EPL table 2016-17: Premier League top four predictions

While Chelsea lead the Premier League table by 10 points with just eight games remaining, the real excitement is in seeing who will miss out on a top-four finish.

Champions League football is on the line with six clubs other than Chelsea competing for the three remaining spots in the competition via the domestic route.

Tottenham still retain faint hopes of lifting the title despite Chelsea’s dominance, though a top-four finish seems increasingly likely despite Harry Kane’s injury layoff as Spurs look to say goodbye to White Hart Lane in style.

Arsenal are in serious trouble of missing out on Europe’s elite club competition for the first time in 20 years, although Manchester United can still qualify for the Champions League via the back door if they go all the way in the Europa League.

Pep Guardiola arrived in Manchester as the heavy favourite to win the title, but City’s pereformances – as with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool – have lacked consistency in the long run.

With so much at stake, use our chart to see how Standard Sport’s experts think the top four will look at the end of the season…
