    Both races are toast: title and relegation. Was just thinking this morning that the last month of the season will be who goes to champions league, who plays in Europa and who misses out. Going to make for a boring final stretch.

    Spurs have been a tough matchup for City the past few years and today they didn't have a sniff. 1. City's real good and is gonna be champs. 2. Mourinho has reached his sell-by date at Tottenham just about right on schedule.

    I think everyone on Twitter has made the “maybe Alisson’s aim isn’t true” joke.

    As much as you have to love Kane and Son, Spurs making the Big Cup final was not a reflection of the abilities of the team. And Mou’s magic has diminished more at each stop.

    Lloris is getting old. The Alderweirweld-Vertonghen duo is gone. At every stop Mourinho alienates and ruins a vital player. At Spurs it was Dele Alli.

    Tim Howard doesn’t drop an easy free kick, Porto never beats United, wins the Big Cup and spawns the legend of Mou. So I blame America.

    Arsenal showing why they’re midtable. Just when you think the game is in hand ...

    Also a Villain here. I feel like if Grealish wanted to leave, he would have when they were relegated, or when they lost the playoff final to Fulham or after last year. That said, there's nothing stopping someone from writing a huge check, but I'd figure that at present, the going rate for him in the transfer market is north of $75 million.

    Sigh, you're right, but what a sweet pass - or errant shot - from Smith-Rowe to set up that third goal by Aubameyang

    An absolute masterclass by M’Bappe today vs Barca.

    I haven't heard much about West Ham's turnaround ... from 5 points clear of the drop in 2020 to sitting in a Europa spot after 24 matches.

    Barca looked out classed in the second half. Their only legit chance came when the keeper for PSG left his goal exposed.
