Our weekly series, Run-In, keeps you fully updated about all the various battles happening up and down the Premier League.

Below we focus on the top four and the all-important race for UEFA Champions League qualification, which is more interesting than it has been for the past decade, and probably longer.

This will be epic.


Premier League top four fight: run-in analysis

Premier League leaders Manchester City have sealed a top-four spot as well as second-placed Manchester United, leaving two Champions League spots for Grab. Six to two does not go away.

So, who else is in the mix?

Leicester City have 10 points between Leicester City in the third and Everton in the 8th, but Liverpool climbed to fifth place with 60 points and that means Tuesday’s scrap between Fox (66 points) and Chelsea (64) is a big time. There will be consequences.

West Ham’s 1–1 draw with Brighton on Saturday meant that they had better concerns for saving a place in the Europa League, as David Moyes’ men played one more match three points behind than Spurs and Everton is.
