I also wonder why Conte is time wasting with his substitutions?

There is something very strange going on here.

I see that Salah has scored more goals this season than the entire Newcastle team..... thank goodness we weren't daft enough to sign an injured striker in the Jan transfer window :roll:

Putting hazard up top and playing long ball when you just bought a striker who is excellent at holding the ball up....

Think conte knows he's keeping the seat warm for someone else next year, and doesn't care anymore

Chelsea were dire from what I here. Does Conte know he's gone and has given up?

Palace are 2-0 up against United :shock:

The inevitable march of City towards the title continues. Theoretically they could wrap it up before the end of March...

A comeback that reached back into the 'Fergie-time' era :D

However, I don't that will scare City :(

Palace ran out of legs towards the end. It was a good effort though.

United have a massively potent attack with Sanchez, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Lindgard available and the best keeper in the world on current form, but what's in between is where they currently struggle.

Lindelof and Smalling don't work well together, Ashley Young isn't a left back and I've never rated Valencia. Matic is a decent holding midfielder but hasn't had a great season and Pogba just isn't worth his transfer fee. Gawd knows who the lanky number 39 was last night, he looked totally out of his depth.

Sanchez hasn't settled and doesn't know his role in the side. He hasn't had a decent game since he signed.

I had Palace down for a home win before the game started, and it looked likely until the last 20 minutes.

Matic had passed up about three or four shooting possibilities before he eventually took that shot on, and I must say, as an AFCB supporter I was pleased to see it hit the back of the net.

United still aren't winning the Premier League in the short term!

Good to see the fight though. For a while there it looked like United did not care.

Coming back from 2 goals down might just start them on a good run of results.

Mo Salah resembling Lionel Messi more and more as the days go by, similar stature, left footed, low centre of gravity, the scampering run, can't get the ball off them, brilliant in tight areas, prolific goalscorer. The former just needs to learn how to take a free kick. What a performance today, 4 goals and an assist. Can Liverpool hold onto him in the summer?

His last few interviews have been bizarre, to say the least. At one point he seemed to insinuate that he signed De Gea, and his footballing heritage speech was frankly embarrassing.

He took over the richest club in the world, with one of the most successful dynasties in sport history only a recent memory, the worlds biggest fan base, and a brand people want to play for... then gave lectures about how other clubs have "footballing heritage", while simultaneously saying his English isnt great and he cant really speak it.

Ok, in a roundabout way he had one valid point; City were a better side than his when he arrived, and have also spent money. Yet, he then rambled for 15 minutes about a load of shite.

He does seem to be cracking. The post Brighton and Seville press conferences he seemed like he was going crazy in
