Liverpool’s Champions League hopes suffered a major blow in the Premier League against Newcastle United. Chelsea, West Ham, Liverpool and Tottenham all have five Premier League games remaining. Meanwhile, Leicester City and Everton both have six. We have analysed the run-in for Jurgen Klopp’s men compared to everyone else.

Remaining fixtures for Liverpool

Manchester United (A), Southampton (H), West Brom (A), Burnley (A), Crystal Palace (H).

In the 10 games, the Reds have played against the bottom six they only have won just two. Looking to their last games, the Reds could still have hope for a top-four finish.

Remaining fixtures for Chelsea

Fulham (H), Manchester City (A), Arsenal (H), Leicester City (H), Aston Villa (A)

Thomas Tuchel’s side also have the FA Cup final and a Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid to come. The Blues also have the toughest joint run-in of all the clubs in the race for the top four.

Remaining fixtures for Leicester City

Crystal Palace (H), Southampton (A), Newcastle (H), Manchester United (A), Chelsea (H), Tottenham (A)

Leicester have the joint toughest run-in of games to come between now and the end of the season. The Foxes should take maximum points from their next three games.

Remaining fixtures West Ham

Burnley (A), Everton (H), Brighton (A), West Brom (A), Southampton (H)

The game against Everton will be a tough test. But their final four games are more favourable.

Remaining fixtures Everton

Aston Villa (H), West Ham (A), Aston Villa (A), Sheffield United (H), Wolves (H), Manchester City (A)

Carlo Ancelotti’s side set for a tough run towards the end of the campaign. The Blues also have to play Aston Villa twice in the remaining six games.

Tottenham remaining fixtures

Sheffield United (H), Leeds United (A), Wolves (H), Aston Villa (H), Leicester (A).

Tottenham’s run-in is also not the easiest. Ryan Mason’s side have probably left themselves too much to do. But if they will be able to earn maximum points from their next four games, they can still have a chance.
