Definitely picked Chelsea to high. They will be lucky to be 7th. Will Mou be back by Boxing Day?

Overreaction: Chelsea over Man U not looking like a smart pick by the people.

Despite allowing 4 goals, Norwich didn't do too bad. Put them over Chelsea imo.

I am not so down on Chelsea after watching that game. They did not take their chances and they were unfortunate with a few of the goals they gave up. Plus it is a long season. But I only picked them 5th so I didn't have very high expectations for them to begin with.

BOW DOWN TO ME!!!!!!

Until next Saturday, that is.

Also, new this year in the EPL, the tiebreaker after goal differential and goals scored is the points in head-to-head results, then away goals in head-to-head results.

I guess they really do not want to schedule those neutral site matches. Has there ever been one?
