    Getting in here early... Poch (Pouch) has said he's going to make a few changes.

    So expect a load of shit kids, and an angered City to tonk them.

    Seriously, those posters who fancy Spurs to take points off City here  prance around cloud cuckoo land in their rose-tinted glasses.

    City only have the league to focus on, they're angry, teams already lay down and roll over for them. They're going to twat everyone in the next 5 games or whatever it is on their way to winning the league.

    Spurs were my only hope to take points off City. But after they knocked them out of the CL, that hope went away.

    Mind games - he is not in any position to want to want to lose this game.  Will be aiming for a draw at most, and changes will mean probably sorting out the shit that went wrong the other night.

    I still think Leicester is our best hope.

    Fully expect City to be 2-0 up inside 10 mins

    Spurs will score a last minute, marginally offside, equaliser

    After seeing Putacchinos comments about todays game, I expect a City win.
    City have been lucky with these teams fielding weakened sides against them.

    It’s almost even money for city to win their next two games. I’m shite at betting so I’ll take one for the team.

    It's not luck, it's teams being horrifically cynical. I don't like it, but in some case I understand it. If we were regularly scoring 4 or 5 against poor sides I'd fully expect teams to do the same with us too, but this season we've been more conservative in front of goal (despite being extremely good) than last season & than citeh this season.

    I'd be surprised if teams don't start doing it to us next season anyway, esp when they come to Anfield, such is our record at home.

    I don't think Poch is doing it for the same reasons though, if we'd have just had that game Wed & were playing this dinnertime like they are then we'd make a number of changes too, loads of his players will be fucking knackered. He's not throwing the towel in, he's just making sure he doesn't field a load of tired players & risk injuries in the process.

    He'll want at least a point from the game, I have no doubt about that, but obv with citeh having a much stronger squad to choose from they have to be favourites.

    It's a shame, when they first drew spurs in the CL I was made up they played them three times, now I wish they were playing almost any other side, cos a fully rested mid table side against the citeh side would have probably been a harder test following their mid week match.

    He will definitely fight for a draw.  But at the same time I honestly think many city players will have fucked up heads.

    City are going to absolutely annihilate Spurs and everyone else until the end of the season.

    We're gonna end up with that 25 point gap again now, they'll be that good.

    We're going to get 90 plus points and not win the league, then we're gonna lose the CL final against Spurs to cap off the worst season ever.

    Spurs bench in Wednesday was filled with defensive players. They'll need to park the bus today and hope for the best.

    Won't work.

    I'm hoping he still plays Son since he's suspended for the first leg of the semi anyway. Plus they have a tiny squad as it is. I'm hoping they'll have no option but to play a decent side.

    Spurs win and loads of injuries please. Not gonna happen.

    Its pretty close between 3-6th, so Spurs cant really just lose this game and dont think about it. Every point might matter even if they're in the semi finals of the CL.

    I think Pocchettino will play a strong team. But as long as we see Moura and Son up top with Eriksen behind, then they could hurt City on the break.
    Just need them to be solid at the back and not concede an early goal.
    An early goal will settle the City nerves and mentality that surely is a bit fucked at the minute.

    Neville in the build up just said "This isn't a normal title race, both these sides are champions". I nearly fell off the fucking couch.

    He also said he expects citeh to win today but isn't that confident they'll win at either Utd or Burnley as he thinks that's when the CL loss & exertion will affect them more.

    It won't be that strong. Not cos he doesn't want to win, but cos he won't want to risk injury to a few key players with kane also being out.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Dier just back from injury will replace Sissoko. He'll put trippier in for rose coz he was both shit and fucked. He'll probs revert to a back three because Wanyama is fucked. That's a decent side.
