Which of the top 3 teams has the easiest run-in?
Sky Sports have compared the remaining games for Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham.
On paper, the Reds have the easiest streak. Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea are going to be tough to beat but the likes of Fulham, Huddersfield, Cardiff and Newcastle don't pose a big threat. Some of those teams are almost certain to drop to the Championship, others are struggling at the bottom of the table. The average position for the remaining Liverpool's opponents is 11.8.
Tottenham will have to travel to Liverpool and Manchester City, besides their opponents' average position stands at 10.7. 4 of their remaining 12 fixtures are against the top 8 teams. 3 are away while Liverpool and Man City only have to travel once to face the top 8 opponents. Arguably the trickiest of run-ins.
The reigning champs might drop more points, of course, but neither Liverpool nor Tottenham should seriously count on that. In their 6 remaining home games the Cityzens are expected to pick up maximum points. And among the sides they will play away, only Manchester United and Bournemouth are inside the top 11.
