    I wouldn't be that confident of beating them twice. They will reduce both games to wars of attrition as they did against Liverpool, and such games are decided by moments

    Lukaku showed that he's not a very good footballer last night. Ball was going into him and he could not control it. Savage wasn't happy with him.

    As long as we beat Arsenal, which I think could be difficult, I am not that bothered what happens at Stamford Bridge. Conte has taken the last resort now of football management, attacking his players in public.

    We'll know how the land lies on Monday. If we can maintain our form then we don't need to worry about anyone. Even if we slip up, we'l still be able to re-charge our batteries and go again. You might be right about Utd being our most likely rivals. Everyone else seems to be vulnerable. I thought Chelsea would be stronger this season. Mentality looks weak. Missing their captains of old. I can see why Conte is getting frustrated with his players.

    Guardiola has always won it in his third season too, by which time Mourinho is usually self-imploding.

    The only team stopping City winning the league is City themselves.

    Or we could lose to Arsenal whilst they win at Chelsea and then we could lose both head to heads and our 5 point lead would turned into being 4 points behind.

    Whilst I am not expecting the above, what is certainly true is that all champions drop points and nearly always - if not always - in unexpected circumstances. I am convinced personally that the scum will finish either 1st or 2nd this season, and if there were to finish second, no team has ever won by a 20 point margin so we'd be very unlikely to do so.

    We'll be going some to break the record of 95 points, and even if we did that, the scum would need to finish on 75 or less. I just don't see it happening. On their present trajectory, they'd get 95 themselves. And the have several key players missing. Add Ibra back into the mix, and I cannot see them getting less than 80 to 85 points. Unfortunately.

    Their present trajectory isn't 95 points. 23 points from 10 games = 2.3pg = 87 or 88 points.

    Yes we could and that's not impossible, but the question wasn't "is it possible to finish behind them", the question was is it possible to finish 20 points clear of United.

    My mistake I was thinking they were 5 points behind us and therefore on 25. Simple brain fart on my part.

    3.8 x 23 = 87.4 as you say. I expect them to finish low to mid 80's.
