I think Pep and City's dominance will only be good for the league in terms of raising the standard of football and forcing the chasing teams to match the quality they've set this season. They've just won 15 matches on the bounce and will probably go the season unbeaten. I think this is really sim...

I am just wondering will we ever see United play with out and out width anymore - even the wide players we have now seem like converted forwards/ midfielders who want to cut inside all the time. Is the fear of ceding possession so high that we can't afford to let numbers drop in the centre channels?
