Man United are clearly targeting Lovren by lumping the ball in the air toward Lukaku who is winning every header. 

Surely they need to put van Dijk on him?

Oh, now Sky have picked up on it.

Can't rule Liverpool out of this one. At least they can't throw the "playing for a 0-0" at us now though.

Fully expect that to change to "all you do is play long to Lukaku" instead, but fuck it.

Naughty by Rashford there. Could've been off for that.

If I jinx it, I won't give a fuck.

It balances things out.

If this was 1-0 I'd have more faith but we've conceded two soft goals from hoof balls. 

Gomez would have been better at right back this game and Lovren needs to stop trying to challenge for every header with Lukaku and leaving a massive gap. 

If we somehow can break down a compact midfield and defence and get one we might be able to push on for a 2nd but unless we pull something special out the bag or score from a set piece can't see us getting back in. 

Think the ref has been a bit shite for both teams though.

Bailly really is fucking brilliant.

If Liverpool get one at any point while it's 2-0, it'll turn into a nervous period for us. Next goal is the big one.

The one on Milner he got booked for? Not for me, he only got him with his trailing shin, I wouldn't have been overly angry if he hadn't been booked at all.

United playing route one football.

Poor Trent, tbh, he's not had a good day against Rashford.

It's a 'you've seen them given' ones. I'd have been fuming if he'd gone - both at him and the ref. He's a little bit reckless in the tackle thus far.

Tbh, if you're playing against a team that press as high up the pitch as Liverpool and don't play direct, you're either Man City or not playing optimally.

I'm surprised Rashford hasn't at least been warned as he's done a few studs up tackles this game. Nothing noteworthy of saying he should have been red carded.

Man United's game plan of route one is working. Lovren having his usual big game nightmare, and Trent has been just awful. 

That being said, we've been terrible as a whole. Our midfield is doing nothing, which makes it impossible for our top three to do anything. 

Probably the worst 45 minutes of our season so far, barring that second half collapse at Sevilla.

He got booked between the two goals iirc.

I can kinda cut Lovren and Trent some slack. Lovren has a massive centre-forward playing on him  and Trent is 19 years old and his defending isn't his strong point. If Clyne was fit he'd be a much more solid defensive option against Rashford.

I don't think Liverpool have been bad, it's just United have set up in a boring but effective way. Because, well, that's what their manager does. Jose Mourinho is what Sam Allerdyce thinks he is.

I've maintained for a while that you need to have an attacking threat against sides like Liverpool and City. Wait to get beat by them and you will a lot of the time. We've lucked our way to a few Anfield draws by sitting back. You have to keep these sides honest at the back as well. Liverpool destroyed City when they went toe to toe. Not saying I want us doing that at the Etihad in a month, but we can't just sit in and hope they don't score.

Need to keep this 2 goal lead for as long as possible. If we don't make any mistakes at the back, there's always the chance to nick a 3rd. 

Surely only a matter of time before they score from one of these corners.

      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
    • By Lineker
      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

      The Premier League has announced a decision not have a title sponsor from season 2016/2017. The move reflects the organisation's desire to mirror major American sports leagues like the NBA and NFL in presenting a 'clean' brand. Having been sponsored by Barclays since 2004, in 2016 the competition will be known simply as 'The Premier League'. Predictions which will probably almost all turn out incorrect! Chelsea will win the league Man Utd second, Arsenal and City to squabble over third and fourth Rodgers to be sacked before the season ends Spurs to be better but ultimately fall short of the top four once again Bournemouth will perform well and survive. Watford will finish bottom of the pile with at least one managerial change mid-season. Norwich will scrape survival at the expense of an established top flight team. Sunderland fans buy flowers for Dick Advocaat's wife after he stays at club
