Did not know you could sub on a PK taker.
And of course he misses it.

Michael Oliver has tried so hard to give them the game too, shame.

Thought the game started at noon. Holy cow. Nothing like turning it on down 4-0

Don't worry Calvin, it could have been 5-0 or even 6-0. Only allowing four was as good as Chelsea was getting in that first half. It turns out City is pretty good.

it's just insane that 3 teams are likely going to have 90+ points - in any other season enough to win the league by 10 points, perhaps their best or 2nd ever best seasons but only one of them will get to lift the title...

Lester is no good.

Players are lacking but makes it way worse when the manager shoves them into roles they can't excel at. He's very rigid and just not good. Disaster hire.

He's an incredibly stubborn manager who won't adapt to suit the players assembled. I hope you keep him for the next 10 years.

There are a handful of good teams in the Premier League. Most aren't very good. So the good teams are getting loads of points. The majority do not have very good records.

I felt like I said that about 200 times during Mourinho's reign at United. Example 1A) Paul Pogba: Defensive Midfielder. In what world would you force your best player, and one of the best in the world, to play out of position in a role he doesn't like? Only in the minds of stubborn, rigid managers like Mourinho/Sari does that make any sense.

Yeah - shame too because of all the years to sneak into a Europa league place, this would be it for the mid table teams. As it stands we’ll still have the same 6...maybe Wolves/Watford get in if the cup finals go to the top 6.

List of players out for PSG against Man U:

Neymar (both legs)
Cavani (both legs)
Rabiot (lol)
Meunier (first leg)

Verratti seems to have recovered in time thank #$!&@ god. Front three includes either Choupo-Moting or a 19 year old academy graduate (Moussa Diaby).
I had a meeting at the Pentagon with lots of generals. They were like from a movie. Better looking than Tom Cruise & stronger.

they 'only' get to go with DiMaria, Mbappe, Draxler as their front 3.
Should still be a good match.

Draxler is passable on a good day and has a streak of absolute trash fire in him.
