Spurs playing in THEIR new stadium may have had something to do with it.  Losing Kane a big blow.
I have more respect for a man

City manager seems to have taken a calculated risk by resting some players hoping not to concede or concede to much.

I wouldnt be overly concerned by last nights result.
If we play to our potential at home we could easily stick 3 or 4 past them.

Problem between now and the end of the season is Pep is going to have to rest some of the top players for some games and it is in these we could slip up in the PL.

The main goal for Pep has to be the CL. Let Liverpool have the league

Good results and crucial to keep the clean sheet but Liverpool definitely had a bit of luck yesterday. While for me the two penalty calls under VAR were absolutely correct i.e. no pen, they could easily have been given when you see the penalty united got against PSG and hear  the way the referees are being asked to interpret the rule. WTF is a normal silhouette in a high speed, professional sport??

Salah definitely lucky, again borderline but could have had no complaints if he walked.

Hendo very good again last night, if you take the shackles off and give him a bit of license to attack he is a decent offensive midfielder. Keita decent albeit I wold worry about him defensively against better teams.

As a final note, good to see Gomez back involved.

p.s. Barcelona want Moreno who cannot even make the squad when the first choice LB is injured??

Definite red to me.

Don't think he meant any harm - it looked to me like he shaping up to put his foot on top of the ball and spin around like he often does - but you have to be aware of what's going on around you. Could have broken the lad's leg.

Exactly it.  No malice whatsoever.  Very lucky to get away with that.

https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/announcements/345516-liverpool-fc-statement

"The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players, is dangerous and disturbing. Already this season, we have seen repulsive discriminatory abuse inside stadiums in England, Europe and across the world; abuse that was captured on devices and put into the public domain. We have also witnessed numerous hateful attacks on social media. This behaviour needs to be called out for what it is - unadulterated bigotry.

Liverpool Football Club believes it is the responsibility of those in positions of authority, following proper process, to act urgently to identify and then punish anyone committing a hate crime. There is no place for this behaviour in football, there is no place for it in society. A crime of this nature has more victims than any individual it is aimed at and, as such, collective and decisive action is needed to address it.

As pertains to this latest incident, the club is working with Merseyside Police to ascertain the facts around this footage with the aim of identifying individuals featuring in it. In addition, we are working directly with Chelsea Football Club on the matter. We thank them for their condemnation and a commitment to act urgently to identify any individuals responsible."

There are idiots everywhere. Clubs canít read the minds and intentions of those they admit. All they can do is act appropriately afterwards.

And itís only seven years since Liverpool completely fumbled the Suarez-Evra issue.

Bizarre that Liverpool Fc see the need to elevate this non-event to heights that it doesn't deserve?

I agree.

The only thing Liverpool can achieve here is set a precedent that comes back to bite them. If thereís one thing in this world that doesnít determine how likely a person is to be racist/sectarian/sexist, itís the football club they follow.
