Chelsea’s race for the Premier League top four – Champions League football secured

Arsenal's defeat at Newcastle has guaranteed us a spot in next season's Champions League. 

The Gunners realistically had to win at St James' Park to keep the Blues in the top-four race, but they succumbed 2-0. We are four points ahead of them and they only have one game left. 

We of course have two matches remaining and with our superior goal difference, a point is realistically all we need to guarantee third. Tottenham need a point at Norwich to finish above Arsenal, who host Everton. 

Currently 3rd - Chelsea - 70 points - GD +42

Currently 4th - Tottenham - 68 points - GD +24

Currently 5th - Arsenal - 66 points - GD +9
