Top-4 Race for last 9 games Prediction

ManU is fast catching up to Tiny Totts with Chelski close behind with a game in hand.
If Liverpool continues to draw and lose a few more games, then it may be 5 teams fighting for 3 spots in Top-4 with only Man City confirmed one spot.

Predicted Optimistic Arsenal Finish
61 + 21 = 82 points ….. 3rd Tiny Totts
57 + 25 = 82 points ….. 4th Arsenal
58 + 21 = 79 points ….. 5th ManU
56 + 22 = 78 points ….. 6th Chelski

It really depends on Arsenal beating ManU this weekend and win all 9 games to seal our Top-4 position.

Not happening. Few of those away games are easy, in fact maybe only Leicester or Burnley, the latter depending on their league position. I can see us struggling against Wolves, Watford and Everton though the latter blow hot and cold almost as much as we do.

Have to concentrate on winning the Europa.

I'm not too optimistic about top 4 either. We need the other to lose form, Totts have, that penalty miss still hurts, Chelsea and United seem to have gained some momentum. wee have to win on Sunday and I'm not sure we're capable of it. United totally under performed under Moaning Maureen, they have some good players and are now playing to their potential.

True but Chelsea and spurs will not win all their remaining games against teams outside the top 6 either.

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager.

Oh boy, after Rennes Fiasco, I doubt we can even score out of a paper bag against a high-pressing side with pacy forwards down our flanks … and worse, a porous defence giving away silly fouls around the box.

Finishing 5th is an achievement now.

To finish 4th, we need fighters and not wimps like Auba skipping out of tackles.

Those predictions above seems very unrealistic. You expect every big 6 team to win basically all their games against teams outside Top6 and go on title winning form. That's not happening.

Spurs have the easiest fixture list baring the Man City away game and should make Top4 if they halt their freefall.

Man Utd games are tricky but their hardest games are at home which gives them a good chance of picking up points.

Chelsea have the toughest fixtures and are clearly the worst team of the 4. With them having an easier route to Europa league final, i see them falling away over the next few week.

We have a decent set of fixtures but the problem is 5 of them are away against decent teams. However these teams are also playing for nothing so our players should want it more and that may give us a slight edge.

I think Arsenal & Spurs will be the two to make it but it will be close. It's amazing we're even in this position, Emery doing a great job.

Well on paper it all looks fine, but football not played on paper, so it could be a roller coaster ride with twists and turns. Teams hate Arsenal even when they have nothing to play for they are happy to block us



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory.

Wolves won

As i was saying these teams outside the Top6 will take points off teams as they have done all season.

This result allows us to lose 1 game or draw 2 and still be ahead of Man Utd. Plus Man Utd still have to play City & Chelsea at home. A win vs Everton will be massive for us.

I reckon we will win both our home games. Of the five away games, I reckon we will lose one, draw two and win two (they are not easy - Everton, Watford, Wolves, Leicester, Burnley). That would give us 77 points.

Man U have home games that they should win against West Ham & Cardiff, home games against City & Chelsea that I think they will lose and draw, and away games at Huddersfield & Everton that I think they will win - giving them 13 points - up to 74.

Chelsea have home games they will probably win against Brighton, West Ham & Burnley & Watford and away games at Liverpool they will lose and Man U and Leicester that they might draw - giving them 14 more points, making 74 points.

Spurs have home games against Palace, Huddersfield, Brighton, West Ham & Everton that they should win and away games at Man City they will lose and Bournemouth they should win - giving them 18 points, giving them 79 points in all.

Spurs would then be their and we would be 4th. But if Spurs slip up against Palace tomorrow (arguably their hardest home game) we might sneak 3rd.

I agree with almost all you state DJ, but Spurs next game could define their season, IMO.

Palace are one of the best away teams in the league and its Spurs first game at their new home ground, so that must bring extra pressure upon them.
Most Pundents are saying that The Spudz will be fired up, but they don't need that extra pressure with the form that they are in at present. They're a bit fragile ATM.

It will be criminal not to beat this limp dick of a team at Emirates.

Guess we should just focus on league games to cement Top-4 spot rather than reserving players to play Napoli away on 18 April.

Everton 1-0 Arsenal
Chelski 2-0 WHU

Leicester City, Wolves and Watford are the in-form team now.
Worse, they are all fighting for the last Europa Cup spot and we will be facing difficult away games against them.

