Premier League football (ps: It's not called the 'Premiership' — that's rugby!) returns this weekend but there's still a long wait until Everton host West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.
The raft of fixtures kicks off early on Saturday with a chance for Spurs to get back to winning ways against Liverpool at Wembley.
Newcastle Utd vs Arsenal may be one to watch at 3 pm on Saturday, with Watford looking to extend their 100% record so far by turning over Manchester Utd at Vicarage Road in the televised tea-time game.

Meanwhile, Ross Barkley is on as sub for Chelsea. Maybe I'll switch over and watch that now.

I just wonder if and when Barkley will have a game at Chelsea where he really makes an impact and shows he is at the level of his squad mates.

Meanwhile, Chelsea score another two, Willian's a scorcher, with the ball coming to him behind Barkley off a deflection. Had that ball gone to Barkley, however, (he was right alongside Willian), I couldn't see him doing what Willian just did. Not in a month of Sundays.
He just seems to lack any confidence or drive. But maybe playing to instructions — take no risks, play well within yourself...

Very, very difficult to make up a 25-point deficit in one season against a far superior squad.

I wonder how many chances he will get. The safety first, avoid mistakes, tidy game is one way to slowly build confidence. I'd say it would probably work for Rodwell at Blackburn, but Chelsea have so many other options I cannot see them allowing anyone that type of time to settle in.

Deeny really should've given Watford the lead there, put his shot too close to De Gea, allowing him to pull off a good reaction save.

Smalling makes it 2-0. Watford bubble bursts.

It's like Utd had a white strip and when it was Fellaini's turn to take it home for washing, his mam put it in the washing machine with a red towel.

Man City will have too much for them. They have no squad like City's. Relax. Plus, we will get four points off them this season, as long as we get the new men fit and they don't bring their own ref.

Exactly what we need.

1. Van Dijk played a quick free-kick back to Alison, who got himself into a bit of bother so picked the ball up as if it had simply been kicked to him to take the free kick. The referee ignored it, the commentators laughed and referred to it as “pragmatic refereeing”.
2. Liverpool were planning to bring on Henderson for Keite, and had indicated so to the 4th official, who lit his board accordingly. Firminho went down with his scratched eye, Klopp asked the 4th official to change his board, the 4th official refused on the grounds that Klopp had already made his decision. Discussion went on between them for several minutes, with the 4th official standing his ground. Next thing, Firminho is going off to be replaced by Shaqiri and the debate was forgotten about.
Am I bitter and paranoid, or do they just always get their own way?

BTW, does anyone else agree that Man City documentary that everyone is raving about is as boring as fuck?
