How long will Leicester keep Rodgers before a bigger club comes calling? I thought they would be top 6 before the season started but they have a good chance of finishing top 4.

Players going mad celebrating, then VAR disallows the goal. Man, they look stupid when that happens.

I thought the VAR sanctioned  decision to award the penalty to Liverpool was way out of order. The theory was that Mane got his foot ahead of the Spurs defender  therefore  he had priority right before he recieved a whack on his leg. But after reviewing all the angles, it was clear that Mane tripped or was was attemping to trip the Spurs defender in his attempt to get his foot into the mix. It should have been a free out. How on earth  it can be a penalty when the defender is in the process of striking the ball and the attecking player sticks his foot in and trips him up, defies justice and the laws.

Apparently nothing wrong with the penalty.

I think, as the rules stand, this is definitely a penalty (because technically the defender kicked the attacker's leg), however, this is one of those cases that make you wonder about the rule.  Mane cleverly won the penalty by deliberately sticking his leg between the defender's kicking foot and the ball.   Reminds me of basketball: if you establish position before the opponent, and there is contact, you win the free, regardless of context.   

Also reminds me of a very different penalty award in a WC game some years ago between Italy and Australia.  Aussie defender had his leg out after a sliding tackle, Italian attacker saw the leg remaining outstretched and ran into it without attempting to avoid it.  Clear penalty by the rules, but more a case of a smart attacker taking advantage rather than a defender actually fouling.

Mane gets his foot between defender and ball. Before he can take a touch he is kicked on the calf. Mane does not initiate the contact so how you can say he tried to trip him?

Didnít Spurs get the exact same penalty two seasons ago when Kane moved in front of Van Dijk as he was in the process of kicking the ball? It was in injury time after Salahís wonder goal put Liverpool 2-1 up.

These days, itís a penalty. Intentions donít come into it.

Liverpool biased opinions have little or no objective value.

Live and in the first replay it looks a typical penalty, smart agressive attacking play but on the further replays 3 and 4, it looks that Mane sticks the legs in and  trips him up. 
I could sense some doubt from Andy Gray on Bein sports  but (unusually) he wasn't sure of his ground.

Not quite premier league but Michael Oíneill leaving ni. Big news. Hard to see them getting as capable a manager again.

Risky enough move,. They are bottom of the Championship. Financially a good move, doubles his wages from what he was on with NI. He's staying as Northern Ireland manager for final 2 Qualifiers.

Chris Coleman went from  being a good International manager to being Relegated to League 1 with Sunderland. Though it was maybe more down to Bale that he had success.

Can't really see t that much risk in doubling your wages on a 4 year contract?