Tiny Totts will not have an easy ride against Brighton and Bournemouth with both of them fighting to avoid relegation.
Chelski may have equally bad luck with their last 2 games against Watford and Leicester City; both of them fighting for 7th spot.

We depend on Man City, Liverpool, Everton and Leicester City to take points off them and knock them out of Top-4 race.

Chelsea play again before we play, but it is against Liverpool. Come on Pool! Tottenham play Huddersfield at home on Saturday, so 3 points for them then. If Pool beat the chavs and we can scrape out a win agaisnt Watford, we would go back in 4th on goal diff but chavs will have played a game more.

United playing Wham at home, not expecting much there so we could be in 6th by the time we play on Monday.

It's all very convoluted, but top 4 might not a CL place depending on winners of CL and EL.

Its all abit unlikely, plus its unlikely we finish in top 4 or win the Europa



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

I think we will need 13 points (making 76 in totalO) from our last 6 games to get in the Top 4 - I can see 9 or 10 here but beyond that we need some seriously good away form:

A Watford

H Palace

A Wolves

A Leicester

H Brighton

A Burnley

4th Quarter – Race for Top-4 for last 9 games:
Starting at Round #29, we track the fight for Top-4 for last 10 games amongst Tiny Totts, Arsenal, Chelski and ManU.
Round #34:
….. W … D …. L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
….. 5 ….. 1 ….. 0 … 13 ….. 5 ….. 8 … … 16 … Liverpool
….. 5 ….. 0 ….. 0 … 11 ….. 2 ….. 9 … … 15 … Abu Dhabi City
….. 4 ….. 1 ….. 1 … 10 ….. 5 ….. 5 … … 13 … Chelski
….. 3 ….. 1 ….. 1 ….. 6 ….. 2 ….. 4 … … 10 … Arsenal
….. 3 ….. 0 ….. 2 ….. 9 ….. 8 ….. 1 … ….. 9 … Manchester United
….. 2 ….. 1 ….. 2 ….. 6 ….. 5 ….. 1 … ….. 7 … Tiny Totts

In the Top-4 race, it is Chelski who is the in-form team with both ManU and Tiny Totts stumbling in this final stretch.

Round #34 – League Table:
….. W … D …. L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
… 26 ….. 7 ….. 1 … 77 … 20 … 57 … … 85 … Liverpool
… 27 ….. 2 ….. 4 … 86 … 22 … 64 … … 83 … Abu Dhabi City
… 22 ….. 1 … 10 … 64 … 34 … 30 … … 67 … Tiny Totts
… 20 ….. 6 ….. 7 … 66 … 40 … 26 … … 66 … Arsenal
… 20 ….. 6 ….. 8 … 57 … 36 … 21 … … 66 … Chelski
… 19 ….. 7 ….. 7 … 63 … 44 … 19 … … 64 … Manchester United


Arsenal must win remaining 2 no. home games and win 1 out of 3 remaining away games to seal Top-4.
The ideal result is for ManU and Chelski draw their game.
We need Man City to beat Tiny Totts and ManU to confirm our Top-4 spot .

Predicted Optimistic Arsenal Finish
67 + 13 = 80 points ….. 3rd Tiny Totts
66 + 11 = 77 points ….. 4th Arsenal
66 + 10 = 76 points ….. 5th Chelski
64 + 11 = 75 points ….. 6th ManU

Tiny Totts still need to play Man City away.
Chelski still need to play ManU away.
ManU still need to play Man City at home.

13 April 2019 –
ManU 2-1 WHU
Palace 1-3 Man City
Tiny Totts 4-0 Huddersfield
Watford 0-1 Arsenal
Liverpool 2-0 Chelski

Leicester City, Wolves and Watford are still the in-form team now.
Everton is also proving a tough nut to crack at Goodison Park.
Worse, they are all fighting for the last Europa Cup spot and all teams will be facing difficult away games against them.

Tiny Totts will not have an easy ride against Brighton and Bournemouth with both of them fighting to avoid relegation.
Chelski may have equally bad luck with their last 2 games against Watford and Leicester City; both of them fighting for 7th spot.

We depend on Man City, Liverpool, Everton and Leicester City to take points off them and knock them out of Top-4 race.
