    We played too deep and let Everton pressure us, we always do that when we have a narrow lead. Last season we did that too and almost lost 2 points at times, got away with it as SaS were banging goals.

    On top of that did you know Balo has only scored 1 in hist last 19 premier league matches. He really should've scored that goal.

    This is how Chelsea fans felt last week....
    Ballotelli not clinical enough.
    Nonetheless that strike deserved all 3 points.

    We lost to a stunner, no fault on the defence at all.

    Fault on Balo and Markovic for not scoring their chances.

    liverpool should take the positives from this game.. it may feel gutting, but on the bright side:

    Gerrad was better
    Defense was much better..

    2 big positives, and when sturridge comes back, I am a bit more nervous about what you lot can do now..

    however, the result as a whole was not what you guys needed... 7pts from 6 games is awful, and you guys know that.. (not that 9, would have been good.. but better)

    Everton should be delighted.. did not deserve a point, but wow.. what a goal
    We have had a very slow and crap start to our season but yeah now we are getting into our stride. Our performance was very good today especially considering our last few games. Our next 5 fixtures in the PL are all winnable- West Brom, QPR, Hull, Swansea and Newcastle. If we win those matches we can make up some lost ground on the top 4 places, anything less than a win will not be acceptable.

    We really need to take our chances now, with Sturridge back our attack will be more clinical and I'm hopeful Balo will form a good partnership with Sturridge. Our new boys are also settling in well and their chemistry with the team should improve as the season goes on. I'm really excited about Lallana he's looked good today and in our last game, very light on his feet and does make good runs too.

    i think it's a little harsh to criticise any players except for markovic and balotelli.
    everybody else did their job and did it well.

    our defence was solid, our buold up play was decent but balotelli just didn't do what we pay him to - that's why we drew.
    near the end we sat back a little but that shouldn't be a negative - the only reason they scored was because of a wonder goal, they weren't getting through otherwise.

    Atleast they didn't score from a set piece, gives me hope for our defence that it took a wonder goal for them to concede.

    We defended a bit better and lallana looked half decent, what else is there? Lack of prowess in front of goal, creativity etc was once again missing. Bit more intensity then we've seen recently but it's a derby match, that's a given.

    So ****ing disappointed.

    when you played your first decent game in ages and then get robbed like that, it's hard to take anything good from the game.

    makes you a little unresponsive to other fans telling you to "look at the positives" while they're trying to hide their laughter from the most unlucky of occurrences.

    Youre always beyond raging after every non-win. Chill out bro.

    Balotelli was really poor today. That's okay, it happens, but what annoys me about him is his selfishness and clear desire for attention. Shooting pointlessly outside the box and throwing his arms up in the air whenever something didn't go his way. Really don't like that.

    worrying thing for me, is that its not the tough games that have been the problem..

    Spurs you were great, city you were average, and everton you were good just unlucky..

    Remind me a bit of chelsea last year, doing ok in bigger games, but then fluffing it against weaker sides..

    Need to change that over the next few fixtures:

    West brom, QPR, Hull, Swansea, Newcastle..

    All before you play chelsea..

    Should be atleast 13pts from 15, for me.. if you guys want to get back in the race for top4... with only swansea being passable as anything less then a win..

    That would then be 20pts from 33, which is more like it for CL qualification

    Fullbacks were excellent, defence in general weren't tested too heavily but they were excellent. Henderson was immense, everywhere, great passing all game. Interplay going forwards was much improved. Gerrard had a good game. Lallana looks like a Liverpool player. Sterling's quality is incredible and he set up both Balo and Markovic's sitters.

    Only two players in our team had a poor game, and even then, one of them was good for the most part (Balo). Both are new signings, and the other is barely out of his teens and playing in a new country.

    If that had finished 1-0 I'd have been very satisfied and very optimistic. As it is, I'm just very optimistic. Balo will start putting the tap ins away at some point, and if he doesn't, we've got Sturridge to return and the general improvement in cohesion across the team will come as they play together more.
