Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all embroiled in a tense race to secure Champions League qualification for next season.

As things stand, it is Tottenham and Chelsea FC who occupy the final Champions League qualification spots in the Premier League table as the race for the top four hots up.

However, things could be set to take another turn this weekend as Chelsea FC travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool FC on Sunday, and Manchester United host West Ham United.

Arsenal, meanwhile, will travel to Watford on Monday night as they look to bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 loss to Everton last time out.

As things stand, Tottenham are the favourites to finish in the top four this season, with Spurs currently priced at around 4/11 with Paddy Power.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently at around 4/6, with Arsenal at around 8/11 and Manchester United at 11/4.

If you’re looking to back one of the teams to finish in the top four this season, it may be worth looking for a bet365 new customers offer to maximise your returns.

It is basically accepted that Liverpool FC and Manchester City will occupy the first two slots in the Premier League table this season. The title race is intriguing enough, but the race for Champions League qualification is also the most closely contested that it has been in recent seasons.

Arsenal are looking to try and finish in the top four this season for the first time in two years.

The Gunners ended up sixth and without a trophy last term before they opted to bring in Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement at The Emirates last summer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are also looking to finish in the top four again, after the Blues ended up fifth and won the FA Cup in Antonio Conte’s final campaign in charge last season.

Manchester United have suffered something of a dip in form in recent weeks following the confirmation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s new permanent manager in recent weeks.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Wolves last week and were beaten 1-0 by FC Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Finally, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to keep up their fine form from recent seasons under Mauricio Pochettino. The Lilywhites have finally moved into their new stadium and look to be finding some form at a crucial stage of the campaign.

One thing is for sure, the top four race in the Premier League this season looks to be more closely contested than ever.
