Very frustrating. No threat up top. Milner’s conversion of crossing opportunities was beyond woeful, can’t afford to be so wasteful.

Salah should be fined two week's wages for that atrocious free kick in the first half. As for the in the box indirect one we got in the first minute

Completely toothless up front yet again. Can't say I'm enjoying watch us play much at the moment, mostly frustrating and when we do get a win it feels more like relief at the moment. The natural pessimist in me can't see us keeping ahead of or up with City for the rest of the season.

It should have been better, especially as United were not at full-strength. However, I was convinced that they were going to beat us, so it’s not so bad inthe end for me.

The problem isn't so much the result,I'd take a draw there every time,it was the level of performance .We were awful. If the front three are off then there's no threat from anywhere else on the pitch. Pointless having attacking full backs when the delivery is so dire.Milner has been a great pro but he's pretty much past it now.Klopp is struggling as well,he seems to have no ideas to get through well drilled defences.

Firmino having a scan today, they will no more tomorrow. He is unlikely to play on Wednesday

Also, Atkinson has been appointed as the ref for the derby

Great to see how being out of the domestic cups and being able to go off on warm weather jaunts is having a positive effect on our form.If the league started in January we would be 7th.

You should have played your best side against Wolves in the cup, bounced back with a decent win from defeat. But you avoided injuries, that was the most important thing right?

You're still a point ahead, it's in your hands as they say. A couple of wins and a draw from City and you're back in there being positive again!

Klopp has at least turned you into title contenders if not winners.

It's a bit presumptuous to say that the first choice would've beaten Wolves, who are a very good side then just off the back of beating Spurs. I don't think Lovren has recovered yet from the injury he got in that game - imagine the stick Klopp would've got if that had been Virgil!

I'm pretty sure in that same round of games both Manchester sides, Spurs and Arsenal made a lot of changes from their first choice, but no one gives a crap because they were playing lower league sides and won.

We've looked flat after both warm weather breaks, which should be enough to put a stop to the idea IMO. Just started to look back to attacking with some freedom against Bournemouth and then another break followed by two nil-nils

Highlights the terrible delivery from the right again on Sunday, what would TAA have done with the time and space Milner was granted?

No lift, he hit it into the ground and bounced.

You did us a favour knocking 5 past them though. Puts us back up to 7th.

City gifted a penalty tonight, doubt it'll get mentioned as much as the bad decisions that go for us

We played very well tonight, though Watford were surprisingly poor.need to carry this through to Sunday. Superb from Arnold who bounced back from a poor game against Bayern.

You need to let it go. We won't win the league because of a dodgy penalty decision. Both teams have had some soft decisions this season - funnily enough, the same as most teams most seasons.
