All ifs and buts, I know, but how on earth did we lose to Leicester and fall apart at 2-0 v Chelsea? We'd be right up there behind City if we'd gotten the six points. 

Because they both played us like their lives depended on it. We're the team everyone wants to beat.

For me thw dropped pts at chelsea and tottenham were in a large part down to being weakened....Leicester was simply an abject display - they happen of course even to best sides, but sadly now with the bar at the level the cheats have moved it to they are more or less not 'allowed' now.

United winning 3-0 in a game where they've been second best.

 

Just shows that at its most elementary level, football is a game of scoring goals, and if you have players that can reliably do that, then you've always got a chance.

Harry Maguire came on and Fernandes didn't give him the arm band and Maguire didn't have the balls to demand it. Sums up that club.

Absolute clowns Leicester


Only a team managed by Brendan Rodgers could collapse like that in the dying seconds of overtime.

They also actually pushed up the field to attack each other, leaving space in behind (Bergwijn's last goal for example) - whereas, they strung 5-6 across the back against us hoping to hit us on the break. When they weren't time wasting that is.

Professional level punditry.

So he put Maguire on with five minutes left to demonstrate that he's no longer the captain?

 

Classy.


Nah he came on in the 71st minute.

Either that or he thought Brentford deserved something from the game and he’d give them a fair chance.

Spurs in the hunt for second 

No way, man.

 

Apparently Conte is a big risk, and won't do anything there.

Trust Rodgers to lose a game he was winning in the 94th min.

Only just seen the result and the manner of the defeat. Could be the most Rodgers defeat ever.

    • Two unsung heroes from last season could be heading in different directions in the January transfer window according to reports.   Nat Phillips remains a player of considerable interest to teams in the second half of the Premier League table.   The central defender has has only made three appearances for the Reds in this campaign as Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez have returned to senior action after lengthy injuries.   Currently Phillips is out of action with a fractured cheekbone suffered during his last appearance for the club at the San Siro against AC Milan last month.     The Echo reports that the club have rejected two bids during this window, one is believed to be from Watford and more interest is expected to come in the next few days.   Fellow perennial strugglers in Burnley and Newcastle have also had interest in Phillips while a move by West Ham was also mooted due to their own injury issues at centre back.   So while Phillips maybe slowly heading to the exit door, there is set to be a familiar face return with the club cutting short the loan spell of Rhys Williams at Swansea.     The 20 year-old who signed a long-term deal in the summer was loaned out to the Welsh club in August as the club wanted him to continue his learning curve and get more first team experience under his belt.   But to this stage of the season, Williams has only made seven appearances (five in the league) with Swans manager Russell Martin outlining the difficult position.   “We’ve been really honest with Liverpool about the opportunities Rhys has had and the potential opportunities he has moving forward, so the ball is in their court.   “We can’t send him back…That’s the danger of doing loans. The parent club is always in control, to an extent. I think Rhys is in contact with them constantly about what’s happening."   Despite his lack of first team opportunities, Martin was full of praise of his professionalism and general attitude.   “I think the frustrating thing for Rhys is that he’s really happy here, he’s enjoying training, he feels he’s improved, but the one disappointing thing for him is that he’s had limited opportunities.”
