Only 2 points behind City at the top but they are a huge 2 points. Feel more like 5 for some reason.

What? 2 points are 2 points mate. It's nothing.

It's more like 2.5 point with goal difference.

Math teachers globally are miserably failing their jobs if 5 feels like 2. That's all I have to say.

Manchester City haven't played Chelsea in the league yet. Easily the next best team after us, lots of football to be played and lots of points to be dropped.

As LiverpoolFC8 put it, Manchester City have had an absurdly good start to the season. But they're only two points ahead of a team that hasn't even gotten into second gear. let's see how we're look in February when the team is gelling.

Even if we were level on points still second on goal difference so it no major issue if we go by last season we were to far back come Christmas if we are touching distance in January I fancy our chances.

I think the Xmas games may be the proving ground for all the top 6 teams.

Had LFC won the PL under BR, we would have won it while having an inferior goal difference to City's so the GD is of no relevance PROVIDED we have the points advantage.

As for City, they have had a great start to the season BUT people forget that they have actually dropped more points (4 overall) than they did at this point last season (2). Also, Pep's teams are known to hit a burnout stage near the end of the season as he did with Barca, Bayern and even City last season. Why? Cos Pep does NOT rotate and never has.

The diff. last season was that they were already well ahead of the pack and also, teams would never go at them, UNTIL Klopp and LFC did and we know what happened there in all 3 occasions we played them after the winter and spring. They will falter and it will be up to us to capitalize.

{Ed025's Note - at the moment brover i think this is you hoping rather than anything mate, city look very strong and have some excellent back up,s to step in when required so i dont think your assessment holds much water, yes he does play his strongest side but that is surely to his credit and they have top players to come in even if things do go wrong, liverpool have a strong first team which is not that much weaker than citys but anyone they bring in weakens the side as the squad depth is very much inferior to theirs, this is just my opinion of course...peace..

Ed25, you are having a conversation that I am not having. I never said City did not look strong nor did not have a better squad. I said they drop off during the season cos Pep does not rotate and gave you an example of this and it is the same with all Pep's teams since Barca. Will that happen this season? Of course I hope so. What were you expecting me to say? Of course we are all hoping for things to go our way cos after all, no one is sure of anything.

Also, you say he plays his strongest lineup. That is to some extent true but it is by choice. Last season, Pep complained that he was lacking depth when they drew at Burnley and they have only added Mahrez this season so again, where is the depth then? It is he who does not play the squad players and not that he does not have the squad cos It all depends on who Pep trusts and clearly he does not trust Jesus, Zinchenko, Delph, Kompany, and has no replacement for Fernandinho.

City has a better squad than we do cos they have been chopping and changing good players for years. We are still young in the tooth on that level so you are stating the obvious here, man. Will we win the PL over City? I don't know cos anything can happen. We all live in hope and that is all we have right now.

{Ed025's Note - i often talk to myself brover, its old age mate.. :) peace..

I'll just add that despite my admiration for Guardiola, I've always felt that for some reason he has never been able to instill supreme mental toughness into his teams. The way Mourinho does, or the way Ferguson did. You don't get that "we refuse to be beaten" vibe from Guadiola's players. He's a master in the tactical aspects of the game and in choosing players (while having an open checkbook at his disposal), but his teams can buckle when the pressure is really high.

It was not by coincidence that we eliminated them last year in the UCL. It's irrelevant it was a different competition; the football fields were the same, the country was the same and the players were the same, as were being played in the EPL. Klopp simply did a better job of instilling mental toughness and focus in LFC.

So ManC can be flying high right now, but they can wobble at any moment under the right circumstances, and it could be enough for us to sneak through to the final prize,

With regard to my original post please try and read between the lines. Point I was trying to make is that City are a fantastic squad and we will have to be flawless for the rest of the season to make those 2 points up.
