    If Liverpool win the title they can thank Danny Ings

    Adrián showing why he is not starter material with dumb decisions like that.

    Newcastle is awful as expected. Benítez and his coaching papered over the cracks and with him gone we see how terrible they truly all.

    Nah, they just weren't prepared for the PukkiParty.

    Mane touched the ball but that's still a clear foul and easily a yellow based on what was called in the first half.

    Or rather Pukki for saving his goals vs Newcastle. He felt pity on Pool.

    He looked left and passed straight after Mario pointed to pass there. Should’ve just let him be and assess his options. It’s still his fault but you have to feel for him

    Yeah, agree. We need more creative midfielders and prolific strikers to challange and even then it would be extremely hard but we have a great defence and top class manager. We are superior in hockey too I would say, at least at the moment. Eriksen, Pukki and maybe Joshua King would help. Not sure if anyone from Norway would drastically improve us to be honest.

    We do create high end chances, but mostly due to to individual brilliance like you said. He is great at motivating players to play an intense game, makes substitutions when things go wrong and organises the press well, but besides from that he is far from top class. I would take someone like Erik Ten Haag over him without hesitating.

    Liverpool very lucky to get 3 points there. Were badly outplayed in the first half and didn't really generate any great chances. Both goals were moments of brilliance from attackers, not well built attacks.

    Different West Ham when Antonio came on. Classic them conceding two minutes after scoring though, really rounding into form.

    These slow starts are absolutely terrible.

    Moise Kean had a nice short spell today.
    He's going to be a fun one to watch.

    Well, they also missed some well built attacks. They dominated a majority of the second half and gave away a crazy fluke goal that, in your words, was not a well built attack. They’re fortunate to get 3 points, but they also earned it in the second half. Give me a break.

    That was extremely visible against Spain where we couldn't even handle the ball at all. I would take Kristoffer Ajer from Norway. Granen is finished and Pontus Jansson isn't good enough. Can't agree that we're superior in hockey since Finland are the reigning champions at U20 and senior. They are producing way higher talent at the moment too.

    3 points is all it will read in March. The squad is tired and honestly, I’m worried about depth if they can’t rotate any yet, but I’ll take it.

    Robin van Persie questions Unai Emery's approach and tactics at Arsenal | Metro News

    RvP brings up a good point, what is Emery's philosophy?

    That was bad from Adrian but Alisson got one of those at Leicester last year. Just can’t do that again.

    I would have preferred Lucas over Lamela or Sissoko tonight. I think he could expose their defense.
