After a big weekend in the Premier League, the race for the top four is open wide. It’s anyones guess who will make it into the Champions League spots come the end of the season.
Manchester City, who looked nailed on for a spot in the top four a month ago, look like they may fall into the scrap. They have 49 points, with 5th placed Tottenham on 43 points.
There are 14 Premier League games remaining this season and there are still seven teams that can contend for the Champions League spots, with Chelsea’s spot all but secured. Arsenal’s loss at White Hart Lane has dented their chances, but they still have the experience and quality to get there. The Gunners are just 2 points behind 4th placed Manchester United. Southampton kept up their charge with an injury time winner against QPR to stay third. Liverpool play Tottenham on Tuesday, a game that will have big implications in the race for top four.
How do you think the top four will look come the end of the season? Here’s what people are saying on Twitter about the standings now:
Arsenal do not play a team that finished in the top four last season until April 4th. Chance to climb the table in the coming weeks.

4 of our last 6 fixtures are Man City home. Chelsea away. Everton away. Arsenal home. Top four comes down to these unreal games.

Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Man United for top four. Burnley, QPR and Leicester to go back down. #Prediction

A win vs Spurs on Tuesday will be huge in terms of a top four push.

I still think Southampton will get top four.

Arsenal will still finish comfortably in the top four. Spurs may join them.

For top four I'm most worried about: Man Utd, Southampton, Liverpool, Spurs – in that order

More worried about Southampton than Spurs for that top four place.

4 – Southampton have won four successive away games in the top-flight for the first time in their history. Surge.
