Fantastic opportunity, its in our hands now, you couldnt see us having this chance a couple of games ago.I hope the Liverpool game decides things and we dont slip up against the other three teams.

4 games - we need to treat them like cup finals, think we have the players to cover them just about - Salah and Matic always fresh for the league, Ba coming in to form

I know we are all excited already about our title chances and that game at Anfield next weekend (I am too) but let's make sure we get the job done against Sunderland first this weekend. Otherwise, all this talk will be rather pointless.

Palace isn't a foregone conclusion. They could follow the same fate as us when we went there.

Maybe so but the situation will be slightly different for them then and before. Palace were still fighting for their survival and needed the points when they played us. Now, they are already safe wih 40 points and may well take their eyes off the ball when Liverpool and City visit Selhurst Park.

That could be the case, but hopefully not. Pulis has always had a good home record against the big boys. Let's hope that record continues.

True and hopefully but his current Palace side aren't as good as his Stoke one.

I think by the time we play Cardiff in the 38th they'll already be relegated and their spirit broken because of it, which is good for us.

We have an impressive record at home this season, so while Sunderland and Norwich will draw their blood in those matches at the Bridge fighting against relegation, I actually believe we're nearly unbeatable (even when it comes to draws and not only defeats) at the Bridge.

Mourinho made our turf a fortress again and Eto'o's been really good playing there for us. So I believe while those two matches aren't to be taken lightly, I'm quite confident we'll get the job done at home. We only had issues recently about playing SMALLER teams away. We've been pretty good playing big teams away, which could be a good scenario for us.

A big team away - but one that doesn't know what it is to fight for a relevant title in a very long time, with an unexperienced manager in this stage and who may not overcome the psychological pressure and challenge of depending only on themselves to win a title 24 years later.

2 smaller teams at home - as said above, we don't vacillate in those

1 relegation team away at the last game week - when they could already be relegated mathematically and come play us with a broken spirit.

In the mix of it all, just two UCL semifinal matches. Sorry if I'm being arrogant about our chances, but in situations like those that this Chelsea have been showing character in the last few seasons. When we need to give that one last breath to finish the sprint we just do it. And we have a winning spirit unlike Liverpool at the moment.

Things won't be easy, but that 'Failure or Success season' thread could end up being the most idiotic thread ever opened in this forum...

So, the permutations for the title are...

Chelsea - Win last 4 games and we win the title.

Liverpool - They can afford to win 3 and draw 1 OR win 2 and draw 2 (provided one of them is against us) and still win the title. :rant: that goal difference!

To be honest if we don't win it becuase of goal difference, I will be incredibly pissed off. Much more so than if it were becuase Liverpool beat us at Anfield.
