    Title pretty much done and dusted, what are everyone’s predictions for top 4?

    Given leicesters elimination from EL tonight I can’t see them dropping out, don’t see utd dropping out either.

    For me it’s between chelsea and pool for 4th, my heart and money on my blues but it will be really tough. Of course its arrogant to dismiss West ham outright given they are above both at the moment too

    For me top 4 will be

    1) City
    2) Leicester
    3) utd
    4) chelsea

    Lucky, I still have a sneaky feeling Chelsea will get second as they have such momentum now during the Tuchel honeymoon period.

    It’s going to be a fascinating race this year with so few points separating the sides.

    I’m going for

    1. City
    2. Chelsea
    3. Utd
    4. Liverpool

    I just think Leicester will start to fall away and just miss out.

    I would love you both to be right, my heart says Chelsea but my head says ultimately Liverpool might find a bit of form that is sufficient enough to take a CL place with Chelsea just missing out.

    But it’s a very difficult one to call this season of all seasons. The next 2 PL games for Chelsea at home to United and away to Liverpool are probably critical to Chelsea.

    Think 9 points in 13 games is alot for Liverpool to catch Leicester. My money would be on the top 3, plus Chelsea, sad to say!

    But, hey, we’ll win the Champions League and sneak in to next year’s comp that way!!

    Ed, I thought 2nd for chelsea at first as I believed we would finish prem much stronger than utd or Leicester, but if I was tuchel as long as we on track for top 4 the CL games would be priority and we may see a few more dropped points like vs saints as he rotates the team, and there is a 5 point gap.

    Tuchel came 2nd in CL last year and will believe with a bit if luck this team can win it this year I think

    Personally I think we may get a bit further in champs league but if we finish top 4 it will not be by a comfortable margin

    Difficult to see Liverpool
    Getting in top 4 on current form lads

    It’s even difficult to see were our next win comes from

    I think West Ham will fade as they have some tough games coming up but you never know as it’s been such a a strange season

    City
    Utd
    Leicester
    Chelsea

    With Utd going away to Chelsea, away to City and away to Spurs over the coming weeks, that’s easily 9 points we could realistically drop so it’s far from a certainty that any of the sides currently in the top 4 (bar City) won’t drop out. If Utd get through Chelsea and City games still with a bit of a gap, I’ll be more confident but that’s a big if.

    Unless we start winning matches and putting on a consistent run, there’s potentially no Europe for us and we could finish outside the Top 6. I don’t feel overly downbeat about it and slight acceptance to our plight.

    Maybe the ‘eject’ would do us good; almost a detox from the last few years. What should be taken into consideration aside the 2 Elite Trophies won in successive seasons is that we were in the CL Final 2018 and the year before that we were in the Europa League Final, plus the League Cup. More trophies could have been added under Klopp’s reign. He’s done remarkably well under his tenure.

    It may do us good for a proper RESET next season.

    Be a good Final Brian.😊

    Chelsea still have the massive task of getting past Atletico though plus what’s to come.

    But you never know Chelsea weren’t the best team in the competition in 2012 and Liverpool weren’t the best team in the competition in 2005.

    Sometimes it’s just meant to be.

    Brian, you don’t want that we would break your hearts like utd did to us on pens, all the pressure would be on pep to deliver and he would go a bit crazy like he does for the big games and play some sort 181 formation with gundogan as false nine πŸ™‚

    Joking aside would be delighted to see us in final no matter who we played and City would make great European champions

    Lets do it guys…..Chelsea v City…two Blue teams although we will be in Black I assume or White as they have played recently. Anyway, it would be a good final…not seen a bad game between the two sides yet

    Lol Brian, from Chelsea POV can’t agree with that last bit as the 6-0 a couple of seasons ago was certainly a bad game πŸ™‚

    I do think it would be a great final Brian

    Lucky…even the 6-0 was entertaining and if I remember Chelsea did try and play, I was at the match, doubt if anyoe could have lived with City that day but the match itself was good from both sides, sometimes it happens like this

    Lucky…I also remember Chelsea thrashing us at the Etihad and Zols was applauded off the field even by City fans

    Yeah city were magnificent Brian, and one of my fave boxing matches was Joe calzaghe against Jeff lacy, the punch count was like 1000 to 50 so you are right and it doesn’t necessarily have to be even to be entertaining in footie either, the only boxing fans who didn’t like that fight were lacy fans, and the only footie fans who couldn’t enjoy city that day were chelsea fans!

    The thrashings are few and far between for either side though and like you I fancy city chelsea to be an amazing final if it were to happen

    Fingers crossed and congrats on another step towards title today, west ham are no joke this year mate are they, fair play to them.
