The race for the top four this season is one of the strongest the Premier League has experienced.

Up till this stage of the season, it’s still hard to predict who will miss out and who will make it to the Champions League next season.

Just one point separate Chelsea from Leicester City and Manchester United, and with two games to go, the fixtures are very tricky.

Chelsea have Liverpool and Wolves to play. Leicester City have Tottenham and Manchester United, while United have West Ham and of course the Foxes.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has backed Chelsea to come through their tough run-in and secure Champions League football next season as he expects Chelsea to at least beat Wolves. He also believes Manchester United will join Chelsea in the top four.

Robbie Savage suggested Leicester would lose one of their two remaining games during a segment on BT Sport, and Ferdinand chimed in: “Yeah I agree. I looked at it at first and thought Liverpool and Wolves, which are Chelsea’s games, they’re going to struggle.

“But I think Chelsea will beat Wolves last day of the season, something to play for. And then I think that West Ham will do Man United a favour.

“I just think Man United’s run, the way they’ve been playing, they’re scintillating at the moment and I just think they win both their last two games and then they definitely qualify.”
