Very open game so far...Lingard should have done better, but then he's pretty crap these days!

Great result, but mixed emotions

...they wouldn't have caught them anyway! Seems Leicester is our only hope...

...we're up to fifth, City are leaking goals and Chelsea are dropping points...maybe fourth isn't unrealistic after all!!

It would be hilarious if Rodgers wins the title with Leicester

What I love about this "look how good this Leicester run is" approach ... in this winning 8 game run, who have they actually played that you wouldn't normally expect a half decent side to beat ?

They're the closest placed team to Liverpool. Everyone outside of Merseyside, North Wales and Norway will be behind them.

They're on a club record run, but I agree, the only team of note they have beaten is Arsenal, and they are bobbins at the moment.

I'm old enough to remember the 70s. I* would be happy to see Liverpool win the league again.

*From none of the places mentioned above.

Same. Anything but City or Chelsea to be fair.

Yeh, any new winner is decent. It'll get boring if they win for the next ten years. Even someone making it a decent title challenge is alright.

This one has inevitability all over it, probably do it with a good few games to spare.

Well, we're off the back of wins against City and Spurs, so a little surprising

Seems like, on a weekend where we could have gone 5th and only 2 points off 4th, United are going to reward its loyal fans by flopping down to 7th against an injury ravaged Everton...after beating Spurs and City...FFS!

2-0 down to a team who are not even playing a striker.

Am I the last one watching this bunch? Hard to see a reason to keep doing so. It's awful.
