With the Premier League title all but on its way to Anfield, all eyes will on the top four spots when the season restarts to see who can qualify for the Champions League next season.

Tottenham have their work cut out to dine to European football’s top table once again due to the fact they currently find themselves in eighth place, seven points behind rivals Chelsea in fourth.

The Lilywhites could drop down to ninth place before they kick-off against Manchester United due to the facg Arsenal will play their game in hand on the 17 June, although they have a tough away trip to the Etihad Stadium where they face Manchester City.

However, a fifth-place finish can also be enough to achieve Champions League qualification if Manchester City’s ban by UEFA is upheld or reduced to one year (Evening Standard).

With Leicester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Sheffield United, Wolves, Spurs and Arsenal competing for two or three remaining spots, it looks like the race could go down to the wire.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear from that list that Tottenham, Manchester United and Wolves have the easier run-in compared to the other sides. Chelsea have an extremely difficult finish and realistically need to build up a decent points tally to ensure they do not fall out of the top four in the final three games. I believe we have as good as chance as any team to qualify for the Champions League, now that Mourinho has a fully fit squad at his disposal.
