How to secure top 4?

With just a handful of games left of the season and with todays result our chances of finishing in the top 4 have improved.
There are three teams who can mathematically overtake us in the race for one of the CL spots; All have played 31 games, leaving 21 available points from the 7 remaining games:

Tottenham 64pts + 21 = 85pts
Chelsea 56pts + 21 = 77Pts
Arsenal 51 pts + 21 = 72pts
Burnley 46pts + 21 = 67pts

To get to 78points and guarantee our place we would need to average 2 points per game from now until the end of the season, and this is where I think we will get them from:

Stoke (a) – 1pt
They are in a relegation battle and will have nothing to lose
Man City (h) – 0pts
Hopefully the league would have been won by then, but I still don’t fancy us having much of a chance.
Brighton (a) – 1pts
They will be in the mix for relegation and will try to defend their position
Watford (h) – 3pts
Their season will be over by then
West Brom (a) – 3pts
Will already be relegated
Newcastle (h) – 3pts
Not sure when this game is rescheduled for but they will probably be safe by then
Leicester (h) – 3pts
They will probably have nothing to play for

I’m still deluding myself for second place and expect us to take 18 out of the 21 points, I have tailored my predictions to get us to the 78 we need – with these certain facts you should head off to the bookies and put a 7 game accumulator on.


How do you think we will achieve the 14 required points?

A team that is unbeaten since Mid December, having outplayed United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea along the way, is hardly likely to be dropping points at Stoke and Brighton.

You facking old caant if we had finished our chances first half you would never had a chance second half. First half we had 70-80% possession of the ball. We tired second half and if the anorexia player didn't dive we would have won.

You had zero chances, only 2 dives and a one in a life time shot which went in.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So bitter, you were outplayed and fortunate to pick up a draw, even your comprehensive delusion won`t change that.

For me that’s top 4 secured now although unofficially.

Ideal scenario for me would see bin dippers out of cl and top 4

Their arrogancy is off the scale, specifically towards us the unbeaten side in the premier league.

The Mohammed team!

Without him, they would have never won the weekend game!

The referee is their most important player

Well we had around 54% possession first half, so....
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Well your fellow compatriot, the Mane Man is talking nonsense then, he reckons Liverpool had 79-80% possession. No wonder everybody laughs at you scousers. Everybody who watched that match knows that Liverpool had a tad more possession first half, and were comprehensively overrun second half, when the only shot Liverpool had second half was the goal by Salah.

Anyway, why has this once article been hijacked by bitter Liverpool supporters once again? Cano you lot not post on any article without making it somehow a Liverpool article, and how badly you are done by?

Spurs supporters have long since moved on from that match, your lot are still grizzling about penalties and dives. Get over yourselves.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He is talking nonsense, in the same way you claiming we were comprehensively outplayed over 90 mins is nonsense. We were the better team first half, you were the better team second half.

Wish Admin would wake up and purge some of the waster posters on here. 3 or 4 each from the main boards, the ones who generally seek to derail every article with stuff barely if at all linked to the actual topic of discussion

I deliberately this article in a way to avoid any conflict with other supporters and to allow people to discuss how we think our run in will pan out by highlighting the facts of mathematically securing top 4.

I now realise I should have just wrote "all Liverpool fans are massive Caants" to save their embarrassment of posting off topic on an article which has absolutely fack all do with them. Had their comments been on topic or even slightly amusing I wouldn't mind, other view points are always welcome,

This is why people just give up posting anything but wum articles - too many Caants.

If only there was a competition to identify who the biggest Caants on JA606 were
