So Who's Got The Easier Run In Of The Top Six?

So Who's Got The Easier Run In Of The Top Six?



The ludicrously timed injury shipping international break gives an opportune moment to take stock of where we are at in The Premier League. The er, 'End Game' is imminent...

I'm confused. Is this supposed to be a discussion or are you a BBC reporter who can only make lists of things we can find elsewhere. At least give us some opinion yourself to get things started? anyway, i'd say 'pool the you lot have got the easiest run ins followed by chelsea, arsenal and united with us yids having the hardest time of it as we have to play 4 of the other 5 in the top 6

i hate to be biased but i think chelsea have...all we have is united away and spuds at home (which is always a win and considering their away form sucks) we're also the inform team at the moment, and generally always finish the campaign strong!

I'd say City. Only a defeat by the Lilywhites marring that good run of fixtures you'll soon be knee-deep in.;)

@Simgee Seems obvious to me that he wants to provoke discussion, there are all kinds of different articles here at VMC from opinions to fact to discussion based ones.

I think we saw enough at Chelsea last week to suggest they are gathering momentum. I said at the time that I could see them bombing up out of nowhere to challenge the rags and those three home games in 10 days could prove pivotal. They look the fresher of the top six, which at this stage is ideal...City need to hit the ground running against Sunderland, because imho, recent form suggests we will struggle. 8 points from 21 possible is a worrying statistic. Our games look very tricky based on that knowledge. As our Blues playing for England last night reminded us, we've played more games than anybody else, 17 more than Sunderland in fact and injuries mean we've got a battle on our hands...I think this time around and with that Champions League commitment that Spurs will find it difficult to maintain the top four challenge. They face some nasty fixtures...Arsenal's season hangs by a thread and their confidence must be rock bottom. The two week break is either going to see them recharged or continuing to fail to see teams off. Again, they have a tough run in...The scousers are bouyant and enjoying their football. I think they'll have a good finish with no pressure....But above all else, I believe that United have the easier run in. They are playing with the confidence and freedom of a side who knows it has got away with murder all season. Scraped draws or wins against Arsenal and Chelsea should see them take the title.

no one has an easy run in at this time of the season, I imagine most would have predicted arsenal to win their last 2 and spurs to win their last 3 and both teams won none.

Does Referee Anthony Taylor Require Remedial Training?

Anthony Taylor took charge of yesterday's Premier League tie at the Etihad Stadium between Manchester City and Chelsea but I have to say the 38-year-old Wythenshawe, Manchester born..
