They had nothing to be proud of for half the season, so why would they stop their run once they were sure to avoid relegation? Also, as polish said already, they are VERY motivated to show they can stay at the club and get those contract renewals at much higher rates or at least to get as good of an offer as possible this summer. You could say the same about United, but very few of them look like they’re playing for their futures or to repay the patience of the fans — and they’ve been in contention for CL spots. It’s a noticeable trend that some teams lose focus late in the season, either distracted by Europe (West Ham and Leicester) or not having a specific goal to chase (arguably Villa have been sleepwalking a bit). Sometimes it saves relegation battlers for whom the greater motivation offsets their lesser skill. It’s a credit to the spirit Howe has instilled that this team are keeping their momentum.
