With Arsenal sitting two points above Tottenham with four games left in the Premier League season, the race for Champions League qualification looks set to go right down to the wire.
As expected, both Spurs and Arsenal overcame Leicester and West Ham respectively on Sunday, with the Foxes and Hammers having bigger fish to fry in Europe.
That meant that the Gunners keep their two-point lead over Spurs intact going into the final four games of the season.
Here’s a look at who Arsenal have to play for the rest of the season:
Leeds (H) – 8 May
Tottenham (A) – 12 May
Newcastle (A) – 16 May
Everton (H) – 22 May
While Antonio Conte’s men have an easier finish to the campaign than their North London rivals, with Burnley and Norwich being their final two opponents, they also have the unenviable task of going to Anfield next weekend before they square off against Arsenal in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Here are Tottenham’s final four fixtures:
Liverpool (A) – 7 May
Arsenal (H) – 12 May
Burnley (H) – 15 May
Norwich (A) – 22 May
Chelsea’s defeat at Goodison Park on Sunday means that the Blues are also in danger of getting sucked into the race for Champions League qualification, with Thomas Tuchel’s men sitting just three points above Arsenal.
Wolves (H) – 7 May
Leeds (A) – 12 May
Leicester (H) – 20 May
Watfrod (H) – 22 May

I do not think Chelsea are catchable as I expect them to win at least two of their remaining four games. Even if we lose at Anfield and Arsenal beat Leeds, we will still be only five points behind Mikel Arteta’s men heading into the North London derby.
So, as long as we can beat Arsenal at home, the race for fourth is still very much on. I can see the Gunners being held to a draw by Newcastle while Everton could be fighting for their lives on the final day of the season.
