I can see another Watford type game , where Palace miss a stack of chances but Arsenal scrape a win. If that happens, we know we are in trouble as we've seen it so often before from themActually can see Arsenal slipping up against palace off back of Napoli away Thursday. Palace actually have great away record.
Chelsea beating Utd would be an awful result for us, if they draw then we should be able to get away with 76-77 points allowing us for one more slip up after City.It's still so close. Tbh, we should've had this wrapped up by now, but we don't, so I won't waste time complaining about it!
Arsenal still got 3 away games, Wolves and Leicester can be real tricky, plus Arsenal have only won 6 out of 16 away games this season and didn't really show much against Watford.
A Chelsea vs Man U draw would be welcome. Though I think Chelsea will win their other three.
I can see United not win any of their next three, I definitely think they'll drop points against City.
Our games are tough to call. I think we'll beat Brighton and Bournemouth. Anything from City will be a bonus, West Ham will treat our match like a cup final and Everton are unpredictable.
It's gonna be painfully close... I hate this!!
If Utd beat City and Chelsea beat Utd and we lost to City, we will still be fine for 3rd providing we win all our remaining fixtures.If City win at OT and Utd beat Chelsea, 9 points should be enough to get us 4th. These are now the key games for us to follow( apart from our own). If they go the other way, I think we are in trouble.
I guess it's why we struggled until we had Kane come through the ranks. We then added Sonny and Dele who pop up with a decent amount as support strikers.Ultimately, the wealthier clubs can afford better attacking players, who can score goals, which is fairly difficult to do in football.
It's as simple as that, really.
That's why the clubs outside of the Top-6 struggle to finish in the top 6 spots and why attacking players are so expensive.
With our record in cup tournaments since 1991 I wouldn't put a single egg in that basket.Chance for genuine glory. 1 game from winning the biggest club competition. Think I would take my chances
Have faith. Other than the City game, we should win all our remaining games. And there's no certainty we'll lose against City. We have proven various times since they became a mega-money club that we can do them, as recently as last week.Yes, but I think we will drop some points. Maybe a couple of draws, maybe a loss and a draw.
I'm guessing, however, that players who were bought for £60+ million forced the defenders/goalkeeper into making mistakes, leading to those goals though?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.
Both of United's penalties were legit, especially the 2nd one. Player is through on goal and gets swiped from behind.I'm guessing, however, that players who were bought for £60+ million forced the defenders/goalkeeper into making mistakes, leading to those goals though?
On the other hand an extra two CL games will add to the fixture congestion in an already busy period. Admittedly we've overcome fixture congestion before but I'd worry about our midfielders playing so many games.The Bournemouth game being on a Monday is a bit of a pain. Another bonus of beating city in CL is that will be moved to Saturday 12.30.
