A good show whatever they might say about the opposition and 4-0 could have been anything upwards of eight. Good to see the likes of Solanke, Lallana and Ings on the pitch towards the end; that’s sensible rotating during a game. All three might have even scored and after a two home non-shows this more like the real thing. Not many out there questioning Mo Salah these days is there? Just wish those Coutinho and Barça mentions didn’t keep falling out of every Christmas Cracker he fires home.
I doubt there’d been a more boring game at Anfield in many-a-day. The atmosphere was non-existent; the performance on the pitch never even reached the dizzy heights of lukewarm and as far as the ‘Fab Four’ were concerned it was like watching a one of those Tribute bands that hadn’t got a clue. Karius found himself in goal and added another clean sheet to his account but there were times when he had the nerves on the end of a bit of string and was bouncing them up and down. Two home games played inside a few days and four points chucked away in the process. Still, the unbeaten run goes on.
Starting with the obvious, we should have been out of sight before the Everton penalty. Mane’s miss on halftime was costly, he could have squared the ball and any of three would have had a tap in. Salah’s goal was typical – just brilliant. Was it a penalty, sorry Jurgen if a player does what Lovren did he’s asking for trouble and he got it. Stop the stupidity and things will improve. QED. We outplayed Everton but we didn’t capitalise on the chances. Don’t lame the referee he wasn’t responsible for those misses.
