How does VAR not call that back Mertens was clearly looking to foul Van Dijk and get an advantage. It’s a yellow card offence every day and then he goes on to score, bizarre

Woeful ... but a good result for the ref, a nice little bonus in a brown envelope for him tonight I'd wager

Our crossing was lacking, but we were far the better team. Napoli got lucky.

I disagree tbh. Napoli did little and there is no way their goal should have stood 1-0 to us would have probably been a fair score.

There was no need for Napoli to do much, given a draw was perfect for them. If it was us away from home it would be labelled a classic European away from home performance

I would certainly take a 1-1 result in two weeks time Napoli certainly didn't need to win - and played like it for most of the match.

Salzburg away is not going to be easy by any means and it would have been so much better if we had won yesterday ( and we created more than enough chances to do so )

Oh look, there's that Liverpool getting lucky with injuries again.

That's Alisson, Matip, Gomez, Keita, Lallana, Salah, Ox and Fabinho all out with lengthy injuries or playing through injuries. But some will insist we haven't had any.

Atkinson really does hate us, doesn't he ? And he is the VAR on Wednesday

We were poor again and Allison was correctly sent off. I hate Atkinson but i'm not sure what he did today, are you moaning about their smart free kick? If we'd done it you'd call it smart quick thinking.

Totally agree about the quality of our play ( especially in the 2nd half ) and the Allison red card but ... it is against the rules now for an attacking player to be within 1m of the wall when the kick is taken, and if they are then it's a free kick to the defending team. There is a Brighton player barely 10cm away from the wall net alone 1m And that is on top of the moment when Atkinson chooses to blow his whistle for the kick to be taken.

Still, looks like we are safe from relegation

This is the forums Liverpool thread. It was always mostly whingeing about refs, now with twice as much whingeing due to VAR being used and three times as much for it not being used.

We all know VAR is crap, but it’s here to stay

Everton at home in the FA Cup.

Hopefully we are one of the Sunday games; Monday night would be a real pain. If we get past Villa, on the 17th, then it will definitely be the Sunday as it is League Cup semi finals on the 8th/9th

What are the odds? Twice in 3 seasons in the 3rd round!

No surprise that Messi wins the Ballon d'Or , ahead of VvD, after such a successful season ... NOT

Still, 4 LFC players in the Top 7 - not too shabby

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, it's now pretty much just an ass kissing exercise for "The Best 2 players who have ever lived, ever, of all time™"

It was a massive shock last year, but I guess the press hype plus playing in a World Cup final and winning the Champions League whilst playing for RM just about held off the challenge of the triple superhuman achievements of winning Serie A + CL last 8 + WC last 16

Yeh its a shame the PL is so competitive. Think how many goals Salah would score if they could reliably chuck about ten goals past half the teams in the division.

I've said it before, no real thought goes into it. It's just a vote isn't it? Can't imagine half the voters could tell you why they voted as they did.
