If we get past Schalke and Swansea we'll have between 11 and 16 matches to play in 6 weeks from after the international break to the end of the season.

If that happens it's going to be a real struggle fitting matches in, and I reckon it makes us a certainty to drop points in the run home.

Makes Bournemouth a must win imo, and a favour from Everton tomorrow would be nice as well.

I see Utd vs City rescheduled for end of April. Hopefully Utd are still in a battle for top 4 by that stage. Should they fall out of contention I dont see them getting a result against City with nothing at stake.

Don’t think we’re, or Ole, is the type to just pack it in for the season. Never want to lose, top 4 hopes gone or not we will play to win.

Liverpool have certainly shit the bed since Christmas and i think theyve thrown away the league once again.

City shouldnt bottle it from here.
We never had the league to start with. 3 of the games since then (City / United / Everton away) are fixtures where we have won twice in total over the last 6-7 years. So it was not surprising at all to drop points in those fixtures.

The other 2 draws did hurt us (West Ham / Leicester) but those sorts of results are unavoidable over a season.

To be within one point of City at this stage is a good effort in itself, I thought the league would have been done and dusted by mid March for them at the start of the season.
