    Two subs in the first half, we're brutalising this Chelsea team.

    Carragher's basically just said what I've been thinking for the past 20 mins <ok>

    An ok first half. Thought we dominated about the first 20mins, but after we scored we just seemed to open up and let chelsea get at us.

    We need to improve second half.

    About the defence sitting a bit deeper?

    Yeah, particularly with Tammy's pace. Tbf I can understand why we're holding a high line and trying to play them offside, but seems too high risk

    I think it’s been around 20 mins since the offside incident and I bet Martin Tyler is still crying about it. He genuinely can’t let it go.

    In the second half, Chelsea are going to come at us, we need to defend well.

    Our pace and fluidity is fantastic, and no shortage of muscle in midfield :emoticon-0165-muscl

    Commentators are doing my head with the insistence that with VAR, the defenders job is easier. Does it ****! If it's close, they don't flag, that means if it's close they play on regardless and it only gets checked if it results in a goal!

    I don't agree with the entire defence going deeper. Tammy as only genuinely broke through once, the danger is the ball over the top behind Trent, Alonso is free every time. Just tell Trent to hang back a bit more or Hendo to drop in for him

    He was clearly offside, no doubt about it

    well so far so (sort of) good .Really nice set piece for first but the second was pretty simple if well executed.
    Defence still looking pretty dodgy and i fully expect them to score.

    still hate VAR but <laugh>

    As Souness just said; you can't be a little bit pregnant. It's either offside or it's not. He was.

    We played a high line the start of last season, but that was with Gomez in the side, who I'm confident would catch most , matip on the other hand isnt catching anybody.

    Salah has actually tracked back a couple of tomes this half which is refreshing to see.

    The right side of our defence is always targeted as our weakest, Henderson has helped out there a fair bit to shore it up .
