    I don't think they'll play this openly against Liverpool.

    Beautiful goal by Hoj.

    Wretched from Zinchenko, but Hojbjerg still had so much left to do

    They won’t play this open, but I think they’ll keep playing small ball out of the back under pressure.

    He first had to win the ball, so you can't take anything away from Hojbjerg even with the terrible play from Zinchenko.

    That's VERY lucky for Zinchenko I think. Not a stonewall penalty, but from the ref's angle I'm surprised it wasn't given.

    The greatest PL team ever sure looks mortal.

    Pep is on his way to 1 title in 3 years. And everyone was ready to rename the league after him.

    If Mark Hughes is still coaching Southampton, this is probably 3 or 4-0. So much credit has to be given to the way Hasenhuttl has changed this team so quickly.

    And as I say that, 3-1.

    Yeah City getting the big team reffing in this one for sure. A few calls already and the one on JWP was very clear.

    Also, the difference between aguero and Jesus is night and day.

    I don’t understand the Jesus hype at all.

    He was stellar his first half-season in England, and so the hype train really got going. I think the hype is pretty much gone by now though, he still has loads and loads of talent but has stagnated. He took a LOT of **** in Brazil for his performance at the World Cup, which I think also probably hurt his confidence a decent amount - people were furious that he kept starting over Firmino, to the extent that apparently Gabriel Jesus trended in Brazil yesterday in response to Firmino's hat trick.

    Yeah it's crazy sometimes the expectations fans put on players. The stuff they deal with can be really over the top and especially for a young player can have huge impact on their self confidence. Just look at what Lovren went through at Liverpool too.

    Jesus never should have started over Firmino but it's not his fault that he did. He's a very talented young player and I'd take him at Liverpool tbh.

    I remember reading that Brazil never really warmed up to Firmino because he was developed in Europe, where as they resonated more with Jesus because of his upbringing.
