Race for the English Premier League top 4
The race for the top four in the Premier League is so tight still and there are only two games left in the season. In the last couple of weeks, it seems like the teams that are fighting for those spots don’t even want to make it as they have all been losing or drawing. The last two game weekends, Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham have all failed to win. That was also coupled with midweek losses for both Arsenal and Manchester United. The points difference between United in 6th and Spurs in 4th is only 5 points, which means all teams could still qualify. Realistically, United have put themselves in a bad position as they would need to win both remaining games and hope that Arsenal and Chelsea lose theirs.
However, Arsenal have been in terrible form, losing four out of the last five matches. With that being said, they have a home game against Brighton who are fighting relegation, and then their last game is away at Burnley, which can be a tough place to go to. Chelsea also have not won in three, and host Watford in the next round which is then followed by a rejuvenated Leicester under Brendan Rodgers. They will know that if they can win both of those games, they will also secure their place in next seasons Champions League. Spurs are in the best position as their qualification is in their own hands because they sit at the top of the pack. However, they need to balance both the last two league games, as well as, their Champions League semi-final matches against Ajax. Spurs got a win during the last midweek games, in between their two losses against City and West Ham. They next have to go face Bournemouth away but will be hoping they can replicate their performance in the reverse fixture where they won 5-0. Whoever finishes in the top four, it has been a very interesting battle to watch.
