Watching last night’s game was the kind of experience you wouldn’t wish on your enemy.
The nerves and emotions were incredible and it’s actually hard to properly analyse the defeat at the time.
Having woken up and seen we’re still four points clear though, it’s a little easier.
Liverpool played well early on and soaked up pressure, had our chances, and ended up pressuring our opponents whose two goals were genuinely world-class finishes.
They should have had a man sent off, too.
Liverpool’s goal was actually exceptional, as well. It didn’t just start with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s left-footed ball, but a long time beforehand. In fact, the entire move is 45 seconds long and features multiple switches of play.
Trent actually begins the attack deep in his own half with a clever scooped pass, then bangs a lovely cross-field ball, before receiving it again for his final cross!
Beautiful football, this. Beautiful.
I was too invested in the game to realise just how good this goal was at the time but my word, what a brilliant team goal! This is a genuine goal of the season contender. pic.twitter.com/yIMvjeUrxi
