I don't recall Leicester City ever trying to play possession like this in the past....trying take take some wind out of United's sails?

Good opening for both sides there - Fred should be on a card for that Kobra Kai leg sweep, DeGea in midseason form with that stop, and only a bit unlucky on the handball call - looks to me to have hit chest and shoulder region, but sticking the arm out like that was not the brightest of ideas there....Leicester looks to be a fun team to watch, and Vardy isn't even there to run in behind today!

edit......on replay, stupid move, completely a handling there!

Manchester United look weird without their typical white shorts.

Hey @Zomp tell me again which of these clubs has the top 4 aspirations, the lead and is at home? If you told me this game was at the King Power and Leceister had gotten an early penalty and they were hanging on by their fingernails I would have believed you.

How productive would Vardy be if he and Mo Salah swapped teams?

Newcastle - Spurs is silly and disjointed and fun.

I'm changing my predictions. Spurs are missing the CL this year purely as karmic retribution for this awful away kit.

Newcastle 1-2 Spurs at 60’ but Newcastle attacking furiously. Don’t think Spurs are getting out of here with 3 points.

Tottenham in a fierce competition with Liverpool for ugliest kits this season I see. Seems to be a lot of those this year.

Yes, these Spurs kits are an atrocity. Spurs have not had a good 2nd half and they’ve been suffering at the feet of Johnjo Pirlo who has been excellent

Looked like a hyperextension? Just a strain on the knee ligaments? At least he’s not being carted off.

Not a good performance from Spurs, who failed to control the game in the second half and got bailed out by Lloris. But it's 3 points away from home with so many key players having barely trained. I'll take it.

I haven’t paid much attention this summer is the nBC Sports gold thing going to be more impactful this year? I really want to watch Everton vs Portuguese National B team this afternoon

Fulham’s keeper was entirely responsible for both goals today. Just terrible work on the first and a bad decision to come out on the second.

Also, with all the money Fulham spent, couldn't they do better than Calum Chambers at the back?
