Tottenham Hotspur may have shot themselves in the foot again this weekend by losing to Bournemouth, but they may have just been handed a top-four lifeline.
Spurs were in control of their match at the Vitality Stadium before Heung Min Son and Juan Foyth were each shown straight red cards either side of half time.
A nine-man Spurs tried desperately to hold onto a point, but an injury time Nathan Ake header clutched all three points for the Cherries.
Chelsea were then able to overtake Spurs into third with a comfortable win over Watford today, but Manchester United struggled away to Huddersfield.
The Red Devils went 1-0 up, but failed to hang on, and ended up drawing the match 1-1.
This gained point puts Man United on 66 in total, four behind Tottenham in fourth, mathematically ruling Solskjaer’s side out of the top four race.
It is now a straight fight between Chelsea, Spurs, and Arsenal, although Tottenham could be handed yet another lifeline if the Gunners lose or draw to Brighton later today.
