People seem to think it's a forgone conclusion that we're going to win, just because they have Moyes and we have Martinez.
I'm not so sure myself.
Haha I did notice that in the prediction thread we've gone from the Liverpool game where there was widespread pessimism to this game where nearly everyone thinks we're going to win.
Much like when Liverpool are below us everyone likes to go on about how incredibly shite these are. And while they might be a lot worse than in past seasons it's seemingly ignored that they're only 2 points behind us.
If this was Spurs (for example) everyone would be planning for a tough game. Not sure how the table would suggest otherwise.
As it happens I think we've got a chance in both of these games (maybe more in the Utd one as it's the first of the two so we'll be that bit fresher).
But City away showed what can also happen if we don't play well. Hopefully we've learned from what went wrong there and guard against it in these games.
I do think we've got the players to hit these teams on the break now though which is essential if you're going to catch them out at home. We've still been a bit too sloppy in our execution of breaks this season by again, you'd imagine that improving with time and experience as well.
