Do we want arsenal or Leicester to win. Seems more likely that arsenal catch us than we catch Leicester

We're 3 ahead of Arsenal with 2 games in hand, and 9 behind Leicester with 2 games in hand. We also have the 2 against Villa, and away to Arsenal coming up so really, we control what we do.

Woah woah woah, hold the phone.

Vardy didn't score and Leicester got thrashed at home?

That's so...surprising.

Expect them to drop off like last season now their squad is falling to bits.

I always expect them to drop off. They're a 1-man team and a dramatically overrated one at that.

Yep, that’s 12/18 months of his career gone and some of his pace.

They’ve got so many injuries.

They’re still a good team without vardy, but obviously a lot better with him. Kind of like every team with their best player, especially when they’re a striker.
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

They're not a good team without Vardy, as evidenced by their record over the last 30 games he didn't score in. Which is at borderline relegation quality.

And it's hardly every team; plenty of good teams survive just fine. Those teams don't have Iheanacho as their back-up striker. Bad teams struggle when 1 person is not performing. Good teams don't.

I fully expect this to end 0-0 as all the built up big games do and that will suit us.

I’d quite happily wish all teams from 2nd to 10th end up with Draws except us and city. Looking at the fixtures we’ll know exactly what we’re aiming by the time the international break arrives.

Turned it off.

Never seen a good game between these two teams.

I dunno like, by picking the games where Vardy hasn’t scored then you’re skewing your own sample to games where they likely haven’t played well.

Their PPG over the time he’s been there have been pretty much the same (1.5) whether or not he plays.

He’s also scored 12 of their 45 goals this season, so roughly a quarter, that’s not crazy reliance on your main striker for me.

It's a ridiculous argument.

"When your main goal threat doesn't score you don't pick up many points"

That's true for just about anyone.

When Kane doesn't score how are Spurs' results? Salah and Liverpool? Fernandes and United?

Half of Leicester's team walk into our no problem. They have consistently been in the top 4 for nearly two full seasons now, they are a good side.

Is this what Chelsea have been like under Tuchel?

Look solid defensively but not so much going forward. Quite boring really.
