    Quite a lot of points are going to be required to win the league.

    Trouble is, the league will be won with points equal to the 2nd place finisher with better goal difference - or one point better than 2nd place finisher.

    So the correct answer to this question depends upon how many points the 2nd place finisher ends up with.

    My guess - is 95 or 96 to win the league.

    Liverpool had a nice little holiday in Dubai came back and dropped points , they are now off to Marbella for ten days before the Rag game , perhaps we can have a whip round to send the Dippers to warmer climes every time they have a free weekend , at this rate we will only need around 95 points , but at least the Dippers will have a small advantage , think of all the air miles Klippety and his merry men are clocking up.

    Rests between games are over stated for me. Liverpool are having to wait for nail biting games for two weeks while we’re playing every few days. We’ve got the squad to do it so they can have their shitty little breaks.

    Come on United. Come on Everton.

    91 or 92. Was the previous record points total 95 before last season ? Would be fvcking amazing to beat that again.

    We can get 98 and I reckon we’ll need at least 93 to win it. Very little margin for error now

    Wonder if all these breaks are to try and combat tiredness, I'm sure the 250 (seemed like that many) pre-season friendlies are taking their toll?

    Spurs are on course for 88 points. Highest points for a 3rd placed team possible this season.

    The back end of their season is pretty easy. It’s the next 6/7 where points will be lost. The key game is then having to play Spurs before we do.

    Their next 8 games

    United away
    Watford home
    Everton away
    Burnley home
    Fulham away
    Spurs home
    Southampton away
    Chelsea at home.

    Our next 7 to be level on games, assuming United will be rearranged to later in the season

    West Ham H
    Bournemouth A
    Watford H
    Fulham A
    Cardiff H
    Palace A
    Spurs H

    Spurs have Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in next 7 so tough for them.
