But amidst the disappointment of the draw against Bournemouth on Wednesday night, it was a night where Liverpool moved a point further ahead of Man City – who lost at Chelsea.
The Reds remain third, two points ahead of City, six ahead of Arsenal and United – City have one game in hand, Arsenal and United two. It’s close.
But that’s only if ignoring the fact that these three sides all have to play each other in the final weeks of the season.
United have to play Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Spurs in their final nine games.
Arsenal have to play Spurs and United.
Clearly then, points will be lost between rivals.
According to the Euro Club Index, Liverpool remain on course to finish in the top four – with a 69 percent chance of finishing in the all-important Champions League qualifying places.
Chelsea are, statistically, 100% guaranteed, while Spurs are now 99% secure thanks to their dramatic comeback at Swansea.
Man City are now third favourites, with 79% chance.
Arsenal are fifth with 36%, and United back in sixth on 18%.
It’s an interesting few weeks ahead.
