    A player of Salahs caliber should not be seating on the bench for Sadio Mane..

    Coutinho and specially salah are clearly a tier above Firminsho and Mane

    Salah's touch and speed declined as he got tired, noticeably in this particular game. Salah is having a great run and is playing a lot, especially in Mane's absence thru injury. Couthino and Klopp don't see eye to eye. Which is too bad. Liverpool is actually relevant again because of Klopp. But he will try and over manage. The interview after the game with Klopp was a classic.

    This bust-up in the tunnel at Old Trafford today. It wasn't handbags: Mikel Arteta was left with blood pouring down face. Bottles as well as punches thrown. Romelu Lukaku prominently involved, according to witnesses.

    Yep.

    Very consistent. But still some shakiness on defense.

    They can be handled in the Champions League though if they immediately try to win the ball back after losing it. This is how they have been scored on. They rush to retake possession and get stretched. Or get caught piled up. But they definitely keep their spacing on D better than last year.

    Stones is injured. That's the main reason they've been scored upon. Mangala is dog shit and Otamendi is only half a player without his sidekick. But, as far as City goes, the best defense is a good offense. They don't give opponents many opportunities to score because the game is mainly played in the opponents half of the pitch. If you can't gain possession, you can't score. City will always be susceptible to the break always but unlike last year, teams are only netting around a quarter of those opportunities and those opportunities are far and few between.

    Stones is valued mainly for getting the ball started down the field. He is very handy with the ball. Kompany is back and they still jump on it. The point is, it may work in the EPL, but the Champions League? You are going to find teams that will absolutely punish this behavior without a clearly superior ball possession team. Which Guardiola had at Barca... I don't think he has that team now. He has a very, very good EPL team. And it's more than just getting possession. But taking risks to regain possession immediately.

    I guess this is more of a discussion concerning tactics used in different leagues. Adjustment is necessary. This is how Tottenham won their group quite easily. They showed they can counter. Dortmund and RM did not respect it because they play ball possession in the EPL. So they severely adjusted tactics. Sorry if I strayed, but people just don't post much here.

    Oh; and we will see this weekend. MC v. Tottenham should be interesting. Deli Ali has hit a really bad stretch but Son has taken up some slack. Meanwhile, Silva is scoring for MC? What the hell?

    Imo city are overrated because
    1. they play football in a league of kickball and their defense sees little offensive variation
    2. guardiola is good, but not great. His achilles heel is that he is too full of himself to realize that his system is situational, he has the golden boy syndrome like mourinho. Arrogant prick too.
    3. they aren't pushed constantly by rivals so when they'll meet opposition they won't be as prepared as real madrid for example.

    still they're a great team, and definately have a chance at the UCL.

    Bellerin?

    He can run down almost anyone...
    The guy may be one of the fastest players in the world.
    He holds Arsenal's 40 meter sprint record.
    Arsenal has much worse if you would like.

    They are a hugely profitable team without being competitive, a rarity. Why change?

    Absolutely. They are an Everton quality team with a Chelsea-like revenue stream. Unitil the whining #WengerOut fans actually stop funding the team, they can suffer.

    So is that the best the EPL has to offer because that was much worse than the score indicated? Spurs were lucky they didn't lose 7 or 8 to 1. Is the Premier League over yet Because It's getting boring trying to pretend about the competition?

    Everton isn't even in Arsenal's zip code, tbh. Everton's best player is Wayne Rooney. Just let that sink in for a second.

    City hasn't lost the last 26 EPL games, that's almost 3/4 of a regular season. Can they win this one undefeated like Arsenal?

    Nah, they'll get tripped up somewhere along the way. They aren't quite as clinical as they were earlier in the season.

    son real madrid are slumping right now but nobody wants to play them come knockout time. they also won euro trophies compared to english clubs.. so imo let city win a UCL and then we'll talk tbh.
