Premier League

Chelsea might still not qualify for the Champions league even after Tottenham trash Leceister City

With Chelsea, Leceister City and Manchester United within touching distance of one another in the premier league standings. All fixtures concerning this teams are a 'must win' if any of them want a taste of UEFA's elite club football competition; the UEFA Champions league.

Towards the end of the season, breathtaking games, that would decide qualification for next seasons Champions league, are to be played such as: Tottenham vs Leceister (just concluded), Chelsea vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Wolverhampton wanderers, Manchester United vs Leceister City.

These matches will be the "seal to the cover" of these teams entire season.

A loss for either of the three is great news for the remaining two.

Such is said after Tottenham totally decapitated Leceister City, giving Chelsea and Manchester United a bigger chance to qualify for Champions league next season.

Tottenham took the lead in the sixth minute as Son got on the end of a pass from Kane, before getting the better of Bennett and getting a shot off, with Justin diverting it beyond Schmeichel.

SPURS MAKE IT 2-0 as Leicester are caught on the counter once more – Lo Celso feeding Moura, who in turn slides a neat throughball into Kane’s path. The England captain let it roll across his body, before sweeping home with his left foot.

A sensational goal from Kane made it 3-0 in the 40th minute with another counter-attack which saw Tottenham’s attackers left three-against-three with Leicester’s defence. Moura passed to Kane who, despite being forced wide, cut back inside to get past Bennett, before curling a sublime finish into the right-hand corner. Terrific!.

The match was all but done at half time

Chelsea are the ones to gain the most as all they need to qualify now is just one point, yes. Just one point.

Getting just one point might be very difficult for the blues considering the run of fixtures they face especially without Midfield general Ngolo Kante.

The blues are going against Liverpool next in the premier league.

Fans may feel, a win for Liverpool is unnecessary as they do not have anything to fight for. But trust me, Liverpool are full of "hungry players" who want to score and win matches no matter the situation or conditions.

And the final fixture against Wolverhampton wanderers. Wolverhampton wanderers play the exact type of football similar to Sheffield United who just dealth the blues 3-0. Also, wolves are in contention for UEFA Europa league qualification and will thus make the encounter a terrific one.

It is very easy you Chelsea to qualify, but the blues might STILL NOT qualify if they show lacklustre attitude towards the final premier league fixtures.

All the best for Chelsea.
