    Gotta think all of the top 6 feel fairly good about their chances this week.


    Leicester and Burnley might cause the most problems.

    Leicester have a good team. This isn't a match to sleep on. It doesn't mean too much I guess but they were all over United.

    Hope we can score an early goal or two. Though with how open Leicester was playing against United maybe they will be more suited to our game.

    I think Leicester, Watford, and Burnley all have a shot at taking points this weekend, but none are the favorite in the match up.

    Leicester having Vardy out hurts their chances. They could take a point though.

    Leicester and Palace have always given Liverpool problems, so to get six points from those two games would be a great sign for the season ahead.

    Agreed, and also Bournemouth are usually a tough team to play against and they have started well. I'm hoping a few of you drop points this week, as Arsenal probably has it the easiest with Cardiff.

    Cardiff have been pretty decent defensively. Arsenal could have trouble breaking them down.

    They certainly could and that can happen any given week, but Cardiff is definitely a weaker team than the other 4 mentioned.

    Chelsea doesn't have the best track record against Bournemouth, so it's definitely possible there. Especially if we still haven't cleaned up our vulnerability to counter attacks.

    Bournemouth is tough at home but useless on the road.

    I'm expecting a lot of chalk this week.

    I've noticed that the road team can benefit in early games. Home crowd isnt drunk yet. I think Liverpool take 3 points.

    It is very important for Arsenal to take 3 points for this match. It would help them get over their mental weakness for away games.

    A win for Brighton would be huge this weekend. Always good to get 3 against should be fellow bottom dwellers early in the year.

    Cardiff is the worst team in the league and should get smashed.

    I wouldn't hold my breath. Worst away team in England in 2018.

    Tough game tomorrow that starts a really tough stretch. If they can get 7 points from Leicester/Spurs/Chelsea/City I will be happy. Any more I will be thrilled.

    What a tank. Megged the guy then to add insult to injury he trucked right through him when he could have taken a foul lol

    Mane class of course with his finish and quickness. Beautiful those two.

    Can't we just let a midfielder take throw ins in TAA's place? The boy gives me anxiety attacks when he's trying to find someone to throw to
