We are not title favorites

So says the boss:

But a little math shows us that two teams can end up with 86 points.  If both of those teams slip, another can end up with 84.  That's a pretty darn close title race, on that is sure to go down to the wire.

Of the two teams that can reach 86 points, one has (as I write this) an 8 goal edge in differential, and three remaining games.  Assuming they win all three of those games, that differential would be up to (at least) 11, meaning the other team would have to be at least +11 i their remaining two games.  Not impossible, but not likely, either.

The next match is away at Everton who are desperately trying to make Champions League, and will be at home.  It's going to be a very, very difficult match.  But as we know, they almost all are.

C'mon CITY!
