    No worries. The players probably had one eye on the United game at the weekend. At least the second leg at Anfield will be a decent watch now :D

    We were dogshit and got what we deserved. Actually, we were lucky to go to Anfield with only 1 goal in it.

    We should still progress, but we're making hard work of things at the moment. This is when we need the defence to step up, the attack was always going to go through a lean period, especially with Mane off on the ACN and Coutinho out for two months.

    I never want to see Lucas and Can in the same midfield again.

    Where did you predict it, johnny?

    you could what? See their quality? Right, they had quality yesterday.

    OK, "you" won in the league 5 months ago but the League Cup Semi-final is ....without Everton...as usual

    Hearing Van Dijk is a doubt for the 2nd leg. Huge boost for us!

    God, already nervous for this. I expected it to be game over but felt a tad disappointed that it was only 1-0 to us.

    The longer this tie stays in our favour, the more my hairline will receed.

    Really hope VVD plays but it's not looking great. We'd struggle to keep a cleansheet with him so it has the potential to get messy without him. I can see a spirited defeat for us where our fans are left asking what if VVD played and what if we took more of the chances we created at St. Mary's?

    Please just win this cup Saints...... :animatedf:

    Zero confidence in the defence's ability to keep a clean sheet and little confidence in the attack of scoring more than Southampton will as a result of that. It's a shame, two months ago I'd have been confident of scoring at least 3 in this game.

    Southampton to do enough and progress with a draw.

    1-1

    I think Liverpool will progress without too much trouble but hopefully the result in the last leg keeps things interesting for a while.

    My 1FF Prediction League Cup vote is 2-0 Liverpool. I am still #1 there, so they must advance hopefully with exactly this result :D

    I largely agree with this, but I'd go with 2-1, going out after extra time. League cup semis still got that weird away goal rule, right? Counts after 120 but not after 90.

    Yep. No VVD. Liverpool should win comfortably.

    All my joy could be over in 90 minutes or more. I almost don't want the game to happen, but COYR's! I want the same feeling as when we went to Brighton and took all three points from them in 2011 to come back.

    Ordinarily I'd be very confident in this type of game, as you know. But the Swansea performance and result has knocked it out of me. Having a leaky defence is manageable when you're scoring for fun, but that stopped before Christmas.

    Hoping for the best but expecting a draw.

    Shame for van Dijk, he's been improving rapidly for a while now. Hopefully he comes back like nothing happened. Don't mind him missing this one game though. :hypo:

    If only the rest of Karius' game was as good as his shot stopping.

    There is only so many times they're going to fail on the break. Eventually they'll get one.

    Should be at least one up. Tadic and Davis's chances were sitters.

    All a bit of huff and puff from Liverpool without doing much, Soton with the best chances and Karius keeping us in the game again. Looks like Puel will keep his unbeaten record against Liverpool and Klopp will lose his 100% progression in semi-finals if it carries on like this.

    Hopefully there is more cutting edge second half.

    Davis's chance was far from a sitter.

    Romeu and Stephens (bar THAT backpass) have been very good in the defence. However, every match I see of Rodriguez I just end up missing that pace he once had. :( Think the match is calling for Long. Redmond's getting some joy when running at their defence.

    Really need to hit the net before the time wasting starts. It will then become more difficult and the desperation will creep in.
