Haven't factored in things like CL/EL games, which could have a big impact on teams. I have considered whether teams will have something to play for in the later games though.
Can see Palace and West Ham being really up for their visits to the new WHL, wanting to be the first team to beat Spurs there. While neither will be successful in my prediction, both will take points.
Arsenal have mainly teams with little to play for. The race for 7th may add a bit of spice to some games, and teams with little to play for can play without pressure so could be tricky.
Man Utd have a tricky run of 3 fixtures, away to Everton then home to City and Chelsea. That could be decisive.
Chelsea have a fair few games against teams likely to have nothing to play for, and should have a strong finish. A couple of defeats early in this run in may leave them focusing on Europe, but that can be said about all 4 if Arsenal progress tomorrow.


8 games where there could be a few twists and turns. You wouldn't rule out United and Chelsea finishing outside the top 4 but winning the 2 European titles between them - making it a fight for 3rd between the NLD teams. That would be fun.

You're suggesting that Arsenal are going to win 3 of their 5 remaining away games when they've managed only 5 away wins all season.

Yes.

We have played 14 away. Won 5, drawn 4, lost 5. But we have played away against all of the rest of the top 6.
Our record away to non top 6 teams is Won 5, drawn 2, Lost 2.
None of the teams we are away to have particularly brilliant home records.
Don't think it is s stretch to say we could win 3, draw 1 and lose 1 of the remaining 5.

But most people expected Spurs, with an away record of 11 wins and 1 loss prior, to beat Saints, Chelsea, Palace and Burnley away.

Watford (H) 3

Brighton (H) 3

Total points 16


thus:

6 - Chelsea 73 (probably will be less as they will be focused on Europa league route to qualify for CL)
5 - Man United 78
4 - Arsenal 78
3 - Tottenham 80

please note: 76 points for 4th was a record we set. I don't really expect 4th to need 78 points

this says it'll be close but nobody is looking at utd poor GD relative to arsenal's and that could be critical

No reason would shouldn't take all 24 points IMO.

Our away form has been poor but it was similar to 2012/2013, we only won 5 away games from August- early March, then we ended up winning our last 5 away games of the season, winning 3 at home and 2 draws at home and we finished 4th 1 point above Spurs.
I think we need to aim to get at least 20 points from 24, of course it will not be easy at all but it is achievable and realistic!
