    Coming into this weekend of fixtures Leicester were top. They would have continued top with a win tonight.

    What a statement tonight
    How good is Fabinho in that defence? Himself and Matip are solid af.
    4 clean sheets in our last 7 games without Virgil.

    Super performance tonight. Given all the injuries it makes it even more impressive.

    5 or 6 nil wouldn't have flattered us tonight,and they're a good side. To be that good with the players we have missing is something else. Without the best RB in the world,the best CB in the world,having to play the best defensive midfielder in the world at CB because we were also without England's best CB. Throw in that we were without England's best midfielder and our top scorer aswell,yet we still put in a performance as impressive as any other team has managed this season.

    Pity about Keita because he was playing well but to be honest I've given up all hope of him being a success at Liverpool. We're into his third season and he still hasn't shown any consistency. I know a lot of that is down to injuries but If you're a Leicester fan you'd of been pulling your hair out at Albrightons crossing,it was abysmal and he sold himself really badly for the second goal. How much does Maddison dive by the way? He makes Jack Grealish look like Vinnie Jones and the ref was protecting him like he was an endangered species.

    I wonder how City would do without Walker, Dias, Laporte, KDB, Rodri and Sterling?

    I love when this team absolutely spanks a wannabe challenger...we had 5 of the worlds best players in their positions missing and we throttled them

    Very good result.

    Delighted for Bobby - he probably should have had a hatrick

    Really comfortable win. Shows the power of the squad when 8 first team squad men are out (include Shaq and Ox) and ease pass Leicester.

    Get the win in midweek, seal qualification and play kids in last two games to save legs.

    Great win and a fine performance.

    A pity about Naby getting injured again as he was playing decent.

    Leicester didn't show ambition at all.

    Maddison does like to fall over but we were happy to help him down. We fouled him early and regularly, brilliant display of disrupting them in transition. We do it so well, make contact above the hip and knock them over with out picking up cards. Bobby Firmino wasn't booked in the first 30 or so games last season (may have gone the whole season, I haven't checked but at one point he had the most fouls without a card). Jones was brilliant at this and so was Naby while he was on.

    At kick off in the match who was top of the league - can only beat the league leaders if your playing them not the team that was top 24 hours previous- I take your point albeit technically wrong one

    I think the reason we pick up so few yellow cards Bob is because the fouls aren't intentional. I don't think a lot of them were fouls at all but Klopp hates his players giving up fouls and I believe most of it isn't tactical fouling.

    If you look at the vast majority of our fouls, they are invariably the result of running along side opposition player trying to regain possession using body position and strength rather than just pulling a Fernadinho and kicking someone in the knee. When you add in that usually theres at least 2 if not 3 players all crowding the player in possession, the refs seem to think theyre obliged to give a free as soon as the opposition player goes to ground.
    Not for a minute trying to say we dont foul, as we obviously do but there were several cases last night where Milner in particular won the ball cleanly, but the Leicester player got a free for going over.

    Anywho, great performance, and result. I wouldnt say Leicester showed no ambition - its their style now and it served them well when they battered City playing exactly as they played last night

    That was a remarkable performance last night, I wasn't really sure what to expect with so many changes and had a bit of concern about Milner at full back but he was actually probably the stand out performer in a lot of ways. He was absolutely destroying Leicester with his early balls in behind their defence which disrupted their gameplan entirely. They kept shovelling the ball down his channel and he continued to make them pay and their failure to move on from that plan lost them their foothold very early on.

    We'll have tougher games this season for sure but it was refreshing to see such a zip about our play last night especially considering it was off the back of an international window and we're carrying so many injuries.

    Was not expecting that level of performance. I thought we would get over the line, but just about.
