First topic message reminder :

We have our 20 as Fulham take the playoff spot and we welcome back West Brom, Fulham and, most importantly to the nation (apparently) Leeds.

If Manchester United could keep Bailly fit he would pretty much solve their CB issues. He’s strong, quick and brave. He’s like a commanding presence.
And they should get Grealish instead off Sancho.

The last thing United need is another player who excels in the centre, they need more options on the flanks. Grealish won't start in the same team as Fernandes so would be a huge waste of money.

Becoming a joke now. Clubs and players should be fined for not following the protocols, or at least heavily punished. Tottenham & WHU players caught mixing at Xmas party and they now have Covid. Several Fulham players have Covid now, and their match with Burnley postponed. Can only see this worsening over the next week.

Spurs 3-0 Leeds FT

Another masterclass from Bielsa. Those tactics just played right into Spurs and Jose’s hands. Spurs just picked them off, and go four points behind Liverpool.

Sounds like the vultures are beginning to circle for Frank. They were completely outclassed in the first 45, albeit City played as well as they have for a long, long time. Still suspect he is here till at least the CL as they have a more straight forward run coming up.

Whatever happens, he’s leaving behind a far improved squad to the one he inherited - which can’t be knocked and he has rebuilt and integrated youth as promised.

Now what is a greater offence, Cavani's tweet or players not following the protocols? I would say not following the protocols. So being that Cavani got a 3 match ban and a £100,000 fine, the players who didn't follow the protocols should get worse.

Southampton 1-0 Liverpool FT

Liverpool look like a side that is paying for the previous two years standard. Look physically spent. Front three needs freshening up, and TAA has been woeful this season.

4 points cover the top 7

I think Manchester City are now the big favourites for the title. This new over my dead body defence is their trump card.
With Manchester United you never know if the likes of Bailly and Lindelof can stay fit.

Yep. Probably only a matter of time before Villa team were it by covid.
If the game does go ahead tomorrow, it will be down to the U23’s.

The 0 has gone for Sheff Utd. Bruce should be gone tonight.

Never seen such a negative mindset from a manager. Five at the back, two holding midfielders, and one up front, against, Sheff Utd.

Even before the Fraser sending off, there was only one team who looked like they had not won a PL game this season, and it wasn’t, Sheffield United.

Embarrassing.

Tottenham drop more points with a very disappointing home draw against Fulham, though Son should have sealed the win when he had a great chance to put his side 2-0 up.

Just one win in the last six for Tottenham, they've now slipped behind Leicester and Everton and are out of the top four.

I'm not surprised it finished 0-0 either. Didn't get to watch the game but I'd have to guess that Liverpool, being the defending champions, and at home would be more disappointed with the result than United would be.

Liverpool got into some good positions in the final third and, as expected, dominated possession, but chance creation eluded them again. Pogba should have won it at the end for United. 

Every thing is squeezed very tightly at the top, with Leicester and Tottenham picking up expected wins.

Liverpool were all over them in the first half, United just seemed to be hoping they'd tire themselves out. Although there's absolutely a chance that United could just pace themselves to the title given the circumstances this season.

Nothing going Frank's way. First, Ndidi - of all players - scores a half-volley. Then Chelsea win a penalty, only for it to be overturned to a FK on VAR (rightly). The FK gets blasted miles over the bar, and from the Leicester goal-kick a nothing ball lumped forward is not dealt with and Leicester make it 2-0.

Chelsea have been the big disappointment of the season so far. Their signings haven't gelled (particularly Havertz and Werner) and it's fair to say they look awful at the moment.

I’d imagine Roman pulls the trigger soon. Top 4 drifting away. No identity or improvement being shown. Might be another foreign interim needed until the summer.

I’d still be slightly surprised if Roman pulls the trigger yet - they aren’t quite as trigger happy as they used to be, but tonight felt like a new low and like it could be the end. But it felt like that at points during Conte’s second season and definitely during Sarri’s year, so who knows. Depends how much they like Tuchel.

The ability to find a formation that gets the best out of Werner and Havertz definitely the biggest failing even if they haven’t helped him out either. Werner’s season summed up by scoring but being a fraction offside. Would like to see more of the more 442-ish shape we got tonight though. With Havertz and Werner up top.

Entertaining game between City and Villa, but I'm utterly astonished that City's crucial first goal wasn't ruled out by VAR. It was a clear offside.


Just had it clarified as to why it wasn't offside. The law is an ass in this case.

I wasn’t surprised duty as it was against us.
They did say afterwards that when a player touches the ball it’s another phase of play, so he isn’t offside.

Thought we played well again. Could have scored 2 ourselves. Also considering first team not played since New Year’s Day.

Newcastle and Burnley up next. Nothing less than 6 points.

I don't agree with the interpretation given, Rodri is active at all times therefore from the initial header he is offside and should have been flagged as such, that is not then superseded by Mings touch.

Fulham 1 Manchester United 2. United once again came from behind to win on the road. Fulham took the lead with some shocking United defending. Cavani equalised after ex PSG teammate Areola made a mistake gathering a straightforward cross. Pogba sealed the points with a stunning strike.
Whether they are good enough to be champions remains to be seen but you can see progress.

Also if that’s not offside, then as Smith says, are we going to see forwards 5/10 yards offside, wait for the defender to touch the ball and then go and tackle them an score.

Seems a bit odd.

It was offside, we all know that but Jon Moss has always been useless. After these incidents you always get ex refs coming out and making an excuse for why it was the correct decision, having a ref view is the most pointless thing the broadcasters have brought in.

According to the law it’s not offside. As soon as Mings touched it, then it became another phase. So the rules say apparently.

It will be interesting to see next time that happens if the ref/VAR give offside.

It becoming another phase doesn't then stop Rodri from previously being offside, he makes himself active in the previous phase therefore it's offside. If Mings had touched the ball and it had gone backwards directly to Rodri it's offside.

Liverpool in dire trouble. Haven't scored in the last four games, Origi missing a simple chance pretty much sums it up for them. Klopp looks fairly rattled and unable to adjust things. I'm starting to wonder if we're at the beginning of the end for him at Liverpool.

For Burnley, Pope had a great game. Should be England's number one over the erratic Pickford.

Obviously a great win for Burnley.

I was surprised to see the Burnley keeper, who caught the last Liverpool corner in extra time, then hoof the ball up the field. Doesn't he know to waste some time and play the ball from the back rather than letting Liverpool get the ball back and launch another attack? I guess he was just getting too excited who knows.

This high counter pressing style isn’t sustainable over more than 3 seasons. Klopp suffered the same regression at Dortmund.

De Bruyne out for up to six weeks just as City were hitting top form. Will miss key games against Liverpool and Tottenham, and possibly the one in early March against Manchester United.

Vardy also out for a few weeks.
