Re: Which home advantage do teams have in Covid times? nt.
Its not just about the crowd, its about the dimensions of the pitch and just feeling more comfortable on familiar turf. You must remember even playing at Sunday League level, playing on your own pitch felt way more comfortable and easier than playing on an away pitch?
Against ANY team. That is exactly the tactic the away team will do to us, and it will either make for a very boring 0-0 draw or put us in the lottery for a 1-0 win or loss based on a single individual error. All the best teams look to capitalise their home advantage and we should be ambitious enough to do the same regardless of the opposition.
I'm going to go for two home wins. Leicester are in great from but with Vardy missing they are slightly weaker and I think we'll be happy to let them come on to us, remain hard to break down and take our chances on the counter.
We should be able to take care of Newcastle so we'll no doubt slip up. I've seen them a few times recently and they are very poor. Saint-Maximin back for them is a boost but he'll surely need games to get up to speed.
I sincerely hope Anceloti is making it clear what a great opportunity we have this season. There's a long way to go but if we are serious about Top 4 we need to get on unbeaten runs again to keep us moving forward and the confidence levels up.
