The Run In

So with the Man City and Liverpool away games now behind us, the run in to the end of the season is poised to commence in earnest this weekend at home against Southampton.  Below are the games left for the six most likely candidates to fill the bottom 3.  In short, nobody has an easy run and there is even an outside chance a team like Newcastle might get dragged into the mire.

For us, the maths appears to be as Noble said post match at Anfield – 15 points would probably see us safe, so either 5 wins or 4 wins and 3 draws, but seeing as there are only 11 games left and six of those matches are against teams currently in the top 10 (the latter fact is also true for Watford and Norwich, while Villa Bournemouth and Brighton have seven current top 10 clubs still to face), it won’t be easy and we’ll doubtless also be banking on other teams not pulling up surprise results (but that will inevitably happen at some point as it does every season).

Upper case opposition are currently in the top 10.
