WHO Poll

Saturday football
It’s been a geological age since the last Premier League action. But the dragon at last awakes and offers tasty slices of bread around a not entirely unappetising filling in today’s Premier League sandwich.

LIVERPOOL vs MAN UTD (1230 ko)
The two Manchester clubs sit neck and neck at the top of the table, separated by only the narrowest goal difference. Klopp’s Scousers are yet to fire the burners this season and they’ll have no better opportunity than today to show what they’re made of. It won’t be easy for the home team, though, and they’ll need all the full-throated, guttural support they can get. There’s everything to play for here, much to win and much to lose. Anyone who says otherwise, who claims that it’s only about three points, is talking out of his rear end. Draw.

We go into this on the back of a one-nil over Swansea last time and seven points out of the last possible 12. Burnley come into it after a one-nil win at Goodison Park and six points from the last possible 12. Curiously, their home form hasn’t been so good this season, having drawn with Huddersfield, squeaked past Palace and lost to West Brom in their three home games to date. Yet they sit comfortably in sixth place, just below Arsenal. We have a decent record at Turf Moor and our defence seems to have sorted out early-season defensive issues. So what to make of this encounter? It’s hard to say, but with Lanzini and Antonio both back in the team and Chicharito to be confirmed, it looks like we’ll offer a strong opposition. A victory in would certainly put wind into our sails, but Burnley will be no pushovers. He who gets his tactics right will emerge victorious, as the Romans always said in days of yore. Expect a turgid game of few chances that’s unlikely to make top billing on MOTD. Draw.

If ever there were a banker, here it is. Goalless, pointless Palace take on the champions, with home advantage the only thing in their favour. But even that’s no given. That old adage, don’t Conte your chickens before they’re hatched, applies as ever, of course, but there are few who’d wager against all three points heading towards west London. The only question is how emphatically they go. Away win.

Here’s City’s chance to open up a lead at the top – if their neighbours fail to leave Anfield with all three points. Man City have played some compelling football this season, often – it seems – scoring at will. They have a greater plus goal difference than poor old Crystal Palace’s minus. Solid organisation and a resolute defence will be key if Stoke are to avoid becoming the latest whipping boys at the Etihad, but it’s hard to see them holding out a full 90 minutes – let alone the full first half. Home win.

It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobblestreets silent as the Jack Army prepares to rise and welcome another dog-related football team, the Terriers, to the Liberty Stadium. Both teams have shown some early-season promise, but there’s a sense of a long battle ahead for both. Walkies. Draw.

All the headlines will be about Kane and whether he’ll be able to add to an impressive recent goalscoring record. For all the Cherries’ anticipated huffing and defensive puffing, their hosts will prove just too strong. Home win.

WATFORD vs ARSENAL (1730 ko)
Surprisingly, just one point separates these two in today’s late kick-off. Arsenal’s away form – and particularly their goalscoring away from home – is a cause for concern, as well as offering yet more fodder to their boo-boys. The influential Koscielny is doubtful, while Sanchez is recovering from his recent round-the-world trip. Despite the Hornets’ strong start to the campaign, they are yet to win at home this season. It’s a funny old game. Away win.

Newcastle 2-1 up, manager makes a defensive substitution to shore up midfield, then takes off front man. Game finishes 2-2. Imagine some WHO notebooks will be having a name scribbled out around about now. Or not.

Re: Saturday football
Long played the ball to the side and saw that the bloke was going to slide in so just got in his way.
Clever play. Defender just needed to stand up

Ref should have sent off both Yedlin and Hayden for second yellows but bottled it.
Now he has allowed two Newcastle players who went down for treatment to stay on the pitch.

True. But the saints player was already on his way down when the Geordie caught him

Southampton 1 Newcastle 2 after more fumbling from Desperate Dan

Kevin Friend let’s Yedlin from Newcastle off a stonewall yellow as he would have had to send him off.
Could have done with his incompetence up at Burnley

That Silva was not on Silkman or Mackays list of numbers and not big enough for Sullivan I guess :-)

Oh what might have been :-(

Watford. How to manage and build a side. Few times this season they’ve come from behind. Going 4th. How silly of them to spend all that money.

Re: Saturday football
Was a guess basically
Very hard to judge at full speed but wasn’t anything about it that made it LOOK an obvious pen

An unusual decision to be given AGAINST a big team

Re: Saturday football
Watford looked a dispirited lot at the end of last season under the Mafia looking bloke.
Silva seems to have revitalised them and added a bit of pace with Gray & Richarlison without spending that much.

Silva has a two year contract.

Just saying

Just watched two mins of this game.

Has the entire thing been this boring?

Jose knows how to kill a game off before it starts.
