Realistically anyone from 11th to 5th could finish 5th without a huge change in form. That seems to be the way the EPL goes each season: two or three fighting for the title, a bunch competing for the prize of Europe (from around 4th or 5th to 11th or 12th) and the rest battling to avoid relegation. Currently we are towards the top of the Europe challengers, but could easily drop to 11th without doing much wrong. On the other hand we could finish 5th without doing much different from now. There are super fine margins as most of those clubs don't have the big squad depths meaning a random injury or suspension at the wrong time could be the difference between 5th and 9th. As long as we don't lose sight of that we should be ok.
