Crazy half of football.
Fantastic strike from Salah for the 3rd, not that you would know it from Tyler's commentary  ::)

Leeds are great to watch.

Liverpool have been dreadful defensively. Van Dijk has continued where he left off last season with lazy defending and Alexander Arnold was exposed again for their first goal.

For Liverpool Salah and Keita playing well and they really should win this comfortably.

He has performed much better than Fabinho or Henderson any.time I've watched him play, he's an automatic starter for me.

Bronco? Similar to a stallion?

I would have Gomez at fault for both goals. Definitely in the 2nd he steps up far too far and is out of position. Virgil completes the mistake but that doesnít account for Gomez culpability. Him and Taa donít play well together. Gomez desire to step up into midfield with the ball is stifling Trents attacking instinct.

Gomez isn't good enough. Matip is better.

Thought Kieta has been average. Busy kind of player but limited in his ability. Bit of a Henderson mark II. Gini has achieved as much as him in much fewer possessions. Only problem with Gini is his sloppiness for the first 2mins. Since heís got off his ass and started playing Liverpool have looked a lot more comfortable.

I think Matip and Virgil do better together. Matip tends to get the best out of VVD

Matip does all the dirty work for Van Dijk,making him look better than he is.

Leeds were a breath of fresh air, really enjoyable to watch. Will probably go straight back down but it'll be brilliant entertainment.

It's a pity Liverpool had to resort to that embarrassing dive in order to win.

Messy but probably just about deserved.
Fair play to Leeds though they gave it a go.
Couple of tough fixtures coming up in the next few weeks so good to start with 3 points.

You're a gobshite.

Deserved 3 points to Liverpool. Salah was immense. Disappointed with Bobby. Really starting to show his age. Keita was so-so for me. Jones very good when he came on. Robertson was Liverpool's 2nd best player. Outstanding defensive performance in the 2nd half. 2 clear penalties and was an outrage Virgil's goal didn't stand, leeds man tripped over his own player, never a foul. Hope Gini stays, there's not the right mix of attacking guile and defensive workrate in the remaining MFs.

Did VVD and Gomez swap positions in that 2nd half? Seemed at times Gomez played next to Robertson and VVD next to TAA. Matip very rusty when he came on. For all my praise of him he is a clumsy kind of lad. Uncomfortable on the ball and 90 mins of Leeds pressing up on him would have had him shitting bricks.
