    When Leicester won the PL, Spurs came 3rd in a 2 horse race

    This season there's a decent chance they come 4th in a 3 horse race

    They are a #joke club

    Whether Man Utd appoint Solskjaer or Pochettino, next season is already #seasonover for them

    If you were doing a prediction today lads.

    What points tallys would you give for each club?

    Look at city first:

    only 5 homes games left but are almost unplayable at home. so thats got to be 4 wins and then what about spurs?

    Then there's 6 away games. of those: Bournemouth, utd, palace and burnely... those are not absolutely straight forward.

    I wish they were playing burnely away this week <laugh>

    In isolation you could say city could win every one of those but taken together you couldn't give city 11 wins there could you... is it 9-2-0, is it 8-2-1? I don't know.

    8-2-1 = 26 more points. 65+26 = 91 points.

    So how do LFc get 92?

    92-66 = 26 points as well = 8-2-1 record

    SO.. IN THEORY LFC only need win the non top 6 games

    The issues:

    1. watford on a great run right now and 7th
    2. everotn cup final and away
    3 burnely on a great run and being let away with murder by refs. (wheres the cards eh?)
    4. newcastle away near end.
    5. wolves playing decent, could be in fa cup final (i hope)



    IMO if we are going to win this we need to start right now this week and change the attitude and go for the wins.

    Looking at Citeh fixtures I can only see two games that might be 'tricky' for them, ManU and Palace away. And even then I'd still expect Citeh to win.

    But then there was Newcastle....

    Bournemouth away and palace away and no walkovers, they already lost to palace this season. Burnley away is tricky, but they should be safe by then. Brighton away last game, again could be fighting to stay up.

    Form goes out out the window at the end of the season where teams are fighting for their lives to stay up, and away at a team fighting with good crowd will never be easy game

    Tottenham next two games against Chelsea and Arsenal can determine if they are in or out of title race. They are London derbies.

    They are already out according to poch but they have always been in a false position.

    top 6 table doesn't lie.

    Spurs are bottom of it with utd. you can't do this and win the title. just can't.

    Tottenham have already lost seven games the maximum number of games lost by any past premier title winner.

    I don’t think the games against the top six that will necessarily determine the PL winner. Look at city most of their dropped points were against the so called lesser sides even we dropped points against West Ham and Leicester. It’s simple really whoever wins most of the remaining 1 games will lift the trophy. Won’t be spursy though

    If Spurs beat us and Man City?

    Very unlikely, but you can't rule it out yet.

    Problem you have is that teams fighting relegation become a different proposition toward the end of the season so Cardiff, Southampton and Newcastle become different games.

    What it could do though is mean that a draw isn’t enough and they have to go for the win which opens up the game a bit. I’d back us to beat anyone in the league when we go toe to toe with them. It’s the ones sitting back playing for a draw with 11 men behind the ball like yesterday which is where we struggle

    It can work out like that but it also means they don't give up and may cause problems later in the game. No idea really we'll just have to wait and see, Watford at home and 3 points are really needed.

    I suspect City will drop A MAXIMUM of 5 points between now and end of season. On the whole, they don't have a worse run-in than us... Games like Watford and Everton while we're on a poor run could cause us issues in the near term.

    Most likely they get a couple of draws and lose 4 points. I don't see City losing

    Realistically, to stand a chance we have to win almost every remaining game. Losing once isn't the end of the world... Lose twice, or tie on three and I think it's quite likely game over.

    Spurs still in it if both we and City have a poor run in.

    City are capable of winning all their games.

    Indeed. I see the 5 points as the best we can hope for, but they'll probably lose less than that.
