On current form, City's spirit may already be broken no matter what they say to the cameras. Their defence is shaky and they seem much more vulnerable this season.

On the other hand, Leicester are building up momentum. They have nothing to lose and from February will have a significant advantage as they're not in Europe. We shouldn't under estimate them so I think we need them to suffer a knock sooner rather than later.

Leicester easily, it would be foolish to write city off even this far, as for Leicester, they cannot be underestimated but their squad isn't that big so expect them to drop points sooner or later. Also we play Leicester immediately after the cwc so we can make the gap bigger there.

City's spirits have been broken, and they are out of it, so I wouldn't mind them winning. I think it's very possible that we get to our game with Leicester still 8 points clear of them, so if we could make it 11 with a chance to make it 14, all the better.

As we've pulled away form the pack, the pressure has begun to decrease, and Klopp has started to rotate even the front 3, and we're just moving into better form. The more we pull away in the league, the more accommodating we can be for other competitions. It would be brilliant to win a double or treble.

Iím more worried about how the world club cup will effect our form more than who wins that game.

We have a lead after 16games. Anyone who thinks we can't be caught or have our own blip with 22 games left to go is just asking to be disappointed. We are the team that has blown it the most

Very true. Our lead looks good on paper and give the media something to sensationalise. But in reality all it means is that we have hit the ground running from the start whilst others were still warming up. Anyone who expects us to maintain the same points return over the next 15 games is dreaming. It could be done, but is unlikely. The question is whether the teams behind us will improve in terms of points gathered.

Yep. No counting our chickens just yet. Anything can and probably will happen.

Nice thought. The worrying thing though is that, if I remember correctly, we haven't done too well after warm weather breaks when Klopp had tried them before crazy And first game back we go to Leicester! sick
