With the Barclays Premier League on the back burner this weekend, and Liverpool and Manchester City in their private battle for the title, the race for the remaining 2 Champions League places looks interesting. Will Arsenal and Chelsea miss out again? Will Tottenham Hotspur experience another end of season nightmare? Will Manchester United gatecrash the party?
Tottenham Hotspur Currently 3rd
Spurs, only 6 points behind leaders Liverpool, still don’t seem to be considered as potential champions and there appear to be good reasons for that. The new stadium problems, lack of new signings and their end of season form tends to let them down. Plus Son Heung-min, 9 goals in the last 10 games, has been called up by South Korea for the Asian Cup. Spurs are currently on 48 points with the predictor coming up with another 30 in their remaining 17 games.
Chelsea Currently 4th
Scoring goals is a problem again this season. Last season, with only 62 and the lowest of the Barclays Premier League’s top 6 elite clubs, Chelsea missed out. The predictor has Chelsea picking up another 41 in their remaining 17 games.
Arsenal Currently 5th
Arsenal were a shambles at the back against Liverpool and even conceded 3 goals against Southampton. They need reinforcements to mount a serious top 4 challenge. The predictor has Arsenal United collecting another 34 points this season.
Manchester United Currently 6th
Like Arsenal, there are serious question marks about the Manchester United’s defense but they have the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer good feel factor and Progba in the zone. The predictor has Manchester United collecting another 41 points this season.
