Should we be happy or sad following the 1-1 result against Manchester City on Sunday?
Before the game, I probably would have taken a point from this game considering how well City are going in the league but having outplayed them for large periods of the game on Sunday, I feel we should have taken all 3 points.
We were very unlucky not to score one or two more goals as City’s goalkeeper Hart made some amazing saves. It is not the first time this season that a keeper has come to Anfield and denied us from taking all 3 points.
In my opinion, our midfield trio of Lucas, Adam and Henderson did very well as they bossed the City midfield. I had to remind myself at times if Silva and Nasri were actually playing as they did nothing all game.
Credit too to our defence which did well besides letting in the goal from a corner. Agger and Skrtel continue to impress and it will be tough for Carragher to make his way back into the starting lineup.
Suarez was surprisingly quiet in this game but just having him on the field, you know that he is capable of springing a moment of brilliance as he almost did at the death if it were not for a brilliant save by Hart.
There is not anyone in a Liverpool shirt you can say flopped on Sunday for us. It was a good team performance and if we can continue playing at that level, a top four finish is not beyond us.
After the game Dalglish said, “I don’t think we could have asked for more. In terms of effort and commitment from the players, they were fantastic.
“City started the game better than us, I thought, and scored a goal just as we were getting a foothold in the game. We equalised quickly with a piece of good fortune but that’s where the good luck ran out for us.
“We’ve come up against a goalkeeper who has done what three or four others have done here (this season). He had a fantastic game. Eventually we’ll come up against a goalkeeper who is not saving everything that hits him.”
