Momentum is a huge factor at this stage, do not lose to Luton and beat Spurs will give us a huge lift.
2 poor results and the wobbles are back.

Injuries will have a big say.  If Pau is struggling and we're down to Chanbers and Lenglet for a few games I do fear for us.

I'm assuming three or four more ACLs before the run-in.

Bound to be a couple of fatalities as well, knowing our luck.

Win the next two and I think well finish fourth.

We've only breached 70 points once since the Premier League was started, and that was the first season, when we got 74 points.

That was a 42-game season. 74 points over 42 games is 1.76 points/ game, which is 67 points over 38 games.

So some of the pessimistic predictions of 15 points over the remaining 12-games would still see us match our best performance since football was invented in 1992.

Our current goal difference of +21 is also the highest that weíve had since football was invented in 1992. As long as it doesnít fall over the next 12 games it will beat the +20 we achieved in 2007-08.

Iíve been out in the sun and I reckon we will win all our remaining league matches and end up champions. Aim high.

I need a lie down.

Alas, we are close enough to the end of the season for maximum possible points to come into play.

If Liverpool, Man City, and Arsenal continue as they have been, their PPGs will leave them with 88, 86, and 85 points respectively.

Our maximum possible points total is 88...  :'(

Luton 3
Spurs 3
West Ham 1
Wolves 3
Man City 0
Brentford 3
Arsenal 0
Bournemouth 3
Chelsea 1
Brighton 1
Liverpool 0
Palace 1

That gives us 71 points I think that should do it.

A lot will depend on whether we get Torres back and whether he stays fit and whether we get any other injuries. Anyway, being optimistic that all of that will be fine i'd go...

Luton 3
Spurs 1
West Ham 1
Wolves 1
Man City 0
Brentford 3
Arsenal 0
Bournemouth 3
Chelsea 1
Brighton 1
Liverpool 1
Palace 3
So 18 points

If we do get more injury problems i'd knock 3-5 off.

Good point, hadn't remembered that!

As with player ratings, do any of you think anyone is reading the points predictions?
