SAME OLD SCOUSERS,
Take that you despicable fucking twats with your nasty chanting.
Must admit I did not pick up on the chants. Thought they gave Keita a lot of unwarranted stick though.
This was a tricky match that City struggled in but we made it look fairly comfortable most of the time. That my friends is title contending stuff. They played in a way that we weren't used to seeing thus an average showing from us in the first half but by the 2nd half we had them figured out and it was smooth as silk sailing in the second half. Title contending stuff. Top class performances from Salah, Fabinho and VvD who just happen to be the spine of the team is also great to see. Though Alisson had little to do he still did it well and didn't let them back into the math like what would have happened if Mignolet or Karius were in goal. Some are praising Henderson for his performance but personally I didn't see it. He was for once played as the box-2-box midfielder and he provided nothing in the attacking half, still made sideways passes some long early on and 1 forward pass in the 2nd half that got us out of danger. Still expected more from him.
I thing we should not get carried away with is this thing with being top at Christmas. In the last decade or so we have been top 2 other times at Christmas yet finished 2nd both times while every other team that were top at Christmas went on to win the league.
With all due respect mate I suggest you watch the game again with an open mind and open eyes. Henderson did in fact play very well. Just because he is not a flashy player he is under rated. Jurgen obviously sees his value.
