    Pompey had a late winner in Round 2 off a deflection.

    Leaders in League 1 vs Leaders in the Championship. Should be a good test for Portsmouth. :)

    Arsenal got a fortunate draw to say the least. Another good match to get some young talent game time

    Liverpool got by far the worst draw out of the Top 6 teams. Again. 2nd worst of all the PL teams (besides Wolves) They have been getting rough draws Domestically for a while now.

    Getting @ Chelsea in the Carabao Cup was the reason that last run of fixtures was so rough. Liverpool really need some silverware and still think FA Cup is their best chance, but they really could have used an easier opponent.

    This is what there next month looks like:

    December:
    • 05 Burnley (A)
    • 08 AFC Bournemouth (A)
    • 11 Napoli (H)
    • 16 Manchester United (H)
    • 21 Wolverhampton Wanderers (A)
    • 26 Newcastle United (H)
    • 29 Arsenal (H)
    JANUARY
    • 03 Manchester City (A)
    • W05 Wolverhampton (A)
    • 12 Brighton & Hove Albion (A)
    Really tough run of games including some very hard aways. And they just ran a gauntlet too. Doubt any other team has anything close to that.

    Losing to Wolves would be great for Liverpool.

    Yep, they need to lose so they can go off on breaks to Spain between league matches. Those helped keep the squad very energized last season.

    Chong and Garner on the bench for United. Darmian at CB. Would think Chong will make his debut at some point. Hopefully both.

    Solskjaer said he should be ok. Poor performance even with 9 changes. VAR assisted penalty for a foul on Mata, his touch went through to Fred who scored but was flagged for offside. Midfield of Fred, Pereira and McTominay was ineffective. Reading had more possession and played well.

    Can't be watching Chelsea right now, but Callum Hudson-Odoi has spoonfed Morata two goals. Don't sell the kid!

    Two very nice passes to set him up.

    Hudson-Odoi needs to be starting some league games.

    Oh my god that Morata miss. How is that even possible? I actually feel for the guy.

    I genuinely think that Morata's biggest problem is that he's intensely mentally fragile. If any guy needs a sports psychologist, it's him.

    He's offside anyway. Morata had the reputation of being clutch too...

    His brain broke after poor form, and he went from being clutch to being an anxious mess

    I'll miss Cesc. What a fantastic player he was for the Blues. IMO he should've been named captain after JT left. Maybe he'd still be wearing a Chelsea shirt.

    Cesc is lovely but Cahill and then Azpilicueta was a very natural line of succession.
