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.
Utd are going to have to beat Chelsea or City in addition to their other fixtures just to get to 76.
Arsenal are the biggest threat. They have winnable games on paper. Just need to hope their poor away form continues and Wolves/Leicester/Burnley do us a favour. Palace will give them a game at the weekend too but I expect they'll win that one. They can probably afford to drop points in 2 games to get top 4. That jammy win last night was huge for them. I think we'll need at least 10 more points to finish above them.
I think if we come out of City/Brighton/West Ham with 6-7 points then we might be able to seal top 4 at Bournemouth, but placing against Arsenal probably goes to the last day. We just need to hope for no more injuries. Main thing is it's in our hands, even with City coming up. We can afford a loss at City if we win our last 4, but need to avoid a large defeat for GD purposes.
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.
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.
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.
