4 games until the end of February 2 away then 2 at home
In any other season we would say difficult games especially now as slippyG is after revitalizing Villa, its also away so a point would be a decent result as i cant see too many getting off the treatment table in the next 16 days.
Everton are a shambles but are firmly up against it and if it was ER id be saying this is very winnable but at Goodison they will be fired up by Big Duncan. The probability stats have this as 40% everton win, 32% Leeds win & the draw is 28%, again id take a point if im honest.
Then to our 2 home games
first Manure on the 20th Feb. ManU must play 6 games in Feb (an FA Cup against boro and the first leg of the round 16 in the CL Ath. Madrid on the 23rd) so what will Rangnick be thinking? I've no doubt he will have to make some changes regardless of their results as he has lots of egos to childmind in that dressing room, so that may help us, i don't think leeds ever fear manu at ER, and if we had a full deck to pick from id have every confidence in our lads to pin the red filth back and make life extremely difficult for them. Problem we face especially at manu they come out of the blocks very very quickly try to a) silence the crowd and b) drive straight down the pitch where we don't have any spare man to halt any progress as we always set up 1 on 1, so once they get through any player its open space until the penalty area, i hope we put Pascal in front of our centre backs to counter act this treat but MB wont change and his philosophy of attack attack will be the order of the day. Tough one to call especially as we don't know the availability of players but im sure VAR will certainly have some involvement (and not to our benefit)
Spurs have 5 games in Feb but they too are trying to hunt down 4th spot but play city on the 19th Feb (away) so assuming they lose that game they will have to bounce back at ER on the 26th, but again spurs are fragile and like west ham can be got at. Of the 4 games we play in Feb, believe it or not this is the one that i can see us winning.
5 points from 12 would you take it?
