    CMS would give us more energy than Murray.....but still didn't impact the match

    In his 20’s prime CMS struggled to make a success of being a Championship striker. VVD and Fabinho, and just about any other PL defence would have had the shuttle runner in their pocket.

      Liverpool just weren't at the races today. It was almost as if there was another team on the pitch.

      I share your feelings! Some people might nee reminding that we lost this fixture 1-5 last season. lots of pundit comments about how well Liverpool did to grind out a result when not playing well, but seem to ignore that we are well organised and CAN DEFEND!
      We can defend! I'm still staggered that this lot didn't even start today - incredible:

      Ryan
      Balogan - Bernardo
      Knocky - Kayal - Ali J - Jose - Bissouma
      Andone

      I thought CH expertedly didn’t allow them to play and play the type of game they wanted, especially first half.

      Although in doing that CH is now being criticised by a few other posters who thought he chose the wrong team and by Wrighty on MOTD who was very unimpressed with our unadventurous approach.

      6 = average

      Button 6 - Marked down 1 for some truly awful kicking 2nd half. Doing well but Maty needn't worry.
      Montoya 7 - Kept Mane very quiet
      Duffy 7 - Just a shame we didn't force a few more set pieces
      Dunk 8 - MOTM. Assured.
      Bong 6 - Good defensively but just not a good enough footballer for this level, why was he STILL outside our box when Gross fouled Salah. We missed Bernado today.
      March 5 - So frustrating. The lad has real talent but looks scared to use it. Bottled a 1 on 1 chance with Van Dyck 2nd half and was hooked a few minutes later.
      Stephen 7 - I thought this was his best game since Utd.
      Propper 7 - Excellent first half, faded a bit second.
      Locadia 7 - See Propper. Massive improvement since we switched formation.
      Gross 5 - OK first half, awful second. Needs to improve and quickly if he wants to retain his starting place.
      Murray 4 - Totally slowed us down. The header was very difficult to score from but he still has to hit the target. Not the game to start him in IMO as we were always going to set up more as the away side.

      Knockaert 6.5 - Actually started to run at them and they didn't like it.
      Andone 6 - Should have started IMO. Will be disappointed with half chance near the end. Must start at Old Trafford.
      Kayal n/a - Should have replaced Gross earlier.

      Hughton 6 - I agree we had to keep it tight but I thought he waited too long to change it once we went behind, plus Andone should have started.

      Button 6
      Montoya 7
      Duffy 7
      Dunk 7
      Bong 7
      March 5 (Knockaert 66min, 5)
      Groß 5 (Kayal 79min, 5)
      Stephens 6
      Pröpper 6
      Locadia 6
      Murray 5 (Andone 66min, 6)

      Solid defence against one of the best teams in Europe.

      On the negative side an abysmal game of football to watch from both sides, with us failing to hit the target once and Liverpool only three times.

      Liverpool didn't look like a top of the table side, but as we are told on numerous occasions by pundits and media alike, this is the best league in the world, really?
      Weather forecast for tonight: dark.

      Button - 6 - Had surprisingly little to do
      Montoya - 7 - solid against Mane
      Bong - 7 - Had a good game. Put a couple of decent crosses in
      Duffy - 7 - MOTM - an absolute beast of a performance again
      Dunk - 7 - Solid
      Stephens - 7 - Put in a very good shift. Wasteful a couple of times but pivotal in stopping them dominating the game
      Propper - 6 - Much less influence than in the Christnas fixtures
      Gross - 5 - A fantastic ball for Murray in the first half but gave away a soft penalty and had could have done better with that chance in the second half
      March - 5 -A pretty typical performance, workmanlike and protected his full back well but little threat. That said, lovely ball for Locadia when offside
      Locadia - 6 - involved in all of our better moments,Some great passing
      Murray - 5 - He's in the team to take chances like that first half header

      Knockaert - 7 - Added some much needed energy
      Andone - 6 - Better than Murray. Should be starting
      Kayal - 6 - Little influence
      I think your assessment is about right

      Factually correct they were at the Amex where they were restricted to no goals from open play

      Thought Hughton did brilliantly, however I would have had Andone starting as Murray offers very little in terms of ‘out’ ball.

      Every time we cleared it, they just started again.

      With their full backs pushed up when they were attacking, there was always a hole to exploit when we got the ball. Andone would have offered that.

      watched via stream 6 = satisfactory

      Button 6 Did all that was expected of him
      Montoya 6 Competent all round performance
      Duffy 7 Usual reliability
      Dunk 6.5 Generally rteliable but too many errors
      Bong 7 Good performance defending and getting forward but final cross could have been better at times
      March 5 So much ability but infuriating
      Stephens 7 Did for us what Henderson did for them
      Propper 6 Not one of his best performances but still not the weak link
      Gross 5 Poor game generally and terrible penalty to concede
      Locadia 6 Showed good signs but not enough opf them
      Murray 5 Won nothing wasted afternoon

      Knockaert 6 Added some life and pace
      Andone 6 As per AK better than GM by a mile
      Kayal 5 Not on long enough to really judge but no improvement on Gross

      Ref: 5 Should note there are 2 teams on the pitch not just the 'big team'

      CH 6 Positive subs at the right time unfortunately didnt work as once they scored the game was over as we wouldn't haw scored if still playing now. More a question of stopping a 2nd.
