Pep Guardiola brings his free-scoring Manchester City side to Nouveau WHL to match wits with old nemesis Jose Mourinho. In a season of mediocrity, our home numbers offer some crumbs of comfort - only the top 3 have won more at home and only Liverpool and Sheffield United have conceded fewer goals in front of their own fans (I had to do a double-take on that one). The bad news is City have scored 34 away goals, which is almost as many as we have scored home and away (38). Bad news II: we have won none of our last 12 in the league against the Big 6 (lost 9, drawn 3) and Jose has won none of his last 8 against Big 6 opposition (lost 6, drawn 2), including all 3 as Tottenham boss, stats which support the argument that he is being left behind by his more progressive peers. Hopefully the signings of Bergwjin and Lo Celso, along with the departures of the malcontents Eriksen and Rose, will have lifted some of the cloud that has hung over the team this season.
