      Don't fool yourself. City can start a winning streak any time. They lost their games by freak incidents. We on the other hand took advantage of freak incidents (Pickford, Mahrez penalty, Sturridge goal). That can change any day. And injuries can happen as well. It's still wide open, it's just that now we got a real shot, I'd think our odds are about 55-45...still 14/15 games to play, that's a hell lot of football left. So let's begin today with 3 points against Leicester and go from there.

      They raised the bar last season, but they are playing more matches than we are, so expect them to lose some more, 95 points or even less could win it.

      Haven't got a clue what points we'll end up with - I'm saying the same as I have been to anyone asking about our chances - I'm quietly confident.

      I reckon we'll drop a max of 8 points, I can see us losing a game and having a few draws, but I also see Citeh losing a few games so we should be fine but who knows.

      First things first just win today, that is extremely important to pile pressure and misery on Citeh.

      There was no 'freak incident' last night vs Newcastle.

      95; should do it. 11 wins, 2 draws, 2 defeats, with hopefully one after we've locked it up.

      Every year, the contenders who don't win, don't because they drop points to lower teams.

      I'm not really one for this forecasting malarkey, so one point more than the 2nd place team would suit me fine.

      Lucky i read the thread before posting. Exactly what i was thinking. How apt would it be if we were to win our first Premier League with that number of points? That would be the ultimate for me.

      That would mean everything.

      They lost their games by freak incidents.

      They didn't lose last night from freak incidents.  They lost last night because Newcastle had two shots at goal.

      I do not give a sh*t about points. We need just one point above everyone. I would be happy if it is 105, 96, 85, etc We just need to win 14 out of 15 games and we're fine.

      Need just thirteen now.

      That's what I call 'freak' because usually two shots at goal a not two goals.

      Extrapolate the current situation mathematically and we get 90 points to win it. 56 points / 24 games x 38 games = 89 points.

      Halfway mark 44 points / 19 games x 38 games = 88 points.

      Get to 90 points with a few games to spare and we're in with a fighting chance.

      Of course this is all based on historical data for this season. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.

      These are City’s next 3 fixtures..Anyone that think they cannot drop points against these 3 need to give their head a wobble..they have also a cup final & CL to think about too..

      3 games in 7 days will take its toll..

      Sunday 3rd February
      Arsenal

      Wednesday 6th February
      Everton

      Sunday 10th February
      Chelsea

      We just need to keep our focus..

      I think we will have an unassailable lead when we hit 96 points. We will have it won then, but will continue to overhaul their total of 100 points last season.
      That’s my dream anyway 😁

      I think there are going to be a few more bumps with us and City both dropping unexpected points. Both teams are capable of winning all their remaining games but I think it’s unlikely.

      94 points will do it I think.

      Just win every game until the League is ours and then win some after that as well.

      This is the only way to go,just carry on winning matches and let City do the worrying.
