Premier League: Top four race blown wide open - Matchweek 28 review
|From the start of last season, Wolves have won 35 points from losing positions in Premier League matches, at least six more than any other side during this period (Source: premierleague.com)|
Chelsea were away at struggling Bournemouth and they have Marcos Alonso to thank for the one point they returned home with.
The Spaniard’s brace, sandwiched by two clinical finishes by the Cherries handed the Blues a point as they hope to cement their place in the top four.
Leicester lost at Norwich on Friday, a result that put the Foxes under immense pressure and a huge test of their mentality as they try to close things out.
Jamie Vardy failed a late test to miss out on the encounter and Kelechi Iheanacho failed to make the right runs to make any difference.
The loss could return to haunt Brendan Rodgers' side but with Wilfred Ndidi back in the lineup after a second-half cameo at Carrow road, they can hope to return to winning ways after a run of horrible results home and away.
Manchester United were lucky to escape with a point at Goodison Park with VAR coming to their rescue at the very end, and rightly so.
They also have their new wonder boy, Bruno Fernandes to thank for the point that could come handy in the race for top four or five, depending on what happens at the CAS for Manchester City.
Everton gave a very good fight and they will rue missed chances having benefited from David De Gea’s howler early on.
Tottenham lost at home to one team that could be leading the race for Champions League place finish, Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves took their chances and stole all three points late on, leaving Jose Mourinho with nothing but himself and his lads to blame.
With Arsenal and Sheffield out of action due to the Carabao cup final, it’s safe to say the top four is blown wide open and free for all.
There are just eight points between Chelsea in fifth and Everton in 11th, same for Arsenal in 10th but the Gunners do have a game in hand.
With games coming thick and fast, the run-in will prove shocking.
Wolves could be jaded as they march on in the Europa League, Chelsea and Arsenal are out of Europe for sure, Spurs hanging in the balance as they chase the tie in Germany, every game is a cup final for anyone that wants to make Europe next season.
