The run-in: United's race for a top-four place

Tuesday 26 March 2019 07:00

The battle for a top-four place in the 2018/19 Premier League looks set to go right down to the wire.

Manchester United are currently fifth in the table, two points adrift of Arsenal. Tottenham are a single point ahead of their north London neighbours in third position while fellow capital club Chelsea remain very much in the mix in sixth, a point adrift of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

Liverpool and Manchester City are clear at the top and, unless something extraordinary happens, appear set to scrap it out for the title.

Of course, United and Spurs also have Champions League commitments, while Arsenal and Chelsea are pursuing Europa League glory - and another possible avenue into next season's Champions League.

United will face Cardiff City on the final day of the Premier League season.

So, with eight league games left for each of the clubs, what does the run-in have in store? We take a club-by-club look...
