The race for Champions League qualification seems like it will go right down to the wire with only 3 points separating Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in the table with four games to go.

Tottenham’s rivals had a chance to put some pressure on Spurs after Pochettino’s men fell to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City on Saturday but thankfully for Spurs, none of the other teams managed to take advantage of their slip up as both Arsenal and Man Utd fell to defeats against Crystal Palace and Everton respectively, while Chelsea played out a 2-2 draw against Burnley on Monday night.

Spurs arguably have the easiest fixture list among the teams as Arsenal have some tricky away fixtures to contend with while Man Utd have to play both Chelsea and Manchester City.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has backed Tottenham to qualify for next season’s Champions League but admitted that it is hard to predict who will join Spurs in the top 4.

According to Football.London, the 41-year-old told Sky Sports, “If Chelsea would have got those extra two points there would have been a huge deficit, certainly for Manchester United being five points behind (in that scenario).

“United have a game but it’s Man City at home so it’s not easy. I still think Spurs are there. I look at that now and a lot is riding on Man United vs Chelsea.

“If Man United come out of this week with four points it’s great for them. The vital game is the one against United for Chelsea.

“I keep changing my mind on who will get in but not on Spurs.”
