You think Liverpool don't have the horses stay up but you mention Everton and Spurs??? How are they any deeper than Liverpool, especially Everton? Do you mean May 1st? As far as Suarez/Sturridge ever hit a drop in form or knock, the same could be said for any of the top teams. If City lose Yaya and Aguero, if Chelsea loses Hazard and Eto'o, if Arsenal lose Giroud and Cazorla....etc etc. Like I said at the beginning, Liverpool will be in the CL. Of the 12 matches left, 5 are home, 7 away. All the top 7 teams left are to be played at home outside United. Liverpool have one of the best home records in the EPL, scoring the most of anyone at home and 2nd best defensive record at home. The only teams in the top half we play away are United, Southampton, and Swansea. Also Liverpool have no other engagements, City are in CL, Capital, and FA, Chelsea in the CL, United in the CL, Spurs are in Europa, Everton in FA, and Arsenal are in FA and CL. Most likely this will cause dropped points especially the squads that lack depth, United, Everton, Spurs, and Arsenal to an extent.

No EPL clubs advance? Highly unlikely.


If I was 100% right 100% of the time I would be super rich and probably wouldn't be on these forums. But tricky round for EPL teams in my opinion.

As much as I hate to say it, United has it fairly easy, Olympiakos just sold their best striker to Fulham in Mitroglou. Chelsea should handle Galatasaray with ease. The only tricky ones are City and Arsenal. I see Arsenal losing of course, and City being a toss up.

No epl team has a chance to win the champions league. Wouldnt be surprised if no epl teams advance. im still going with Madrid, Munich final, that is if they dont play each other before.

I meant May 1st yes. And I hope your right as like I stated I like what BR has done. I just dont think they'll hold up. I cant see any scenario where Chelsea, Arsenal, and City dont qualify so that leaves oen spot for United, Liverpool, Evertion, and Spurs (yes Im including United as they have the talent on paper to win 7-8 in a row so although unexpected I wouldnt be shocked to see it happen) Its going to be the best finish to an EPL season in awhile as you'll have battles for 1st, 4th, and relegation. Not too often all three are so hotly contested

Don't be surprised if Liverpool is battling for the league.....though I guess you would be because you don't even think they will finish inside the top 4.

plus LFC beat spurs 5-0 and everton 4-0 in recent matches...

agree they dont have the depth of city and chelsea but their best 11 is about as good as anyone

be surprised if they did not pull away from spurs, everton and united

Psg won already quaters for them. Man city has to win by at least 2 if not their done. I think.barca will tie them 1/1.

I wouldn't say it's curtains. If City can hold them to one goal then they have a good chance especially now that Demichelis is forced out the next leg. It will force them to open up at Nou Camp and they are more than capable of scoring....not to mention Aguero might be back by then.

City has it all to do at the Nou Camp...can't see them scoring two unanswered goals away in Spain.

Doesn't have to be a shutout.....it could just be a shootout. With Aguero, I wouldn't doubt it could happen. City will be forced open, which is a good thing. They tried to play things too tight.
