Being reported at HT that Rashford will miss 2 to 3 months.

Double stress fracture of the back and a floating piece of bone in his ankle, so 2 ops basically. Will be lucky to make the Euros I reckon.

Danny Ings to lead the line!

Phil Jones to finally prove he is the ultimate utility player.

Got to keep asking though, because eventually someone will be the first to get the quote and the headline "Klopp finally confident of title win".

I get it's tedious though. But then Liverpool basically have the title wrapped up halfway through the season, it's a rarity.

The funny thing is that Fabinho literally already did this last week, but the English press pay no mind to foreign media.

David Luiz gives away a penalty and gets sent off?

Beautiful.

Not to excuse Bernd Leno, but Mustafi strikes again.

Absolute liability again and again.

That confession has done Lejeune the world of good, concentrating on his football and two goals in two minutes.

1-1. It's actually quite staggering how shit Chelsea have been since Arsenal went a man down.

This Raw style "David Luiz watching telly" cam is amazing.

Wish someone had given him a beer.

He's only got little arms, leave him alone

Just the sheer effort he's gone to. The bog roll is perfect.

I said to my girlfriend's flatmate before the game (he's a Newcastle fan) that the style of doing very little then having a huge slice of luck appears to be carrying Newcastle through. Little did I know how much of a prediction that would end up being.

Newcastle were utterly abysmal for the entire game. Everton controlled it after Kean's goal completely...and then go and let in two desperation set piece goals in injury time. Wonderful.

Mustafi and Luiz continue to be utter bombscares. Martinelli continues to be amazing. Arsenal continue to draw.

Awful.

Don't worry. Every time we have a chance to close the gap on 4th place, we absolutely blow it. Expecting no different tonight.

We're down to literal bare bones, one semi fit striker, no senior midfielders because one of them is covering one of our 3 injured full backs, and Christian fucking Atsu is on the pitch. We had to put a centre half on for said striker because there's nothing else left. We're playing defensively trying to nick something, and while yesterday was pretty unprecedented I think we deserved a draw against Chelsea who really created very little (the win was of course a nice bonus). Didn't see last nights, and obviously conceding two goals tells a different story, but you make your own luck to an extent and three of our centre backs (Lejeune, Schar and Fernandez) are probably the three best footballers in our side as the goals and assists tallies are showing.

Tl:dr. Yeah, jammy as hell, but 😛

Based on what I saw last night, you should just play a team of centre halves. It seems to be working.

That's what I'm saying, it's all we have other than playing our sub keeper up top.

The 2nd goal that Newcastle scored was straight from a crap 90s football tweet

Bruceball. He's reinverted the pyramid. I thought we were playing a 5-5-0 last night after Joelinton went off, but in fact, we were playing a 0-5-5 with inverted centrebacks.

4D Chess indeed.

Gabriel Martinelli is going to be a star. Plucked him from the Brazilian 4th tier too. The kid plays with absolutely no fear whatsoever.

Hopefully we can properly restructure parts of the squad in the summer because despite the results not exactly going our way yet, Mikel Arteta really does have something about him as a coach. It's been years since I have seen us with a genuine identity and plan going into matches and he has brought that with him. 

Also, a word on Bukayo Saka. He's an 18-year old winger playing at left-back and making it look easy.

I don't like your optimism.

      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.

      I remember a while ago we used to predict who would finish where in the table so I thought I'd put EWB to the test and see who was the best at predicting what would happen in the Prem this season. Who will be our version of Paul the Octopus and who will be as good as predicting things as Mark Lawrenson. There will be 5 questions with a total of 100 points up for grab and come the end of the season I will add all the points up to crown our first winner.
      Question 1) Top goal scorer (5 points for correctly guessing the top scorer, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top scorer and amount of goals)
      Question 2) Most assists (5 points for correctly guessing the top assist maker, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top and amount of assists)
      Question 3) First team to sack their manager (10 points)
      Question 4) Predict the table (2 points for each correct position,
      Question 5) Predict the three teams which get promoted to the Prem (5 points for each team guessed correctly, If you get all three correct; a extra 5 points is awarded)
       
      Here are my answers:

      1) Diego Costa - 22 goals
      2) Coutinho- 14 Assists
      3) Watford will sack their manager first
      4) Chelsea, Man.Utd, Man.City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Swansea, Southampton, Everton, Stoke, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Brom, Aston Villa, Leicester, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Norwich, Watford
      5) QPR, Middlesbrough, Hull City
