Predicting Results in the Premier League Race for the Champions League

Who will win the race for a top four place?

We're another week closer to the finish of the Premier League and the identity of the top four is no clearer after the latest round of fixtures.

Tottenham were the main losers from the piece after dropping two points in an ultimately winnable game with Everton, and their position is further weakened by the absence of Gareth Bale.

Andre Villas-Boas' side haven't won a match in which Bale hasn't scored since January, and next up they face a resurgent Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea were less than convincing in a narrow 2-1 win over Sunderland on Sunday, but unlike Spurs, they did what mattered and are grinding out results at the right time of the season.

Currently floating along nicely in fifth are Arsenal. With no other commitments, Arsene Wenger's boys have chalked up 21 points from a possible 27 since losing to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and the Gunners can also lay claim to possibly the friendliest remaining fixtures of the three clubs.

Yet all of the Champions League chasers have been prone to trips and falls over the course of the campaign, so who can hold their nerve to clinch one of the two remaining spots?

I take a look at each club's remaining games and predict who will pick up what points, and how that will have a bearing on the final standings.

I'm not Nostradamus, so it's unlikely I'll be calling each of the 19 games exactly right. Let me know how you see the race going and which of the three will claim the places.
