Back to office today, but I'm gonna try to carve out a few hours at 10 to watch Spurs.

Mitrovic almost finished that one off, his chip saved off the line at the last second.

Ranieri looks sick to his stomach. Something about this Fulham side just doesn’t work right.

Looking for a Liverpool win, big would love to see a strong effort from Yedlin today. Can he effectively battle Mane and get forward every now and again?

Spurs with 2 goals in first 22---Eriksen and now Son. 2-0 over Bournemouth.

And now Moura nets one--Spurs going nuts again, up 3-0. That's 9 goals in their last 90 or so minutes.

Firmino's looked a bit off, just some poor touches and getting caught in possession, wouldn't mind seeing Origi or Sturridge get a spell today (think both are on the bench)

Harry Wilson's scored yet another outstanding free kick for Derby

I’d think Origi in an effort to showcase him for a transfer this window, salvage some return for him.

Harry Kane refuses to be left off the scoresheet, now 4-0 in 61st minute with a really nice goal.

Kyle Walker-Peters (the superior Kyle Walker??) had three assists today in the first half for Spurs.

Salah, PEA and Kane now all tied with 12 goals on the season. That looks like a great race for the golden boot.

Son scores his second on a really weird scramble in front of goal, now 5-0.

Don’t look now but LFC is on pace for the fewest goals allowed in a PL season.

Imagine saying that 12 months ago.


Record is 15 by Chelsea a decade ago. LFC have given up 7 half way through.

Rebecca Lowe just described Brighton as "decent at home." That's some killer faint praise right there.

PEA coolly bends one home after Brighton muff 3 or 4 chances to clear their lines.

Also, why are Arsenal wearing PSG kits today?

California. Duh.
Norwich was 3-0 down with 15 minutes to go and came back for a 3-3 draw, completing it with goals in the 94th and 98th minute.

Not sure what Lichsteiner was doing - misjudged the ball or thought Leno had stepped out? Either way, his miscue lets Brighton through for a break away goal. 1-1 in an increasingly entertaining game.

I'm pretty sure he just screwed up his header. Leno came out way too aggressively though, and it's not the first time he's done that.

Brighton with a hard-fought point. That terrible non-clearance aside, I thought they looked good today.

WIthin a couple minutes of each other, Southampton go ahead on one of the uglier goals you'll ever see, then Felipe Anderson comes right back and zings a shot near post that Alex McCarthy doesn't get within 2 yards of.

Enlarged Andrew coming on shortly

Anderson brilliantly finishes a counter off a Southampton corner, 2-1 now for West Ham

I'm not sure how Vestergaard is still in the Premier League

West Ham down 11 players to injury or illness
Still got 3 on the road even starting a striker at RB.
