Liverpool good value again v Spurs having 21 goal attempts with 13 on target.
They have now already played:-
Spurs
Chelsea
Arsenal
Leicester
Man Utd
and have 28 points from a possible 30
Not a bad start .
Next up Villa away and then City at home.
I can't see City stopping them scoring but of course City are the highest scorers in the division so, a Championship decider already?

Didn't watch the first 30 so can't comment on that but thought they played well from minutes 30-85. Still think they need more than a Fabinho - Wijnaldum - Henderson midfield but it's clearly working so can't really say anything. The Gomez for Salah sub was a poor call and nearly backfired, surely Lallana or Origi would have been a better call?

I think Pep and City fans will take your view that their game will be very important into deciding the Championship. Possibly not a decider but 9 points off at this stage heavily favours it towards Liverpool. I personally think Liverpool will walk the league, City's defence is too poor, can see Salah, Mane and Firmino causing Stones, Otamendi and Fernandinho real problems at the back

Can you see any other team apart from these two winning it ?
No, so it could be a decider.

It isn't a decider at all. How many times have we seen a big points lead in the Premier League overturned?

You are very wrong. Leicester are playing very well.

And its November. There will be loads of games left and time to slip up. Remember Newcastle slipping up a big lead.

Man City win then it decides nothing. If Liverpool win I don't think Pep will just be like 'mama mia we give up-a the league now that-a Liverpool have beaten us".

Utter drivel from you again.

Surprise, surprise you are having an "utter drivel" day.
You used the same term just now in the Weekend Football topic.
Time to come up with another derisory term for a change?

I blame the parents, the education system, Margaret Thatcher , Winston Churchill, Boris Johnson et al (Enfield, I had better explain that "et al" doesn't mean "and a bloke called Al") for people like this.

Liverpool's win last night causes issues for the Carabao Cup in that their QF is scheduled to take place the same week Liverpool will be at the World Club Championship.

Klopp already stating he is prepared to forfeit the tie against Villa if necessary - though this is obviously just a ploy to get the date moved to a suitable slot .

Issue is that the first available slot is w/c 6th Jan but the 1st leg of the semi final is scheduled for then. So if they play then they will have to squeeze in the 1st leg before the W/C 27th Jan when the 2nd leg is due.

Issue there is Liverpool play on the 19th and 23rd Jan already and FA Cup takes precedent so can't schedule it for the w/c 13th as that is set aside for FA Cup replays. So that date would be an issue if Liverpool win.

If Liverpool win v Villa and play the 1st leg when the 2nd leg is scheduled then the 2nd leg may encroach into the new winter break in Feb.

So all in all a bit of a mess.

It would be a good idea to bring the tie forward wouldn't it? Midweek next time there isn't Champions League perhaps.

There isn't a free midweek:

5/11 CL
International Break the next 2 midweeks (12th and 19th)
27/11 CL
4/12 PL game v Everton
10/12 CL

Successful clubs always have fixture issues and I bet teams like Spurs and Man Utd would love to have similar problems.

Last night's game was a cracker with some outstanding goals from both sides.
Liverpool will be delighted at the outcome having started with two 17 year-olds (both making first team debuts) and a 16 year-old with subsequent young subs as well.
The right-back position is looking good for the future with 17 year-old Williams a chip off the old block with the Dutch lad who scored in the previous round also waiting-I expect Trent to be playing right midfield within a year.

My tip for the top is Curtis Jones, a genuine scouser with great assurance on the ball and it was no surprise to see him convert the final penalty .
For a player with quite a few limitations Origi certainly knows when to pick his times to shine.

Or Thursday 7 November. Villa and Liverpool don’t play until the Sunday. Liverpool will probably make 11 changes anyway so them playing on the Tuesday night before probably doesn’t make any difference. Although that is short notice now

Real pity that Elliott has started perfecting his diving already.

Otherwise such a fantastic game to watch.

Oh, and Arsenal losing 8)

Obviously cracking draws for Oxford and Colchester, albeit part of me wanted them to draw each other, just to guarantee a smaller club in the semi finals.

Think the 7th would need UEFA approval as it would clash with the Europa League and as you say is very short notice.

Jan 8th is the most likely date but will cause knock on issues to the semi finals if Liverpool win but imagine they will go with that date and cross that bridge when they come to it.

Easy to sort. Just pull out of the FIFA “friendlies”. I also hear Liverpool’s game with West Ham on 20 dec has to be rearranged because of this pointless competition that would be better placed in the summer months anyway.

Alternatively just split the squad in two so both get played (it’s be a largely reserve team they’d field in the LC anyway)
