Absolutely. If we can keep the gap to even 4 points it will be massive given we are the only contender who will have played 2 of the 'big 6' twice. I've included Manchester United in that forThe next two matches are extremely important not because if we lose both we’re out of the Title race but because if we win both its going to put us in an incredibly strong position. Spurs have much easier corresponding fixtures and if they don’t make up any ground on us over the next two rounds they’re going to find it very difficult moving forward. They still have tough away fixtures to Chelsea, City and Anfield and home games against Arsenal and United to come.
Thats what you get for being the best team in the league. Rafa rested his players for Watford, and expected nothing from the match. We had that game won well before 3pm this afternoon.Mauling. Almost felt like a belated pressie from Rafa the way he selected the team and set them up. Was a hang on job from the kick off for them, and then the dam busted.
I know you were but ive got to keep my concentration as much as the team haha
Keys is a buffoon. It is scarcely worth considering the opinions of someone who has never played the game at a high level, nor done a refereeing course....but has managed to get himself fired for saying stupid things about a referee.A calm as you like atmosphere and game really. Lovren started us beautifully with a well taken half volley that he belted into the top corner. A striker's finish. Mo then went down rather easily though the ref was blowing his whistle for the slightest nudge so it makes sense to me to go down easy if the ref was going to call it that way. Richard Keys thinks it was simulation and Mo might be in trouble by the FA and they can suspend him for 2 games if found guilty. If that happens I think we should kick up a storm about how it was our first pen since October 2017 that should shut them up.
7 points ahead of City and the GD even. Oh and Spurs have caught up with City so they are 6 points behind us. At this point the league really is ours to lose.
Anything more than Zero points and we will still be top! That is a great place to be with very little pressure. Imagine the pressure on City if they go into the Jan 3rd still 7 or more points behind!the real test in the next 2 matches
hope we can get full 6 points from them
but yeah enjoy the moment
we're on the top because of our performance
