Salah, Salah, Salah I just love the man and at this rate he could potentially score 40+ close to 50 goals this season if we end up with extra games by progressing all the way through to the finals of the Champions League. I honestly don't know what to say about the guy as its not just his finishing but his hold up play his passing his touch. Start winning trophies and we can keep this guy here for a long time.

Firmino and Mane had really good games, and it was nice to see Mane drop into the middle and start creating and linking the midfield to his fellow striking partners.

Special mention to Robertson, I didn't fancy him when we signed him like many but have been impressed by the guy for a while now. He is improving, comes across as quite likeable character and seems like an honest hard worker, which you can never knock.

No negatives from today when you have won by 5 goals, well maybe a slight negative is Gini Wijnaldum, which I have said for as long as I can remember needs to be added to the list of players to ship out this summer. Unfortunately he offers nothing in the literal sense of nothing.

We should not fear anyone because with our front 3 we can score goals against anyone. All in all perfect day and bring on Palace!

Firmino class goal but didn't have a good game.

17 Mar 2018 20:18:31
I do get the Gini criticism but we don’t know what instructions he’s been given.

17 Mar 2018 20:23:59
I think Firmino played well enough in my opinion not his usual high standards but still got involved with pressing and obviously got the goal. Henderson had an off game in my opinion and Gini had his usual game, everybody else acquitted themselves well.

17 Mar 2018 23:46:37
Firmino played well enough, it amazes me when he tracks back 40 yards to win the ball, the goal was beautifully taken, quite hard to pull off when the ball is so high. 8/ 10.

18 Mar 2018 03:13:55
Gini keeps the ball well under pressure. That's all I'll say. He gives the opposition zero time on the ball. He doesn't put in flashy performances but I bet he is a nightmare to play against.

17 Mar 2018 19:53:41
I just knew a team would pay for it after last week, get in, Salah is just unbelievable, what a fantastic 3 points!

City! beware!

Agree5 Disagree1

17 Mar 2018 20:00:01
for once I 100% agree. Our main man, the point getter, the match winner. Our best player.

Take a bow Mo Salah. I hope he finally proved to you he can do it on his own. Mane also top game today.

17 Mar 2018 20:00:02
Yeah, what a response.

Fantastic performance from Robertson.

Vvd's calming influence and intelligence gives us yet another clean sheet.

Jordan Henderson is massive for us, absolutely massive. If he is fit for the city games, and of course the front three, we have every chance. He is relentless, never drops his game, even at 4 up.

I think our defense lacked intelligence before Vvd signed. They are clearly good defenders but would collapse too easily. None of that now. I fancy city, I really do. If we win the first game, it's ours imo.

17 Mar 2018 20:01:43
Please don't go to Madrid Mo!

Also, try using your right foot one of these days :)

17 Mar 2018 20:09:29
I don't really understand how Henderson comes out of today's fixture with the tag of him being massive for us. Salah is world class. The front 3 together look world class. Robertson looks great on the left and VVD has made a massive difference at the centre with Karius being a big added bonus and calming influence to the whole of the defence.

17 Mar 2018 20:26:50
Jayden23 Henderson for me had a bad game, wayward passing and also got dispossessed a few times due to dithering on the ball.

17 Mar 2018 20:27:53
Jay - it is simple he is better than the rest of our midfield. The only one who can pass forward. He didn't have his best game ( a bit rusty) but he is better than the rest.

17 Mar 2018 20:46:35
Mark08 it's not me being critical of him but I also don't see him as our savour either. Last week fans were making out like we only lost because he didn't play. Hendo is a good player nothing more nothing less. We have gone from Stevie G and Alonso in the past to this current midfield. For me our midfield is our weakest area and I expect Klopp to fully strengthen it and that includes Hendo.

17 Mar 2018 21:06:44
I really rate Hendo but for me it's who's around him, with the likes of Keita incoming with maybe another CM, I think we'll see incredible changes to Hendos game.

17 Mar 2018 21:06:54
Henderson can control a game like no other player in our team. When you look back over the last 2/ 3 years and look at the games that we win by more than 3 goals, Hendo is always in the team. No it wasn't his best game but he still had a good game.

17 Mar 2018 21:27:52
Salah scored with his right foot today Bennett. What more do you want? ;)

17 Mar 2018 21:49:18
I'm sorry but I don't see how Hendo wins us games by more than 3 goals. Salah, Mane and Firmino are the reason we win games at a canter.

17 Mar 2018 22:08:44
Jay I am with you mate. Midfield needs a massive upgrade.

Keita is top top quality by the way, just need to add 2 more.

17 Mar 2018 22:15:56
Jay, I'm sorry BUT Salah is nowhere near world class yet as he will have to play at the level or close to the one he is playing at now, for the next 3 years as one season should not make you suddenly WC as he could have an average season next year.

