Mourinho on top four as Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool scrap

Well, we did a lot of math and thinkin' this past week about what it would take for Arsenal to sneak into that last Champions League place.

Jurgen Klopp's side are still not assured of a place in the top four but can make certain of their participation in next season's Champions League if they win their final two games of the season.

We're almost at the end of the Premier League season.

Liverpool's performances of late have visibly drifted from the explosive attacking football that granted the team such an impressive start to the season yet they have also earned key away wins.

Petr Cech has warned Liverpool that Arsenal are ready to capitalise on any slip-ups from the Reds as the race for a top-four finish hots up.

"Obviously every footballer wants to be playing in the Premier League, myself included", said the 24-year-old.

Chelsea is one win away from clinching the Premier League title and already has qualified for next season's Champions League.

'We Finally Agree': Trump Retweets Rosie O'Donnell on Comey Firing
Instead, they've ramped up their calls for a special prosecutor to take over the Trump-Russia case - a decision that lies exclusively in the hands of Rosenstein.

Should the matter remain unresolved this weekend, Swansea will still fancy their chances of staying up going into the final game of the season as they host West Brom and Hull host Tottenham.

A 39th Premier League decider between the Gunners and the Reds could be on if the clubs finish the season on the same points, same goal difference, same goals scored and same goals conceded.

Arsenal's only chance to sneak into fourth now is if Liverpool drop points.

Manchester United carries a 1-0 lead into Thursday's Europa League semifinal second-leg game against Celta Vigo.

"We are going to learn from the mistakes we made this season and we are going to take it to next season", Wijnaldum told Sky Sports News.

Should that happen, Mourinho could once again use a trip to north London to get some minutes into the legs of players returning from injury, such as Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata, and blood more youngsters like Axel Tuanzebe and Scott McTominay.
