If we still have a four point gap at the top after the game against Man City on Jan 3, I will give myself permission to start to believe this year might be the one. It has been brilliant so far, but there’s such a long way to go that I’m resisting the urge to get ahead of myself, even though it’s tempting!

Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks to Prof for the APLT!

Chelsea have gone into a right tailspin.  And I'd really love to see City dip below that 90 points line at some point.

Christmas fixtures are a good indicator of who are serious challengers for the title, Teams who go on a tailspin in this period tend to have a lot of catching up to do. We also have not exactly fared very well during this period in past seasons

It's very pretty but I see this as definitely a repeat of 2013-14. Either Spurs or Man City will win it. I think Man City as they are the most experienced.

Someone once said there was a rumour of a curse on LFC since the early 90s. To be the only club in the last ten years to have been leading at Christmas and not win the league (twice - 2008/9 and 2013/14).

By the way there's no chance we are beating Newcastle. Just as Crystal Palace have apologetically bought us a Christmas present so, uncharacteristically shall Benitez take it away.

Is that enough mockers?

Your last line has the opposite effect!  :no

Hasn't anyone noticed that since we've been applying the law correctly, our form has been great?

Single handedly you've undone all the hard work and we're destined to crash down the league.

Yeah I fully expect City to overtake us by the end of our game at the Etihad and then it'll be a long slog through January once Salah and Van Dijk get injured.

Well they are currently on course to get over 90 pts if they stay the same ratios so I would imagine it's true as they had a decent end to last season.

No, we need volunteers to put their testicles on the menu for every CITY game.

In fact, we should be equal opportunities here, testes and ovaries all round.  No need to be shy, girls!

that includes the two seasons we were top at Christmas and failed to get the title. I don’t see why it should provide optimism.

Yeah that was the point of the article. We get more points but we still lose. I was just being happy we lose the title with more points than ever.

Defensively Newcastle have been horrible this year and so unlike a Benitez team.  They did draw 0-0 at home with Fulham but that was much more to do with Fulham's profligacy in front of goal. 

As long as we show up and have players running in behind them where they've looked most vulnerable we should be fine.

We weren't clinical enough in open play, and we haven't been properly clinical in open play all season. It was a good victory overall, but I fear that the lack of composure in the final third will catch up with us very soon. We have some tough games coming up and I fully expect us to drop back to a more customary kind of position in the APLT.

We'll not be able to sustain this. Expect a drop to below the -1 point as the season goes on, while City get back to their stride and slowly rise up with Spurs, to make it a two-horse race by March.

What are the blue lines? I understand the home and away sets together total 90 points, but I thought the premise is that all home games must be won. The blue lines suggest we can afford to drop 6 points at home and still be on course, with 6 points recouped away.
