    Lucas likes to dish out the dirty tackles but can't take them. Reacted badly to Oscar too.

    Oh lord now I've calmed down a bit I gotta say I was impressed with Willian. That was the best match I've seen him play for you, his all round gameplay was impressive, tracked back well and got forward when he should have. I think it's something we lack. Sterling and Coutinho are weak/small and not the best at tracking back. Hazard was marauding down both wings with ease.

    I think the difference in experience on the pitch showed as well. Coutinho kept trying to play all these through balls/take random long shots and I'm pretty sure none of them came off when all we had to do was keep our normal passing game going. We were so clumsy in possession, part of that was down to your pressing but we weren't very good with the ball. I don't think we got the ball to Suarez's feet more than 2/3 times? Absolute waste.

    Sterling got forward well, mugged off your leftback a few times no end product though so it didn't really matter. The difference in strength on our benches was pretty funny.

    Quite a few of our players had an off day (probably the ****test I've seen Johnson play) and you definitely deserve credit for some of it, but we didn't help ourselves at all. Looking forward to getting revenge at Anfield.

    And Jam I know you were pretty confident that Aspas would do well but I'm pretty sure he's not going to make it.

    Willian definitely had a great game today, he still hasn't imposed himself on the game as much as Hazard has done this season, but like against arsenal, his build up play was pretty sublime and all round play, still needs to improve in the final third but hey its a solid start from him. I thought we didn't need him, but I can see why we bought him.

    Coutinho was so poor today, Sterlings end product is just :lol: as long as we marked suarez we were always going to get a win tbh. Henderson being the only other person capable of changing things around is saying a lot. Just :rofl: at your bench. Even Arsenals bench earlier this season when everyone was injured wasn't that bad. But saying that, If Sturridge was fit, it would have been a different game, I'm not relishing the trip to anfield when your squad is fully fit tbh.

    I've learnt my lesson with aspas, never judge a player based on pre-season friendlies. There was just no point bringing him on. Might as well have kept Borini, or even play Jordan Ibe.

    Didn't get to watch the game, but I was confident of winning. They were lucky to take points off us on both occasions last season. At SB last year, we should've killed them off. At Anfield, Suarez should've been off and then he scored the equalizer. Things always come back to haunt you.

    Liverpool have had their fair bit of luck in the past 3 years at ours, so it was about time we got a home win against them.

    Mourinho reports Lampard has a muscular injury and will miss some matches. Ivanovic's injury is painful but not serious.
    Reckon we'll see more of Luiz in midfield with Lampard out then, may even spur us to sign a CM in January. Should cope without Ivanovic for a few weeks.

    Hearing that Bertrand may be on his way to liverpool. I hope if that's the case, we delay the transfer for a week or two. There's always using Essien there too in emergency situations I guess.

    So Ivanovic might not make it back for Southampton? Would be great to see Azpilicueta back at RB again. If you notice he was quite involved in our second goal, making that good run and providing the cross.

    Sounds like another Sturridge-esque mistake. He's very underrated imo.

    Tbh, I'd rather us get rid of one of Essien/Mikel(although he's been solid Luiz showed how much better he is than him today) and get a CM.

    Shame about the injury but unfortunately Lamps is regressing by the game, although he's still a useful squad player. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of Luiz in midfield now :coma:. 419 will be happy at this news :lol:

    No idea, Mourinho's comments are pretty vague, but there's no point in rushing him back for a game in 3 days.

    He's been played too much, possibly down to MVG injury but I guess we don't really know how much game time MVG would actually be seeing. Lampard plays so much better when he's been rested, IIRC a couple of weeks ago he played 3x 90 minutes in a single week which is ridiculous.

    I think Lamps did well today tbh. I think he needs to be next to a defensively solid but energetic player. Like pirlo has 2 of Pogba, Marchisio and Vidal to cover his lack of mobility and allow him to string passes from deep. It makes so much sense as a pairing that I don't get why it took Mourinho 3 months to realise this.

    Yeah but he suits the 4-3-3 so much better where he can play further up because he still has a good shot on him. Even when he played with Ramires who is more energetic than Luiz we struggle to control the midfield. But like you've said Luiz on his day is more solid than Ramires so Lamps should benefit playing next to him.

    We should play Luiz and Ramires in CM, with Willian and Oscar in the final third. Dat samba magic :coma:
