On which note, Chelsea losing tonight guarantees us European football next season.

It's only a must win if not winning it mathematically costs you something. We are not at that stage yet.
Ok and can it be said a must win also for when it prevents an opponent from reaching same points tally.
So in a few games will have some must win matches then.

It entirely depends on the points. If Spurs lose four games, and draw and win one each, we wouldnít have a single Ďmust winí league game left. If they do better than that, we might have some.

I think it guarantees us Europa League at least. Man Utd and Newcastle have to play one another. So the only way they can both reach 66 points is if they draw, but Utd.'s goal difference is so bad that they wouldn't finish above us even if we lose our last 4 games. Well, probably not.

A win for Arsenal on Sunday officially puts us out the title race.

To still be mathematically in it with only 3-4 games to go is fantastic considering where we were.

Newcastle ruled out of the running tonight, Man U on the brink but clinging on.

I'll happily concede out title challenge if it does our 4th place challenge some good.

Iíd love for us to leapfrog Liverpool into 3rd by the end of the season. A stretch but given how they are playing 8 points with us still having to play them isnít out of the question.

I said the same in the other games thread. They've got West Ham, Spurs, and us to play before finishing at Wolves. Three of those 4 are still pushing for European places, so they're not easy games for Liverpool by any means.

Man City are 3rd and I don't see them winning tomorrow so have tobe looking at overtaking them first.
And I would love it if they finished 5th !

Away at forest who are fighting for their lives Sunday.
Can see Man City only picking up couple of draws next two with no Haaland tomorrow.
They have Wolves at home after so expect them to win that one.
Before Spurs match.

To finish 4th or 5th as now seems pretty certain and be in a European semi final is bloody brilliant considering the injuries. To be fair one or two pundits pre season did see this coming. Great time to be a Villa fan!!
