Even if we get 8 points out of 12 for those 4 games (draws against two of the top 6 teams) we should be very well set.This is actually a very good time to be playing Man Utd and Spurs.
Villa away might be tricky if their confidence keeps improving, although I suspect City might bring them down to earth a bit.
Lining itself up for a tasty game against City mid November.
Yes I expected we would concede a few more this season however I did expect us to more than outweigh that with goals scored. That's not the case so far imo mainky due to our attackers flaffing about with back heals and such like when a shot looks like the better option.People just think we are worse defensively because that’s what pundits and newspapers tell them. We are playing a higher line this season due to the introduction of VAR, and we have caught teams offside more than any other team I think I read. So at times it looks like we are getting caught out we are just playing the odds a bit. Seems to be working for us
We kept a clean sheet in each of the next 6 corresponding league games from last season so if we're still only one behind after that sequence we'll have done bloody well.It's interesting that despite all the talk of our defence struggling - and I don't think that's necessarily wrong - we've only conceded one goal more than in the corresponding fixtures last season. And that's with our second-choice GK playing most of the games.
