Time for a trip down to london after a disappointing result against the foxes, imo anyway. Now for another mid table team we should be beating if we habour ambitions of winning this title. We have to beat those teams outside of the top 6, we can't afford to be dropping many more points against these mid to bottom of the table clubs, 5 points is nice but it's not a big margin, couple of draws for us and wins for city and that's wiped out, on to the team.
Looks like Milner will come back in at RB seen that Arnold is ruled out and what a blow that gomez will be out for another possibly 2 months, hopefully he'll be back by late march to help us over the line. I'll have Milner, Matip, VVD and Robertson at the back. Maybe hendo will move back to midfield and i'll have Fabinho and Wijnaldum in there as well, the usual 3 upfront.

Hendo Fabinho Wijaldum
Salah Firmino Mane
Something along these lines. Think i've said before about Keita, i have a feeling it's not going to happen for him for whatever reason or at least not this season, it's taking too long for him to get up and running, he's had his chances but not taken them. Shaqiri as well is a bit hot and cold, definitely does better coming on from the bench so hence why i left him out. Like i said, we have to be winning these games to keep that gap open and the pressure on city. I must admit, i'm starting to worry about our lads mentality, of course they feel the pressure but they must handle it and thrive on the fact that we're in a great chance of ending our title drought, let's hope and pray they are mentaly strong and go all the way. Best of luck RedMen.
