T

he race for a Premier League top-four finish remains wide open after another dramatic weekend in the top flight.

Manchester City won 1-0 at Arsenal on Sunday to extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points, with the champions elect showing little signs of slowing down any time soon.

With Man City all but guaranteed a top-four finish at this rate, that means three more automatic Champions League qualification spots are up for grabs – and anyone in the top half realistically retains some hope of landing one of those coveted places.

Manchester United are favourites to take one of those slots, beating Newcastle 3-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday night despite a below-par performance to take themselves to 49 points from 25 games – level on points with Leicester City, who won 2-1 at Aston Villa earlier in the day.

West Ham also took a huge step on Sunday, beating Tottenham to climb into fourth place above Liverpool, who were beaten at home by Everton on Saturday. That win for the Toffees at Anfield has propelled them into the conversation, while recent defeats for Arsenal and Villa leave them outsiders.

Who will finish in the Premier League top four?
