If you’d have asked me a few weeks ago whether or not 4th would be good enough I would have turned my nose up at the thought of finishing 4th.
Fast forward a few weeks and if you offered me 4th place now I’d take it and put it in my bumbag and you wouldn’t see me for dust. We have blown a 10 point lead from the chasing pack, there is still every chance we can finish 3rd but we are going to need to up our game.
I can’t explain why our form has dipped, we look a shadow of the free-flowing side we were just over a month ago. I’d happily take 4th place now and take my chances that Chelsea don’t win the CL and that we can win our qualifier next season. There is a real fear now that Chelsea and Arsenal have both found form and that we could finish 5th. Just a few weeks ago we were talked about as title contenders. Doesn’t bear thinking about does it.
4th place? Would you take it now?
