    We played a lot better earlier in season. Right now we play a lot more like LFS team than a Sarri team. I was bored watching us play. The only player on the pitch who was attempting one touch passes was Kante. Everyone else was hogging on to the ball. Most of our possession in front of the oppostion midfield. The only way you score is either through the speculative or the spectacular. Where is the superfast series of passes that break open a defence? Where is that movement to confound opposition players? As I said, Kante seems the only person bothered to play by the Sarri Book. Everyone else seems to be doing there own thing. You can keep possession by playing safe passes, but there's really no point to it if you are doing it fast enough This can go 3 ways: 1. Sarri makes the players realise they are reverting back to old school conservatism on the pitch and correct it. 2. Things remain the same. Sarri gets more and more agitated. The players get demotivated. Results get worse. Sarri gets sacked. 3. We buy players more suited to Sarriball

    It would be nice to hear fans sing his song while he is around. I can't recall hearing anything on the telly.

    Switch the positions of Kante and Kovacic?

    Usually a mark of a good politician; and in today's world, a career manager

    I can't help but think the best thing to do for Sarri will be to start without a striker. Get Kante, Kovacic and Barkley to press relentlessly.

    Something similar to what Mourinho attempted with Oscar.

    This has the look of the pre season Arsenal game.

    Not quite Sarri ball. This will suit Jose big time.

    Most of what Neville says applies to us as well

    As bad as Morata is and as underwhelming as Giroud is, what are our options in the transfer market for a striker? The only one I can think of is Icardi.

    With a little bit more quality in the attack department we would have comfortably won this. While Hazard stands head and shoulders above the rest, as a unit, Liverpool (and City) are considerably more dangerous in attack compared to us. Today's game would have taught Sarri a lot of things. Firstly, that our midfield is one of the best in the league today. Jorginho still needs to get used to the pace of the league, but he will get there. Secondly, our defence, while not the finest around, will make do. It is clearly not our weakness. And finally, the next steps in first team improvement has to be striker and right winger. Willian was completely off his game today. Kante was decent. For me our Man of the match was Kovacic.

    Liverpool are playing very well. This has more the look of a CL first leg KO than a league game. I for one am glad that we are not being needlessly cavalier.

    I would like to see a small tweak in Sarri's usual line up Kepa Azpi - Rudiger (if available) - Luiz - Alonso Kovacic - Jorginho - Kante Willian - Giroud - Hazard I'd like to see Alonso high up with Kante covering his side

    Issues the way I see it 1. Lack of an express pace winger who can breeze past players (Like CHO) 2. Lack of a striker who can occupy centre backs (Like Drogba or Costa) The problem is that Hazard and Willian are too similar. Both dwell on the ball, like to come deep and start attacks. We could have done with Pedro today. With the available players I would have done the following differently: Have Kovacic play on the right instead of Kante and instruct him to make runs to support Giroud Have Alonso at a very high position on the left with Kante playing slightly deeper to cover the side Have CHO on the bench
