Can see Chelsea being a similar game to Spurs. They have injuries and defensively are pretty poor.

Hopefully if we're 2-2 going into injury time we can actually see it out as every point is vital from now.

If it is 2-2 going into injury time, I'd rather we tried to win like we did against Watford and Brighton. Nearly always worth risking one point for two.

Sometimes you have to be pragmatic especially with the counter attacking ability of the top teams (or a CB missing a routine clearance).

If we're level with Leicester and Chelsea near the end I'd take two draws happily. Will build the confidence up again nicely and then if we go to Newcastle and win we'll be on 31 points and suddenly getting to 37-38 points dosen't look that difficult.

You know we just beat Leicester... with a last second goal? And Chelsea lost to shitey Newcastle with an injury time winner, too.

Go for the win.

I can envisage that we might produce a few good results, even against some of the top sides.
What I can't see is our putting a string of results together. The current squad can't play Dean Smith's preferred style at this level consistently.

It's going to be close, which may of us fully expected.   
 

We don't really need that much of a run. We could stay up with runs of 1 win in 3 if we also draw a game in that run. Another 12 points and it's not certain we'd stay up but I'd be pretty confident looking at the runs in likes of Bournemouth have.

I agree that we don't need a good run to avoid the drop, but we do need one to sail away from the relegation zone and be safe with a couple of games left. I think we will stay up, but it will be very close, and this is pretty much what I expected to happen.

Can't see us doing well enough to being safe by final day. Just hope it's one of those situations where we go to West Ham three points clear and they need to beat us by 4-5 goals so as good as safe.

If we top 34 points I'll be gob smacked.
