To say that Sunderland were defensive would be an understatement. At one point during the game the referee had to confiscate spade’s from Sunderland players because they were trying to dig a moat.
Sunderland had only 22% possession, 2% per player and bare in mind their striker took centre three times. Rather than park the bus they built a bus station, destination nowhere. We finally made the breakthrough when Origi bought a train ticket and got on the wrong bus, by that I mean he tried to cross the ball and it went in. Oh well, I suppose it doesn’t matter how they go in and then the joker in the pack James Milner scored a penalty. He’s such a hoot is Milner, always playing practical jokes, he did one the other day where he turned up two minutes late for training, oh how we laughed.
Winning came at a price though with little Phil Coutinho going off injured, he is now locked in Klopp’s cellar wrapped in cotton wool. Klopp was very controlled with the goals so I had no accidents this week, although I had a little nose wobble when he tried to get the crowd going. Another jolly to the sea side next in the league with a trip to Bournemouth but first EFL Cup game with Leeds. We are off out to buy more cotton wool we are going to need it.
