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 .
That’s not too likely. Arsenal and Chelsea have straightforward home games while we go to City. But even if those results go against us winning our last 4 winnable games will be enough whatever happens.
I cant see Man U picking up 12pts to be honest.
And Chelsea havent won 4 pl games on the bounce for ages so think youre about right there.
It would be typical Arsenal to go and win all their remaining games.
Agree we need 10pts.
I predict a shocking refereeing decision to hand Man U all 3pts v Chelsea.
Basically we just need to get the job done, which we should, and it wont matter.
Whilst every game is extremely important, looking at those fixtures the weekend that we play the Spammers and Utd and Chelsea play each other and Arsenal go away to Leicester looks to be absolutely pivotal. If we're still in the top 4 at the end of that it looks to be in our own hands, if we're playing catch up on at least 2 of those 3 we're in deep shit.....
10 pts surely be enough. United max is 79pts and Chelsea 78pts. And if they draw that goes down to 77 and 76. Hard to see that either will win all remaining games. Ideal is United beat Chelsea and lose to city. That makes it 76 and 75pts. Anything but a win for United at Everton and they are pretty much done.
Well, not really. Man Utd beat West Ham with 2 penalties and West Ham having a perfectly legitimate goal disallowed. Arsenal beat Watford because the Watford keeper decided to blast the ball of an Arsenal player and into his own goal.
Those win were absolutely nothing to do with the wealthier teams having superior attacking players.
