    This weekend could be huge.
    Jose will be desperate for some sort of result when chelsea come to OT.
    We need to do a professional job in the early kickoff and hopefully by the end of the weekend the gap will be down to 5 or 6 points.

    The ole maths werent great yesterday. Down to 4 points. Get in!

    What a day out! The control we exerted from the off. Vertonghen, Dembele, and Dier were monsters, the front four playing with total freedom. The ground is rocking, so glad I got there one last time.
    Beat Chelsea next weekend and the pressure really ramps up on them. Danny Rose back would be like a new signing.
    Chelsea could go unbeaten, draw two, and we would catch them, but we have to keep winning. It sounds impossible, but it isn't any more. It's on. COYS

    After UTD beating Chelsea, we have a slight chance of winning the league.

    The pressure will be ramped up massively now. I am confident we will best Chelsea next weekend and then everyone will say Spurs are favourites for the league which is ridiculous. Chelsea have only two or maybe three fixtures where they might slip up Southampton at home next week (about a 20% chance of a slip up if Southampton get very lucky, then later on Everton away (about a 45% chance) followed by West Brom away (about a 40% chance normally but WB ominously look like they have gone on their usual early Summer Break).

    We, on the other hand have two London away derbys against teams who still need the points and who would love to inflict pain on us (Palace and West Ham) a match at WHL against unbeaten since October Utd and what will be the mother of all NLDs versus the Gunners. That is the Gunners last chance of gaining some respectability in their fans eyes this season and it will be x-rated. Despite the disparity in the run ins and Chelsea's 4 point lead and the inevitability of our 100% run coming to and end eventually, we will also have the added pressure of being accused of being bottlers by teams who never had the bottle to even get into the championship race if things go Pete tong.

    I just can't wait for the the Chelsea and NLD matches. All the years of pain and we are finally playing the big games at the big times. Fantastic!!!

    Aye, but it's nice to be involved again. Chelsea had it sewn up a few weeks ago and now the media are starting to back the underdog.

    I'm going to enjoy it for what it is at the moment. But if that gap was to change to 2 or 3 points instead of 4, well then....

    Id invest more if it wasn't for Chelsea's run in. It's ridiculously easy. Their last 2 games, both at home are guaranteed 6 points unfortunately

    Both Hull and Sunderland will likely be relegated by last day so it will come down to next four games essentially.

    Can see Everton and WBA drawing with Chelsea on a good day for both so its not impossible. Its up to us to win each match as it comes. If we can beat Palace away (which wont be easy) Id be pretty sure we will take Arsenal at home.
