2-1. Liverpool fans to overtly add to their continuous effort in calling us boring as compensation for being worse than us.
Worse in what way? In terms of being worse in points, we have picked up only one less than United since the Klopp took over, which isn't bad given that he was managing in a new league taking charge of a team low on confidence and looking at the fixture list he had (City, Spurs and Chelsea away). And if I were a betting man, I'd certainly check out the odds on us picking up more than you between now and the end of the season. It might be worth a flutter.
In terms of entertainment, only a complete fucking numpty would claim that Liverpool aren't now playing on a different level in comparison to what United continue to serve up. Sure, we have had a few relapses (last week's game against Swansea springs to mind, a very Unitedesque grinding victory that was) but for every one of those since Klopp took charge, we have games like last night against Southampton and Manchester City at the Etihad. Van Gaal just doesn't appear to want to do entertaining football, or perhaps like Moyes he simply doesn't know how to.
Not too bad a half, two of West Ham's chances came from poor individual mistakes (De Gea for one and Blind for the other), the only chance they created for themselves was the header from a corner - which they are always dangerous from.
Reid has made a couple of important blocks, as he does, but we've not created much of note so far.
