If Leicester win by one goal and we draw with Burnley we’d go into the last game level on points and GD with Chelsea. 
 

If Leicester beat them by two then our GD would be +1 better, etc.

From the Mirror.

 

 

Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are seeking revenge after Brendan Rodgers’ men came out on top at Wembley with a 1-0 win.

Victory would take Chelsea above the Foxes by one point, still needing a win from their final league game at Aston Villa to confirm a top four finish.

 

That would leave Leicester and Liverpool to battle for the other spot, and they both currently sit on +21 goal difference, boasting near identical scoring records.

We could then be in for a frankly bonkers finish.

 

If the Blues were to win 1-0 on Tuesday night and the Foxes triumph 3-0 at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday - all while the Redmen win 3-2 at Burnley and beat Crystal Palace 2-1 - Leicester and Liverpool would then have identical points and scoring records (not just in terms of goal difference but for goals scored and conceded, too). 

If somehow that scenario occurs, the sides would be split by their head-to-head record.

This would favour Liverpool as they beat the FA Cup winners 3-0 at Anfield before losing 3-1 at the King Power in February.

That 4-3 aggregate score would be enough to get the better of the Foxes.

 

Three points would see Leicester guarantee themselves Champions League football due to Chelsea thus being unable to amass 69 points, which Rodgers’ side would already be sitting on heading into the finale.

That would mean Liverpool still have to worry about themselves, though, knowing two wins is also more points than Tuchel’s men could muster.

Chelsea would have to win their remaining game at Aston Villa and hope the Redmen slip up at Turf Moor or against Palace at Anfield.

Both Liverpool and the Blues could finish on 67 points, too, if Klopp and co pick up four points and Chelsea come out victorious at Villa Park following a midweek defeat.

Goal difference would then come into it, with Tuchel’s side needing to overcome whatever the Redmen do in their final two outings.

 

A point a piece would leave neither Tuesday’s hosts nor Leicester safe inside the top four, making for a grandstand final day.

Stalemate at the Bridge would leave both sides hunting for a win on the final day, with Rodgers and his former employers, Liverpool, qualifying if all three sides end with a win and the Redmen beat Burnley on Wednesday.

If Leicester drew at Tottenham Hotspur after drawing on Tuesday, the Blues would sneak in on goal difference - regardless of by how wide of a margin their win in the Midlands could be on Sunday.

In short, a draw would best suit Klopp’s outfit on the balance of things.

 

Oh, and West Ham and Spurs would need goal difference to separate them for fourth place in the unlikely event that Chelsea lose both of their games and Liverpool only manage one or zero points - while the two outsiders win their remaining fixtures - as each aren’t mathematically out of the picture yet. 

With so many potential outcomes, only one thing is guaranteed: drama.

A Leicester win or a draw means we have it 100% in our own hands.....that for me is best place to be.

 

 

 

 


That may be so, although I’d say a big Chelsea win is the best outcome, purely on the basis that Leicester are more likely to drop points vs Spurs than Chelsea against a Villa side in terrible form. That means drawing one of our last two wouldn’t necessarily be fatal; if we won the other, Leicester would have to beat Spurs to finish 4th.

But a chelsea means both of them can finish at least level with us whatever we do.

 

Whereas a draw or a leicester win means 2 wins for us 100% guarantees us a top 4 place....and as an added bonus would mean the chelsea vermin miss out....unless they beat the cheats in the european cup final.

 

I'd rather have it 100% in our own hands going into last 2 games myself.

Was thinking if Leicester win they will head straight out on the piss. This opens up the possibility of third and also the chance of qualifying with just 4 more points.

Probably been mentioned but what happens if Chelsea finish 5th and win the CL. Does 4th miss out or do we field 5 PL teams next season ?


All 5 sides qualify.

Would be a significant week in Rodgers' career if his side get the three points tonight. I'm not sure how seriously I'd take domestic trophies in Scotland, but an FA Cup win and a second win over Chelsea would show that he's able to compete against the Oil/Petrol clubs. Would be something of a victory for football in that regard.

We should stop worrying about what other teams do and just focus on beating Burnley and Palace. One team that has beaten us already this season, and another which will be anxious for revenge after being trounced 7-0 at home.

Leicester need to win because Spurs are desperate to keep themselves out of the Europa Conference League and will give it a real go on Sunday.

Chelsea's visit to Villa could be tricky with fans and probably Grealish back.

So based on that, this cchappas fella reckons we have a 56.2216% of finishing top four, regardless of the Chelsea v Leicester result.

 

But has he accounted for the fact we're fuckin shite?

Haha. Took me by surprise that one. Fucking spat out my non-existent beverage.

Well I did say the shite where clutching at straws. From the people's club forum.

 

Yes.If Chelsea beat Man City in CL final they obviously qualify as winners. Then come City , United and then 3rd place in premier league. We want Leicester to beat Chelsea tomorrow to ensure they finish 3rd. Then Liverpool will not be allowed in due to 4 clubs from one country rule.