Also, Hendo when fit, is indeed massive for us. His passing ability long or short, is well underrated and he as a DM or CM, never hides in games unlike others I can mention who play for us there (cough Wiji cough) .

Hendo tries passes that many won't do cos they are scared of losing the ball, That takes courage and his tactical and positional awareness, are what makes him better than Can in that position as Can is positionally weak while Hendo is not. Now, his injuries may have slowed him down (like it did Lucas) but if we will beat City, we are going to need him fit and firing, providing the bite and energy in midfield to allow the front 3 to flourish.

17 Mar 2018 23:40:31
Nonsense, his current level is world class. He will actually keep improving.

17 Mar 2018 23:42:48
BRover I understand what you're say about Salah and whilst I agree he does need to maintain this form over a couple of seasons there's also no denying the form he has shown this season has been world class. We will have to agree to disagree on the Henderson one mate. We have already beat City this season without Henderson and we are currently 3rd and in the quarters of the CL with him missing quite a few games. To me players like Stevie G, Alonso, Suarez, Torres, Hypia, Rush, Keegan, Dalglish etc were massive. Henderson comes nowhere near massive to the club for me. Like i said previously this is not a Henderson bashing but just an honest opinion.

17 Mar 2018 23:50:19
Of course the forwards who score are the reason we win by 3 or more but its no coincidence that Henderson is always in the team on the days we win by big margins. It is his relentless mentality and his ability to control games. Don't underestimate our captain jay23, he is a massive player for us.

18 Mar 2018 02:35:53
Salah IS world class. I he isn't, no one is.

18 Mar 2018 07:51:19
Stoneage. I know he scored with his right foot hence I said it. I was being sarcastic :)

18 Mar 2018 07:55:19
Supersalah great to hear your thoughts and have a little debate. I'm not underestimating the captain I just think he's overestimated. If you look at the games he has missed we have won many by 3 or more goals and have dropped many a point with him in the team this season. That's not me saying the games we drop points in are his fault but I'm also saying the games we win at a canter have little to do with him ether. Our best win and performance of the season against City was a game he didn't play in and now all of a sudden we will only beat City if he is fit. I'm more worried about the front 3 staying fit personally.

17 Mar 2018 19:43:10
Snow is falling, all around me, players playing, having fun, tis the time for love and understanding, Salah 4 Watford none.

Agree8 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:42:49
Methodical. Clinical. Deadly. And Mo Salah does indeed have a right foot, despite assurances to the contrary.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 22:17:26
Ra1969 and if Real or Barcelona want Salah, they need not bother with trying to sign him cos his right foot alone, will be worth 145m (Cout type money) while for his left foot? They need not even apply.

17 Mar 2018 23:51:09
Salah is going nowhere this summer.

18 Mar 2018 09:16:01
BRover - I'm with Supersalah and don't think Salah is going anywhere this summer. All depends on what happens next season though and the summer after it. I try to focus only on the football, but we're all constantly reminded it's a business too. If you look into the past 2 decades or so, almost all "world class" players have passed through either Real Madrid or Barcelona at some point (whether successfully or not) . Just the way it is.

17 Mar 2018 19:31:43
Absolutely delighted with the result today! I was personally concerned about Watford being a banana skin!

Mo Salah, my oh my what a player!
Congratulations on your first Liverpool hatrick sir! Surely the golden boot is his this season.

With the Robertson assisted goal I immediately thought of Ed001! You was referring to the shape of his crosses the other day, that was a prime example :)

One step closer to securing Champions League football for next season!

Well done Reds :)

{Ed001's Note - and he got his head up before delivering! Beautiful ball it was.}

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:41:28
I hope he gets past the 31 in 38 games record!

17 Mar 2018 19:42:31
How good was Salah though? 28 EPL goals so far and there is still 7 matches to go.

17 Mar 2018 19:43:08
Moreno at left back is looking like a thing of the past
Andrew is securing that position imo.

17 Mar 2018 19:47:29
Great performance from Salah and great result for us reds. Enjoy your weekend gentlemen (and ladies) .

17 Mar 2018 20:01:35
I never expected that. Salah was unplayable.

17 Mar 2018 19:59:04
It really was beautiful Ed001! And like you said, he got his head up before delivering! Just that one second of composure makes all the difference. If he carries on at this rate, he is going to be some player!

What, 8 mil from Hull? Cracking transfer!

I also agree with the rest of you guys, Salah is an absolute beast! he skins defenders for fun and its like time stands still sometimes with the ball at his feet!

17 Mar 2018 22:18:52
Our boy Robbo is learning and improving and if he keeps doing that, LB is sorted for the next 5 years easily.

17 Mar 2018 19:31:41
This is a difficult post to write but here goes.

You’re playing some super football right now and Salah is incredible, everything we hoped a Lukaku, or Sanchez would be. It pains me to say it but you are playing football the United way.

