The Premier League season for 2019/20 is gradually approaching the end, with nine games left of the season.

Chelsea and Manchester United are only separated by three points as the Blues sit in fourth, while United are 5th in the league.

Over the weekend, Chelsea and Manchester United produced some fantastic performances as the Blues defeated Everton 4-0, while United beat Manchester City 2-0.

Former EPL star Alan Shearer has admitted that the final phase of the season will be pretty intense as the likes of Wolves, Sheffield United and Tottenham fight for a top four finish.

Shearer wrote in his column for The Sun: “City failed to trouble them at all for large parts. United looked hungrier throughout and were good value for a big three points.

“After some tough moments in recent times, Solskjaer has stuck with it and the players have responded.

“They now have eight clean sheets from their last ten in all competitions and are looking more solid than they have done in a long time.

“Solskjaer got the signing he wanted in January in Fernandes — who has lit up the club — and everyone else has stepped up a gear.

“Now ten games unbeaten in all competitions, United still have plenty to look forward to.

“The battle for the top four is incredibly close and looks set to go to the wire.

“Now just three points behind Chelsea with nine games to go, it is all to play for.

“With Wolves, Sheffield United and even Tottenham still in the mix it is going to make for fascinating viewing.

“It could be hard to dislodge Chelsea, though, who absolutely battered Everton yesterday and were fantastic from start to finish.”

    I think the Blues will finish in the top four if they continue like against Liverpool and Everton.
