Arsenal have been impressive, looking like they might be threat to the top 6 now.

 

We all know what's happening at the weekend.

 

Their passing and movement have been really good. Unbelievable turnaround by Arteta.

Liverpool's next 10 Premier League games compared to Manchester United, Man City and Leicester

 

Here is every side in the title race's next 10 games in the league.


Man City fixtures

Feb 2: Burnley (A)

Feb 6: Liverpool (A)

Feb 13: Tottenham (H)

Feb 20: Arsenal (A)

Feb 27: West Ham (H)

March 6: Man United (H)

March 13: Fulham (A)

March 20: Wolves (H)

April 3: Leicester (A)

April 10: Leeds United (H)

City face four of the Big Six in five matches in what will be a tough run of games after Tuesday’s match against Burnley.

Should they beat Burnley, then City will go into these games flying,though, with Saturday’s victory over Sheffield United making it eight league wins in a row as they extended their lead at the top of the table.

Their next six games will no doubt be the toughest test of their form and, looking further ahead, matches against Leicester and Leeds at the start of April will not be easy.

Yet all of City’s Big Six opponents in this run of matches have shown weaknesses recently, and, if they can come through their next few games unscathed, then they would no doubt be favourites to reclaim the title.

 

Man United fixtures

Feb 02: Southampton (H)

Feb 06: Everton (H)

Feb 13: West Brom (A)

Feb 20: Newcastle United (H)

Feb 27: Chelsea (A)

March 6: Man City (A)

March 13: West Ham (H)

March 20: Crystal Palace (A)

April 3: Brighton (H)

April 10: Tottenham (A)

United’s success in this run of games depends on two things - whether they can improve their home form and record against the top six.

With their next two matches at Old Trafford and against teams challenging for Europe, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will need to improve upon having the 11th-best home record in the Premier League if they want to avoid disappointing results.

With matches against the likes of West Brom, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Brighton, there are plenty of winnable games in this run of fixtures for United, although last week’s loss to Sheffield United may have shaken their confidence a little.

 

Liverpool fixtures

Feb 03: Brighton (H)

Feb 06: Man City (H)

Feb 13: Leicester City (A)

Feb 20: Everton (H)

Feb 27: Sheffield United (A)

March 6: Fulham (H)

March 13: Wolves (A)

March 20: Chelsea (H)

April 3: Arsenal (A)

April 10: Aston Villa (H)

Jurgen Klopp’s side have regained their form in their last two matches, seeing off Tottenham and West Ham in what looked like two difficult games on paper.

Their next 10 games can essentially be divided into three sections, with a run of what appear to be winnable fixtures being book-ended by two sets of trickier matches.

The Reds will no doubt feel confident of beating Brighton, but the Seagulls have looked impressive recently and grabbed a point against Klopp’s side earlier in this season. They also come into the game off an impressive 1-0 win over Tottenham.

A match against an ominously in-form Man City is followed by a game against a Leicester City side hoping to get key players back from injury soon and then a Merseyside derby.

If Liverpool can get some good results from these matches, then they should be in a strong position for a more favourable run of games against the likes of Sheffield United and Fulham.
At the end of March and beginning of April, there is a run of three tricky games against Chelsea, Arsenal and Aston Villa, which could prove an important period should the Reds still be in title contention.

 

Leicester fixtures

Feb 3: Fulham (A)

Feb 7: Wolves (A)

Feb 13: Liverpool (H)

Feb 21: Aston Villa (A)

Feb 27: Arsenal (H)

March 6: Brighton (A)

March 13: Sheffield United (H)

March 20: Burnley (A)

April 3: Man City (H)

April 10: West Ham (A)

 

Leicester City’s run of games is arguably the most favourable in the top four, with three matches against the Big Six, all of which are at home.

The biggest question will be whether the Foxes can cope without key players Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi, who are both currently out injured.

If Leicester can bounce back from their defeat to Leeds at the weekend by beating Fulham and Wolves, they will be in a good position for a run of three games against Liverpool, Aston Villa and Arsenal.

Further winnable games against Brighton and Sheffield United follow before a tough game against Man City in early April.

I like the detail and taking the time to look into these. 

 

On paper looks like we have a reasonable run of matches. However as Leicester fans know we always lose the games we should win, and the harder games we tend to do well in. 

 

Our home form is poor this season, Villa, West Ham, Fulham, Leeds have all beaten us at home and comfortably so. They were all better than us on those nights. 

 

Before Leeds we were playing really well.

The man certainly provides a ton of entertainment value.  Thank you Arse for ponying up the ten million to pay for this (final?) season before he goes off the air  :thumbup:

Really can't see the contact off luis but he didn't protest much so he must have made some

Those ones where the player runs across the front are hard to spot but he almost certainly clipped him. Think the red card is harsh as it didn't look deliberate

That's a shit rule.  They are saying on BT that if he had deliberately gone for the ball and brought him down, it would have been a yellow. But an accidental clip is a red.

Letter of the law isn’t it?

Stupid in this case, odd how an accidental trip would have more of a punishment than if Luiz had cleaned him whilst attempting to get the ball.

Exactly - it is a bizarre rule
