Even after the defeat at West on Saturday, we are still 2 points ahead of last season’s schedule.
Last season in the 29th game we lost 2-0 at Liverpool but then we started a four-game winning streak so after 33 games we were on 41 points and safe – and we then lost the next four games.
So it was up and down last season.
Let’s hope Sean Longstaff – shown with Rafa Benitez – doesn’t miss many games
We have a better goal difference at the moment than last season too.

And we are still 7 points above the drop zone if you include goal difference and 6 points behind 10th placed Everton if you don’t include goal difference.
And here are the next six games we have to play.

There are at least four games there where we can get a win.
How many points do you think we can take from the next 6 games?
