    Klopp "Unfortunately I have no clue. It was something with the ankle, that's for sure.

    "Bobby said first he can carry on, then he showed it doesn't work but I don't know exactly.

    "It's Bobby, so he will be treated along with all the others but first we have to know what it is exactly and we don't know at the moment.

    Bobby can be rested mid week against watford. Tbh Salah has been so bad lately he could do with being rested also with perhaps Shaq and Origi getting the nod

    Salahs first touch has been brutal and the amount of times he gave away pocession.. he looks low on confidence or something..

    Poor since the defeat against city. 8 average performances since with 4 draws coming in the last 5. Dunno if down to a blip or not but we were average today again. Nothing going forward - no spark.

    Luckily we've the the first half of the season to fall back on. Need a comprehensive result on Wednesday to get things positive again.

    Get back to playing mo through the middle. Were a far better side when he does. On the right he's essentially man marked against better sides and offers little.

    We were terrible but we're top of the league and we move onto the next one.

    Positives of the day are a point top after playing shite against a team on form who where up for it and have a habit of getting lucky winners against it us. Matip bar the thankful OG looking like VVD mark 2.
    Negatives front 3 form and not attacking the Manc left when they had a 1 legged Rashford and Ashley (Tom Daley) Young there for the taking.
    2 games in from warm weather training and usually we come again at this stage we come alive after those breaks.

    Yes we a point clear but by god was that just plain horrible to watch, ive had better dental appointments than that game. I taught klopp got both team selection and subs and tactics mid game wrong today, yes alot of players didnt stand up to the plate but if this costs us da title come the end of the season this should be one of the games seen as one where we lost it.

    Think many people are over reacting after today, yes we were far from our best but it’s a point away at old Trafford. The issues lie with our bench, there isn’t anything to come on a change a game and the front three feel no pressure as they know they will be playing every week regardless. City will drop more points as we will

    How will you know if it was this or Leicester or West Ham that "cost us" the title? Drawing away at OT is an acceptable result in any league winning season. We haven't let ourselves down at all this season, we're still in with a chance against what I believe is one of the top PL teams ever with 11 games to go, I think we're short that killer instinct that would have seen us push on earlier on but we're not short on fight and we'll leave everything on the field between now and may to win this thing. If we don't, that's on City just being better over 38 games

    Could do with a Phil Coutinho type in my opinion. Badly lacking in invention around the box or even the ability to take a decent long range shot.

    I realise we've got record points without him but doesn't mean we don't desperately need a player of that type right now. If we fall short hopefully that's where attention goes in the summer as we're obviously getting a lot else right

    Because we went up a depleted utd team today whose 3 of deyre first 11 were injured by half time yet we still dropped 2 points there , that to me was 2 points dropped and a missed opportunity. After the game soleskar had a smile on hes face like a cheshire cat while klopp looked stressed and pissed off, both know this could be a vital game for both of their seasons.

    A lot of talk about depleted United.

    Their bench cost the guts of 130 million.

    The front 4 that finished the game are probably on nearly a million quid a week between them.
