Arsenal suffered their 10th Premier League defeat of the season at Leicester City on Sunday, providing Tottenham with a huge boost in the race for Champions League qualification.
Goals from Youri Tielemans – who has been linked with a summer move to Spurs – and a Jamie Vardy brace sealed the points for Leicester with a 3-0 victory, keeping Arsenal in fifth place, four points behind their north London rivals.
Tottenham lost 1-0 to West Ham United at home on Saturday, giving their rivals for a top four finish the chance to make up ground, but those sides continue to disappoint – or quite the opposite if you’re a Spurs fan.
Manchester United face Chelsea later on Sunday. If Chelsea win or draw, it’s likely Tottenham will need just two points from their final two games – against Bournemouth away and Everton at home – to finish in the top four.
Arsenal could still finish above Spurs on goal difference in that scenario if they win their final two games. But Leicester’s 3-0 win will certainly make that more difficult for the Gunners.
The question is: how much longer can Tottenham get away with their top four rivals being totally average? Let us know your thoughts on the race for Champions League qualification in the comments section below.
