You should be getting used to the Chelsea left overs, first Mou and now Tomori.
Like to think of the academy guys more like being locked up in a dark basement for years and finally escape into the free world.

Be free Fikayo, be free!
Lucas Piazon was close to developing Stockholm Syndrome ;)

Our academy guys seem to be doing alright to me.

Fik will be back in our squad next season.

Played off the park by Roma but won 2-0 thanks to some Ronaldo magic and a OG.
10 points seperate the top 7 but the next couple of weeks will possibly see a couple drop away

Roma played us off the park?

lol they were horrible. Crossing to Chiellini and accumulating low percentage long shots isn’t what I’d call playing off the park.

Coughed up a 3-0 lead to Torino, thankfully kayo didn't broadcast it (lol).
Napoli losing 2-1 to Genoa is probably worse though.

3 horse race between Milan, inter and Juve at this point.

Yeah, probably harsh but thought we were trash for long stints in the game. We seemed to get bogged down in the middle and couldn’t get much going whilst seemingly happy to sit on our lead.
In the second half we looked gassed and Roma started to find space through the lines with Miki looking dangerous but as you said their final ball was pretty ordinary all night.

Napoli have Juve and Atalanta as their next 2. Would think anything less than the maximum points would kill off their hopes.
Milan derby coming up in 2 weeks which should be fun if they are still the top 2

We played pragmatically. No point wasting energy when there’s a tight schedule and no point in risking exposing your defence when your leading and the other team isn’t threatening. Roma looked better once Dzeko came on but by then then we had an2 goal lead and defence had everything covered comfortably.

COPPA 2nd leg is between Atalanta and Napoli is a big match too, given how tight the top 8 is in the league.
