4th CL spot is going to come down to a point or two or maybe even goal difference.

I could see Liverpool ending up on 67 points( draw away to Man U and 3 wins).

Leicester are on 63 points and they not going to find it easy getting more than 4 points from their trips away to Man Utd and Chelsea plus their final game at home to Spurs.

And then of course there is West Ham.

Interesting couple of weeks ahead of us.

Leicester play Utd, Chelsea and Spurs there is no way they are winning all those games so it's in our hands imo but we must win all 4 games and we could sneak in.

A huge game today West Ham v Everton will have a significant impact on our finishing position.

I posted over a month ago that Leicester would slip up and that we would be battling with Chelsea and West Ham for 3rd and 4th places. If West Ham win today, their remaining 3 games are very winnable indeed and they sit 1 point ahead of us, currently.

I believe Chelsea should get 3rd place now unless they have some injury crisis and they have to conserve players for FA Cup and CL Finals. They sit 7 pts clear of us having played 1 game more and with them having just 3 to play it's hard to see them not making Top 4 now.

The GD is going to be vital, we are currently down on Leicester by -2 (Leicester -20 / Liverpool -18). However we can definitely just as easily shoot ourselves in the foot if we don't go OT on Thursday and win.

It will be interesting how Utd cope with today's game @ Villa then v Leicester on Tuesday before they play us. Will they conserve their best players to play us?

Win at OT and with this team, are you serious? Has Klopp ever won at OT, I don't remember? Maybe if all their players are jaded after playing 4 games over 8 days but still, we seem to be the worst team of the league right now and they seem to be the best

With how this season has gone, it would not surprise me if we beat Man Utd but then we go and lose to WBA, we have given ourselves a fighting chance, we just need to got out and win the next 4 games, all out attack. but we have said that a few times this season, I have no expectations, but teams around us are wobbling, so it is possible.

Can't see us winning 5 in a row with the game yesterday. Burnley and WBA will give us a tough game and United is probably the best team now. They will play a second string team Tuesday but their best on Thursday.

Agree, and next season will be as difficult with City, United and Chelsea looking top 3 material.

We have won 3 in a row only this season so we have to break new ground to get 5 wins. It's a long shot but it's our last stand basically to salvage the season.

Why would they play second string against Leicester when they can still mathematically win the league?

Physically impossible even if they want to put their best players on the pitch and very dangerous as they can easily get muscle injuries due to lack of rest. Lets say we're in their position now and we have to play 3 in 5 days, even with every player fit for example Vvd, do you think any manager would play him in all 3 games?

This is the reason I'm predicting they will change it up completely for Leicester and at best bring their players off the bench if needs be.

i think Ole could be wary of injuries sustained from a full-bloodied match against us. same goes for against Leicester as we're both still chasing CL. he's in a major european final after all.

We should not be getting carried away with ďifísĒ or ďbutísĒ regarding Man Utdís team selections. Klopp needs to get the team focused on destroying whomever they come up against, starting on Thursday evening at OT.

Itís time for redemption, what has gone on before this season needs to be thrown out the window. Our attack needs to introduce themselves to each other again because theyíve ultimately got us into this position, misfiring with alarming regularity. Their place in the team next season needs to be under greater scrutiny.

Youíre playing for your places next season - would be a good place for Klopp to start from in training. Klopp needs to start being ugly with them instead of holding their hands.

I might be mistaken but I don't think Klopp has ever won at OT, and since he is around, I think it's the best United team this time around. So, for me, winning there will be a nice and great surprise
