Never this century (ie 12 seasons) has 70 points not equated to fourth. Once it meant third.

We have only four more games where we can pick up points on last season:

Fulham (a)

Tottenham (h)

Liverpool (a)

Man Utd (a)

As an aside: All bar the trip to Old Trafford were under Di Matteo’s stewardship last season.

In other words we can lose all four as long as we win:

WBA (h)

West Ham (Wolves) (h)

Southampton (Blackburn) (a)

Sunderland (h)

Swansea (h)

Aston Villa (a)

Everton (h)
