There are just 10 rounds of Premier League matches left in the 2017/18 season - and the battles at each end of the table are heating up. But who has the fixture list on their side?

Answer: Liverpool, with just 2 top 6 games left to play, and an easier run-in.
I'd prefer them to come 5th because missing out on CL football would damage their ability to retain/attract their better players, as it does to arsenal.
Losing the CL windfall is not such a big deal to Man U and the oil clubs.

To be precise, easiest run-in in order, according to the article:

1 Liverpool
2 Spurs
3 Man City
4 Man Utd
5 Chelsea

Could get a bit interesting for Chelsea. But the swing of the average opponent position is only 1.2 (12 for Liverpool, 10.8 for Chelsea), so not exactly much in it.

(And yes I'm not including Arsenal)

Can’t help feeling our match against Chelsea could be the crucial one. Eight wins and two draws would be a great finish but with all the other games will be hard to achieve

If we lose one of them out will be Chelsea. They will raise their game big time. Poch needs to keep them fighting and focused

I have the top six looking:

1-Man City - 99 pts
2-Man Utd - 81
3-Liverpool - 79
4-Spurs - 79
5-Chelsea - 75
6-Arsenal - 65

I have us drawing with Chelsea, so a win for either team in that game will have huge ramifications.

Would it?
If Chelsea won, in your example, then they would have 77pts, and us 78pts.
However if we won, then yes, we could go second, again, purely based on your predictions.
