Although Tottenham opened up an impressive lead over their top four rivals on Tuesday night with a late 1-0 win over Brighton, both Man United and Arsenal had the chance to close the gap last night.

Manchester United welcomed bitter rivals Man City to Old Trafford, while Arsenal visited high flying Wolves in the Premier League.

Fortunately for Tottenham, both rivals for the Champions League spots lost convincingly, with Arsenal losing 3-1 to Wolves, and United 2-0 to City.

All four of the clubs fighting for those final two spots have now played the same number of games, meaning we can have a much better idea of who will qualify third and fourth.

Spurs are now three points clear of Chelsea, four points ahead of Arsenal, and a whopping six beyond Man United.

Tottenham also have the added bonus of having a far superior goal difference to all three challengers, and are now hot favourites to finish in third again.

Spurs have home ties against West Ham and Everton, as well as an away match at Bournemouth to come.
