The Foxes' stunning performance and 9-0 scoreline at St Mary's sets a high benchmark for this round of fixtures with a quarter of the season complete. That win has pushed them to 2nd in the table.
Manchester City will return to 2nd place if they beat Aston Villa in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.
At 3 pm, aside from Brighton vs Everton, there are only two other games: Watford vs Bournemouth and West Ham Utd vs Sheffield Utd, with Chelsea traveling to Burnley for the 5:30 game.

Meanwhile, over the road, our injury jinx and biased treatment by officials continues.
When will it turn? Surely it has to cos everything goes in cycles... doesn't it?

Steve @17 ha! Ok sorry. Sarcasm is hard to detect on the interwebs after all. Especially you Brits, who've turned it into an art form. (I don't even know if you're British!)

Bastards must be saving themselves for next Sunday.

It's not Video Assistant Referee as we have all been duped into believing.
It's really Vital Anfield Reassurance

Liverpool (1st) â€“ 140 penalties â€“ The Reds lead the way, having been awarded 140 penalties in the last 24 years ( October 2016).
You don't need me to remind you since the premier league began Man Utd was winning title after tile, not Liverpool.
You can call it hatred, I just want to see a league with no Bias, and a level playing field. History shows it ain't gonna happen.
29 Posted 27/10/2019 at 19:45:38
I thought we were discussing Liverpool's penalty per game this year, or the past 3-4 at most. Not full history. So if that's what you meant, apologies.

I would disagree though over your description of their midfield as 'very very good'. It is made up of very average players who do what they are asked to do and do it well. That's all. When they're playing top opposition or things aren't going to plan (not that that occurs too often unfortunately) Klopp prefers to miss the midfield out and go long. Tonight was an example.

My point being it was Man Utd winning title after title.
I just want a level playing field and no Bias. Clattenburg derby springs to mind.

Apparently it was OK to instead use Anal Field and Mordor plus gobshites and the RS when referring to our neighbours. I played along with such silly mandates and wore Blue tinted glasses and fervently joined others singing about a Royal Blue Mersey and our 'Istry". at the same time spouting derogatory rubbish about their players and ridiculous pacts with the devil. Meanwhile they have gone on to the kind of success that we Evertonians can only dream about. Our travails over recent years has brought me full circle back to my original vilified comparison of the two clubs. I make no apology for saying the gobshites fully deserve their success.
When their club was in its darkest hour they fought for it with mass demos through the city centre and raised funds with protest CDs, T shirts and banners plus swamping radio talkback shows and columns of letters to newspapers and every other possible avenues to make their views known.
I consider my beloved Everton to be in its own darkest hour yet apart from posts to ToffeeWeb I do not see or hear the least whimper of complaint.

In the Premier league/Sky era, Everton have faded. To the masses Everton may aswell be Sheff Utd, WBA, Burnley etc. Our sucesses were years ago, never played CL football and home stadium is laughable. Everton are not attractive and don't have the same pulling power of any of the Top 6. Leicester are the latest to overtake us.
