Can't see many first team players playing in the FA Cup for us this year.

Pretty poor first half until TAA came on - moving Gomez to his better position of CB.

Other than his goal, I thought Keita was having a poor game

So at what point are Man City not the main title rivals?

If Leicester win tomorrow they are our main rivals and I would expect them to beat Villa.

Can’t see you being caught now, unless things go horribly wrong in the next few games.

I dunno this is when you derailed your own bid last time isn't it? Or the next month. Start messing with the squad, resting, playing weakened teams and losing. Just losing momentum really.

I think in Jan it'd be much clearer. But with the current City form, I'm not even convinced they'll catch Leicester. There doesn't seem to be anyone else in it

losing one game all season and reaching 97 points is hardly "derailing" our own bid.we has an incredible League season ,only undone by an unbelievable City one.

Well at least that's something you won't have to worry about this season!
Can't believe that we're out of the title race in the first week of December, but shocking inconsistency isn't good enough to be in the mix these days.

I can’t see anyone but Leicester catching them at the minute and I can’t see Klopp messing with the squad except for cup competitions. Despite all the corrupt officials and massive anti Liverpool bias from the FA, UEFA, FIFA and the WI they are going really well. Unless December brings even more injuries I just can’t see anyone catching them.

City certainly now seem to be out of it - they effectively need Liverpool to lose 5 games in the next 22 games (when they have only lost once in the last 53) whilst barely dropping a point themselves.

Leicester ?? Too early to tell yet - but once they have played both City and us, over Christmas, the picture may be clearer.

Can possibly see Leicester putting enough form together for a similar run that won them the title last time out. Lets not forget, not only did Leicester play well, but everyone else had a bit of a nightmare as well. I just don't see them being able to put together enough to overhaul Liverpool, but possibly do well enough to have enough points that might have won them the title in 5 of the last 20 years or something.

I know you shouldn't write Man City off (lol we now need to specify which City we mean), but they don't look like the team that are about to go on a 22 game winning streak which is what they effectively need.

At what point do we start talking about an Invincibles season?

Never. I'd take >100 points over an unbeaten season.
