BBC Pundit says Liverpool and Spurs will slip in top four race

With the Champions League title a huge target for City this season, Pep Guardiola will demand his players keep their foot firmly on the gas to sew up the domestic title as soon as possible, allowing them the luxury of concentrating on Europe.

"It is going to be a monumental run-in, but Chelsea now have to go on a run, hopefully starting with something, even a point against Man City at the weekend".

Former Blues winger Pat Nevin agreed, saying squad depth could decide who misses out on a top-four spot next season.

"After that it might come down to who has the nerve and who has the deepest squad".

"Liverpool are hugely reliant on having Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all fit and firing".

Liverpool fans were hoping Spurs would drop points at Crystal Palace on Sunday and they very almost did, yet the image of the Premier League is tarnished when we see the kind of tactics used by Eagles boss Roy Hodgson succeeding.

"Yes they lost Philippe Coutinho, which was a big blow, but they've coped without him".

In the photos, the reality star could be seen wearing a blue midi dress with a cheetah coat and blue sneakers. Adding, "I wouldn't put my baby at risk in any way". 'I'm actually really excited to get my body back.

"Similarly Spurs. When they don't have the trio of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Hueng-Min Son playing they can find it much harder". They also have history such as at Stamford Bridge back in 2016 when they had the title in their sights, only to self-destruct.

Antonio Conte's side won 3-1 here last season but a similar scoreline looks unlikely this time around, with City looking primed to dethrone the current champions.

While Chelsea's 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday means last season's champions are in danger of missing out on qualification for the Champions League, this story is still likely to have a few twists and turns in it.

"I will go Man United second, Liverpool third and Spurs fourth", Parlour told The Debate on Sky Sports on Monday night. Following the loss, the west London club slipped to the fifth place in the table.

The only fixture that could be overlooked is the final-day meeting with Brighton, with broadcasters not set to decide until all sides have played 37 games.

The Red Devils never finished lower than third under Sir Alex Ferguson but have failed to finish higher than fourth since he retired in 2013.
