    Context matters. Chelsea performing to the same level as last season with a rookie manager, having lost Hazard and serving a transfer ban is incredibly commendable.

    Also, as a general exercise, comparing results to the same teams last season ignoring the context those games were played in is pretty flawed.

    Oh and no reason to be so salty when I said nothing negative about your beloved

    I'm literally just responding to you mate. I'm not sure why you think I'm being salty.

    FiveThirtyEight like Chelsea and see something in United from performances this year. Their model suggests 60 points could get top four this year.

    I really want us to compete for this. Hopefully we can win our next 5 ‘winnable’ games.

    Liverpool, City and Chelsea are a cert. United wont be in it (with Ole not to be sacked for quite some time). Spurs and Arsenal look average at the moment as well. If Leicester can keep going...

    I think the current top four will pull away as they seem to have a plan of what they are doing.

    Great chance for Leicester you'd have to say.

    They're pretty good at getting wins in games you expect them to, won away to Sheffield and won home games v Newcastle, Burnley and Bournemouth.

    Also took 4 points off Chelsea and Spurs so I'd say if they can avoid injuries to the obvious big players I can see them finishing in the top 4.

    Based on what I’ve seen so far, Liverpool, City, Leicester & Chelsea is my early top 4 prediction. Arsenal, Spurs & Utd are not good enough.

    Unless Leicester have a big injury problem, they're looking very good for it. Really consistent, with a clear plan.

    Can see Leicester 3rd if they keep their big players fit for majority of games.

    Leicester have been one of the league's form teams going back to last season.

    Still seems a real mixed bag behind City and Pool though. I don't have much confidence to pick two teams out of Chelsea Arsenal Spurs and have some doubts about Leicester towards the end of the season.

    We saw last year a real poor bunch throwing away their chances in the second half of the season. Will be interesting to see if Leicester can keep this up and chisel out a solid third place while the rabble behind play musical chairs for fourth place.

    Hard to see United taking part but perhaps a strong second half with some good Jan signings, players slowly coming together and playing for Ole or dare I say another new manager bounce.

    Shaping up. The top 4 are relatively close to each other with almost 10 point gap between the 4th and 5th place, depending on the result tomorrow.
