Glass half full:

 

Let’s just beat Chelsea twice and relax for the last game of the season.

 

Glass half empty:

 

Finishing 5th on goal difference to Liverpool.  
 

 

Huge pressure on Chelsea to beat us on Tuesday. They will feel the nerves too. I still think we can beat them

I agree it’s massive games for all the clubs fighting for top 4. A season will be defined on a couple of key decisions in a couple of games.

Looks like Man Utd fans fears of playing Liverpool, their protests, postponement and attempts to cause more trouble were justified.

 

Absolutely bobbed it.

 

Utter shit **** bastards.

 

”Super Club”.

You think we are beating Chelsea and Spurs? 

Well:

a) it’s certainly possible

b) we don’t need to beat them both; just beating Chelsea would do it.

Had to turn the game off last night.  Couldn't stand carragher, souness, redknapp and the commentator spaffing over the scousers.  Tis ironic when they are supposed to be neutral. 

That's what NBCSN is for :P

Horrendous? Absolutely not!

It is possible that Leicester City could win the FA Cup and qualify for the Champions League with a game to go.

This is dreams come true stuff - a bit better than trying to avoid relegation, or scratting about hoping we’ll put a run together and sneak into the playoffs, no?

I'm not saying it's horrendous in terms of the position we're in, it's obviously great!

It's horrendous in terms of how nerve racking the whole thing is! At least it is for me anyway.

Who said they are supposed to be neutral?

Same here. This season is basically coming down to two absolutely massive games over THREE days. In the greater scheme of things for sure we're doing great even if we lose every game to the end of the season. But if a fan doesn't have their nerves jangling a little over this I'd be honestly confused. Once tomorrows game is underway I'll feel better, but before kickoff I'll be bricking it. 

 

I think we're going to win one, lose one, draw one.

 

I hope Palace and Burnley park their buses and kill off Liverpool's chances for top 4. Having to hear pundits bang on about Liverpool coming back and saving their season all the while having a picture of Klopp and his sh*teating grin in the background will do my head in.

Liverpool won’t lose any games now I don’t think. Push comes to shove they will win them all. It’s down to us. Ultimately if we don’t qualify it’s down to a Southampton and Newcastle. It’s all or bust for Chelsea which could work. A point would be good, because I’m 100% convinced we will beat Spurs on the last day. It’s Chelsea that I worry about, full strength under Tuchel we don’t stand a chance I don’t think. 
 

Id be gutted if we missed out again, and there will need to be a rethink in the summer because it’s not good to do it twice, considering we’ve spent most of the last two seasons in the top four......

We probably 2 points down to where we expected prior to the final run in, we won a game expected to lose but lost and drew 2 games we were expecting to win.

 

I agree on Liverpool, the way I see it we have to play to beat Chelsea, if we win, we in CL next season, if we draw, its still in our hands, beat spurs after draw, we in CL.

Draw at Stamford Bridge, beat Spurs, simple.

Not sure my nerves could take that on the final day, especially if Liverpool max out until then.

 

LCFC (3rd - 67 pts) vs Spurs (H)

Liverpool (4th - 66pts, better GD) vs Crystal Palace (H)

Chelsea (5th - 65pts, better GD if we draw against Spurs) vs Aston Villa (A)

 

Would be a very tense atmosphere at the ground I'm sure.

 

 

Really, really hope we can beat Chelsea on Tuesday - or Liverpool drop 3 points unexpectedly - so there's no pressure on that final game and we can just enjoy it again.

Liverpool have struggled against defensive teams. Burnley and Palace play to type I don't think it's guaranteed that Liverpool will win either game. The problem is both have nothing really to play for and some players maybe have one eye already on the summer break. It'll be how Dyche and Hodgson demand they perform. 

 

I agree about Chelsea. Their CL games showed how far they've progressed under Tuchel. It'll come down to who takes their chances. Vardy on top form would give me more confidence but he's as bad as Werner at the moment.

Aymeric Laporte switching from France to Spain

 

Imagine not giving a £57m defender playing in top European club a single cap by the age of 26.
It's got to be one of the most extraordinary snubs when it comes to national team selections.

It's all down to squad dynamic apparently. Apparently they don't really like his attitude and think he'll be a bad influence so they don't pick him. Ever. lol

If we lose on Tuesday but beat Spurs and still not get top 4, then our form would be 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats in the final 7 games. 13 points, 1.86 points per game. It would mirror the average points total that we've maintained by and large throughout the season - 69 points, 1.81 points per game.

 

There's a narrative that we are chucking away top 4 but it's not quite as obvious as that.  What we have done is perform ridiculously well against our rivals and then been less effective against some very ordinary teams but us to get 69 points and still not get in would be astonishing.

anyone that thinks burnley are just going to role over and let liverpool beat them is being foolish. Burnley, especially that they have no pressure on them will surely have a go at liverpool. Liverpool are where they are because they have struggled with teams like them. Fair enough, West Brom are probably done in terms of even trying, and Palace have a terrible record there, but Hodgson may not want to retire just yet. 

 

Burnley live for matches like their next one against liverpool. I remember they beat us 1 2 in 19 20 and 1 2 in 17 18, they had no pressure but they make your day hell.

That's because Deschamps is an idiot. Some of his team selections and player snubs have been baffling.

Palace are doing their usual ‘on the beach’ thing after surfing but this time with a lot of players and the manager all out of contract at the end of the season. Have more faith in Liverpool getting Big-Sammed.
