We have 12 games left , Newcastle 12, Spurs 11, Brighton 13 and Liverpool 12.

We have 6 home, 6 away with Newcastle, Spurs, Brighton, West Ham, Forrest and Bouremouth away. With Fulham, wolves, Chelsea, Brentford, Villa and Everton. If we had a true number 9, Martial fit and reliable , Eriksen, Casemeiro, Sabitzer all available for every game I’d be confident, our GD is shocking and loses the club a point. We need to win 3 away games, Draw 2 and lose 1 preferably to Brighton if anyone then at home we must win 5 out of 6, the saints result was awful and puts us in the mix if we finish with 8 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat we end on 77 points that’s enough for third place, but if we show recent form of 18/20 points from 12 games plus fatigued play , we will be in trouble as 68/70 points could be 4th but more likely 5th or 6th this season and if we tie on points our GD is a huge issue!

Simple we need 8 wins from 12 games. More importantly we must not lose our next PL game against Newcastle and ideally win it !
