Surprisingly, Manchester United have dropped to 7th place and are 6 points behind the Blues. United played a barren draw against Wolves over the weekend and have only won once in their last five games, with just four points during that timeframe.
Wolves are also in contention for top four and are level on points with Manchester United. Wolves have also won just once in their last five league matches and have five points from those games.
