I don't follow football & United too closely lately, so I'm not sure why Chelsea is "out of the equation"?
1 Liverpool 37 50 96
2 Manchester City 37 62 78
3 Manchester United 37 28 63
4 Chelsea 37 13 63
5 Leicester City 37 28 62
Thanks...SUBXERO wrote: ↑Thu Jul 23, 2020 7:34 amSince we play Leicester leading them by a point, we only need to avoid defeat so they couldn't leapfrog us.
In other words, a win there would mean we'd end up in third for sure. Any other result would put us into a three sided equation with Chelsea playing Wolves at home themselves.
Untied win -> 3rd
United draw -> 3rd if Chelsea don't win / 4th if Chelsea win
United lose -> 4th if Chelsea lose / 5th if Chelsea don't lose
All the players need to know is that if we lose we're out, we draw/win we're inRedSte wrote: ↑Fri Jul 24, 2020 12:03 amWhen you factor in all the combinations of outcomes from the Leics v United and Chelsea v Wolves games, there are 9 possibilities:
In 5 of these United finish 3rd
In 2 of these United finish 4th
In 2 of these United finish 5th
This means statistically we have a 7/9 chance of finishing in the top 4..but football isnt played by mathematical formulas fortunately (or unfortunately!)
