We should know by now from experience that you can't bank on at least 14 of the teams in this league to 'do you a favour' because they're just no good.
Whereas we've lost to two of those 14 no-good teams, as well as losing to both title contenders at home. Which is why we will likely need an almost perfect second half to the season including a win at Anfield to overtake them.

Can't see it imo. Only a fully fit squad may have a chance - but I doubt it .

When will the referees learn?
I agree with that too. But they seem determined to give him a pen whenever they're able to. Which I don't get, because after his repeated diving should, in a normal world, mean that he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt every time. Every fuckting time.

Exactly. Remember when Dele was accused of easy diving. He didn't get anything for ages, even when it was a clear penalty.

Newcastle already behind. Far too much of a stretch to hope they get something tonight, they're gash.

Just hope Chelsea don't improve their GD by too much.

Opposition managers need to absolutely bring it up before games. He is the highest profile diver in the division.
I guarantee if he were English he would be getting booked left right and centre for it. It’s crazy that he gets preferential treatment. The fact he’s one of the most high profile Muslims in the world and his ethnicity certainly seems to help imo.

Another fucking penalty. When will defenders learn that you literally can't touch Salah or he will go down and get a pen.
I was watching him today, a lot of his ingame motion has him leaning most of the time where he is already off balance before anyone gets near him in and around th penalty box.
