Suppose Gundogan is for a little more solidity. But an on top form Sterling can cause havoc with his pace so we'll miss that tonight. 

Also a way to 'drop' Raheem and save him for the rags and the home leg.

Gundongan and Laporte are the weak point every time the ball goes near them.
although near Gundongan is a loose term as I have no idea where he is playing other than getting in the way of Silva or not tracking their left back?

that early goal was always gonna put its under undue pressure. 

for all that's been said this season, we've not been good enough under real pressing like this and combined with pace.

Walker should have booted the ball into touch immediately rather than try to have a touch for the first goal.

Sane has been poor. But I had to stop watching. just couldn't;t take it.

I get not playing Stirling, but would have gone for Bernado, now I think Pep needs to roll the dice & get Sterling on beacuse we need some 2nd half goals to give us a chance in the 2nd leg

Honestly, Gundogan shouldn't have started. If he wasn't going to start with Sterling, he had to start with Bernardo.

Said it all season...Gundogan is shit. His injuries have taken their toll...no legs whatsoever. He just watches the game pass us by.

Very poor choice by Pep to let him stay on the field after they scored their 2nd. He's needs to get them up for it now...make some changes. Danilo for Laporte and Sterling for Gundogan.

Said it yesterday...if Salah or Mane isolate Laporte, we'll be fucked. Gundogan hasn't helped whatsoever with this. Maybe Danilo being right footed will stop Salah cutting in so much onto his favoured foot.

Anyway, he'll probably bring Sane off and play Danilo in MF the way this selection has gone....utter shite.

Liverpool are a 60 minute team against decent opposition. They just run out of steam. But they're already 3-0 up and we've created nowt.

Both linesmen were crap. Missed the salalh off side for their 1st goal then spotted city offsides which clearly wern't and disallowed a good goal.

and still standing by my Laporte comment..
Sane was isolated as Laporte never got within 30 yards of him.. so Silva was in close proximity inside, not enough space.

Pep royally fucked that up. No way should Gundogan have started if we have Kev and Dave on the pitch. 

Where was the width on the right? Early doors, Walker steamed past his man so easily but we kept putting the ball out left to Sane who was very poor. And Walker didn't want to take his man on again after beating him for pace so easily. 

I think the commentators said it at the end; Sane should have had a go out on the right because he was shit on the left.

Liverpool are a high intensity team but usually only for the first half or 60 minutes. They give everything but struggle for energy against a half decent team towards the end. 

We made that early mistake for their goal and you could see us visibly wobble. We lost some belief and their pressure hit us harder than it should.

Look never say never, glad it's only 3, was fearing 6 after the 3rd.  We have already beat them 5-0 At home.  Nothing to lose Tuesday now after stuffing rags to title Saturday.

You could try and argue and say their first was offside....it was, but no excuse for Walker being a total fuck-wit.

2nd goal was just a great strike....not much you can do with that....but at 2-0, WE could all see the formation wasn't working. Gundogan should never have been on the pitch....frankly, I hope I never see him in a City shirt again. Said it all season...he's shit. Too slow, no legs, does fuck all unless he's 25 yards from goal with no-one around him. Injuries have ruined his career.

Laporte....wow. I know he's not a LB and should NEVER have been put their on a night like tonight, but he's fucking wank. Slow as anything....got a long way to go before he gets anywhere near the team IMO.

Silva and KDB had their worst games, I think, EVER.

Sane...worked like mad....but his final pass/cross/decision was pretty much wrong 99% of the time.

Walker....enough said. Awful tonight.

We can't have that many players performing at that level for the first 45 mins, knowing they'd throw everything at us. 2nd half, they defended like mad....we created fuck all. Jesus....got so much to learn. Nowhere near the level of an Aguero yet. Felt a little sorry for him though, as he was so isolated for 45 mins, then Silva and KDB didn't offer any support.

But, the my man Pep, gets the biggest FUCK UP award. Got EVERYTHING wrong tonight and he needs to take full responsibility for this and get it right for Saturday. Too much respect, changing a winning formation...bottled it tonight if I'm honest. 

All round...a night to forget.

We better win the League on Saturday otherwise City fans are not gonna be happy. A loss tonight was always a possibility...but not that performance.

Gundogan is just one man.
I'm equally baffled as to why he was playing but he's not the only reason we got battered again in the 1st half at Anfield
We/Pep didn't learn any lessons from the league game which was very naive. Just have to hope they are equally as bad when they come t Thetihad

His inclusion was the main reason. Without him, we'd have had Sterling or Bernardo out wide and not him lumbering around the midfield losing players. The rest weren't great, but he's bloody garbage.

I blame Pep for picking him. Look, I'm a fuckwit when it comes to football tactics etc. but if you and me are saying it, why can't Pep see he hasn't got the legs and we're losing the width?

but we created nothing in the 2nd half even though we had 70% of the ball and Liverpool were the closest to scoring from a long punt up the pitch.

Sane may have run and worked hard, but his game was littered with so many errors not was untrue. It was his cheap give away that started their attack for the first goal.

But, under pressure, we were lumping the ball up again. Liverpool changed their games for us but we were not willing to change our game for them. 

And, as Rich says, no plan B is just embarrassing. If we'd such a goal back after 70-75 minutes, I could see us pressuring them into us getting a 2nd. 

Liverpool worked ever so hard.
