    That’s a lot of footy on Saturday with a couple of evening games!

    Naturally, focus is on the Battle of the MoneyBags clubs, with Chelsea in a prime position to halt their mini-slump with a dramatic win over City.

    Potential banana skins for Salahpool and the Harry Kane Team, should be points in the bank for YooUtd and the Goon Show….

    Going to be interesting, that’s for sure. City are one of the very few teams (if any) who are good enough not to have to bother with the ‘Jorge-Block’ tactic which others have proven is a pretty decent way of stopping the whole ‘Sarri-Ball’ system… which would suggest Sarri is very likely to continue it. Off course, depending on how the game develops, Pepe could introduce it… he’s a smart lad who doesn’t just wear nice cardigans, that’s for sure.

    I’m thinking no real surprises from either team regarding line-ups/formations, both teams have rested their big-dogs midweek. Hopefully it will live up to it’s hype… but purely for personal reasons, I’m hoping for a City win!

    Can’t only see a city win chums

    Chelsea are a very good side and great at home but this city team is just to good

    Like who is going to stop them? By end of sat they will have played all the top sides away except utd. So is actually going to beat this team? They got through most of their difficult away games and show no signs of slowing down

    Chelsea will attack them though. Shoukd be interesting

    I’m inclined to agree, City just have too much going forwards and a much stronger defense too… but that’s why we play the game! Chelsea are really going to have to be on top of their game to have any chance of any sort of result.

    The overall question is simply will Sarri just set-up as usual or possibly contemplate a twerk (see what I did there?) or two as it’s City? I can’t help feeling setting up as usual is going to play straight into City’s hands over the course of 90 minutes.

    Lol,Chelsea beating City- @ home is now considered an upset.But if they play like anything like they did against the Spuds and the Wolverines,they will get spanked,properly! A draw it is then..

    But that’s it banjo. Teams are afraid to attack city. Liverpool
    And city at Anfield was because both teams were cautious. Maybe city showed a bit more balls towards the end and shoukd have won

    Spurs had a go but I think most teams are more concerned about getting trashed by city

    Show some balls and attack them. Lyon did twice and got 4 points

    Wasplicker… there’s very few teams outside the Top6 who fancy having a go at a Top6 side, watched a fair few sit-back against my boys too over the last 3/4 years… but who can blame them? Nobody really wants to be eaten by the lions, do they? Hope for a draw and maybe sneak a goal. I’ve even watched a few of them still sit back when 1-0 down, and then chucking the kitchen sink in the last 10 minutes, nothing to lose…
    No team is unbeatable, even City, but having a crack at them in the first half when it’s still 0-0, that’s a daft as daft can get in my opinion.

    Anyway, I think Chelsea are going to give it a go, nobody is really giving them a shot, they’re already in the “got nothing to lose” column like everybody else….

    Mav, Spurs and Wolves were two very different games v Spurs Chelsea deserved nothing and were lucky to get away with 3-1 but against Wolves despite 5 changes from the team v Fulham Chelsea completely dominated the game but failed to take their chances. City are a different animal altogether they’re probably currently the best team in Europe and anyone in the PL beating City currently would be a suprise.

    Spurs still yet to field a full strength team this season. Current injury list – foyth, Sanchez, trippier, dembele, wanyama, lamela.

    Paxo… what would be your strongest Spud 11, if all fit? Just curious… 🙂

    Personally, I would have a 5-1-3-1 which kinda plays like a 3-3-3-1 when needed…

    GK – Obvious!
    CB’s- Toby, Sanchez, Jan
    FB’s/WB’s – Trippier and Rose
    Holding Midfilder – Dier
    AM – Son, Ali, Erik,
    ST – Obvious, again! 🙂

    Not bad, wanted to put in the Moose, but I think we’ve seen his better days, injured or not, and basically it was a choice between Sanchez or Dinksy Winksy… 3 CB’s & 1 DM vs 2’cbs& 2 CM’S…
