Manchester City made one more giant step towards winning the title, but it’s Chelsea who achieved the most during the weekend.

Chelsea play host to Newcastle on Monday night, but the Blues still won over the weekend games despite not having played a ball.

A few weeks ago, Chelsea were lagging behind in the race for top four, and there were fears that Chelsea may never qualify for Europe’s elite competition. But prior to the weekend’s games, Chelsea found themselves just a point behind fourth placed Liverpool.

Interestingly, almost all Chelsea’s neighbours in the race for top four either lost or drew their game.

On Saturday, fourth placed Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City, thus ensuring that even a point will take Chelsea into third. Also, Tottenham dropped points against Manchester City and Aston Villa dropped points as well, with a loss and a draw respectively.

On Sunday, Manchester United played a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened West Brom, while Fulham inflicted a surprise 2-0 defeat on Everton. Everton are two points behind Chelsea with a game in hand.

Indeed, Chelsea have their own destiny in their hands, if they are to seal a top four place.
