Liverpool 1 Leicester 1

Not the result we wanted, not the result most expected but after a couple of odd days in the Premier Division we somehow managed to increase our advantage at the top. Leicester were probably the better side in some way but we had another inept performance from a refree but on the other hand we weren’t very good ourselves and you can’t blame the referee for that.

Liverpool 4 Crystal Palace 3

More proof that we can’t take our eye off the job required. Palace are the divisions odd ball. Can win at the Etihad but can’t win at hone, and hardly ever score at home.This like a heavyweight title fight, the underdog wanting to at least bloody the nose of the pretenders to the throne. The first half was worrying, we had nearly all the ball but didn’t look like scoring whereas Palace hardly touched it but went in one up! Second half was a bit kamikazi, when scored twice in the space of about five minutes it seemed we were on our way. Nope, they got on terms, then we got a third but then Milner gets sent off. We grabbed a fourth with just two minutes left but they wouldn’t lay down and somehow got another. The noise at the end was both exultation and relief.

Brighton 0 Liverpool 1

Back to basics, or rather just do what’s necessary and get the job done. Well we did it. Nothing sensational, penalty needed but three points. The table doesn’t lie, but it can be misleading. Brighton have learnt lessons and are not going to let teams just go down to their place and walk all over them. They make life hard, which is what they’re supposed to do. They should stay up again and that will be seen as their job done. We got three points Mo scored from the spot. We can live with that.

Wolves 2 Liverpool 1

Out of the FA Cup we go, another miserable experience in what used to be the most famous Cup competition in the world. A team of mainly so called fringe players & a couple teenage debutants who soon become three. Lovren injured after less than five minutes but his replacement, 16 year old Hoever looked outstanding. Curtis Jones & Rafa Camacho did their best but if anything they were let down by the senior players on the pitch.

Manchester City 2 Liverpool 1

Well we lost but it’s not the end of the world is it? Four points clear at the head of the table; I can live with that. We played a team they were saying just a few weeks ago might have been unbeatable but although we didn’t beat them we’re in a good position. Where do we go from here? Personally I’ll leave it to the manager, he seems to have a good idea of what its all about.
