      As the points stand now 5 points seems to flatter us in that I believe City will end the season with a better GD than we will.

      If that is the case we can afford to lose 1 game now if City win every game from here on in.

      A defeat and a draw from us could result in City taking the league on GD.

      It's a very small 5 point lead in that respect.

      I think we will win our next 2 but if City keep pace with us I have to question how we will handle the pressure as a whole club after seeing some of the nervy scenes on and off the pitch against Leicester.

      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.

      Interesting, its obviously a very rough calculation and doesn't take into account dips in form and trends etc but using that calculation we should end up with 96 points, Citeh 88 and Spurs 85, that would mean we win with a couple of games in hand, yes please I'd take that! :-)

      In reality anything can happen but I simply cannot imagine that any of those 3 will go unbeaten to the end and if they do then they fully deserve the title, I have high hopes that when we get our main defenders back we will regain our defensive solidity again and our attackers are more up to speed now than at the start of the season plus we now have Fabinho fully integrated with Keita coming along so it should all be good.
      I still fancy us to win but its important we keep or increase the gap to Citeh, I'm not sure how well we'd do if we are under pressure and slip behind.

      With 14 games to go including this weekend, you have to ask yourself whether City can win of all of theirs - something that looks unlikely this season.

      Id say somewhere in the region of 10/11 wins will be enough to get us over the line.

      The Walker tweet can only motivate us even more. Nothing better than someone making it personal. It will help us. Cheers Kyle.

      I think if we beat City and Leicester, we'd be 13 points clear instead of 5. 5 points is wide open, hopefully Arsenal can beat them and we can go 8 clear if we beat west ham.

      And if we'd won every game we'd be 16 points clear

      we dropped 11/72 points. Must be around 15% as a guess. If we carry on the same we'll drop around 17/114 and have 97 points at the end. Is that enough?

      Lets hope Rafa can do a number on Spurs...least the two divers Kane and Dele the Diver are still on the sick.

      I don't like Pochettino, he knows a bit to much for my liking. He doesn't overload the team with tactics, plays attacking football.Lets the players ply their trade. Get the spirit in the camp right, motivation. Given enough money he will make Spurs a force for the foreseeable future.

      Spurs have lost 6 times already, they aren’t winning the title.

      There still over 40 points to play for. Spurs keep getting late late winners so now there on our coat talis too. This league will go right to may. For me there are no favourites. Liverpool and City are panicking already. The supporters should dampen down expectations putting pressure on players. Still think city will win it unfortunately. I hope I'm wrong. Spurs are winning now very late each match n Ali n kane will soon be back.

      Look there 42 points up for grabs. The league will not be decided till May. Spurs won again another winner in last few minutes now only 4" behind. These muppets saying oh were guna win league same ones said we were guna win League under Rodgers 4points up 3to play and still didn't. Same with CL final we were supposed to have won before the final. Pipe down. This pressure saying we're going to win is getting down to the players. One game at time. Anyone of city spurs or us can win this.

      Points?

      96 would be fab of course but if it has to be .... then it just has to be one more than second place.

      Just like to throw in the mix that if Stevie were also to get the Gers over the line and win the title up North then it would be be perfect.
      He may not have won the title and a medal with his club of life but he will also be there in spirit with us on the last day of the season.

      To stuff Rodgers would be extra special for us and him.

      34 more points guarantees us the League.

      12 consecutive wins doesn't guarantee City the League.

      Best season points wise since ‘87-88 (our best ever) I think mate and only one point off at that.

      Well hasn't got off to best of starts. Spurs have won despite getting totally outplayed. Leicester could have had a hateful. Much the better side. Please please chelsea do us a favour. I'm. Surprised William not playing for them.

      Going to lock in 94 as my choice.

      That was a 40 game season as well mate. So this could very well turn out to be our best 38 game season, both points wise and trophywise. (currently stands at 86 from 08-09)
