    Not true. Tottenham can conceivably get 85 points which means we need to win both unless Tottenham drop points in their two games before the derby.

    Except with two scenarios we can afford to draw the derby

    hahaha brilliant, Sky spent all that time and forgot about Spurs.

    Posters are right in that I have discounted Liverpool and Spurs who come into play in unlikely but possible circumstances.

    I don't know what would be more bizarre, us losing the rest of the matches, Spurs being perfect the rest of the season (with their latest injuries), or dropping 31 in GD in 8 matches. The odds of any of those three have to be bigger than the 5000-1 Leicester City champions bet. Maybe not Spurs winning out, but the other two certainly are.

    There are no scenarios where we can win the league on derby day without winning the match.

    If we beat Everton & Swansea beat them (unlikely I know) then we'd be 19 points ahead and could afford a draw.

    But Spurs could equal our points total if they win them all and we lose the rest.
