I would have to question what lucas was doing for the second goal.Mascot88 said:Some of you need a cold reality check.
I don't care whether the team you're playing is top or bottom - you never expect an easy ride away from home.
Any win away from home is a good result. Winning by two clear goals is great. Yes, there are some performance issues, but again, it isn't realistic to expect to have our own way for 90mins, especially away from home. Sunderland were always going to have spells of dominance.
We all want to see Liverpool teams batter sides, I really wanted to see the team steamroller Sunderland - but we also need to accept a good win with grace and realism.
Thought (contrary to everyone again) Lucas was strong in the centre - didn't really do much wrong, although his performance dipped towards the end.
Not a lot came off for Luis, but he still got two tap-ins, thanks to Sturridge - who was MOTM for me. Toure was the leader at the back, Sakho was immense and Mignolet was reliable as ever.
Very happy with the win and improved performance.
Hardly any kind of attempt to close down the strike from ki for the goal. Really poor play for it. Should be trying to close a strike down quicker than that.
Couple of times second half when enrique was left 2 on 1 lucas took forever to get over to him and give him support. That is one of his main jobs to get acroos and offer the cover in those situations
