Liverpool 1 Everton 1

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.

Liverpool 7 Spartak Moscow 0

I thought we would beat Spartak but I wasn’t expecting anything like this.  Three up inside twenty minutes and instead of coasting home we went for the jugular.  Brilliant; and Coutinho was incredible as were Mane, Salah and Firmino.  When you think seven didn’t flatter us because seven could have been ten or more it says a lot.

Brighton 1 Liverpool 5

Sometimes things just go as you would want. Had Manchester City or their less illustrious neighbours won at Brighton in the manner Liverpool did the media and Sky would have been all over them. As it was nobody seemed to be saying too much about how we’d performed. Salah had a quiet game, just set up a goal this time whereas Coutinho was in magic man mood. His Samba pal Firmino got back to scoring ways with two simple goals but ones that came about because of the wonderful build up. When you’ve got two thirds of the midfield playing as defenders maybe it showed something. Wouldn’t fancy it every week but it was alright down on the south coast.

Stoke 0 Liverpool 3

It took awhile but once Salah came on the game changed. The first goal caused Stoke to get upset by Mane scoring meant we were in the driving seat. Mignolet could and probably should have walked but we got away with it.  Enter Salah and the rest was straightforward. Brilliant first goal and happy to accept the gift wrapped second.
