    The other team’s fixtures also went in our favour this weekend. Apart from a much needed win, every team below us tonight, with the exception of Brighton, either lost or drew.

    That’s a double win for us.

    A good 3 points at Bournemouth is needed now.

    Shame for my fantasy team as I've been planning to put him in as he's being played in a more advanced role now which suits him. Hopefully he's back soon anyway. After the Utd game of course.

    14th place today and guaranteed 15th if we lose tomorrow at home to Brighton.

    There are only 6 points between 5th and 17th and the relegation places are only 3 points behind that. At the end of tomorrow, if Villa win, there’ll only be 4 points between 5th and 17th.

    A home win against Brighton would push us up to 7th, just a point behind the hapless Arsenal, but still only 8 points clear of relegation.

    Bringing the “next 5” up to date....

    Brighton H
    Sheff Utd A
    A Villa H
    Spurs. H
    City. A

    My prediction, 2 wins, 1 draw & 2 losses.

    I said in the 6 games before the derby we needed a bare minimum 12 from the 18 points for Ole to still be here. We took the first 3 at Norwich, slipped at Bournemouth. We need the 3 points today - anything but and Ole's on thin ice. Its crazy to think that with the exception of Norwich, all of those teams are above us in the league at the minute.

    Looks like we are both on the same run. :D

    Call me crazy but I think we might win at City away. We are perfectly set up to play counter attack against the better teams and our results reflect that.

    I also think they will be as good as out of the title race by that game. Can see them losing today and dropping another 2-3pys before the Derby so Liverpool will be as good as champions elect. Think they will turn their attention to winning their first CL trophy.

    We've won there recently. It's not that silly. Derby games can be unpredictable.

    I honestly don't think City look that great either. If they were to close the gap on Liverpool between now and the Derby then I will say they will probably beat us. However I don't think they will close it. I think they will fall further behind because without Laporte and Ederson they are there for the taking.

    Not disagreeing with any of that, I just have a really hard time having any sort of optimism regarding this United team.

    Depending on how many players we get back from injury after International break we could put 10/11 more Points on the board from the next 5 games.
    3 wins 2 draws --- or 3 wins 1 draw and a loss.

    I feel that way about today's game. We have done better this season against the better teams. Still unbeaten against Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea twice.

    Same. I think we will struggle and went for a 1-1 in the predictions.
