How Chelsea can leapfrog Liverpool

Top-four race: What must happen for Chelsea to pip Liverpool to final UCL spot

May 13, 2018 By Ali M.
The battle to finish in the top four will be decided on the final day, with the Reds boasting a two-point lead over the Blues.

Sunday will see this season’s Premier League come to an end. A thrilling campaign will enter its final round, with all the remaining 10 fixtures kicking off simultaneously.

While the title was won a few rounds back, there is a lot left to play for ahead of the final Matchday. The last team to be relegated will be confirmed but all eyes will be on the top-four race.

Tottenham is guaranteed a spot in the Champions League, but the fight to finish fourth will go down to the wire. Liverpool currently holds that spot but their two-point lead over fifth-placed Chelsea could be overturned.

For the Blues to pip the Reds to that final Champions League qualification, a miracle must happen. First, the Merseyside giant must lose at home for the first time this season in their final game, against Brighton, to hand Conte’s men a lifeline.

Furthermore, the London giant must also win their fixture – a trip to Newcastle – to leapfrog Klopp’s side. An Anfield draw would not suffice as Chelsea would have to overturn Liverpool’s 15-goal advantage in goal difference. 

As a result, the Blues’ Champions League fate is not entire in their hands. All they can do is win at St. James’ Park and pray for a slip-up in Meryseyside.
