With only six weeks of the Premier League season remaining the battle for the Champions League places is tight with six clubs locked in a fight for the two remaining spots.

Manchester City and Manchester United look nailed on to finish the campaign in first and second leaving two spots available for qualification to Europe’s premier competition via the Premier League.

As it stands Leicester City are third with 56 points with Tottenham seventh on 49, two ahead of Everton in eighth spot with the Toffees having two games in hand on all above them.

Tottenham’s defeat to Manchester United saw them miss the chance to close the gap to fourth place West Ham to three points, but with seven games remaining Jose Mourinho’s side are not out of the hunt just yet.

Here, we take a look at Tottenham’s remaining Premier League fixtures and how they compare to Leicester, West Ham, Chelsea, reigning champions Liverpool, and Everton – with the Toffees playing one of their two games in hand on Monday night.

May 1: Sheffield United (H)

May 8: Leeds (A)

May 12: Wolves (H)

May 15: Aston Villa (H)

May 23: Leicester (A)

Spurs are now six points behind West Ham following yesterday’s defeat against Manchester United, who themselves are a healthy nine clear of Chelsea in fifth-place – and with just seven matches remaining.

You would think that one more defeat would spell the end of their top-four charge, although Tottenham do have a Carabao Cup final to look forward to this month and a win there over Manchester City could put a spring back into the Lilywhites steps.

Leicester fixtures

April 22: West Brom (H)

April 26: Crystal Palace (H)

May 1: Southampton (A)

May 8: Newcastle (H)

May 11: Man United (A)

Consistently in and around the top-four positions throughout this season, the Foxes did fall away at a similar stage 12 months ago – and that will serve as inspiration to the other contenders.

Despite losing out to the Hammers yesterday, Brendan Rodgers and his side do have some favourable contests to come, before a tough triple-header finale against Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs.

West Ham fixtures

April 17: Newcastle (A)

April 24: Chelsea (H)

May 1: Burnley (A)

May 8: Everton (H)

May 11: Brighton (A)

May 15: West Brom (A)

May 23: Southampton (H)

The team currently in pole position for fourth spot are this season’s surprise package West Ham.

Following an extraordinary 2021, David Moyes has his side in the top four and as things stand the Hammers have only two top half sides left to play this season against Chelsea and Everton.

The Jesse Lingard inspired side have never qualified for the Champions League before so it will be as much a test of character as of skill for the Hammers.

Chelsea fixtures

April 20: Brighton (H)

April 24: West Ham (A)

May 1: Fulham (H)

May 8: Man City (A)

May 12: Arsenal (H)

May 15: Leicester (H)

May 23: Aston Villa (A)

Chelsea could qualify for next season’s Champions Legaue by winning this year’s edition but are just one point back from West Ham as things stand in the league.

A tough final four fixtures of the campaign will be a test for Thomas Tuchel’s team and the clash with West Ham in two weeks time could be a key one.

Liverpool fixtures

April 19: Leeds (A)

April 24: Newcastle (H)

May 1: Man United (A)

May 8: Southampton (H)

May 11: West Brom (A)

May 15: Burnley (A)

May 23: Crystal Palace (H)

A torrid run of form after Christmas saw Liverpool relinquish their one-season hold on the Premier League title – but it seems to be business as usual for Jurgen Klopp’s side over the last couple of weeks.

Liverpool won’t be relishing a trip to Leeds next up, especially after what they did to City, but five of their other six fixtures are against teams in the lower reaches of the table.

Everton fixtures

April 12: Brighton (A)

April 16: Tottenham (H)

April 23: Arsenal (A)

May 1: Aston Villa (H)

May 8: West Ham (A)

May 11: Sheffield United (H)

May 15: Wolves (H)

May 23: Man City (A)

TBC: Aston Villa (A)

Don’t count them out just yet. Everton may be sitting in eighth-place as things stand, but they do have two games in hand on the other five clubs locked in battle.

One of those comes against lowly Brighton tomorrow night. Victory in both, meanwhile, would put the Toffees into sixth-place – only two points shy of surprise package West Ham.

The verdict: There is no doubt it will be a tough ask for Tottenham to qualify for the Champions League following defeat against Manchester United.

Not only do Spurs need to get back to winning ways but they need to do so consistently and hope others around them fade away.

However, in a season that has consistently thrown up surprises, not all hope is lost just yet for Spurs fans. With a relatively friendly fixture list in their hands if Spurs can get a run going there is still an outside chance of hosting European football on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings next season.
