Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Yes Liverpool were back to their early seasons form. They pressed Watford and attacked dangerously ( for Watford ) with many attempts. The big hitters were back to form and goals just had to come as Watford buckled. Good to see Mo impressive and Mane getting back on the scoreboard. His second goal was outrageous and entertaining at the same time, Trent was back and in my opinion was man of the match.
City were scrambling and just made it through.
I watched Tottenham v Chelsea. Spurs were not a match for a
re-juvenated Chelsea. It was a tough encounter with flashes of agreesion from both teams. Harry Kane was not in the game at all and the second Chelsea goal was a farce. They will need to do better if they want to get into Europe. Arsenal won 5-1 and with Chelsea back and Man U winning, anything can happen.
United were hard hit by injuries and had to male 8 changes. Lucaku scored twice but even at 2 nil United did not have it all their way. Some wayward finishing helped United and until Young scored a third goal, Crystal Palace looked dangerous. This United team don't give in and in the end JUST scrambled home. I hope they can get some of the injuries sorted as we will need to to get into the top four.
Alltogether it was a good night for NW England teams
PS I wouldn't bet against Liverpool.
