I bet rafa benitez will be chucklingto himself tonight: if we still employed zonal marking on corners we would not have conceded that goal

"Swansea under Laudrup have improved immensely. Swansea under BR was all out possession which was normally in there own half and they ended up being the lowest scoring team in the prem, remind you of anyone? again a transfer window has gone by we needed a creative midfielder and another forward, what do we buy defenders and players for the future."

We need more urgency in the final third. No, hang on. More composure. Or is that composure and urgency. Er, accuracy. Consistent accuracy. Class? We got it, but it's not 100% yet."

"The amount of blatant fouling Man Utd got away with was an utter joke,Gigs should of been sent off twice kicked the ball away on a booking already usual crap at old trafford. Enrique just watched Hernandez run off him for the goal not good enough if your marking someone you have to follow them basic defending. We should of scored tonight but sometimes that happens need a to win the next game "

"I am happy with ten points from five games. But after each game I thought ok we ground out a result, I am sure we will be hitting on all cylinders very soon. Then that Southampton game just set us back two steps. We have not played well this season and controlled a game apart from the Stoke game and even then we cowered away into our shells for the last 15 minutes."

Fwds not match fit & lacking the link between MF & ATT, but otherwise satisfied with the performance, not with the result. Obviously you'll get the weeners/whiners just chomping at the bit to bring the team down, luckily the real fans just ignore them."

Kick the out of Anfield please..! I just knew as soon as he came on again we would loose. We went down to 10 players just like we did against Southampton and Swansea."

"Good performance but poor finishing in the box and very poor defending for the goal cost us. Gerrard and Henderson were poor in the second half and never got close to imposing themselves on the game. Sturbridge was very poor and needs to get his focus back. Had several very good chances but we lacked composure. Sterling is more effective from right back then in a forward position. "

"What has Sakho got to do with the goal against us? Gerrard jumped to head the corner away without lifting himself from the ground. His overall play of late has been extremely subdued. Just like he is uninterested or inhibited. Lucas is also not very effective despite the statistics. Whoever blames Moses should realize that he was made to play as a number 10 in the role of Coutinho."

"What is the X factor to turn the really good performances into wins? We can already play crap and win. Personally, like a lot of other things, it's all in the margins. Man U are great at getting marginal decisions for penalties and free kicks etc. If it's consistent, it puts refs under pressure. Ultimately, they give in. They must get an extra 10-20 goals a season doing this."

"If we want to sit and be analytical about the goal, it was sheer perfect timing by Hernandez. Normally a player on the post would have time to tell another defender to get him. Enrique had him, couldn't leave that gap at the back and it was just too high for Stevie. In fact he wasn't great at judging the height and stepping back first"

"Well. One silly mistake and we lose the game. At least we looked more potent going forward, despite the lack of goals.
