in the season, and too many dangerous opponents are lurking.

    On to the next league game which we must win to keep the ball rolling

    Razor, Henderson played quite well, despite being sick, and that’s why he was taken off

    I meant the team lost the drive and even said he was MOTM. What does him being ill have to do with anything…

    You have totally misunderstood my post.

    I am actually praising him for delivering a top performance despite being sick

    Go to the Hendo thread if you want to know my opinion of him, and it’s highly positive

    “Liverpool have now faced all their big-six rivals plus Leicester while City have plenty of work left to do, having only met the Reds and Tottenham up to this point.”

    It looks good songman, it looks really good…

    Fabinho MOTM for me, his goal will do him a world of confidence, what a strike,I want to see more like this from him

    A fantastic result, make no mistake that’s a massive 3 points.
    Not only does it put us 9 points clear of them but that’s a game gone that they themselves can take points off our lead.
    As others have mentioned already that’s the top 6 rivals all played plus Leicester while City have to play Chelsea, Utd, Arsenal, Leicester all within the next month.
    I think our game against Leicester on Boxing Day could be a big one for us.

    Fabinho was MOTM for me although there were many very good performances.
    Thought Lovren was very good. Trents passing is unreal at times. Hendos cross excellent and many more.

    A long way to go but a massive step forward.

    Almost got the 3-2 type game right but will gladly take 3-1.

    Just goes to show how important goals from midfield are – you need that rabbit out the hat sometimes to get the ball rolling. In recent games Liverpool midfielders have scored from open play in games vs Utd, Spurs, Genk & City today.

    Just hope this club World Cup doesn’t affect us now. We come back to 3 games in a week at the end of December.

    My fav bit of play today was our captain pressing that throw in and creating a change from absolutely nothing, decent cross from him as well… I also loved seeing Trent rile Sterling up, he was having sissy fit there in the end…

    Great start to the season with approx 2/3 of the season left to go we couldn’t have asked for much more. I thought Jose was spot on pre game regarding we are now a top team with a lead whereas in the past when we have had a lead the chasing team was better than us but this time feels different plus not a false lead when the other team has games in hand. We just seem to fine a way to win which is an amazing trait to have long way to go but this team with this manager it could be a special season for us.

    Good to hear Kompany’s totally unbiased assessment of today’s proceedings the man is real class ………………NOT.

    Great performance from the boys against difficult opponents, though I agree with many that Leicester will be a bigger threat over the course of the season, still it’s good to stretch our lead at Citeh’s expense, they’re dodgy at the back and this defeat will undermine them even further, just shows money doesn’t always buy you success.

    YNWA RIP the 96

    Massive win. Its unbelievable that we already have an 8 point lead at the top. But… its only November.

    A few years ago utd had an 8 point lead over city but stil lost out on the title on the last day.

    One thing i really love this season compared to last season is that we have a real nastiness to us now without crossing the limits. We are ultra aggressive when we need to be. I first noticed it against burnley this season, we didnt just beat them, we smashed them all over the park and beat them into submission. I first witnessed it against barca last season. Yesterday gini, fab, gomez, trent, vvd, lovren all showing real aggression. That barca game changed us.

    Why do we play the off side trap?? City had 2 chances in the begining from set pieces. We conceded one goal against Villa with the same way. Soemthing has to be changed. Especially Aguero and Stones had great chance to score!!

    ‘Why do we play the off side trap??’ Usually, it would be fair to assume that is a rhetorical question; but I have a feeling that you really do need it explaining. Please advise.

    It is funny we seem to play our best against the better teams & this game proved this again.
    An excellent performance v an injury hit City a deserved win.
    City should have had a penalty in the 1st half & Aguero thankfully had a stinker.
    I can understand us going defensive with 20 minutes to go but the constant pressure by City was giving me kittens.

    Fabinho was very good & Firmino was quiet, come on Roberto give us a goal, we do need him to add to his goal tally which is very poor.

    Looking good , but a long way to go & we do need to keep injuries (hopefully) at bay.

    Liverlad: Why should City have had a penalty? It hit Silva’s arm before hitting TAA’s arm. At worse, a free kick for us.
