Which power house club won't make the top 4?

The top four race is one of the most interesting in years. Not only are there several teams involved, but sides have looked totally out of the race, and then come back in to be favourites, and also dropped down from being in the title race.

The Red Devils

Under Jose Mourinho, Manchester United had no chance it seemed – now they could be set for a top three finish. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned the fortunes of the club around, and they look far better. Not only that, but Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have shone. The club look totally different and are now 6/1 with Coral to make the top four. However, they were exposed against Arsenal, and could well face similar issues against Manchester City who they face soon. In fact, they could drop down to sixth given how close the race is.

The Gunners

Arsenal meanwhile took a lot of people by surprise when they outwitted Man United and took all three points. They might be struggling in the Europa League, but they are in the top four race, and under Unai Emery, are capable of actually taking points from their top six rivals. The bookies make them 13/8 with BetVictor to finish in the top four, and they’re also set to finish with more points than in recent years under Arsene Wenger. However, they are still very weak at the back, and can be caught out – especially against bogey sides.

Spurs

How Tottenham Hotspur have fallen. They’ve been title contenders but are now looking at missing out on the top four. Since the return of Harry Kane, they’ve failed to win a league game and their form has fallen off a cliff. They’re also into the next round of the Champions League and have that to contend with. They were heavy favourites for the top four earlier in the season, but are now 4/6 with Betway. They’re still the ones people expect to find a way, and the quality of Kane should see them through, along with the return of Dele Alli come the final weeks of the season.

The blues

Chelsea are the hardest to predict of the contenders, with Maurizio Sarri a dead man walking. Their line-up is usually easy to predict, and Gonzalo Higuain is still settling in, leaving them short of goals. Eden Hazard is world class, but can only do so much, as we saw against Wolves. The bookmakers tip them at 2/5 with Bet365 to end up in the Champions League places, and it will all depend on if Eden Hazard can drag them into the top four spots, with the fans losing patience each time points are dropped and the same old substitutions are made.

Liverpool and Manchester City may be making the headlines in terms of the most exciting title race we’ve seen in years, but the race for the top four is equally fascinating and the four main contenders change positions week on week.

So, who do you think will make the final cut and who will miss out?
