Important Month For City, Spurs & United

Important Month For City, Spurs & United

As this article is being written Manchester City sit pretty at the top of the Premier League table, three points ahead of Tottenham and Manchester United.

No one will win the league in January, nevertheless this months results are going to make the difference in respect of who may, or may not be crowned champions.

January fixtures

Manchester City:


Wigan (A) - Monday 16
Tottenham (H) - Sunday 22
Everton (A) - Tuesday 31

Tottenham:

Wolves (H) - Saturday 14
Man City (A) - Sunday 22
Wigan (H) - Tuesday 31

Manchester United:

Bolton (H) - Saturday 14
Arsenal (A) - Sunday 22
Stoke (H) - Tuesday 31

Predictions

I'm hopeful City will pick up at least seven points, Spurs will more than likely do something similar. Meanwhile, United will probably piss everyone off and get maximum points.

The next couple of weeks are going to be nail-biters (gulp).

I think Feb/march is more important for Utd/Spurs than January is for us. My guess is that come the end of January, things will be as they were. But I do think we have the beating of Spurs, simply because we have the beating of any team that tries to attack us. And Spurs won't be able to control themselves. The Etihad is a fortress, no points dropped in the league.

As a Spurs fam new to your site, I have to agree with the assessment. On your day you can beat anyone - and beat them comprehensively as you have done to us and United - but you do seem to have wobbled a little of late. I don´t think we will be as naive as we were at home when we went all out and got stuffed good and proper - I think a draw would be a good result all round. United however might struggle away to the Gooners. But as Big Red Nose says, The Prem isn´t won in January - but it can be lost.

It can't really be lost for us though Graeme because worst case scenario is we're 6 points behind come the end of Jan. With another 15 fixtures to play after that that gap can be quite quickly closed as Spurs have shown us in the first half of the season.

If Spurs are within 3-5pts of City/United after February they have a massive chance, their run-in is easy. But they have six or so very hard fixtures in the next couple of months. Spurs are well in the hunt but have only faced one team in the top six in their last thirteen fixtures, while City have played five top six teams in the same timespan and are still top. Then again, we will struggle in fixtures like Everton away and Stoke away, they are always tough fixtures for us.

Will one side pull away? What a time it would be to do it. The time for full on form is March.

maybe FCB - with a combined age of over 500 hahaha - but we always pull strong after Jan - where other teams fall by the wayside :)
