If it changes direction off an arm and goes in its a foul mate.
Was Trent injured? I kind of hope so as why bring him off as the final sub?!
Coutinho couldn't beat a man or pick a pass today, too much intricate stuff and too many 'killer' pass attempts.
Thought Trent and Robertson did as well as they could considering the lack of movement up top.
Karius had a few flappy moments, a strange free kick, but he dealt with them all and made so decent saves.
Gini was quiet again, and can was laboured I thought.
Salah was off today, seemed to have a good few touches then wasted it - course everyone can have an off day!
I was pretty much sat worrying the whole game Salah would get injured!
Very annoying game, lack of creation again, but at least we kept a clean sheet. Need to win these at home though.

{Ed0333's Note - that was utter dross. Tiredness, lack of creativity, not making earlier substitutions however you wanna dress it up it was abysmal. They weren’t playing as a collective but a bunch of individuals. You thought Robertson did well? I must have been seeing a different match. His play lacks intelligence and cohesiveness and I think he’s a weak link. Can you imagine what a Ronaldo, or a De Bruyne would do to him?

I thought Robertson was really poor tonight. Him and Wijnaldum offered nothing and whilst they weren't the only players to have bad games they were the worst offenders.

We knew what we were getting with Robertson. To be fair he wasn't klopps prime target.

I wouldn't write off Robertson just yet. The lad has ability but has been sat in the stands for a long time. He needs a rhythmn of games to understand his role, a chance to make mistakes and learn from them. All manner of training can happen throughout the weeks but matches are where most players really begin to understand the role and the demands placed on them.

I personally agree with you, ED. I didn't think Robertson had a good game, at all. However, with time and patience, I think he could push himself into the first 11. It will be difficult, as Moreno has really refound a good vein of form, but he has a period of time where he can play regularly and learn. New team, new way of playing, new expectations. This will take time but I think he, and we, will be better for it.

{Ed0333's Note - Not writing him off mate just saying he has a bad game. I concur with regards to Robertson being coached into a better player Christ Kloppo done it with Moreno and I thought he was a lost cause. I will however maintain Robertson isn’t up to the required standard momentarily. If we were to play PSG, Madrid, Barcelona or Juve in the Champions League would you be confident with Robertson at left wing back?

Still young and only had a handful of games, not sure he should be written off already.

robbo is alright, but that's about it right? like he ain't any worse than moreno, but I don't think he is significantly better than him. anyways, good for him to get a run of games, hopefully he can push on.

Robbo is light years behind Moreno and yesterday showed that. Had Moreno been on the attacking side last night, he would have ripped Nyom a new on and got behind him many more times. As a group perf., Ed03333 is right. Too disjointed, lacked guile and pace and too many poor perfs. on the offensive side. We looked jaded. The interesting thing was that Utd and Arsenal looked jaded as well and had it not been for DDG, B'mouth should have gotten a point. We just have to do better next time, that's all as nothing is lost yet and had we won both games, nothing would have been won either.

Ed0333, and you would be confident of Moreno up against Ronaldo, De Bruyne, PSG etc, coz I wouldn’t be mate. We still don’t have a LB who can defend first and foremost and that will show when we meet the big boys.
Wonder how much Robertson would improve after a couple of years with the club like Moreno’s had. You’re being very harsh on a guy who hasn’t even made the bench for most of this season.

{Ed0333's Note - personally I wouldn’t afford Robertson 2 years but my point is I don’t feel he has the ability to be shaped or transformed into a player. I will gladly eat humble pie if Klopp turns him into Javier Zanetti.

What's your point Ed0333? Nobody will feel confident with Robertson v any of those teams, but let's go through the entire backline and midfield,
You comfortable with Lovren/ Klavan or Marko against Aubamayang, or Ronaldo? How about Trent v Messi or Neymar?

You can't use Robertson won't do well against the top teams as an argument. Go from Mignolet to Wini and all those top teams murder us man for man. We've got a fab front 4 enough to compete with the best attacking line ups, from there back, lucky to be top 20.

{Ed0333's Note - my point is young man that we should be signing quality left wing backs that are capable of playing football and ready for the first team.

Ed0333, are you confident with any of our defence/ midfield against those teams?

{Ed0333's Note - yes if we play like we did at Anfield against Arsenal in August.