I was born in Manchester, live in Warrington, and have often worked in Liverpool. I hate your club, I hope you never win another trophy, but I know the people of Liverpool and they are sound.

My club found time to issue a statement asking fans to stop singing a song about Lukaku’s penis but they remain silent when tens of thousands of fans sing vile chants at games against Liverpool. It’s the one time of the year I am embarrassed to be a United fan. Banter is fine, hatred is not. On the pitch we hate each other, off the pitch we are all human, with families and responsibilities. It may be futile but I am writing to my club to point out their silence and ask them to step up and show some class.

Agree17 Disagree2

17 Mar 2018 19:39:53
wow hats off to you mate
class post.

17 Mar 2018 19:40:27
Thanks AJH. I'm not a Liverpudlian, but I support this club since decades. All I can say is that you're "sound" too.

17 Mar 2018 19:40:54
Much respect for this post. Very well said AJH.

17 Mar 2018 19:41:15
Top, top man.

17 Mar 2018 19:48:29
Lovely Post that.

17 Mar 2018 19:53:07
We aren't playing football the United way at all mate, Liverpool playing the Liverpool way and have been building up to this since Klopp came in. Positive attacking football, United play the worst football i have ever seen atm.

Other than that decent post. Everyone likes a bit of banter.

17 Mar 2018 19:56:23
Great post mate. Respect.

17 Mar 2018 19:56:27
AJH it’s the main reason I’d never take my son ( when he’s old enough ) to United away. I have no problem with being kept behind for 30-45 mins at Old Trafford, it’s the chanting that spoils the fixture. It then goads some idiotic
Liverpool fans to them start chanting the anti united chants.

Good post. I now live in Appleton pal. Where do you live in Warrington?

17 Mar 2018 20:34:29
Culcheth mate, it’s full of Scousers 😳.

17 Mar 2018 20:47:27
Fair play AJH. It’s nice to hear that. Banter is banter, it’s part and parcel of football but I agree the vile chants need to disappear. It’s just not good and totally undignified of those that take part. Hats off to you for saying your piece tho I’m sure the feelings mutual and LFC supporters have a high dislike for Utd but as you say it’s about the clubs and not the fans. C’Mon Brighton 🤣🤣 kick their arse!

17 Mar 2018 20:49:50
Class post AJH.

17 Mar 2018 21:16:50
The other side from me then. I do drive through Culcheth when we goes to Bents garden centre for lunch and aokk round.

I tend to go out and have a few beers in Stockton Heath.

17 Mar 2018 22:19:56
Sound post, AJH.

18 Mar 2018 08:17:28
Both clubs should issue zero tolerance statements every time this fixture comes up.
Great post AJH 👏.

17 Mar 2018 19:27:32
Like so much of Egypt's treasures Mo Salah was stolen and taken to England. What a player.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:36:49
Slight Jealous👀. nearly 40 goals scored, from the wing and still 2 months of the season left, my word he is an astonishing player. Its the quality of the goals he's scored aswell, not just tap-ins, first goal today was reminiscent of Messi's vs Bayern.

17 Mar 2018 20:55:49
He’s outstanding Scholes, I hope the player of the season awards are not dominated by City players. 28 league goals and 9 assists thus far, I think he deserves it. The City players are all part of an outstanding team that get the best out of each other, Mo at times has simply just done it all on his own.

I do hope he perseveres with us for 2 more seasons, if we don’t deliver trophies for him by then he is entitled to look for a move.

17 Mar 2018 22:01:36
Think he just about deserves it over KDB, both been wonderful but Salah edges it.

17 Mar 2018 22:22:22
KDB has been playing in the PL for 3 seasons while this is Salah's first REAL season as a true starter in the PL and at this moment, he should win it cos he is accomplishing things that took veteran players like KDB, Kane and Aguero, several years to do and accomplish.

17 Mar 2018 19:25:47
Somebody lift that plastic bag of the pitch for gods sake. It was there right until the end. Great win tho.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:25:06
Utter domination. Robertson has made LB his position. He is thriving.

Emre Can, let me just say that we are not going to miss him once Keita arrives.

Salah, Salah, Salah. What more can one say.

What a goal from Firmino and how much better is our midfield with Henderson calling the shots?

Karius although he had not much to do has definitely brought calmness to our back 4. Van Dijk just needs the perfect partner.

3 points, clean sheet and 5 goals.

The only way is up!

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 19:53:54
Thought hendo was top notch today. Was given a lot of space though! But can't take away from the top performance, Ings looks so sharp.

17 Mar 2018 20:46:00
I won't miss Can either. Too slow on and off the ball.

I'm a big Hendo fan but he had good and bad patches today. Maybe fitness related?

Still my favourite midfielder of ours.

17 Mar 2018 19:24:56
WOW Just WOW! That fourth goal was my favourite, plays an amazing ball to Ings and the ball still ends up at his feet. Im running out of things to say about the guy. #EgyptianKing.
