The Premier League Top Four Race
With the English Premier League being a competition that is popular around the world, Premier Bet is inviting you to a world star betting experience online or in cash for its upcoming matches and although Manchester City will soon be crowned champions, there are still plenty of other outcomes that need deciding.
The one with the most interest will be who also qualifies for next season’s Champions League and with as many as seven clubs fighting for three places, there is going to be a big struggle for all involved.
With Manchester City getting ready to lift the trophy, their neighbours Manchester United will have to make do with second and after recently winning the derby game between the two teams, the Red Devils have increased their hopes of doing so.
The win at the Etihad places them above Leicester in the Premier League table and although the 2016 champions are currently in third place, they will need to make sure they do not repeat their efforts of last season.
At the end of the 2020 season, Leicester struggled to win any of their league matches and because of this only finished fifth in the table – a position that meant they had to play in the Europa League instead.
If manager Brendan Rodgers can keep his key players fit between now and the end of the season, they will have a good chance of a top-four finish. However, they currently have a long injury list, and this could be a big problem.
One of the clubs that are also challenging the likes of Manchester United, and Leicester are Chelsea and with a new manager at the club, they are looking a lot stronger than they did a couple of months ago.
Thomas Tuchel is the new Chelsea manager, and he is already getting positive results at Stamford Bridge. Because of this, the Blues have increased their own hopes of finishing in the top-four at the end of the season.
The biggest surprise is West Ham and with the club also pushing for a place in next season’s Champions League, they may struggle to reach their target between now and the final day of the competition in May.
Another team that wants to play in the Champions League is Everton and although they have Carlo Ancelotti as their talented manager, they do not really have the players required to complete the task.
The same cannot be said about Tottenham and with Gareth Bale returning to form, the North London club will be confident that they can make a late charge to fourth place in the Premier League table.
Finally, we must not forget defending champions Liverpool. They have played poorly this season and with their own hopes fading, they may now focus on winning this year’s edition of the Champions League instead.
