No point in getting the graphs etc out until after a few games or so but here's a reminder of the way we analyse how difficult each game isTitle Target (87 points)
Win your 15 easiest games at home. Draw your hardest 4 (Last seasons top 4).
Win your 11 easiest games away. Draw your next hardest 5 (For us, last seasons 5th to 9th) . Defeated at your hardest 3 (Top 3).
P38 W26 D9 L3 Pts 87
A current score of 0 or above suggests you are on course for the title - below that suggests you are outside title form.Top Four Target (70 points)
Win your 12 easiest games at home. Draw your next hardest 5 . Defeated by hardest 2 teams
Win your 8 easiest games away. Draw your next hardest 5. Defeated at the hardest 6.
P38 W20 D10 L8 Pts 70
A score of 0 or above suggests you are on course for a top 4 spot - below that suggests you are outside top 4 form.
And after the first round of games
Liverpool's result at Watford was poor, starting the season with -2 in both the title and top four chase.
Chelsea's was worse - losing to Burnley was a -3 in both the title and top four chase.
Not a great start for us and them.
Everton, United, City, Spurs and Arsenal all got expected results on the opening day so remain on 0 (on track).
It's not a great start for Liverpool because we didn't actually fall into negative figures last season (for the title) until after matchday 14. And the reds will remain in negative figures after our the second game because they are expected to beat Crystal Palace so no chance to gain analysis points.
