Fitting tribute to a wonderful man. RIP Nelson Mandela.
Hope the injury isn’t too serious.
Had a good game today but should’ve probably grabbed himself a goal or two.
MOTM for me: Philippe Coutinho
What more can you say? Luis Suarez and Norwich…Norwich fans must be sick of him lol.
Our eccentric number 7:
He seemed almost as shocked as we were with that 3rd goal:
I have no words, still buzzing so enjoy the pictures instead. Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend (here in North America).
Lol the United fans’ faces…
Bwahaha! Phil Neville!
Another close, nerve-jangling game with Mignolet, Toure & Sturridge being the stand out performers.
And the new boy:
Okay I’ve calmed down a little now, well enough to write a recap of sorts at least. Debuts for Aspas, Toure and Mignolet and every single one of them gave a good account of themselves.
Game started off with a good pace. We pressed well and had some good movement. In all honesty we could’ve and should’ve had a goal way before the one we actually got but the woodwork (where have I heard this story before) denied Kolo Toure a debut goal and a better pass would’ve put Aspas in for his.
The woodwork also saved us when Huth (really, really don’t like this guy) hit it after a Stoke set piece.
Also, Begovic was just immense today and I honestly thought “here we go again”, a draw at Anfield because the keeper has an absolute blinder.
Lucky for us that Daniel Sturridge wasn’t having any of it and just before half time he curled one in from outside the box to give Liverpool the lead.
And he got lots of love too for it:
Second half was pretty good. Jordan Henderson hit the woddwork, Begovic made loads of saves keeping Stoke in the game and every time Stoke had a set piece, I watched through my fingers.
And for good reason because right at the end of the game, Daniel Agger (for some unexplicable reason) decided to handball in the box and Stoke got a penalty and all us Reds I’m sure thought “just our luck.”
MIgnolet, who honestly looked really shaky early on and flapped a few times during set pieces had to face a penalty to prevent a game we should’ve wrapped up long ago turning into a draw. And boy did he step up.
Not once, but twice.
I probably celebrated that save more than the goal.
All in all, I’m delighted with the 3 points because Stoke is not an easy team to beat especially because they seem to be our boogey team so I’ll take the win today.
MOTM: could easily go to Sturridge, Mignolet, Lucas or Coutinho but I’m goign to give it to Kolo Toure who was immense back there today.
Erm…I forgot to make a post of the last LFC game so here are the pics instead:
This little guy is magic!!!
