They're all important, but this game could be hugely significant for several reasons:

1. We could be the first team to win 6 games in a row this season- and it would be the first time we've put a run like that together since 11-12
2. Arsenal or United will drop points- if the latter drops points (which is quite likely IMO), and we win, we'd surely have a gap big enough over them that even we couldn't fuck up. Although Southampton or West Ham (or both) could overtake them, and reduce the gap to 5th. If Arsenal drop points, and we win, we could be seen as having a better chance than them for the title (especially if we win the NLD next week)
3. Swansea at Home sounds like the exact sort of game we'd typically fuck up in.
4. We could be top of the league if we win and Leicester drop points.

Don't let me down, Spurs!

If we play like we did last night we'll win well plus we have a great record against Swansea.

We need to be focussed for this game. We can't take any premiership opposition lightly.
Except Villa. If I were in charge of the PA system at the Lane I'd be playing the Benny Hill theme music every time they had the ball (which admittedly would be a total of 30 seconds - and 20 of those would be their keeper retrieving the ball from his own net).

Now watch us lose to Villa.

Swansea have plenty of talent to make this really difficult for us.

Best thing that could happen for us leading up to the match would be a Leicester draw (don't think they'd ever lose to Norwich). If that happens, the players would all know a win would put us top in Goal Differential. I could see that being a huge motivator, and not a distraction/cause for anxiety, for this side.

Haven't had one of these feelings for quite some time but unfortunately I've got a really bad feeling about tomorrow (n)

Please let me be wrong.
