More impressed with the performance of their ultras than their team tbh
After 30 mins of the game and their incessant 'drumming', I couldn't help but think 'OK. Heard you. Now STFU"
Pretty impressive when they went two down though.
Dejan Lovren denies wrongdoing after being charged with perjury
Was he in court when he said he was one of the best defenders in the world?

I think we can stop the League now.
and at United
That will do, so far...
Feel a bit sorry for Shaqiri getting subbed half-time like that. I can see why Klopp did it but he had a really good first half. Like him a lot, really strong player.
Thanks to West Ham they are the only side with a 100% win record also pleasing to see Utd dropping more points been enjoying reading the #mufc twitter comments and the fans trying to understand why they are paying £500k a week for Sanchez
Next two both against CFC in the same week Suspect both teams will be making a lot of changes on Wednesday.
Not massively bothered about the league cup, but the next three matches after that, against Chelsea in the league, Napoli in the CL and City in the league, should answer further questions about our true top level at this stage of the season. I have confidence we can emerge unbeaten at least.
So next five fixtures are
Man City (h)
I predict at least 7 points from the league matches and a win in both cup games.
I am not fussed about the league cup either but I think a good win will be good for morale before a tough away game at Stamford Bridge.
Obviously the big test is going to be City, but at least they are coming to Anfield. They dropped two points away to Wolves and dropped a clanger away to Lyon but have won all their other games comfortably and have the best GD in the table.
Some interesting stats from the BBC
Premier League: How are teams doing compared with same fixtures last season?
Shaquiri will no doubt start on Wednesday. Possibly the only one who started at the weekend. So may explain the early sub. It’s nice to finally field a team in league cup that will still look strong on paper minus mignolet.
I am actually bothered. A good cup run for the fringe players will do wonders for their morale as well as everyone else’s. And quite frankly. I’ll accept any kind of silverware to get back above united on the trophy count.
Fifa awards are a bit odd
Not bad that
Mickey Mouse Cup
Thank fuck that's not our first team anymore.
A shame we couldn't capitalise on our dominance in the start of the 2nd half, but Hazard made all the difference. Some player.
As for our side, Sturridge looks sharp, as does the back line mostly. A midfield with Fabinho and Keita looked good in parts, but the latter I thought faded in the final quarter.
Shame to lose that but it is the one I would have chosen to lose of this current run of games. Chelsea can focus on the EFL and Europa cups
Hazards goal was a belter. Sturridge managing to miss an open goal was pretty impressive too tbf.
Could have gone either way tbh . A couple of missed chanes for both teams but Hazard's goal was like honey from heaven.
Sat in the top tier of the new stand tonight for the first time I didn't like stitting that high up at all, I was however quite impressed that the seats seemed to have some sort of telepathic function.... cos I'd could see him fucking scoring from the minute the second half kicked off.
Once I'd adjusted my view I was quite surprised to find out how many non youth squad players we didn't have on the pitch tonight especially the way we were playing, mind you I thought Chelski had sent the kids up too. I said to my daughter "Who's the young kid that's just missed the sitter girl?"
"That's Sturridge dad, would you like to try my glasses" she replied.
Fuck specsavers I'll be back in the Kop from now on. Shit view, shit performance.
