The chase for Premier League Top Four spots is about to reach its climax and which team will occupy the third and fourth position is anyone’s guess.
Up until the third week of February it looked like Tottenham had all but secured the third place while also challenging for Premier League title along with Manchester city and Liverpool. But their recent dive in form with three defeats and a draw in the last four fixtures not only crashed their title hopes but also has put their Champions League qualification spot in jeopardy.
Following their recent 2-0 victory over Manchester United last sunday has given Arsenal much needed boost to their Top Four hopes.With just 8 matches remaining in the 2018/2019 season, Arsenal have seemingly favorable upcoming fixtures comparing to their Top Four rivals at least on paper. Here are their remaining matches until the end of the season.
Chelsea are currently sitting at 6th position after the 2-0 loss to everton last sunday. After staying in contention for Premier League title in the first half of the season, Maurizio Sarri’s side have experienced inconsistent form in the last couple of months with demoralizing 4-0 and 6-0 hammering away to at hands of Bournemouth and Manchester city respectively. Chelsea are in need of a consistent run of form if they are to finish in the Top Four as there are some challenging games are ahead of them in the remaining fixtures of their season.
United’s resurgence under their Caretaker Manager Ole Gunner Solksjaer has been monumental, with their first defeat coming only on Ole’s 13th Premier League Match losing 0-2 against Arsenal On March 10th. What seemed like a Miracle in the December under Mourinho, as described by the Former Manager itself, United now are very much back in the race for the Top Four and they have put themselves on a great position to finish the Season on a high provided that they don’t lose their way.
