The end of the Premier League season is shaping up to be an exciting one despite the absence of a title race.
Manchester City may have ensured a one-horse race for the title, but there is still plenty to sort out between now and the end of the season, and the race for top four is particularly intense.
Chelsea are leading the race for fourth as things stand, four points behind Leicester City in third and three points ahead of West Ham United in fifth after beating the Hammers last time out.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham are attempting to claw their back into the race, four and five points behind Chelsea respectively, though there’s also a top six race to iron out.
While Tottenham and Liverpool will have their eyes on fourth, it’s more likely each of them will have to battle it out for sixth with just three points separating West Ham in fifth and Everton in eighth, and the Toffees also have a game in hand.
Only fifth and sixth get a Europa League spot this season with seventh spot securing a Europa Conference League play-off spot as part of the new competition.
