West Ham v Liverpool could be interesting.
Liverpool have an injury crisis at CB, but Antonio who would normally be tasked with exploiting it won't play.

Will be interesting to see how Moyes lines up. The 5-4-1 that has had success lately doesn't really work without Antonio. Have to wonder if he goes to a 3-5-2 or a 4-2-3-1 to get Haller up top as part of an attacking triangle (where he had the most success at Frankfurt).

That's a penalty.

God this game makes me angry sometimes.

Of course, I just added Zaha to my fantasy team, so that was the kiss of death.

Im 4 points behind you, may the best team in the SoSH EPL fantasy relegation zone win!
Every season I think I have it figured out. Every season I realize how wrong I am.

My only decent season was basically on the back of triple-captaining Aguero on a day he scored 5 goals.

My fantasy team appreciates that Clean sheet.

(I had to stop FM20 for a while, Chesterfield may be tearing up the National League, but I can't trust myself to limit my time when I get in)

Stupid Peacock. I’m petty enough to admit I’d really enjoy watching City batter the Pigs. Up 1-0, 80-20% possession, 7 shots (5 on target) to none. Half hour in.

Edit: or I finally figured out how to link my Comcast account. With my luck I get to witness the half that turns United’s season around.

The top of the league is a bit more open this year, with City and Liverpool scuffling a bit, and hot starts from the likes of Villa, Everton and Wolves. But the bottom clubs are separating themselves early, with Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham looking like solid bets for the drop, and only West Brom looking like fighting for the honor.
Early days, I know.

In recent years it's seemed like there has been not much real drama at the top of the table, and a huge mess of teams in the relegation fight. Feels like this season could be the opposite, 4 teams for 3 spots at the bottom and a wide open top 5.

What on earth is Gomez heading that towards? and how does Jones give Masuaku that much room for the initial cross in?

In for some good times with this backline

Lol, there was contact, but the shameless dive 3 seconds delayed and in the opposite direction of the contact was some immense acting

Yeah no way you can look at that and say he didn't sell it - I'd rather that than he get his ACL blown out with no pen given :cool:

Honestly the only question on this should be....
is it no goal

or

no goal and a card on Mane

Good lord what was Yarmolenko doing btw... tried to dribble through 2 instead of clearing.

Great pass, but the pressure should have been relieved before that.

Whew

I think that was the first pitch side review that overturned the original call .. progress?

Still .. clear and obvious error? Mane and Fabianski and the CB all going for the ball ..

Another dour display by Liverpool .. but they got the three points ..

Arsenal/ManU is on fucking Peacock today. This is going to massively hurt the development of the US soccer audience.
