The race for seventh

Although we had a setback at Chelsea last week, we did not lose much ground in the race for seventh given that West Ham only managed a draw at home to West Brom. However, Wigan and Fulham moved ahead of us and Tottenham are now on our tails.

If 53 points is the magic number, we need to achieve 18 points from now nine games, whilst West Ham (the side in possession) require only 13 points to secure seventh spot based on the calculations from my original post on this topic.

A win at home to Sunderland on Sunday would do wonders for our hopes of achieving this, especially as though West Ham have a tricky looking fixture away to Blackburn at Ewood Park.
