Some of Chelsea's decisions in the last year have been puzzling.

Getting rid of Conte now would add to that list of strange decisions.

It's gonna be good for the CL spots if Liverpool and Chelsea win. Spurs must have some kinda easy games coming up, after their recent run?

40 points might not be enough to avoid relegation this season.

Yet more evidence that Man U are going to go a long time without winning the Premier League title.

Budget, what happened to you? Bournemouth turning very jekyll and hyde recently.

I saw the Huddersfield result and expected to be in the relegation zone tonight. Mourino has never won at SJP, I think.

I believe the new keeper was outstanding

It's been Jeckyll since Christmas, 7 games unbeaten, was never going to last.

I would have taken a draw before the game started today but Huddersfield picked a very attacking line up and went for it. A touch of complacency from us and we never really got in the game.

Hope we can bounce back in two weeks time at home to Newcastle, Howe will not have been happy after the game. Ritchie scored his first goal of the season today, will be looking to put in a performance in a fortnight!

5 points between 10th and 18th. A lot of teams in the mix for the relegation spots.

United now must be a little worried of finishing outside the the top 4.
Over the last 5 years United have had a net spend every year of 80 million. Compared to 10 million for Liverpool and 500,000 for Spurs. To finish below those teams with Uniteds investment will put Jose in a tough position.

Yeah, but United wasted a lot of money before him.

Karma for all those years of dominance. It probably doesn't matter how much they spend or who the manager is!

Sanchez, Martial, Lukaku, Pogba all on the pitch today, and still couldn't score against Newcastle. Credit to Newcastle, they deserved to win, probably makes up for a few games they should have picked up points in and didn't.

And 6 points between 10th and 19th.

WBA at Chelsea tomorrow so you would think their situation is starting to get perilous, although Chelsea recently!!!

United has spent 300 million in the last 2 years with a net spend of 120 million for each season.

They are still in the strongest position to finish second.

Over the same period Liverpool have spent 220 million but have sold 250 million worth of talent.

I know United needed a lot of new players, but at present it just seems like a really unbalanced team with to many attackers for the way Jose likes to play, and light in midfield and defense.

And for me i just don't enjoy watching United play now. Maybe my judgments clouded by that.

Virgil Van Dijk came across as a right arrogant t*sser in his interview today.

Wonder what the Saints fans didnt get about him going on strike.

Jamaal Lascelles looked good yesterday from the highlights i watched.

Got to be close to an England call up soon..... Certainly was better than Jones and Smalling.
