Probably just a battle of the current top 5 for these spots.

Best West Ham for 20 years. One of the worst Tottenham for the last 10 years. Going to be hard to hold them at bay for much longer surely?

Would Spurs being challenging City if they had signed Conte from the start?

Doesn’t the whole jinxing in sport only work when you are behind that team in the standings and not when you are 1 point in front with two matches in hand? :p

It's a miracle we are in this spot. From how bad we've been for the majority of it. Can't expect the miracle to continue with such a poor squad. Conte is good but surely not that good

It’s a case of the new manger bounce but also that your squad wasn’t playing for Nuno. Inevitable that a decent squad would put in decent performances.

Cut it out. What’s so miraculous? The six richest clubs finishing in top six places…shocked to be here.

If we can keep playing the way we are we will give it a good shake.

Sides do have games in hand on us, but they still have to win those games to get in front of us. Gonna be tight.

But this is the greatest football East London has seen since they invented football ;)
Which is why it’s giving me the greatest of belly laughs.

Their best ever squad and still worse than and United and Spurs team who’ve both sacked managers and the gunners who bizarrely persist with the work experience kid.

And they lost their cup final as well.

4th will be between the North London clubs. West Ham have fallen away (injuries have played a huge part in that) and United still look miles off the pace.

Crazy how well Arsenal have gone of late and now seem the favourites for the 4th place cup.

Of late? They have the second most points in the league over the last 365-370 days.

Yeah but they seem to go through troughs. Like great moments then in the mud, then great run of games, then in the mud.

The stat RPCB had suggests even with those troughs they’ve been more consistent than most sides.

Chelsea really are falling back into the pack. Just looking at the table and always better to have points on the board than games in hand but Arsenal can draw level with them on points if they win their games in hand and Spurs can go by them if they win their games, in fact they have 5 games in hand and only need to win four of them to go past Chelsea.

Chelsea in a big rut. Makes that top four race a little more exciting now too.
