With last weekend's astonishing Premier League results, the race to break into the Premier League Top 4 will go down to the wire. After Liverpool's loss to Chelsea on Sunday, the UEFA Champions League (UCL) finalists face the real threat of getting ousted from the Top Four.
In an incredible two day's of football, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were not able to register wins. With the exception of City who were held to a goalless draw by a stubborn Huddersfield Town, all the remaining three lost.
While City and United are confirmed champions and runners-up, Spurs' loss to bottom-placed West Bromwich gives Chelsea a real opportunity to barge into the Top Four.
Chelsea are just 2 points behind Tottenham's 71 and their remaining games are against Huddersfield and Newcastle United. Tottenham have two games remaining, too, they being against Newcastle and Leicester City. The Spurs have the advantage of hosting both the fixtures at home in Wembley.
Liverpool are especially in a precarious stage with only one game in hand. In their final match of the season, an away game at Falmer Stadium, the Reds will face an upbeat Brighton & Hove Albion, who have just come out of a win against Manchester United.
If Chelsea were to win both their remaining games, Liverpool will be left with no option other than to beat Brighton. If that were to happen, Chelsea will be on equal points with Liverpool on 74, but will lose out on goal difference. Spurs will move to 77 points and the 3rd spot in event of positive outcomes from their 2 games in hand.
Even if they were to lose in one of those games they will be on 74, with a much better goal-average than Chelsea's. So for the Spurs, the scene looks less daunting than Liverpool as far as a place in the Top Four goes.
Chelsea will need to win both their outings and the worrying thing for Liverpool is that the Blues might well come out winners given the momentum they are in. The scramble for the top Four spots of the Premier League obviously holds immense significance as it's a passport to next season's UEFA Champions League.
So what happens if Liverpool were to slip to the fifth position when the season ends on May 13th, Sunday?. In such an event, the only way they can qualify for the 2018-19 UCL is to emerge champions by beating Real Madrid at Kyiv on the 27th of May.
Nerve-wracking times, indeed, for Chelsea and Liverpool fans in particular.
