Disappointing for the fans from 3 points to just one point, but at least we kept our record against Klopp who remained winless at OT.

And of course Rojo should have cut the ball out. Or Young should be better trained as a defender after playing in that position for so long

Oh well. Letís just hope they have the same spirit for the games to come and not only for the big games

The method is definitely wrong.
Scored a goal and regress, go into defending at home ground.

It is indeed 2 points lost.

Outstanding players, not player

James, AP, SM and also Fred

Bisssaka at the end also no more steam to run and defend that cross from Robertson.

We knew the game plan of Liverpool is to bomb forward with their 2 wing backs, and we allowed them to cross like a training match in the end.

This is really unacceptable.

Hope SAF can advise OGS to kill the game United's way i.e. Score more goals and not rely on the single goal and defend. We had them by the neck and we let it go.

I felt that fred is not effective.
He had some actions on the field and lost possesions many times.
Got 1 good chance at goal but he blew it.
We had a good game at 1st half but lost the plot in the 2nd.
Not able to contain their fast counter attack.
Our midfielders not able to control the pace of the game.
We were seen defending in the last 20mins.

I donít agree with you. In my opinion this is a world of difference from all the matches that we have played this season, apart from Chelsea of course. Can you even imagine the scoreline if we played like how we played against Newcastle?

Yes they noticeably tired towards the end. But at least there is spirit

Spirit is good I agree, but the application is wrong.
We scored, played defending, hoping to hold out and we draw.

Soak and strike is ok if your midfield and defence is very very strong.
Look at the bench, there is no midfield to take over the tired legs of SM, Fred, AP.

James already knocked so many times and looked very very tired, but we replaced Rashford instead.

We draw games in the 2nd half, even though OGS said our fitness improved?
Wolves, Arsenal.....we were leading going into 1/2 time, but we never finished them off.

End of the day, we knew they will come at us, but we did not go and get the 2nd cushion goal we needed. And when they scored, we suddenly looked like the ones that will concede the 2nd goal.

Don't get me wrong, this game is played in the right attitude, but come next week when we play Norwich, can we play like that again?

Football is always so full of "opinions"
When the team does not get their results, they will blame the wind, the grass, the ref, the VAR, the opponents parking buses, etc etc. But when they win, everything was superb, even if their players dived to earn a last min penalty with the slightest of touch.
That's football. We are fully aware of our own position, and as long as the lads give their all, that is all we as supporters are asking for....haha...once in a while with some "divine interventions"

One thing for sure, at least we did not "contribute" to their title march.

Hahahaha ...... the meltdown was hilarious ......

the so called " foul " was ridiculous .....
they expected VAR to overturn referee's decision when the referee is so near to the incident and didn't call a foul ....
it was such a subjective call where some will say foul, some say no and yet, they expect VAR to side their call .......

serious ?

if there's anything that contributed to the flow of the game, it is the number of fouls they committed which means the game needs to be stopped and pull back

A much improved performances let down by poor defending allowing Pools to equalize.

Hope Pierrera will learn from this game too.
He did made some poor decisions, should have pass the ball to teammates who are in a better position instead of shooting

We must continue to build on after a spirited fight against Pools. game.
