  1. England in a good position to pull off one of the great Test match run chases. The batsmen have shown a lot more resolve in the second innings.

    I was just about to ask, where the hell is Torreira? Emery sets up defensively but leaves out his best defensive midfielder. ETA. also hope that DDG's rumoured contract isn't true (it hasn't been officially announced yet). Paying him £370k/week is absolute madness anyway and especially so when he looks to be on the decline. Really should have saved Van Aanholt's shot and he's made a lot of costly errors over the past year.

    David Luiz sold himself again. Quality finish from Salah though. It was actually refreshing to see the ref do that. Martial was penalised for staying on his feet even though he was clearly fouled and it should have been another penalty. VAR didn't even bother correcting the obvious mistake.

    Ah, there's the David Luiz we all know. He's better than Mustafi but not by much. Should be game over now. If Arsenal try pushing forward, you'd think Liverpool would rip them apart with that shit defence.

    It has been one way traffic so far. The only decent opportunity Arsenal have had came from Adrian's brainfart. Also think that Emery is playing with fire with his tactics. He's set up the side to be very narrow which has afforded Robertson and especially TAA acres of space out wide and we all know that Liverpool's fullbacks provide a fair bit more creativity than their midfield. The narrow set up isn't really helping Arsenal in midfield either as Liverpool are winning nearly all of the second balls.

    Poor performance. For the second game running, we dominate possession but hardly create much and miss a penalty. This game would have brought those overly optimistic United fans back down to earth. I still maintain that this squad is only good enough for a 6th place finish at best. Our midfield and forward line is worse than last season and lacks depth as well. You look at our bench today and there was not a single player on there who you'd honestly say could have come on and made a difference.

    Rudiger not back yet and no Kante in the Chelsea squad either. That's a big boost for Norwich and they should be able to create a lot more scoring opportunities without Kante there to run the midfield. ETA. Pedro has picked up a knock during the warm up. Barkley comes in for him.
  8. England have had a mare in the field. They should have been chasing around 250 or less but now that target is going to be around 350 (maybe even closer to 400 if the Aussie tail wags a little bit).

    Everton threw away three points there. Had Villa on the ropes but fluffed a few very good chances at 1-0. Iwobi did look lively and caused problems for Villa's defence. Gomes had a poor game and Yerry Mina doesn't look to be a good defender. Wesley was excellent for Villa - had Keane on toast.

    Decent performance. Shame about the missed penalty though. Wolves were the better side in all three of our games last season so at least this was a much better performance than what we managed against them last season.

    That's been Real Madrid's issue with Bale though - he's rarely fully fit and firing, is on monster wages and disappeared last season just when they needed him the most.

    The reliable journos for Barca from RAC1 and CatRadio say that the club are still working on bringing in Neymar. Looks to be a difficult deal to pull off though unless PSG accept a loan with obligation to buy or players + cash deal. There were rumours that PSG wanted Dembele and Semedo to be included in the deal but Barca were not open to that. Apparently Real Madrid are also interested.

    It's a small loan fee because Coutinho's wages are massive - €13m/year after tax according to reports.

    Midweek exertions took its toll on the Chelsea players. They looked gassed in the last 10 or so minutes. ETA. Trippier gets his first assist. Inch perfect cross for a Morata header to give Atleti the lead.

    Leicester dominated that 2nd half. Chelsea were hanging on towards the end there. Chelsea were the better side in the first half and could have had more than the one goal. Draw is a fair result.
