Big game this one - win this and we have a very nice cushion between us and Arsenal, however Man Utd would become our nearest rivals for 4th spot.

Players get a much needed break before this one with no midweek fixture and we may have a proper striker in time for kick off.

Would take a draw = keep them 6 points away, but United are steaming up the table........

Spurs winning would have been better for top 4 hopes.

After yesterday I think Man United pose a bigger threat to us getting into the top four than Arsenal.  However, Arsenal will throw the kitchen sink at us so I think this is going to be a really difficult game. But I think we're better than Arsenal in almost every position on the pitch (bar striker) so I would expect a win.

True but I can't bring myself to want the Spuds to win....ever. Hopefully, we get the win, the Spuds lose at the weekend and we have an extra club as a buffer between us and Man Utd.

If I was a Spud, I would be looking nervously over my shoulder. They have lost Son for a few games, and Kane limped off. Their squad is the smallest out of the top 6 possibly, and they are looking stretched. Sissoko, who is hit and miss also went off injured. 

Going to be an interesting finale.

Only if Giroud is fully fit! 😉

If they do, I think that will play in to our hands somewhat, we struggle against the teams that sit deep and defend us looking to counter, so having them come at us could work out well - I hope.

I don't 'expect' a win, but I do wonder if Arsenal needing to beat us and very likely coming at us will be helpful; we've really toughened up defensively and have the players to exploit any space left open. In an odd way it could prove a less difficult game than Newcastle or Southampton.
