Would be fantastic, but if City turn up, this could be a massacre.

0-0 at half time and Brighton giving a pretty good account of themselves too

MOTD are saying Watford's late equaliser was offside and shouldn't have counted. Am I being thick, but doesn't the ball have to go forward to be offside? It doesn't, it goes slightly backwards, at worst sideways! :?

As much as we bemoan the amount of money in the game now it's actually helping to level the playing field. Mounie scored 14 goals last year in Ligue 1, only one less than Mbappe, and he's playing for Huddersfield Town.

I see James Tomkins didn't make Frank de Boers first starting XI at Palace .

He'll probably make into his next starting line up after that result! Still not sure it was the best move for him.

Could've done much better for the 3rd goal imo. I wouldn't want him back as many seem to do

Unless they've changed the offside law then Shearer has got it wrong.
The cross is indeed going backwards and it appears to be Mignolet's hand that diverts it goalwards.

I also reckon the commentary team got an earlier claim in the Chelsea match wrong too, when they claimed that Motata's would-be second goal would have gone in if he hadn't touched it. It looked to be curling away from the goal in the side-on replay.
At least the pundits agreed with the ref on the sendings off, and even pointed out Fabregas perhaps ought to have had a straight red.

Somehow Kane is still on the pitch after a horrid scissors tackle from behind, 100% red card

Yeah but scissor tackling from behind, it was highly dangerous leg breaker, red every day of the week, you can't have them tackles on a pitch. Everybody going to get two of them before a red, we'd end the game with 10 injuries

What a donut Shelvey is, ref staring straight at him whilst he stands on Alli's ankle.

Good to see shelvey has grown up and as captain, that was inexcusable, doing so well against one of the top teane
