    Sunderland


    Watford is our only EPL fixture left in February.

    We also play St Etienne twice in the EL, Southampton in the CC final and Blackburn in the FA Cup.


    We should be looking for no less than 17 points in my opinion. We've got a tough run in after this.

    Win all 7 of them. Otherwise, I am afraid that no UCL for us next season (unless we win Europa).

    In the final 7 matches we have to play Chelsea at home, Arsenal, Spurs and City away. Four very difficult matches, so we should get all the points in these 7 matches if we want to get to UCL.

    Let's start putting the ball in the next and get the full 21 points. I will even accept 19 points.

    After these games we still have to play Chelsea (H), Arsenal (A), Spurs (A) and City (A), so we really need to make the most of these 7 winnable games.

    17-19 points would be nice.

    Everytime these type of threads arrive it always jinxes us. So I think we will drop points in a couple of these games as per...

    Can probably afford to drop two points from those seven games. But, I'd be pretty disappointed if one of those seven teams were to end our unbeaten run in the league.

    I think we need to have some sort of cushion heading into the tricky away games against Arsenal, Spurs and City. That'll allow Mourinho to be pragmatic if needs be.

    Everton are no mugs either. I really wouldn't be cocky going into that game.

    United has to stay focused. We have a lot of cup games. The potential is their for a great season but as we seen with the dippers one disaster week we could have nothing to play for.

    We need to take it a game at a time and forget about who we play the game after next or the next 7 games for that matter.

    Soton game will be postponed if we beat Blackburn. I'm dreading April and May. Away to Arsenal, Spurs and the postponed City match (which will likely be a midweek game), postponed Soton away game as well, plus possible FAC and EL knockouts.

    We have to lay the platform for top 4 in Feb-March.

    You know there's at least 2 slip ups in there. I reckon we'll get 12-15.

    Wouldn't have it any other way. Meanwhile Liverpool fans are celebrating that they only have 15 games in the next 200 days so that their Gangnampressers get enough rest.

    We drew three in a row after people predicted us to take 30 points out of the next 10 games and nothing less than 27 points was acceptable!

    Have to win all home games. Away at Southampton will be tough. We are a much better team than Middlesbrough so should win there. We have better players than Sunderland but they have a much superior manager so it'll be close.

    Watford look to be entering good form. Bournemouth, Southampton have some of the worst in the league.

    The Hull result really fecked things up, if you can't beat bottom of the table at home then anything can happen in those games. On paper they look winnable but we are struggling for goals (weekend aside) we need to finish teams off.

    We've drawn, lost and beaten Hull in one season despite the gulf in talent, also lost to Watford and failed to beat Burnley and Stoke, form doesn't count for much in the Prem and especially with this United Team. If we haven't scored by the first half, expect a torrid and frustrating time.

    We have dropped enough against Hull and Stoke those were must win games.

    Simply can't afford to drop anymore in those 7 games. It will have to be 7 wins and 21 points. If we manage that we will have a decent shot at top 4 if manage to not lose all those matches at the end of the season versus Chelsea, City, Arsenal and Spurs.

    I think you need a minimum 6 wins, which would be the best form you've been in all season. Then you've probably got to back that up with more steady form alongside 1 or 2 really good results in the head to heads with other CL chasers. Hell of a task on paper.

    We'll beat Arsenal comfortably at the Emerites. Its ripe for a Wenger bottle job.

    I was just thinking the same. I think we will beat City as well. Chelsea and Tottenham will be a struggle though.

    Anyone know when City game will be played?

    Hope they don't leave it until the end of April so we've got City, Arsenal and Spurs away games in a short space. Need the City game out of the way asap

    Where are you getting this confidence from?

    I wouldn't back us for a win considering our track record this year against top 6 teams. Also, Arsenal are usually great toward the end of the season (I.e. when it is too late). On current form the game would probably be a 1-1 draw.

    It doesn't have to be 21 points. 17 will have us in a nice position. Everyone gets carried away with needing to win every game, as if our rivals won't be dropping points too. You already pointed out that we didn't win 2 "must win" games. So they weren't really must win games at all, they were "would be really handy if we win" games.

    I don 't think people realise just how bad the fixtures will be for us. Big risk we will spread ourselves too thin and end up with sweet fa.

    Mourinho is planning on using the full squad. It will be tough, but I would rather be in all the cups than out of them.

    18-21 would be nice. I'd snap take 18 now even though we would lose our unbeaten league run.

    21 points.

    We'll be in 2nd, and I fancy us to beat City, Spurs and Arsenal away as well.

    I guess there is a FA Cup replay date somewhere that could work (if we beat Blackburn) but with us playing EL and City CL, it’s going to be interesting to see when our City and So’ton (if we beat Blackburn) matches will be played.
