    Whichever of these sides finishes as runners-up will have accumulated more points than is usually required to win the division. From this point of view it’ll be disappointing to read the popular press describing such a campaign as a ‘failure’ or a crisis’. But hey-ho!

    Even six points from their final two matches might, conceivably at least, not be enough, though. The gap between the two clubs in terms of goal difference remains eight goals – a tall order to close in just two matches, but not an insurmountable obstruction.

    Being pedantic, the gap if City would be to win both games would be at least 10 (based on 1 nil wins) so UTD would have to score 6 in at least one game. Not going to happen so your goal difference claim is a bit suspect.
