      Agreed.

      Massive April & May for us. Title gone, but top 4 is still up for grabs defo, everyone dropping points, if we can string a run of wins together we will climb the table pretty quickly.

      I think we’ll end up 3rd.. we have got our midfielders back in place & our young CB’s are doing are grand job.. just need our forward to take their chances..

      like to think so, as come April, we should really only have matip, gomez & VVD out injured.

      Might actually be able to see a game where Hendo, Fab & Thiago start in the same midfield during April. ;D

      Realistically 3rd is out of the question,we are 10 points off of Leicester and we need Chelsea,Spurs,WHU and Leicester all to drop points in the last 9 games!I think 4th is possible as Chelsea still have some hard games,i don't think WHU will last and as for Spurs they are hot and cold.I'd be very surprised if Leicester don't make top 4 as they look very solid and would need a major bad run of form, far worse than last season.

      We’re still in this. Other than City who look nailed on, pressure builds on the next three places to closer we get to the seasons end. Either of them are just a couple of injuries away from capitulation, and when you push that little bit harder, trying to secure every win, that’s when they are likely to occur.
      I still have the faith 😊

      So where are we at?

      With all respect to West ham I think its down to us Everton and Chelsea.

      I think Spurs just are not good enough.

      Chelsea have palace and west ham away before playing city, away. A home tie with Leicester which may or msy not mean something to both.

      Everton have spurs and Arsenal back to back before playing villa and west ham, and they finish away to city

      We have villa and leeds, tricky, and utd away before a run of games you think, on form, we win.

      Chelsea 51 points after 30
      Everton 46 points from 28

      Us 49 from 30.....

      PS not sure I can edit the ritle of the topic to top 4 race?

      Wolves have become very erratic, I thought they were ok'ish against us, but they were awful against West Ham. West Ham might actually become a bit of a problem, they just don't seem to be having a dip, f**king Lingard having the season of his life, can't stand that manc pr**k, his snide timewasting at the end, how on earth he wasn't shown a second yellow is beyond me.

      I predict

      Liverpool 69
      West ham 68
      Chelsea 65
      Everton 63
      Spurs 63

      We nick it. Think well come into form at the right time while the others will drop points when not expected, always goes that way.

      If we hit form I only see us dropping 2 points at utd and 2 at either Burnley or WBA, not both.

      We need Leicester and Utd to win today 🤮🤮. Its a means to an end. I think Spurs going to beat Utd, West have could well beat Leicester too, so this is going to be a close run in.

      Huh why do we need Leicester to win today? They are our direct competition for a top 4 place now.

      Chelsea have too much quality not to finish top 4 they will nick it for sure.

      We need Leicester to lose and go on a run of poor results to have any hope of finishing top 4.

      Draw between Leicester and West Ham and then we could do with United beating Spurs later on.

      West Ham are level on points with us and have a game in hand. We need them to drop points.
      Leicester are 4 points ahead with a game in hand.  We need to focus on getting ahead of Chelsea and hope Spurs  West Ham and Everton fall away.

      Yup these are the ideal results. Although I wouldn't mind West Ham beating Leicester as I think the hammers will fall away over the next few games with their injuries.

      I think Chavs will finish the season strongly. I'm more worried about Leicester than Spurs, West Ham or Bitters who will all definitely drop points.
