    I am going entirely off watching him say the sentence I quoted on Match of the Day.

    he's now backtracking in the paper to sound less definitive.

    They are assuming that nothing is gonna happen to their lynchpins!

    In fairness, it's a pretty sound assumption!

    Charlie Nicholas has predicted a 2-6 victory for City!

    The team in second (and should be first if not for the VAR farce) with the most CS (tied) and second lowest GA (tied) is predicted to ship two goals to the team currently in 19th place after only conceding 2 goals in a match once in the last 24 league games (to Spurs).

    Apparently we’re ****ed without Laporte, ladies and gents.

    Time to hand the title to Liverpool. To be fair, they’ve never lost a lead in the league, much less one as substantial as 2 points, so I suppose I can see how the pundits are arriving at this “shift” consensus.

    Possibly, but multiple sites on 31/8 and 1/9 have a quote using 'towards'. Either way, I don't see anything wrong with what he said.

    I think they're assuming that Pukki will score. Two seems a bit of a stretch though!

    I am actually considering a bet on that very outcome (which means he won’t, as my winning streak will likely end this weekend, and you can all thank me after the match), but City conceding two goals is indeed a stretch.

    Maybe we do concede two, anything can happen, but there is little data to support a prediction of it, so it is really just the undervaluing bias out again. It’s like predicting Liverpool to lose 1-0 to West Ham—it could happen, to be sure, but predicting it will is daft based on all available information.

    Then again, it is Charlie Nicholas.
