'Top four' race looks to be over

Tottenham's win at Chelsea on Sunday should have ended the race for a top four finish and now all that is left is to decide who finishes second.

Spurs deserve credit for coming from behind to comprehensively beat a Chelsea team that have struggled to lift themselves far too often this season and with all four English teams going straight into the Champions League group stages without a play-off next season, you might say it doesn't matter who finishes second.

Yet Liverpool fans are desperate to try and overhaul Manchester United in the final weeks of the season and Spurs could also be in the mix for a second-place finish as well as they have a game in hand on the two teams ahead of them.

Playing for second is not the ambition for any of these great clubs, but Manchester City have had the Premier League title wrapped up for a long time now and the rest are looking to pick up the scraps they have left behind.
