The race for a top-four fin­ish King Power show­down looms

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Total Football -

In the top four since Septem­ber, Le­ices­ter are in for a nervy week to see if they can re­tain their current po­si­tion hav­ing now played a game more than most of their ri­vals.

Chelsea, in third and one point bet­ter off than the Foxes, re­main in the driv­ing seat al­though games against Liver­pool on Wed­nes­day and Wolves on the fi­nal day will be far from easy.

Manch­ester United, mean­while, have the same amount of points, 62, as Le­ices­ter in fifth and an iden­ti­cal goal dif­fer­ence. It meant an­other goal for Tot­ten­ham yes­ter­day and Manch­ester United would have moved up a place while play­ing in the FA Cup semi-fi­nal at Wem­b­ley.

Ul­ti­mately, should Manch­ester United beat West Ham in their game in hand on Wed­nes­day, and then claim a fi­nal-day draw at the King Power, they will be as­sured of a top-four fin­ish at the ex­pense of Bren­dan Rodgers’ Le­ices­ter.
