NEIL ATKINSON welcomes Mike Nevin, Peter Hooton and James McKenna to the Anfield Wrap after Liverpool are defeated by Manchester United by the only goal.

They get stuck into Liverpool's issues around goalscoring, their energy levels after a gruelling game against Arsenal and how Jurgen Klopp set his side up.

In Louis Van Gaal’s fourth consecutive victory over Liverpool in the League, Liverpool yet again conceded from the first shot against on target in a game in which they were the better side.

And with problems at the other end of the pitch despite making most of the running, Neil asks if anyone at any point thought Liverpool would get two goals ahead in the game?

What is it that Liverpool are doing wrong in attack after spending over £70m in an effort to liven up the front-line?

How can a team look so ruthless one week and yet toothless the next? Was it a case of having a physical and mental hangover from the Arsenal drawin which they yet again didn’t emerge with what they deserved?

Also they talk about the forthcoming Exeter game and Neil gets Steve Armstrong from United We Stand on the phone to discuss his view of United's well thought through smash and grab.
