Dislike both sides, not often I say this but I really hope Man U win this one.

A much better game than 0-0 would suggest.
I remember goals, I think I saw one once, but it was so long ago that I am not sure.

Well the fact that in FF the MoM was a goalie, and 4 defenders and the other GK make up the top 6 supports that - as 0-0s goes that was a good watch.

Perfect result for Foxes, Spurs and Citeh.....

I think both teams will regret not going for it when they analyse the game but a draw was fair enough.

Is that 3 entire games without a goal for Red Scouse now?

Surely it's the other way round?

Anyway, I had a good bet yesterday, part of an acca had the North-West-Snore-Fest as a draw, which bumped the odds. Cashed some of it out before that absolute fraud Messi ****ed me in the arse dry by losing a cup final. Natural born bottler that boy.

well I think this may be Red Scouse's issue

Liverpool has scored one goal from 62 shots in their last four Premier League games, a conversion rate of 1.6%.

Well you being in the future does make it sound like you'd know the result first but 4.00pm does sound like it comes before midnight :lol:

I wouldn't say we've had 62 shots in the last 4 games to be honest, they've got to be including random swipes at the ball that go nowhere near the goal. We just haven't created enough viable chances. Yesterday Firmino was terrible, his passing was way off the mark which is strange as he was just coming in to form when this poor run started. With the front 3 out of form it's time to give Minamino a chance for a few games in a row and see if he was a waste of money or not.

In other news I saw that City may be after Lukaku? That can't be true can it?

Surprisingly there seems a lot of chatter about it.

Turning circle of a battleship. Poor first touch. Well established failure to score goals against half decent opponents. Doesn't really sound like City material.

I guess he does ok linking up with De Bruyne with Belgium, maybe that's the reasoning behind the link. He'd be a hell of a downgrade on Aguero though.

Yeah, but think how much Aguero would sell for, and who they'd be able to use that as a down-payment for?

I'm guessing absolutely nothing? His contract is expiring and they're asking him to take a 50% pay cut, if he leaves on a free he can probably keep his current salary at his new club.

Makes sense.
