Tottenham Hotspur may have lost again in the Premier League this weekend, but that hasn’t dented their chances of finishing in the top four.

If anything, the chances of Spurs securing Champions League next season have somehow increased over the course of the latest game week.

Spurs lost 1-0 at home to West Ham, wasting the chance to get their own race sewn up this weekend.

However, Arsenal also slumped to their third defeat in a week, after they suffered a first-half red card in their 3-0 loss to Leicester.

Chelsea then had the chance to go level on points with Spurs as they faced an away trip to Old Trafford this evening, but they too failed to earn themselves a win.

Spurs now sit on 70 points, with Chelsea on 68, Arsenal on 66, and Man United on 65.

Realistically, two points will now be enough for Tottenham to book a place in the Champions League for next season, as their goal difference puts them a notch ahead of the others.

However, if they want to lock down third place, they will need a win and a draw from their final two matches away to Bournemouth and home to Everton.
