His starting position is unreal, init? That one were he just hopped out and headed it. Then it was an exhibition in catching boss shots. Fucking Gorilla Glue on them gloves him, lad.
Mooched about obviously being boss, but wasn’t that type of game where he can run the gaff.
Played six, got six clean sheets on the bump. Made a couple of mad errors, but absolutely loved him weighing up whether he was gonna get the ball in that Son tackle and then just deciding to welly him.
Should score with that header, shouldn’t he? Fuck’s sake, Virgil. Thought he had dislocated his knee and whacked out a couple of Hail Mary’s. She boxed it. Was deep for that big chance for them, dropped off a lot.
Loved the tackle second half where he clips the ball then absolutely twats their lad, then had a lovely big roll about on the floor to distract attention. Mad the way VAR fell for it.
Got caught on it a few times which is unlike him, but then set up the Virg header which should go in, and wins the header on the edge for the goal. Looked leggy last 10 but didn’t half manage the game. Telling lads to keep it and that.
Absolutely worked his plums off. Everywhere. His ability to keep the ball, mate.
Oxo Chambo: 8
Was really good today. Linked up with Bobby really well, mooched in and out of positions all day, not easy that what he was doing first half.
Them positions he was taking up there, first half. Seen Eriksen point at him loads but absolutely swerve going anywhere near him. Seen the centre half telling Eriksen to fucking fuck right off if he thinks he is leaving his lovely big deep line to come and close him.
Should score first minute, does really well but should score. But then the touch for the goal. That lad got sent for a Chow Mein there, come back with a meat and potato fella. Absolutely ta’ra. Ran the game from centre mid.
The touch for Bobby’s goal, la. The strength to hold off that absolute bruiser at the back, plays him in. Unlucky tonight. Thought his link-up play was boss. Could have scored a couple, too.
Reckon he must have won the ball back abar 20 times, there. Just kept pinching it. This team, mate. Just absolutely completed footy, haven’t they? Got a cheat code on the go.
Mad the way you are made up to see him come on these days, as opposed to when he come on at Old Trafford and the boozer let out a massive groan. Kept it, moved it, legged it boxed it. Might make a Euro Pop number one with them lyrics, there.
Come on and did that double drag back diddle to beat abar 25 lads in their box, and get his shot off. Probably the fourth best attacker in the league.
“The Reds were far superior”
“This Liverpool team are showing no signs of letting up” 👊
