When Leicester was champions everyone waited every week for them to burst but it never happened so they won. For me itīs better if Man City win.

Definitely a Leicester win. Would finally put city's challenge to bed. If any team is going to beat us to the title this year, it's gonna be city not Leicester.

Going back to the original post.
The draw would be great.

The 2 nearest challengers dropping 2 points each against each other on a weekend where we don't play and we get left with a game in hand?

Most of us would snatch your hand off for that.

Don't want either of these 2 rivals to win, so a draw for me too.

If either of them catch us from that position then we wouldn't deserve to win it anyway.


I might change my mind now. A draw might be best... else a Leicester win?

Last season we drew 7 and lost 1 out of 38 games to accumulate 97 points. We are currently on 49 points after 17 games, drawing 1 and winning 16. We have already amassed more points with 2 games to go until the halfway stage than our record breaking 2nd place finish last season.

Man City have already exhausted their points losses against last season when they won the league with 98 points. They drew 2 and lost 4 games last season and have drew 2 and lost 4 games already after 17 games this season. With Chelsea seemingly falling by the wayside and Leicester dropping points at home v Norwich, Liverpool can afford:

3 losses over Leicester
4 losses over Man City
4 losses and a draw over Chelsea
5 losses and a draw over Spurs

and this is if any of those teams won every one of their games remaining this season! The fact is I don't think even Man City have the capacity to do that based on their wishy washy form of this season.

Our current position is amazingly strong.

It's ours to lose, but we can still lose it. Let's say VVD gets injured, could change a lot of things.

Man City beat Leicester, so we are still 10 points clear of second place with a game in hand, I was hoping for a draw, but I think this is a better result than Leicester winning as it doesn't close the points lead we have.

Now we need to beat Leicester.

Would of preffered a draw because city scare me to be honest, they are capable of winning all their remaining games. That Leicester game will be like a final now.

If City can bridge a 14 points gap then we dine deserve to be champions.
