Nervy end here

We've only won by 3 goals once this season.

Liverpool fan here.

Belated thanks for the City beating, though we seem to be doing our best to shoot ourselves in the foot.

All the best to you guys and Rafa. Don't see any chance of you going down at this point. Just hope you can get a better owner, and at least challenge a bit more.

Is there a rule I’m missing which says there’ll always be more time added on in the second half than in the first?

No goals in the second half, no major stoppages yet 5 minutes added on?

Too many defenders on now, inviting pressure with no outlet.

Terrific win. 9 points (maybe fewer...) to go. Rafa’s record in crucial games is incredible.
I had the first custom w***

Easier than I thought it would be. Burnley were poor, especially first half, but we look so much more threatening with the pace of Almiron and again Longstaff was composed and tidy.

Also nice to see Dummett channelling his (very, very, very) inner Aguero.
There is no sin except stupidity.

What?! Almiron off. No! Rondon looks f***ed. Almiron still has legs.
He's still showing legs, but have to remember the MLS playoffs ended in early November, so although he's shown good fitness, they still might be trying to ease him back in.

I think we're safe, not because of the points total, but because the team is playing so well right now I'm confident they will get enough points.

Burnley magnanimous in defeat which is nice.

Tbh I don't think we played fantastically in the second half but we defo did a job on them overall. A couple of nervy set pieces but we dealt with almost all the long balls they put in with ease. Great 3 points. Schar and Longstaff were fantastic and Almiron played well again, he was like the energised bunny!
