During the International break our record this season was identical to that of last season after 31 games played.
We had the same number of wins, defeats, draws, goals scored and goals conceded – and the same number of points – 35.
But last year in our next two games we beat Leicester City 2-1 away and then beat Arsenal 2-1 at home for a famous win.
We were on 41 points last season after 33 games played but then took our foot off the accelerator – and lost four in a row.
And then we smashed Chelsea 3-0 at home to end the season on a high with 44 points in 10th place.

We’ll do very well to reach 44 points this season but 10th place now seems out of reach – we are currently 8 points behind Everton in 10th place with a much inferior goal difference.
Maybe we can beat Leicester City again on Friday night at the King Power Stadium?
