Re: Head to head with Man City

Seems our best results were in the first season with Sean in the Prem when we got relegated 2014-15. I'll settle for the thumping, if it means we stay up.

Ultimately, it's how well you defend in the Prem that will determine whether you stop up or not.

If you keep a clean sheet you are guaranteed at least a point and possibly all three....
