      Can we go 6 points clear of City before their next PL match after the their cup games?.

      If we keep pace with them up to then, I think we can go 5 clear.

      Need to check fixtures tho, cant remember off top of head.

      By my reckoning, we play 31 games each, then we play Spurs on Sunday 31st March then Southampton on Friday 5th April before City play their 32nd game on Saturday 6th April. 

      So yes, potential to get 5 points ahead on 5th April if we match them until then, plus win those 2 games.

      It's going to be tight.
      We're not in the best of form right now, which is a bit surprising, given the 2nd half of the season has been our best for points since Klopp came, bar a couple of blips.

      My take for what it's worth...

      Our only tough game remaining is Spurs at home. I expect to beat them still, but that's the only potential banana skin that I see. They're a good side so if they turn up and play anywhere near their best then we are in for a tough match.

      People are saying Chelsea but they're an absolute mess. To keep us out, they would have to set up similarly to how they did against city in the league cup final. Even if they do i still think we'll find a couple of goals. Their midfield will get over run by ours and I fancy our three against their back line any day.

      City on the other hand have a run of four tough games. I expect them to win their next three but then they go to palace, host Spurs, then go to united and Burnley. That's a horrible run of fixtures for this stage of the season.

      Let's not forget they'll have an fa cup quarter/semi sandwiched in between and they'll face tougher opposition in the European cup too.

      Although they've still gotten the points which is all that matters, the last few games they've been really lethargic. They were lucky against West Ham and lucky against Bournemouth. They were also lucky to win the cup. They're not playing well at the minute and the pressure is getting to them.

      Back to those four games I mentioned though. I'll be gobsmacked if city manage 12 points but if they do, they'll win the title.

      With any luck the cu*ts at Citeh will see that Real Madrid and now PSG have been knocked out of the Champs League and they might think it's there best chance yet. They throw all their eggs in that basket and their League Form takes a hit because of it.

      So much to play for, I'm not giving up!!

      Man City are going to drop points in late April/May as long as they are still in UCL. Look at this:

      Cardiff (H) 6th April
      CL Qtr 09/10 April
      Palace (A) 14th April
      CL Qtr 16/17th April
      Spurs (H) 20th April
      United (A) 24th April
      Burnley (A) 28th April
      CL Semi 1st May
      Leicester (H) 4th May
      CL Semi 07/08 May
      The only league game I see them having a guaranteed win is the Cardiff game and maybe Burnley. As long as they go far in Europe and we stay on their tails going into May, I fancy us.

      Wouldn’t say they will for sure. After they lost to Newcastle I didn’t think they’d win vs Arsenal, Chavs and Everton in the space of a week. I was expecting them to at least draw one of them, instead they bagged about 11 goals and blew them away. But saying that, I think us dropping points probably gave them the boost they needed for that spell.

      What do you guys think of Watford@MC? Watford got beaten pretty bad by us recently, but they are a decent team according to the table. Are they dangerous for City?

      City can piss themselves around. A walk in the park. Take it like some training match. They'll definitely trash Watford. 20% effort will do. Even playing the reserves or without intensity would be too much for Watford. They can afford to go into the match without any training and tactics. That's how good this City team is I tell you. I hope they're so confident that the players go into the game with both eyes closed.
