It’s a nervy end to the season for Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City, as all three teams fight for a Champions League place ahead of next season.

Just one point separate the three teams, and everyone have it in their hands to make top four.

For Chelsea, a point will be enough to secure a top four place, and the Blues have a crucial home game against Wolves.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s encounter, former Liverpool and Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch, has backed Chelsea and Manchester United to scale through, and he believes Chelsea will claim third position.

He wrote in his Daily Mail column: “It will be fascinating to see how the drama plays out on Sunday when Chelsea play Wolves and Leicester and Manchester United go head-to-head.

“I will make the call now and say that Chelsea and Manchester United will finish third and fourth. If that happens, nonetheless, I will have some sympathy for Leicester.

“They have been up there all season, looking certainties to qualify for much of it, but they have run out of gas.

“There is still a glimmer of hope – never rule out a team with Jamie Vardy up front – but losing three-quarters of their defence on the run-in has been a hammer blow. They will do well to recover from the setbacks they have had on Sunday.”
