There has been a significant reduction in quality at the top of the league. Liverpool  have players playing below their level so manure are closer to them.
Firmino was awful.

Liverpool's front three aren't firing at all and they are struggling a bit.  Salah doesn't look right and agree that Firmino was dreadful today.

For all the hype over the past few weeks, Manchester United aren't anywhere near a title winning side this season, despite SKY's best wishes.

Shaquiri really doesn't look like an athlete
His hair makes him look a bit like Charlie Chaplin

I saw Shaquiri warming up earlier and thought he looked the dead spit of Leonard off of The Big Bang Theory.

Shaquiri certainly got VFM with his hair transplant. Heís got too much now!

I think Man City will win the league with something to spare. They seem to be moving through the gears just recently.

Itís going to be a tough game against Man City, they have certainly got form the last few weeks and have so much depth in the squad I donít think fatigue is an issue for them. They are excellent again.

nah they're shit. We beat Palace 3-0 playing most of the game with 10 men. They've got only 4 having spent a billion trillion pounds with 11 men. Stick me down for 5-0 Villa.

Agree as do the bookies and let's face it it's more palatable than the other likely options.

Citeh 4/7
Liverpool 7/2
Yanited 7-1

Anything gained on Weds. would be a very good result.

Inter 2 Juventus 0. Lukaku is some player, power and skill in equal measure. Think heís gone up a level or two since moving to Italy.

There is a very good reason why Zaha itís stuck at Palace.

The standard cannot drop when that is about as good as Man United can produce. They're an elephant on a telegraph wire, nobody has the first clue how they got up there, including the PE teacher of a manager. Bruce ball extraordinaire, play for penalties or pray for a moment of individual quality.

I can think of about half a billion reasons why they have the players to produce moments of quality despite being an average team playing dull tactics.

Or the quality of the opposition has gone down a level or 2 or 3.

Itís a case of all teams catching up with tactics and fitness so much faster than in the past. Coaches can study every new system due to so much footy being aired and can be sussed within a few games. 

Iím not a American football fan.  But that sport constantly changes who the victors are due to micro studying tactics.

And this season is so wide open. 

Unless Citeh go mad. But they will be sussed on few games.

Bilbao beat Barcelona to win the "Spanish" Super Cup. Messi sent off in the last minute of extra time.
