Great to see Chelsea losing. Opening on a 7 point gap between us and 5th is excellent. Hopefully we can push on for the final 9 games and finish as high as possible.

It is a good gap and City have been nailed on for the title since Christmas.
We’re also 15 points clear of Arsenal in 6th with 27 points up for grabs. 👍.

Second is really a minimum now. That’s what we should be pushing for, alongside CL as far as we can get. Spurs result only bad one for us this weekend. Let’s hope Palace get playing for their PL survival.

If Chelsea win all remaining games we would only be able to lose 2 and draw one - say we lose to united that's one draw and one loss in 8 - it's not over yet! Having them away on the second last game could be huge - hopefully Spurs do us a favour before then. We also have Everton away and whilst they're terrible, you can't tel in a derby.

Surely second is a realistic maximum rather than a minimum?

I doubt Chelsea will win their last 9 unless Roman promises to buy them an island each if they get to the top 4.
They’re not really playing for the manager anymore, the usual Chelsea pattern. New manager, play well, after 1 year sack it off until a new manager comes in.

2nd, 3rd, 4th, really does not matter as finishing 2nd gets you 2nd.

4th now gets you automatic qualification into the CL group stages and to be honest, who was expecting LFC to finish 2nd at the start of the season?

The only difference between finishing 2nd and 4th now is bigger prize money from the League.

But yeah, I am praying that we finish ahead of UTD!

Buy them an island each? . More like send them off to a gulag!

Still we lose to United and Chelsea and draw to Everton we are level pegging - they won't need to win all nine of we drop points too.

I’m with you Ron. Are we now saying that we have underachieved if we finish lower than 2nd? Of course we should push for 2nd but to say it’s a minimum is just ridiculous.

We are 7 ahead of Chelsea aren’t we? Two defeats and a draw would see us drop 8 points and go beneath them hyperthetically.

So we can currently afford 1 defeat and two draws if you assume Chelsea are going to win all their remaining games.

Chelsea are not going to win all their remaining games though. They’ll do well to get a point off us 🏆.

There are still some twists and turns left this season. I think city's result means we can afford to draw at utd and Chelsea. Phew, I can't see us finishing fifth now.

Firmane, you've just got us dropping 7 points and them still needing to win all 9!

It's not in the bag, but I'd rather be us than them!

Ah the old nugget appears again “who was expecting 2nd at the start of the season”. How I’ve missed those lines in the last couple of months.

A long way to go still - nothing guaranteed, except City winning, I guess. I will be nervous until we're mathematically across the line (in 2nd place that is) .
