Liverpool walks away with a point from Old Trafford after Adam Lallana scores a late equaliser.
A Point Is Better Than Nothing
There is no arguing that we should have gone there today with the form that we are in and win that game but, the way the match was going and how we were performing a point is great for us.
I’m not sure what was going on with us today, we couldn’t string a decent pass together and couldn’t keep hold of the ball for long enough to create an opportunity. I was really up for this game, the return of Alisson gave us a massive boost and even though Mo Salah was missing up front, Divock Origi is more than capable of doing the job but it just didn’t click.
VAR can get in the bin btw.
Divock Origi was clearly fouled in the build-up to that goal so I’m unsure what the reason was that they didn’t give a free-kick or rule their goal out. The only reason I could think of was that Origi turned into Scott McTominay meaning I don’t think he could actually progress that play but really it is a foul and I’d like to know the reasoning behind it.
Can’t really complain about Mane’s goal being ruled out because it did hit his hand, although it was not deliberate and he didn’t know anything about it, it is a handball.

I thought the substitutions he Jurgen Klopp made today where great. Adam Lallana can offer you that bit of calmness and he is able to keep hold of the ball in tight spaces and of course grabs us that late winner wafter a good ball into the box from Robertson and a good timed run from the Englishman, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain offers you that bit of pace and drive in midfield and I was happy to see a midfielder have some shots on goal and then Naby Keita also offers that calmness but can also pick out a pass and see things no one else could so here’s hoping those three get more minutes because that are great players.
Genk Up Next
Big game in the Champions League on Wednesday night and we will all be hoping for a much better performance than today. It is always tough to go away from home, especially in Europe, so we need to be at our best and get three more points on the board in the Champions League.
All in all, not our best performance today but we remain unbeaten and stay on top of the Premier League.
