Sunday was a critical day in the Premier League as the final two spots in the top four were all but confirmed.

Chelsea who began the weekend in fourth place went one better, as they were the only one of the four teams still in with a chance of making it into next season’s UEFA Champions League, to pick up a win.

The 3-0 thumping of Watford at Stamford Bridge, coupled with Tottenham’s loss the previous day to Bournemouth had taken Chelsea third with one game to play.

However, that game (at Leicester) was rendered quite meaningless following draws for man United at Huddersfield and for Arsenal at home to Brighton.

Chelsea will play in next season’s Champions League along with Man City, Liverpool and in all likelihood, Tottenham.

The results

left Spurs three points clear of Arsenal with a goal difference of +8, meaning Arsenal would need a huge win in their final game of the season and hope Spurs lose heavily against Everton as well.

The development sparked massive social media conversation with Man Utd suffering the brunt of trolling, particularly on Twitter.

Arsenal can still qualify to the Champions League if they win the Europa League. They lead 3-1 against Valencia, heading into the second leg in Spain.

But with Chelsea looking like their likeliest final opponents, qualification to the UCL next season is not nailed on.
