I fecking hate Son. Always, always, always saving their arses.
Reminds me of Sanchez with Arsenal. Always scored and led them to win even when they were poor in a game, then we signed him and he became crap.

Spurs were pretty lucky to get that corner. Kane was going into the duel that led to the corner with his elbow in the defenders face. Looked like it should be a free kick for Burnley.

Brighton and West Brom up next so good chance to firmly establish yourself in top 4 by time December hits. You have mad run of games from that point against basically every single good team in this league.
City (h)
Chelsea (a)
Arsenal (h)
Palace (a)
Liverpool (a)
Leicester (h)
Wolves (a)
Fulham (h)
Leeds (h)
Villa (a)

Mixed bag there. Any other season and I'd say the first half of that list would be the tricky part, but it may well be the second half.

Little stat for you:

“Vardy has scored 10 times against Arsenal in the Premier league only Wayne Rooney has scored more with 12”
good s
Credit to Bale. Swapping the Real Madrid bench for the Spurs bench.
For 600 grand a week I’d happily sit on a 2 foot spike

Burnley would have scored three goals from these two corners if it had been Kepa in goal instead of Lloris.

If it stays like it is, I'll make a lot of money

But Burnley equalizing this late would be funny

Really pleased with the win there - Burnley were excellent I thought and really hard to play against but we managed to get the win and kept a clean sheet.

City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Leicester and Wolves all within 7 games is as tough as it gets this season particularly with europa into the mix (although Spurs will surely be through so can put B teams from round 4).

Man. City surely will have hit their stride in a months time and Chelsea are slowly getting better defensively.

Kane and Son surely must be nearing a Premier League record for assist-to-goal partnerships already?

I respect Dyche and Burnley for what they achieve each year but by good they are utter trash to play and watch.
They make it extremely difficult to play and they defend excellently. Most teams will find it a tough match there. So happy with the win.

Didn’t want to see Spurs win that match but fair play to Son top player and the difference once again

The December run will probably put them out of the top 4 race.
They're well in the top 4 race. I've changed my mind on them and would be surprised if they don't make the top 4 this season.

Does seem a bit of a bizarre way on here to push them as title favourites everytime they're winning a game. Guess they're seen as lesser evil or the Mourinho fans desperate for him to do it to prove Woodward wrong but they're still a fair way off that as good as their strikers are.

Their fans are definitely content with that I believe, considering the resources available, so I don't think I would have enjoyed the sport at all if I had supported such team. :D
