The diamond midfield is quite risky with Liverpool’s main threat often being their full backs

I mean we didn’t concede after 10 minutes. I think I’m happy.

This passing out of defence is killing me. Why don't we vary it. Try t catch them out ith a long ball upfield.

Some of you might disagree but I thought that was a cowardly performance. Talk about park the bus. It was like we felt inferior and played like a bottom of the table club hoping to nick a goal on the break.

If I was Emery I would be ashamed for my team to play in such a gutless manner.

Zero composure when we do get possession under pressure.

The two Liverpool fullbacks have the freedom of the park.

The only one who looked decent was Pépé and he missed a real chance.

Ceballos is struggling. So is Pépé & Aubameyang & most of the team. Lacking confidence. Come on Emery, do your stuff.

Agree with you, very cowardly display

Certainly can see your point. I was waiting for us to weather the opening salvo and then grow into the game. They weathered alright after 15 minutes or so but never got any kind of foothold. I feel like we need more in midfield on those second balls. If we could sub on good Torreira for Xhaka I’d say we need that. Ceballos has been anonymous.

Pépé should have scored- bad miss. Then fair enough Liverpool score, they deserve the lead. But we’re not finished yet, we can definitely score but we can’t go two down, so it’s a balancing act now.

I completely agree. Awful tactics from Emery and no attempt whatsoever to try and gain any kind of control of the game. Wrong starting 11 and wrong tactics. Unless he changes it, this could be a hammering.

And it is not serving any purpose. We are too slow when moving it forward.

Feel like he’s gambled a little on Ceballos putting in a possession keeping performance and playing out from the back and it hasn’t worked. I agree he needs to change something

Hmm. If Mustafi had done that we’d have slagged him off rotten.

Like Salah is through on goal 6 yards out I don’t think it made any difference

We’re 2-0 down. Why are we still parking the bus?

I think it’s fair to say we’re still nowhere near Liverpool’s level. This could get ugly.

Was Abamayang out on the tear last night? Looks like a guy that's half asleep today. How many millions did Emery spend this summer? This shower look pretty hopeless, to be frank. Worse, they look like a team still managed by Wenger.

We were always going to look bad against a settled team that got 99 points and won the champions league. Let’s not *%^@ our pants

We are making them look good. Southampton gave then a game last week. We are giving them all the time in the world to play passes.

Luiz is a shite defender. Always was always will be and Salah showed it in technicolor.

They were coming off extra time midweek. I’d rather play that pool

At least Ceballos transfer fee has gone back down again.
