Terrible game that, I don't get the Arsenal praise at all, City were barely been in second gear and just coasting out the game. Two key players out for City and Arsenal should've felt they could've have done more.
Apparently Arsenal are the 3rd worst team in the league for chance creation. Really not getting this Arteta loving, despite the FA Cup he should be getting questioned every bit as much as Lampard and Ole.

I think Jose and Spurs will win the title this season.
They have the squad depth, injury free and the most potent front 3 in the league.

It feels like 2014-2015 season.

Average number of goals per game so far this season: 3.8

Average number of goals per game in 19/20: 2.7
Average number of goals per game in 18/19: 2.8
Average number of goals per game in 17/18: 2.7
Average number of goals per game in 16/17: 2.8
Average number of goals per game in 15/16: 2.7
Average number of goals per game in 14/15: 2.6

I know it's only been 5 games into the season. But the PL so far have been absolutely full of goals.

I don't know if that's a VAR thing, or a tiredness thing, or poor defending thing. But it is a thing.

Chelsea fan.
Ola Aina and RLC playing for Fulham. Hope they both do well, I had really high hopes for Aina (and have not given up on RLC just yet).

McBurnie with about his 80th miss of the day. SU need to start someone who can actually finish like Sharp or Brewster.

Jose always perform best in his second season so who knows, but I still think winning the title with this Spurs squad might be step too much for Jose. If he does, would you rate it as a higher achievement than Leicester? I personally think it would go down as one of his biggest achievement and comebacks to do it when everyone thinks he's finished as an elite manager.

Draws in the Spurs and Villa games and it will have been a great weekend for us on balance.

To be fair, comparing it to the bolded part would be best.

If you've got no points and then you're losing against Fulham/not scoring against them you know you're in serious trouble.

How is everyone seemingly watching this? It’s on pay per view? Surely you guys haven’t paid have you?
