hi Steve

The Referee certainly wasn't on Liverpool's side. I wouldn't have said it was a certain penalty but we have seen many given for less. Liverpool ( due to team changes) lacked their usual aggression and sparkle. But when you are in multiple competitions you have to try to manage it. Klopp was not happy....he even complained about a dry pitch.!!!! Does he not know that it is the same for both teams??. Pity they didn't play today....it's p****** down here.

Last week United made 7 changes and still won 2-0.

Yesterday this paid off big time. He brought his top players back with great results.

This was United at their best. Aggressive and with pace they deservedly beat Spurs and they had to come back from a goal down.
This was a great match to watch with both teams going hammer and tongues at each other.

The ref was poor here too. He ignored Spurs constant diving, their were more dives than in the Commonwealth games diving competition.

Pogba and Sanchez both were great and for me Matich was the best player. He works under the radar very much like Michael Carrick he just gets on with it.

I will be watch the Pool next weak and know it will be a great game in which I hope Liverpool get a good result.
