With Bournemouth beating a 9 man Spurs side 1-0 with a stoppage-time goal they now move 3 points ahead of Newcastle and we are down to 14th place in the league.
So we need to take something out of this game tonight
It will be tough but the last time Manchester City didn’t win in the league was when we beat them 2-1 at home in late January.
So it’s possible we can win but everything needs to be near perfect tonight.
This is what Paul Merson (shown above) has said about the game:
“You hope Liverpool win, you really do, (we don’t) because otherwise, you look at it and the fact they lost 3-0 at Barcelona, and if they draw here their season’s fizzled out in four days.”
“I think they’ll win, the other night they just came up against an extraordinary club. They don’t deserve their season to fizzle out.”
“They should at least take it to the last day.”
“Newcastle will make it a long night for them, they’re used to being tight, they don’t have to entertain, their fans know what they’re like.”
“They’ll make it hard and it’ll be a tough one.”
