      I still think this is a two horse race as Spurs will drop more points along the way with away trips to ourselves, Chelsea and City along with home games to both Arsenal and United.

      We need to in my opinion to stretch our lead over City to 6 or 7 points over January/February. They have Carabao cup games and tricky fixtures away to Newcastle and at home to both Arsenal and Chelsea.



      How is an away match against Newcastle tricky??

      Ultimately, we were 7 points clear. If we don’t win the league this season then we’d have had to of seriously fu**ed up a great position to be in. We were going to lose sooner or later, I’d rather that defeat be a narrow one to a team like City than to the likes of Palace, where it really can hit the morale of the team.

      The cool thing is...we can still take another loss and be 1st place by a point. Our good start enabled us to to have a hiccup here or there and honestly, with this team...there really shouldn't be too many hiccups. And City are still under pressure because they know every single point dropped, just gives us more leverage.

      They will also be aware of just how close it came to being a different situation after the first half. How we didn’t score was the worst luck possible - Mane hitting the post, the line clearance and the ball not falling right for Salah. It’s not like they’ve hammered us 5-0 again. I think if we had taken the lead then we’d have won.

      I think we are a different team, mentality wise. We're going to do it. We made them sh*t their pants in the last 10 minutes at their home ground. That says a lot.

      WE'RE STILL TOP,  WE WILL.STAY TOP,

      City will drop further points, why ?

      Cos they are chasing,  every match they HAVE to win, THAT'S EVERY SINGLE MATCH, just to hang on to our arses,

      We ourselves have 3 high end games left against rivals two at home and one away at a mediocre Manure,  no reason we can't get 9 out of 9 from them,

      As for the rest, well, we were unbeaten until Thursday,  HOW ?

      We took one game, one opponent at a time and dealt with them accordingly,  kept our feet on the ground,  had no complacency,  we played aggressive football when it suited,  and a controlled measured style when required,  have only conceded 9 times in 21 matches,

      We have 17 league games to go, and all we need to do is the same and its done.

      NO REASON  WHATSOEVER,
      THAT WE WON'T  !!

      ITS COMING !!

      We just play our own game now, as we have done all season.

      Controlled, calm, dominant. A side glance on City’s results, and move on. No reason to say that we will suffer a loss of form due to one game.

      Great point - injuries aside a lead is supposed to allow hiccups - we didn’t get outplayed but if you are going to lose city away is pretty high on the probability factor

      Need to win both our home games.

      We play 19th & 30th.

      City play 14th,20th & 29th...they win all 3 they will be 1 point behind us when we play the 30th..

      Don't think Klopp will be buying but the bench looked a bit bare in terms of goal threat. Sturridge when he stop sneezing will only get in if there is an injury. Solanke and Origi not really the part at the minute. Solanke has some potential but even with those 3 we look a bit bare.

      Is the squad strong enough to stay top?

      Solanke still might have a part to play but he’ll have to do it for Bournemouth!

      Salah, Firmino, Mane and Shaqiri are doing just fine. Sturridge and Origi are fine for 5th and 6th choice, and we might get both Oxlade-Chambrlain and Brewster back this season. I think we can certainly look at someone else in the summer with the idea of losing Sturridge and Origi but no need to panic now.

      We’re top, we more than deserve to be there and I fully believe this group has what it takes. Come on Red Men!

      The really cool thing is that the forwards are really starting to click together again now, plus we are about to get our core defenders back. No room for complacency but it's starting to look good, very good.

      Credit where it's due. Sturridge and Origi both gave us important points through their goals. Though their goal count isn't fantastic. I would've said the same thing as you before Daniel scored the first of their two important goals. But look, they played and contributed. Who knows they still will! Also unfair if we judge them in the middle of the season. Maybe from the outside the squad looks bare. But I wouldn't look at Klopp who is the insider in the eye and tell him his bench is bare up front.

      I'd say we should be able to hang on till the finish. We finished the first round on top. Don't see why we can't be top in the second round. We've some points advantage at this stage. All is good, just how we look at things.

      Solanke gone to Bournemouth. Surprised Eddie Howe came back to us after Jordan Ibe. He paid £15m for Ibe and Ibe has done very little for Bournemouth. Still Solanke should get his chances there.

      You'd think with 6 defeats already in 22 games, Spurs are out of the running. Even more so when you consider they still have to go to Chelsea, City and us.

      Two horse race now.

      On the flip side, it would be nice if they took something off city.
