Wise pundits won't be fooled by Pep's flops; SPORT ON TV.

Live football Sky Premier League, 5.30pm KNEE-JERK reactions seem to have become jerkier than ever this season with teams being labelled crisis clubs and players written off as flops after a tiny sample of games, writes James Milton.

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku and Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette have had plenty of brickbats hurled at them yet both could finish up as top scorers for their clubs.

And Alvaro Morata is just one goal behind Eden Hazard in the Chelsea scoring charts, despite injuries, yet some people still seem to think the Spaniard isn't fit to lace the boots of former Blues strikers Robert Fleck, Chris Sutton and Paul Furlong.

Mind you, sometimes the knee-jerk reaction is the only rational response so I'm happy to write off Manchester City and Pep Guardiola after their 3-0 defeat at Liverpool in the Champions League.

Yes, Pep's men can seal the Premier League title with six games to spare if they beat Manchester United but that's just papering over the cracks.
