Liverpool are a class above us and will remain so for a long time unfortunately. Even with a change of manager for us they are just way too good right now

Whoever finishes above Liverpool wins the league.

They look back to that side that won the league to me. Spells of attacking dominance to score the first goal and then rarely concede at the other end.

Barring a bad injury to Salah or Van Dijk, I can't see them dropping many points against anyone not named Chelsea or Manchester City

Apart from when Brentford scored 3 against them.

That used to happen to our beat sides. I remember bonkers 3-3 draws with the likes of Boro. I'll bet you they don't concede 3 in a league match again this season.
They'll concede 4 next week.

Pathetic. Ranieri has been on the job for like one day. People are called kneejerk on here for having opinions about Ole after 3 years in charge.
If they were winning I'd be seeing "look what Ranieri can do with one weeks training that Ole can't" like I've seen on here about other managers. Whatever the agenda I suppose.

See how easy it is to post the same nonsense that I see from these posters that have replied to this, all the time.

Their 3rd place with all the injuries last year will eventually get the respect it deserves, like Mourinhos 81 points

I agree. I had them 3rd behind City and Chelsea before the season but they look better than Chelsea.

Just noticed Watford are 15th. Even by their standards, sacking the manager seems pretty stupid. They surely can’t expect to be doing better than that?

Do you blame them?
I met Klopp in Arndale a couple of years ago. He growled at me just like that when I told him I supported Chelsea. Then he smiled and thanked me for beating City the previous weekend.

So you’re making a stupid point in anticipation of the possibility that others might’ve made a stupid point if a different set of events happened?

Weird way to live life mate.

Half time stats showing Watford with 49% pass completion. So, on average, they haven't been able to string one pass together.

Great point. We just need to buy their backline and frontline and then we can play exactly like them.
Yeah no. It's because they have a clear implemented press system which you and everyone knows about because Klopp talks about it constantly. That is what makes every team they play against look shit. They never have time on the ball.

It's the Watford way. They'll continuously sack them until they get back in the championship and if they get promoted it's rinse and repeat.

A decimated Liverpool side, even the most toppest of red, with rose tinted glasses can't deny that wasn't a fair fight. Let's see how we compare against a full strength Liverpool team.

Oh right. We should just buy Klopp then.

Watford are the worst of the worst. At least TRY. Instead they are gifting Liverpool goals

Onside but that's such a stupid rule. The only reason the Watford defender has to intercept it is because Salah is there and a part of play.

Eurgh I feel dirty agreeing with Jenas.
