ANALYSIS: The Premier top FOUR race

Only eight matches remaining to be played in the 2020-21 Premier League season. While Manchester City appear to be running away with the title race, there is still plenty at stake this season with a handful of teams battling for a top-four spot and UEFA Champions League qualification.

Manchester United, Leicester City, Chelsea, West Ham, Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham all have their eyes on a top-four spot and every game for the rest of the season will impact the race.

Manchester United secured another valuable three points on Sunday, coming from behind to get a win against Brighton at Old Trafford and taking advantage of a weekend when their rivals dropped points.

On Saturday, Leicester City and Chelsea both suffered defeats, while Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham held to a draw against relegation-threatened Newcastle United on sunday.
