Liverpool scrape another jammy point.

I don't think they look too flash at all. I think their lucky goals are going to dry up very quickly.

Pereira's game tonight might have saved his career.

Rojo probably ended his. I hope Tuanzebe is back next week.

Rashford played well, looks like he's finally not over thinking things.

Fred wasn't absolutely dire.

Can't wait till Martial and Pogba are back.

I said something similar at this point of the season last year and their luck in general has continued almost every week since!

Better than I expected, thought we would get thumped.  Have to wonder if they would have done as well with Pogba in there. Sometimes I dont think he plays with enough intensity and that was needed today. Feeling a bit frustrated we couldnt hang on to win which in one way feels hopeful.

Mostly just a vent.

But, if you look at their goals this season there's been a fair amount of sharkhousery and opposition teams missing sitters.

Nice tackle from behind and got away with it, even scoring from the resultant breakaway. A friend of mine in Aussie said the referee got a Rolex for his performance.

Watch it again, you'll see the somersault he chucked in to try get extra points. Origi took a shark touch then tried to draw a foul, ref made the right call there.

Rest of the game, you may have a point but he got that one right.

Compared to what the VAR has ignored against us in the box and last man this season...

Rashford gets tackled like that 10 times a game.

After reading some comments on here this morning I had to check with the wife to see if we watched the correct game this morning. I also took another look at it and it was almost the same as I remembered it. 

Reality is we are not on the same page as Liverpool.If anyone disagrees I suggest you watch the game again. We certainly played better than I thought we would but we certainly did not deserve to win. The first 10 mins we looked good and Liverpool were terrible.I know that stats don't tell the whole story but I kept on all game about how poor our passing was. I just checked the pass accuracy and there it was.

Utd 67%  Liverpool  84%   The A league teams have a better rate than 67% We were absolute crap in that department.  68%  Liverpool possession to our 32 % just about sums it up. 

If we are to challenge for the EPL in a couple of years then at least six of those that played today will definitely not be there. I  have been a passionate supporter of Utd for more than fifty years but I don't wear rose tinted glasses.

Last but not least. If in any doubt have a look at the EPL table and you will see that Liverpool have won 8 games---- we have won 2. Nothing more to say. 

If you are old and wise you were probably young and stupid

I watched this game and you were not even close to the same level as 'Pool, even on a bad day for them.

Not really what I'm saying but, "not even close" based on the fact that they passed the ball around and went no where? Ok then.

Just in terms of actually playing football, and the fact you were at home. 'Pool are just clearly a class above. (a couple of classes above Arsenal too!)

Looking forward to the game on Friday. I assume we will go back to a back four. Should be a tasty atmosphere and a good test for our young players.

Well that was pretty average yet again but you've got to take the points and the lifting of the away curse and move on. Our first touch was dire in that second half in particular. We just could not keep possession. Brandon Williams well and truly the stand-out for man of the match in my book. Can't wait to see Ashley Young come straight back in for Norwich. Last sentence may contain sarcasm.

Well, finally an away win and a decent performance. My thoughts:

  • Best midfield display of the season. Thought McTominay was excellent aside from his error for the Norwich goal, Pereira I thought did well and Fred improved although still has the occasional major lapse in concentration
  • Rashford looked a different player for having Martial back in the team and moving out left. The interplay between those two is exciting and promising
  • Glad the two pen misses didn't cost us. Did anyone else just know they were both going to be saved?
  • Reasonably solid at the back but Ashley Young is a major liability defensively. I would have brought Williams on when Young got booked, if not earlier.
  • The Norwich goal annoyed me more than our goals excited me. At that point they were down to 9 fit outfielders, a central defender who couldn't move playing up front, and an injured goalkeeper. Once we conceded it looked like we were going to concede again. We need to keep clean sheets!
  • One win and now the table doesn't look so dire. We've got to back it up against Norwich.
