While this season hasn’t been without its blips, we’ve been showing excellent form in the Premier League recently. We’re currently top of the form table having dropped just two points in our last six games, with our closest competition in the League this season – Manchester City – way down in sixth.
Considering our recent injury woes this bodes extremely well heading into a busy Christmas period, and suggests we are more than capable of overtaking Manuel Pellegrini’s side and moving top of the actual table.
Things look especially positive when you look at our upcoming fixtures, with a number of relegation candidates coming up after the international break. We’ll be facing West Bromwich Albion, Norwich City, Sunderland, and Aston Villa in quick succession, followed by a potentially season defining six pointer against Manchester City at the Emirates.
We could be in a fantastic position come Christmas, but need to make the most of a fantastic run of fixtures.
