Four teams are currently fighting for the top four spot, with Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United fighting for two available positions.

Spurs are currently third in the table, while Chelsea are fourth having played a game more than Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Gunners travel to Wolves this evening hoping to bounce back from Sunday’s shock 3-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace and capitalise on Chelsea’s failure to beat Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Speaking ahead of their game against Wolves, Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno has bragged that he’s sure Arsenal and Tottenham will make top four.

“I think at the end it will then be us and Tottenham,” Leno told Sky Sports with six points currently separating sixth placed Manchester United from third placed Spurs, who have played a game more.

“I believe in our quality and we have everything in our own hands. I don’t mind about the other teams though, if we are in the top four everything is OK for me!”

Just like Chelsea, Arsenal also have another route to qualify for the Champions League next season by winning the Europa League, and Leno added that it’ll be a tough one.

“Both ways are very difficult,” he added. “We play Valencia, who are a strong team, then in the final we could play Chelsea. That is very difficult and in the Premier League we have three away games.

“I can’t say which way is more difficult…We have to focus on every game and win against Wolves. I think 10 points could be enough, but I don’t know.”
