We need this to win desperately tonight to go 7 clear.
The main reason, apart from the obvious, is when chasing a side with a points margin as big as 7, you know you probably have to win all your remaining games.
That in itself is a huge pressure, whoever you are.
In that situation, on the field, every little mistake, missed tackle, miss placed pass, shots off target etc.
All these normally minor things will be hugely magnified. The anxiety levels will rise, tension sets in, the mistakes become more frequent because of that, and you will feel like you’re playing in lead boots !
Adrenalin will be pumping from the start of each game, be overloaded, and by 65-70 mins in, its Adrenalin come down and you’ll be absolutely shattered.
I’m sure City will be fu**ed if we win tonight. And we can continue game to game, same tempo, same solid defending, and same undefeated bar 1 for the second half of the season as well.
3:1 tonight I think, although a clean sheet would be nice.
