Just wondering how many of you think we will now finish top four? I cannot see it happening and wonder just how damaging it will be to our attempts to attract the best players and also worry that being in the Europa League next season will again be detrimental to our league title hopes.

I think we will finish 5th, but feel we will win the Europa League. If that's the case then I don't see it effect us that much at all.

I think we can get top 4

Arsenal are potentiality on a verge of a meltdown and I can see them choking as usual, which could lead to end of the Wenger, the fans seem to be more intent getting rid of Wenger then supporting the club to a top 4

Liverpool are going through a inconsistent period I don't think they will have the legs to finish strong

Chelsea are likely to win the league unless they drop some results quickly (unlikely) The most consistent team in the league, getting the results

Spurs should see out either 2nd or 3rd place

City should be the other team, the key to them is keeping Aguero, Silva etc. injury free, I think City really struggle without Aguero

Overall I think 4th place is achievable, also to consider we could win the Europa League which could become more of a priority if we say lose the next 2 leagues game, I think we will finish strong.

Same argument is banded about around this time of the season about how we need champions league to attract players.

When you look at it in simple terms we've signed better player out of the champions league than not.

True DSG, have to understand that realistically now only the top Premier League teams, Barca, Madrid, Bayern, PSG can only compete with us in terms of spending money on players

The Premier League TV deal will eventually destroy the foreign leagues, United got Pogba because we outbid Madrid by 20 million.

Actually I have a concern about Spurs, they often finish the season poorly and not just under Pochettino. Remember lasagne gate? They are choke artist. Add to Pochettino demanding so much physically from his teams that they are just exhusted come the run in. Now they may have lost Kane for a while, possibly until the end of the season.

Chelsea will cruise to the title as no one will challenge them, we are too far back, Liverpool, City and Arsenal are too inconsistent and like I said I have a feeling Spurs will crumble.

I think we will find it tough. As it stands in May we have Arsenal, Spurs and City away from home. All very hard games. We also still have Chelsea at home. Another potential banana skin is Burnley away as they have shown to be very resolute at home.

I think finishing in the top 4 following this run in would give me more confidence about how we are going to be next season than winning the Europa League would. As we will have to pick up points away to the other top sides in the league when they are also fighting for a top 4 spot. We've got 12 games left in the league and in my opinion to guarantee top 4 we will need at least 7/ 8 wins.

So far in the Europa League we've beaten sides we should beat. I'd expect this to continue against Rostov on Thursday. While there are some good sides left in the competition I think we'd all be disappointed if we went out to the likes of Shakhtar or Roma even though they are good it's not like they are among the very best in Europe. However, beating the likes of City, Arsenal and Spurs away from home in big games where both sides are fighting for top four would show we are able to play against the best sides in our league in high stakes games and come out on top.

Despite all I've said I see us finishing 5th and winning the Europa League.
