We don't tend to do well against Palace , but it's a must win.

Jumping on the Chelsea bandwagon for a week too. Liverpool's toughest game remaining.

Really looking forward to our game against Pool. I think we’ll be up for it.

Pressure on City if Liverpool beat Chelsea. This is the last game Liverpool could conceivably drop points in.
It"s pretty hard to win 9 straight, and logic says that they'll drop points somewhere along the line.

But like you, I can only see a Liverpool win in their last four. So if they beat Chelsea we'll have to go perfect. Which I can't see us doing.

I’m trying to recall the 2012 run in, how many games did City win a row to win the title? From memory was it 5? I recall United being approx 8 points ahead with 5 matches to play.

6 in a row to finish 11/12 and 5 in a row to finish 13/14.

Were out of the champions League by that stage in both seasons which I think will be a big difference this time around. Already on a 8 game streak in the league too, and while that shouldn't make a difference in any particular game only three or four sides (including us to be fair) have won 14 in a row before.

Thanks, and yes valid point about being out of the champions league in those season. I’d overlooked that. Your squad depth now however is as good as its ever been.

Arsenal won the 13 straight in 2002 to win the title, but otherwise yes it’s a very rare feat.

That’s my thinking, but I suppose football is football and nothing is cast iron. I think we let you down the other week. We really should have won that game against Liverpool. You got a second hand dose of being Spursy!
