    Firmino is officially my favourite player. Involved in almost every attack.

    Whilst watching the match I was imbibing King Goblin beer (6.6%), I think it will now be my beer of choice for home games. I will have one for every goal we score as I have done today. Could be in trouble if we score more than 5 in a game though.

    I think it's relationships...the introduction of Mane and his attacking pace has let those ahead of him bloom.

    Must be great to have players running beyond that trust you can get it too them and vice versa.

    Add Klopp to that mix too of course.

    I think he's been great since coming in at LB. Much more reliable than Moreno and offers more going forward too imo.

    Very much looking forward to Motd tonight, guessing we were excellent in attack again but still some defensive issues to sort out. On the Leicester aspect, Kante is looking to be a huge loss, and I mean huge. Thought in their games before the international break that the CB pairing look very vulnerable without him, Huth and Morgan look more like what they are, old fashioned lumps.

    Probability of spotting a Manc after today's results?

    They will be lucky to finish top 10 without Kante. Average team without him, and an easy team to play against now.

    Kante is a massive miss for them but Mahrez hasn't looked anything like a player yet this season either. They will get better as the season goes on but will not hit last years heights again.

    well lets face it they had a run of vardy 8 in a row. take that back to even half and they drop right off and prob settle for 6th.

    they covered those cbs really well last season but while drinkwater was good the other lad was muck and we cut those cbs up.

    the BT lads showed sides sitting 10 yards deeper and just cutting of the sole Leicester game plan but we did not. we just went at them and once we broke their high press there were gaps everywhere.

    Its only early yet so we will see where they end up. but one things for sure their title defence is over already.

    players get on runs mahrez had a great time last year. So did vardy.... both will need to hit top form VERY quickly for leicester not to be looking at 40 points as a target.

    Kasper Schcumson was very good but huth and morgan got exposed big time here.

    Kante is world class and head and shoulders above anyone else in the world in the defensive midfield position.

    Every team would miss him.


    Ah well, at least we've won the league. Quite happy to go back to mid table :)

    Thought Kaspar was awesome for Leicester today, to think City let him and Hart go for Bravo. I saw the Utd/City game and Bravo looks very iffy, I know it was jis first game but a weak link I think.

    Awesome?

    Made one save where the ball was just hit straight at him, stood still for the first goal, gifted the fourth goal and probably made about 2 successful passes.

    He was our best player but I gave him a 3 out of 10 over on FoxesTalk.

    Isn't the guy you bought to replace him injured too?

    We haven't signed anyone to replace him.

    We signed Mendy who isn't a defensive midfielder but the media have been telling everyone he's the new Kane because they look identical.

    Unfortunately we missed out on Adrien Silva on deadline day.
