Re: ARTICLE: Peacock-Farrell set for league debut

Erm less of the negativity “by how many” man!

We are in form side given City have drawn 2 and lost one of their last 4 with only a slim win over the bottom club. Scoring only 3 in the process.

I fancy us to at least draw.

As mentioned before they’ve just completed their millionth swap. However I agree with Homer above that it would be more difficult in the UK/Europe given the sheer amount of different manufacturers.

The way we play it’s really difficult to say one way or other.

Everton have conceded 4 more goals than us already this season but I’d wager that we’ve been put under far more pressure than they have.
