    Not a chance will we get top 4 now, can't see us winning this game and we still have to play City and Chelsea

    Sad but we genuinely could get rid of all of those players and not suffer. Could probably add Lingard, McTominay and Smalling to that list.

    Controversial but I'd not be sad if Rashford left, I get that's a step too far given the cost to replace all these players but I really don't see him being that good. He had a good few games when Solskjaer took over, as did the whole squad, but other than that he's just running in to dead ends and far too wasteful

    Yeah they’d be periphery players for sure.

    Fred is a liability.

    Agreed about Rashford. As I mentioned in the Barca game, he’s just not quite there. His finishing is not clinical enough to be our main striker.

    God I want to slap some of our players (all of our defenders). Smalling with some more lazy, complacent defending. Antonio deserved a goal for that strike.

    They should just give Jones a helmet for all games and be done with it... :D

    I can't believe that anyone that has watched McTominay since he came into the team can think he is good enough for a team with any real aspirations. He played well against a really sub-par Barca but that doesn't make him a good player.

    Completely agree. If we go with the logic of one game Fred would be world class due to a reasonable PSG game.

    Anonymous, languid game with no confidence but somehow we squeezed a win with penalties. I’ll take it.

    What an appalling miss from Sterling.

    Sterling misses a chance most defenders could take and then scores that...

    Sterling with another.... unreal how many of those sorts of goals he gets these days.

    His technique never looks clean though, even that was scruffy.

    Palace have offered so little in this match that I am astounded that so many 'pundits' had predicted this to be a draw.

    #LFC starting XI v #CFC: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Mane, Firmino

    Subs: Mignolet, Lovren, Milner, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Sturridge, Origi

    Glad he has got fabinho in and not reverted to the trusted three
