Who will finish in the top four?
Gameweek 27 of the Premier League seems to have been decisive.
Newcastle’s win over Manchester United means that Manchester City will surely win the title.
Few may have doubted United’s ability to overtake City even before the Newcastle game. But Matt Ritchie’s winner seems to have convinced everyone that Pep Guardiola will lift the trophy this season.
But the race for the top four is heating up.
While Chelsea take on West Brom on Monday night, Liverpool beat Southampton and Arsenal lost to Tottenham.
Goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah earned Liverpool maximum points at Southampton.
Harry Kane’s brilliant header gave Tottenham local bragging rights against the Gunners.

Sorry Arsenal: Liverpool & Tottenham backed by MOTD
When the subject of which clubs will finish in the top four on Match of the Day, Arsenal got no love.
According to Alan Shearer, the Gunners are now out of the running for a Champions League berth in the league.
That leaves two spots for three teams.
While Man United are still tipped to finish second, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are fighting over two UCL sports.
Phil Neville seemed to suggest that Chelsea could fall out the top four.
Why? Because Antonio Conte’s side are in indifferent form, and they cannot be relied upon.
While over at Liverpool and Tottenham, they have rather settled starting XIs, while they’ve played some incredibly football, especially going forward, this season.
