West Ham shoulda scored after 2 minutes, a great ball in to Bowen who should have beaten the keeper... but didn't.
Nikola Vlasic starts for the Hammers.
I hope Norwich score because they havent scored or won in their last five premiership games and we love to let teams break their ducks dont we.
Not Premier League, but just switched on the League Cup (Liverpool v Arsenal).
Just in the few minutes I've been watching, both defences are so high up the pitch, the entire 20 outfield players are in a space within yards either side of the centre circle.
Not a sending off for me, the RS player was milking it. The Arsenal player was watching the ball overhead and caught the RS player. Looked worse than it was. A booking. Ref wetting his shorts , too quick to give the red card .
Arsenal down to ten men. Not a difficult decision for Michael Oliver to make. Dangerous play by Xhaka on Jota. Took him clean out on the edge of the penalty area.
Tony, Xhaka is a liability for Arsenal. He might have been watching the ball, but I'm sure he could see Jota out the corner of his eye. Was the red for dangerous play, or being the last man?
Yes, Rob, Im surprised they havent binned him before now. Thats what I was thinking, a last man red. But Jota still had some work to do to with that long high ball. The other way around and Im not sure VVD would have been red carded.
Not a cat in hells chance!
Arsenal a bit deeper now!!
Red all day for me if your first contact is on the players abdomen / chest. It wasn't just the ball watching, the defender got caught the wrong side.
But probably because he was ball watching in the first place and ended up being reactive rather than proactive.
So the great RS play against ten men for well over an hour, including the obligatory five minutes added on time, and don't even have a single shot on target. Take salad and Mane out of that team and maybe they're not the greatest many think.
Leeds don't look likely to be going down and have moved 3 points ahead of Everton following their win at West Ham - although Hammers should have sneaked a point in the final action. I think it's perm any 3 from Burnley, Watford, Norwich, Newcastle, Brentford and unfortunately Everton.
