I still don't have the belief that we will genuinely be able to put these lesser teams/bankers games to bed.

We did with Stoke and Fulham recently but even this season (never mind historically) we have failed a lot this season (Norwich, Palace, West Brom & Cardiff spring to mind)

I'll be happy as long as we stay unbeaten I think, as long as we follow it up with 2 home wins (7 points from the next 3 looking at the bigger picture)

Norwich, West Brom and Cardiff aren't really relevant. They still count obviously but we were a different team then.

We only won four away league games last season?! Wow, I would have thought it would be a few more.

There is something to the fact that we do better when teams don't sit back. We still haven't truly found reliable ways to break down teams set up to get numbers back.

Lukaku isn't the key on his own. We need to create more chances. And the likes of Barkley, Osman, Pienaar, and Mirallas need to chip in with a few more goals.

We got 42 points at home.

Think that was the 3rd best in the league (just behind City and Utd).

Now that we are title contenders we have to start putting away these mid table teams like Man Utd and Swansea.

I rate Swansea, doubt we will see over 60% possession as we have in many games this season, Swansea like to keep the ball too, should make for a very watchable game though. I assume it will be the team that started at Arsenal so in that respect I'm expecting something out of the game but will be happy with a point away, delighted with all three.

Since City: P9 W5 D4 L0 F17 A7 P19
First Half Goals 4
Second Half Goals 13

Games are more open seconds half of course but I see the majority of goals being scored after the break as pointing to our superior possession in most matches, tiring the opposition out and allowing us more freedom as the game wears on. As I say in this game I don't see Swansea allowing us so much ball so I'm predicting 90 minutes of crisp passing, bit of a chess match and both sides creating maybe only a couple of real opportunities all game. My money would be on 1-1 but all three results possible, with a win by the odd goal.

Not feeling the nervousness. We outplayed Arsenal at the Emirates, I am sure we can beat Swansea. It's just a case of how many we will score.

When did our fans become so arrogant?

Swansea Away is a bloody hard fixture.

Assuming that Liverpool win and if Chelsea beat Arsenal then we will only be 2 points off top if we win.

Expecting to beat the mighty Swansea is not arrogance.
