    Leicester aren't home and hosed, third place is up for grabs in my opinion. They have west ham away next. A cup semi final that may take focus away. There last 3 are United Chelsea and Spurs

    Anyone that would take Halaand over Mbappe doesn't understand football.

    Mbappe is a better player for sure but he's two years older and playing in a better team.

    In other news a goal and an assist from Lukaku last night, looks like he has Inter all but guaranteed to win their first Serie A in a while.

    Was interesting to read a third of Haalands goals have been tap ins inside the 6 yard box. I'd imagine there'll be quite a few poachers goals from between 6 and 10 yards too. Hadn't really got him down as a poacher but he obviously is which is a huge deal at his age because it shows great instincts. Add that to the pace and power and the sky is the limit. I think Mbappe will be the best player of his generation though.

    I read that article and watched his goals. He's like a huge Jota, if there is a chance to be had he doesn't hang around wondering. The figure of a third is very deceiving though, there is a good few where he rounds the keeper and taps in from 3 yards, the vast majority are from through balls, 1st touch 16 yards out, smash past the keeper from 10-12 yards.

    Definitely interesting to watch him though, I wonder if he will be like Carroll or Lukaku and forget what makes him good. He recognises his strength is his strength, he like a rugby player barging through people, if he continues at that he will score plenty. If he tries to refine his game and prove he has a good touch for a big man then he will amount to nothing.

    Having studied him on YouTube for 20 minutes I've decided I don't want the entire budget gone on him, my confirmation bias is telling me he's just on an extremely hot streak.

    I haven't bothered with the YouTube videos, I'm actively avoiding non Liverpool related football and I didn't even read the article,I just read the headline but I find it hard to believe 35 goals within the 6 yard box can be misleading Bob. I will watch the YouTube videos though to see where you're coming from. Not tonight though,we're binging Married At First Sight Australia,proper car crash TV.

    Quick 1 minute video here I think sums up what I'm trying to say. He scores 2 goals, both from inside 6 yards, the first one he has scored about 50 of and the 2nd one about 10. When someone says he scored millions from inside the 6 yard box I think its safe to assume most people think you would mean the 2nd type.



    I'm not knocking him by the way, more the article. I read it thinking I didn't think he was that type of player and when I watched it he wasn't that type of player. Its very easy to describe his goals, 95% are left foot finishes into the corner from 10-16 yards out. Only about 4 headers and 2 shots from outside box. That's Dorrmund and Salzburg only, so I reckon 70 goals.

    surely the first time we have ever played the first saturday 3 o clock match all season in april.

    I think the break from playing at anfield for just over a month will stand to us, the boys will want to put Tuesday night behind them too it doesn't have to be performance of the season just get the win to go above chelsea even if only for 2 and a half hours. No excuse for losing to fulham in the manner we did but there is a world of difference from not having played at home in over a month and that loss to chelsea and the quick turn around to sundays match when we were used to playing, and not winning, there

    That's never a red. Cooper goes to win the ball, wins it and both players momentum take them into to each other

    Ref should have had the balls to stick with on field decision.

    VAR official? David Coote.

    Leeds do a smash and grab on City. Counter attack goal that we typically let in.

    Just watched highlights there and red card for me his momentum had him out of control and the follow through was reckless imo
