The race for the top-four is seemingly one that nobody wants to win.
There has been a quite remarkable set of results this season from the so-called big six and one has to wonder who will miss out on playing in the Champions League next season.
Liverpool, of course, are all but guaranteed to be there and even with a Gentpromocode the odds will be short; they have yet to lose this season and are 16 points clear. Then there’s Manchester City, the champions, lumped in with the chasing pack. They have next to no chance of catching Jurgen Klopp’s men unless they suffer a fall never before seen in the Premier League.
Leicester City and Chelsea are next but they have hardly been setting the world alight with their own inconsistencies.
Manchester United and Arsenal, meanwhile, are almost predictably unpredictable. A 2-0 home defeat to Burnley that say many a Ladpromocode lost says it all for United, as does 10th-placed Arsenal’s two-goal comeback against Chelsea.
So bad has it been for the top six’s established order that Tottenham Hotspur were eighth before the midweek fixtures, behind both Wolves and Sheffield United.
It has been something of a kaleidoscopic season with only Liverpool truly establishing themselves. They are on their perch and are unlikely to move.

The rest of the season, then, presents something of a challenge for Spurs: Can they string a run together?
Thus far this season, the answer has been no – they have not won more than two games in a row in the Premier League, or gone more than four games without defeat.
But if Spurs play themselves into form, the shortcomings of the others are likely to see them climb the table and potentially break into the top four.
Any team down to Arsenal – 10 points behind Chelsea – could still make the top four.
It just appears this term that nobody wants to; that will surely change as the season reaches its business end.
