The top four spots in the Premier League and the Champions League berths that come from them are still up for grabs at the moment, but do not expect the race to be resolved before the end of the season.
Other than league leaders Manchester United, every other club in the running for the top four has work left to do and could easily be on the outside looking in come May.
For Tottenham, a few tough matches still lie ahead, but Spurs will know that a few good results should all but clinch a spot in next season's Champions League.
Meanwhile, arch-rivals Arsenal have been on a tear recently and look to be well set up for a strong run-in. Perhaps their match against Manchester United will be asking a bit too much, but the Gunners have the benefit of the easiest schedule of those remaining.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are in a strong position in third. However, with Rafael Benitez still in charge, a busy schedule ahead and a few tough matches still left, Blues fans will no doubt be a little apprehensive about their side's final few matches.
Even Manchester City have been dragged into the conversation. A loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford Monday would leave the Citizens just six points clear of fifth place. With away matches with Tottenham, Chelsea and Swansea still left after that, an improbable fall is not yet out of the question.
Throw in Everton, who are just four points behind Arsenal and with an outside chance at breaking through, and one can see the unusually crowded nature of this race for the top four.
Do not expect this to be decided before May 19.
