Team we should fear most in top 4 race?

As it stands we are in 6th place on 30 points, 12 points behind Leicester in 2nd, and 11 behind City in 3rd. Both with far superior goal difference to any team below them. Perhaps I'm getting ahead of myself but I believe those 2 will finish top 4 which leaves one last spot.

Who out of the rest of the candidates do you think stands in our way most?

Chelsea? They're 5 points ahead, though in inconsistent form. Look to me the most likely team to spend in January to strengthen their squad.

Man United? 1 point ahead. Again in inconsistent form but have seen something of a recent resurgence and have Pogba back along with forwards in good form. May well spend too.

Wolves? Level on points. Other than Leicester this season, they've been the best of the rest outside of the top 6. Too soon for them to break into the top 4 what with Europa on their plate as well? Deserve to be mentioned alongside the usual top 6 now as candidates given how good they've been.

Sheff United? 1 point behind. Having an exceptional first season back in the PL. Probably too much to ask to get to as high as top 4 but you never know.

Arsenal? 6 points behind. Included because they have been a top 6 team up to now. New manager with early signs they are looking a bit better. Can he get them to go on the winning run they'd need to to get top 4? Very unlikely given how far back they are.

Do you think with our own problems we'll finish top 4? Mourinho has come out and said that we will but he said that before the loss to Chelsea and draw to Norwich.

Pogba back could be as much a hinderance as it could be a help...

Showing energy and desire is great but if you don't win games, it's useless in the end. All that effort for nothing. We should have got at least 2 wins from Bournemouth, Everton and Chelsea, yet we've ended up with 0.

You don't have a very good team, neither do spurs anymore. We have got away with some points we shouldn't have got, which has been the only difference for points between the teams.

Chelsea will have an advantage when they get knovked out of the CL by Bayern as well.

Fancy us (Utd) to get 4th.
We are a bit inconsistent at moment but starting to look a bit better.

Fixture congestion will fack us up. Barring a couple of good signings in January, our lack of quality and depth will cost us top four (and the manager).

I also think once this season is over, if Everton, Leicester and Wolves can strengthen correctly, they have plenty of potential to challenge the Big Six and all could well be considered good shouts for a potential CL spot.

Everton are miles behind a top four spot. Leicester and Wolves both having good runs, but not likely to keep it up over a long period, they have no real pressure on them, like the so called other big clubs.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah they are as of right now, but they have the money and the manager so no reason why come the summer they can't have a squad as good as Wolves and Leicester, particularly if they keep performing well.

What do you class as a long period? Half of the season has gone and Leicester are very well placed and Wolves are well in the hunt as well and the latter have played a ridiculous amount of games? True a bit of fatigue might set in towards the end of the season, that's also why I said January recruitment's will be crucial to see where clubs will finish at the end of the season.

United have already missed out on Haaland with him moving to Dortmund as well.

Spurs still have some very good players Kane, Dele, Son, Moura, Eriksen, N'dombele etc, the way some of our fans are talking, like Spurs are bottom three.

That's what I'm saying sandy. Going forward we have arguably 3rd best in the division. Ndombele an incredible talent. In the modern game you cannot be a great team with the full backs and lack of midfield spurs now find themselves having. Luckily for us United and Arsenal no longer have great sides and Chelsea are a newly assembled side with their young players and manager. This is why we are seeing Leicester and wolves in the mix as well but take nothing away from them they are great footballing sides with some brilliant players.

United, arsenal and chelsea now their ban is lifted will all spend, could leave spurs behind if we dont invest wisely

Teams that we should fear , all of them , no easy games in the prem. We need to install a hate everyone approach at Spurs show no week team mercy as for teams like Liverpool,City, they may beat us but at least make sure they know they've had a game none of this rolling over shat.
