Problem is where to put them. World cup in the winter so not exactly a lot of free room in the calendar.

Also is this going to get better in the near future

Should get better in the near-future, you'd expect Omicron cases to peak soon and things should start settling down around mid-January. Until then it's a make-do-and-mend league with postponements all over the place.

Can't understand why Chelsea, with only two outfield substitutes available, couldn't get their game postponed but others have managed it.

Newcastle 0-4 Manchester City - the champions looking a class apart at present.
Wolves 0-0 Chelsea - Chelsea looking a bit toothless but covid hindering them.

Reading Tuchel saying that playing Kante was close to irresponsible, but he felt he had no choice because of availability.

Looking at their bench he had 4 outfield players on the bench including 3 midfielders.

Could he not have played one of them from the start instead, or is he conveniently forgetting that it was still a choice that came down to tactics.

I see the Liverpool assistant is also complaining about having a few games close together. I have some sympathy in the current plight, but also feel that all these teams complaining have plenty of players to choose from and rotates if you include the youngsters on their books, but it doesn't suit them to play them as it means they have a greater chance of losing.

Or am I missing something?

Completely agree. Not sure if they're still doing it, but Chelsea sent a full PL squad worth of players out on loan every season for years, and all the big clubs recruit highly rated youth players from all over Europe (if not the world) so there's no reason they shouldn't be able to fill their bench. It's also always a little funny to hear PL managers complain about the amount of games they have to play when you compare it to the EFL schedules.

Bonkers win for City over Leicester. 4-0 became 4-3, ended up 6-3. Not sure what the second set score was.

And Chelsea, badly affected in recent weeks by Covid and injury, came away with an absolutely huge three points v Villa to keep them in the title race. Lukaku turning the game with his monstrous presence.

Leicester 1-0 Liverpool. A quite brilliant game at the King Power and rather ridiculous it was only 1-0. Salah missed a first half penalty and his rebound also hit the crossbar. Lookman made Liverpool pay with a beautiful goal.

City 6pts clear...

Brentford 0-1 Manchester City - Foden with the only goal.
Chelsea 1-1 Brighton - injury time equaliser by Welbeck cancelled out Lukaku’s first half goal. Tuchel might not last the season at this rate…

City 8pts clear

In fairness to Tuchel, Chelsea have struggled massively with injury problems. Again last night they lost another player, James, to a probable torn hamstring and a few months on the sidelines. It's been a makeshift Chelsea side for the past few weeks and will continue to be. Though they're tough to beat, they're just not getting enough wins and that's costing them. Plus they've got a congested fixture calendar coming up with all these absentees.

At the moment Chelsea are probably more concerned about staying in the top four than winning the league. Their next three fixtures are Liverpool, City and Tottenham, and they may only be a couple of losses away from falling out of the top four.

Will take quite a collapse from City for them to cede their grip on the league.

Think Chelsea have had 8 or 9 games in December - and it’s caught up with them. A lot of the players out there (particularly Jorginho/Mount/CHO) we’re running on empty. Kante is proper injury prone now - it’s been 2.5 seasons of it.

It’s probably a blessing they had no games off for covid, as they still have to fit in the CWC…

Newcastle signing Chris Wood isn't quite what I expected.

You can see what he is trying to do.

It looks like the traditional Newcastle style with wingers, overlapping fullbacks and a good target man.

Thinking of Newcastle, anyone see the two disallowed Andy Carroll goals from last night. Two great "goals", the second a worldie!!

Wood on a 2 and a half year contract is also a decent backstop if Newcastle do go down. Money is excessive but Newcastle aren't getting any discounts this window

City too good. Azpilicueta and Alonso at WB is painful to watch - Reece and Chilwell are huge, huge losses.

Was always a doomed appointment. Benitez seems to have a habit of going to clubs where he's not liked from the off (Chelsea, Real, Everton).

Rooney back in the Prem will be interesting, but Martinez is the bookies favourite. Would he want to leave Belgium with the World Cup just ten months away? Lampard, Potter and Ferguson also in the running. Doubt Potter wants to take a sideways step to Everton.

I'm just a little bit apathetic about it.

I would go for Big Dunc. the only time I remember us playing with passion recently was the period where he was in charge. If the other options were Rooney or Martinez, then why not give Dunc a try.

The other one I would like is Potter, but I can't see him wanting to leave Brighton to join us. Why would he, when he could get a better job at a more stable club in a year or so's time.

Tottenham with the finest, quickest comeback of the season to take an iron grip on 4th spot. Spurned chance after chance in normal time, then manage to take two in 90 seconds right at the end. Football, bloody hell.

Brentford 1-3 Manchester United - three academy graduates secure a vital win for Rangnick. Elanga, Greenwood and Rashford all getting in the goal column. 
Brentford will be bitterly disappointed they played Manchester off the pitch in the first half. Some woeful finishing and de Gea with a vintage performance saving them. 

You’ve still got to question the squad at Old Trafford. Why in earth did they spend £73m on Sancho and £37m on Amad. They’ve got good academy players in Rashford, Greenwood and Elanga. They just need the right coach to hone the abilities. 

Manchester should’ve spent the £110m spent on Sancho and Amad on Rice and Kounde.
