11 goals from three games after that debacle at Old Trafford. Pretty decent reponse.

Tottenham play on Friday so important to ignore the noises that will undoubtedly spout out from their direction for 3 days temporarily being 1 point behind us.

They're obviously all massive games left now and we should be looking to win all 4 of them. We can afford one slip but it's not about that, it's about us going out there and doing what we've been doing all season long.

Middlesbrough will of course be desperate for a win as they're practically relegated on the night if they don't, but that's not our problem and I hope we do a real number on them.

This game worries me a little bit as when ever I have seen Boro they have been fairly solid, while they have a decent striker up front in Negrado. To be honest, I think there are three worse sides than them in the league. Consequently, I reckon an early goal is really important as overwise this is going to be nervy.

Spurs have nine PL wins in a row. And it ended in the north London derby. Mark my words. West Ham will steal a point from them, so we will have the chance to all but seal up the title with our game on Monday.

Hull play Sunderland before this game - if they win, Middlesborough will be down, bar a goal difference miracle, before we play them. I dont know whether that is a good thing or a bad thing for us anymore. We just have to stay very focussed.

Yes, it's the old dilemma: will they make it difficult for us because they're still fighting to stay up or because they're already doomed and therefore playing with no pressure!

Even if is a draw, Middlesborough will need to beat us, which means no playing for a 0-0 which is often a worry with the smaller teams.

 

5-0 like in 1996 when Peacock got a Hat trick
