Attacking juggernaut WBA up 1-0 on Wolves after a very iffy penalty (iffy because I don’t think he was in the box)

West Brom have been the better side

Wolves are badly off their form of the last couple of years

I can't imagine how stressful it must be to manage a lower mid-table team. Any combination of a short run of poor play, or a couple of injuries, or congested fixtures without the deep bench for cup games, can lead to a death spiral.
Playing every game for survival must just be mentally draining.

The turf here looks bad, like slip on your ass and twist an ankle bad.

Maupay wasted a great ball looking for contact and going down way too easily.

But makes up for it. Beautifully worked goal by Brighton. Maupay had the whole goal open for the tap in.

My phone autocorrected tap in to Tosun. I wish.

Leeds really are an ABA team. Their idea of defending is to concede to get the ball back.

That was, start to finish, a poised & controlled win by Brighton. Very well done.

Brighton don't half make it hard on themselves. Big win, but life is so much easier when you can score two goals.

A reckless, late, and high tackle on a Chelsea player. It was about as obvious a red as you can get, and there was little argument from him or his teammates. A shame because he was having a very good game before that.
Ugh. Sounds like a foul that will get a few game suspension to follow.

that’s twice in the past couple minutes that Pulisic has released the counter smoothly after making several slick touches.

If Harry Kane improvised that finish it’d be talked about for months. My goodness
Lol what evidence do you have that it won't be talked about for months.

Spurs look like they've scored enough goals to avoid dropping points at the death. Yay.

Watching the /r/soccer match thread, apparently Martin Tyler has been heavy breathing on the mic since the first whistle. People are going nuts. Thank heavens for Peacock!

His heavy breathing mixed with little chuckles under his breath are really starting to grate the ears...

Yeah the second one was pretty comical... Rashford a yard offside not 10 feet from the linesman and he keeps the flag down... at some point, obvious is obvious

Liverpool need to find way to turn possession into chances
grrrr...this is setting up like all their other disappointments so far this season. The thing that Jota brought to the front 3 was a different cutting edge that varied up the attack so effectively. Pool need a spark here.

It's starting to look a lot like hard work for Liverpool. They need a bit of magic frrom Mane or Salah, or Firmino to find his shooting boots. It's all got a bit pedestrian.

If you have an AMEX card, they are running a 3 month promotion for a $5 bill credit for Peacock. You have to add the deal to your card before signing up.

Who can Liverpool bring on? Utd have executed their game plan, happy to take a point. Liverpool really lacking some quality in the final third.
