This is awesome. Well, unless you’re a fan of one of the teams embroiled in the battle and seem to be doing their best to throw away their chance of Champions League action.

I’m looking at you, Chelsea, Leicester City and Man United fans, as the Premier League top four took some wild turns over the last few days with Chelsea and Leicester hammered at Sheffield United an Bournemouth respectively, while Man United coughed up a late lead at home to Southampton.

Pressure is starting to show as the final 270 minutes of the season is here.

With Manchester City no longer banned from UEFA competitions, only the top four teams will qualify for the Champions League for next season as fifth-place was set to be included in the UCL.

Below we look at the current standings in the top four race and the remaining schedule for the teams still in with a chance of finishing in fourth.
