Do you know that in their premier league matches this season, City has never won more than seven consecutive matches?
They won seven consecutive matches from 20 October 2018 after drawing us at Anfield, till they lost to Chelsea on 9 December. They went on another six consecutive wins between Palace and Newcastle defeats.
From then till now is another six consecutive wins. With seven matches to go, they’ll have to notch 13 consecutive wins (six in the bag + seven perfect wins) in a row.
Tell me the odds of them not dropping a single point with CL, Cup games and a challenging run of fixtures. Remember that some upcoming teams like Palace, their derby, Leicester and Spurs will be tricky.
I’ll give benefit of doubt that some of De Bruyne, Delph, Mendy, Otamendi and Fernandinho will return from injury from 30 March. But Stones is out till 6 April and Kompany with no return date.
In Pep’s own words, if they can win 13 in a row of premiership matches, then they fully deserve the title. But we know it’s very very difficult to go from six to 13 straight wins. Each new game will be more difficult. They will drop points.
If they really don’t, we truly have nothing to say. And by then, the pathetic people (not you) on this board will start hanging Klopp and his squad with the “we should have been 7-10 points clear” kind of sh*t.
