How the table could look at the end of the season: 3, 4 and 5

We thank Darren Spencer for sharing this wonderful piece of writing with us. So make sure you follow him on twitter @darrenspencer95 .

 

After a nail-biting last 20 minutes during the Arsenal game and an enjoyable 35 minutes when Spurs were trailing against Everton, it turned out to be a good weekend! We didn’t play as well as we did last week but we showed our toughness and ground out the 3 points. Spurs were not the same team without Bale and were fortunate to get a point against Everton.

But now we look to the future. Currently the race for the Champions League spots look like this:

2

 

The fixtures for Arsenal:

 

Norwich (H)

Everton (H)

Fulham (A)

Man United (H)

QPR (A)

Wigan (H)

Newcastle (A)

 

The fixtures for Spurs:

 

Chelsea (A) (postponed)

Manchester City (H)

Wigan (A)

Southampton (H)

Stoke (A)

Sunderland (H)

 

The fixtures for Chelsea:

 

Tottenham (H) (postponed)

Fulham (A)

Liverpool (A)

Swansea (H)

Man United (A)

Aston Villa (A)

Everton (H)

 

Points to think about:

 

· Chelsea and Spurs are still both involved in the Europa League.

· Chelsea is still in the FA Cup.

· Bale is injured, even if only temporarily.

· Rafael Benitez sucks.

· Spurs choked last year.

· Chelsea has the most difficult last few games, Spurs remaining fixtures are pretty tough and Arsenal has a relatively easy run-in.

 

 

I am an extreme optimist and always expect Arsenal to win but after trying to take an objective view I have made the following (reasonable) predictions:

 

Results for Arsenal:

 

Norwich (W)

Everton (D)

Fulham (W)

Man United (L)

QPR (W)

Wigan (W)

Newcastle (W)

 

Results for Spurs:

 

Chelsea (D)

Manchester City (L)

Wigan (W)

Southampton (W)

Stoke (W)

Sunderland (W)

 

Results for Chelsea:

 

Tottenham (D)

Fulham (W)

Liverpool (W)

Swansea (W)

Man United (L)

Aston Villa (W)

Everton (D)

 

Final table:

1

 

Goal difference could definitely be important and both Chelsea (28) and Arsenal (27) have a far superior goal difference to Spurs (15).

 

After this weekend’s results Chelsea (1/4) are favourites to finish inside the top 4, Arsenal (3/10) is the next favourite and Spurs are 11/8 outsiders according to bet365.

 

Hopefully Arsenal can continue their great run of form which started after the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich and grab that immensely important Champions League spot. Walcott and Wilshere, but especially the latter, returning soon will be a good boost for the team. Do follow me on twitter @darrenspencer95 and share your thoughts.
