Peter talks to our regular Paul Smith about all things LFC
What were your thoughts on the Man Utd game?
Going into the game I was confident we’d do ok. Seen the lineup and thought these are for the taking. The first half was terrible. Showed them to much respect we seem nervous and couldn’t get into the game. After the first 15 20 min you knew what Jose’s plan was to target TAA and it worked. Klopp didn’t do anything about it tho.lovern didn’t do Trent any favours at all. Second half showed more of what we can do. The ref never helped at all have us nothing in the game. Hate losing to them.
Did Klopp make the right team selection in your opinion?
I thought Henderson would start over Milner more energetic and more voice better on the ball. Trent also he’s a young local lad and would want to play in these games but it should have been Gomez against Rashford.
Who was your Man of the match at Old Trafford?
It wasn’t pretty and judging on the second half performance of have to say Firmino. Think he worked hard to try and get us back in the game. The only one United couldn’t handle 5 points behind where do you think we will finish. Second hasn’t gone for me we’ve only Chelsea away to worry about. United have a few tricky games as do Spurs. I’d take 3rd if it was offered now but still 8 games to go and a lot to play for.
What would your Watford line up be?
A full straight one. 3 points is a must we’ve 2 games before Chelsea host spurs so 6 points will put us in good shape. Mine would be Kaurius Gomez Matip VVD Robbo Hendo Can Ox Mane Bobby Salah.
Can you give a prediction and score?
Always a physical game against Watford. They’re trying to stay up. It won’t be a walk over. But after losing to United I hope Klopp has the lads like wounded animals ready for the kill. So a good 2-0 will be great Up the reds
