unless injuries strike them hard

the dippers are going to win the league at a canter

they are simply too good, too driven, too well coached

the only negative thing I see, is that they take big risks at the back

Liverpool look unreal going forward just as they always do and Mané & Salah weren't even sharp today. They create massive goal scoring chances with ease whenever they want.

But you can certainly see where they can be exploited defensively. It's just that nobody is able to punish them regularly enough. Ceballos playing those Fabregas balls over and over and finding joy every time.

Arteta's game plan against Liverpool was no different from ours last weekend but their system/setup was even worse because they essentially gave Robertson and TAA - two full backs who are a BIG part of Liverpool's attacking approach - free reign with that back 3/5.

Maybe one can point to bad finishing but those chances that Arsenal had, they highlight the importance of having a quality goalkeeper. Alisson saved those while for example, we had Caballero in goal on Saturday and we conceded 3 goals from West Brom's 3 shots on target.

He really is an incredible keeper. And not just his shot stopping. His positioning and anticipation is insane.

I don't think Liv are as good as people are saying, I just think the premier league is pretty weak tactically besides city who are just inconsistent. Was looking at the way Napoli and Inter were playing this weekend and was so jealous... 

Liv does the basics right and play as a team, something we're not even close to doing right now and last season

What you say has no consistency.

Europe's best coaches are in the Premier League.
Is it true that Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal have inexperienced coaches but in another league do you have a list of coaches like Klopp, Guardiola, Mourinho, Ancelotti, Brendan Rodgers, Bielsa, Hasenhuttl, Potter, Nuno ...?

I have no sympathy for Liverpool, Klopp or his increasingly pretentious and arrogant players.
But they are the best football project in Europe in recent years.
An author project with 5 years of work.
Klopp has won the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup since taking charge of Liverpool.
And that was not based on luck.

Like any other, this cycle will come to an end, but it looks like it won't be this year yet.

Manes elbow was a red for any other team. Everybody knows it's fixed... the decision for all this was taken in the immediate aftermath of City humiliating them in May 2019...not good for the PL product to have a team without millions of far eastern plazzers. None of the penalties City conceded on Sunday would have been given in an opponents favour at the victimdrome. Give the victims the title now.

Nice they have a goalie who knows what to do. Definitely part of the reason they'll be champions if not contenders again. Early days but still..see what happens.
