After tonight’s win against Arsenal we’ve given ourselves a good shot of getting back into the top 4. City have won the league and United are in a good position to finish in the top 4, if not necessarily 2nd. But the other teams from Leicester down to Everton are still in the mix, I feel.
The remaining fixtures for and between these sides are interesting, particularly the prospect of teams taking points off each other.
Chelsea are currently in 4th on 51 points with 8 games left so that will be my starting point. Here are the remaining number of games for the teams from 3rd to 8th and their fixtures against the top 8.
Leicester +6pts 8 games left
West Ham, United, Chelsea, Tottenham
Chelsea 0pts 8 games left
West Ham, City, Leicester
Liverpool -2pts 8 games left
West Ham -2pts 9 games left
Leicester, Chelsea, Everton
Tottenham -3pts 9 games left
United, Everton, Leicester
Everton -5pts 10 games left
Tottenham, West Ham, City
That’s some good potential there for teams in and around us to take points off each other.
