Also nice assist from Azpilicueta, who some Chelsea supporters still claims doesn't cross well enough, to play RWB.

Almost managed to stay up with a hopeless Hull last season. Guy is clearly a good manager, good start with Watford so far.

There are a lot of normal plays that aren't even fouls that end up with bigger consequences than what happened today, should those be punished as well considering the consequence?

It reminds of the game between Hungary vs Portugal where the Hungary players were hunting legs for the entire match but the ref only punished a foul (with a red card) because the elbow opened a gash on Pepe eyebrow. The player deliberately elbowed Pepe but the ref went to look at Pepe's head and only after that he decided what was the punishment. This is baffling to me to be quite honest.

Yes if it was just a scratch it wouldn't have been a red card, a foul but not a red. Refs aren't going to tolerate violent behaviour, ref was close saw it was boot to head contact.

No one is saying an injury requires disciplinary action, first there has to be a foul.

I think it's natural for the referee to evaluate the consequence of the action before giving or not giving a card, refs might be more sensitive to head injuries (naturally).

If Mané had got the ball then hit Ederson at worst it would have been a yellow. Mané was never going to get the ball due to Edersons position and thats with jumping to try get extra length. If he hits Ederson without studs showing and not in the head its a yellow, as it would have been no different than a defender coming in late such as Otamendi on Salah. Full pace, studs and late is often a red card offence.

Even 10 games is early. City won the first 10 games last year and look where they ended up. To me the title race discussion only makes sense after the Christmas games.

Even at the start there were noticeably empty seats during throw ins, but yeah, I'm sure the empty seats are merely people getting in from the rain. It was just a humorous image.

I bet if Arsenal were losing everyone would still be in their seats eager to boo at the halftime whistle, though.

Yeah Everton desperately need Bolasie. The attack just can't create concerted pressure against top sides and they're confident we won't break them because of a lack of pace.

The defence isn't up to snuff when Williams is out of from and obviously we're a worse side without Coleman.

We're a safe bet for top 10 though lol.

I hope.

Six Prem games in is where you can usually get the first glimpse of who are the title candidates. If you look at the teams and not just the score you can usually see where they stand and you can also see how they deal with mid week games. End of December is where that usually gets tested.
