We’ve been rubbish defensively since winning the league. 

 

Yes, I was one of the people concerned by the middling form carrying into this season. Van Dijk has now made a few mistakes leading to goals and it's not great.

I do think part of it could be a lack of real competition for places. Maybe we can’t get huge names for whatever reason but when the bench, for many positions, is talented youngsters or known second stringers it’s not exactly keeping people on their toes when they’ve already got medals in their pockets. 
 

Leeds have been second best for a lot of this game but have looked so much hungrier for every chance they’ve had and deserve what they’ve got.

I've always been of the opinion that any team scoring 3 goals away from home should be taking points, so Leeds can feel a little hard done by.

 

Our possession stats were well down on a more normal game too, weren't they? That to me signals something isn't clicking yet too (ignoring the defensive errors.) 

 

Still, 3 points is 3 points so yay.

The first side with a competent defence we face is going to beat us. It's just like last season with a weak defence, Firmino's final ball not sure working and shot after shot being blocked. But Leeds are a good side and will be difficult for everyone so I'm happy to get away with three points and beating United in the penalties table already.

The xG for the game was 3.15 vs 0.27.

 

Sure our defence has been making mistakes it wasnt making for most of last season but every team has also been scoring pretty much every shot vs us too since lockdown - that cant keep happening.

 

What an amazing start to the season - we really seem to just be able to win whatever happens.

Give credit to Leeds though, they were great. If they can keep that up, and they can cut out some of the errors, they could push for Europe this season.

Bear in mind Leeds defensive partnership was a new signing and an under 23 so has never played together. They looked much better second half.

 

Fair result I think. Nice that we weren't embarrassed, shame we couldn't hold on for a draw though. I was surprised by the lapses in the Liverpool defence.

The defence has been sleeping for since July.

 

Was watching bits of the Everton game yesterday (they actually looked pretty good, completely different to last season) and felt a small pang of jealousy that even they are going out and spending a fair chunk of cash. They had to, of course (like most teams), but even so...

Leeds was the sort of game I could watch all season. Let's have a fun one before the league is scrapped in December. 

 

We looked threatening going forward and had Trent and Henderson back who Jane not had any pre season games.

 

3 points, lots of goals, yes please.
