Clearly unlikely to happen, but I would love it - the full Keegan 'love it!' - if we go into the last game with a draw meaning both we and the kit stealers are safe ... and we stuff them to send them down.

I can genuinely see us finishing on 35 points and being relegated by goal difference.

I think if we end up on 35 weíll be relegated on the basis of our points total.

so 38 points is definite safety now.

Brighton could do that tonight and West Ham or watford could get to 37 tomorrow.

Realistically for the other teams, 37 is safety with our goal difference.

I think I would probably prefer West Ham to win tomorrow and be safe and keep Watford under pressure as they have two tough games afterwards.

However beating Arsenal at home for the first time in over 20 years is a big ask for this team, let alone following it up with another at West Ham.

Watford are the kind of team to beat Arsenal as they will be in their faces unsettling them. I fear we are the opposite, letting them play.

I sometimes feel like I'm going mad but why oh why do people want West Ham to win so we're relying on two different teams to do us a favour in beating Watford? We have to want it in our hands as much as we can which means being able to catch West Ham with a win on the last day.

As Watford as just as likely to get turned over against Man City and Arsenal and it makes West Ham safe come last day...bar a 10 goal swing.

We have to win our last 2. Just have to. But now West Ham have to win tomorrow. It would probably mean we're out the bottom 3 going into the last day.

We'd need a six goal swing with Watford to go into last day out of bottom 3. Ultimately whatever happens tomorrow has its plus points but winning on the last day and still going down would be a choker.

It would. Odd goal win against Arsenal and if they're losing 2 on the spin, including a game against Man City, that's a good possibility.

Who knows.

Not sure why everyone is so downbeat. Bournemouth lost yesterday so if Watford and West Ham don't draw tomorrow we will have gained a point on two of our three relegation rivals. At this rate we should be able to haul our way to safety in just four or five more games.

I'm not sure I could take a 1-0 win against Arsenal. I mean, obviously, win 1-0 Villa, but my ticker in those last minutes would be close to exploding. So please drill them 2 or 3 instead Villa.
