We may find ourselves in a position where we have to beat bournemouth away to remain above the goons, hopefully we will have some confidence going into that game because our away form hasn't been the best & i can't see it improving before that game
if you had said our away form of late hasn't been great I could understand that. before Burnley, Chelsea and Southampton we had the best away form in the league

That’s a bit of a blow, Arsenal getting three points tonight. Only consolation is that being gifted a goal and playing 10 for 80-odd minutes they still looked very unconvincing.

It's the second to last set of fixtures that worry me. I think we'll beat Everton comfortably, personally. Bournemouth away is potentially quite a tricky game though.
We always tend to have a pretty complete control of midfield against them. They do have some dangerous forwards, but surely they’ll be on the beach by then?

If we win our home games, notwithstanding a massive swing in goal difference, Chelsea would need to win all 4 remaining games and Utd would need 4 wins and a draw from their last 5 to finish above us.

I’m confident that 3 wins will be enough.

Chelsea and Utd vs West Ham

Arsenal and Utd vs Watford

Arguably outplayed in all 4 games and yet all somehow won. Sucks but it's still in our hands, which is the main thing. Hopefully we have our fair share of good luck along the way too.

I really hope so. It would be nice to go into the game knowing a win would be enough to guarantee top 4 as opposed to going into it knowing a win is required just to stay in with a decent chance.

Gifted a goal and a man advantage and they still only scraped through, they will have to work harder to get results in the coming fixtures. I am actually more confident after that game than I was before and I was already one the most upbeat ones on here .

Im more worried about finishing above the goons then i am about Chelsea & United finishing ahead of us, would be a disaster to let them finish above us
