After today, I think Liverpool should probably be hoping Chelsea beat Spurs, as Liverpool's realistic aim is a top four spot.

Disappointing result today, but a draw was a fair result. And it was a decent xmas period overall. 44 points from 20 games is nothing to sneeze at. League winning form most years.

Dropping points to weaker teams though. 8 points lost to Bournemouth, Burnley and Sunderland.

Not sure where youre going with that?

Liverpool lose points regularly  to teams in the lower half of the table. Not soft points but likes of Chelsea get the 3 points there. Utd. are now beginning to get those housekeeping results. At the end of the year it will be interesting to see how many points the top contenders left behind against the teams in bottom half.

It was. A terrible performance and poor result against Sunderland.

Youngest ever starting line-up and probably highest ever average shirt number for a starting line-up.

Youngest starting line up in Liverpool's history apparently, average age of 21. Didn't see any of it but heard it was a poor game and Plymouth just put the entire 11 behind the ball.
Play the same young team in the replay. No harm done as regards the first team XI really.
Be good for the younger lads to get another game.

At least 8 of the Liverpool players who featured were not kids. They still couldn't score a goal at home to lower League opposition who were making a 600 mile round trip.

It was a tough game for such an inexperienced team. Plymouth held their shape and barely ventured past the edge of their box for the vast majority of the game. No harm to expose players like that to that kind of problem, as if they make it at Liverpool or some other top club, they'll have to deal with it, albeit with more experienced colleagues with a bit more imagination, speed and movement.

I agree on same again next day. If they get through it, great. If not, who gives a bollocks? Its not worth possibly losing ground in the league at this stage of the competition.

I don't think it should make much difference. I seriously doubt Klopp will send many first choice players out in the replay.

Probably not, nor should they travel down with the 11 players... it's not just the game, it's everything else that goes with it... watched some of the game, when the main lads came on nothing changed, Plymouth to their credit defended well... at least it will generate money for a club that was recently in a lot of debt.... Sunday is all that matters

I disagree most of the other top teams rested plenty of players but were able to field a strong enough team to win. There is no reason someone like Sturridge for instance who hasn't had much football recently couldn't have started..

How do you know? You don't know anything about the situation really.
