    Hes really not. It's just difficult because Bayern are setting and executing traps expertly.

    Not that any of you lot will care but this is where all the Liverpool net spend shit comes from. Knobheads like him pulling massive numbers out of their arse. The big difference between Klopp and Emery's respective first seasons isn't money, anyway. Klopp came in and pretty much instantly improved performances. There were plenty of disappointing results but very few disappointing performances. He gave the team a tactical identity and style of play, and he improved a lot of the existing squad before he really had any money to spend - including a few that were perceived to be flops under Rodgers. I see very little evidence of Emery having instilled any kind of philosophy or tactical framework. I think you'd be looking better right now if you'd just kept Wenger. How many of the existing players would any of you say he's actually improved? And the squad looks to be in a bigger mess than it was when he arrived. I'm not saying he should get the boot already but I'd be very worried if I were an Arsenal fan.

    He seems so much better from the bench.

    I don't usually like posting Twitter bollocks on here but this is too delicious to ignore:

    I'll be honest, I don't really care that he dived yesterday. I reckon there's way more instances of him being fouled, staying on his feet and then getting fuck all for it, than instances where he's dived. He has pulled a couple of bait ones, though, and not just this season. And I'd prefer it if he didn't dive... So I guess I do care.

    Gomez is back next week, Matip is back for the next game, and Trent should only miss a few games. Milner is back up for both fullback positions, and Fabinho can cover CB and RB. Should be OK. It's not ideal but there's no point buying somebody to fix short-term injury problems. Lets not forget that it takes a while for defensive players to adapt to Klopp's system.

    Surely you mean people above his head "promptly sold them" and then he was given pennies to replace them. Seriously, they've made something daft like £40m profit on transfers since he's been there. The wage bill has decreased as well. I don't see why there's all this outrage at him complaining other than the fact it's Rafa in England.

    What? Aren't they on a negative net spend since he's been there? He 'politicked' at Liverpool as well and he was absolutely right to. I don't really see the difference here. Another parasitic owner with no ambition whatsoever other than to rinse the fans.

    Defenders should be allowed to foul him, obviously. Insufferable Liverpool getting penalties for clear fouls in the area. And celebrating when he scores? Insufferable.

    I forgot to mention this while we were talking about players that we knew in real life but given the result today it's got to be worth a mention. Scott Bennett (Newport) is my mate's brother-in-law. Really nice guy so I'm pleased for them today.

    Paul Canoville is my first cousin, once removed. Chelsea's first black player for those that don't recognise the name. Did anyone catch him on Ian Wright's documentary a few weeks back?

    For the people moaning about the midfield, I was confident he'd go back to the 4-3-3 for this one to prevent them playing a back 3 and strangling us in our half. We looked a lot better once we switched to the 4-2-3-1 for sure but it also coincided with the game becoming very open as both teams started pushing. I expect that's the last we'll see of the 4-3-3 for a good while, and I have to say it feels pretty good! As CJ already said, this challenge feels like part of the process rather than just a crazy run in the perfect storm. Just take a look back to the start of last month. City were top, we were chasing. We lost Gomez, Matip and Trent to injury, all at the start of the toughest month of the season. People were pointing at Salah's lack of goals and calling him a one season wonder. The team played great and answered every question asked of them emphatically. Trent was good yesterday as well. I really don't understand what people expect. Is it realistic to expect that any fullback, nevermind one so young and still learning - is going to keep Sane so quiet that he has no chances and does nothing for a whole game? Lovren came apart at the seams in the end but he's fourth choice and is only playing because two other guys are injured. This team is for real. We don't have to play City every week, or even again at all this season. It's going to be OK; have some faith.

    Insufferable, even.
