They have 3 games in a week starting tomorrow night, all at home. Brighton, Palace, Villa. Extremely likely to be 9 points. Decent chance they're on top of the table next week.Is anyone else way more worried about City than Liverpool? Im surprisingly not worried one bit about Liverpool. I don’t think they’ve got much this season.
I actually think this is a thing that was sorely missing.Great to be on top, but now the real pressure begins. Can the players handle it.
Our problems remain the same, I agree. But never would I have thought to see us in 1st place againTop of the league!!
But the reality is that we are still the third best team in the league at the moment and we need to improve by a lot to stay top. Passing. Defending (set pieces). Finishing. Fitness. Tempo. Breaking up low block teams. But overall, being top is the best place to be while still improving on these things.
City look shit hot these last few games and can only see Grealish & co maybe giving them any problems in next few weeksAs long as 2 of 3 front 3 goes crazy running at Liverpool, we can beat them and open up a 6 points lead. I think it will shut the pundits who pick City and Pools who will finish above us.
My way of saying go for the win there (with quick counters) constantly exploiting their space behind fullbacks. Or not play with your mind on 1 point.I'd only advocate for this if we're 1-0 down in the 80th minute.
We still need to go into this match cool, composed and not with the mindset to throw everything at them from the get-go. Liverpool are still a dangerous team and you can easily play into their hands with such a mindset.
That’s because bar Liverpool, the team that tops the league on GW 18 is the one that wins. So it’s now very important to win the next games as much as possible. And yes it’s hard for us. But the lads have to believe.We last topped the Premier League two years and two months ago in August 2018.. but it has been a much longer wait since we last topped the table after New Year's Day in a season... The first time since we last won the title in 2013..
