Honestly don’t get the hype around them at the moment just because they’re top. People saying how great they look and discussing whether they can genuinely challenge for the top four.
They’re f**king sh*te.
They played spurs first game of the season who were miles off the pace. They weren’t prepared. Taking nothing away from Everton they can only beat whats in front of them but spurs were awful that day.
Then they go to palace and play sh*te. They came away with three points because var gave them a penalty with this new stupid handball rule. It was never a penalty.
Then they play West Brom and were losing at one point. Kieran Gibbs gets f**king sent off like a dick head and Everton put a few past them and win.
Then they play brighton and looked fairly good. But Brighton are sh*t.
So out of their four league games they’ve played two teams (both at home) who will be in a relegation fight. Palace who will finish bottom half. And tottenham who were extremely sluggish in their first game. So I wish everyone would stop shagging their arses.
Yeah they’ve had a decent cup run too but they’ve played f**king Salford, Fleetwood and f**king West Ham who didn’t even have their manager with them.
Now that’s out of the way, I’ll talk about us. Normally going into this game I’d be full of confidence. We’re a million miles better than them at the end of the day and will beat them 8-9 times out of 10. That said, after that disgraceful performance v Villa then who knows what’s done to our confidence. I’ve got a feeling fabinho will be in the back four for this one and only time will tell if it’s the right call or not. I suspect not, but I also thought it was a mistake at Chelsea and we completely dominated. I just think in a derby game especially, he needs to be in that midfield.
2-0 to the reds. Smash these lads, they’re f**king awful.
