    I got a good feeling about Saturdays game v Burnley. One downside is the creative void that will be there because of the Trossard injury. Hopefully someone can step up.

    Pogba, Martial and Shaw out, ABW and Lingard uncertain. Physioroom champs!

    If it's the case anything less than a draw from Leicester would be considered a disappointment.

    That paper thin squad is going to cost United. They successfully managed to lower their wage bill by letting go players that earned way too much but that also destroyed their depth.

    Looks like Rudiger will be back for Chelsea, which is massive, but Kante is still out. Wolves are in shambles right now, so Chelsea better capitalize on that.

    I really don't think Arsenal is dropping anything to Watford this weekend. They cannot defend to save their lives.

    Agree. Three wins and one loss against Watford since they were promoted and that loss was a crazy one where they were awarded a penalty that was beyond weak and a late offsidegoal by Cleverley. We missed a bunch of chances aswell. Even without Laca it shouldn’t cause too much trouble here.

    The best CB in the world doesn't hold the line.

    I remember when Jetro Willems was #9 on my prospect list years ago. Even started for Oranje at LB during the WC shortly after as a 17 year old. Save to say his career path has been rather disappointing. Just lacks football smarts. Quite a goal with his weaker foot here, however.

    Alexander Arnold didn't look very good there, either.

    It was a bit like everyone thought it was offside and didn't put all the effort in chasing back.

    They got it back quick, but legit why even have VAR if you’re gonna allow that.
