    Klopp made the substitutes he could did yu see our bench 🙄. Skerts had to come on Hendo was going to come on but they scored the equaliser. It was no ones fault we were just a bit flat we did play away 3 days ago and had to travel again. It doesn't matter anyway where we finish 😂 We aren't gonna finish in the top 4

    It was the first time in a while that our defence had been pretty settled for a few games and in the same period our results had been quite consistent in comparison to the rest of the season. The two teams with the most constant defences are at the top of the league

    If Klopp did take Lovren off for being on a yellow as opposed to any injury then I guess he probably doesn't have much trust in him. Lucas who is quite prone to yellow cards was never taken off in previous games, so it's bit of a weird one. I didn't watch the game so not going to say who was at fault.

    Anyway, it was bound to happen now that everyone seemed to start dreaming of top 4 again. We can rule that out now.

    I know technically we are no worse off top 4 than at the start of the day, but for the sake of not cursing the team, let's rule out Europe altogether.
    Let's be fair your defence is weak and Klopp is doing very well to string results together with this team. I'd expect the overhaul during the summer to start with your backline.

    Reports today from Jonathan Northcroft that one of Klopp's biggest desires for this summer is a new partner in the heart of midfield for Can.
    Really? I'd build my midfield with Henderson rather than Can at the moment.

    Same issues, different day.

    Well Klopp hasn't had a proper transfer window to change the squad with his players so can't complain too much.

    It was one bad game tbh. It's much more frustrating because we were 2-0 ahead, although in fairness Soton were a threat throughout, even in the first half when they failed to score.

    We've been on a great run lately, and the fact that just this single loss seems to throw us out of the running for top 4 shows just how far behind Klopp has had to come from just to get this far.

    As things stand, we really should be hoping that West Ham/United win the FA Cup because it would make the fight for EL places so much easier. The real issue we have is Chelsea. We're 3 points ahead with a game in hand but we still need to play them.

    Spurs are up next and I think we have enough to beat them. Similarly to when we play City, we always play well in this fixture. We only lost a single game today but getting back to winning ways instantly is important. It doesn't help that we have an International break to dwell on this...

    Nope, Klopp said he replaced him because he had a yellow. Which is ridiculous imo. I'd rather have had 10 men than put Skrtel on. Apparently he was **** for the U21s the other day.

    Also why not put Toure on who was available or even put Caulker on the bench?

    This the former's injury - and the nature of it, with it being re-occurring - may have forced Klopp's thinking.

    Yea I suppose that's right. We can't really wait on one player to see if he can get 100% fit (same mistake as we did for Sturridge).

    Tbh Henderson being our first change in that midfield isn't a bad one to have. Can't see any clubs coming in for him.

    I can't see Benteke or Skrtel playing again for us this season?

    Because Skrtel has been first choice CB for a long time and was before he got injured.

    Mane destroyed us with his pace - how was Toure (aged 35) going to fare any better? Caulker obviously isn't good enough since he couldn't get game time even when we were down to 1 fit CB..

    Benteke will - but Skrtel genuinely shouldn't. Let's just bomb him out now. I'd rather Sakho, Lovren, Toure, Caulker, Ilori, Lucas...

    Maybe while Firmino is injured but once fit you expect him and Sturridge to start and then Origi as the bench option?

    I think there's going to be a ruthless cull this summer.

    Wouldn't mind. Last week, I said I wanted to retain Skrtel to become the Kolo Toure-figure. **** that.

    Joe Allen and Kolo will leave, as will Enrique. I want Skrtel and Mignolet gone, too. I wouldn't be in tears if any of Moreno, Benteke, or Lucas left either.

    The latter would be sad, to be honest, but I feel he probably deserves - at his age - to be playing every week.

    I think everyone will be fuming that Mignolet will still be here after the summer. I'd be happy keeping Moreno and Lucas as squad players but shouldn't be near our first XI. Not sure how I feel about Allen but we do need a new CM.

    Shame really because Klopp spoke about how he didn't want to change too much but once again we seem to need an overhaul.

    Throwing away a 1 goal lead isn't the end of the world but it's losing a 2 goal lead that pisses me off the most.

    Losing yesterday was indefensible. I didn't even care to watch the post match interview, I just turned it off in rage.

    And United won.

    FA Cup finalist gets the EL spot if the winner has already qualified. Which means one of Crystal Palace or Watford will get that spot.

    EDIT: or have the rules changed recently?
