    I was visiting friends in Liverpool last weekend and went to see the Liverpool v Tottenham game. Quite frankly the thought that we might need to go there for the last game of the season needing to win filled me with horror!!

      Several of the lower sides have picked up points against the top six with a little tweak no reason we can't pick up points home to Man U, Arsenal or Spurs. Positivity against these teams, to a degree it's a free hit.
      Also I don't buy into the "Palace have an easy run" they have a good (ish) record against the top sides but a poor record against the bottom ten. We all know their are no easy games as Palace have proved in the last two games with a home draw and an away defeat. After the next round of league games we could be four points clear of them with a superior goal difference, I would rather have the points on the board rather than the pressure of playing catch up.
      Enjoy the ride!

      Might be easier to pick up points against the top teams towards the end of the season anyway, as the title is likely to be wrapped up well before then.

      If the top four pull away too then none of them may have much to play for. Here’s hoping.........!

      They have Stoke and West Brom last two. I think anyone in the league would be happy with that.

      I'm happy with that, bottom sides nicking points off each other would work in our favour.

      Comforting thing being a lot of our relegation rivals are nearing the lower end of the table too.
      That's what I thought as well.

      I’ve said all season that we needed to get the points to survive by first of March. This is going to be very tough. Must beast Swansea, Huddersfield abd one other at the very least. The points needed for the final relegation place could be higher this year than in many previous years

      Other things not factored in are Injuries and Champions League commitments. Palace and West Ham have got some horrendous injury issues at the mo, whereas we have been relatively lucky (touch wood). Huddersfield and Newcastle have quite small squads (in terms of quality), so anything serious could be vital (although looks like Mooy’s injury isn’t too bad).

      I haven’t cross-referenced our fixtures vs Champions Lge for the Top Four, but i’m sure someone has. It may or may not work for us.

      Swansea have had the new manager bounce effect. FA Cup break has come at the perfect time. With that as our next fixture. They will level out. 1 nil win against a Burnley side, who haven't won in 10 games.. Will will turn Swansea and Huddersfield over. Then we just need 3 more points from somewhere.
      Kev? Has someone slipped you a positivity pill or what?
