Below are the remaining fixtures for the teams vying for a top four place this season. Spurs, United and Chelsea have eight games left; Liverpool have seven. Let’s have some fun and games with this! After each club’s fixtures I’ve predicted the amount of points I think they will manage from their remaining games. Okay, I know, obviously I’ll be wrong … but I’ve been there before.
SPURS: Chelsea (A), Stoke (A), City (H), Brighton (A), Watford (H), WBA (A), Leicester (H), Newcastle (H) …. Predicted points19.
CHELSEA: Spurs (H), WHU (H), Southampton (A), Burnley (A), Swansea (A), Pool (H), Newcastle (A), Hudderfield (H) …. Predicted points 17
LIVERPOOL: Palace (A), Everton (A), Bournemouth (H), WBA (A), Stoke (H), Chelsea (A), Brighton (H) …. Predicted points 19
UNITED: Swansea (H), City (A), WBA (H), Bournemouth (A), Arsenal (H), Brighton (A), Watford (H), WHU (A) …. Predicted points 17
So, according to me Spurs will finish in the top four …. and Chelsea won’t. Obviously I’ve based my predictions on the results that should happen according to current form. But, and it’s a big but, many of the opponents each of these teams will face will be fighting for survival, and that could result in some games not going according to form.
Although I believe the top four will probably be City, United, Liverpool, and Spurs, it will only take a couple of unexpected results to lift Spurs to a higher finish. It is entirely possible! After all, it is football so, at some stage, we can expect the unexpected. Right?
How do my predicted points and top four positions compare to yours?
