Browse By

With Arsenal gaining an invaluable last minutes win over top 4 rivals Wolves, which of the 5 teams fighting for the last Champions League spot are in best shape?

4th – Manchester United           Form WDDWW        Points:46           Played:26

Next 5 league games: Watford (H)    Manchester City (A)  ,Tottenham (H)  ,Liverpool (A) , Leicester (H)

Currently the club occupying the 4th position due to their impressive recent form, albeit having played some more games than their rivals. Probably the best squad on paper boasting the likes of Ronaldo, Fernandes and Pogba although it is still to be seen whether this squad can gel well together to stay consistent until the end of the season.

5th – Arsenal                                Form LDWWW          Points:45          Played:24

Next 5 league games:  Watford (A), Leicester (H), Liverpool (H), Aston Villa (A), Crystal Palace(A)

Arguably the team in the driving seat as, should this young team win their games in hand, they will be in 4th position. After a slump in January Arsenal are right back at it recording some crucial tight wins against rivals Wolves. It remains to be seen whether Arsenal can capitalise on their games in hand, however, the signs are bright for a first return to Europe’s top competition in 5 years.

6th – West Ham United             Form LLWDD              Points:42            Played:26

Next 5 league games: Wolves(H), Liverpool(A), Aston Villa (H), Tottenham (A), Everton(H)

Currently in a patch of bad form it is vital that West Ham start picking up more points to keep their hopes alive, this obviously starts in a massive next game against Wolves. With such a small squad compared to their competitors it will be interesting to see how they cope in the run in especially as they fight on 3 fronts: Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup.

7th – Wolves                                  Form WLWWL            Points:40           Played:25

Next 5 league games: Crystal Palace (H), Watford (H), Everton (A), Leeds (H), Aston Villa (H)

Despite two desperately unlucky losses against Arsenal recently, it still looks good for Wolves to at least return to Europe in some capacity. With a game in hand and a kind looking fixture list should Wolves keep up their defensive record and start to score a few more goals, they could be the dark horses in this race.

8th – Tottenham                         Form WLWWL           Points:39             Played:24

Next 5 league games: Leeds (A), Everton (H), Manchester United (A), Brighton (A), West Ham (H)

With 3 losses in the last 5 games its taken a turn for the worst for Antonio Conte’s men, but with 2 matches in hand all hope is not lost. With a very impressive recent win over Man City, Tottenham are always are dangerous team but they just need to stay consistent and win the upcoming games.
