Are all the Big Six clubs still in the hunt?
In short, not really. If the bookmakers have got this one right, three of the traditional Big Six are set to miss out on Champions League football.
Of course, there are only four spots up for grabs in the first place so there will always be those left standing when the music stops, but Arsenal have been particularly underwhelming this season.
The Gunners are paying for a miserable run between September and December which saw them pick up eight points from a possible 36.
Three wins from three has put Liverpool (sixth) right back in the frame, though Jurgen Klopp’s men were less-than convincing as they squeezed past Aston Villa at Anfield on Saturday.
Chelsea (fifth) will also have something to say about Liverpool’s Champions League charge, with Thomas Tuchel’s side sitting on the coat-tails of the top four. Leicester look primed to crash the Champions League party, while West Ham are fourth with just seven games to play.
Who are the outsiders?
So we know who the favourites are, but where is the value in the market?
Spurs (9/1), have now dropped five points since the international break and have a run of crucial fixtures on the immediate horizon which will likely define their season.
They face Everton and City in the next three before a more favourable sequence in the final weeks of the season. A final-day showdown with Leicester, whose Champions League bid tailed off around this stage last season, could be huge for both sides.
West Ham (7/4) are another side well in the conversation. Few had them breaking into the top four at the start of the campaign, but they have put themselves right in the frame and who would bet against them now?
Only Manchester City have picked up more points per game than the Hammers since the start of 2021, and David Moyes will know the importance of avoiding defeat against top-four rivals Chelsea later this month.
However Everton’s (40/1) race could well be run. They sit seven points off the Champions League spots with one game in hand, and will likely rue the seven points dropped in recent fixtures against Burnley, Palace and Brighton come the end of the campaign. A trip to Manchester City on the final day looks particularly daunting.
Squawka prediction: Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester.
