Re: Tonight's football 16-Dec-2020

Southampton in third place only getting a draw at Arsenal when we won shows game results can be a bit random hence City beating us 5-0 is not relevant in the context of West brom drawing with them, or something like that. As Sean says, take each game at a time.

I thought it was a fair comment even if it did lead to the sending off it could have gone pearshaped. It was a good defensive performance but luck was on our side for a change. Just 3 points now to pass the Derby benchmark.
