Big month for us. Ignoring this weekends cup match against Norwich, our next 5 x fixtures during a busy February could well go a long way to determining whether we’ll still be in the Europa league conversation come the latter stages of the season. With the Arsenal away fixture being rearranged for a Thursday night (24th), our next 5 are -

Thu 10th: Arsenal (h)
Sun 13th: Spurs (a)
Sun 20th: Leicester (h)
Thu 24th: Arsenal (a)
Sun 27th: West Ham (a)

Tough run of fixtures. What are we predicting?

7 points at the most I think and that could be a stretch with the fixtures. Win and a draw against Arsenal, win against Leicester, losses at West Ham and Spurs. I'd take that

I'd be happy enough with a win and 3 draws as it would broadly mean not losing ground to those around us in the head to head fixtures. Anything more would be a bonus.

7 points and through to the 5th round of the cup would do me.

It's worth pointing out other teams fixtures:

West Ham

Watford - h
Leicester - a
Newcastle - h
Wolves - h

Man Utd

Burnley - a
Southampton - h
Brighton - h
Leeds - a
Watford - h

Spurs

Southampton - h
Wolves - h
Man City - a
Burnley - a
Leeds - a

Arsenal

Wolves - a
Brentford - h
Wolves - h

We'll give Arsenal a game but with them only playing three times benefits them whereas Spurs have got 5 games plus the FA Cup and United have 5 games plus FA Cup and the UCL against Atleti.

6-7 points and I'd be ok with that. It's realistic and we can't stay on a crazy run without losing forever.

Don't think we have anything to fear with West Ham and Leicester games, I'd like to think we have a chance of getting points from Arsenal and Spurs too.....I'll be disappointed with less than 7, hoping for a few more.

Three trips to London within a fortnight. Going to cost me a fortune.

8 points please. We certainly shouldn't be fearing Arsenal, and Leicester have been below us nearly all season.

On which note, any tickets to the last two away games that are going spare I'd be happy to pay for... living in London is rubbish for getting up to Wolverhampton and I've had to resort to watching AFC Wimbledon instead!

Personally, I don't think there's much between all of us, Spurs, Arsenal, Leicester & West Ham - so literally all of the games this month could go either way by a single goal. I actually think we're more organised than them all.

I'll predict 9 points which should keep us in the mix, although some of the other sides around us have more favourable fixtures on paper.

Leicester are a better side but they've had injury problems, particularly in defence.

Tielemans has gone to pot and Soumare has been very average too. I'd say we're a better outfit than they are all things considered right now.
