    Wanted us to play 3 at the back against these lot last time we faced them to match City’s 5 attackers and now we’ve had a good run playing this system so we should be well prepared.

    Maybe Arteta had this game in mind when he switched over to 343.

    For some reason, KDB and Sterling always score against us Everytime we play them

    I think the way Arteta set us up against them last month was spot on.

    We were containing them (even though our attack was blunt) until the Luiz howler.

    We must make as little mistake as possible or none at all.

    No kolasinac in LCB. Don't think I can watch him one on one with Mahrez

    Bellerin would be utterly useless against them.

    That’ll be because they’re world class players and they’re up against our defenders.

    Same reason Messi, Suarez, Drogba, Robben, Lewandowski etc etc always did.

    Only reason this game now matters is the route to EL qualification.
    Even that is a long shot. Remember Chelsea or United await on the other side.

    If the game does not look salvageable by half time, throw 5 kids on the pitch and rest the key players for Villa

    :lol: I like that we are hopeless about the match. Usually it's a good omen

    Still the toughest assignment in English football. It's going to be another smash and grab. So long as we are no more than a goal down we have hope

    Well there's always a chance. If we can keep it close maybe we can beat them but I have a feeling they will field their strongest team and win by several goals.

    We're probably the crappest counter attacking team I've seen. When you play counter attacking football you just don't defend and hoof it every single time to the opposition. What's the point? Try to play attack and if the ball is lost get back regroup quickly defend as 10 unit that's how it's done. Don't hoof

    KDB masterclass incoming and he’ll be inducted into the PL hall of fame after this game.

    Shame we didn't get Chelsea or Utd. They both would have rested lots of main players.

    We haven't beaten (or drawn) them since April 2017. Each of the losses was by 2 or more goals.

    BUT that April game was in the FA cup -- a competition they haven't beaten us in since February of 1904! (Though admittedly we've only met 4 times).

    The one that had one truly great season in his whole career & was somehow considered a world class player only because he used to score against us everytime

    City played with Liverpool so all we can hope for is just for the best. but every match is different and City has lost 9 matches this season in the league so we are in with a shout.
