Yes...they were unlucky against Arsenal and have something we don’t which is a consistent high tempo...plus it’s up Norf and you know we can’t play well once we get past Watford...in fact we haven’t been playing well south of Watford either..
If we are able to field a consistent group in the 18, the mgr employs a consistent style, its innovative enough, and we get some above average performances by a few of our players, then I don't see much problem with this.
Certainly do not expect it to be exciting, but a methodical 3-0 win would not at all surprise me.
That is, of course, that we don't lose a critical player (or two) to injury before its over. Because that's happened before.
Well I do expect us to drop back, contain and counter - with Son and Kane back as well as Begjwin - this is how I expect we Jose will tactically control the game and hit them when and where it hurts.
They won't roll over as they're not that sort of team, but unless they come up with a new approach we know exactly what to expect from their game plan - Jose has the players now to easily counter their attempt at high press tansitional attacks down the flanks.
If we get an early first half goal, they'll get even more reckless and then we could easily run out 3-0 winners.
In case you haven't noticed he's been playing well and giving teams we've played a real problem - I expect that to continue, our shape and ability move across more quickly to counter his positioning has improved immeasurable with Dier now being where he should always have been and now having a player in front of him that now knows how to cycle recovery positions when out of possession.
Win or bust! - It's a concern that those around has have played their game (32) already so the table looks even more depressing.
Win and we are still 4 points off Wolves and Utd on same games played.
We have some very winnable games in our run in, but so do Utd. We have the gooners, Utd have similarly 'easy' games to us without any real 'threats', so unless they slip up massively, I see us finishing in 6 at best or 13th at worst.
