Spurs score in injury time to nab 1-0 win and stay top 3.

Pogba benched again. Oh man I hope United win just for the sake of drama and Mourinho ego boosting

Southampton pull it out, two goals from Ings and a late break from Long to Austin for the third - questions to be asked of Leno’s positioning there to say the least.

Clyne in at RB for Liverpool with Milner on a muscle injury, both Keïta and Fabinho join Wijnaldum in midfield.

United going 3-5-2 with only Lingard, Rashford, and Lukaku as remotely attacking players.

Just saw Marcos Alonso’s pullback late against Brighton. Lucky to have that only be a yellow, Brighton were through on the keeper otherwise

This game is hard core so far. ManU’s fullbacks need to push up if they want to get through the midfield. I’m really interested to see this Liverpool midfield combo - it’s their most talented trio, can they gel?

I genuinely have no idea what Mourinho’s thinking is. I mean, he’s forgotten more about the game than I’ll ever know. I just don’t understand why you’d sit back like this.

Mane goal in slow motion is a thing of beauty.

Bloody hell. Bit of a howler there. Good lord.

I think I prefer the Mané that can’t finish to the Mané that blows up every play by dribbling into trouble and losing the ball.

I see we’ve arrived at the ‘acceptance’ stage, aka Lovren and Clyne attempting 40 yarders

Edit: Van Dijk as well now

Liverpool need some magic in the final third. It's hard to get through all the bodies in the box.

It amazes me how much Herrera and Young can piss and moan to the referee and linesman every match and still not get a dissent yellow.

As an aside, I really hope Robertson and Wijnaldum standing over corners is short-lived

Shaqiri coming on, for Salah maybe? Guess not. Fabinho getting in on the 0.1% shots now

And Pogba freezes his arse off on the bench. Something's rotten in the state of Jose.
