The current table of the top of the Premier League looks as follows:
1 Leicester 34 21 10 3 59-33 73
2 Tottenham 34 19 11 4 64-25 68
3 Man City 33 18 6 9 61-33 60
4 Arsenal 33 17 9 7 56-34 60
5 Man United 33 16 8 9 40-30 56
6 West Ham 33 13 14 6 54-42 53
The most the gunners can hope for this Premier League season is a top three finish, which will automatically qualify the team for the Champions League in 2016/17. A forth place finish would obviously force Arsenal to play two potentially very difficult qualification games against a team like Inter from Serie A or Villareal from La Liga. So a top three finish is of course very important.
The main competitor for the third spot is Manchester City. As it stands right now Manchester City is ahead of Arsenal due to better goal difference. Today City is traveling to Newcastle and they are big favourites to win the game. And if they do win the game it will put a lot of pressure on Arsenal to win their game against West Bromwich on Thursday.
Ahead of Manchester City’s game later this evening the betting companies interestingly enough favour Arsenal over Manchester City to finish in the top three. Arsenal has a fairly easy schedule in the last five games and that should be taken into consideration. But the most interesting game is of course the game against Manchester City on May 8th. Even though the game is played on the Etihad Stadium, Arsenal is a slight favourite to win the race over Manchester City and claim the third place finish. Betfair has 8/11 on Arsenal finishing third and 9/10 on Manchester City finishing third.
