Since you're too lazy to figure it out...

If Spurs and City win their next 2 games...they will be 1 point behind us correct? As we are only 7 ahead.

We don't play until 5:30PM next weekend, while Spuds and City would have played their weekend games BEFORE us.

Get it now?

So if we keep losing and they keep winning, we'll lose our advantage? Holy shit, that's brilliant.

If if if is the key word and it's a big one. Spurs on paper will trash Swansea but it's never that simple.

It was easy on paper for us cause Palace are shit against everybody fro top 10 but it didn't turn out in their favor, didn't?

I can assume things too. City now are motivated to beat Arsenal but they'll need a lot of energy tomorrow, to go back to London in 3 days and we'll have a day less than us to rest. So on paper it looks will be more fresh them and easier for us to win, right?

We've been in the drivers seat for too long and it feels like the season is never-ending but it's too early to panic and I think people panic cause the are still 9 games left.

Rather than Costa, my main problem from today is defence especially their 2nd goal. I am not sure why either puncheon/ zaha don't remember can run free like that. 

1st goal was dumb mistake by pedro and fantastic finish by zaha, it is what happen when you are in form

First time I go this season and they do that!!! Defending was dire for the goals and amazed we lost only 2-1. So many chances and yet wasnt gana happen 

Title race was never gana be over till the end! People celebrated way way to early...still ours lose but still..play again like today and be easier to do so

I've never been more encouraged by a loss in my life.  The attacking prowess today was beyond impressive.  At some point you have to applaud the goalkeeping and defending...oh and sign Eden to a lifetime contract!

It was a lack of concentration lapse, possibly caused by overconfidence, it's good to keep your feet on ground, too bad we couldn't win the game tho.

Know everyone's criticizing Costa and rightly so, but some others had shockers as well. I though Pedro was poor and I think that may have been David Luiz's worst performance this season. He lunged in seemingly 5 times trying to knick in front of a pass and completely missed it. Hazard was completely untouchable in the first half but then kind of went off the boil. Cesc didn't really do much in the second half either.

City game is unbelievably massive now. Win and I'll be confident we'll see the job out. Lose and I'll personally be very, very worried looking at Spuds' remaining fixtures and with Kane still to come back soon.

Would be hugely embarrassing to lose the title from where we were.

They just beat Burnley at Turf Moor. That is a bigger test than Swansea and they did it. But I agree with you, anything can happen. It is too early to panic, that's why I have calmed down already but we lose to City and Spuds beat Swansea midweek, PANIC STATIONS.

Exactly you can assume things too and I respect that. It's too bad others here just can't respect other opinions.

I don't want us to bottle the league from here. To SPUDS of all teams. I hate them so much, and giving them a glimmer of hope pisses me off. We must beat City now. Suddenly that cushion we have can go if things don't go our way like today.

Some of it is over the top from the usual suspects but what bothers me is if City win against Arsenal, it's all of a sudden a massive, massive game against them next for us. And there's no reason why they can't beat us. 

By this logic you could said one day ago that Crystal palace was a massive game, because "if we lost to Palace, and will face City with 'only' 7 points, then City might beat us, then the gap will be 4 points, then if x happen, and y happen....". 

Game against City is not more massive than other games. Gap is 7 points, if City win, gap will be 4 points, still a HUGE gap in such competitive run. We are not talking about a game where if City win, City will be one the top of the lague. The goal is not to maintain a 10 point gap, but to be at the top of the table at the end of the league. A 10 point gap means you can get bad results like this one against Palace AND lost to a difficult opponent like City, and still keep a more or less confortable lead.

City have players like Aguero, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling and Sane in their starting line-up. Matic is getting the run around by the likes of Puncheon. It's logical I'm a bit concerned they can beat us (and Arsenal who is in disarray).

People seem to have forgotten that City gave us a runaround back at the Etihad Stadium. They should have won the game but we only won thanks to some clinical counter attacks and catastrophic defending from them. Palace rode their luck against us today and I think we're need to do the same in some ways on Wednesday.

Do people really expect Pedro to do well at WB? Yeah, he scored a few goals from that position in the FA Cup but he's never fully convinced and was even given the runaround by Wolves. Asking him to do it in the Premier League, even at home, is suicidal, especially against the likes of Zaha, Puncheon etc. And not to mention, it was so awkward watching him trying to beat players from wide areas. Said this from last season, he's never looked comfortable when asked to do. Surprised Conte didn't play Willian at WB instead.
