Race Four Fourth Update: Down To Spurs or City?

Race Four Fourth Update: Down To Spurs or City?



Calling Blues, Whites, Reds and Villains. This week's question after the latest batch of results is have Liverpool finally slipped out of the reckoning...?

The rollercoaster prepares to take another turn as VMC continues to track the sides queuing up to get run ragged by the likes of Lionel 'Magic Boots' Messi next season!

Of the latest results, certainly there was profound disappointment around Anfield over the Reds latest damp squib draw at Birmingham.

Not many pundits predicted The Lilywhites cave in at Sunderland or The Citizens goal difference busting destruction of Burnley. Furthermore, The Villains hard fought win at Bolton means their own claim for fourth cannot be ruled out, but they have a lot of work to do.

Whilst Liverpool embark upon something of a last European stand of the season against Benfica this week, both Spurs and Villa now turn their attentions to the strong possibility of silverware and a blockbuster FA Cup weekend.

Will those cup exploits tell in the final league games? Can City and Liverpool take advantage of those FA Cup encounters this coming weekend?

On paper Liverpool's only demanding game will be at home to Chelsea giving them a minimum of 67 points. As such they are still in the mix as none of the Top 4 contenders have easy matches and many points will be dropped. All very close.

"The Cup Factor" cannot be ruled out. Many times down the years, we've seen sides who've secured a cup final place almost switch off in the league with players pulling out of those 50-50 challenges that could result in injury. The nearer to a final, the more that factor can become apparant. Spurs, Villa and Liverpool all have the tools to win the cups they are battling for.

I would think that there's a good chance that City only win one of their last six games (against a WHU who may still be battling relegation), Spurs only win two (Burnley/Bolton at home) and Liverpool win four (all except for Chelsea). Liverpool are definitely not out of it.

Shelf mate, I'd say chance rather than good chance, no?
