Have to give Villa great credit, they looked dead and buried last year before the restart. Dean Smith has proved a lot of people wrong.

Barkley may well turn out to be a really clever signing from them, an undoubted talent.

Leeds had way more energy in the middle 3rd. 3-0 was a fair reflection of the game.

Yeah Leeds had Villa's number from early doors and were deserving winners. Very impressive. They created so many one on one or two v one situations in the wide areas.

That VAR check just now in the Brighton Spurs game. The ref didn't give the foul before the goal because he said the Brighton player got the ball first.
Yet last week Fabinho got the ball first and VAR gave it as a foul.

The ref has made a balls of that IMO. It was quite clearly a foul. VAR gave him a chance to put it right but after looking at it again, he thought he got it right!

it wasn't 'quite clear' it was a foul, it's a subjective decision, I didn't think it was a foul, the ref didn't think it was a foul but you did. Not everyone's going to agree. I didn't think it was a penalty but the ref did. Var isn't black and white regarding fouls.

2 poor decisions  by the ref and Var, the Kane penalty was never in a million years a penalty.

Spurs up to 2nd. Played poor enough tonight, but if they can get Kane, Son and Bale all firing together, they could well be a genuine contender for the league.

But when the ref is called over to the monitor, it means that the VAR has a serious question with the ref's original decision.

Of course it's still quite early stages, but the table is rightly congested this year.

Man City currently 10th, but win their game in hand and they go joint 2nd.

If United had won yesterday and played/won their game in hand, they be joint 3rd - instead they're 15th and Ole under severe pressure.

Very funny that Liverpool are top of the league yet have conceded more goals than anyone else. Obviously exacerbated by one game, but still clearly have problems in defence and could well be a very open league this year.
