    I've really been looking forward to Burnley v Everton.

    First time those words have ever been used in that order.

    If City get 21 points out of the next 10 games they'll break Chelsea's record of 95 pts. Doable?

    Win 7 out of 10? I'd be surprised if they don't do it.

    Just 10 points separate Burnley in 7th place from Swansea in the relegation zone(17th). That potentially gives us lot of 6 pointers. Hopefully, it results in exciting games.

    Will this City team hold up in greatest ever discussions if they don't break that record? Almost has me hoping Chelsea get at least a point. But considering they average 2.68 ppg, they'll end up breaking the record anyways.

    Lol!
    More than doable. I expect them to finish on circa 100.

    Spurs and Liverpool will pick up wins.
    There's really no room for error.

    Crisis talk at Arsenal after few bad results sounds like the perfect time for Arsenal do start their annual "resurgence" and finish strongly, and giving Wenger another contract extension.

    As far as the league is concerned, yes.
    A team finishing with about 100 point is beyond belief.

    To be totally honest don't give a s** about the blue wan kers next door. I feel we should be more concerned with next season's challenge and have a strong finish to this one bare minimum....

    Even if Chelsea lose tomorrow and get a -5(6, due to their goal average) point gap to the 4th, their chase for a Champions League spot is far from over, since those ahead will probably all be still in contention for the Champions League, while Chelsea being probably dumped and that might help them.

    Which is why I was wondering about a hypothetical scenario in which City don't break the points record.

    Chances are City wins the league against us at the Etihad or if we lose against Liverpool we give City a Guard of Honor before the match.

    You'd hope the humiliation would inspire our club but I'm not convinced.

    That's supposing they beat Stoke and Everton away, right? What if we beat Palace and Swansea, but draw to Liverpool?

    Isn't that a very offensive lineup from Everton to play Burnley away?

    Has Rooney become a bench player at Everton?
    Seems a while since I've seen him in the starting XI.

    He was in it last week. Certainly not a nailed on starter anymore though.

    I think he started their last three, so, no.

    I think that is how they usually line up these days. If they win, they have the same points as Burnley.

    A few decent games this weekend.

    Hopefully Burnley can set the right tone beating Everton, I'm going 1-1 for this though.

    Leicester will probably win at home, 2-1.

    Spurs will annihilate Huddersfield, 4-1.

    We'll have too much firepower for a Shelvey-less Newcastle, 3-0 or 4-1.

    Brighton could well take points off a despondent Arse. 2-2.

    City will continue their PL domination with a 2-0 win over Chelsea.

    I'd love to tip Palace to take something off of United but don't see it despite United struggling to get any fluidity into their game. United will win, 0-2.

    I think Soton/Stoke & Leicester/Bournemouth have the potential to be good games. I'll probably flip between those two and the Swansea/West Ham game.

    As for Lazio-Juve, I hope it lives up to the hype if you do tune in!

    How do you think you'll do considering City have had 12 days rest since their last game?

    Insanely selfish from Walcott. I'd be fuming if I were Davies.

    Think he is just trying to blank out that City won a trophy last weekend.

    It was indeed. It has to be him or Butland as England's No 1 goalkeeper.
