Note to self - check the fixture lists more often, for some reason I thought this game was on Sunday - apologies for putting this up late.

It's been a bad week. Humiliated by the scousers, then humbled by Juventus.

Something isn't right with the team at the moment. Injuries have certainly taken their toll, but it can't just be that can it? Tactics have been questionable, and several players are either going through a slump in form at the moment or are proving that perhaps they're just not good enough for the team.

Having lost top spot when realistically we should be clear of everyone else in first place, we really aren't all that at the moment. Can't say I begrudge Leicester their lead in the table, as surprising as it is, they've played well enough to deserve it. On the other hand, I'm not so sure the snore-fest rags, plugging along and eking out results, deserve to be anywhere near the top of the table

In short, we are the architects of our own downfall. Given the quality of our squad, even with injuries, we should be beating the likes of Villa, and at least putting up a decent fight against the likes of mid-table Liverpool!

I'd argue that the visit of an in-form Southampton is the last thing we need at the moment. As always seems to be the case these days, the visitors will be eyeing a significant scalp, and will be quicker to every ball, win every 50-50 and never stop running. It is worrying that our players seem to be less motivated than many teams we come up against, just as it is worrying that our manager doesn't seem to be able to put a bit of fire in his players' bellies.

Hopefully the imminent return of the badly missed David Silva will be the tonic we need to start banging in the goals again, and his presence will take some of the heat off the out-of-form KDB and misfiring Stirling - whilst also providing a bit of service to a frustrated Sergio Aguero!

Still, I have an uneasy feeling about this game.

The questions:

Guess the attendance:

Predict the time of the first goal:

Name the first goal scorer:

Predict the correct scoreline:

Bonus:

There are 5 games in the Barclays PL at 15:00 on Saturday. I want to know how many of these games will be AWAY wins

Pick a number between 0 to 5, and if you get it correct you can have 5 bonus points. Wrong answers = 0, and no best guesses.

Happy predicting!
