With the recent news of Manchester City’s ban from Europe for two seasons, the clubs down the line in the Premier League table will surely be thinking of a top 5 finish now.

After the weekend round of games, Tottenham are in 5th place and just a point behind Chelsea, while Sheffield United follow in 6th place and two points behind Chelsea.

After Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that there’s a fight for the top five and it’s going to be a big one.

Speaking to the BBC, Mourinho said: “There is a big fight. It’s going to be very hard.

“You could see yesterday Liverpool, first against the last, you could see today Villa fighting to stay in the division and us fighting for top position, how difficult is is. This is the Premier League.

“So when we speak about the fifth spot, I think for sure Wolves, Sheffield Utd, Man United, Arsenal, Everton, everyone looks to the table and week after week they say we can do it and they can.”
