The Reds were far from convincing and only just got over the line – but the important thing is that we did just that.
Another team might have scored, but as it was, Alisson’s goal remained unbreached. Only three strikes have beaten him in the league this season, which after nine games is a club record, and Jurgen Klopp’s side remain joint-top of the table.
Should we be happy with the win, or disappointed at the performance? Probably both.
In a game that was tight and edgy, the Reds got the three points; these tweets outlined the thoughts of fans and onlookers afterwards.
This is probably Liverpool’s best EPL start, we are joint top of the league after 9 games, unbeaten, yet our performances are not convincing.

Not sure I’ve been that angry during a Liverpool win since that 3-2 at QPR under Brendan Rodgers. Really lacklustre, sloppy stuff from the Reds today. Against a better side they would dropped two, possibly all three points. Anyway, a win’s a win. I’m off to have my dinner.

People moaning that Liverpool were poor again, get a grip mate we have been craving these kind of results for a good few years. Play shit, win & don’t concede. We would have drew that last season. Happy days #LFC

That’s the sign of a good side, Liverpool not at their best but winning, turned those draws from the last two seasons into wins this season
