    Rodgers doing another fine job (after Arsenal at home) of showing he has what it takes to be Man Utd manager. Can see what they see in him. Quite a few Ole-esque traits in him:

    βœ” Bottles big moments
    βœ” Gets taught a lesson by rivals at home
    βœ” Plays young players

    Was just going to post similar Ed. Leicester are currently in 12th behind Everton. Yet the media seem blinkered about him and parade him as a top elite manager who plays great football.

    Embarrassing stuff from his side today Mikus. Not a single shot after an hour of football at home. I just pray the Utd board don’t think he’s the solution to our problems.

    Look Leicester don’t really have top class players always sort of rely on breakaways from the likes of Vardy so not much he can do if on the day opponents play to their real ability.

    Yup. It’s now a two horse race for me between Chelsea & City. Unless Liverpool stop the leaks very quickly.

    There’s an interesting trend emerging this season. City and Chelsea look better than ever and yet neither have a striker. I’m obviously referring to the period in which Lukaku has been injured.

    Liverpool didn’t really have a traditional striker when they won the league either. For all the “imagine if they had a striker” comments, I can’t help wondering if they’re as good as they are because of this fact rather than in spite of it.

    I think with the pressing nature of football now, every single player has to press as hard as each other. You can’t have any passengers. And no.9s tend to be selfish and aren’t accustomed to dropping deep to help the team.

    Ed I completely agree bud, every defender would prefer that no.9 to be able to focus on, fluid front 3 attacks pull you all over the place. As a team we have looked better without lukaku imo with havertz linking it all together wonderfully at times.

    Not to say we couldn’t do with a fit lukaku but we weren’t creating as many chances with him in the side and be interesting to see how it develops when he is back.

    Ed, possibly the modern day forward has to be more than just a goal scorer, I’ve always tried to instil the belief in forwards I’ve trained that with the ball they’re a centre forward without it they’re the first defender, what we’re seeing now is three players doing that………Pagan

    I hope all the accolades being thrown Chelsea’s way today by the match day commentators and pundits as nice as they are to recieve doesn’t go to the players heads everyone needs to stay grounded.

    It was a good goal by Kante, but the space he had and the casual jogging back of the Leicester players was criminal. Outrageous considering the money these players are on.

    Far too early to be talking about a two horse race I fully expect a comfortable Liverpool win this evening.
