Apart from Everton is was a good week for English clubs. Not the hardest tests so far but everyone did ok.

Liverpool are going to regret not spending on their defence.

Bournemouth V. Brighton tonight. Doesn't even sound like a premier league game.

Nobody gonna mention the Arsenal fans terrified of a bit of atmosphere last night?
Doesn't sound like anything particularly unusual happened, aside from the extra fans getting in, yet there are more than a handful suggesting the game should've been abandoned or postponed.

Still can't get my head round Friday night matches. Sky's new EFL deal from 2019 means games every day, on telly or available to stream. All of them. Not sure that's healthy tbh.

I did wonder what happened yesterday.

They were very vocal heading through town and it reads as if they behaved very well although they blocked the roads.

Did it only kick off as they couldn't get in?

Arsenal fans didn't want to go, why not let sell more tickets to them and keep the! In their own section?

Arsenal and their fans have to be criticised for selling tickets to anyone.

20,000 fans and the atmosphere sounded good from the little bit I watched.

From what I gather, there wasn't much bother at all, and the little there was happened as Köln fans who'd got into the home sections tried to climb into the away section but were stopped by stewards.

I think I heard earlier there had been 5 arrests. Not bad for supposed carnage. Most of the footage I've seen shows stands full of Köln fans singing and dancing with the odd miserable-looking Arsenal fan dotted throughout.

I totally understand if they'd been aggressive or starting up trouble, but it seems they were just a large number who wanted to enjoy the match.

Watching MOTD now.

Man City the first Premier League club to score 5 or more goals in 3 consecutive games. It should have been a lot more than 5 today. Palace look terrible, but the gulf between the top teams and the rest is getting even bigger.

Liverpool game looked good fun. They are still a shambles at the back. Mingolet looks good for saving a penalty, but he flapped at everything in the highlights.

I think the top 3 now will be the top 3 at the end. What order I'm not too sure yet.

Have to agree with Kerr ^^ Liverpool's defence is terrible. I think the title fight will be between the two Manchester clubs.

Not had a chance to see much football again this weekend. I'll catch up a bit later tonight.

Another impressive result for Man City. Will they manage to keep it up this year?

Everton and Leicester still hanging around at the bottom. What is wrong?

Man Utd still holding on at the top. Deserved, or are they only there as they've not played anyone decent yet?

Bloody hell! Just got back from Goodison.

Lots of talent, all playing in the wrong positions and desperately hoofing the ball.

Its Roberto Martinez all over again. I think Koemans days must surely be numbered - he can't keep blaming bad luck + the players...

1-1, solid result. Liverpool may be all over the shop at the back, but they've got a lot of firepower upfront. Restricting them to half-chances for the most part, and needing a worldie to breach the defences of a team written off as relegation fodder by most is not too shabby

I was so happy with the result. Can't wait for work tomorrow because the two Liverpool fans said we would get beat 4-1
