    Salah was bad. Klopp's subs were worse.

    Klopp's away decision making has been atrocious

    Need three points and Keita and Shaqiri stay on the bench in favor of James Milner and Adam Lallana. There’s obviously some rationale but I just don’t know what that could possibly be.

    Straight up outplayed? You must just be watching the box scores.

    Liverpool didn’t finish well in any of the last few they’ve dropped points, but other than at times in the United match, they’ve not been outplayed. Heck, they’ve still been keeping clean sheets. Everton had energy and some chances, but so did Liverpool.

    They’ve not been good enough, I’m first to say that, but it might be more to the mean than falling apart or getting outplayed.

    Liverpool’s 74% pass success rate the worst they’ve had this season.

    I’m in the camp that thinks this is Liverpool regressing to the mean. It’s just even more terrible optically because City is top.

    I'm in the camp that Klopp is being an idiot and not putting the right players in the game for stupid reasons.

    In any case, Liverpool and City weren't going to win every match the rest of the season. We'll see what happens next.

    They’re not that boring but its night and day regarding this pool team now vs their form in 2018. Not even close to how composed and dynamic they were in the beginning of the season.

    Honestly if i'm a Liverpool fan a draw in this fixture does not drive my panic forward. Going to Goodison park is always going to be tough for pool. Everton always puts all they are into the game and they showed that again today. Many great tackles and blocks from Everton and they overall were putting in a ton of enrgy to frustrate Liverpool.

    If this was a 0-0 away at Cardiff than yeah I would be panicked.

    Yeah, the substitutions were weird. Not the first time that’s been a question with Klopp.

    Shaqiri has fallen off the face of the earth though

    It isn't the draw persay, but the way they are playing. I think this was their most difficult match left, with Spurs and Chelsea at Anfield. Neither city or them were going to win out. But this just makes it that much harder. No panic from me, but they need to play better.

    I'm sure City will drop points, that's not the issue.

    Let's say City drop points 3 times. I think that would be a miracle, but let's just say.

    Liverpool are looking at winning 8 out of 10 in that scenario to win the league. The way they're going, I don't see Liverpool winning 8 out of 50.

    Maybe he needs to figure out how to protect his players from the wind.

    And just saw that Leicester let Vardy play while suffering a concussion. They really need to get with the times and treat concussions seriously.

    Klopp has reverted to his relying on the old guard strategy, which has cost Liverpool mightily. I'm done with all these Rodgers players. Milner is absolutely finished. Henderson should not be starting. Lallana should not be playing.

    Mane in the center worked against Watford because it surprised them. Everton were ready for it, and I don't think Mane touched the ball.

    Major transfer news after today's matches:

    • Brendan Rodgers has identified Deulofeu as his #1 transfer target.
    • Solskjaer has told Woodward to get a Sanchez-Deulofeu swap done.

    I guess it makes sense. With Salah´s haircut (or lack of) even a small breeze could be rather challenging to handle - or at least it looked like it.

    Losing the league because of the wind. Tragic.

    Good to see Everton at least have enough pride to get a result against Liverpool. Still a bunch of underachievers though.
