jurgen klopp

Liverpool gonna Liverpool, as they say. You couldn’t ask for a more better display of what we’ve come to see from Liverpool Football Club, the maddeningly inconsistent, than what we’ve just experienced in the past 48 hours.

Gary Cahill Says Sergio Aguero Foul was “Crazy,” “Not Like Him”

gary-cahill

Manchester City Striker Sergio Kun Aguero didn’t just challenge, or even tackle Chelsea Defender David Luiz, he hatcheted him. It was a slaughter, a butchering. Aguero has been suspended four games as punishment for his destroying of Luiz, and that was expected.

Whether it was sufficient enough or too lenient, is up to you to decide. What’s really not debatable though is the virtue of Luiz’s postmatch reaction. Credit him for taking the high road and refusing to discuss the play in the postgame media opportunities.

chelsea-manchester-city

Manchester City will be one of the toughest tests so far this season for Antonio Conte’s men.

Three points are crucial at this stage of the competition, thus Chelsea will definitely be looking for the win, not a draw. With a near fully fit squad, Conte will have a good variety of players to choose from heading into this game. That means we’ll see a really good starting XI as well as a very strong bench.

Fresh legs from Chelsea in the latter stages of the match could make the difference for them.

Currently there’s a big logjam around and at the top of the Premier League table. Chelsea are first, one point ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City. The Reds have the tie-breaker over the Citizens while Arsenal are two points behind both in fourth place.

Tottenham Hotspur are then four points below the Gunners in fifth place. It’s a four or maybe even a five team race to win the Premier League title, but don’t tell that to Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
