"We played really really well, controlling the tempo of the play and keeping possession for most of the time played, we had more corner kicks, a better passes completion, a better accuracy, but a lesser number of shots on goal. For this I say the draw was fair..."

"Under KK Enrique was an important player in the early part of last season when we started well and showed again yesterday he's ready to come back into the team this time hopefully he will be rested when needed."

"Stats, stats and damn lies. Again possession does not translate into goals. Lets start winning our all important home games and playing away like the 2nd half against CFC. Then show me these stats. Forever Red!"

"Yes a lot of possession in first half but no penetration, i doubt we had a shot on goal first half. You can have 90% possession and no penetration = no goals. Add to that defensive lapses and you are likely to lose! Chelsea should ahve been 3 0 up after 60 mins. However we came back well so well done to the team"

"Outpassing any team means sweet F A.We do it to most if not all teams we play,It's the big problem of NOT SCORING that has cost us so many points.I would love it if all teams out passed us as long as we got the GOALS to win the match!!"

"The important thing now is to follow up this well earned draw with Chelski with a solid victory against Wigan at Anfield. 3 points next week is absolutely crucial to build up some momentum and get some confidence back. "

"Rodgers. "We finished eighth last year. If we can improve on that, it'll be fantastic for us." Forget about top four."

"By passin it back or sidewards. Hardly ever forwards. Chelsea where out passed but looked more dangerous. And created more chances. Explain that fact. "

"Yeah And Brendan admitted we passed too much, as we didn't achieve anything.Passing is no use unless it has an end product which ours doesn't. Our goal came from a set piece (which makes a change) but we got nothing in open play."

"This is getting ridiculous Arsenal 'Outpassed' Norwich last week and lost!! Barcelona 'outpassed' Celtic last week and Lost Barcelona Outpassed Chelsea in the CL final - and LOST We have 'outpassed' almost every team we have played in the Premier League this season and won just 2 Games!! What matters in football is WINNING"

"The league table. The points we have is the only stat that matters. All the passing in the world don't mean a thing if we ain't winning. "

"I hope we stick with the 352 formation, it works well for us. We dont have quality wingers, but in Enrique and Johnson we have 2 good attacking full backs who can get up and down and offer support in attack whilst also dropping back when needed at the back. Forget this 433 lark until we get some real attacking quality along side Suarez."

"murphz1 & WhelanR We don't beat all the teams that we face and outpass because we lack an AM/RW who gives penetration and a finalizer, I hope that in january the owners will give us the responses! YNWA"

"well that was a good point earned 2nd 45 we faught hard for the point ,glad br had the balls to change things around ,we need more goals and the only way that will come about is if fsg put the money there in january we need 2 strikers and a good winger desperately ,and by strikers i mean best quality we can get , "

"Carragher the Legend and Enrique superb, I hope Jose gets a good run in the team now. Brendan don't make the same mistake as Kenny and play £15m Allen when his game is off - do the decent thing and sub him!"

"it was a poor performance for 60 minutes but we came away with a point, probably a good point away and the league form is improving. the next game at home is a must win as we cannot afford to drop back into those relegation places as that would be a disaster"

"Agree with Rushjob9. I also think Some fans are getting to carried away with these possession stats. Yes we dominate this stat in most games, that's only because we keep the ball going backwards along the back 4."

"I thought we played ok good possession, but until the CM receive the ball higher up & turn & go forward with it looking to play in wide men & front 3 we have no chance. Stats are great "Suarez had 2 shots, 1 was the goal," well the other was from the halfway line! contd"

" "Agger had 100% tackles" except the 1 against Terry! "Agger had most shots." Yer from 45yards, both ending closer to Anfield then Cech's net! "Wisdom only misplaced 1 pass" Brill that was the 1 that gave us the corner to score, it would never have found a red shirt as there was no one in box at the time. The beauty of stats!"

"Excellent. All we have to work on now is passing the ball to where the opposing goalkeeper can't get it until it is stopped by the back of the net."

"I'd like to see the completed forward pass stats and the territory heat map. And Gerrard's heat map and the stats for time on the ball between passes. Gerrard didn't get into enough attacking positions. Allen was too ponderous on the ball. Either that or his teammate's movement was poor. Gerrard was playing the Alonso position too much. We need an Alonso and we need Gerrard to be Gerrard."

"As much as I still like Torres being a very good striker (and his contribution to our beloved club), I think he's desperate to score against LFC, as mentioned in the stats. I wonder how will he celebrate..."

"At the start of the season the stat was, "if you are better with the ball, you win 79%". It's now 78% thanks to LFC."
