Is it just me but this season our away form in the league is not much good compared to last two seasons?
Away results:

2015/6: won 9, drew 7, lost 3 - 1.79 points/game
2016/7: won 9, drew 6, lost 4 - 1.74 points/game
2017/8: won 7, drew 3, lost 4 - 1.71 points/game

Not a lot in it, really.

After this weekend Liverpool play twice before our next league game. It’s this stage of the season where timing of fixtures start to have an impact.

With regards our chances, win 7 out of our last 9 and we’ll do it. Of course prolonged CL and FA Cup participation for any of the clubs can also impact
If they don't win both of those then I think they will start to feel the pressure. For some reason I just think that if they lose a couple of games it might go to their heads

As it stands, we don't have another home game until the 14th April against Man City. Its weird to think that the league might be over by then.

would be so karmaful to finally beat them at Nuremberg cement our place in the Champs League and dump them into the Europa League :)

If we don't have a replay against Swansea, do you think the Newcastle game will be squeezed in on the 11th?

Am I right in thinking of ARSEnal one the European league cup and we finish 4th. That they would knock us out of the CL spot! ( how that would change ARSEnal and Spurs look on the season)

No, sounds like an Arsenal fan is winding you up, ignore them

Although if Chelsea win the CL , Arsenal win the EL and we finish 4th ahead of both I am not sure what will happen, but all 3 of those scenarios doubtful as we'll finish 2nd in the league and neither of those will win those tournaments
