    Yea I think it will finish:

    Man City
    Arsenal
    Man Utd
    Liverpool
    Spurs
    Leicester
    Agree with that.

    No way is Alex Manninger their keeper, I remember him playing for Arsenal around the time half the posters here were born ffs. Thought he retired years ago

    Bloke had the most 90s haircut of any PL footballer during that era.

    Still think Leicester will drop off when they get a few injuries and their lack of depth gets exposed, like Southampton last year. No idea who'll do it out of Spurs, Liverpool and United as we're all ****e and keep dropping points to bottom half fodder

    Leicester are 3/1 with the bookies now. Win tonight and they'll probably be 5/2, which is around a 30% chance at top four. I think they've got a serious chance now.

    I think if Leicester keep it up, then United are in the most relative trouble compared to right now; Liverpool and Spurs both seem more likely than United to go on a proper run of form and get a proper points tally. United seem likely to meander along and scrape into the top four, but they won't be able to do that if Leicester keep it up, and Liverpool/Spurs go on a mad 1.

    Just listening to Klopp's post-match conference.

    I've got all the time in the world for this guy. So well spoken and you can tell how passionate he is. Also takes no nonsense from some of the journalists with their stupid questions.

    Benteke's main problem is his finishing, rather than anything to do with the set up. And I'm not comparing him to Mario, because Mario's always been a ****e finisher whilst Benteke has at least been good before, but that was Mario's problem last season too in a system that wasn't identical, but comparable.
    Work ethic is an issue for him, too.

    We saw that Origi's enterprise and enthusiasm could help the team yesterday. Indeed, I think there's definitely an argument that strikers create their own luck, and Origi did that with the deflection by picking himself up, dusting himself off and going for the jugular.

    Benteke had the least touches and the lowest passing accuracy of any of the starting eleven.

    Ignore that.. didn't realise Lacazette signed a new contract in August 2015.

    So do we try and adapt Benteke or accept he might not fit Klopp's preferred style and sell?

    Rodgers did the same to Carroll despite being an expensive player.

    Leicester are well ahead of where Southampton were last year. If they win today then they have 7/9 from fixtures that at the start of the season were very tough. With only City and Arsenal looking able to get 75+ at the moment I'll be fascinated to see if Leicester have enough in them to keep contending. They'll certainly building a cushion atm.

    You've got to try and implement him somehow, and I think Klopp will. That said, I think Klopp will have a ruthless streak if he deems a player to be surplus to requirements. Time will tell, but we've seen - United at Old Trafford, and the Bordeaux at home match - how Benteke can create moments of inspiration from nothing.

    Now I'm a realist. Saying Liverpool will challenge Chelsea is plain stupid when you consider whats been going on the last few seasons.

    I don't think he can ever be Klopp's first choice striker. Will always be the plan B imo.

    Mignolet on the brink of penning that contract extension, apparently.

    Poor timing...

    Surely we can't be that dumb?

    Poor Bogdan.

    Issue is if Bogdan was given an extended run, given that he's not top tier, we'd undoubtedly see traits in his game we were unhappy with and he could improve on.

    Huge mistake on Klopp's part imo. Nothing else has been questioned but this will massively.
