We Still Have A Chance But Can We Take It? Don’t Bank On It!

By on April 19, 2011

The draw against Liverpool actually did not change anything in terms of the title race. If we had got all three points, we would have been 4 points behind Man United. As it stands now we are 6 points back. In terms of the title race there is little difference between being 4 or 6 points. We still need Man United to drop points in two matches out of their remaining six. The key statistic is 2 matches. While at 4 points we need the leaders to at least lose one and draw the other, now we need them to lose two matches. Again there is hope in that because the leaders still need to come to the Emirates and play Chelsea. I am almost certain that Man United will drop the six points needed in the last six matches. This is their schedule for the end of the month:

  • April 27 Schalke
  • May 1 Arsenal
  • May 3 Schalke
  • May 6 Chelsea

I see them losing to both Arsenal and Chelsea during this stretch. Their other games are not easy fixtures as well because of the relegation battle brewing down the bottom half of the league.

Unfortunately, I do not have much confidence in Arsenal to get all the points from their remaining matches. If they can throw away three points from a winning position at the Emirates, how can they be counted on to deliver the maximum at places like White Hart Lane, The Reebok or The Britannia?

So we are definitely in with a shout for the title but unfortunately this team is not mentally strong enough to win it.
