      Everton game moved in between Arsenal, Chelsea for city. So now it's Newcastle(A), Arsenal(H), Everton (A), Chelsea(H) in a space of 12 days.

      Interesting couple of weeks ahead.  Let's see if the game in hand actually puts them in a good position or f**k them up.

      It's actually us that will have the game in hand from it. The bad news is, it's away to the mancs. But at least, we'll know what result we need going into the game.

      Always been points on the board for me, or in cities case, points off the board.
      4 ahead now, could be 7 tomorrow. If city had won, and were just 1 behind, the pressure would be huge going for a win.  Now, the lads can relax a bit, play their own game, and know whatever the outcome it can’t be less than 4 ahead.
      No room for complacency, but a lot of pressure lifted.
      although I don’t like these long breaks, I’m hoping we get straight back at it, fluent smooth aggressive footy, with a solid back line.
      Rauscious crowd, and grab the three points.
      Come on you mighty Red Men 😁

      So before our game, we knew what result we needed to extend our lead, and despite the response after it, we extended it.

      If we played first and got the same result though, there would have been meltdown.

      Taking the positives is the only way to go. Conditions and injuries, form of one or two, but we increased our lead. City have shown several times already that they are not immune to poor form or unbeatable. Still in the balance, every one of those 5 points will be needed.

      In my opinion its all about getting points on the board and asking questions of the others.

      It means that you've delivered, but they still need to do a job.

      Id rather set the tempo then try and match it.

      Having City play before us, I can definitely say I’d rather have the points than the game in hand...I’m a nervous wreck!

      It's unfortunate every week we seem to get new injuries. Now gini and hendo are very doubtful for weekend. We don't have the depth of city who now despite playing 2/3times a week have everyone fit. You look at our bench Monday and there bench tonight. De bryne sterling mahrez and jesus all can only get a place on the bench. I still live in hope but it be difficult if our injured players are not back soon. Anyway three points sat. Can't expect anything tonight and espically with Everton three best players given the night off

      Now we're the ones with the game in hand. Let's make it count.

      We may not be top but unlike our rivals,  our destiny is still in our own hands.

      We deffo need a win on Sat so we go from game in hand to points on the board again. More important is a defining win. A good team performance and a big comfortable win, preferably with a clean sheet.
      Not firing up top, disjointed midfield and a poor defence ! We need a convincing win to get the confidence up again, because if we go to macs with our heads down and a lack of confidence we will get hammered. That will probably be good buy to the title.
      If ever there was a must win game, for  lots of reasons apart from the 3 points, this is it.

      Lallana isn't the answer  to our midfield, Millie isn't the answer to r back ( although he may fare better against Bournemouth) and if Bob has another mare, he has to go off a lot earlier before any damage is done.  It seems Mane is the only one who hasn't been adversely affected by our current injury crop. Doesn't look like any of the walking wounded will be available on Sat either, so options are a bit limited .
      Matip is really the only answer to go in at C Back wit VVD unless we play the youngster in there again, but he looks all over the place. In mid field I think Lallana just doesn't cut it, and hasn't since his return from injury, but neither has shaq apart from the odd few occasions. They both seem to have loads of energy, loads of running in them, but very little end product most of the time.
      Bottom line is, we are in a pretty poor state compared to December, and the confidence looks shot to pieces.  Even though we can still go top, its looking like a huge task to stay there until our sick bay is cleared.
