    Sky have nine versions:

    City can become Premier League champions against United if...
    City beat Everton, United beat Swansea
    City will maintain their 16-point gap, meaning victory over United will seal the title.

    City beat Everton, United draw with Swansea
    City will open up an 18-point gap, meaning victory over United will seal the title. A draw against their rivals would mean only goal difference can deny City, if they lose their remaining six games and United win all six and overcome the goal-difference deficit.

    City beat Everton, United lose to Swansea
    City will open up a 19-point gap, meaning victory or a draw against United will seal the title.


    City draw with Everton, United draw with Swansea
    City will maintain their 16-point gap, meaning victory over United will seal the title.

    City draw with Everton, United lose to Swansea
    City will open up a 17-point gap, meaning victory over United will seal the title.

    City lose to Everton, United lose to Swansea
    City will maintain their 16-point gap, meaning victory over United will seal the title.


    City cannot become Premier League champions against United if...
    City draw with Everton, United beat Swansea
    City's gap will close to 14 points, meaning there is no scenario where City can win the title against United.

    City lose to Everton, United beat Swansea
    City's gap will close to 13 points, meaning there is no scenario where City can win the title against United.

    City lose to Everton, United draw with Swansea
    City's gap will close to 15 points. Victory over United would not seal the title, but the 18-point gap would mean only goal difference can deny City, if they lose their remaining six games and United win all six and overcome the goal-difference deficit.

    You need something better to do with your time. May I suggest a PC, one of many porn websites, some vaseline & tissues (note : should not be done at the public library or family/friends house).

    What happens if one gets abandoned?

    And of course United beating Swansea makes it very simple.....we must beat Everton and United

    Their security team get sacked.

    I don't think United will have an easy ride against Swansea so maybe a draw against Everton will do us.

    I'll simplify it for you. We have to get at least the same result as the rags in the Everton game as they get in the Swansea game then beat them in the derby.

    Not true. We both lose, us v Everton, them v Swansea, and we then beat them, Spurs can still win title.

    If we win both we win it. That's all we need to know.

    If we drop two points, either United or Spurs could conceivably catch us so we don't win it on the day.

    The only slight caveat is we can afford to drop the same points as United in the game before if Tottenham also drop points against Chelsea or Stoke.

    True, assuming Spurs win both their next 2 games, which are away to Swansea & Chelsea, and we lose all our remaining games while Spurs win all theirs and make up a 30+ difference in GD.
