    If a postponed game is played after Huddersfield and the "last match" rule still applies then you might find a lot of people suddenly capable of attending a midweek fixture.

    So chelsea are 15 points behind, with 15 games to play, so need 1 point more then us, in every game, to match us (and we have a game more to play).

    But if we don't get Sanchez, or if we do and his lack of pace and disruption in the dressing room, will lead Chelsea to win every game

    Realistically the best they can hope for is to finish with 85 points now 12-2-1 but lets face it that is not going to happen.

    Liverpool need to go 13-2-1 to finish on 85 points.

    Manure need to go 12-2-2 to finish on 85 points.

    I will include Spurs for illustration only but assuming they win today they need to go 13-2-0 to finish on 85 points.

    Is it starting to become painfully obvious that 85 points is going to win the title this year.

    What the likes of Tolmie is saying that its going to be a test without Sanchez for us to secure 23 points from our last 16 games.

    And you have to understand that all these sides have to face each other as well and of course at least one side must drop points namely 3 or both sides drop 2.

    Who would put decent money on Manure going 12-2-2 from now on and again if they do they finish on 85 points yes 85 points.

    They have to play Chelsea , Spurs , Liverpool , Arsenal and the title winners elect.

    They have dropped points in 8 of their 22 games to date and given their fixtures to drop points in 4 of their last 16 is far more likely than not.

    We need 1.4375 points per game to get to 85 points, that's worse than Burnley so far (no disrespect to them who are having a pretty good season).

    38 more points from 15/16 games looks a tall order for the rest of them imho.

    United need 2.375 points per game (2.14 so far)
    Chelsea 2.5333 (2.04)
    Liverpool 2.5625 (2.00)
    Spu...forget the rest.

    Whilst agreeing there is a high probability 85 points will be enough, sometimes crazy runs follow relatively poor performance. Look at Liverpool in 13/14 - 36 points in the 1st 19 games and then 48 points in the 2nd 19 games and a record of 15-3-1.
