    Is that the same Brendan Rodgers who looked upset when Perez was red carded for treading on Formals’ leg?

    Diallo is still a big concern for me. He's small, not very quick, yesterday he was slow to release the ball and misplaced too many passes. I was looking for improvement but i saw many of the same problems he had last season.

    Agree a bit, but he’s young and he’s come on v a Man U side looking for a late winner

    He was busy in the midfield and did ok excepting those stray passes

    Ralph rates him so let’s see how he does v Newcastle or similar

    Agree. Whether Ralph rates him or not is hard to say as there's nobody else to come on and take that role at the moment so Hobson's Choice. He does need game time but when a player comes on and makes basic mistakes the rest of the team aren't making then they stand out for the wrong reasons. In hidsight he may have settled into the game as his passing stats were in the high 80's, not really any worse than the rest.
