From any point of view, after a 7-2 drubbing, and a display that at times after the 30th minute and particularly in the second half was downright unprofessional and embarrassing, it very much is a must win game.We'll win this regardless of the team that Poch puts out. If it's the usual line up and formation, those players will want to redeem themselves from Tuesday and I can see us getting a 2-0 or 2-1 win. If however, Poch is brave enough to shake things up, change formation and drop the players whose minds are elsewhere, I can see us winning comfortably.
From a league point of view this is not a must win. We have picked up points away from home against City and Arsenal, and Leicester will upset other teams this season aswell. The Newcastle defeat is really the only one that imo has fucked things up, and we have plenty of time to make amends. Having said that, a win this weekend and next should put a spring in our step and set us up nicely against Liverpool at the end of the month.
