Liverpool 0 Manchester United 0

After the hype comes the predictable. Manchester United didn’t come to win and we couldn’t win – reminded me of last seasons game.  We didn’t play too badly, nobody was outstanding but nobody had a bad ‘un either. Unfortunately we can’t score goals at the moment but for once we didn’t look like conceding either. That’s a plus. I don’t care how Mourinho wants to play, that’s down to him but we need to find ways of coming up with an alternative.

Newcastle 1 Liverpool 1

Better late than never with this post. Basically the same as our previous games. Dominated possession, had most shots, attacked, attacked and attacked. Drew one all. Maybe it will change next time.

Moscow Spartak 1 Liverpool 1

Another somewhat predictable night. Total domination but couldn’t turn the superiority into goals. A goal conceded from a set piece and Lothar Karius under fire yet again.  If they’re calling our attacking options ‘The Fab Four’ well they were singing out of key and as Ringo once sang, they needed a little help from their friends!

Leicester City 2 Liverpool 3

Revenge is sweet, if that’s what this was.  Only why we should end the game with nothing of our fingernails left to chew is no longer baffling.  We now expect it and when Leicester were gifted a goal right on halftime by the incompetence of a referee or by virtue of Simon Mignolet messing [you decide] we knew what was coming didn’t we?  Henderson’s goal should have given us breathing space but a minute or so later breathing space was taken away.  Should Mignolet have done better [you decide].  The penalty the referee gave Leicester looked harsh but forget that, how did we end up in that situation.  Anyway Simon redeemed himself and we managed to hang on.
