Incredible. 2 down to Liverpool 2-2. Beat Man U away. Beat Newcastle away. Beat Spurs at home then Everton score in the 96th minute the greatest of great escapes is on

Tuesday

Sunday
Palace v WBA - we win
Swansea v Stoke - Stoke win
Southampton v Man City - Man City to win by 4 clear goals?

Yes?

We need a goal swing of 5 (because Southampton have us on the head to head if we only have a swing of 4)

i.e.
WBA 1-0
Man City 4-0

or variations or that

WBA 2-0
Man City 3-0

etc?

is how i'm reading it

Question,we all know about our/ the great escape but do you remember Leicester's escape 3 seasons ago,if we/sorry when we beat CP would Big Dave's efforts be the greatest ever escape and being named manager of the month/year ever?

IF we make the Great Escape pt II, it would mean both times we were managed by previous players of our club....

This reason is not true. Head-to-head record means nothing in determining league position here; instead it comes down to goals scored.

Sadly, Southampton edge us on that also by 5 goals - this is more than the 'goal difference' difference, so we can only jump ahead of them on goal difference alone. Level is not enough.

Therefore, assuming they draw midweek and since we have to win on the final day (providing at least +1 GD), we need Man City to beat them by at most 4, minus any MORE we win by against palace.

I just hope Uncle Roy gives us a helpinghand in our last game  ;D

So that's by 3 then if we beat Palace by 1, or 2 if we win by 2...?

I'm going to wait till after tues before obsessing about this
