I'm struggling with understanding why you think they can't replicate what they did last season despite only dropping 2 points almost a third of the way through the season.
Because it’s very hard to do it over the course of 38 matches. If they do, I’ll be happy to eat crow.

Quite possible that you don't continue this form, but you can't really say at this stage that you aren't as good at picking up results as last year, because in fact you're better.
Weirdly, I think we haven't played as well as we did last season yet I do believe we are better at digging out results than last season. That seems silly to say considering we only lost one game last season but it was the draws that hurt us. Seven in total whereas this season we have looked at drawing a few games but pulled it out of the fire to get maximum points. Hopefully we can keep that mentality up. A draw is as good as a loss when you're trying to beat City to the league title.

You can’t keep winning games with close shaves for a whole season. Remember last season when we actually went second ahead of City briefly in January, but by and large the wins were close shaves and some undeserved. It caught up with us though in the final third of the season as good fortune tends to even out. Similar thing could happen to Liverpool if they don’t find their extra gears

Absolutely. We flat out need to start playing better. We haven't been anywhere near our best all season yet somehow we are 10-1-0.

Liverpool are showing all the characteristics of a title winning team.

Winning ugly, winning late, never giving up. They're looking elite.

Ever the jod response. "We're the shittest team yet we keep winning". Followed soon by about how successful Liverpool are and how much better they are than Everton despite having the same amount of PL titles.

Everton lose tonight and Silva is surely gone.
Maybe for arsenals manager as well.
Leicesters 2015/16 season saw a defeat of Chelsea end mourinho's time at Chelsea with immediate effect. Maybe he will be kept to win the Europa league, I doubt we have to beat anybody of chelsea/hazards quality.

Bold starting line up against Palace by Frank, but I like it.

Great to see Kante and Emerson back in the line up. Alonso had to be dropped after an abysmal performance against Ajax.

Mount is starting despite concerns with his ankle. Congrats to Reece James for his first start in the Premier League.
