How can they have a soft fixture when they have to play everyone again?

Meh, The quality of the rest Premier League is still not as strong as many think.

The way they are travelling , it's unlikely but possible they don't lose another match for the rest of the league season

Plus their goal difference is almost practically another 3 points in itself

Deserved a point out of that.

Especially when you start Dan Burn as your central defender in a back 3.

Definitely deserved a point. Brighton had slightly more of the ball and more shots.

Brilliant header by Welbz. If he could stay fit for the rest of the season he would be like a free transfer that could push Brighton towards the European places.

Well, sure, but not really my point. They play the same teams as everyone else.

hows that going for Pep in the cl after a billion spent?

You are better than that mate. Klopp's been out of form lately as manager himself in the Premier League

And a few other EPL clubs have spent more than City and Pep in the last couple of years, so we need to stop that lazy narrative now that City and Pep are buying their way to the title again.

He has worked out the other clubs and managers and their formations and gameplan perfectly and does his homework.

Maybe if Klopp had the same level of preparation on his opponents instead of whinging about the schedule and making other excuses, Liverpool might be performing better lately

Hardly, he lost his whole midfieldt to covid for the Spurs game plus Van Dijk and had 10 of the senior squad out. Should have postponed the game really like other clubs have been doing and play it at the end of the season with a proper squad.

The only below par performance is the Leicester game realistically.

Peps spent a billion euros since he joined. He is a great manager but is definitely buying his way to success.

Believe what you want friend, by the time he retires as manager, Pep will be almost universally regarded as the GOAT Gaffer.

It's up to other clubs and managers to try get the most out of their resources and players as Pep has at Citeh.

Investing in proper facilities and youth academy is a big reason why they are now the most powerful club in England (and have been for some time now)

4th separate time Pep has got City to 10+ consecutive league wins in his 5.5 year tenure at City.

Best part of our fixture is that out of the top 10 we've played everyone bar West Ham and Wolves away from home already.

So our biggest games over the rest of the season should all be home ones.

How can he be the GOAT when he has had 8.5 seasons at Bayern and City and no CL?
