Chelsea's race for the Premier League Top Four - two games to go

The contest to qualify for next season's Champions League via Premier League positions looks like it will go down to the wire...

The teams placed third to sixth in the Premier League continue to drop points, so the Blues remain in fourth having drawn away to one of our direct rivals for Champions League qualification, Manchester United in Sunday afternoon's game at Old Trafford. 

Here we look at the last two rounds of fixtures for Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Man United who are battling it out for two spots in the top four and set a poll question for you to answer...

Here are the standings at the top of the Premier League table following the weekend games. 

Five points now separate third and sixth place. The Blues remain in reach of Tottenham who are two points ahead of us in third place, should Spurs slip up in their final two games.

We are now two in front of Arsenal and although we have a +1 better goal difference, the closeness to theirs means we still need to win our two remaining games if we are not to risk the Gunners drawing level on points and overtaking us on goal difference.

Manchester United are not out of it yet, but are three points behind us and with a goal difference so inferior it is looking like being equivalent to an extra point for Chelsea.

All four teams now have one game remaining at home and one away. 

Check out the full fixtures below.


Currently 3rd - Tottenham - 70 points - GD +29 - two games left


Currently 4th - Chelsea - 68 points - GD +21 - two games to play


Currently 5th - Arsenal - 66 points - GD +20 - two games left


Currently 6th - Man United - 65 points - GD +13 - two games to play
