CHO and Ampadu once again showing they are ready. Use them or lose them Sarri.
Won’t happen any time soon as Sarri has his favourites, but Ampadu instead of Jorginho and CHO over Willian would make things a lot more dynamic and exciting (although probably a few more mistakes, worth it for the end product). The first team just becomes complacent knowing they’re picked every week so it’d be nice to get some pressure on them to get their arse into gear. Never seen any of the energy at both ends of the pitch that Ampadu brought last night, from Jorginho. Same for CHO.. him and Hazard worked perfectly last night as there was more unpredictablility going forward and Hazard almost took a backseat at times.

CHO should get a good run at it with Pedro, Giroud and Willian injured, if he doesnt start against Spurs I'll be pretty pissed. Was a great display by him and Sarri needs to play him more.

Ampadu should also get more time going forward with Fab and Cahill leaving and RLC injured, his adaptability will be quite handy.

Sad to hear able RLCs back injury flairing up again, its been a long standing problem(excuse the pun) and by the sounds of things he'll be out for a while.

Good to see Morata finish a couple of chances. He doesn't seem happy though.

Good to get the win. Actually played quite a strong team which is surprising given the recent run of fixtures.

We went in a lot stronger than I thought we would. Was a pretty easy run out in the end, bit still.gave a few.fringe players a run out.

Why didn’t Leicester go at least near full-strength? It’s not like they are in a race for top four or in any threat of relegation. Ridiculous decision by Puel not to have Vardy on the bench or to bring on Ricardo. I’d be livid with that

Newport County, Oldham Athletic and Barnet, wow what a night, shame none of it was televised here in Australia.

Some pretty decent PL & championship teams knocked out by lower division clubs. Will make for a more interesting FA Cup before it’s inevitably won by depth of a top 4 club. Leicester the biggest casualty so far, Fulham showing Ranieri has a lot of work to do. They have been the most disappointing team so far this season in my opinion

My query did pre-date the title tbf
Furry muff. I had a feeling it might have changed. FWIW I had no problem finding streams for games on the weekend but it's still pretty bloody disappointing not to have proper coverage here.

I was very surprised at what a strong team you put out. I guess you are gonna rest everyone x2 against Burton.

Milner with his own Stevie G moment there. Good finish from Jiminez but boy do Wolves suck the life out of games they're expected to win.
