Tottenham Hotspur may have lost their own Premier League game this weekend against Bournemouth, but their top four rivals have all but handed them a spot in next year’s Champions League.
Spurs were in control against the Cherries in the first half before Son and Foyth were both shown straight reds either side of the half time break.
Chelsea then overtook Spurs by comfortable beating Watford 3-0 today, leaving Tottenham teetering in fourth.
Manchester United ruled themselves out of the top four race by drawing 1-1 away to Huddersfield, as it became mathematically impossible for the Red Devils to catch Spurs.
Arsenal needed a win at home to Brighton to send the race down to the final day, but they also only managed a draw.
Spurs now sit in fourth, three points ahead of the Gunners, with a superior goal difference by eight.
This means that while Tottenham are not mathematically guaranteed a top-four spot, it would take a huge and unlikely eight-goal swing on the final day.
