Does anyone have a touch of déjà vu ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Burnley? I know I do.

I don’t want sound like I’m an old fuddy – duddy, in fact I’ll step it up and say I don’t want to sound like I’m a mincer. But how many Blues can expect the Clarets boss Sean Dyche to come out and say, post-match that his player’s challenges were typical of English football and that no crunching tackles had any intent or malice whatsoever.

Will Sean Dyche end up defending the undefendable?

Yes, yes, I appreciate football is a physical game but…!

How many more City players will end up this weekend on the injury list – I believe there is seven at the last count.

Think about it?

The last couple of games against West Brom (Alan Pardew), Cardiff City (Neil Warnock) I could go on, all came out and defended (as one would expect) their respective players following horrendous challenges against City players. So, when the next City player ends up in hospital having surgery, or on Monday morning players have muscle / tendon remedial treatment then I’ll confidentially say, ‘I told you so.’

Will I be proven wrong?

Based on the season so far then I have to smugly say, ‘I doubt it.’

Come on CITY!
