Christ we need a midfielder who can put a foot on it. Firmino has done that for us when he has dropped deeper. Jurgen will sort this out at half time.

Worried that the ref has left himself nowhere to go when there is another challenge

We can score though. Been a few breaks where with calmer heads we can carve them up. Unlucky towards the end there with Chamberlain.

Haha. Pep sent to the stands. Twat

Could have scored a couple. Their goal was from a fault by Sterling, but the goal ruled out for offside was also the wrong decision, so 1:0 is fair.

Am I the only one that thinks vvd was fouled for the first goal?
Maybe evened out as I'm not sure what the disallowed goal for city was for.
Mane needs to be better, he should be providing much more threat and an out ball with city pressing high, Bobby and salahs have done well on a couple of occasions when surrounded by blue shirts.

Expected city attack. I feel Like klopp purposely told our team to not go full blast and save it for the second half . We got a goal in us! Their first goal ahouldbtbrt hav been allowed. Blatant foul on vvd. Red giving us nothing too

Not sure about this. Some of the players look spent. Players like Firmino not even closing down in our defensive third. Our lack of squad depth hopefully won't come to haunt us.

Times like this call for cool heads and big personalities. It isn't about reputations and names. It's about desire and courage. We have to want it more.

I think that the fact that we managed to keep it at 1-0 until the half time will give us a boost. Don't think anyone, not even Klopp and the players, believed that was likely at 30 minutes.

We have no plan, and we've been bottling it all half. Shocking. We may have got away with one with that offside, too.

My memory is fuzzy as I was screaming at the tv, but, he's beyond the last "defender" which in this case became Karius as he pushed up in front of trent to punch the ball therefore the offside is correct?

Honestly I blame Karius for that, no one around VVD except Sterling and he throws it straight to him! What did he think was gonna happen.

They are both culpable. He shouldn't be throwing that out but once he does Virgil has to deal with it and he can't be slowing down because he thinks he's been fouled

What a half that was. So much to talk about.

Look, the incidents come from the bigger issues. The biggest issue here, is: we are not getting players out wide, to mark and stifle City's gameplan of playing on the touchline. It's a fundamental defect of the 4-3-3, after it happened the first time, Klopp and the staff have done absolutely nothing to rectify it. The usual move is to go 4-4-2 and match them for numbers wide in terms of starting positions, this is nothing particularly groundbreaking, or innovative, yet the staff haven't responded. The staff have let the players down, first half. Everything else comes from this.

Secondly, that was a very poor piece of judgement from Van Dijk, you want to play a high risk pass in your own third, you do it when under full control. That was ego superseding judgement there, should have just let it roll out.

We've gotten in at half time 1 - 0 down through luck, not control, it's not good enough. The biggest failure is a failure to respond tactically to their use of the wings, this MUST be rectified 2nd half. The players have given it their best, they now need precise guidance. There were 2 or three moments where the only thing that stopped City was their own poor decision-making, could be 2 goals up and it would be deserved.

Robertson and Mane have really stood up to be counted here, clutch players.

I think we've been good. Apart from that gift from VVD City have gotten nothing. Need to assert some control now though. Big second half coming up but I'm confident,  I think we'll score and I don't see them scoring the goals they need.

He can boot it upfield, out for a throw, anything. Instead he feels the touch and just gives up and stops playing. I hope Klopp gives him a bollocking for that.

Hard to see if we don't have a plan or we aren't executing a plan.
Thanks fuck its only 1-0.

We need a spell of control, they are having so much space across the middle, our midfield is too deep, we are stuck.

I give City the credit for executing their plan well to overrun us in the midfield. But as soon as Firmino saw that he should have stepped back into midfield. Ox and Gini can't get into the game without the ball.

Why would anyone say 'pathetic' or shit the bed ffs?

We're 1-3 up at half time. Yes we've been battered but bar the Silva shot off the post, we've held out resolutely.

They need to win the second half 3 nil to put us out on the night.

We can step it up an awful lot and I think we'll creep into it as they begin to tire.

We need to be more careful in possession. I wouldn't mind seeing Clyne come on for Trent if only to allay the far of another yellow marking Sane.

We’re being outplayed in every single part of the pitch. It’s a miracle they aren’t level yet.

Unless something changes I think we’re going out.

Let's just see what the second half is like before we wave the white flag. In case you haven't notice we have our best players out there already, we have little on the bench who'll change the game. Dare I say it we are missing Hendo tonight. Hopefully Klopp will sort something out.
