We've struggled against Wolves since before they came back up, so don't expect this to be easy.

Traore looked like a footballer last time, think he'll be the danger again.

Going to be a grind against Leicester with
injuries mounting. A win would be great but a draw away is still a good result.

It's already over. 3 more points won't make a significant difference. Just an odd weekend to call out as the important one.
It's only half way through the season. Bigger leads have been reeled in before. Hopefully we can maintain the gap until Feb at least. See what happens from there.

You are seriously under estimating the nervousness and anxiety of the Liverpool fans.
It ain't over till it's mathematically over.

City had a ridiculous 2nd half to last year. Nothing is set in stone yet. Buy 1 CB in Jan and they could again become unstoppable. Not nervous at all tho :oops:

Because if City lose and we win we would then be 17 clear of City. Then I'd call it. Absolutely call it. But what City did last season in the back half was ridiculous. They are capable. If it's 11 points after this weekend then it's not set in stone.

Big weekend. Still a long way to go.

Having said that, what City did in the back half of last season we are pretty much doing now. Incredibly long unbeaten run. Only loss in two season that one against City which we narrowly lost.

Sometimes I need to take a step back because as a fan you are caught up in it. But I can see from an outsiders perspective.. you would think we have it absolutely in the bag.

Those figures are incorrect. Utd were 8 points up in 11/12 and 11 points up in 97/98

Lol pool fans, the title is yours.
Funny thing is if the Liverpool fans were raving about the title being over, they would be called arrogant and cocky. But what has happened is everyone else is saying that Liverpool have the title in the bag but their own fans are saying that anything can happen.

What has occurred as a result is a weird argument.
