      We can afford 1 draw.

      Right now, feeling pretty gutted about missing them 4 points last week. Would feel a lot more comfortable.

      I’ll just say it, Spurs and City both dropping points today.

      Want the lottery numbers too? Nah, ok.

      F**k it, no point playing on til May. Just end the season now, hand the title to City and send the players on an extended break. There's always next year.

      His not saying that though is he.

      I think Rib is right here, i think City are hitting their purple patch right now and it will probably keep going on like this title the seasons wrapped up.

      We need to be as relentless as City and IMO win all our remaining games.

      N spurs are still in the race I still think. Absolutely got battered by Leicester who could scored 10 and still manage a win mainly to son. We need keep believing anyway.

      If you think they'll win 14 in a row, fair play. I doubt City were panicking thinking we'd win every game when we didn't drop a point in December.

      They've dropped 11 points to Wolves, Palace, Leicester and Newcastle. Yes they've had a great week but those previous results show they can be stopped.

      Long way to go, many twists to come. For what it's worth I expect both City and us to lose before the season is out.

      Nonsense.

      Winning this game easily doesn’t make them any more likely to win the rest of their fixtures.

      If anything I like them feeling like they’re indestructible.

      That’s when they are most vulnerable.

      They don’t play again in the league for nearly 3 weeks. They will drop more points.

      This is just a win. The problem is everyone built this into us needing Chelsea to do us a favour as if we’re hanging on.

      This just brings them level having played a game more.

      I dunno you guys

      like I'm feeling quite depressed and down to be honest. I'm not old enough to have seen us lift the title back in the 70s and 80s and I've been a Liverpool fan since the early Houllier days back in the late 90s early 2000s, back when Michael Owen was my football idol. So I'm desperate for us to win the title, at least I could see the team that I love win it. However, how can we ever compete with Man City? they just thrashed Chelsea and I'm feeling a bit pessimistic about chances against Man Utd, so my head is saying that even if we get the same amount of points, City will always have a huge goal difference than us because of their quality and because they cheated their way spending money and UEFA turning a blind eye on their over inflated sketchy sponsorship deals. Yes I'm feeling bitter, f**k it, I just hope UEFA comes to their senses and ban those f*cks from Europe.

      or maybe I should be more positive and believe that we will get a result against the Mancs and put them in their place.

      This....

      Its 3 pts thats all, we still have a game in hand, once the CL kicks in things will happen, we will.play max twice in a week for as long as we stay in, City could play 3 in a week if they remain in the FA cup & CL, and still have to win to keep tabs with us, all that pressure,  plus fatigue = f**k ups, we  just need to make sure we keep our little bumps down to a minimum.

      Its gonna be as tight as a nuns punanni, but it'll be City doing the hail Mary's in May.

      Chill. Check how many they've lost this season and then have a look at how many we have lost and ask yourself who's proven to be the more beatable in the league. Then check how many points we've dropped in this drop of form.

      It's on. This break could be just what we need.

      For aside who got beat 4:0 bybournemouth, you’d expect them to get battered by city. Chavs don’t have a plan b. They play open football and try to get the ball up top to Willian and Hazard. That’s all they hope for. Their defence is hit and miss. Their results depend on the first 15 minutes of a game. If they can get a bit of momentum going, they are usually ok. Nothing more just ok. If they get put under pressure early, they are poor.
      I thought if the former turned up they’d manage a draw at best.
      It seems the latter turned up and the rest is history.
      Doesn’t matter if city scored 15 against the Chavs, as long as we keep wining, they’ll run out of games and we’ll be 3 points ahead.
      We’ve hit some good form, and while we play like we did yesterday, there’s not a side in the Prem who will live with it. Including Utd, Chavs and Bitters, or anyone else who we’ve got left to play !
      It’s up to us, we do our job, and it doesn’t matter a jot what city do.
      We’ve played them twice already, they can’t influence our results any more !
      Have faith boys, look forward to the next match, and the one after that and the one after that. Just 12 to go.

      Didn't seriously expect Chelsea to get anything but their defence was woeful. 3 minutes in and they fall apart. When yer see these teams collapse in a heap my respect for Rafa goes up a notch. Least he has a clue how to organise a team to defend. And in truth none of the Newcastle team would get into City's team, so to beat them speaks volumes for Rafa's coaching skills.

      Honestly don't see why Sarri till continues with Kante further forward.

      The wee man is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, it's been shown by him winning two premier league titles in a row with two different clubs.

      If he's just accommodating Jorginho, then the man's a phoney. If I can see it, then everyone can see it.
